Leela Kovalam, is a perfect place for date. Surronded on the beach, it gives you a fresh sea breeze along with a view of beach from your room window. A cool romantic place to stay & enjoy the piece. Overall this hotel is good for holiday visitors & winters are the best time to visit Kovalam.

The overall experience was good. Nice polite and courtious entrance security and reception staff. They will always greet you with namste in indian style. Even the restaurant staff was also good and would cater to the special demand.

The hotel is located 30 mins away from the airport. The pickup and drop service is excellent. The best thing about this hotel is its excellent view. One needs to stay in the club rooms to appreciate the location. The food at this hotel is okay. But service is great. Definitely a good spot to relax.
