The Club at The Leela û Kovalam

The Club a luxury hotel within a hotel – offers many exclusive delights to its guests, but perhaps none is more enjoyable than the awe-inspiring sea view. In fact, you’re so close to the Arabian Sea that the pounding of the waves on the rocks below acts as the perfect lullaby.

Why this is one of our favorite places to stay
  • The stunning location, at a rock, makes sure you have the most panoramic views of Kovalam. All the rooms come with a complimentary sea view!
  • The hotel has its own exclusive beach, just a stroll away from your room.
  • At the Club you have a lot of extra's like a 24 hours butler service to help you packing and a daily High Tea in the Lounge
  • The Diviya Spa, an Ayurvedic Spa, is one of the best in the area. Try the Shirodhara.
