Intrinsically, Chennai is known for the infectious exuberance of its people - predominantly Tamil-speaking as well as a large percentage of inhabitants from all over India and the world. Also known as the Detroit and auto hub of India, Chennai is a stunning blend of the young and old, with a vivacious pulse. It displays a mix of cultural heritage left behind by the Portuguese, Dutch, French, and the British, who landed on the shores of the land at various times in history.
Sitting in a quiet neighborhood near the central business district and looking out to the Bay of Bengal, The Leela Palace Chennai is a peaceful escape from the bustle of city life. The hotel offers guests the perfect ambience to spend their time in leisure, be it relaxing by the swimming pool surrounded by manicured gardens, a relaxing treatment at the spa, or indulging in our hotel art tour that showcases carefully selected works of art, luxurious textiles, and noble materials.
Make the best of the experiences here, at the hotel or beyond its walls - all of which, we assure you, will leave you recharged.
