One of the travel highlights of 2014 is the surprise family vacation to The Leela, Kovalam. The experience surpassed all our expectations and even inspired a friend to plan along the same lines.

Now, the carpet is being laid out for 2015 with The Leela Luxury sale 2015

- The 5 city properties in Bangalore, Chennai, Gurgaon, Mumbai & Delhi are offering a 20% off on basic rooms (including breakfast) & 30% off on the higher end suites.

Details are available here. Bookings have to be made by 5th Jan 2015 using the promo code LEELA2015. The booking engine did not seem to work as expected when I tried.

Important to be aware that this offer comes with breakfast only. At the The Leela Kovalam & Goa, lunch & dinner buffets typically cost Rs 1300-1900 for adults and half of that for children. I am not aware of any worthy restaurants around them so you will depend on the restaurants inside the resorts. Alternatively, The Leela Moments (here & here) offer is all meals & airport transfer inclusive. If you are on the fence, our 2014 experience was booked under this at ~Rs 11k including taxes.

As always, don’t forget to call the hotel desk for more. You may discover something more or interesting as I have in the past.

For points aficionados, The Leela group is part of GHA, Global Hotel Alliance that can earn you loyalty points. The staff at Kovalam had no clue about this though!
