Sunset from the Leela


The ‘Leela Hotel’ is part of a beautiful clifftop beach resort in Kovalam which is a small coastal town in the southern Indian state of Kerala, south of Thiruvananthapuram. We stayed here on our year-long round the world trip. My sister came out to India for a week or so and we had a night here together.

Trip date


Where we stayed

The Leela
Beach Road, Kovalam, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala 695527, India

2 nights (13/04/11 – 15/04/11)

The night after my sister left we had an immense storm and the hotel got flooded. We had water coming into our room but we were given towels to stop the deluge. It didn’t detract from the wonderful time we had here. To be honest I think it added to the excitement. You never know what you are going to get in India.

What we did

We didn’t do a great deal in Kovalam. We just hung out with my sister. Went to the private beach a bit and generally made the most of our luxurious surroundings because the next few places we were staying were no way near as luxurious.


Honey; I shrunk the Jonny.

Stuffing one’s cakehole as usual.


Don’t laugh, that’s my best catalogue pose.


Pissing around in the pool. Not pissing in the pool.


Sunset in the infinity pool.

What we ate

Unsurprisingly we ate the gorgeous food in the restaurant as much as we could.
