The Leela Goa
Set by the sands of Mobor beach in south Goa, this legendary resort sits in 75-acres of manicured gardens and natural lagoons. The focus here is on the natural beauty, the peaceful stretch of golden sand and the welcoming and incredibly hospitable service. A 12-hole golf course sits between the resort and the beach and there‘s a spa where you can treat yourself to a combination of Ayurvedic and eastern treatments. India is the home of yoga and there are few better places to practice this ancient art than in tranquil surroundings of the Leela Goa.
Days here begin with a buffet breakfast at The Restaurant, which is also open for lunch and dinner. There are two fine dining options including the signature restaurant Jamavar, where you can enjoy Indian dishes from both the south and the north of the country, and the Italian Riverside which as the name suggests, overlooks the River. During the dry season a highlight of your holiday is a night at the al fresco eatery Susegado where you can enjoy grilled meat and seafood amidst the palms on the beach.
Many of the hotel’s rooms and suites are located on the edge of the lagoon.These include the Lagoon Terrace Rooms, the Conservatory Rooms — which feature a seating area with daybed overlooking the water — and the the spacious Lagoon Suites. For views over the golf course and towards the sea, butler service and an indoor/outdoor bathroom upgrade to a Club Suite or treat yourself to a Club Pool Suite which features a plunge pool on the terrace.
