Nice Ambience

The Terrace had a buffet set up..and seating by the pool with local artists performing while you are enjoying your meal... There were a lot of options in the menu but since majority of them were "South Indian" dishes, I didn't enjoy much.. Though in the end, when the chef came to know that it was... read more

This is the heart of the Leela Kovalam Hotel, socially speaking. The 24 hr restaurant and the infinity pool always keeps the place buzzing....not to mention the friendly staff and their crowd-friendly attitude. The view of the sea is great from here obviously and the this the most photographed place in the entire resort. The Bar is also in the... More

Awesomely breathtaking views.. thats the high point! The buffet spread is good and offers great choice of local and international cusines. Their live fruits counter was great for a tropical setup. However, the service is poor - at least thats what I experienced in Oct 2014. You need to ask everything at least thrice to get it - very unlike... More

I have been here with family. View from terrace is splendid. Service is awful considering its star value. Food is ok, Villa Maya offers much much tastier food at 2/3rd price. Service is bad and it seems it goes with color of your or your friends skin. Best advice is to have a chilled beer or lemonade by evening, enjoy... More

The views are breathtaking. You sit in a traditional setup next to a fancy pool and the sea in the distance. The food is great too, and there are too many staff to serve you.
