          Stayed 1 night in May 2022


          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.

          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
