What a wonderful location with a wonderful view. My relatives have gone crazy post wedding and still in hangover. I had my wedding on 30-31st January. The food, the management was amazing no complaints at all. The guests were totally contented and happy. Thankyou ravi shekhar and ankit ji for all the co operation. Thankyou yatin for amazing food
On 30th and 31st January, my sister got married at dukes retreat. The venue was very beautiful. We almost had 300 guests on 30th night, the management was fantastic. Our guests were really happy with the service. Food was also really very tasty. Special thanks to Mr ravishekhar and Ankit.
The location as well as the hospitality of the hotel staff managed by Mr.Ravishekhar is excellent.Special mention to Chef Ashutosh and his team for curating and managing a scrumptious menu for all the wedding guests.It was a very pleasant stay and experience.
So I had been to The Dukes Retreat on 25th and 26th Jan for a wedding, below was my experience: Stay - Super awesome rooms and with valley view, it's like cherry on the cake. Checkin process was very smooth and team supporting the checkin were very enthusiastic and supportive. Place - The property has a large scenic ground with valley view and it is so mesmerizing and provides banquet facilities. The panorama cafe had all the view that your need while relaxing and having your cup of tea. Food - I would like to mention that almost all the delicacies in each of the functions were fantastic and each regional food had its OG flavour say it an Punjabi, marwadi, south indian, Chinese or Italian cuisine. The chef Mr. Ashutosh use personally visit the buffet to ensure that guests are getting good-quality food being served both got and cold as per the cuisine. Hospitality - 10/10 without any doubt, the staff ensured that stay, food and functions are running smoothly and all the help was provided sometimes even without asking..that's the alertness level..i really appreciated the same. Even the smallest request at the last minute if possible for management was taken into consideration and best possible solution was provided. Last but not the least our coordinator and the head for managing the entire resort Mr. Ravi Shankar and his support Mr. Ankit with always a smiling face executed the arrangements with full commitment. Once again a big Thank you to the management for making it an memorable event for us..!!…
My family stayed in this property in Jan 2023 for 2 days and we had a wonderful experience. This property has probably the best valley view in lonavala/khandala and is very scenic. The property is very well maintained and has multiple amenities/ spots inside to relax and rejuvenate. The rooms are very nice, have a great view and offer all facilities one expects from a resort. Would like to specially callout help the customer relationship manager @Ankit provided during our stay. I connected with him before my parents checked in and he made sure that all requests are being taken care of. All the arrangements were nicely made and with enough attention to details. Will definitely recommend this resort if you are looking for a property with a nice view. Definitely worth the price and more.…
Enjoyed the stay at Dukes Retreat. Good breakfast, amazing location. The staff is very courteous and helpful. The in-room dining is fairly expensive but there are multiple nice restaurant options available around the hotel as it is located close to the market area.
The stay with our family was very good. The service was awesome. The breakfast spread was good but was crowded on Christmas weekend which is understandable. The rooms were neat and clean, quite big and comfortable for the kids. Room service was exceptional.. The housekeeper Saidi was excellent in his work. The air-conditioning had issues and sometimes ventilation needed service as some wierd smells were captured in the room. On the whole lovely views, lovely memorable stay.
We booked very heavily priced new year celebration Gala Dinner & room from 31st Dec to 1st Jan. They charged us about 25 K per night for 2 persons. But the arrangements were poor, the cheapest brand of liquor they served, cold food they served, unprofessional anchor & DJ, unprofessional dance performances. Nothing was of good quality. They spoiled our new year celebration. Don’t book them for events, they don’t know how to manage and take care of guests in a party.
Breathtaking view along with good food and hospitality specially served by MR. BIKRAM KUMAR MONDAL who was very polite cudos to the resort. Have visited after long time and bought back that same delight
Had a nice stay at the Dukes Retreat. Room and other facilities, especially the lawns, are good, which are kind of expected though at this price point. Their resturant is very attractive. I have been there several times, particularly for the ambience and location. We had afternoon snacks and the dinner buffet. Though there is no valley view at night, the Christmas decorations made the place vibrant and excellent hospitality and courtesy of the staff, especially Mr Bikram Mondal, brought warmth to our experience.
