Nature at its best

7.0/7
Posted 17 Aug, 2018

Beautiful resort with classy ambience surrounded by Jungle. What a greenery maintained even during peak summers. We were group of people with family during summers. The way we were welcomed and taken care is unforgettable. These guys know the hospitality and maintain the quality of service. Smiling staff and welcoming team. Amazing homely cooked food was served. Activities are so many that we did not realize our vacation of 3 days got over so quickly. One of the most memorable safari tour with Village Machaan. Thanks guys. Gunja and Swanand Thanks.

Conference in Pench - Best Arrangements

7.0/7
Posted 19 Jul, 2017

We visited Village Machaan for conference with a group of 45 persons. The requirements were very specific and fixed itinerary. This was the first event of ours outside Nagpur and we were bit doubtful. Village Machaan team made us so very comfortable and provided everything beyond our expectations. The glass cottages are spacious and well done. Especially the Machan is a unique thing. Amazing medium spicy food was served with variety and was delicious. Staff was courteous throughout the trip. The best thing we all liked about them was there was never a no from them. They were always polite and the reply was we will try. The cluster seating conference arrangements were done. They are equipped with all the requirements like podium, projector and everything. Evening snacks were served to us at different venues everyday. Jungle safari was booked through them and packed breakfast has been a different adventure having it in the Jungle. Evening arrangements of cocktail snacks and tribal dance was appreciated by everyone. The lush greenery maintained by them even in summer is outstanding. Ashish and Vinod took special care of our group Overall the trip was amazing and we will plan every year one for our company and of course with family its going to be only V Village Machaan in Pench Thank you team and management of Machaan. Most recommended place in Pench.

Best place to stay - Pench National Park

7.0/7
Posted 11 Jul, 2017

Holiday is welcome thought for any one in this busy lives. My husband and I managed to plan that for Pench. We heard a lot about Vvillage Machaan from our friends So we arrived here and were pleasantly surprised that what ever our friends had spoken about resort was true and much more. After a hectic life it was a great relaxation to mind and soul in the green environments. Children were well looked after and had a great time running around and playing in the lovely lawns. The seasonal flowers that they have are so beautiful and few of them were never seen before. Delicious non spicy food and the courteous staff was an icing on the cake. Spacious cottages with two extra beds were very comfortable. We loved the Machaan that they have. Jungle safari has been an adventure since that was the first wildlife trip for us but was a wonderful experience. All in all we had a wonderful holiday and the word GREEN begins and ends at Village Machaan. Strongly advise people to visit. Thanks Village Machaan

Great base for safaris in PENCH National Park

5/5
Posted 20 Nov, 2015

A group of us stayed here for a week in May, doing two safaris a day. The cottages are delightful - spacious, comfortable and clean with good hot showers and set in delightful gardens which attract many interesting birds. The food is typical of the area and very good, even if desserts tend to be incredibly sweet. The biggest asset is the staff - always friendly and cheerful, with a good sense of humour, they seemed to be really happy to work there and couldn't have been more helpful. Small problems were dealt with immediately. They made us feel really at home and we missed them when we moved on to Kanha, a much more commercial and crowded reserve. We felt privileged to have a whole week at Pench and thought it an extremely managed reserve though some of the guides were not as knowledgeable about birds as others, most of those allocated to us had binocular eyes backed by excellent knowledge and experience. Not only did we enjoy the wonderful diversity of birds, and mammals, we were given thrilling sightings of tigers. But as these are unpredictable and not everyone is so lucky, or there for so long, I would only recommend this sort of holiday for those who have a wider interest than tigers and can take sufficient pleasure from the natural environment itself and all the wildlife it sustains, to make the long, bumpy jeep drives worthwhile, whether or not you are lucky enough to see a tiger. Pench gave us a really memorable holiday and we would always want to stay at Village Machaan if we managed a return to Pench.

