Leijay resort is only about 10 minutes by tut tut from the centre of Galle, but when relaxing in the beautiful garden you could be a million miles away. My wife and I recently spent a week with Yvonne and her dedicated staff and we still don't exactly know where the property is, as the guys looked after our every need and ferried us about by their own very reasonably priced tut tut. This included dropping me off at the cricket every day, taking my wife to various locations during the day and picking us up at various locations and times each evening. Danish heads up the team of guys and deserves special praise, as he is polite and always willing to do anything he can to help. Nothing is too much trouble for him. That said, the rest of the staff are nearly as good!
The resort itself only has about five or six rooms, explaining why you get such excellent service and attention. There is a good sized swimming pool and a number of loungers to enjoy the sunshine. The garden is immaculately kept and feels like paradise.
Our room was large, very clean and well furnished.
Breakfast is served on the veranda and you can choose to eat it whenever you want. Leijay serves excellent food for lunch or dinner as well. We had four evening meals during our stay and every one was excellent ...... And not overpriced. Leijay isn't licensed, but you are welcome to bring your own beer, wines or spirits into the property. The lads will even take you by tut tut to the nearest wine shop to allow you to buy it.
Overall, Leijay is a fantastic place to stay and we only wish we could have stayed longer. Will definitely try to return in the future.
