Pros : The location is stunning. The view of the beach from the heights is just breath taking. That will sum up the pros. Cons : The entire property is springled across the coast to give you a glimpse of the beach and sea, that also means that this is a kilometer long property. To go from one place to... More

Overall a good experience. There are some negative reviews about this place but if you can overlook few small things nothing better. Obviously the price we pay such things should not happen but ok i didnot let such events be my vacation spoiler (I will list them down below). Pointers before booking this property --Go for this property if you... More

I stayed here on a offsite with the company recently for the weekend. I have to say initially when I saw the photos on the website I had high expectations. The photos were beautiful and looked like a luxurious resort. I am not saying it's not but overall impression was that it was relatively old and needs some good renovations... More

Stunning views practically from the moment you reach the property, which is huge. I stayed in a single room facing the garden, steps away from the beach. Each room feels like it's own little bungalow, a little slice of paradise. I will say that some things look a little old, maybe needs a bit of polishing, which takes away from... More

Recently stayed at Leela for 3 nights. Excellent View. Mesmerizing wind and Nature. Best place for those who love sea. Good food. Good breakfast. However, live counter was ok. They have a beach side restaurant also. Ideal place to relax. Old but very well maintained property and equipped with modern amenities. Gym is maintained but not fully equipped. Staff is... More
