The hotel is in a great spot with a pool that overlooks the sea and its a good temperature. We stayed in the old part and yes its a bit dated but the views and facilities are good. The breakfast is poor and slow. They seem to have only 1 coffee machine so always a wait. The positives do make...

I visited here for 3 nights on a family vacation. The location of the property is amazing, being right on the water. The property seems a bit old & the rooms were ok. I'd recommend the club room as it has many privileges. The food was excellent & the hospitality was simply amazing! I would visit here again...

Magnificent foyer, loved this hotel. Great breakfasts, we were upgraded to Presidential Suite - best room we've ever stayed in! Perfect sunsets - private beach OK but not fantastic. Good local restaurants at Lighthouse beach and Samudra beach.

It was a nice stay. Very friendly staff. Rooms were nice and clean. Good proffessional customer focussed staff. Nice spread of delicious food in the buffet at the main restaurant. Nice beach, although they said it was private, there were others who had access to the private beach.

We had 2 weeks holiday in Kovalam staying at the Leela for bed and breakfast only. Polite and friendly staff, excellent room, clean and well kept throughout. Breakfast included continental, fruits and Indian dishes which were regularly different. The only problem seemed a difficulty for them to serve tea and coffee. Waiters would take the order but then forget. In...

This lovely hotel has perhaps the best location in Kovalam. Set in its own extensive grounds the rooms are spacious and beautifully laid out. The sea view rooms, with stunning views over the Arabian sea, are a treat and just a short stroll away (down a slope) from the beach. Very large choice of foods for all palates at breakfast...
