The beach strip is lovely and not too crowded (although in high season). We stayed at the first row beach cabana - it is simple but the view from the extra bed on the balcony is seductive. You have plenty of restaurants close by if you are looking for variety. Their new year's eve party was a lot of fun!

We had a good time at Ganesh Garden. Its very relaxing and peaceful. Too bad we couldn't go into the water cause it was too dangerous. What I did not like is, that the staff really wants you to have lunch and dinner at this place. One day they were already asking us in the morning if we want to... More

Three days without hearing any traffic--just waves. If you want to get away, this is the place. Our driver's Prius bottomed out a few times getting into the place. But once we were there, who cared. We loved the restaurant, the staff, the beach and the rustic accommodations. Also, we loved the sea kayaks on the backwaters which was full... More

Ganesh Gardens is at the very bumpy end of the beach road in Tangalle. We'd been to Tangalle before so we knew that the beach is very steep and difficult to walk on and that the sea is very dangerous aprt from 1 or 2 safe areas. But the peace and tranquility this brings is beyond value. The crew at... More

We were fortunate enough to find accommodation at Ganesh Garden in peak season. Ganesh is situated a little away from the main areas of Tangalle, on Madilla Beach, which makes it peaceful and tranquil, absolutely fabulous for relaxing. The ambience is idyllic, white sands under shady trees, well-kept grounds, a very well-positioned restaurant, all directly on the beautiful beach ...... More

I wanted somewhere special for my husband's 40 th birthday. I had my heart set on a cabin on the beach and Ganesh Gardens seemed perfect. There were long delays between emails and replies and I finally decided not to book ahead and take my chance on a beach cabana being available, despite it being high season. We chose a... More

Probably like most people we booked our huts well ahead by sending e-mails. These were answered with massive delays what made the whole process somewhat tedious. On arrival I had a warm welcome. I had a mud cabana which I had really chosen because of limited availability. Half of the property is facing the beach and the other half a... More

After the craziness of Mirissa and Hikkaduwa, this shaded beach front paradise was the perfect place to spend our time. Our bedroom was clean and airy with a gorgeous balcony. It was the perfect place to unwind, we loved it. Although the water is too rough to swim, there were cute hammocks and sun loungers to relax in and a... More

On arrival this place looked like paradise. It is away from everything, the beach is lovely and it is very peaceful. The few people around the place were dozing in the sun. We had booked a wooden cabana on the beach, very basic but fine. No air con or hot water which isn't a problem. The beach facilities are good... More
