Located in South Goa, The Leela is a pristine hotel located in 75 lush acres of gardens that snuggle up to a glorious golden beach. It’s easily Goa’s most luxurious hotel and is designed for those wanting some indulgence at the end of a trip through India. The property is large with 206 well-appointed rooms and suites; despite this it feels quiet and secluded, as the grounds are so vast and dotted with ponds and lagoons. Of the 206 rooms there are Lagoon Terrace Rooms, Conservatory Premiere Rooms, Lagoon Suites, Lagoon Deluxe Suites, Club Suites, Club Pool Suites, Royal Villas and a Presidential Villa to choose from. We find that most are happy with The Lagoon Terrace or Conservatory Premiere Rooms, as these are spacious and sophisticated. For those who appreciate exclusivity go for rooms in the club area as these have a separate pool and restaurant. The Leela offers numerous restaurants, a spa, a nine-hole golf course, water sports, dolphin watching and a large glassy pool. If your budget stretches to it then The Leela is by far the best option for a beach break in Goa.
