Excellent property which is maintained beautifully. This was one of the first resorts (before the entry of the majors into India) and consequently, may feel as if it is a tad old but the facilities as well as the property itself are beautifully maintained. Club rooms are clearly preferred - although they are considerably smaller. The view is magnificent (built... More

We booked into the club rooms - having visited 5 years ago and being very impressed. The location is impressive and the club pool area is lovely - with great views. The lunch and dinner was amazing - the chef takes personal care of each guest and cooks amazing food. Service from staff was mixed - and in some cases... More

The Leela at Kovalam, Trivandrum is an amazing place. Simply magnificent view of the sea, with lovely, spacious rooms. The Club rooms are especially wonderful as they look out into the vast expanse of the waters. Well spread out with large number of rooms and excellent arrangements for holding meetings/conventions/ seminars/conferences. Very good service, very neat and clean and good... More

I booked this stay a while ago and then read quite a few very negative reviews, and so was worried about my stay. I shouldn't have been worried though - from the moment I was met at the airport for my private transfer, to my personal check in, to my room and since, I cannot fault it here, and I... More

Last weekend, I had my dinner at this magnificent property wit scenic beaty at Kovalam. It was a damn good experience with respect to the location. My choice for a calm and relaxing weekend with sea ambiance was a great success, also with soothing sound of sea waves. Lot of service staff, however all of them were busy, unlike other... More
