    It's a very nice place with nature at its best, however the Heritage Machan needs privacy like 3 rooms to be privatised with attached bathrooms & also need to be air conditioned as it was too hot during our stay period. Else everything is fine.

    A long overdue, we finally visited The Machan for a short visit end of this August. Needless to say, the experience was a pure bliss. Be it the misty drive, the rain kissed property or the aesthetically designed cottages, The Machan is worth many visits....More
