I went there for a family trip and I must say it was wonderful stay there. All of us had a great time and it indeed is a place to go with your family. The location of the Leela is simple perfect and beautiful. The beach is clean and worth of going. The security too is good there The service is fast and efficient, the staff is very friendly and jolly to talk to you. They are always happy to help at any point of time of the day. The housekeeping service is tremendously efficient the are very fast in cleaning the rooms and washrooms The rooms on the other hand are quiet spacious and give you a holiday as well as a homely feeling. And talking about the food it delicious in any cuisine. They provide you with every cuisine there and have the perfect chefs for it too. The options are many to choose from The golf car service is one thing I really found helpful for the old its the best and even for the kids to go around the resort I must say its an experience my family and I have lived there in the span of time we stayed there I would recommend it to anybody who went to Kovalam.
I visited in the month of December and climate was cool. As I just entered the hotel I was shocked to see the campus of hotel, because it was a very big hotel with huge campus. As we entered the hotel the staff of hotel welcomed us with their religious rituals, they offered us juice and other refreshing food. Then one of the most thing I liked was there were BAGI, I. E. Golf Cart, these Bagi drops us to the room from reception, due to huge campus, for cutting down the walking distance. Talking about the swimming pools, there were 3 pools and one was an infinity pool which I loved the most. There were many indoor games which I liked, so it was excellent for kids. I am sure the kids will love it a lot. Now talking about the private beach, so the beach was very clean and you will feel like you own the beach, and the beach is really romantic for couples. About food, the 4 time food with various DJ parties at night was so awesome. So according to me if you are planning a vacation or a holiday for 4-5 days you must at least once visit these hotel, THE LEELA
It was sea and sand worth a magic wand experience. We went into serenity of our romance leaving the ecstasy behind. We found the lost words of our life to enrich our existence of this life in the lap of vivid and divine mother nature with your fabulous service and ambience. We got elated with a warm smile and welcome by every person in staff and their courteous behaviour. We were upgraded to the club room with a sea view and those breakfasts in coffee shop and natural Kerala cuisine added cherry on the cake for lunch and dinner buffets. Its a beautiful property with great ambience and well trained staff. The impact of four days was so much that we again came for three days within a month to relive the same. Thanks so much Leela and it's staff for a wonderful moment of the lifetime.
You have to actually be there and see it to believe all the reviews and stories. Perfect for a destination wedding as I experienced first hand. Awesome views all around. The Spa is definitely worth the visit. The hotel property is huge but maintained as a palace. Leela lives up to its name.
We stayed in this property in September. I would like to say that Leela is worth the premium they charge and select it as one of the must stay hotels in Kerala. The food is awesome+expensive. So please check if you plan to take Breakfast, Lunch or/and Dinner then ask for all-inclusive package at hotel or while booking as this might save some of your hard earned money.
