    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!

    Very Good Facelities”
    The location is far far south in Goa. But they have a shuttle service to pickup/drop from airport. Very nice breakfast spread. Good rooms. Warmly welcoming staff. Only thing which pinches is the price of rooms which can be a bit lesser than what we pay. Rest all really good experience. Come here to relax enjoy

    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!!

    very nice hotel in a quiet area. the rooms are spacious and modern and provide all the amenities one expects from a five star hotel. as we booked an all-meal package i can only comment about the buffet which was, all in all, good with the main focus on indian food. the staff was very friendly but sometimes, especially at the breakfast-buffet, a bit inefficient. at the beach you can stroll for hours. there are not many or rather no other hotels directly at the beach and, therefore, there are not too many people about. the hotel seems to be very popular amongst russian families.

    Ruined Weekend at Leela Goa”
    We had stayed at Taj Holiday Village and had a fantastic time. I had stayed at Leela Bangalore on my business trip & based on some reviews decided to stay at Leela Goa. This place is very luxurious with gardens & lagoons, the rooms are clean and spacious however the service has a lot to be desired & very ordinary. After a long overnight journey, I reached the hotel only to wait forever to be checked-in. I was patient & went thru the hotel formalities. My wife joined me a day later, she went thru the same ordeal. We requested the staff to complete the check-in formalities a bit later since my wife was hungry. We decided to leave as we were left waiting & unattended for 20 mins. We had to carry our bags & walk to our room as the golf cart wasn't available. I was really hoping to have a good relaxing weekend in Goa but Leela’s customer service simply ruined our weekend. Leela’s lacks customer service and leadership. They were hardly apologetic & did not acknowledge any negative reviews.

    Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback. At our resort, we take guest feedback very seriously and ensure that we investigate our valued guest’s comments and utilize the learnings for improving internal processes. Having personally investigated your feedback (including reviewing CCTV footage), please allow me to clarify that you seem to have highly exaggerated the delay in time taken for completion of check-in formalities. We are also disappointed that your chose not to appreciate the graciousness of our Front Office Associate who worked hard ( along with Housekeeping ) to allocate you a room at 1110 hrs ( over a full house ) even though the standard check-in time is 1400 hrs. I can also confirm that the check-in formalities for your wife were completed in 6 minutes whereas the buggy did take a little over 5 minutes, again, since the hotel operations were busy that day.In your case, your check-in formalities ( since you visited us a day earlier ) were completed in under 4 minutes.

    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.

    It's a really nice place but I wouldnt go back. It surpasses expectations in a lot of things like the staff but...there's no Wi-Fi (you have to pay which is silly since low end places we stayed in India all had this for free and it was better connectivity) and on the beach we got hassled every single time which just annoyed us since we went to goa to get away from the hassle of Delhi and it's a private beach so it didn't make sense to us. Everything else was great apart from the selling. I wouldn't go back here if I went to goa again.

    Service is another level ”
    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

    Luxury hotel in a beautiful park”
    Location, beautiful park, comfortable rooms,
    Overall we were satisfied with the hotel but a few things I didn't like, I mention hereafter: 1/ Due to the nice lagoons I was literally eaten by mosquitoes 2/ In monsoon season I discovered that the beach is closed (swimming prohibited, and as a surf life saver in Australia I didn't see a dangerous sea ...), also meaning that not a single deckchair nor an umbrella on the beach. Also when I arrived on the beach I've been "assaulted" by women wanted to sell me things even if I told the security I didn't want to be disturbed. 3/ for our departure the luggages pick up was 15mn late and same for the pre booked taxi. Thus the available taxis booked from reception (no meter) are much more expensive. No possibility to get normal taxi which should be half the price. 4/ I felt very uncomfortable relaxing around the pool with armed security guards patrolling around the guests

    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!
