The only modern hotel with a sea view in Chennai, the Leela Palace Chennai keeps with the tradition of other Leela Palaces throughout India in offering luxury and comfort to its guests.
Only 15 km from the Chennai International Airport and 10 minutes from the Chennai Central Railway Station, it is in a perfect position for business meetings and vacations alike.
The Leela Palace lives up to its name. With meticulously landscaped gardens and an actual ballroom, it is perfect for all sorts of events such as wedding receptions and business meetings.
Counting with over 300 rooms, there is a wide selection of possibilities for guests to stay in, including the 31 suites, which include extra luxury such as butler services and more.
Dining is also a well-known feature in this hotel, as it counts with three restaurants (including a Chinese and a traditional Indian one), the Library Bar, The Cake Shop, and the Lobby Lounge, all to make your stay as comfortable and rich as possible.
Guests may also partake in an excellent spa, visit the beauty salon, or enjoy the swimming pool – or even ask for a limousine pick-up if you are close to the hotel and want to arrive in style.
Occupying a total of 4.8 acres of land, The Leela Palace Chennai overlooks the Bay of Bengal, and is the only modern hotel in Chennai to do so. While it is a massive, 16-story hotel, guests will enjoy the attentiveness and responsiveness of the staff.
The variety of dining options and the comfortable deluxe rooms (as well as the suites) make the whole stay even more pleasant, as well as the cafés and, of course, the swimming pool and courtyards.
Every room comes with spa-style mood lighting, a deep-soaking tub and separated shower. The spa offers world-class treatments and the hotel also includes a fitness centre with a professional instructor.
Offering the essential in-room amenities, other facilities in the Leela include a bar, fitness centre, swimming pool and spa treatment rooms.
The Leela has two restaurants on-site; the Dining Room serving world cuisine, and Sheesh Mahal, offering fine dining overlooking the lake.
The Leela brand has an ecological consciousness that works to improve India through planting more trees, improving roads and attempts to conserve natural resources as much as possible. Alongside state-of-the-art waste management practices, The Leela uses biodegradable detergents in its properties, avoids plastic and exercises strict controls on the usage of electricity, water, heating and lighting, while maintaining its impeccable high standards.
