No.of times visited : 2
When : Around September
Club rooms: They are on the cliff; good view of the sea and well maintained rooms.
The usual ones : Some of them on top of the hillock and few at sea level. Decently maintained rooms with good beds. The shower area is a tad bit small with a very small yet cozy bath tub.
Facilities/ Activities : The property has 2 pools; one the infinity pool on the top and the other below. Good pools and great view from the infinity pool. A decent gym with treadmills facing the sea. The spa is located 5 min from the main property though inside the boundary; definitely recommended. It has a semi open space for yoga where I personally love spending a lot of time; doing nothing. There is a tennis court (clay, if I remember well).
Food : This is one section where the property needs definite improvement. Not very happy with the taste/ choice. The experience though, sitting out in the pleasant sea breeze and having a good dinner/ drinks is worth it. There have been instances when we headed out to taste local cuisines in other restaurants.
When to visit : Onset of monsoons. Leela has a monsoon package which works out light on the pocket. But please do remember that when it rains in Kerala it RAINS. The beach is closed and one can not do much if the rain is very heavy. I enjoy rains and the season works for me.
Activities outside the property : Visit Padmanabhaswamy temple for sure. Take a stroll, walk around, enjoy the fresh air.
