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 is magnificent. Each little bungalow is spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated, spacious and has its own little patio looking out into the wonderfully colorful gardens. The centrepiece is the lovely pool, surrounded by flowing plants and visited by many colourful birds. Wifi, hot water, AC, fans, home cooking etc all excellent.
However, the icing on the cake is surely the staff. Cheerful, polite, informative, you name it. Sudath, Dinesh, Dillini, Jayantha and the others which I stupidly did not learn the names of... You made our stay so easy!
Make that tiny bit of effort to stay here, you won't regret it. (TIP: make sure you're armed with their phone number before you get in a tuk-tuk because the driver will need to ring for directions).
We love you,
Owain & Aylin
