One of the oldest and best situated properties in Khandala, it has a beautiful view of the valley and vast grounds - much better than any other hotel can provide. Though the entire place looks a bit dated given its age, it has good service and lovely ambience in its restaurant and especially its bar despite average food quality. Choose...

We had visited this place from work. Property was old but decently maintained. Was very let down by the level of service. The staff here needs to undergo training on service and hospitality.

Dukes Retreat has best view in Khandala. Hotel has many restaurants. The restaurant at 3 floor has best view. If you want to have room with best view, insist room on 3rd floor. Rooms on second floor have trees obstructing good view. Good food. Staff is very good. Only problem is very limited choice of wine.

We stayed at the hotel, a nice property, lots of activities can be done for all age groups. The food was good, but they should improve a bit on service part. The activities at the hotel included cross now shooting, archery, Target shooting, etc were really good, something to look for at this property.

Excellent place at driving distance from Mumbai. Located on a height which gives good view of the hill station lonavala. Quite spacious place with good amenities and food quality. Good place to organize group activities if you are going with a large family group or with corporate team.
