Someone I met on my visit to The Leela Kovalam, A Raviz Hotel, a luxury beachfront destination nestled in the heart of Kovalam, Kerala told me that this was his favourite spot at the property, as he pointed to the bench facing the stunning ocean views. A few minutes on that bench with panoramic picturesque views all around and a serene beach a few steps away; I knew exactly what he meant. It’s this serendipitous spot that will surely help you make peace with your inner self, lure you to live in the moment and bring a new meaning to life, just like it did to me.
