        Amazing Hotel, with Great Views”

        I stayed in this property over a weekend, we loved the rooms seem to be recently renovated property and it has been maintained well, Size of the rooms are fairly large we had interconnecting rooms which offered good amount of space to walk around and had great view. They have a good point to look at the panorama view which the resort offers, they have a decent place for the kids to play and some recreational activity to keep you active, The Pool & restaurant were closed due to Covid-19 regulations, However, you can find some decent places close by to have your lunch or dinner with 5-10 Km in the vicinity. Staff are more courteous and offer more help when needed. Loved the overall experience, would definitely visit again soon as long as the price are lower

        Exceptional”

        It's a beautiful property. However the cottages are overpriced. We spent almost 20k for one night, that's a lot! also the pool area is too deep for most people and everyone was crowding around the 5 feet area, making it a very uncomfortable experience. Pool-time should be fun ideally. So if you are planning a trip to Dukes, carry a float/ life jacket and dive straight into the deep as you'll have some space to actually swim :D

        i had booked The Dukes Retreat for 3 couples and we all had an amazing time. Due to govt regulations, sightseeing was banned in nearby points. But we had a great time in resort. Must appreciate hospitality/ service of all the staff (even in late night hours). Food taste, room cleaning, entire property is so good, it's all value for money.

        Visited this place for Anniversary. They decorated room with nice balloons. Everything starting from check-in, safety measures, room service was fab. Rooms are too good with very nice view and quiet big. Room service was very quick. Food was tasty. The only thing we felt that food options can be increased while looking at this price however still manageable. Thank you The Duke's Retreat for making our special day such memorable.

        during the trip, we stayed in two resorts. one is the duke's retreat and the other one is a five-star resort. I would say I am delighted with the duke's retreat over a five-star resort because of its view from room, service, and food.

        Food is bit costly, but no doubt, worth place!!”

        This place is our 2nd home! Amazing location, very well maintained, great staff. The only down side is - food is bit costly. But again, look at overall value and live with at least portion of it. You won't repent and enjoy it a lot!!

        Excellent Weekend Stay!”

        Pros: Good location, Beautiful valley view rooms, very helpful and excellent staff - whether it was vallet parking, reception, room service, the restaurant or the pool, the staff truly knew the meaning of hospitality. The food was really yummy. Buffet breakfast spread was huge and excellent, my family relished it the most. Cons: Food and beverage prices were overpriced may it be the restaurant or room service rates were at a all time high!
