Excellent location and good facilities ”
Full range of facilities in large resort hotel outside Kovalam, garden rooms are fine (average for a 5* property) with easy transport around hotel grounds by buggy. Excellent food, nice pool and outstanding spa, although service in restaurant could be patcht

Mould on Windows. Bath not draining. A wedding held at hotel while we were staying. 95% of the hotel”
95% of the hotel was booked by Indian wedding party. Every 5 minutes a loud banging noise from drums would echo from the lobby without warning. Noise level exceeded that recommended causing anxiety to guests. Very poor. Would never stay again

Gorgeous location, Stunningly beautiful common areas , underwhelming rooms, typically great staff ”
The lobby, restaurant and main pool were stunningly beautiful. The rooms, while clean and comfortable, were underwhelming in comparison. The location on the ocean was gorgeous and the private beach clean. This was our most expensive five star hotel in India. For over $280 a night we were placed in a room at the furthest end of the resort with no view - not even the garden. As is typical in India, the staff were great.

Lovely stay ”
We had a garden room - I’ve seen lots of reviews complaining about them but I thought it was lovely. We just walked up to the building instead of getting a buggy - only takes 5 mins. Breakfast was excellent - so much choice. We had idli and sambar, appams or masala dosa and they were all good. It’s annoying you can’t get a glass of water without having to pay though. The bar was ok (serves alcohol - rare for Kerala!) but we found the Ibiza-bar-style music annoyingly loud. The happy hour isn’t offered unless you ask for it, so do that! Beds comfy, shower good, the private beach section is a little odd (next to public beach, and it feels a bit odd/uncomfortable when locals are shoo-ed away). These are just observations not complaints - it was all generally amazing and a real treat.

Great Place but...”
The Leela is a fantastic place to stay at. It has everything that you would want in a resort, lush open spaces, great views and scenery and excellent staff to attend to all your needs. The rooms were large and clean and had all the amenities that you could require. The only thing that could really be improved is the speed of the service. Food and drink took a really time to come and the food also came quite cold. There is nothing worse than tucking into a cold bowl of mushroom soup. Great place nonetheless and always looking forward to coming back.

A worthwhile trip to God's Country ”
Spent three nights at The Leea on Kovalam beach in Kerala , India . The hotel is located on the water with a fantastic view . The food and service is excellent . The staff goes to great lengths to meet all your needs . In spite of the location , transportation to the City and other points is easily available . I recommend the Ocean View rooms . The Garden View rooms are a hike from the main hotel where all the facilities are . This is a fantastic place to vacation or get together with family and friends .

Amazing ”
The finest property in the area ,would definitely want to go again and again,they went out of their way to provide us a room immediately on arrival say with 30-4 mnts at about 10:00 am though they were not obliged too but they did and I cannot thank them enough for this. but the only problem is not with them alone but entire state regarding the liquor hours . The are loosing out heavily on tourists. Otherwise a great place . Went there after 33 years and refreshed the memories. Thanks one and all for a splendid time and hope to make it sooner than before .

Garden rooms not up to 5 star standard ”
We stayed in several locations and 5 star hotels on our trip and this was the most expensive but unfortunately our least favourite. The service in the buffet restaurant was not very good and even when you did order something from them they would often forget or take a very long time. When you did ask they were quite blunt not the service you should receive and that we had in our previous hotels. The garden view rooms are at best low 5 star rooms with 3 star bathrooms.(we are told they will all be updated by 2017) the sea view and club rooms get a much higher standard but for the price we paid the rooms should have been better. The reception area looks lovely and staff here are welcoming but mosquitoes are everywhere and nothing is done to prevent them i.e. Spraying the garden areas (as seen in other resorts) In summary not worth the money stay at the avanta by taj, we visited for a day and service and standards in the hotel are much better although location is not as good.

Fantastic Overnight Stay ”
First of all, I have to commend Mr Sanjeev on his professionalism and fantastic customer service. We were given an upgrade to a Beach View Room and surprised with a cake for our wedding. The security staff were very helpful in regards to arranging time and location for our photographers to shoot our wedding photos. The staff were very friendly and courteous and the rooms were large, spacious and fashioned in a traditional Kerala style architecture. Room service was very efficient and food was quite exquisite. The rainfall shower head was not working and neither was the bathroom fan. There is a nice bar on the side of the hotel that overlooked the ocean and drinks are reasonably priced. We did not use the gym but it looked well equipped. Early checkout at 6.30am and Airport drop off was charged. We were given packed breakfasts which was a really nice gesture. It was a most pleasurable stay and we will definitely be coming back.
