I have visited Dukes many a times, not always for food though. I used to go to the dhabas on the old highway but this place has no comparison. The food spread is good and worth the money. The food is the class of a 5* with good display and taste. Must visit if you want to spend a lovely... More

The hotel is a well known one in Khandala which offers great views of the nearby cliff. I was there for a day on an office retreat. View from the room is excellent. Some of the rooms on the lower floors have balcony so be proactive and request for rooms with balcony. Food is average and the swimming pool is... More

Went there in the third week of Dec 2015. Great Food, Good service courteous staff. I was told by many that the food is average but I dont agree. The morning buffet was excellent and in room dining was equally good. We had a small kid and the staff was more than considerate towards our demands. My experience for the... More

A very well spread property with nice and cozy rooms and very tasty morning breakfast. The valley view is stunning, try opting for a valley view room, the management is very helpful and courteous. Overall a great weekend getaway!

Me & my wife went to Dukes Retreat this week. We booked about 2 weeks ago. It was truly an amazing experience... We started in the morning by car and reached Dukes within 1 hr. 15 min. from Navi Mumbai... It was an amazing journey up to Khandala through Mumbai- Pune Express High-way. Although the schedule check-in time is 1:00pm,we... More

We stayed at this lovely property during one of our business trips. Duke's is located at a very vantage point with beautiful view of the mountains and the Mumbai-Pune expressway. Travelling from Mumbai is easy as one just has to take the first Lonavala exit and then take a u-turn and within a km you enter Duke's Retreat. Its a... More
