    I would like to take my kids to the Leonia Resort in Hyderabad and would like to find out some information about the resort.

    The main query I have is to find out what the Leonia Resort Hyderabad entry fee is for adults and children. I am also interested in finding out if there is any discount for group bookings.

    I would also like to know that does the entry fee include meals as well?

    Hello, @Chhavi Naryan! Welcome to the forum.


    An Overview

    A world-class property just on the outskirts of Hyderabad, the Leonia Holistic Destination is one of the best resort getaways in the area. Comprising of various hotels, a water park, adventure facilities, convention centres and even theatres, this is an all-in-one property catering to the every need of the tourist. Spread over 200 acres of well-manicured lawns, the property is set upon a vast expanse of land. There are ample opportunities for recreation or isolation, your choice. Recipient of the 2012 Today's Traveller Award for the 'Best 5-Star Resort Hotel in Hyderabad,' the Leonia Holistic Destination is also recognised by different award-giving bodies for its contribution to the hospitality and tourism industry of the city. Families, friends, business travellers and couples alike venture into the resort because it has lots to offer for every type of guest out there.

    The Location

    The Leonia Holistic Destination is located in Shamirpet, specifically in Bommaraspet. It is located to the northeastern side of the outskirts of Hyderabad. It is about 31 kilometres away from the city centre of Hyderabad. It is usually approached using the Nehru Outer Ring Road. It is closer to Secunderabad, about 23 kilometres away from its city centre. Attractions like the Shamirpet Lake and Shamirpet Deer Park are under seven kilometres away from the resort. The nearest locality to the resort is Ponnal, a small village covered in greenery that actually compliments the entire resort premises. Due to its location though, access to restaurants, shopping areas or commercial areas are restricted.

    The Vibe

    Nestled in lush greenery, with various plants, flowers and trees, Leonia Holistic Destination takes the guest away from the concrete jungles of the city. You get closer to nature without having to leave the vicinity of the city. Most of the structures, the hotels and convention centres primarily, were designed aesthetically, using a contemporary style of architecture. Both the Celestial Suites and Lagoon Villas have their own separate swimming pool, different from the resort's water park. These hotels have low-rise buildings as compared to the business hotels, the Leo Biz Hotel and LICEC Hotel, which have higher structures. All in all, the Leonia Holistic Destination combines nature with modernity, giving guests their dose of relaxation, rejuvenation and comfort at the same time.

    The Leo Splash Water Park

    Leo Splash is the designated water park of the Leonia Holistic Destination. It is just one single swimming pool though huge in size. Lined with artificial coconut trees and sun lounges in its sides, the swimming pool exudes an almost beach-like vibe. There are fun slides, some are suitable for adults or teens only but others are suitable even for the little ones. The swimming pool also has areas like rain dance and canopied sprinklers. The water park is spread across a vast expanse so even if you are part of a large group, you can find some isolated areas that you can enjoy. However, there are only a few slides and there is no designated wave pool which most water parks have.

    A Variety of Outdoor & Indoor Games

    For those who are quite sporty, the resort also has facilities for outdoor games. There are open grounds for sports like badminton, cricket, tennis, basketball and football. In the swimming pool, there's a netted area for playing beach volleyball. Want to stay away from the heat of the sun? There are also facilities for indoor games such as carom, chess, table tennis, tambola and billiards. There are also facilities for video games and online games in the indoor games section. All of these games can be enjoyed for free, complimentary to the entry tickets, though you do need to pay for a refundable deposit fee for some of the indoor games.
