“Let me try to simplify your hesitations and doubts: YOU MUST GO (I miss it already)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

The other reviews are quite detailed and I believe my title speaks for it self. Let me just add these two notes:
Go there if you are looking indeed for real peace and quiet. I loved it!
Food and beverages are relatively pricy so you might want to arrive with some supply from Tangala (which is a manageable walk).

Regardin the "Mirrisa issue": we are in Mirrisa right now and I think that if you are not into whale watching and/or travelling from east to west, stick to Marikoliya beach. Much, much better.
Enjoy!

Me and my girlfriend stayed in this beautiful beach paradise resort and it really was paradise. First class accommodation and the service was excellent too especially the host Baby and his front of house man Priyantha. They made our stay feel so relaxed. The food and drink is wonderful here too, especially the sea food. We had plans to travel the south coast but ended up staying here for a week.

This place is undoubtedly the most beautiful place I've been spent holidays at. The staff are enormously friendly, the food is excellent, the rooms are tucked into a lush palm tree garden, the atmosphere is totally relaxed. My words fall far short of describing the place adequately. Just come and check it out for yourself!

After 2 weeks backpacking in the country, this place was like heaven for us!
Hammocks on coconut trees, white sand...
We loved its calm, and the staff was very kind too.
Double beds in small bungalows are at different prices from 2.000 Rps to 40 USD. Free WI-FI included.
You can not swimm on the beach in front of the Ganesh Garden but you can walk about five minutes further south and swimm in front of the beach "restaurant" there, where it's protected by some rocks.
The little downside is that it is really isolated and not close to the city center, for which you can take a tuk tuk of the guesthouse (usual rates will be applied). The restaurant is rather pricy and far from excellent but ok.

The room and locale are faultless, but as it is on a remote beach outside of town, options for eating are limited to GG or other hotels. The beach, whilst clean, is very dangerous for swimming. Felt it was a little overpriced compared to other destinations in Sri Lanka and I missed not having local town, but of it is a well priced resort feel you are after, this is perfect.

Spent 5 nights here with our 2 boys (9 and 12) and had an amazing time. The cabanas are just set back from the beach, with some having sea views. The restaurant (on the beach) had delicious food and especially good breakfasts. There are lovely hammocks on the beach, surrounded by palm trees - a real Robinson Crusoe paradise. It was very quiet - no music blaring out,just the sound of the waves crashing.
Did 2 trips out: one to rock temples, giant buddha and blow hole, and one turtle watching ( which was the highlight of our trip as we were lucky enough to see turtles hatching!)
Very friendly staff.They even did a little surprise for our son's 9th birthday. A lovely, relaxing place to stay.
You cant swim here as there are rocks but can swim 100metres down the beach.

I can hereby fully confirm that all positive ratings on Tripadvisor, or in their paper guestbooks, Ganesh Garden has been rewarded with by fellow travellers are so true!

This place is to die for! Breathtaking!
If you have doubts choosing your accomandation in this area I recommend you choose this one. You will not regret it.

Tip for travellers in the low season, you can bargain to get a real good deal on the prizes. Currently whole alone in the resort, and a cabaña is more then affordable now! (near 50% off). But the service and friendliness and great food remain!

Try the fresh fish, or if you like spicy food, try the fresh squid with the unions, tomato, garlic and peppers salsa! It's awesome if you like it hot! But order an extra Lion beer to refresh/safe your tongue. ;-)

And don't be afraid to bargain a little on the day prizes of fresh sea catches, you are presented with. You will always remain to be treated with their smiles and friendliness. And it may safe you some Roepies

I recommend this place!

Great place. True Sri Lanka'n paradise!!
