The property is a 20-minute drive from Thiruvananthapuram Airport and half-an-hour from the railway station.

The 93-room Leela Ashtamudi, a Raviz Hotel features four dining destinations including a multi-cuisine restaurant Keraleeyam, Portico Café, catering comfort food, the floating restaurant Ranthal and the aqua-themed bar, Zirkon.

Other guest amenities include spa, a gymnasium, and an outdoor pool.

The hotel is located 71km from Trivandrum International Airport and 15 minutes from the Kollam beach.

The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts chief operating officer Anuraag Bhatnagar said, “We are delighted to reintroduce The Leela brand into Kerala as we welcome The Leela Kovalam, a Raviz Hotel back into our fold and introduce The Leela Ashtamudi, a Raviz Hotel, a hidden gem into our portfolio.
