Oh my god. I am sure the pictures alone have amazed you too, hold your breath, because the property is super amazing! Built on the nose of a hill, facing the Kovalam beach, with their own private beach - it cannot be put into words. Designed by the acclaimed architect Charles Correa, the wooden furniture, cozy rooms make staying here...

The Leela Kovalum is a gorgeous resort. Throughout all my travels in India, the Leela by far had the best service, food, and amenities. We stayed for 2 nights and took a day trip to Kanyakumari which is gorgeous. The drivers are polite, well mannered and will go out of their way to make it a pleasant experience. It is...

Even though there is no compromise for the beautiful scenic view and the location The Leela has, the dishes in their restaurant are yet to come up to the level of expectation.

My review is strictly on the service aspect of the hotel. In terms of property, no doubt it is breath-taking. But as they say in the hospitality business, customer service is everything.
