This is brand new hotel on sea Front. But you can't access sea but most peaceful and scenic. Pool is huge and goes very well with hotel decor. It's out of city and can be even considered as resort. Will be back soon.

I stayed at Leela for 24 nights and it was a great hotel. The room was large, luxurious and clean. The rest of the hotel was also luxurious and clean with a service minded staff. The food was great and especially the buffet on Wednesday and Friday. The only negative I could say is that the food is rather expensive... More

You can't ask for more. It's a Palace and you are treated like God. Period. I will not stay anywhere in India even if it's free. Because people here make you emotionally attached to this hotel. First place in India in two weeks where they dnt talk abt money but your comfort. Early check-in no problem late check out no... More
