What a lovely hotel. He rooms, the service, the ambience everything was lovely. Kids enjoyed the pool while I thoroughly enjoyed the spa and the pampering. Definitely a recommended hotel. Only of course being a 5 star was very pricey.

As always Leela hotels never let you down .In all respects it was a memorable experience.The club rooms are nice though a little small for a family .The dishes churned out by the chef were simply awesome ,kids loved the infinity pool .Rooms facing the beach are by far the best .
