After carefully looking at almost all resorts available in Lonavala-Khandala, we selected The Dukes Retreat due to its location. This resort is elevated than most other resorts. Although its just above the highway, that will not matter much inside the rooms. We stayed there at room number 317 (executive room, 3rd floor). higher floors are recommended. The staff is very...

The hotel have very nice view of the corner of the Highway & advantage of the hill top. The food quality & ambiance is too good. The rooms are much comfortable & spacious with very good hill view. The best timing for a year is raining time. Lots of activities for the kids & adults too, Was too good experience.

We never had an opportunity to stay at the Dukes Retreat and decided to experience the hotel. We hoped that since it was the middle of the week, the hotel would be relatively empty, we were surprised that each of their 80 rooms were occupied, and even more surprised that there was no buzz associated with a packed hotel! Our...

One the quaint resorts in Khandala, away from the hussle of the busy streets of Lonavala. The rooms are spacious, good pool and a spa to complete the experience. The only down side is the road noise from the highway below but you cant hear it inside the rooms. The view from the breakfast restaurant is superb in the morning.

We booked from Japan and received prompt warm assistance with arranging extra beds and guide. The staff were genuinely exceptional in every department. They hailed from all over India , though young, and looked after us like family. The thermometer needed for my wife early morning, the extra blanket for my mother, the attentive service during dining all made our...

Despite knowing that the temperatures won't be any gentle, we headed out to Lonavala for the weekend and decided to stay at The Duke's Retreat. Finding the hotel is pretty easy and you need to drive up hill to the reception. The first impression is great. Smooth check in and I was given a room with a partial valley view...
