Expectations exceeded

New Delhi, India

Having been to the Leela in Udaipur I had already experienced their special brand of hospitality that I labelled it “spontaneous hospitality”. I called it that because it felt genuine, authentic and from the heart. It encompassed spontaneous initiatives taken by the staff to make our holiday special without referring to “higher authorities”. It was moments of surprise, empathy and warmth that you get more often at the home of a favourite relative rather than at a hotel. And there was a complete absence of the typical “plastic hospitality” that seems to infect even the most premium hotels. The instances that made me feel that way are in my review for the Leela Udaipur. So when my birthday treat holiday (courtesy my Mom) was planned for The Leela Goa I wondered whether I’d experience the same kind of spontaneous hospitality that I had done in Udaipur. I was surprised to find that not only did they match it. In some thoughtful ways they exceeded my already high expectations. Gourang in The Restaurant (all day dining) ensured we were looked after well and ensured a superb Goan meal capped by the elusive Bebinka for desert. Whether it was breakfast, lunch or dinner - he managed the fine balance between being attentive without being intrusive. He was delightfully thoughtful when he’d bring us snacks or delicious soup to help us wait for a dish that would take time to prepare. Even though we hadn’t ordered it. Prasenjit was an able deputy who supported Gourang well showing that thoughtful “spontaneous hospitality” wasn’t just the preserve of more experienced senior staff. Sandhya the concierge patiently took us through an interesting itinerary and when we weren’t able to follow it because of injury, made it a point to ask if all was well - regularly. And Lakshmi, the guest relations officer was a sparkling delight - regaling us with lovely stories and presenting me with a delicious cake and wine on my birthday completely unexpectedly - and yes singing too. The very soul of “spontaneous hospitality”. I found that I repeated “perfect” so often that I started I making fun of myself. Yes. The Leela Goa not only replicated, but in some instances, exceeded my experience at the Leela, Udaipur. And as a perfect complement to the experience was the expansive, beautifully green, well laid out grounds, the large and well appointed rooms and the efficient karts that helped you get around the 200+ acres of the campus. The food was excellent - the Goan cuisine is a “must try”. The Riverside Italian restaurant is good too. But it’s the staff that made our stay - yup “perfect”!

Hidden Jewel

Mumbai, India

Absolutely loved my experience in the Leela . Its a hidden emerald attached to a spectacular white sandy beach. Acres of mature trees and foliage lined walking paths,herb gardens and beautiful water bodies and bridges lead to a happening poolside. An amazing riverside restaurant with finger licking good Italian food. i had to say the chef was just something else! Lobster bisque and steaks to die for. Spacious well designed rooms and above all fabulous child friendly service.An absolute must do.
