Rooms & Suites: 182
With 182 rooms and suites dotted over many verdant acres, Kerala's largest beachside resort is cradled between two sweeping beaches.
Perched on a rock-face, this 5-star deluxe resort offers the most panoramic views of the famed Kovalam shoreline. Along with spoiling you with a host of impeccable dining and entertainment options, The Leela Kempinski Kovalam Beach, Kerala also has Divya, an authentic Auryeda Wellness Spa. You could also choose to unwind in our splendid infinity pools that merge into the westerly horizon. And when living in God's Own Country, can the living be anything less than divine? All of the beach-view guestrooms have their own private sundecks. And the Sea View wing, which houses The Club, is perfectly positioned on a seaside cliff. Sounds divine, doesn't it?
The Leela Kempinski Kovalam Beach, Kerala was built to be the ultimate luxury resort for people seeking refuge from big-city stress. This is the precise reason why its stunning location is in very close proximity to Nature's splendours. But if you do want to get out and see how the time honoured ways of Kerala living are still practised, Trivandrum, the capital of Kerala is a short and scenic 13 km drive away.

Transportation: Kerala is fairly easy for tourist travel. Private taxis are both readily available and easily arranged for.
Weather: The summer months from March to May can get quite hot, while the winter months of December and January are best for visits. Kerala is the most southerly of India's states. Bound by the Arabian Sea on one side and the Western Ghat mountain range on the other, Kerala is one of the wettest places in India. As much as 5000 mm of rain can fall in some parts, while average rainfall is around 3000 mm for the 4-5 wet months of the Southwest Monsoon. As a result of this phenomenon, Kerela is blessed with the lushest green landscape in India.
