A boutique holiday villa rental service brought to you by the promoters of The Machan.
Established in 2009, The Machan is an award-winning, eco-centric, boutique luxury hospitality firm. For over a decade now, we have curated exuberant experiences for an ever-growing client base.
We fully understand the nuances of luxury hospitality, thanks to our decade-plus experience in the industry. This know-how, combined with our penchant for curating award-winning experiences has rendered us capable of managing some of the most premium accommodations across India.
How we select our “Escapes“
We believe that every home tells a unique story that adds to a traveller’s experience. We handpick and curate homes that are not just accommodations, but homes complete with a soul; homes that deliver not just a place to stay, but a complete vacation experience.
We scout for homes with the best reviews
Our custom algorithms scour through major booking sites for homes that review at an average of 4.5 stars and above. This provides us with an initial list of homes. Our dedicated Partnerships team then manually goes through this list to weed out any homes in unreliable locations and homes with pedestrian design or mediocre facilities.
We send a vacation expert for a physical visit
Our luxury hospitality expert personally goes through each and every home that is shortlisted in order to vet the property, and test and review each villa against multiple benchmarks in the luxury vacation space. This leaves us with the crème de la crème of handpicked vacation homes for your pleasure.
We perform a second series of checks on each villa
Once the villa has passed our preliminary test, a second series of checks are carried out in each villa. These tests – which are a combined effort of our Partnerships, Housekeeping and Engineering teams – are conducted to examine the nitty-gritties of the home which includes quality of bedding, quality of air conditioning, power backup, safety checks, etc. We’re fussy like that.
Bastion or bunker
After a rigorous screening process and detailed inspections on all the properties, we then ascertain whether the villa in question is well equipped to provide a top notch experience for our guests. In other words, we decide if the property is 'Prima' or not.
Only 5% of homes are truly ‘Prima’
At PrimaEscapes, curating premium experiences in premium accommodations is our gospel. As such, only villas that combine exclusivity, privacy and luxury with the warmth and comfort of a home truly qualify for the mark of excellence that is ‘Prima’. Rest assured a property once selected by PrimaEscapes is undeniably a class apart.View Properties
