These same lands are of spiritual importance to Hindus as well, and a variety of sacred landmarks and customs are worth exploring.

We had a double room overlooking one of the lagoon’s -beautiful. Nothing is too much trouble at this 5 star hotel -all staff are there to treat you like family and make your stay, the best it can be. We went to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary - cake and champagne brought to our room. The facilities are excellent, we stayed two whole wonderful weeks and enjoyed - the pool, the sea, the food (breakfast is amazing)!, the spa facilities, where we were pampered to death. We toured -the spice plantation has to be seen, Hindu temples and river cruises. You can be as active or as adventurous as you want- The Leela is a perfect base. Loads of young families and couples of a variety of ages-areal family feel. I would love to go there again and the best part is -they love your feedback and seek it out, so they can just get better and better!

We Stayed at this property for 6 relaxing nights after a tour of Kerela and had a lovely time. The setting of the Hotel is idyllic and the grounds are simply beautiful. Massive credit to the garden maintenance team as the gardens and lagoons are awesome. After much debate as to whether we should book 'Club' rooms or not we decided to book 2 Deluxe Lagoon Suites. Can't compare them to the club rooms here but have stayed in the club rooms at the Leela Hotels,in both Delhi and Udiapur and for us the Lagoon Suite rooms were more than adequate- very well thought out and practical with everything the discerning traveller would need. Ate in all the restaurants with the exception of the Italian and overall the food quality was excellent, especially breakfast. We also,ate out a few times and we're happy with our choices. Beach shacks nearby not bad at all, although we did not find the Leela prices excessive (maybe with the exception of wine and champagne which are pricey in India compared to the UK.) Liked the service overall and a lot of the staff really went above and beyond. The lady who supervised the breakfast was absolutely lovely as well as the servers at breakfast and the staff at the beach restaurant, also the beach attendants, pool attendants, security guards and a lot of the garden maintenance team. Also loved the shops on site much better than those outside the Hotel. Got,so,e really nice craft pieces and jewlwry with good discounts. A couple of irritations that I need to raise though. When you walked through the grounds some staff members would go out of their way to greet you but some did not look the path you were on,which,I thought was disconcerting. I have a service background and would always expect ALL of my staff to acknowledge a guest regardless of the situation. This is something that the Leela staff in Udiapur have down to a tee but needs a refresh at the Leela,Goa in my opinion. After all it's a World leading Hotel and the service needs to be top notch in all areas to reflect this. Another thing we found kind of uncomfortable was that part of the beach is the private to the Hotel but further down towards the sea was the public area. The Hotel security guards would guard these markers as part of their duties, in full uniform, trousers, shirt and ties in the mid day sun for long periods of time with no water and only a small umbrella for protection. Whilst I think Leela treats its staff well this was an exception that should be addressed with immediate effect. It made us and other guests feel uncomfortable that this was routine. Like the lifeguards these guards should have some shelter, fans etc. Not a good way to treat anyone and deserves a review. These are only small niggles in what was a pretty perfect and memorable stay. I would recommend the Leela Goa to anyone. On this particular visit to India we stayed in 8 hotels and Leela was Head and shoulders above the rest. I was really looking forward to my stay with this brand again and it didn't disappoint. 5 star luxury at its best and deserves its place as one of Asia's top hotels.

A family celebration took 12 of us for 10 days in April 2018 to the Leela, in this tranquil part of Goa. A year in the planning, so we wanted things to be right for our 3 children, their partners and 4 grand children. The room allocation was just right, facing the lagoon and sunny. The junior suites are particularly suitable for families as they are generous in size and have a second bathroom with shower, very useful. Our room had a balcony overlooking the lagoon, great bird selection to watch in the morning, and somewhere to enjoy a cup of afternoon tea. Lets talk about the really important part, the staff. They are exceptional in their desire to make things right for their guests. Everyone greets you, from gardeners to waiters, so your day starts with a smile and a Namaste. Suman our breakfast waiter always had time for a quick chat about the wonderful sweets of Bengal, perhaps our next destination to sample the Rass Malai and Gulab Jamun. Sandhya in Front Office sorted out one or 2 rooming requests quickly and without fuss. The pool and beach attendants tried really hard to find you shade or a vacant bed, of which there was no shortage. Our grand children thought the pool was the best part, till they discovered the beach and gentle surf. Lovely little pools to explore with the tide out. For ice coffee by the pool talk to NityAnand, as his were the best. Our housekeeping staff were meticulous and we did not have a single additional request the entire stay, they even cleaned the room before we got back form breakfast. Plus they ensured we had plenty of ripe small bananas each day, once they found out we liked them. These are just a few of the people who deserve recognition, and our respect. There are bits that need a fix I think. The baby pool could have done with some shade , and the central planter obscures part of the pool from a parents view. The pool food menu is unimaginative. How about some hot samosas and pakoras selection. Or small bites for children available at short notice, not just chips. Cake with afternoon tea would have gone down well. India has so much street food to offer, perhaps let your guests sample some? Breakfast is excellent and the chefs try so hard to cater for every request considering the wide mix of guests. The buggy traffic on the pedestrian walk ways is high, and at times you feel the buggy has right of way. Perhaps the hotel needs to introduce an audible sound around the blind corners, or just ask able bodied guests to walk? At times we felt the hotel management generosity lacking, some resorts bring along a small sorbet by the pool, or fruit, or clean your sunglasses or have a local food tasting afternoon. Did not see any of this. They lack the creative charm of spoiling their guests with small unexpected gestures. The beach is clean and you can walk for hours on it. Big bonus is the warm sea. Hotel pool was also warm, unlike some which get little sun and are cool when you first enter. The pool was immaculate. If you want a very special holiday, give the Leela a try. We were sad to leave this oasis and it afforded us a holiday our entire family will cherish for a long time.

Stayed with husband and 3 children aged 16, 15 and 14. The hotel grounds, pool and beach just amazing. The staff were just outstanding and made this a holiday we won’t forget. Breakfast buffet was superb, a massive choice from masala dosa to Chinese to English to cereals fruit and youghurt but my favourite were the pastries which were irresistible. We didn’t eat in the hotel for lunch or dinner as a family of 5 and cheaper to eat in the beach shacks which were just outside the hotel and great value and good food. I preferred the days when there weren’t conferences but understand why the Leela want to fill rooms in low season. My daughter aged 15 had her first massage at the hotel and the staff were very caring and treated her so well. I had a massage at the same time and it was just bliss, great therapist,Zoe. Overall it was our little bit of paradise after a hectic week touring. Great customer service by the management team and staff - so rare and makes it such a magical place. Well done Leela, you exceeded all my expectations.
