Arriving at the Leela is an impressive experience with huge burning candles and flowers every where. The entrance and the lobby are beautifully decorated, and are also the rooms. The bathtubs in the rooms are enourmous, and there are lot of extra amenities like chocolates, bathrobes, walk in closets etc. There is a lot of staff present all the times, and you do feel, you are in a luxury hotel. The breakfast is the best I ever had in a hotel, (except for maybe the Radisson in Lübeck) - with a continental, asian and indian part. You can have fresh made eggs after your own choice, dhosas, fresh fruit salads, dim sum etc. Unfortunately there were problems with our water in the room, so we had a lot of people going in and out.The swimmingpool area is on the 3th floor, with towels and bathrobes provided, and you can ask for food to be served at your sunbed. There are 3 restaurants, I tried the Chinese, which was really good. The Leela is not much more expensive than many other quality hotels in India, and would be very much more expensive if it was in Europe. For us it has been fun to have a whole suite for an affordable price in a real luxury hotel.
