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...
