We stayed at the Leela in March 2015 at the end of three weeks traveling down the coast of India. We were really excited about staying here at the end of our trip as the photos on the website looked fantastic and it had great reviews, but compared to some of the other lovely hotels that we stayed at in...

The Leela is a great Hotel to stay, nothing is too much trouble for the staff, they made us feel special. It is a beautiful hotel. The food is exceptional with great choice. We recommend theTide restuarante. All the Staff smile all the time and were very attentive.

We went with a group of people and unfortunately while the location and view is fantastic there seems to be a lack of management attention on service - internet took a while to get working for everyone - most of our names got mixed up or misspelled - both business centres ( club and main house) were not functional -...

Arrived tired and hot and met Ganesh on reception who was brilliant. I wasn't sure which room to take so he showed me one by the beach which I knew wasn't for me. Very dark and dated. He then showed me one in the Club wing which was terrific. This is a new wing entirely self contained with great contemporary... More

Also,they serve typical South... More

The hotel is the best in the resort. The staff are its greatest asset particularly those in the restaurant.The choice of food available is excellent. Although the rooms are very nice, they are beginning to look a little tired. If the star rating is to be maintained some money needs to be spent on small items such as upgrading the... More

What an amazing place to stay !!! I was with a family of 6 adults and 2 infants and we enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The rooms were a bit let down in terms of size, but the Leela folks made it all up the excellent service. The property is just too good in-terms of location. Although it is on the... More
