The hotel is very nice, with a big lawn with good view. The food is also very nice. The rooms are a little expensive but a good place to stay with family. It has a spa and a pool with tasty breakfast. There was a small magic show going when i was there, it was fun to watch with friends... More

We had been there last July. Must say, everything was amazing abt this place. We took the lunch and dinner package and the food was absolutely brilliant. Overall worth it! The view of the hills was great from the terrace. We didnt even leave the hotel for a major part of our stay.

Lonavala is a place best enjoyed in the rains. With the first rains the town becomes jam packed with Mumbaikars and Punekars (hope that was right). This review should be read in this context. At the onset let me say, that, this has to be the worst hotel I have stayed in ever. It was raining when we reached the... More

We stayed for two days at Duke's at end of February. For a first-timer to Duke's, the view from the room will pleasantly surprise you. There was an unexpected massive downpour during our stay there, that made the views totally worthwhile. Fairly easy to navigate to and parking wasn't an issue (although rain and trees made a mess of our... More

Its not budget friendly but a must visit for one-time. Its a small place compared to other resorts. The cleanliness, staff and other things are all per 5-star standards, full marks for the same. The buffet was amazing with variety of the world.. I would recommend it only for a special occasion.
