Heritage Machan
Built around a wild fig tree towering above the forest floor, the Heritage Machan is a treehouse that hangs over the edge of a precipice. The Crow’s nest is an elevated platform that offers an unrestricted view of the verdant expanse of the over 25 acres of forested land that is a world in itself.

Bringing the ancient concept of a "star bed" to the modern era, our luxurious Starlight Machans have a translucent, retractable roof for guests to enjoy the pitter-patter of the rains in the Monsoons and the starry night sky in the Winters & Summers.
