Description from owner


Built around a wild fig free 45 feet above the forest floor, the Heritage Machan is a tree house that hangs over the edge of a precipice. Our guests love its unique architectural design, elegant interiors and the breathtaking views of the valley beneath it

The Heritage Machan is designed as a family unit with an open plan. It has three distinctive sleeping areas on different levels, with two private full bathrooms. Its interiors are elegant and luxurious, with each detail personally addressed to. This Machan can comfortably accommodate four to six adults, and is perfect for families, couples or a group of friends.

Details of the Heritage Machan:

The Heritage Machan has four levels – a) The Main Deck b) The Hanging Room c) The Loft d) The Crow’s nest

The main deck (18 ft. x 45 ft.) is entirely encapsulated in glass and provides unimpeded spectacular views of the valley. Devoid of standard brick and concrete walls, it instills a feeling of being in the great outdoors while continuing to enjoy the comforts of modern amenities. The main deck comprises of a large lounge area, a dining table for six and a screened double bed. Extending from the deck are two balconies, one facing east and other towards the north. There are also two full bathrooms with rain showers, and the main bathroom is equipped with a bathtub as well.

A spiral staircase guides one down to the Hanging Room (12ft. x 20ft.), which is suspended from the main deck. With three sides of the room comprising of glass walls, you will get the feeling of being submerged within the forest canopy.

A short flight of stairs, from the main deck, lead up to the loft. An east facing small room with a huge view – a mountain peak towards the east and a deep valley to its north. You can watch the sun and moon rise from the comfort of its double bed.

The crow’s nest, is a further 40 ft. above the main deck. It is certainly worth the climb to get to the top of this structure for a 360° aerial view of Jambulne and its surrounding areas. The nest also makes for a great sit out to lounge on at night, under a blanket of never-ending stars.


Our modern bathrooms are equipped with hot/cold running water and eco-friendly toiletries. Other services include daily housekeeping (free of charge), morning newspaper (upon request) and in-room dining. For our guided evening nature trails & star gazing sessions, please get in touch with our 24-hour front desk.
