The Leela Palace
Chennai

On the confluence of the Bay of Bengal and the Adyar river, The Leela Palace launched in January 2013 and is Chennai's first and only seafront hotel within the city limits. Drawn from the inspiration of Chettinad Dynasty, the architecture of the Palace Hotel exudes the regal and opulent style. From the moment you enter the hotel, you'll feel the warmth of a Leela welcome and be pampered right up until the moment you leave. The lobby area, bar and restaurant are all set in very large, lofty spaces, which have marble flooring and are kept blissfully cool. The hotel makes full use of the hypnotic beach panoramas, which you can gaze at from everywhere. The hotel also boasts the largest entry level rooms in Chennai and all of the rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. With an excellent restaurant, Spectra, serving cuisine from all around the world and large rooftop pool this is our absolute favourite hotel in Chennai and our top recommendation for any stay here.

Travelling is like flirting with life. It's like saying, 'I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
