We spent 1 night in this small resort. Very quiet outside the city center. nice swimming pool and very green garden. Enjoyed the discretion of the personnel and the simple food served at dinner. Rooms are spacious and every house has a private terrasse to enjoy the evening or the dinner.

It took our tuk-tuk driver around half an hour to find this place after arriving at the bus station in Galle. Would be best to make sure you know the location of it beforehand. We stayed here for 3 nights. Rooms were comfy, clean and a good size. Staff were lovely. It was a little further from Galle than the... More

Pleasant bungalow style, room is functional, bathroom fittings and towels have seen better days! The covered veranda in front of the room is very pleasant to sit and relax. This is also where you have your breakfast served or any other meals. Staff is pleasant and aims to please. Swimming pool is a good size. Good choice in its price... More

This resort is a bit difficult to find, in a residential area, a few kms away from Galle Center. But once you get, the place is close idyllic. A magnific garden with tropical trees, a nice swimming pool in the middle, 2 large buildings with each a few rooms, plus a common area (armchairs, books) and a veranda in front... More

Very beautiful resort. Rooms and bed/mattress/pillows/towels are very basic. You feel more like Sri Lankan residence rather than a resort. The staff and food is amazing. It is cutt off from the city but they have their own tuk-tuk which is very conveniant. Again, the young boys working there are amazing - very helpful and their service is *****

Loved staying in this resort. It is cosy and tucked away, almost in the middle of nowhere. However, it is a beautiful quaint place - with a swimming pool, lush greenery and airy, shaded verandahs to relax in. Great place if you want some quiet relaxation time, in the midst of nature. The service is outstanding; Dilini, Dinesh and Sudhath... More

After living at 2 other luxury resort for 2 weeks we found this place for 1,5 days. We should have stayed here all the time. Although not next to the ocean, the pool and the very nice and cosy garden feels like paradise. On top of this there are the extremely nice staff (special thanks to Dinesh and Sudath and... More

Loved this place: airy, cool shared verandahs to hang out in around a lovely garden and nice swimming pool. It's 400 rupees (10 mins) from Galle fory, but hidden from the heat of the town in a little secret idyll. It's quiet but friendly, clean, the food is nice enough. It's the garden, pool and staff that make this place... More

You can't help but fall in love with the place. Though it's off the beaten track, the location is only few minutes from the beach and town.ideal for a family retreat. Good service. The bungalow we stayed was grand. I liked the veranda, with its view of the beautiful garden. Good size pool, well maintained. Worth the price.

We had a lovely, lovely stay at Leijay Resort, our only problem was the location. We knew it was a little bit away from the main area of Galle and thought it would be fine. Unfortunately, for our style of travel, it really wasn't what we were after. We like to be able to come and go and wander about,... More
