The Leela Kovalam Beach
Ranked #4 of 52 Hotels in Kovalam
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 August 2012

The Leela in Kovalam is an amazing property! I would recommend reserving a club room to receive the maximum perks of this heavenly area. The food, service and spa were fabulous, especially the two hour Ayurvedic massages. The executive chef was kind enough to give me a private Kerala style cooking lesson and they take dietary restrictions into serious concern which made me extremely happy. I would suggest staying here for a minimum of five days just to receive the spa treatments. The only negative I endured here was the lack of personal hygiene of some of the staff; they needed antiperspirant.

Made a short trip to kovalam and Leela proved a good choice . The location is the best thing about the hotel , situated right along the beach some of the rooms ( as part of the Club ) provide you really good view of the ocean ( thats what geo tagging say Indian Ocean :) with adjoining pool and a restaurant .
The private beach is pretty small but well maintained .
Buffet spread is ok but quality could have been better .
Specially with kids , the property gives ample stuff to indulge in .

Room Tip: A beach facing room is worth it even though they charge a little extra for it ..

We took a all meal package considering the brand equity of the name. But i was truely mistaken, the vegetarian food was so less. The nan / roti served was more a chewing gum. I escalated the matter to F&B manager, who was reported of not being in hotel. On complaining to duty manager, we got a response that they are serving food.
So they set themselve lawfully right, but in hospitality they stink. I was really mislead as i tried leela banaglore for dining, which was excellent.
For the caddy to the beach, waiting time was like 20-25 minutes. The caddy people / guard use to behave as if they are doing great favor for taking us on caddy to beach...
You will not feel to be in any 5*. The duty manager seems to be some new lad or a college fresher, not knowing any etiquette of even reverting back to guest's problem.
Anyways, will think of not visiting any leela any future if they are not refunding my full money. They really ruined our mood and my honeymoon landed to be really bad....
Anyways sorry for late review, was bit occupied in things...

Room Tip: Dont go for Leela, I went to Taj in Kovalam for dinner, it was a an awesome experience. Go for it...

We spent a wonderful Christmas at the Leela. We stayed in a Club room and therefore used all Club facilities, something I would highly recommend. The Club was hugely luxurious and the service was wonderful. Spending Christmas morning staring out over the Indian Ocean eating that wonderful buffet breakfast was memorable. A fab hotel.

Room Tip: Stay in the Club

Went to this place for a offsite meeting and spent there a weekend. From Airport around 12 Kms away, welcome drink and way handled by the front desk people was excellent. Once check-In done, through buggy reached to room. very clean and kept everything in place. Swimming pool also very close by and well maintained.

Room Tip: "Rooms which are beach facing ( 100 to 115 ) are good one and within budget"
