My wife and I had visited Sri Lanka some 30 odd years ago and at that time did the usual tour/beach holiday. This time we wanted something a bit different, more relaxing and maybe more authentic - Leijay Resort gave us exactly that - and more. They organised us a "pick-up" at Colombo airport which was great and from the...

Me and my girlfriend recently spent 2 nights at Leijay Resort. The resort is immaculate from its beautiful gardens to the room itself. The staff were very friendly and did anything for you. They have their own tuk tuk which we used everyday to get to Galle Fort. This takes 15mins and is reasonably priced, they even came to pick...

A retreat from the city chaos, this place provides authentic colonial bungalows in a tropical garden setting. Service is gentle and respectful. We liked it so much we came back and used it as our base. Yvonne and her team have married Sri Lankan hospitality with tranquility amidst a homely and exotic setting. Don't miss this !

We were tempted by the excellent reviews into trying Leijay Resort and we were not disappointed! Leijay is the most beautiful place with gorgeous gardens, lovely pool, fantastic rooms - very comfy bed, and the best service I have ever come across - it is thoughtful and attentive without being pushy and in your face. Dinesh deserves special mention and...

We had a wonderful stay here for to nights. It's a 400 rupee tuk tuk ride to galle fort, and has beautiful gardens. The common areas and amenities are excellent, and it's an oasis from the hustle and bustle outside. Rooms were clean, spacious and well-priced.

We originally intended to stay here for several nights at the end of our holiday but instead, because of the cost,chose to stay at the Dunes in Unawatuna. After three days we couldn't stand it any more so for our final night we reserved a room at Leijay. It far exceeded all our expectations. The room was extremely comfortable, and...

Having traveled to several places around the world, I can honestly say that Leijay is one of a kind. There is simply no other place like it. Not only is it filled with the essence and beauty of Sri Lanka's flora and fauna but it exudes a kind of warmth which one finds in their own home. This is because,...

Many tourists travelling through Galle will no doubt stay in some soulless over-priced hotel in Galle Fort - such a shame! Leijay resort is hidden away in the jungle some 10 mins from the fort (and it's very unlikely any Galle tuk-tuk driver will have heard of it) but do let that put you off for one moment! This place...
