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

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
