The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts announced the opening of its second hotel in Kerala, India with The Leela Ashtamudi, A Raviz Hotel. Fortifying its resort portfolio and opening its second hotel in Kerala, the resort perfectly complements The Leela Kovalam, A Raviz Hotel and adds to the companies twelve award-winning properties in major cities and leisure destinations across India.

Introducing a magical backwater and beach experience, the picturesque resort is a tiny hamlet perched on the banks of the shimmering Ashtamudi Lake. The resort is 90 mins from Trivandrum (Thiruvananthapuram) Airport and 10 mins from Kollam Railway Station and perfectly balances barefoot luxury with rustic charm.
