The Leela Palace Chennai

The Leela Palace Chennai

Evoking the spirit of Chettinad Palaces and their architectural splendour, The Leela Palace Chennai embodies a tapestry of historical influences blended with all modern luxuries. Nestled in 4.8 acres against the backdrop of the Bay of Bengal, this resplendent sea-facing palace seamlessly blends the contemporary with the traditional.

Each turn reveals a visual feast: polished marble corridors, high, chandelier-lit ceilings, a remarkable collection of art and artefacts, and manicured gardens. Tuck into scrumptious global fare at our fine dining restaurants. As dusk falls, join us for the mesmerising ritual of lighting theepantham lamps to reverberating kombu blow-horns. Lose yourself in a soul-stirring Carnatic concert. Your suite, a haven of decadence, offers more than comfort - it is a window to Chennai's soul.
