I would consider this as the one of my most favourite hotels. It has a spectacular view and the property has something to offer for everyone. If you are planning to come here, I would recommend that you do not plan to do anything outside of the hotel - 2 or 3 nights should be just good enough. However to... More

Almost all rooms are facing the shore. Perfect for viewing the sunset. Brilliant service and ambience just like any other leela property. Loved the private pool having the Horizon effect to it. A walk around the property would be worth the walk!

Staying at The Leela Palace was one superb experience. We were there for business purposes so the usual corporate courtesy was expected but I found the staff to be courteous beyond expectation. Under the time constraint, we could only do the boat ride, jump into the infinity pool and chill out at the private beach: all three were awesome. The... More

I have stayed in many Leela hotels in India and this was my third trip to kovulam in February this year. It is truly a breathtaking location however the attention to detail is missing also their customer service was not up to much.I was very surprised about that as I know the Leela prides itself on that.I did wonder if...

I rarely write reviews, as the ones I've read are often unnecessarily unkind, poor and written by people who don't understand the demands of a business which requires a lot of people spinning a lot of plates all at the same time! I have worked in a number of these plate spinning positions and am now a Head Chef and... More

If you want to relax and enjoy the view from your balcony, this is the place. I would love to go back to this place and do nothing. The staff is courteous. However, I did have a problem in the business centre. There were many mosquitoes and despite repeated request they couldn't not arrange for a mosquito repellent. Otherwise, the... More

Situated far from crowd on a hillock. The beach is not private but good one with less or no outside people there. Balcony of the room provides excellent view of the Arabian sea. Swimming pool is superb. Food is fantastic.

We traveled here with our infant son (4 months old then) with the primary intent to kick back and relax. We intended to spend some quality time on what we assumed was a private beach (think Taj, Goa; more on that later). We were given the traditional welcome on arrival, complete with the sea shell garland and fresh coconut water.... More

This is my second stay there. Once in 2007 and now. There is a bit of change in the customer service part... they have fallen a bit behind, and hence my four star instead of the five star. Nevertheless the place remains my favourite hotel in Kovalam. We along with my sister's and son's families were checking into three rooms.... More
