“Leela Goa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

If you want a quiet break, lazing on a sandy and safe beach, in tropical surroundings you would enjoy the Leela Goa. The rooms are in villas set in lush grounds around lagoons and the beach is just down a path beyond the pool. The service is excellent and the food mostly good. We enjoyed getting away from the hurly burly for a few days - the beach felt private from staring and with very little hawking unlike other beaches we have experienced in Goa. The water was safe for swimming. We ate at the restaurants on site, some better than others. If we had stayed longer we would have gone out some evenings to Cavesollim but for three days it was great to just relax and stay at the complex.

Room Tip: Choose one with a balcony. Take mosquito repellant.

I just spent a couple of days at the Leela. Right from welcome to check out, the experience was fantastic. The check in process was smooth and swift. The rooms were great and facilities where 5 star. Food was delicious and along with a private beach - The privacy is unmatched.

If you are looking for privacy while still enjoying the spirit of Goa and willing to spend a few bucks, this is a fabulous place to be.

The Leela in Mobor/Cavelossim in South Goa is an excellent place to enjoy Goa and India. It is located on the most southern tip of a small peninsula formed by the river Sal on the eastern side and the Arabic Sea on the western side. It lies in a lush green park which in itself is like a botanical garden. All rooms are located in individual houses which have view to 3 lagoons with cristal clear water. The reception hall, the restaurant and the pool are "palace-like".The Hotel own beach is well maintained, so ist the golf-course. The service is outstanding. The food is excellent with lots of variety between Indian and International cuisine. If there is one place I will visit again, it is the Leela in Goa

The Leela is not a hotel....its an experience. We were there and we loved it!!! We got a free upgrade of our room. It was a bit of a walk from the main building but the surroundings are so beautifully landscaped that it was a pleasure to walk. We took the all meals included package (since its an isolated place and there are limited places to eat nearby) and loved the food @ The Restaurant. The staff were polite and helpful in the extremely. The gym was well equipped (one of the best I have ever seen in any hotel). The beach was also really clean and well maintained. I would defiantely go back and can't wait to try their other properties!!

We went to Goa for a team offsite. This luxury Hotel lives up to its reputation. It is spread over an area of about 75 acres of which 55 acres is beautiful and pristine greenery. The food is good and hospitality standards, excellent. The rooms are spacious, well furnished and well maintained. Attention to detail by the staff is evident at every step.
The beach is not as clean, but then that is something on which the Hotel has limited control, I guess.

Big rooms with thick greenery. Fortunate to select this hotel for my vacation. I was surprised to know from the hotel staff that this hotel chain is being run by a 90+ year old south indian army captain. he has best vision. great for foreigners staying in Goa. though the prices are higher this hotel will not disappoint you.

After a heavy week of sightseeing in India we flew to Goa to this comfortable luxury Hotel.
Arrivng in early November the "season" was just beginning. We had a lovely ground floor room with balcony overlooking a logoon ( No bug problems throughtout the trip!) and fairly close to the hotel. Always cleaned to perfection and with good turn down service in the evening.Most of the guests prefer the sandy whilte beach ( and why not?) but this time we preferred to stay round the pool which I found prefect, even for my daily lengths. It might not be a lap pool but its wide enough for "lappers". Lovely comfortable sun loungers , loads of natural shade or unbrellas. beatuiful spa with sauna and steam as well as a more than adequte gym, all well manned and constantly pristine.
I enjoyed my daily half hour on the free bikes.
I am fussy with my breakfast, but it would be hard to find fault. They even had the All bran wheat flakes, bananas and semi skimmmed milk. There was a big selection of breads (granary french etc) , a whole Indian section, fresh fruit section with various juices, smoothies, freshly cooked eggs, omlettes, pancakes.. A full range of coffees, my wife had her Green tea and i had my double expresso- and when it got cold, it was replaced. Yes It was the same every day but you could eat a different breakfast every day if you wanted to!
We did not eat dinner in the hotel. 5 star hotels are similar wherever you go. There were lots of local places and lthough I was careful not to eat salad out, I had no trouble with eating outside in the various restaurants on the beach and by or near the Hotel. My wife enjoyed a couple of massage treatments in the hotel which were costly but which she enjoyed.
The staff are friendly and willing to help. The grounds are gardens are lovely.
There's no much to do in this area but we really needed a few days to relax at the end of our holiday and this was the perfect place to do it. We had all the tv stations we needed ( man united of course). We didnt venture more than a mile from the hotel all week.
The sea was warm as a bath.
