Firstly, this is not a 5 star hotel. The lobby and only functioning pool off the lobby are nice. The restaurant The Terrace is also lovely. The manager of the restaurant is excellent and the staff is great too. That’s where it ends. The room- the room is okay. It is rundown and definitely not a 5 star room. The...

Let me start by saying , we are staying at their Delhi property . The rest is just positive criticism . Lovely rooms , view , service, good food but let down by a few individuals. It all began with me asking the serving staff for an empty table with a view of the sunset, told I can't have it...

Just got back from The Leela. Had a lovely relaxing time. The Hotel is immaculate, we had seaview room which was lovely, the staff can't do enough for you. The location is stunning. Just one or two things stopped me from giving 5* rating. The private beach although well kept where the sun loungers were was full of rubbish when...

I had booked this resort on my birthday and 10th anniversary. The location is best I find in India...hotel on cliff and views of sea and beach. The staff and chef is very cooperative. Jain food was easily made for us. They also upgraded our room for one night on our anniversary. Excellent property excellent hospitality.

Pros: 1) property- beautiful location. Photographers will love it 2) food- mostly good 3) architecture- very nice 4) service- attitudes are good 5) walkable to beach and speed boat rides Cons 1) delays in waiter attendance. Seems to be due to shortage of staff given the number of customers. Had this problem at Terrace restaurant.

Although the location is outstanding that is bang on the sea, also that the property is well done up but the rooms are not big enough for deluxe 5 Star property. Food also is not much to speak about. Service in large wedding group was poor. Still it is a memorable stay.
