Kovalam

Thiruvananthapuram (or Trivandrum) is the capital of the southern Indian state of Kerala. It's distinguished by its British colonial architecture and many art galleries. It’s also home to Puthenmalika Palace, adorned with carved horses and displaying collections related to the Travancore royal family, whose regional capital was here from the 18th-20th centuries. Along its coast are the popular beaches of Shankumugham and Kovalam.

Surely long before Sage Parasurama , according to local legend, threw his divine battle axe from Kanyakumari to Gokarnam to west Kerala, God's own land, from the Varuna the sea god; before the times of Mahabali the democratic and just ruler of this wonderful land who was sent down to the netherworld through deceit.

Destination Highlights

A short drive from Trivandrum (Thiruvananthapuram) International Airport unfolds one of the most inspiring of Kovalam hotels, The Leela Kovalam Beach Resort, Kerala. With 182 rooms and suites dotted over many verdant acres, Kerala’s largest beachside resort is cradled between two sweeping beaches. Perched on a rock-face, this 5 star deluxe resort offers the most panoramic views of the famed Kovalam shoreline. Along with spoiling you with a host of impeccable dining and entertainment options, The Leela Kovalam Beach, Kerala also has Divya, an authentic Ayurveda Wellness Spa. You could also choose to unwind in our splendid infinity pools that merge into the westerly horizon. And when living in God’s Own Country, can the living be anything less than divine in one of the best hotels in Kovalam? All our beach-view guestrooms have their own private sundecks. And the Sea View wing, which houses The Club, is perfectly positioned on a seaside cliff. According to legend, Kerala was raised from the sea by Parasurama, the famed Hindu warrior priest. St. Thomas first landed here, so did the Jews fleeing the destruction of the Temple of Solomon. Islam came to India in Kerala in the form of Arab traders during the Prophet’s life time. Phoenicians, Chinese, Romans, Arabs, the Portuguese, Dutch, French and British; all came either as traders or invaders and left their imprint on God’s Own Country. Take India’s oldest synagogue, mosque, and European church, mix a large population of Syrian Christians and Muslims, sprinkle strong matrilineal traditions and top off with India’s highest literacy rate; you get a state that is a beacon of harmonious prosperity.
