Leela Group has tied-up with Singapore-based Amman Resorts to build an up-market beach resort at Bekal in Kasargod district of Kerala, vice-chairman and managing director of the group, Vivek Nair, said on Friday.

It will have a different guest list like film stars and aristocrats," Nair said in his keynote address on Hospitality and Tourism at the CII National Service Sector Conclave in Bangalore.
