This majestic structure rises 45 - 55 feet in the air, offering our guests truly spectacular views of the dense forests of the Western Ghats.
The adventure begins even before you set foot in the Forest Machan. An Indiana Jones-esque wooden bridge effortlessly guides you to your floating abode. The Forest Machan's suite-like accommodations have been meticulously designed to create a cocoon of comfort set amidst timberland surroundings.
Details of the Forest Machan:
The Forest Machan comprises of three spacious suites:
Two of these suites have – a) two Sleeping Areas, b) two Full Bathrooms, c) an Outdoor Rain Shower, d) a comfy Seating Area and e) a private 220 sqft Hardwood Deck.
The third suite has – a) a Sleeping Area b) a Master Bathroom c) an Outdoor Rain Shower d) a comfy Seating Area and e) a private 220 sqft Hardwood Deck.
When you step into the latest offering from The Machan - the first thing that strikes you is the incredibly spacious and open design of these structures. Over 400 sqft of living space with vaulted ceilings and glass walls await you. Two suites even feature a second sleeping area in the form of a walk-up loft (12ft. x 10ft.).
All our suites have attached modern bathrooms complete with hot and cold running water & eco-friendly toiletries. The master bathrooms also sport bathtubs and a lovely open to sky rain shower that allows you to truly enjoy the outdoors.
Extending beyond the sleeping area is an expansive Hardwood Deck (22ft. x 10ft.). We highly recommend spending an evening gazing at the heavens above from the comfort of this private deck. This deck also has a sheltered section, which offers guests a chance to sit out in the open during the day and enjoy the fantastic views and gentle breeze.
Remember all three of our suites can be combined as one accommodation for that special friends reunion, that rare family get together or even as a corporate break.
