Standing true to its name, the Woods is decked in a decadence of wood. A ground-based accommodation, this couple-friendly Machan is located a short walk away from the reception.
As you set foot in the Woods, you will notice that this accommodation is tastefully decorated with handpicked relics and artwork to create an authentic period feel. Even the solid brass light fixtures have been salvaged from ancient ships from an era gone by.
Raised on platforms high above the forest floor with a panoramic view of the evergreen surroundings, the Canopy Machan is a beacon of tranquility. The glass façade adorning the Canopy Machan provides uninterrupted views of the lush greenery surrounding the property.
