Experience of a lifetime ”

This property is a must stay property for families, couples and even friends. The rooms are beautiful, unique and scenic. We have stayed in sunset and canopy Machan and both were mind-blowing. The property is eco-friendly and promotes nature conservation to an extent where the entire electricity within the property is generated from windmill and solar panels. I have stayed in a lot of luxury properties but by far this is the best in terms of experience. Food is good as well

Woods”

Woods machan has the vibe of a 'Cabin in the woods'. Interiors are very good and the Machan property is great with a lot of walking trails within the property. But I would recommend visiting the canopy or sunset machan if you are going all the way to this property. Also, I wish they were serving main course in the rooms as well.

Booked jungle machaan plus via Agoda as the resort's website did not show the rooms available. Agoda does not show the full details about the room, jungle machaan has a two bed, fit to house 2+2 people. Since this info was not available, and without knowing the ground truth, i had booked 2 jungle machaan plus rooms. Therefore, not only did i spend the double the money for my vacation but throughout the vacation my family was seperated in different rooms. Another wrongdoing from Agoda was that

A few items worth noting, "The Woods" are underneath "The Jungle" so not as private as you might think. "Jungle" has a lovely view and outdoor shower was unique. Bring your own food. No drinks are available, no coke, sprite, juice or anything is available but a small frig is provided. Rooms service chicken pizza was good. Tried the spa but the spa slippers on the wet floor made for a painful memory, still hurts days later. All in all its a go but bring food, drinks, hair dryer, music and arrive in a ATV.

Worst experience on our Wedding Anniversary day”

So I travelled to Machan with my husband.. The destination was my choice. I wanted to treat my husband to a luxurious amidst the nature kind of experience.. I had booked Canopy machan because of the 'on the deck bath tub' experience that it promises with the amazing view of the jungle and greenery around.. mind you outdoor bath tub comes with complete privacy. And I had booked it for just one night(for my anniversary).. The whole afternoon till the evening there were few workers working on the roof of a different machan who constantly kept staring at us.. we couldn't get into the pool or enjoy our on the deck experience.. we called service desk multiple times to take care of it but of no use.. the work continued till sunset and ruined the whole afternoon till evening for us. Worst experience I could have ever had in a high rates luxurious property like this. We paid so much just for the deck view and the open to sky bath tub experience but it was all spoiler by us and no one even apologised to us for all of this.. I feel so bad for spoiling the anniversary for my husband who needed a getaway so badly.. worst experience ever..
