Machan is most unique resort that I have stayed at. It offers complete privacy and luxury. They have a bathtub in the balcony which speaks volumes about privacy they offer. We had a memorable stay at Machan. Highly recommended.

Room tip: canopy Machan is good.

It is different experience. But Property is over priced. It is like luxury in woods. Staff is good, food is good. Away from city life. No phone calls, no internet connection. You are with yourself. Owners need to reduce tarrifs to make it more enjoyable

Extremely disappointed after paying 40k a night at the superior starlight room at Machan. The room was rodent infested, that kept us awake till 1 am, Pool was not clean, Furniture was worn out. After spending close 90k including food, totally regretting our stay. The staff is courteous, food is good, but I feel money the machan charged us was not worth the accommodation and the experience. Should have chosen Hilton Shillim water villa or Amby instead. The current management needs to look into this.

Room tip: If you have to pay as much as I did, pelase choose Hilton or Amby Valley.

Dear "Quest246811"

It is also very disappointing for us to know that you were disturbed at night. I feel very sorry for that. I really wish you could have called us for assistance. We have trained staff for this purpose.

By virtue of our forest location and that many guests get their food into their machans that these spotting happens. We keep discouraging our guests but, not every one understands.

Good to know that you liked our service and food.

You have stayed at a property with a 30 years of regenerated forest that oozes energy that no other place would. I request you to not take this as an impression and do visit us again.

Warm regards
General Manager

We stayed at machan for 2 nights. We booked the starlight machan. Our machan was out of this world and we just loved it. The place is awesome and well maintained. It’s a pie of heaven. Extremely beautiful and soul nourishing.

The flip side is the food. They have some strange rules about booking table for buffet well in advance . Without that we won’t be allowed to eat. We were never informed about this bizarre rule before check in and when we checked in at 2 pm ,we were told that we can’t take buffet as we hadn’t booked the buffet before coming!! That was some hospitality ! And ala carte was served an hour later after order.

They need us to book the table for breakfast at the dinner table previous evening, lunch has to be booked at breakfast and dinner has to be booked at lunch time. Now how can I know the perfect time when will I be hungry and that too on a holiday.
This spoils the mood for us. On top of that in room dining menu is very limited. For every food related query they explain that they are a nature resort and they dont waste food. I understand that but after paying so much if u don’t get food that too when u r travelling with a kid, it makes u wonder if u want to come back or not.
At every buffet , the moment you pick a plate Some one will come with the bill signature, and they won’t let u eat before signing the bill. Not a 5 star at all.
The buffet spread is meagre. Only saving grace is that food is tasty…whatever they have!
Looks like residential machans are a different word and the restaurant belongs to some zero star management .
Very happy with machans ….perfect 10 for them but zero for food and restaurant.
I doubt if I will ever recommend the place to anyone.

Dear "drkunalbanka"

Its so painful to know that we were unable to explain why we take prior booking and seating time, leading to such a misunderstanding. I am sure you will appreciate just like all of our guests.

In these COVID times we have to be responsible for your and our safety. To ensure that there is no crowding or waiting we have two seating times for our guests to select for all meals.

As we prepare food strictly as per the number of guests, we take advance orders as late as 3 hours prior to the meal time. Each item in the menu is cooked in its own gravy at the same time. We don't believe in storing excess food as its not sustainable. Hence we take advance orders.

I do agree that the signatures taking could have been handled better.

We look forward for your next visit

Warm Regards
General Manager
