The Leela Kovalum is a gorgeous resort. Throughout all my travels in India, the Leela by far had the best service, food, and amenities. We stayed for 2 nights and took a day trip to Kanyakumari which is gorgeous. The drivers are polite, well mannered and will go out of their way to make it a pleasant experience. It is... More

Even though there is no compromise for the beautiful scenic view and the location The Leela has, the dishes in their restaurant are yet to come up to the level of expectation. I was on my way from Vizhinjam to Trivandrum when I thought of having an evening tea along with my parents at The Leela. We were very happy... More

People will find it expensive, but believe once you stay here, you know it is worth every penny spent. Same was the case with me when journeycook(a travel portal) advised me to stay here after listening to my requirements. The infinity pool is the best site and the food served at the buffet is awesome. I had booked the package... More

My review is strictly on the service aspect of the hotel. In terms of property, no doubt it is breath-taking. But as they say in the hospitality business, customer service is everything. And so would you expect from "The Leela". Unfortunately it wasn't so in our case. We decided to spend most precious of our moments - honeymoon at The... More

at times one travels to see the place and chooses hotels...and then at times one chooses a vacation purely because of the hotel....my kovalam trip happened because of this hotel...and I am so glad I took this vacation. The view from the room, breakfast venue and the pool are mind blowing and truly world class. The spa and Ayurveda centre... More

Leela Kovalam was the location for our Annual Offsite. It is a beautiful Property by the beach. The Room I stayed in had excellent view of the Arabian Sea. But the best experience was the swim the Infinity Pool on the edge of the small cliff.
