My family of 5 (3 boys ages 10, 7, and 5) had a fantastic time at The Machan. We saw shooting stars, beautiful sunsets, so much wild life, and fresh air. Highly recommended for anyone that wants a taste of the outdoors. The wild life tour was lead by a professional that knew everything about the local plants and animals, and the unique history of the property. Our kids didn’t even notice the absence of TV and video games. We will definitely be going back next year!

Our experience of the Machan was fantastic . The location is very scenic and amidst nature. The staff was very friendly and courteous . The food was also excellent. The constant sound of the stream passing nearby was very soothing. It was a great place to recharge and relax.

The real Machan is just like the name. Far above the ground, between the sky and the ground, surrounded by trees and birds. Mountains and bushes in the distance. Nowhere unnaturality…only pure nature yet very comfortable. No phone, tv or internet. Just nature and nature everywhere and you, lost in it’s beauty. Great place to recharge yourself, I don't know how two days went by. Good food too. Only 2-3 unnecessary calls were made.. Thanks Machan!!
