The Leela hotel at Kovalam is a fantastic experience. The hotel is on the top a hill with one side looking on to the Arabian Sea. The lobby, restaurants and the bar are all very maintained and the staff is very helpful.
The rooms in the main complex are roomier than the beach facing ones. It is advisable to keep the AC on since it is very humid at times. The monsoon season is a good one to be there as the temperature cool down the views become tuning with verdant greenery everywhere. The sea is in spate but roaring sounding of it while you enjoy a cool drink from the balcony of your room makes it all the more enjoyable.More
