What attracted me to The Machan was its name and the beautifully done interiors so well captured for the web-site.
Its not actually a Tree House Hotel but has the Tree literally living and growing through one corner of the house and has one level of the house suspended and supported by beams.
The Machan is an indulgent, passionate, beautifully decorated holiday home of the owners who have graciously given it up for people like us to come and be part of the experience and appreciate Nature and God once more considering our real lives where Greenery, chirping of the Birds and Music of the Wind is a privilege of a few.
The Machan and the Camp Canopies welcome visitors for a couple of days, get charged and back to the regular life without travelling very far away and seeing half of the world in one place !
The Machan is definitely not cheap but the service, staff, details to comfort and experience definitely make it an Once to visit places.
Its not the Taj or the Oberoi or 5 Star property but what makes it special and unique is that it is a Home and invites you to come and experience her charm and magic and warmth.
The location is not very offbeat although finding it the first time maybe daunting if one is not payong attention and the entrance road is a little rough but once inside the view from The Machan is simply fantastic!!
The Camp Canopies have their own private terraces and are stand alone and at distance form each other thereby giving the required privacy .
Its one of the few places where the website does full justice.
thank you to the Team at Machan to make my mini holidays fabulous.
