    "What People say About .....

    “Good resort”

    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


    “Wonderful property”

    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.

    • How Karma Kerala Hotels Rates Work

      The price of hotel rooms changes from day to day and season to season so we check for each customer to see what the best rate will be depending on their requirement, length of stay and so on. If you want a wonderful stay, why not find our what we can do for you.
    • What does Cheapest Mean

      People assume that the cheapest rates apply to all rooms so they book the cheapest! But, they are missing a trick on this: hotels have great rooms and rooms on the wrong side of the tracks and so they offer out the low quality rooms to online portals who don't care about quality, just the price of the room. We, on the other hand, tend to focus on quality so we ask for specific rooms that may be more expensive but damn, they are much better too!
    • Never Knowingly Beaten on Price

      We know people are nervous and ask themselves: can this be true? So we make an offer to you: if you can find the room cheaper, we will match your quote. That means you have nothing to worry about and you get the best local advice.