Beautiful hotel with amazing staff and spa

5/5
Posted 19 Dec, 2016

I will definitely go back there someday. This is a small boutique resort but 5 star service. Best massage I ever had! The food was great and the service in the restaurant was excellent. The rooms were nice and don't skip the outdoor activities that they have. Oasis in the middle of forest is all I can say. Set on many acres of beautiful lawns and trees. You feel rejuvenated. Peaceful environment, courteous staff, beautiful. Surrounding, awesome food. The super deluxe cottages are spacious and Machaan gives you the feel of heaven. Stayed in this hotel on Nov 01, 2016. It was a late check-in (11. 00 pm) and the front desk provided all the support to feel comfortable. They in fact were ready to serve dinner also. I gave them the safari ticket and they made all the arrangement for Vehicle and other formalities. Just took care of everything. Rooms was cottage type and was big, neat and clean !! The bathroom was wooo. Breakfast was also nice and packed for safari. They provided the facility of late checkout which made us more comfortable. Really a good property and royal treatment by the staff. Thanks team to make my trip wonderful.

Most recommended - Village Machaan

5/5
Posted 2 Dec, 2016

Excellent arrangements from the host Mr. Sharma. Very nice service, comfortable stay arrangements. We were a group of 9 families recommended by one of our friend for this resort. Being a huge group size were quiet doubtful in finalizing the resort but the reviews helped us to decide along with information provided by reservation team on safari bookings and zones. The smooth and transparent reservation procedure is appreciated. Smiling staff and was extremely hospitable, friendly and courteous. Seemed to be very genuine people and always ready to help Maintained lawns, greenery, recreation zone every single thing in the resort was excellent. Food was served with our preferred choices, children were playing and enjoying. Menu was set keeping them in mind, less spicy delicious homely food. Outdoor recreation specially the bicycle and swimming pool is missed by all of us. Enjoyed a lot. Morning tea at Machaan and bush breakfast in the jungle with the naturalist is unforgettable. Enjoyed the ride of safari but not more than the stay in resort Jungle safari is said to be main attraction in Pench, but I would say that the services, and experience at Village Machaan beats all of that. One must visit this resort and shall experience the nature in Pench Most recommended resort and 7*.

Rejuvenating and relaxing place

4.2/5
Posted 25 Aug, 2014

We needed a break from the hustle-tussle life of Mumbai. We had not been for a proper holiday since 2. 5 year due to our small baby. And this served the perfect holiday as I returned fully rejuvenated and relaxed. They have big cottages. The first look of the cottage itself gave a beautiful feeling. The rooms were spacious with wooden flooring. The beds were lavish and cosy. Bathroom was huge with an attached dressing room and wardrobes. There was a small water stream visible from the dressing room window. We were told that animals do come to drink water at times. That gave a chill and made the stay all the more adventurous. The place was neat and tidy. The housekeeping department cleaned the room very nicely each day. The LCD TV had most channels with good clarity. There was lot of greenery around and the area was serene. There was a recreation room where even kids and could have fun. Carom, TT, Badminton, Pool etc were there. They arrange for a safari which was good. They took us to local temple, dam, and waterfall besides the jungle safari. Though I found 5k for safari a bit more. Though we could not spot the much anticipated Tiger or leopard but there were ample of deer and Sāmbhar. Jungle walk is another interesting activity. Moving around the jungle with the feeling that next moment an animal could be in front of you gives an adrenaline rush. And then one can just rest, get up late, eat, talk, sit and enjoy the serene beauty all around. They also arranged for a big tub in the garden area of the cottage for my daughter and she had lot of fun bathing in it. Even bonfire was put on the small terrace on the cottage. The lunch and dinner were good with many varieties but the breakfast lacked variety and taste. There were no fruits as we would expect in breakfast. Even the juice was chargeable. There were no starters, soup in lunch and dinner. Sweet was just average. Another issue was there were lot of spider and cobwebs, not in the room, but on the way to dining hall or any other place, even on the terrace. But overall, besides these small points, it was a wonderful retreat and I would recommend the resort to everyone.

