“One word - Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

I was skeptical about Leonia but i placed my trust in tripadvisor and I was rewarded! The staff were friendly, helpful and resourceful. Truly a lovely place to unwind and let go. I went with my better half for a couple of days and opted for the cascade suite. I was pleased with everything except the time taken for the room service and the time taken during check out. Nonetheless i'd recommend this place to anyone who's looking to get away from everything and relaxing i the middle of nowhere with pretty much everything at hand!

Room Tip: Opt for the cascade suite!

The layout - extremely spacious
The ambiance - peaceful
The service - over the top
We stayed in the lagoon villa rooms as well as the cascade suites and the experience was surreal.
Hats-off to the entire team for a very well managed, clean, welcoming and soothing destination.

Room Tip: if it is a couple getaway - go for the lagoon villa!!!

i had opportunity to visit leonia by celebrating my brothers reception.he is a software engineer in microsoft seattle usa and he had seen the website and informed us that he wants to celebrate his reception in leonia. we booked rooms for guests and family members.every body enjoyed and everybody had a memorable experience.The room i had was spacious and pretty,music system was awesome and i like the mood lighting and there was night mode in which stars appear on the roof.food is good and particularly chicken dishes are tasty. negative point- it is too far away from the city and approach road connected from the rajiv rahadari national highway is horrible.

Went to Leonia for a day-out with family .. chose a Monday to avoid the crowds .. so took a day off from work .. kids had their vacation anyway

Nice drive .. especially because it was reverse the direction of the commuters .. so even though we a bit late to start .. only by about 8-30 / 9 AM .. we had a nice hassle-free drive through the city .. and then a great time on the state highway to reach

The resort was quite nice.. the water facilities good .. as were the deck chairs with shades along the side of the free form pool .. though on a crowded day the number of chairs AND the crowding in the pool could be question marks

The artificial surf .. the waverider .. is actually nice .. and offers a quite unique experience .. when you first hear that the duration of the stint on this is for say 5 / 10 minutes you feel a bit unhappy .. we are fundamentally not geared to pay multi-hundred for such short durations .. but when the surf starts you realize that the time is quite well measured for optimal enjoyment

The expertise of the guide is just WOW .. as is his care for the visitors

The other "water" based game that is very nice is the one where you catapult water balloons at each other .. GOOD fun

The slide and the rain shower are usual .. not really any different from the ones elsewhere in other such parks

Once you work up a good apetite .. change and go over for lunch

We opted for a-la-carte ... even though there is a buffet option right at the water sports centre .. so that one does not need to change back from the swimwear .. very convenient .. but we did not want to stuff ourselves and had opted out

The food is JUST OUTSTANDING .. we had Indian / Mughlai .. there was a fabulous complimentary Greek Salad served before the food arrived .. it correctly provided the early signals of an extremely competent chef on the premises

Simple food ordered .. daal, chicken, mutton, roti / naan .. but, wow, were they special !!

We had opted for a-la-carte to avoid over-eating .. but the food literally transported me the glutton into a trance-like state of stupor after the meal .. even though the kids changed back and went back into the pool I simply vegetated and ruminated for the rest of the afternoon :-)

Finally, do account for a very hot sun .. and so carry appropriate cover / sun-screen / straw hat / sun-glasses in case the day of your trip dawns bright and clear

We had the advantage of a cloudy day .. even though the cover lifted later in the afternoon .. it was still rather nice .. but do bear in mind that Hyderabad sun can be very discouragingly strong any day of the year irrespective of the season

Oh, and finally, there is a person at the resort who does a fabulous pedicure for a pretty moderate price tag

This was our second visit to Leonia and I must say that we were extremely pleased and happy with the entire stay and experience at Leonia. The staff, chef, manager and the team of Leonia has gone beyond our expectation in terms service and hospitality. It is a must visit for those who are looking for a break in their routine activities. Unlike other resorts, it has excellent world class spa facilities (pleasant and professional staff), huge pool, private pool, and many outdoor activities like lawn tennis, volleyball, badminton, bungee, live theater shows, movie theater, excellent restaurants and many more.

From my 9 year old daughter:

When you go to a resort or hotel second times you don't get that much of a thrill. But at Leonia, second time I felt more thrilled. So this is the kind of hotel you would want to visit third time. The people who worked in Leonia gave me a warm welcome on the first day. When I was in Happy land, my family rented 2 bicycles with 2 seater. I was pretty scared at first but I got the hang of it and loved it. When we went to Leo splash, there were few slides but I was too scared to go on the slides. Since this was my only chance to go because there was no hotel likes Leonia, so I decided to try it. Well, I was not that scared at all. The trip was wonderful. People at Leonia's enthusiasm made my trip more fun and adventurous. The places like Happy land, Leo Splash and Leo Juventa were the best from all. This is the best hotel from all, even though it was far. Leo Juventa made my experience changed!! I could not believe that Leonia was this good. I felt more relaxed when the spa people massaged. And the Jacuzzi!! This was like changing my whole life. The restaurant Sun Moon was excellent in service and great food. On the last day of Leonia, I knew they are going to miss us, so the Chef and staff gave us a cake with writing 'Bye Bye', and they all clapped for us and we also clapped for them. Leo Bistro which we go for dinner was also good. I think they knew it was our last day so they gave us some special salad. Thank you Leonia, for making my trip so wonderful and memorable.

Room Tip: Go early for breakfast to beat the crowd
