Having spent two weeks exploring Rajahsthan which was tiring it was delightful to come for peace and quiet in Kovalam. Wonderful welcome by the staff (including Duty Manager Sam) and easy check in to lovely room (2309). The room overlooks the Arabian Sea and is wonderfully peaceful, well-appointed and spacious. The beach is attractive with attentive staff, Krishnan was excellent.... More

I am quite surprised at the no 7 position of this property in the Kovalam tripadvisor rankings. The club room we were given had a stunning view with all basic amenities and contrary to most hotels today it was comfortable. The food was great and we had the best breakfast in the pool side overlooking the sea. My baby got... More

Awesome place to spend your honeymoon. The key to The Leela Kovalam is its cliff-top setting looking out over pristine beaches to the far horizon. The resort has world class dining, seamless service, and palatial accommodations. It is a short distance from the Trivandrum International Airport.

We recently stayed at the Leela and expected the same accommodation as the other Leela hotels, the rooms are no where close to a 5 * rating!! The reception area is amazing and is very well disguised to conceal the poor quality of the rooms. The staff are excellent , service is good, but the rooms need urgent attention .... More

If you are looking for a relaxed holiday in luxury, the Leela is the place. Gorgeous hotel by the sea. The hotel staff make the experience outstanding. Probably the best customer service I have seen. The food is very average. Nothing exotic. You can take long walks, get the butler to handle manage everything for you. All in all, a... More
