"What People say About .....
This is really a good place for a short stay both in terms of location and quality of service they offer. We stayed for 2 nights and the stay was pleasant true to international standards. Our room has a clean and nice ocean view and has a balcony were one can watch the movements in sea. Will be back for our next visit to India. Reviewed 5 March 2013
No words can aptly describe the location of this hotel. Its mesmerizing..We stayed at the club suite for 2 days and thoroughly enjoyed it. The views that the suite offers are amazing. We did enjoy the food(desserts esp) at the cafe and the terrace and at the end of two days, I found it difficult to leave :)Reviewed 28 February 2013
“Holiday break ending 22 February 2013”
We enjoyed a 10 day break at the hotel, staying in a garden room, ""across the road"". It was very clean and kept tidy by cleaning staff. There was always fresh fruit and water available. And the bed linen smelt fresh crisp and very clean. We found all of the staff to be friendly and helpful, nothing seemed to much trouble. Unless of course you did not treat them properly and a few people didn't... The food especially the breakfast was excellent and catered for everyone. The evening buffet was good but perhaps not the best, but room service was outstanding. We also ate in the tides restaurant which was good. The happy hour was very poplar and staff were delightful in that bar. The sky bar was lovely and staff good as well. As our room was some way from the lobby and main hotel we called for a buggy service which was always available. We did venture out to lighthouse bay and kovalam beach and found the food very good, however drinking from mugs was not really us!!! Over all we both enjoyed our first experience of India and would defiantly recommend the Leela to our friends. Reviewed 22 February 2013
KarmaKerala Review of The Leela Kovalam
There are not very many luxurious resorts in South India which have that certain panache. Leela Kovalam is one of them with large rooms, contemporary design and a wonderful position high above the ocean which offers just the most wonderful sunsets, hopefully while you clasp a sundowner. If you want a wonderful closure for your holiday in Kerala, then a couple of days here is pretty much perfect.
