Absolutely lovely garden. Pool great. Nice verandah outside rooms. Sweet staff. Good to have mosquito nets over bed. Bathrooms ok. But rooms very basic in standard. And: rooms not cleaned or tidied during stay. Breakfast a sad story fruit egg toast. Not possible to get all breakfast in less than an hour, some mornings more. Garden furniture very worn out,...

Leijay Resort is not really one. Other than a swimming pool, it is just a collection of rooms which share common sitting areas looking out on a nice garden. The location is pretty, with monkeys and birds everywhere as well as lots of flies and mosquitos. We are told a foreign owner from a South Asian country recently bought the... More

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
