Sitting on a cliff, the Leela is a hotel that offers a panoramic look of the entire Kovalam shoreline and also the Arabian Sea. The main attractions of this resort are that it is surrounded by private beaches and has its very own luxury spa. The spa at the Leela is called the Divya spa, and it has an insane amount of options, ranging from exotic Thai treatments to the magical traditional Swedish massages. A holiday in Kerala cannot be justified if you do not visit the amazing spas here.

There is one kind of massage known as the ‘Chavutti Thirummu’. What happens in this one is that the therapist is suspended above your back with a rope and massages your entire body with just her feet!

It is as relaxing as relaxation can get, and the room is wonderfully fragrant and calming. The best thing about the spa here at the Leela is that it is completely natural.
