    I stayed in Leela for a week . It was a great experience. Everything about Leela is awesome, its services, luxurious environment, locations rates etc. Whenever I will visit Goa again I will surely stay here.

  • Hotel Leela in the Monsoon Season


    Leela Goa - Its a seven star hotel and if you come here during the peak season (Oct - Mar) you would probably end up paying lots of money for stay and food; however in the non peak season the Leela group has special rack rates and so we opted for a 3N stay during the monsoons. We got a fabulous deal inclusive of buffet breakfast which worked out to about 4500 per person for 3N/4D.

    Food was a bit expensive , however there was a decent restaurant walking distance from the leela called 'fisherman;s wharf' which had reasonable rates for food and booze and it worked to our advantage. So we stayed at the leela and ate at this restaurant.

    We even managed to hire a two wheeler at Rs 350 per day (EXCLUSIVE OF PETROL) and used it to explore south goa.

    Must recommend it to one and all. check out leela goa if you can.


    Unique Quality: It was fun and Leela was a fabulous place to stay IN - the pool, the private beach, the dvd movies, and the lovely room facing the lagoon - and at such an affordable price.
    This property was worth every cent we spent there and fortunately we didnt have to spend too much since we visited it during the off season.

    Leela has it all


    This luxury hotel situated on the Mobar beach set amongst 75 acres of tropical gardens most of the rooms have lagoon views and there is 6 restaurants to choose from, There is a large pool area and a 9 hole golf course, so there is plenty to do whether you want to have fun or just relax, It is a 5 star hotel with prices to match

    The best hotel anywhere?


    I have stayed four times now at the Leela Palace, and will go back again. I have been lucky enough to travel widely, and have not stayed at any hotel better than this in the world (the Burj Al Arab in Dubai is grander, but several times the price). The location is excellent, with a pretty beach and rooms spread out across the extensive landscaped gardens and grounds. The Lagoon Suite (one up from the basic room) is very generous in size, with not one but two large marble bathrooms, as well as a lounge. The Jamavar Indian restaurant at the hotel is of a remarbkably high standard, better in my view than the famous Bhukara in Delhi. There is also a simple cafe and a surprisingly decent Italian restaurant if you want a change. Service is impeccable throughout all my visits. If you are looking for some winter sunshine and to relax in luxury, it would be hard to do much better than this. Best time of year to visit is November - January, when temperatures are not too high (around 30C most days).

Lovely hotel but no "wow" factor

by TripAdvisor Member 08kate02

We stayed here for the week before Easter. We were with our two teenage daughter's and had two lagoon rooms. They were excellent, very spacious, simply furnished, and the two bathrooms were a hit... no arguing about who's getting ready first etc. The housekeeping was to a very high standard, a lovely lady who kept the place immaculately. One small niggle, the toiletries were probably the saddest I've ever seen... a definite "thank God I brought our own" moment! The pool is in a very strange position, sort of cramped up in a corner by the breakfast restaurant. The pool area is probably half the size it needs to be when the hotel is full, which it was. So, if you wanted a lounger which wasn't on top of loads of others and did have a parasol then you needed to be down there at 7.30am!
No thank you! We tried to upgrade to club rooms but they were full. The beach was OK but the sea is always very rough, we never had one day with a green flag flying. The shack on the beach, Pearl's place, was excellent, fabulous food at silly prices. Local wine and beer very good too. Mike's place, a short taxi ride, very good. Betty's place, a short walk, was also very good. Had a great holiday but can't say I felt pampered or wow'd in any way. Agree with previous reviews... only at the club!

Goodbye Paradise

by TripAdvisor Member Helen Ruth

I am fortunate to be an `old Leela hand', having stayed there for the past four or five years; which makes its current state even more painful. First, let me say that the Leela physcially remains one of the most beautiful beach resorts not only in India, but in the world. Its layout and landscaping are breathtaking. But today it is tired...it lacks its past spirit; the staff is disenchanted; the food is mediocre (even in its vast, apparently sumptuous-looking, buffets). Nobody, from the manager down, seems to care. If celebrities continue to come, i.e. Bill Clinton, etc., it is because there simply is no other hotel of this category in Goa. Some years ago, they added a `super deluxe Club' within the resort; and for astronomical rates, you get a huge air-conditioned villa whose permanently closed windows face a greenway; a vast bed overlooking a huge plasma TV and amenities that they have notably taken away from the rest of the hotel. The main hotel's pool is gorgeous, with a lovely waterfall: but, as was evident from guests' vigorous complaints, there is a woeful...and potentially hazardous...lack of chlorine. by the afternoon, when most of the guests were there. When guests complained...and this was at a holiday time when the pool was full of children...management simply shrugged its shoulders and declared that `this is not a high priority'! It is a special pity because the Leela in its better days was virtually unmatched anywhere in India. I eagerly await its return to glory!

