One of the best around there Aug 11, 2010
Loved my stay. Good food. Excellent interior settings. Very ethnic Indian style. Well maintained swimming pool. Though, I found it relatively small. Although, at night time the pool stands out with its lighting, giving a romantic and relaxing feel.

service needs to be improved and the staff need to be better trained, in order to get reviews for their work. I was left unattended and ignored at some point. It left me very annoyed.

An outstanding luxury hotel Sep 09, 2009
I had a privilege of staying in The Leela for 4 days. It is located right on the Kovalam Beach in Trivandrum.

It is a very large property. It takes a little while to reach the main building from the main entrance. The Hotel has its own private beach too!!

The hotel has two sections for accommodation. A regular one and The Club.

The Club has more modern looking rooms and is more expensive and more luxurious. The balcony oversees the sea and the poolside restaurant below. The balcony door has a strange locking mechanism which I was not aware of. I got myself locked in it. Fortunately, I could get in touch with the front desk. In no time a person came to unlock the door. Another feature of the room is the incessant sound of the waves of the Arabian Sea. This is an amazing experience.

The regular one has more traditional looking but larger rooms. The balcony too is larger. The balcony is so structured that one can easily step into the adjacent balcony. Here the balcony overlooks the Kovalam beach.

Though I did not have any meals here I enjoyed the complimentary breakfast :).
