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.

Trust me we travel a lot and distance, staying at The Machan is really an experience. Generally there are places without network coverage that we have been to and the concept and amazing facilities we experienced at Machan are worth going back. In such difficult conditions also their staffs are prompt to help you. Specifically Aakash, Jorge, Yash from front desk and Chandrashekhar from food ensured great experience for us. See you soon Tho Machan

The Machan - your best buddy for gaining a lifetime experience of living inside a dense forest. Must visit during weekdays so that you can reach there in estimated time. As, enroute to The Machan has tourists spots and you stay in traffic for a long time. Pros: Professional service from the staff Ambience Rooms and views Nature concious Cons: Bit overpriced especially on weekends and food menu Special mention to Front desk, Housekeeping, F&B Team at Exec Center Akshata, Ambedkar, Akash and everyone I've missed. Thank you Machans for making my stay a memorable one!
