Great place to stay with the most spectacular views. The food as usual is great with the Leela touch and has good conference facilities. The infinity pool is the icing on the cake. the place has a very calming effect on you as each room overlooks the cliff and the vast beach

We were here at the leela kovalam with the assistance of wedding planners... to put it straight my ratings are quite evident . It is summer out here nd humidity is 76. V had to struggle for cooler rooms as the ac temperatures were not quite apt. Complaints would meet with the excuse that it's on account of humidity, but...

We stayed here for 2 nights in March 2017 to celebrate our sons first birthday. Exceptional service standards, location, property and facilities. The view is to die for. The private beach well attended to. The pool sparkling clean. The buffet offers a lot of variety. I never heard the word "no" or "not possible" in my entire stay. They went...

Must go for beach view rooms and if you are under club category - its beautiful ,,,,,infinity pool is the place to be!!!! superb views of ocean and excellent service with brilliant food. With a shadow of doubt - the best place to stay in Kovalam.

We spent 5 nights at the hotel after a two week tour through India. We had a very spacious room, lovely view over the beach and a 10 minute walk to shops and restaurants. Lovely friendly staff, great breakfasts and just what was needed to relax and have some down time. Only downside is that if you don't like steps...

I will keep it short as previous reviewers have already covered pretty much what I wanted to say, so in a nutshell here are my main points. There are a lot of staff at this hotel but they seem to be lacking in leadership and organisation meaning mealtimes especially are a shambles. No information about the hotel could be found...

Stayed 10 nights this is down as a five star hotel, yes if you pay extra to stay in the club but why should you. The service was very poor at breakfast time and round the pool area. The rooms could do with a bit of a make over and a clean. Round the pool area and the pool was...

I have stayed in the hotel for 3nights and 4 days in March 2017. The hotel is situated at a very nice place and view is very good as well, however when it comes to service it is no good than that of a 3 start hotel. If you are going there having an experience of 5 start resort then...

Visually, this hotel was located in a great position with some super views. Check-in was good and welcoming and we were driven to our room. The rooms are a bit on the small side, with an 'interesting' bath / shower arrangement and also an external shower (which looked really grubby). Lighting could have been better. We were overlooking the beach,...
