We visited Leela Kovalam in first week of July and stayed in the club rooms for four nights. It was an amazing experience. The best part about these rooms are its balcony which overlook the beautiful expanse of Arabian sea. One can just sit here and see the sun setting. The rooms are decent in size though the bathrooms are... More

This is a review on a week long experience in 2013 at Easter time, after a long period travelling in India and experiencing the accommodation of Indian Palaces. We took over two family superior rooms in the other more exclusive side of the property (I say that only to distinguish between the two). The quieter side is highly recommended. Kerala... More

Stayed there for 3 nights and had an amazing experience overall. Great service, beautiful resort, I recommend spending ample time at the resort as it has so much to offer. Breakfast is like no other with 100's of dishes to choose from. Truly a luxury resort and if I ever visit Kovalam again. I would not stay anywhere else but... More

The first thought that ususally comes to one's mind when one books a Leela property is 'Luxury'. It is with this frame of mind that the reservations for the Leela Koavalam were done. I had booked directly through Leela reservations (great experience) and I soon found myself coming out of Trivandrm Airport. Lo and Behold! An Audi awaits me and... More

Stressed, need a break! Stay here! Rooms are quite good and it is biggest resort of Kerala. You may not get the best of the best services, but in resorts, service expectations are already low, so it may not disappoint you. Beach is not so good beach and it is not a private beach, but still worthwhile to explore.

Probably the best property in Kovalam...mesmerizing views, wonderful service. Best for a relaxed family vacation but equally good for corporate get togethers. Great food and inviting pools. You would leave with fond memories and would feel like coming back again... Rooms are a little smaller compared to some other Leela properties, but the view would make up for it. Both... More
