Leijay Guesthouse is perfect for lazing around reading, surfing the internet, swimming, etc. the grounds are lovely, as is the pool. It is not in or near the Fort area of Galle, rather it's in a lush neighborhood of lovely houses where the noise is more likely to be birds or monkeys than traffic. The guesthouse has its own three-wheeler... More

Very quiet resort with à beautiful graden, 10 minuten by tuc tuc from Galle fortress. Very good service. The large, beautiful pool is very refreshing after a day in the fortress. Spatious rooms with a large terrace in front. Ideal for families with children (or everyone else).

Leijay resort is an amazing place. From the lush surrounds with a beautiful pool, to the unique and spacious accommodation. The people who staff Leijay are utterly charming, happy to assist in any way they can. A 10 minute tuk tuk ride to the fort caused no difficulties,as Dinesh would take us in when requested then return at an arranged... More

I stayed here with a friend for a month as part of our medical school elective and we are glad we chose to stay here. All the staff who work here are fantastic and go out of their way to help you. Transfer (in an air conditioned car .. heaven!) from Colombo airport was arranged by Dilini, the receptionist, which... More

My fiance and I spent 2 months at Leijay while we were working at Karapitya hospital. Our two months were fantastic, largely because we were staying at Leijay.. Each morning we woke up to a lovely breakfast on the veranda looking over beautiful gardens. In the afternoons we came home to a very tasty lunch, an afternoon swim and fun... More

Leijay Resort has very good value accomodations considering the quality of the rooms, the delicous food, and the wonderfull environment with the swimmingpool in the middle of a garden full of trees, flowers, singing birds even nesting under the umbrellas! Staff is very friendly, helpful. It is very easy to travel around with their tuk-tuk. I spent three very relaxing... More

We had a lovely week there in February with our son and daughter in law who live in Shanghai. Dinesh and his team looked after us so well. Nothing was too much trouble. The gardens were lovely and the team looked after them so well. It was a quiet haven on the edge of Galle Barry and Anniek Jameson

We stayed here for 2 weeks in Jan 2014. It was incredibly relaxing and the excellent staff looked after us with kindness and attention at all times. You actually stay in a large, lovingly cared for beautiful garden, with a surprising amount of wildlife. The resort is located a little way out of Galle but the 10 minute Tuk Tuk... More

We've started our stay in Sri Lanka already twice in Leijay Resort. It's such a perfect place to relax! The garden around the hotel is so beautiful and as Leijay is not situated next to the main road, you do not get any traffic noise, just the voices of nature...perfect! The pool is clean and really well kept, our children... More

Quiet, clean and serene with great service and friendly staff. High quality all around, rooms and garden top notch (especially compared to normal SL level). Only drawback is nothing within walking distance. 10 min charming tuktuk ride to Unawatuna beach.
