the place is really good and more so just 90 minutes drive from Mumbai. The location of each and every room is just perfect, the room just differ by their size and not by view. the break fast was average. The executive rooms did not have a king size bed and hence had to settle by joining 2 beds. the... More

Had been to Dukes for a couple of nights, and was most disappointed with the experience. While the location is pretty decent, the resort on the whole did not live upto expectations AT ALL. Very limited space and activities in the resort. And for the prices being charged, the maintenance is very poor - I saw broken tiles in the... More

The best is the location of the hotel and location of Deluxe room. It is just awesome. Flip points - They do not have King Size BED , but have Queen Size beds which makes it uncomfortable as the BEDS shift while you sleep . Would suggest few KING size beds as well. Though the view outside balcony was awesome... More