Absolutely stunning experience

5/5
Posted 19 Feb, 2014

There are vacations and there are memorable vacations. Ones that just stick in your head and never go away. Vacations that touch your heart so deeply, you will never forget. And it's not just the place, in fact, it's never about the place on a vacation, it's about the personal experiences, the people you meet, the things you experience. Make no mistake Pench National Park is an incredible place, a must-visit for every nature lover, a breath taking tiger reserve. But this review is not about Pench, that's for another day. This review is about a tucked away resort booked without much expectation. A resort that we were going to reach early on a Saturday morning via a 6:30 am flight from Bangalore. There were glowing reviews of it on-line, but we didn't want to trust online reviews till we experienced it for ourselves. And what an experience it was. Right from our airport pick up at Nagpur being there on time (at 7:45 am), to Mr. Pramod from Unwind Inc. Following up on our trip on an early Sunday morning, and again on a late Tuesday night. That kind of personalized care and attention in itself is a rare find. The property, about 100 kms from Nagpur, is tucked away at the far end of an incline, removed from the other resorts, as quiet as can be. A stream runs through it, and the forest is right at its edge. The landscaping is immaculately maintained, the lawns lush, delicate flowers beaming - no small feat in the harsh heat of the afternoon sun. There are about fourteen villas, each well spaced out, with a sun room, large bed and Bath, thoughtful furnishing, and a private sit-out or machaan on top. We stayed two nights and for every meal (we had all our meals at the resort), the staff fretted about us, cared for us just like a mother would. Uttam had delicious menu items to suggest even before our asking. And as we enjoyed one meal he would have planned ahead for the next. He stood there, our personal butler, for each meal, always attentive to anything we might need. Food had every single attention to detail. With Paneer Tikka there was mint sauce on the side, with Chinese there was soy sauce, chilli sauce and chili vinegar, with toast there was jam, butter, pickle and sauce on the side might seem trivial, but consider this, Pench is a remote jungle reserve, the nearest big town from where supplies must come, save the locally procured vegetables, is Nagpur, a good bumpy two hour ride each way. And it wasn't just Uttam, it was his entire team. And it wasn't just service, it was simply superior service. On the day of our safari, our tea was ready at 5:45 am, our packed picnic breakfast of sandwiches was ready by 6 am, and when we arrived tired from our safari trip our favourite foods were served us for lunch. If you stay and dine frequently at the five star chains you know that their standardized hospitality, but V Village takes it one step further. They deliver soulful service, hospitality that consistently goes beyond the call of duty. They raise the bar on what good service means. That good service is not fancy talk, or polished cutlery, or staff with professional hospitality degrees, it is about one personal care in serving you. It is the feeling that the person who served you did so with great joy from their heart, with great passion and dedication. That service will touch your heart so deeply that it will transform you. So our three days at the resort was transformations. In the end it wasn't so much the private open bonfire the staff set up for us, or the absolutely stunning surprise private candle light dinner they set up in the open, against the jungle, or the careful foil or cling wrap they put to bring us snacks a short distance from their dining room to our villa. It was what it all symbolized - the genuine love in their service. If you ever encounter that kind of service, stop and share it because it is rare and the world needs more of it; because that kind of service truly has the power to change the world. Are there areas the resort could improve in? Absolutely. Which business doesn't? A simple document on what to bring would be helpful. We didn't bring toothpaste. But these small slips are greatly eclipsed by their service (staff bicycled late in the evening to the nearest corner store to grab us toothpaste, no easy task when you're in as remote a place as Pench). So on the flight back it got me thinking, that this is how businesses are built. Through good service, through passion and dedication, through happy customers. Businesses are built slowly, never overnight; they are built one hard earned review at a time. And who better to give business to, than those who return the favour with so much care and goodwill. If there's one vacation you take, this year, or in the next five years, decade, or your entire life, try V Village Resorts, at the Pench Tiger Reserve. You will come away transformed.
