Me and my husband decided to get out of mumbai on a saturday and we zeroed down on the dukes retreat.. We took the all meals package and booked ourselves into the deluxe room.. the meals are not bad and there is quite a bit of variety for both the vegetarians as well as the non vegetarians.. the property is nice (though there was some renovation going on) and the staff is helpful.. the pool is small but they have a nice table tennis, carrom and video game room which ensures that the patrons have a pleasant evening.. it is recommended to stay in the deluxe room as these rooms have a direct valley view.. the only issue being the staff keeps on roaming outside the room which leads to slight invasion of privacy.. the hotel provides for various activities (barbeque, trekking, yoga...obviously at a cost) which is an added benefit.. the hotel also has a kids pool and a kid play area which is a bonus if u are traveling with kids.. overall a nice experience and a complete recommendation to anyone who wants to stay there..
