This was the third time that we've stayed here. The hotel's private beach is great (go for a boat trip with Ali if you get the chance!). The rooms could do with being updated, bit disappointed that they look just the same as when we first stayed there 9 years ago! Having said that the view from the Beach View...

I spent 5 days here with my family and it's absolutely lovely. Hotel does need updating but that is expected with any hotel I guess. We had several problems from day one and staff just were not able to communicate with each other which was extremely frustrating. The shower in my parents room would not work after speaking to 2...

If you have been travelling in India and have previously stayed at Oberoi hotels , then be advised that the Leela although a 5 star is definitely not of the same standard. That said , the staff in the Club area are lovely. In particular Ambuj was extremely professional and went out of his way to make our stay a...

Being perched on a cliff ,the view is what this hotel is all about . Definitely the best place in Trivandrum to enjoy sunset sipping a cup of coffee . I can easily say that this is one of the best beach properties in Kerala .The overall service quality is probably one area the hotel could look at improving .

We booked a Club suite, which meant we had a luxury sedan (Audi A3) airport transfer included in our booking. This was an added bonus, as our flight arrived late and it was nice to see a welcoming face to get us to our accommodation safely. The hotel is located approximately a half hours drive from the airport. First impressions,...

Our stay at the Leela was really amazing. The hotel is beautiful but most of all, the staff are so friendly and welcoming and very professional. Two of them gave us exceptional services. Manu Pallichal at the front desk greeted us the first day and checked us in and gave us great service throughout our stay. Another one, Laksh Pathak,...

Arrived during the night and what a view on our first morning! Couple of minutes walk to a shared beach and that was the best way. Part reserved for Leela with sunbeds, facilities etc and part public beach with locals, activities etc that added so much to the atmosphere. Pool ok but area hemmed in with a limited number of...
