I arrived in Galle by train. The Tuk,Tuk driver did not know where the Leijay resort was. Gave him the phone number to get the direction. All the way to the Leijay the driver never stopped saying why are you going to the jungle when you can stay right on the beach. My reply was I made a booking by email and I want to see the place and then I will decide if I stay or not.
The resort is off the main road and right in the middle of a jungle. It has a super garden and swimming pool. The rooms are large and very comfy. But the Leijay is great because of its staff, so very helpful and always with a smile. Met Yvonne the lady of he house, a Swiss who tuned this little pice of land into a little paradise. she could not have done it without the great help of her staff. Being away from Galle is not a problem at all. There is scooter to rent and a Tuk Tuk is available too. Have been traveling quite a bit and it is one the of best place I stayed and very good value for money.
