We booked a Club suite, which meant we had a luxury sedan (Audi A3) airport transfer included in our booking. This was an added bonus, as our flight arrived late and it was nice to see a welcoming face to get us to our accommodation safely. The hotel is located approximately a half hours drive from the airport. First impressions,...

Our stay at the Leela was really amazing. The hotel is beautiful but most of all, the staff are so friendly and welcoming and very professional. Two of them gave us exceptional services. Manu Pallichal at the front desk greeted us the first day and checked us in and gave us great service throughout our stay. Another one, Laksh Pathak,...

Arrived during the night and what a view on our first morning! Couple of minutes walk to a shared beach and that was the best way. Part reserved for Leela with sunbeds, facilities etc and part public beach with locals, activities etc that added so much to the atmosphere. Pool ok but area hemmed in with a limited number of...

We were only booked for 3 nights by our agent, but could have stayed longer. We love the resort and staff are excellent, accommodating to every need. However, we would rate it a high 4 star due to its lack of private beach, which is near the mosque and bus loads of locals enjoying the adjoining public beach/motor boats. The...

I was here for a conference and I think the experience would have been different for a holiday. Rooms were nice but internet intermittent - beach and pool area were very nice, though I did not use any of them. The club rooms seem to be very nice area but my room was not a club room and had a...

We received an upgrade to 'Club' which meant much more that a better room. As a result we had our own restaurant and pool, and this gave the advantage of a boutique hotel within a larger complex so that one could have the benefit of both types of experience. My only criticism would be that I found the menu selection...

This is a great hotel. We had a view of leela beach from our room and it was really fantastic waking up each day with such a spectacular and panoramic vista. The room itself was meticulously cleaned each day and was very comfortable. It is quiet at night and there was very little disturbance despite a large conference taking place....

We visited this wonderful resort last October to celebrate my wife's birthday. We stayed for 4 days and were on a full board plan. The resort has splendid ocean views and is one of the best beach properties in Kerala. The main restaurant overlooking the infinity pool and Arabian Sea beyond is a fabulous setting and quite a treat for...

They need to work on Menu and share with their guests what facilities they provide. As we came to know about couple of facilities which we could avail but due to unawareness we didn't. This property is still a good place to stay for it's location and ambience.
