worth every penny!
Posted Dec 7, 2016 on Hotels
I hadn't done too much research before booking The Leela and had concerns with a couple of the recent reviews. Now having spent a week there, I'm so pleased I booked it. I'm not sure where the bad reviewers were staying, but it certainly wasn't here!
This is THE place to stay if you're looking to recharge your batteries. At the bottom of the sleepy south coast, it's a beautiful setting. All rooms have great view either across the lagoons (full of things to see) or of the golf course. 70 acres of land and great facilities. We spent most of our time at the beach. It's quite something. Lots of choice for food options both in the hotel and outside. For eating outside the resort, I'd recommend the Fishermans Warf. The food is OK, but the service and setting are well worth the short walk.
I found the staff and service to be exceptional. Not only remembering your room, but what you had to eat on previous nights. Going back to the lounge bar and being asked if we wanted our usual drinks, was a nice touch. The staff really care. Sure, not everyone says hello, but the people who do (and care about their work) more than make up for it. They are motivated and seem to enjoy what they do.
In summary, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Leela. It's not cheap, but when you see what you get and the attention to detail, I'm sure you'll agree it is value for money....and a beach you won't forget for a long long time.
