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 moment we stepped out of the car and into the resort we were treated like royalty. Our room was very clean, comfortable and spacious with AC and a fan. The bathroom was more than adequate. Yvonne (the owner) was really friendly and her team of staff couldn't do enough to make our stay so memorable. Dinesh is always on hand to drive you pretty much where ever you want to go - Galle, Unawatuna beach, jungle beach and Marissa (to go whale watching) to name but a few locations. Don't bother thinking you can walk down to Galle - it might only take around 15 minutes in the Tuk Tuk but believe me, to try and remember which roads he uses is almost impossible!! Previous reviews don't seem to make it clear about the meal facilities at Leijay - in all honesty the menu for lunches and main meals is exceptional with a great variety to cater for all tastes - and its all home cooked, there's plenty of it and above all it was delicious. The grounds of Leijay are beautiful and the pool offers a pleasant dip when the going gets too hot! All in all we could fully recommend Leijay and we shall definitely be returning. A massive thanks to all at Leijay - keep up the great work!!
