Ongoing Perfection!

Nottingham, United Kingdom

We have been visiting this exceptional hotel on a regular basis for the last 26 years. Each time we notice improvement. Probably one of the best beachside resorts in the world, the Leela Goa never ceases to impress. The staff are absolutely magnificent and always go out of their way to make their guests feel special - nothing is ever too much trouble. The Leela's location is unique with direct access to its private beach and the Arabian sea. Its grounds also side on to the River Sal which provides a stunning backdrop to the Leela's own and our favourite restaurant - the Riverside. Guests are spoilt for choice with a variety of restaurants providing a great choice of different cuisines. The hotel also boasts a twelve hole par three golf course which is always immaculately manicured. We can't wait for our next visit!

Beautiful and Restful

London, United Kingdom

We came here for a much needed holiday and are very glad we chose this property. From the efficient airport pick up to being greeted by the hostess, in our case Laxmi who took excellent care of us and was patient and kind in showing us around to the comfortable rooms-- we relaxed quickly into the green and peaceful environment of this property. The pool is beautiful and big, the ocean next to the hotel has clean waters you can swim in and a gorgeous beach you can walk and run on. An occasional vendor can sometimes stop you but nothing that disturbs the overall vibe. The buffet meals especially for a family is well worth the price. Such good food! The chefs we met Santosh and Sundar took special care of my middle daughter who has severe nut allergies. The staff in the restaurant from Seval, Khan, Suman (who even made me a really good cup of tea after watching me make my own) take attentive care of you. The gym is well stocked to get a good work out in. We had a good experience in the salon as well. I sent my oldest who has trouble with acne to get a facial and Champa took such good care of her. My daughter was sensitive to the products so Champa helped her sun burns cool with some gels and didn't charge us for her time or care. My main feedback would be about the use of small water bottles in the gym and elsewhere. The restaurant serves filtered water and we refilled our bottles as many times as we needed through our trip. I was remembering that at a Fairmont property in Berkeley they offer metal reusable bottles in the gym that you can refill. Such an excellent way to avoid waste. A thought would be to perhaps have signs up that offer filtered water so guests are available of the option and offer perhaps an incentive such as reusable water bottles for those who opt for the same? The most beautiful feature about this hotel is the property itself. Quiet, green, surrounded by birds and trees and lily ponds, all we needed to do was disconnect from our phones and the stresses of the world eased away. If you need to get away from the world or need a holiday or rest or just some quiet time, I would recommend this place again and again.
