Bad! Very disappointed. Garden rooms very old and dated. Service not good until you complain. Food was good at beach restaurant, but nowhere else. You must pay for wifi... strange experience. Not 5 star at all. The beach was not nice.

We have just completed a two night stay at this beautiful luxury hotel and enjoyed it very much.

They also have a private section of Kovalam Beach complete with comfy deck chairs and towels provided with access from hotel reception via golf cart....

Last leg of our trip to Kerala was at Leela Kovalam which was a grand finale. Amazing resort with breathtaking views and timely service despite being fully booked. Service experience at buffet breakfast could have been better but can be overlooked due to the number of people they had to serve in peak time. One strange policy was beyond my...

We were really looking forward to staying at the Leela Kovalam for New Years, after such a lovely trip to Goa in 2015. Suffice to say it wasn't as expected, although the hotel is beautiful and the surroundings great, the service was certainly not 5 star! After an 12 hour flight journey we got to the hotel only to find...

The beach adjacent to resort property is manned by resort staff during 7 am to 7 pm but this beach is not entirely a private beach.
