The ultimate in luxury with panoramic views of the coastline

Cradled in a rock face between two spectacular beaches, the Leela Kovalam offers panoramic views of the famous Kovalam coastline providing beautiful setting for a tropical holiday experience. Devote days to swinging in a hammock surrounded by swaying palms or feel the ocean spray as you relax on the resort's exclusive beach. By night feast on Indian cuisine in The Terrace and watch the still waters of the Arabian Sea, or sip thirst quenching cocktails in the elegant bar. For an active stay tennis, badminton, table tennis and even archery can be enjoyed whilst down on the sands beach volleyball and yoga are available. After why not relax with a pampering treatment at the spa and soothe those every day tensions away.

Offering spectacular views, lush surrounds and a range of facilities, this resort is ideal for those wanting a relaxing break in the beautiful land of Kovalam. Wi-Fi is available for a fee.

We checked in to Leela, on start of summer in march for our two days stay, it was amazing and great refreshing stay, with coconut water welcome, warm and good hospitality of Leela kovalam, leaves with nice experience, to make you visit again. In our two days stay got delighted with beach front location, along with Tides Asian dinner, Thanks to Abhishek for his freindly welcome and taking care of small things. Overall we liked stay and hospitality of The Terrace, and Tides at Kovalam.

The LEELA EXPERIENCE

Chennai (Madras), India

The entry in to the The Leela Raviz Kovalam was amazing, we were welcomed by refreshing tender coconut and the check in was smooth and quick and we got one of the best rooms The Club rooms overlooking the seashore with a pleasant atmosphere and cozy washroom. The rooms are fitted with luxury amenities and enjoy fine facilities like an LCD television and wifi with hi-speed connectivity. The club rooms offer valet services and a club with a fine selection of spirits and snacks and a private infinity pool overlooking the sea. The only problem with the rooms facing the sea is when you check in during the noon the rooms take a min of 3-4 hrs to cool down with the AC cause of the scorching heat, my advise is call up the front desk and inform them to have the air-condition turned on before you check in if u don't want to sweat out after a long journey to the property. The dining experience was exquisite and the spirits were of fine collection. The overall stay was amazing and I would definitely head back. and yes the whole experience was just more mesmerizing and wonderful with a great host Mr.Prakash .
