The Leela Palace Trail

The Leela Kovalam, A Raviz Hotel

This heritage hotel, India’s only clifftop 5-star luxury resort, was designed by architect Charles Correa. It stands on the rocky promontories of the seaside town of Kovalam. The exterior features pristine white walls and red-tiled roofs, with expansive sundecks offering panoramic views of the seascape. The 67-acre resort includes the historic Halcyon Castle, now called The Kovalam Palace, the erstwhile summer retreat of the Travancore royal family.

Soak in the salty sea breeze and the sounds of the restless waves lashing over the rocks below. Go on a beach ramble, stopping to shop for local delights: handlooms, spices, Kerala handicrafts… For adventurous souls, beach boating, snorkelling, and scuba diving are on offer. Visit Aaramam, our sprawling 5-acre organic vegetable garden. Relish mouthwatering seafood delicacies cooked with the freshest catch of the day. Afterwards, head to our luxury spa for Ayurvedic treatments. The Leela Kovalam, a Raviz Hotel, isn’t just a stay—it is a taste of life, the traditional way, in God’s own country.
