We visit and tour India every year from the UK, flying into Chennai International Airport (of which the Indians should be seriously ashamed - a disgusting excuse for an "International" destination). We have habitually stayed at the Taj Connemara due to an historic family connection, but this year the hotel was closed for refurbishment. We therefore chose the Leela Palace...

So many positives but also a few things which aggravated. Lovely rooms, shiny and modern if you like that type of thing. Excellent cuisine in the specialist Indian restaurant.

This is a great new addition to the Leela Group. The hotel is far from the airport but close to the beach which makes it a great place to unwind in a busy city. The hotel is built like a palace and offers great value for money. A must visit when you are in Chennai. Food is to die for!!...

We stayed at The Leela Chennai between 16-25 February 2017. We have three active kids, aged 4 (girl), 7 (boy), 9 (boy) so we were we mindful that this was not going to be a restful stay. It was the children's first trip to Chennai and I can safely say it will not be their last, thanks to The Leela...
