The Leela is a member of the Kempinski group and as such share the same high levels of amenities and comfort. It is a tranquil 5 star oasis located near the international airport. On arrival we were picked up by an executive hotel transfer, a new BMW 5 series and immaculately attired chauffeur. We were greeted and helped into the car and presented with bottled water and international newspapers. The trip to the hotel was an eye-opener. If you've never travelled to India before, be prepared for the culture shock. While we travelled in cacooned air-conditioned luxury, the streets outside were chaos personified with people, cars, animals, bicycles all moving as if they were a school of noisy fish. We arrived at the entrance of the hotel which sets the stage of what's to come, pure indulgance, you feel like royalty as you are welcomed by the doorman and have your luggage taken to your room. Check in was fast and eficient. The hotel seems to be recently upgraded as the carpets and furnishing look and smell new. The room was a delight with quality linen and toiletries. A beautiful view over he pool and gardens. If you didn't know any better, you'd never guess you were in Mumbai. Breakfast was of a high international standard but dining space seems limited. We had to wait for a table for 2 of the 3 days we were there. Dinner was also good but space again an issue, we were moved to an ovrflow area that was not as appealing as the decor in the main restaurant. Pricing too is excessive with mains but a single drink each for two came to around 90 US Dollars.