Leela Dissapoints

by TripAdvisor Member ITConsultant

I was looking forward to the Leela. I was dissapointed. The Hotel is tired and worn out. On arrival, the reception is impressive but the feeling soon fades away. We have two young children and had booked adjoining rooms. The management decided that our 8 and 12 year old daughters could be placed several buildings away. After much debate we settled for an alternative building for a few nights, and then one room upstairs, and another downstairs for the remainder. We were told the Leela did not have adjoining rooms (they do!). We were told that there was a 12 hole golf course complete with caddiesand buggies (its a pitch and put). We were told there was a private beach - it is for about 30 yards, but the beach is traded by hawkers who can be very persistent. Get the message - lots of false promises and accentuating the positive to the point of disbelief.

I was ill for about 3 days with food poisoning, and my wife for about 7 days. The riverside reasaurant was probably the culprit. The Indian resturant had a very limited menu but the quality was good. Drinks are 5 times the price of outside the hotel (thats what the * in 5* means - multiply!) The onsite cafe was good. The pool was relatively small. The Spa was quite good. Its a shame.

A butleron demand

by TripAdvisor Member travelbugzippie

We just got back from a weekend at the leela beach resort goa to catch the rains. We had reserved a club suite but because the existing guests exetnded their stay, we got upgraded to a club villa with private plunge pool at the same rate as the club suite - bliss! The club villa and the club area is simply fabulous - right from th check in - which we did in th comfort of the club lounge sipping our apple frappes - to the room - a very large spacious living area, and huge plasma tv, a beautiful minimilistic bedroom with another plasma tv, and a lovely huge closet and bathroom - the feeling of space doesnt leave you anywhere in the suite. Both the living and bedrooms have french windows which open out to a porch and facing th living porch lies the goegeous private plunge pool - pretty large from what i had expected. We thought the privacy in th pool could have been better tho. The entire suite is in italian marble and the decor adds to the feeling of luxury - well with such a great room plus the heavy rains we spent a good deal of time indoors. saw a couple of DVDs and had a nice collection of music to choose from too to play on our cd player. The property is gorgeous tho i did think the garish pink of the regular lagoon suites spoilt the effect of the lush greenery a bit (th club rooms are a nice subtle shade)
The hot stone massage at the spa is not to be missed. The rates of the food however are over the top but as we had brought our whiskey from th local shop we had our drinks in our room porch with jeeves at our service - a butler on demand is absolute bliss - he even made us our coffee and delivered it to th pool while we swam lazily about. hah! thats heaven..and hey there was free alcohol too - whiskey gin vodka (but th brands dint keep up with the room) and really really good coffee beans with a coffee maker..overall however th resort does look like it needs a spruce up and since the italian and open grill were shut for th rains we had our meals at the club lounge..starngely enough we did not visit(or miss) the main building. Overall great fun

Leela looks dejected

by TripAdvisor Member lifecompanions

The Leela gardens and beach are still as beautiful as ever. The staff pleasant and attentive. The food in the restaurants good. However since the advent of GHM as management the decor in public areas and bedrooms in the main hotel is drab and dull and maintenance ignored.
The Club may be new and glitzy but the hotel accommodation although "top dollar" prices is now old, leaking, and shabby. Water ingress in Lagoon Suite Rooms ($485 per night) leads to paint staining and damp smell. Roof tiles are perished and a quick splash of paint simply won't do.
The Spa building leaks and there is damp plaster and staining on walls and ceilings. The ladies' changing room toilets smell of urine.
The gym may sport 2 new treadmills but the air con is ineffective and the window frames show bubbling plaster and staining.
It is sad to see what was once an immaculate hotel when Four Seasons and Kempinski managed now so run down.
