Our family which included an infant and kid went for a holiday during Christmas. Hotel should put more directions on the road as we initially missed the turn after getting off the expressway at Lonavala. Staff was helpful they agreed to give a room closer to lift as we had a senior citizen. The restaurant was good, had great food....

Awesome place for a short weekend getaway. Offers the best view in Khandala and Lonavala and the rooms are very spacious and well made. Opt only for the valley facing views, they are a bit expensive but totally worth the monet spent on them.

Very good location... away from the hustle bustle of the main town, overlooking the cliff. Friendly and well trained staff. We were a group of 14 people (5 families) with kids of various age ... we found the in-house dinning a bit expensive given the options. Buffet breakfast was good. we enjoyed our stay and will definitely visit again.

We had been to Dukes retreat during the long holiday of 26th Jan. It is a nice place to be with family, with good food, great ambience and very good service. The food is local so some people might find the food to be spicy but it tastes very well. Overall a great experience.
