We stayed at the Leela for two nights. The Beach View room was beautiful. It overlooked the sea and the balcony was a nice place to sit in the mornings and evenings. The breakfast spread has a wide variety and well presented. The staff were helpful and courteous. The location of this hotel could not be better. They have a... More

THE LEELA IS GREAT.....We stayed for 5 nights in a club room. The Hotel and staff are amazing - food is excellent and we had an great time. We had room 1507 which was nicely positioned on the top floor so the room was larger - higher ceiling and convenient for reception. The rooms have a large balcony with chairs... More

Had an amazing time staying at the Leela club. Luckily we were upgraded for free due to a large wedding party who wanted to stay all together so we and a few other lucky travelers were all upgraded to make room! The club room, private pool and restaurant (only ate there for breakfast) were wonderful. Yes the wine is expensive,... More

We stayed two weeks at this hotel in February and it was quite wonderful. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and made us feel so welcome. I would especially mention Khan (a member of the pool staff) who looked after us extremely well. Once he knows which sun bed you like and how you like it positioned it is there... More

The Leela Kovalam is a first class hotel with all the facilities and amenities that one would expect. The service is first rate and ever present, and it is hard to find fault. My one very small criticism would be that snack dining outside mealtimes is rather limited (for a UK visitor). Personalised chauffeur driven tours were provided on request.... More

This place is truly amazing. The experience has been fantastic right from check-in. The view from the rooms ( we chose standard room) was great. The food overall is good though there are also good options to explore outside as well. The room can clean and tidy. However I was little disappointed by the private beach. Though it is clean...
