The Leela Goa

At The Leela Goa, life is all about the notion of susegado – that of the unhurried pursuit of happiness. As the gentle waves of the Arabian Sea lap the shore, the sunlight dapples across the Sal River and golfers tee off in the distance; that’s exactly what you’ll find here. A peaceful resort where the 206 rooms, suites and villas make their home among tranquil lagoons and tropical gardens and an Ayurvedic Spa fringes the sand, The Leela Goa invites you to relax and unwind.


After the foothills of Ladakh, the cities of Rajasthan, head down to the beachside bliss of Goa. A two-and-a-half hour flight from Delhi and just shy of an hour’s drive from the airport, you’ll have your toes in the sand in no time. Wreathed by the Sal River and the Arabian Sea, The Leela Goa is where beachside bliss meets colonial splendour with a stroll around UNESCO-listed Old Goa revealing a colourful blend of Indian and Portuguese heritage.

Your Room

Step from the gardens into one of the 208 contemporary rooms and find clean, modern lines complemented by marble accents and vibrant colours, designed to perfectly capture the essence of Goa. From your suite, gaze out over the lagoon, or from your villa, over the swirling blues of the Arabian Sea. No matter which room you opt for, all are incredibly spacious with daybeds and balconies alike designed to help you make the most of that susegado feeling.

Why we like it

If you don’t come to Goa for the beaches, come for the food. Famous for its fragrant fish curry and claypot cuisine, dining here is always a delight and no more so than with a stay at The Leela Goa. Taste the distinct flavours of North vs South with a meal at Jamavar or sample fresh seafood, grilled to perfection, at Susegado. Dust it all off with a nightcap at Yali Lounge and soak in one of the best views in town.
