In my efforts to explore luxury destinations in India, I reached down-south: Kovalam Beach, Kerala! The best hotel here is the Leela with its perfect location at the edge of a cliff providing a breath-taking 360 degree view of the ocean. I was here with two of my girlfriends just for some much needed time off! The trip turned out to be everything we wanted and more…


I personally believe that luxury travel is best enjoyed in India because of the locations and the irreplaceable hospitality, and when your in the mood to take it easy, you need a hotel that you can spend a few days in without needing to go out and do touristy things! The Leela Kovalam had so much to do that we didn’t feel the need to leave at all… from its beautiful infinity pool to the private beach where we could just spend hours reading, lounging and eating delicious food!

The highlight of our meals was definitely breakfast because we could enjoy the traditional delicacies of South Indian food. Dosa with a view like this is definitely invaluable!

One of my favourite parts of the property was this one bench strategically located overlooking the ocean on all sides! Since I went during the Monsoon period, the view of the sea reflecting the turbulent skies was even more stunning…


Overall everything about this place was beautiful…don’t pick any particular season! Just go and experience it in all its natural beauty! Also, make sure you take a room in their ‘Club’ wing since that is the wing most near the ocean making you feel like your onboard a cruise somewhere far far away from land.
