The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts is owned and managed by Hotel Leelaventure Limited. The company was established in Mumbai, India in 1983 and was founded by Late Capt. C. P. Krishnan Nair, Chairman Emeritus and Founder Chairman, who envisioned the hotel group to be amongst the finest luxury hospitality brands in the world. Today, a little more than 30 years since Capt. Nair began work on putting India on the luxury map of the world, The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts has grown from one hotel, on the outskirts of Mumbai, to nine award-winning properties across the country, celebrating India’s diverse geography and architectural history. All the while, The Leela has remained true to its objective of redefining standards of luxury hospitality, the world over.

On February 17, 2013, the leadership of the group was handed over to the sons of Late Capt. C. P. Krishnan Nair — Mr. Vivek Nair, Chairman and Managing Director and Mr. Dinesh Nair, Co-Chairman and Managing Director, Hotel Leelaventure Limited.

On May 17, 2014, the Founder Chairman and Chairman Emeritus of The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts, passed away peacefully at the age of 92, with his family standing beside him.


The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts, from the very start, has been on a continuous journey to delight every guest offering memorable and magical stays that reflect the essence of India. The signature promise that binds the group’s underlying philosophy is ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’, or ‘Guest is God’, as laid down in the ancient Indian scriptures. And the commitment to stay true to this guiding principle has resulted in outstanding experiences for our guests. Over the years, The Leela has been recognized with numerous prestigious awards and accolades.

Currently, The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts owns and operates five properties and the others are managed.
