Great hotel with excellent spa


January 2024

The 5-star hotel is set in large gardens above a cliff right by the sea. The view is stunning. Be sure to book The Club (the Club rooms)! The spa is excellent. It is approx. 800 m from the hotel. If you don't want to walk, you can take a golf cart. The massages are absolutely professional. There is yoga every morning at 8.00 am and meditation every evening. If you book the Ayurveda program, you get full board at the hotel. However, it was not particularly varied and sometimes took a lot of effort. After we intervened, we were given a salad and vegetables. In general, it is important to say what you would like differently. For example, we moved twice in the hotel before we had the room we wanted (frontal sea view and a balcony that wasn't tied up with cords against the birds). The staff are, without exception, extremely friendly and helpful and make everything possible. Even an extra portion of ice cream outside the diet plan ;-)

Absolute dream accommodation with outstanding service

We've stayed in some top hotels before - but the Leela Kovalam has set new standards in terms of service and friendliness. The team in "The Cafe" and "Spa" in particular were so incredibly friendly and attentive that it was very difficult for us to say goodbye.

Fantastic location, wonderful people

If I could, I would give 10 stars! The location and the entire resort are gorgeous. The staff from the maid to the security to the entire management is just adorable! I have never felt so well taken care of as in this resort! As a woman alone also no problem at all! The entire spa area as well as the treatments themselves, simply therapists, Shinu and Aswathi have been simply great! I have never had such a great skin picture and such a good success in losing weight, just unique. The prices are rather high level and correspond to our 5 star hotels. But since every wish is read from your eyes, you can invest a little more in yourself! The rooms are spacious with large balconies and large bathrooms! For us, the food was really very good but if you are very set on European cuisine, with barbecue or baked meat, then it's rather husband would suffer😂also dream vacation with 10 stars

Simply outstanding!

The recovery set in very quickly due to the really exceptionally good treatments and the private yoga lessons. Everyone was very accommodating and friendly and created a great feel-good atmosphere with their manner.

Very good
