We opted this place for our one day team (around 20 members) outing and didnt had an overnight stay. The location is very nice and offers you real privacy. But as a team, there is nothing much you can do at Duke's since the open space is very less. The only saving grace was the river which was flowing near... More

I had gone to Duke's Lodge twice, one from office(50 people) and with wife. Both the times, it has been an amazing experience. The place is neat with cleaning almost done 2-3 times a day. They have a beautiful swimming pool where we could just relax and play there as long as we want. While going with the office group,... More

We spent three nights at this secluded lodge. Despite booking weeks in advance and the place being half empty, when we arrived we were shown one of the cottages overlooking the other cottages, not the river. We requested one overlooking the river, which they gave us, though the plunge pool (cold not a jacuzzi!) wasn't clean. The room itself was... More

As previously reported Dukes Forest Lodge sits on the edge of a 130 acre rubber plantation, an interesting 1 hour drive from Trivandrum. The independent cottages are well appointed affording the right amount of privacy and come with a lovely balcony with beds for relaxing and a plunge pool on the lower level. We did feel that the bathroom although... More

After living for several months in India, our stay at Duke’s provided our first real escape to a place of natural beauty, peacefulness, and total relaxation. Built within a plantation of rubber trees and numerous other crops and overlooking a fast moving, crystal clear river, our elegant Keralan style cottage was clean, nicely furnished, and offered a massive bed that...

We had planned to spend four nights in Kovalam, but did not like the beach or hotel so we found Duke's in a guide book and went there. Great location in the middle of a rubber plantation. Rooms are old, big cottages each with a cold water jacuzzi. The bed was so big I had to send a text to... More
