“If there were more than 5 stars, this is would be it!”
Reviewed 24 July 2010

I stayed at the Leela Kempinski Hotel when my International Flight was cancelled and we were given rooms to stay the night. Though I wished I could have been on the flight back home, we were lucky to have stayed in the Leela Kempinski! The hotel offers a green and lush surrounding, including a waterfall and a staffed pool. People lounge on lawn chairs and sip cocktails as they relax by the pool, to the sound of the waterfall and the view of the trees and gardens. The rooms in Leela Kempinski are large, including a large bathroom with a tub and shower. The flowered slippers are a fun addition to the luxurious robe and plush carpet and bed.

However, the best thing about the Leela is the buffet. To get to the dining hall, you must walk through the imposing foyer which has benches for people waiting, and is ornate and well decorated. The buffets consist of all you can eat cuisine featuring American Continental, Indian, Chinese and Middle Eastern food. Any dietary restrictions can be met on demand. The spread is huge and all items are appetizing. If given notice, the chef will allow guests to come into his kitchen and watch the magic happen!

The Leela Spa offers a multitude of services, however, the minimum price of any treatment is around 4,000 Rs.

The beds, room service and waitstaff was also outstanding. I'd recommend this hotel for people looking for a luxury vacation rather than just a place to spend 1 night. It would take a few days just to fully explore the hotel!

Nice, comfortable hotel with courteous staff and good service. The lush green gardens, the fountains and waterfalls and the quiet ambience made our stay worthwhile. However, the food at the Indian restaurant 'Jamavar' was a bit of a let down in taste and price.

Missed the buffet though which heard is rated high. Next time, I guess

Leela hotel is worthy of its look but I find the location to be very uncomfortable. Reaching the hotel is sometimes a pain.

The Leela Hotel in Mumbai is an absolutely wonderful hotel experience, which offers peace and tranquillity in an otherwise hectic city. Turn off the busy Mumbai streets in to the gated driveway of the hotel and you are immediately in to another world. You are greeted by smiling, friendly staff who then extend the most perfect service throughout your stay, with both warmth and sincerity.
The hotels rooms are very well furnished and the beds and pillows ensure a very comfortable nights sleep. There are a number of restaurants in the hotel including an Italian, Chinese, Indian and International. The food in all is excellent, as is the breakfast choice.
The hotel has a wonderful swimming pool outside, which offers a perfect place to relax and re-charge the batteries over the weekend, before undertaking another hectic week of business meetings. It is located just 5 minutes drive from the International Airport and 15 minutes drive from the Domestic Airport, making it ideal for both the business and holiday traveller.
Notwithstanding all of the above, it is the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff which make the Leela such a perfect place to stay in Mumbai, as i have been doing for the last 12 years.

This was my third stay at Leela Mumbai in the last 2 years and I always feel pleased to get back there, since it's one of those hotels which makes you feel warm to return to.

You can look at my previous review for full review I wrote about Leela, but quickly to sum it up, the location is great, 5 mins away from the International terminal and 15 mins away from the domestic terminal.

Compared to the busy hectic Mumbai traffic, once you enter the Leela compound gardens, you feel like you are in a totally different area. Service is impeccable in every regard I would rate a 5 star hotel.

I have had several business meetings over dinner at Leela and I have tried all their restaurants and I would rate the food standard, variety and the service highly in all their restaurants. I especially enjoyed their Chinese restaurant and the Indian restaurant Jamahar.

Overall a great business hotel. But if I have to pick one thing that they can improve on, that will be their bar since that's one thing that never pull me in for a drink. It's a sleeky bar, but the atmosphere doesn't look that great to make me wanna go there for a drink.
