We stayed in the property for 2 days. Property is very beautiful with the most courteous staff. Property constructed on a cliff, making it one of its kind. It has a private beach, which is highly maintained. Leela has helped me and my friends to enjoy our kovalam experience at its best .

We weren't sure where to stay in Kovalam but through reviews decided on the Leela. We had booked a standard room at the hotel and were shown to our room. It was very nice with a large bathroom and a big balcony but it didn't have the privacy we were looking for. We asked the front desk agent if there... More

We stayed at The Club at the Leela. The staff were incredibly attentive, providing several complimentary sevices such as a personal butler, wi-fi and laundry service. The views were magnificent and every nook and cranny of the hotel was clean. For the three nights that we stayed there we were treated like royalty. At the cafe, where we had most... More

I stayed at the Leela for a few days with my 14 year old daughter when we visited Trivandrum for a family friend's wedding. We really enjoyed the hotel, the private beach, the badminton courts, the pool and the restaurants. The staff were helpful and always available for any questions or assistance. The monsoon season waves on the large rocks... More

Amazing service. Amazing property. Amazing staff. Stayed at club sea view room from 6-9 Aug '14 and I still cant get it out of my soul. Dip in the infinity pool makes you forget about the chaos of Mumbai and life back in the city. The vista's from the balcony and splashing music of the waves takes all the stress... More
