We found that nothing was too much trouble. The rooms decor was a little dark but they were very comfortable with a great shower and room service excellent . The reception areas were immaculate and very attractive if a little too warm. It was very hot! The private beach was but small and well maintained and although certainly not picturesque... More

The Leela Kovalam Beach Hotel was one of the hotels we were looking forward to the most on our itinerary. After hearing greats things from family, for us it made perfect sense to end our wonderful tour on this high. However, upon arrival this Grand Hotel disappointed our expectations. Cons - Polite staff are unable to provide credible solutions to... More

Stayed at Leela Kovalam for 5 nights in March (we in fact booked 5 rooms as a part of a family reunion). Was very disappointed with the stay and quality of rooms and some services. Let me start by saying that every other Leela hotel I have experienced has been top notch and compares with the best in India, including... More

We have been on a tour of Kerala for 14 nights. We have stayed in hotels such as the holiday inn in kochin and the heritage at madurai. All the hotels that we have stayed in could not do enough for my group. Free WiFi management that listened overall a very good experiance. Now we arrive at the leela for... More

I had visited Kovalam almost a hundred times and hence I was reluctant initially to chose Leela over any other destination. But once I got there, I was really impressed. Stayed here one night with my wife. Beautiful property, amazing view of the sea from the room, lush and green garden, really nice private beach, excellent spa, impressive hospitality form... More

Amazing place with amazing people to help you. The Leela Kovalam Beach is truly one of the best Beach Resorts I have visited. Located on the beach the rooms open to the sea. The private beach, the lush green ambiance the cool breeze, etc, etc... will leave you spell bound. The best part was the INFINITY Pool. Strongly recommended.

The accommodation and public areas of the hotel are very pleasant and clean, however we experienced many frustrations during our stay which marred the overall experience. We had booked a room for three people and had to ask several times for the third bed, teacup, towel, etc, which all appeared eventually, however the third robe and slippers never did appear.... More

We stayed in a Club level room at the Leela and it was fantastic. Our room was comfortable, with a fantastic balcony and view of the Arabian Sea. It was as if our room were perched over the water and that could be seen was the endless sea. Gorgeous. The bed was comfy, pillows were perfect and the bedding was... More

The leela is a quality establishment, in a place like kovalam, play it safe and choose leela, we were moved here after the initial hotel we booked ( Niraamaya Retreats) messed up our reservations. It was such a balm to be treated hospitably by well trained staff, we really appreciated the difference. We'd recommend the leela just for its staff... More
