Extensive Range

Extensive Range but repetitive menu ... may get bored when stay is longer! There is a place attached to swimming pool and sea shore as view. There is also an air conditioned room to avoid the sultry humid weather.

At the terrace you get both english and Indian food. The Indian food itself is of two types 'South Indian' and 'North Indian' If you go for the buffet you can taste a wide variety of food and different types of dessert

Gob smacking food, whether breakfast, lunch or dinner. The menu options never repeated for the 3 days that we stayed. We loved the kerlal cuisine prepared by chef. For valentines day dinner, the menu was even more elaborate and sumptuous. For a foodie, there are very few 5 star places which are actully worth visiting only for food.. and this... More

With both Indian and Keralan choices of buffet, this was a curry lovers delight. Try the Garlic Nan's (nothing like in the UK) plus the Perathas. The Indian wine - SULA - especially the savignon blanc, is very good and worth a try; especially the Sula Brut sparkling wine.

This place is right next to the infinity pool, which drops into the expanse of the Arabian sea. From here you get a full un obstructed view of the sea right up to the horizon. They have a happy hour session from 4 to 7 PM, and this is one place you can laze around sipping either coffee or some... More

The Terrace Restaurant at the Leela must surely rank among the most scenic locations for dining at a restaurant anywhere. On a broad terrace beside the rooftop swimming pool, overlooking the magnifcent Kovalam Cove in the Arabian Sea, it has a large open seating area and a smaller enclosed air-conditioned hall. We chose to be seated inside for our Saturday... More

Relax, sit-down, feel the breeze, enjoy the service and relish the food .. which is multi-cuisine. Staff and Chef are all helpful. Best to take a table towards the water.
