The Machan, located approximately two hours away from Pune, is an eco-resort which offers a range of unique treehouses situated up to 40 feet above the forest canopy, allowing for great views and cool weather. The Machan is located in Jambulne, one of the 25 biological hotspots in the world. What we love about this resort is the ‘up in the air’ vibe of staying here. The treehouses are secluded and beautifully done up with hardwood floors and large windows which allow for the fog to literally enter our room.
The view is green as far as the eye can see, with not a man-made structure in sight. Heritage, Canopy, Forest, Jungle Sunset and Cabin are their treehouse options. If you’re worried about the insects, don’t be. We were pleasantly surprised to find the rooms completely clean and bug-free; and there's a bottle of Hit in the bathroom in case of unexpected visitors. The rooms don’t have air-conditioning; but if you’re like us, you might prefer to spend more time on the rooms’ decks for the view.
