    Awarded the World Travel Awards in Asia’s Leading Resort category, this Leela property offers a rare look at the real Goa. The quiet beach location, which is also next to a river, makes it an ideal spot for those looking for quiet Goa holiday.

Nearby, the bustling fishing village along the Sal River offers true insight into how the locals of this paradise live. Guests can enjoy an array of water sports, play some golf, or relax on the deserted beach and follow it up with a pampering spa treatment. Plenty of restaurants are available in the nearby village, and the fish shacks on the beach are enjoyable for lunch and can be romantic at sunset.

    Luxury at its best”

    beautiful property, child-friendly too, eco-friendly practices and a range of activities to keep one busy

    The Leela at Goa, has to be one of the best luxury property we've stayed at. Sprawled over 75 acres; there was never a dull moment for us, even though we went for a quiet, relaxing holiday to recharge our batteries from the tired, city life. The staff at Leela, as one would expect are polite and very attentive to our needs. The pool area was our main stay during our time there and the bar right next to the pool made for an a very relaxed swim. Our room overlooked the lagoon with its own balcony and we had some lovely quiet mornings looking out into the peace with a cup of tea each. When in need of just getting out of the room, we would just go out for a long walk in the property or around the spice garden they have on their property itself. All in all, we would surely go back and would love to see the property in its full glory during the winters, which is when it opens up its beach due to the start of the peak season. Though we would like to reiterate, we went there for a quiet relaxed break. If you like a busy nightlife and prefer a town bristling with activity, the north Goa would be your ideal choice.

    The Leela Goa was absolute luxury in every way.”

    The resort was gorgeous - from the interior decor, the pristinely-manicured grouds, to the location on a private beach. The staff was so friendly and accomodating, service was 2nd to NONE!

    I was so lucky to grab the Leela Goa (via Agoda) during the off-season at an incredibly affordable price, but I must admit that even though the experience is probably worth every penny of the rates it usually commands ($300-400/night during from Oct-Apr)...I probably wouldn't have been able to afford such luxury if not for the off-season. The airport shuttle was a 5-series BMW, there were staff attendants to serve your every whim...from assistance in the "locker room" after a workout in the gym, to a security guard to carry a flashlight 10 steps behind you if you wanted to walk on the beach after sunset. The only warning I would issue is that the cuisine is not very western-friendly. I ate an apple from my room on the first morning and spent the next 2 hours sick in the bathroom. The buffet is filled with Indian and Chinese options, which are either very spicy (as is consistent with the rest of India) and/or full of uncooked fruits and veggies, which are no-nos for Westerners. But that is literally the ONLY "complaint" I could muster, and its a mild complaint as part of the adventure of India is navigating a wild assortment of new foods! The resort is absolutely the definition of luxury and beauty, perfectly relaxing and comfortable. I even rented a moped and explored the surrounding villages, and felt very safe doing so. Thanks for such a wonderful stay!!

    Birds and gardens, sun and beach and variety of food

    We loved our 5 day stay at The Leela. The gardens and bird life are simply magical. We celebrated our 5 year wedding anniv. And felt very looked after. Lovely Lazey, pampering holiday . It was easy to arrange a 1 day tour of south Goa with the Hotel . Our room was great- often spent evenings on the balcony watching and listening to the birds while enjoying a wine. Between golf and spas and pool or beach swims we had a great time . I wouldn't recommend the Leela if you want to really experience India and the crazy exciting experience it offers- the The Leela offers an incredible luxury beach holiday with options to explore neighbouring villages .

    a perfect long week end in the Leela ”

    staff friendliness, quality of rooms (we had the laggon suite), gardens

    the Leela Goa is located in the South Goa, a bit far from the city and the Northern party beaches, but what we wanted was resting and for that is is perfect. The beach is very nice and well isolated as the Leela is the last hotel of this beach. Only small critics i would like to put : 1 - no bar service in the beach as the restaurant was still not open. I think that there could be a minimum water availability at the beach 2 - the quality of the coach is not at the hotel level, old and dirty.

    Spent 4 nights at Leela Goa Resort was very good and had all their facilities one wound expect from a five star resort. Staff was very courteous and helpful. Buffet breakfast was excellent. Buffet lunch & dinner was somewhat expensive. The hotel gave us courtesy BMW airports transfers which we though was very thoughtful of them. Overall we had a good time there and will like to come back to stay at the Leela Goa, if & when we return to Goa.

