“Excellent place!!!”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

If your looking for a relaxing time on the beach with great accommodation and excellent food – ganesh garden is the place for you.
We travelled for 25 days in Sri Lanka together with our 2 and a half year old daughter.
After 5 days in Mirissa were recommended to go to Ganesh Garden in Marakolliya beach, Tangalle – and the place met our expectations big time. Actually we enjoyed Ganesh so much that we went there again for our last 4 days before we went back home.
The beach is beautiful with a long strip of golden sand. The cabanas are on the beach and you can hear the sounds of the waves when you go to sleep. It has all kinds of cabanas – made from wood or stone and even mud. Very clean with hot water in if it was a sunny day. Each cabana has a nice balcony.
The restaurant offers yummy food with good service. Don’t know what the chef puts in the fish but there were the best we had in Sri Lanka!
A unique thing in Ganesh Garden is that you have the beach on one side, and on the other side there is a lake were you can go fishing or take a canoe ride or just seat on the lake side and enjoy the silence. There are cabanas on the lake side as well for your choice.
Thank you so much for a wonderful place and your warm hospitality.
Miss you!!! And definitely will come back again!

Right on the beach! The beach is really good with big waves. We were almost alone on the big beach. Clean, nice rooms for a cheap price. Really good resturant and their chicken fried rice is amazing. Five stars!

if you are seeking the perfect island dream, stay at ganesh garden - cabanas are spacious and clean, fresh fruit juices served right to your hammock - what else to wish for?? food is more than delicious (great breakfast, fresh fish every day, and rice and curry is amazing!!). very reasonable prices!!
cabanas might be a bit pricey (around 5000 for the more beachfront ones without service charge), but considering the location its definitely worth it, and other ghs charge way more in this area!!
we also used their laundry service (fast and convenient, reasonable price).
the team is very kind and helpful, reliable and welcoming!!
good to know: swimming isnt really possible (currents) right in front of gg, you need to walk to the natural swimming pool located approx. 400m away. dipping is possible, though.
to sum up: stay at gg and do so as long as you can!!!

Hi all,

We stayed here at Ganesh Garden for 10 nights and we couldn´t have wished to be somewhere else. The location and the cabanas right at the beach are stunning. The atmosphere is the most relaxing I have ever felt. The service is outstanding. The service is not limitted to friendly supply with food and drinks, the staff supported us in any matter. May it be organizing tours, trips, giving us insider informationabout all kind of stuff or just having fun. The food is great and yes, there is a service charge but if you feel the serice you know why.
Special thanks again to the whole Ganesh Garden Team and "Baby the Boss" who was always ready for inviting us to his table and talking about all kind of stuff and making this stay an unforgettable experience. WE WILL DEFINATELY COME BACK!

Cheers!

Room Tip: Wooden Cabanas are right at the beach. In my opinion best choie you can make.

Property of Ganesch Garden is beautiful and well cared, far from the city center and access is difficult due to the poor road and therefore food prices in Ganesch Garden are quite high (10% service charge :/). The food is good and the seafood is fresh. Cabanas are beautiful, with basic bathroom but there wasn't hot water. Room prices starts from Rs 3500 (+10% service charge). Clean beach, clear water. Quiet, peaceful place. Tuk-tuk from Bus station cost 400 rs.

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.
