Recommended to us by our friend Angie and we were very glad that we followed her advice! Beautifully laid out resort with lots of shady spaces, loungers and hammocks situated at the far end of Tangalle right on the beach. The best place to stay in Tangalle in my opinion. We had a 3-person 1st floor cabana (number 10) for...

This was exactly what we had looked for. After by mistake having booked and stayed one night at a nearby luxury beach resort, we very lucky to find an available family room at Ganesh Garden. This accommodation matched our dreams perfectly. The room and bathroom was spacious and beautiful. there was a small veranda in front of the room with...

Perfect place to relax. Room 2 is next to the lobby with a view on all the garden, about 70 meters from the waves. Room 16 is literally on the beach. The dead leaves are swept every day off the sandy ground giving a luxurious, zen look to the garden. The mud cabanas are on the side of the lagoon,...

Bad service, scruffy rooms, totally overpriced for what you get. The reception was a desaster. Very unpolite and unfriendly guy. The beach looks like a postcard, but that's it: You can't swim there, too many rocks and dangerous streams. So on total. A great disappointment for us. We wasted 4 days of our honeymoon there. Didn't get the room we...

Stayed three nights. The big negative of this place, especially considering the prices, is the attitude of reception staff and the on-site manager. The one thing I did not feel at Ganesh Gardens was welcome. Everything was a problem too them, especially if it involved being helpful. One lad in the restaurant who worked day and night, inc serving morning...

I cannot judge accomodation itself as I was accommodated few hundred meters from there. But as a couple we rented there 2 single kayaks for a lagoon ride. There was a hole in my kayak so I sunk in the middle of the lagoon (which is full of reptiles etc.) In the last second at least I managed to save...

What an amazing 2 days! Secluded little cabanas, a walk from the busier side of Tangalle (around 10/15 minutes). Although the cabanas were a bit basic with no AC, they were so relaxing and peaceful. Lovely little hammocks to lie and read books in. The restaurant was delicious really enjoyed eating there.

We were very happy with this location. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant guy was very funny and the young guy at the reception really made everything possible what we requested and was really nice to chat in between. Food was great (one of the best curries we had in 3 weeks, really fresh seafood: i loved...

As this place was already a recommendation from friends I can fully recommend it to everybody else who is looking for a nice place at the beach. The staff is well trained and the management highly professional. Cabanas and food is what you are looking for when you like the backpacker way. Right at the beach, clean and fresh. Sri...

We were a bit apprehensive after reading some of the reviews below, but there was absolutely no need to be. Staff were helpful and attentive from arrival. We paid extra to have the cabana right on the sea front - magnificent! We wanted to stay in this unique accommodation for its beautiful setting, and the cabanas have everything you need...
