Resorts in Lonavala

1. The Machan

The Machan – Live More Zone

If you’re looking for an authentic experience and not just a regular old getaway, this always gets our vote for not only the best resort in Mumbai but one of the best resorts around Mumbai. Don’t just take our word for it, and they’ve been awarded heavily by National Geographic, TripAdvisor, Lonely Planet and many more.

An eco-resort accommodation here is offered in the form of unique tree houses that up to 45 feet above the forest, with minimal impact on the surroundings, which means you’re immersed in nature. If you’re not content to just sit back and ‘be’, they have a spa, various caves you can explore, treks you can take, yoga, bonfires, and a whole lot more.

Some of their accommodation is definitely on the pricey side, so we suggest bookmarking this for a super special occasion.
