A fabulous stay again. I've stayed at the Leela Palace multiple times and experience consistently excellent service. Courteous and efficient staff handle your every need, with seamless check-in and check-out and attentive restaurant service. Superbly equipped and clean rooms and extensive menu choice from multiple restaurants. And a great pool area and gym for those relaxation opportunities.

Staying at this beautiful hotel and having a lovely time. staff at the lobby are the best. Spa is equally beautiful with smiling face all around. The only sad part is that you have to pay for wifi after paying a heavy room rate
