Lonawala, Maharashtra: The dukes retreat
We had an internal training conference at the above resort from 10th Feb to 12 Feb 2011.
Conference facilities were to the mark and there was no disturbance from any outer noice etc so I would suggest this place for conferences for upto approx 100 persons at a time.
Location: It is located at place which is highest pick at that location. Since it is at top we can see the Express highway and the shooting point from the view deck created. I personally found easy reach from Mumbai as well as Pune, since I had to go there from Mumbai and while returning I had to go to Pune. In fact from Pune one can come by Local train to Lonavala in some Rs.18 ticket and take Auto costing just Rs.100.
Food: Lunch and dinners were very good and included complete course based buffet lunch and dinner was served. Jain food and Non-Veg both were available, I tested both and regular Veg food as well and found all awesome for our hungry stomach after long training session.
Rooms n Room service: 'Too specious' is the only word for the rooms. Roomservice was prompt.
So in all I am waiting for next training at the Dukes Retreat once again
