Being an internationally acclaimed beach resort catering to a variety of tourists, Kovalam is quite familiar with the terms luxury and indulgence. To give you a little taste of what’s to come, we have listed the very best, super exorbitant, sumptuous little slices of paradise, just for you.  

  • Leela Kovalam

    The top choice when it comes to luxury beach resorts; the most attractive feature about this resort is its location. Set on a cliff top looking over the pristine setting of the beach, this resort is sandwiched between two beaches. We cannot do justice to the views afforded here with just words. Apart from the location, you can expect to find every amenity that is available in any other 5 star resort. To name a few, they have an Ayurvedic wellness spa, salons, pool, gift shops, badminton court, beach volleyball, table tennis, jogging track, Yoga sessions, the choicest cuisines, excellent services...phew! The whole place is decorated keeping a traditional Indian theme in mind, which speaks of a graceful elegance and warm aesthetics. If you book a club room, you will even get a personal butler and a private lounge. The Kovalam Palace or the Halcyon Castle, built as a beach resort for the Travancore royalty in 1932, lies within the premises. It has a lot of interesting royal titbits displayed in each room, and is a magnificent example of terrific architectural splendour. In short, take our word when we say that a stay in this resort will be one of the best experiences of your life.
