We visited the Leela Kovalam for my Babymoon and as soon we arrived were in awe by the vast expanse of the property (52 acres they said). • We had nothing planned as an itinerary as such and we did not feel like going out after we got there!

Definitely a nice resort. Rooms are fine and bathrooms are a bit dated. Mosquitos definitely get in the rooms so be prepared. Picturesque location and great pools. Definitely a nice spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Beach is not good for swimming but hotel is nice place to escape for a few days.
