The Leela Kovalam Beach

Reviewed 18 April 2010

Our room was a beachfront deluxe made in kerala style with an open air bath and jacuzzi.. absolutely loved it! We woke up every day to the sight and sound of sea waves.. lovely, very relaxing!
The hotel offered everything we could need & want - great views, a private beach, a games room with table tennis, a nice gym with an instructor. We took an all-meals plan and the best part of the food was the kerala food counter that had the yummy fish and pachdis (yoghurt salad).
From the hotel it was quite convenient to take trips to the city, to Poovar and to the hill station Ponmudi.
Yes on the last day we did find a rat in the room which did freak us out a bit! the rat might have come in through the open air bath!

Last summer I visited this place and was amazed by the beauty.
Kerala is sheer beauty, the lakes, the paddy field, the fresh air and the green surroundings.
The hotel is in a good location and is good value for money.
If you have to splurge then Leela is nearby.
I was very happy with the room service and the clean food.

This resort is located at a small hill type elevated rock facing sea. Mostly all rooms are sea facing and in steps . One can even walk down to the beach from there. The rooms are beautiful with a small terrace where one can sit and enjoy sea view with drinks. I liked this hotel and it was a great romantic gateway.

Leela Kovalam- a great place to spend your leisure holiday.Leela properties are famous for its garden areas generally n so it true as well. Very nice restaurants serving delicious food. Have never eaten so much anywhere else. Lots of variety for every section including some 10 deserts and all fresh from the Oven. Tiramisu is a must eat.
Apart from the restaurant , Staff is very cooperative. Rooms are like villa. Have their own private beach and a pool known as Infinity pool, that merges into the sea........ WOW
They also provide airport transfers that too in separate coach for every couple / family. It was Nissan ride for us both ways.
For us if it was truly an amazing & refreshing holiday.

We read a lot of good reviews on the hotel and decided to stay. The location is very nice on a rock and near the beach and a beautiful swimming pool. We were received by the hotel hostess but with a forced upon smile. There are reviews mentioning 3 swimming pools but out the one with nicest view we were asked to leave as this was only for club members, which was not explained or clearly indicated. They will over charge you for everything you do or ask, so take care! taxi's from hotel costed 1050 Rupees whcih is normally only app. 300 Rupees (not rikshaw but taxi!) It is only a mere 15 minutes drive. We needed to leave for the airport at 6 am and we had to take our bagage from the room to our taxi ourselves although we hihglighted a few times that we had to leave at 6 am and for a luxurious hotel we have seen better service. It was too early for breakfast but they would organize it on the room and without informing they insisted on charging the full room service ratewithout give us an alternative in advance, it was jhust added and the manager was not available for comment! Wrong choice and heard better things on taj resort nearby!.
