The Leela hotel room is where we started a 5 hour drive to The Trident hotel. the Leela is very nice and provides great service. They really care about us. The hotel rooms are GREAT! The beaches are very nice and the pool is VERY nice. The only downfalls are that there is a road that separates the rooms and the hotel. The other downfall is that there are A LOT of salespeople. Not a great hotel if you are gullible.
Otherwise, the hotel is great.

After a huge argument with the manager we made a hasty exit and headed along the cliff to Palm Tree Heritage, where for four days, we were treated like Queens. The first day Chloe, Ails and I spent most of our time indoors using the hotel's office computer and preparing for Laura's BIG 22nd, whilst Laura tried ...
... a western lunch of margarita pizza and fries. Soda was the drug of the day. We must have drained at least two litres of the comfort drink. We then had our first dip in the Indian Ocean....we are now true Indians. A salty experience much like the Pacific and Atlantic sea funnily enough. We ate fruit salad on the beach made by a local woman who made us two even though we asked for one.....then wanted us to buy the second. It finally feels like a ...
... bus just watching India and observing everything going on around you (and of course taking photos)!! I never felt nervous on my own here - the people were nothing but kind and friendly. The men on the train from the airport looked out for me and made sure I got off at the right stop, a man walked with me to help me find the post office and explain to the woman behind the desk what I required, a police woman on the train struck up conversation with me, the women ...
