About the hotel
17 km from Lonavala
The Machan is an award winning eco-resort, located a short drive from the town of Lonavala, and nestled in the forests of the Western Ghats (one of the 25 biological hotspots of the world). Each machan has been carefully designed to minimize any impact on its natural surroundings while offering its inhabitants spectacular views in luxurious comfort.
Located in Jambulne Village, this resort is a quick 30 minute scenic drive from Lonavala, 2.5 hour drive from Mumbai and 1.5 hour drive from Pune. The strategic location makes the resort easily accessible and a perfect weekend getaway.
Set high amidst the trees, The Machan achieves a perfect balance between nature and luxury, while maintaining a minimal environmental impact with its energy generated solely through solar and wind. It provides the visitor with a unique nature oriented experience, while keeping the impact to the environment and community negligible.
Each of our unique tree-houses are nestled 30-45 feet above the forest floor, overlooking an evergreen valley. Each machan is equipped with a private bathroom and a private deck along with creature comforts not usually expected at a forested resort: hot/cold running water and eco-friendly toiletries. Other services include daily housekeeping (free of charge), morning newspaper (upon request), in-room dining, guided nature walks & star gazing sessions.
