An award-winning eco-resort in Lonavala. The Machan is a story of dwellings that rise above the forest floor and form a symbiotic relationship with their natural surroundings. All of its individual accommodations are floating in the air, with enchanting views and elegant rustic interiors. Its carbon footprint is minimal - with its energy generated solely through solar and wind. Located in Jambulne, one of 25 biological hotspots of the world and a mere 2.5 Drive from Mumbai (1.5 Hours from Pune), the Machan makes for an accessible weekend getaway. We invite you to take some time away from work and immerse yourself in this one of a kind experience. Reconnect with family, friends and loved ones in the comfort and privacy of this truly exclusive retreat.

The property is beautiful with well curated interiors. The expansive view of the forest is something. Do expect inscets here and there. The food has limited but decent options, and I wouldn't write home about their desserts. Staff who stood out: Pinka ans Sneha - Super sweet and friendly. Pinka very specifically got us a surprise photo frame Abhay/Abbas- very politely helped out with the luggage Restaurant manager/staff who lent me WiFi when I needed it

Here, one can immerse themselves in the ethereal embrace of nature, feeling the pulsating cosmic energy that resonates through every leaf, every whispering breeze. Machan beckons adventurers and seekers alike to witness the harmonious dance of the elements, where the rustling of leaves orchestrates a symphony of serenity. As you traverse the winding paths and ascend to the elevated abodes, a sense of awe envelops your soul, for Machan is more than just a destination—it is an experience of transcendence. Each moment spent here is a communion with the divine, as if the universe itself has chosen this sacred space to reveal its secrets. To visit Machan is to embark on a journey of self-discovery, where the boundaries between the mundane and the mystical blur, and the essence of existence is unveiled in all its splendor.
