Travel Dates: 1) 2 July 2015 (1 room) 2) 21 & 22 August 2015 (2 rooms) Beautiful setting, by the sea - standing atop and running down the hill, and on to the beach, this is easily one of the finest locations that one could find, arguably, in this world! It could do better with the maintenance of its garden... More

One of the best hotels in Kovalam, the hotel has its own private beach. This is excellent to organise private fuctions, seminars of simply as a getaway for the weekend. The food is also awesome and tasty.

Location of the hotel is very good. The food was excellent. The staff impressed us with their hospitality. Right from hotel checkin, room service, transport (the property is very big), food service the hotel team was at their best. The 2 day stay was worth the price!

We stayed at the Leela for two nights on a tour of Kerala and it was beautiful. The setting was breathtaking. The private beach is a nice touch, as it the infinity pool (one of two pools). We ate in both restaurants and enjoyed all of our meals, especially the beach restaurant where the live band was a nice touch.... More

Great service staff who are attentive, responsive and friendly. The estate is tastefully decorated with good breakfast and tea servings. Some common areas and the room fixtures are however showing its age and its important to invest in maintenance to maintain its class.
