We stayed at this hotel for short vacation in their Club room and must say the sea looks beautiful from the room balcony. Infiniti pool (accessible to only Club room occupants) was awesome. Food was delicious too with a good spread. Staff was extremely professional, polite & on time to serve you. Thanks Leela for making our stay memorable & romantic :)

Room Tip: Club rooms are awesome with great sea view

The architecture and landscape ...excellent
But disappointed by the rooms which looked tatty and needing renovation
On checking in the hotel attendant had to take us to several rooms before he could find one which was free of any faults. That really set me back as this was considered a 5 star propert. The room I booked was a beach superior and I am still wondering whether I got the right room. We had no privacy to sit on the balcony as there was a guard hanging around on the lawn and we were on the same levels of the walkway. Restaurants were just average but the staff were courteous in spite of them looking tatty in their worn out and stained uniforms. Many parts of the restaurant area on looking up shows that it needs a maintenance too. We were a bit disappointed but the views and the architecture was something that really alleviated our moods.

Room Tip: Please check and ensure you have room away from the common walkways to ensure privacy.

The Leela Kovalam Beach has one of the best views on how one can see never ending ocean and fall in love with nature and its making beyond human imagination. Hotel is well place on high altitude from where you can see the sea and sky meeting each other at very far, yet very near as there would be no other obstacles when you view. Early morning fishermen engaging for the catch of the day will also make you feel excited and be part of the process...right place just when you want to take a break from crowd and spend time admiring nature and its creation.

Room Tip: See facing rooms

Lovely views, lovely staff and the best beach in india undoubtedly! I have not seen such clear waters anywhere in India, the food was average but I attended a wedding so that may be the reason. Other than that, the pool at the leela is firmly etched in our memories for the dazzling views and amazing staff. Not too far from THV airport and a must stay in Kovalum, the spa is phenomenal.

Stayed: February 2015

Simply Awesome! The location is right up on the beach, you can view beach from your room balcony. The rooms are spacious but slightly dull. Maintenance of rooms could have been better. Acs stop when you open the doors of your rooms. Visually, the property is made beautifully, but room interiors need revamp.

Room Tip: Try and get a beach facing room.
