About Leela Mumbai

When actively scouting for land in Mumbai to construct his first hotel, he and his wife stumbled upon a vast tract of 11 acres situated close to the international airport. There was no other commercial establishment around it, except for a taxi stand that catered to travellers arriving at the airport. His wife Leela’s deep instincts that travellers to the airport would need a place to stay, prompted him to take up the challenge of building a luxury hotel without conducting a market survey.Till date there is no other hotel in the precincts of Mumbai that is situated as expansively as The Leela Mumbai.

At 64 years of age, when most people decide to rest on their laurels, Capt. Nair worked tirelessly to commission his first hotel in a record time of less than three years. A far-sighted and an avid marketer, he knew that he needed the brand to be marketed overseas. He tied-up with the Penta group, a subsidiary of Lufthansa for a marketing franchise. The Leela Penta in 1986. When Kempinski bought over the Penta group, the marketing franchise continued and the hotel was renamed The Leela Kempinski. Since 2013, the hotel has been rechristened The Leela Mumbai. Within three years of opening, The Leela Mumbai won the National Tourism Award for being the highest grossing foreign exchange earner. The hotel has never looked back ever since.