    Incredible staff, beautiful rooms, wonderful experience

    We stayed in the Leela for 4 nights in August - it was amazing! The rooms are superbly luxurious with luxury features throughout. The staff are incredibly helpful, friendly and knowledeable about any topic we required help with. We stayed during monsoon and the weather was great; just a few showers during the day which didn't affect our stay one bit. There are lots of restaurants in the area which are very reasonably priced for great food. Access to other parts of Goa can be easily accessed by taxi, local bus, or by hiring motorbikes in the shops near to the hotel. A local knowledge source is Bryson's Shop just 50m from the hotel who offers every day items, local information, and friendly advice. Overall our etay was incredible

    Perfection at highest rates!”

    If you ever stay at the LEELA, you will enjoy the perfection of hospitality. Location: Perfect, Beach: Stunning, General facilities: Perfect, Gardens: Outstanding (more a park), Rooms: Clean and spacy, Hotel staff: honestly friendly and helpful, Spa: good, Restaurant: Great qualities, Breakfast: Outstanding with many choices! We are living in Thailand and therefore have already been able to enjoy many high class resorts, but THE LEELA is among the best we have ever been. There is only one obstacle: The Prices! Even though you enjoy perfect services, everything is terribly overpriced. We are definitely willing to pay good prices for the good service, but any guest should be aware that in this hotel you will need a big wallet for everything. However, if you can afford it, there is no alternative, and you should stay in this gorgeous place. No compromise! Do it!

    Beautiful and relaxing experience. Leela is a very luxurious beach resort. Its white sand private beach was without a shadow of a doubt the best thing in the resort. The landscape around is gorgeous. The main swimming pool gets quite busy with a lot of families and children. The breakfast is very vey good, with a wide variety of international cuisines. It is indeed quite far from Noth Goa, but we did rent a car to go up North and it was well worthwhile if you are of a younger age. Overall this hotel was fantastic and will certainly re-visit again.

    Just what we needed”

    the room/bathroom, the private beach, the staff

    It was our 5th wedding anniversary, and it had been more than a year since we took a vacation--just the two of us. We were overworked, stressed and cranky when we arrived at Leela. The hotel is a good 1.5 hrs from the airport, so the trip in was for ever, but once we reached the hotel it was worth it. The check in was fast and personal, over complimentary coconut water. The rooms were spacious and pretty, I loved the bathroom-- it had a bathtub along with a shower area. Housekeeping was quick and efficient, the beds were done and the bathrooms cleaned at least twice a day which was great service I think. The beach area was private and clean. You can order in cocktails and finger food. I didn't really care much for the food in the hotel- they were average and a tad bit overpriced. Though the Riverside Restaurant was nice, better than the others in my opinion. Checkout was quick and no frills as well. It was an extremely relaxing 3 days for us. We stayed at the resort the entire time, lazed on the beach, ate and drank and slept.All in all a 5 star experience. I would like to congratulate the Leela team on a job well done!

    Excellent service

    very enjoyable stay. be aware that the conservatory premier rooms do not have a balcony, wheras standard rooms do, which we found rather strange. the hotel's main bar is not air conditioned, making it very hot and humid, particularly at this time of year (march/april). airport transfers, which take about one hour, are provided in a minibus. the all meal package provides (good) buffet dining for all three daily meals. if alternative restaurants are used, no credit is given. leela is a member of gha, a multiple hotel group loyalty scheme. membership of gha is free and provides free wifi. the majority of leela goa's customers when we were there were russian and indian. the hotel's staff, with very few exceptions, were exceptional. with an excellent customer focussed attitude.

    Fabulous for a relaxing, unwinding, totally indulgent break tucked away in your own paradise !”

    Everything about this holiday was as expected and more. Travelling from Middle East I am used to 5 star hotels and this did not fail to impress. It’s a gem, not cheap but then the attention to detail and the service reflects the price! Service, food, accommodation, time of visit, attention to detail was first class. Thank you Leila for recharging my worn batteries. Only think that had a slight ‘feel’ was sun bed ‘bagging’ I didn’t think discerning travellers did that. The pool would be almost impossible to get a bed at peak times. Beach is beautiful and very private. Airport transfer was superbly executed. I will most definitely return Leela - soon !

    The hotel itself has wonderful grounds and garden. The private beach isn't set up in low season. The service is what really makes this place. Each and every team member at the Leela goes above and beyond. Housekeeping add lovely touches - turning down your bed in the evening or just placing a bookmark in a book youvev left open! I would recommend going in season as the local area and beach were a bit scrappy and no beach shacks up until October. Thank you for a wonderful holiday to all of the team at The Leela
