Selecting a Machan could be very confusing as all of them are just as good. They have a total of 19 Machans and the categories available are:
The Cabin/Woods: A ground based Machan, it provides you with complete privacy and is perfect for couples.
Canopy: Its so called because 80% of this Machan is suspended, 60 feet above the ground, in the air. Its perfectly well built and safe and guests need not worry about its stability. It gives you an uninterrupted view of the Western Ghats as the entire room is glass encased. Perfect for couples.
Forest Machan: Forest Machan (for 2), is a floating cabin at a height of almost 60-65 feet above the ground (with proper support unlike canopy) which provides you with breathtaking view of the surroundings. If you are a photo enthusiast, this Machan provides you with a perfect opportunity to catch those star trails on a clear night or a perfect sunset.
Jungle Machan: If you are looking for complete privacy, go for this one without blinking. Both the types i.e. Jungle Machan (for 2) and Jungle Machan Plus (for 4), are completely hidden from view and nestled within trees providing utmost privacy. The Plus category provides you with ultimate views of the open sky above and the lush green jungle beneath. It has two wooden decks (one for each room) and two beautifully done rooms (completed with bathrooms), making the Machan look straight out of fairy tales. I would recommend this one for couples with children above 12 years. Even for couples, one could go for the Plus room, if you don’t mind those extra bucks.
Sunset Machan: These gives you mesmerising views at dusk as you could witness the sunset right from you deck. The location provides with privacy and is surrounded with lush greenery.
Heritage Machan: This was initially built only for the owners of the Machan, but now is available for guests as well. It is a family unit with three distinctive sleeping areas on different levels. The interiors are elegant and cosy, and provides with mesmerising views.
Starlight Machan: This category redefines the meaning of hideouts, providing you with ultimate privacy and luxury. It is their premium category and they leave no stone unturned to amaze their guests. The ceiling over the bed unlocks itself with just one button to give you a glimpse of an open sky. Its built on the ancient concept of “star bed” and so the name, starlight machan. The interiors are luxuriously done and the deck takes you amidst nature as soon as you step onto it. The bathrooms are super big and has an open to the sky shower. It has a hanging room beneath the main room, and a private plunge pool further below. All in all a luxurious setting amidst nature to help you unwind completely.
Machan is perfect for couples looking for digital detox and complete privacy, for families craving for family time together, a get together for friends and basically, for everyone looking for sometime with nature disconnected from the world beyond.
