Ganesh Garden managed by Baby. Bungalows and Restaurant, Medilla Beach, Tangalla, Sri Lanka.
Bungalows and Restaurant on the beach (very comfortable), in natural surroundings (Lagoon with mangroves, monkeys, birds, monitor lizards.) Sri Lankan cuisine (special b+b, sea food). Restaurant in natural style surrounded by palms. Baby likes playing Reggae music and on special occasions the evening can turn into an informal party - yet this is not a loud place and the tranquillity and "laid back ness" of the restaurant is not disturbed by this. Next door is the dive school "let's Dive".
Baby - the manager. He has many contacts and his help turned out to be good. He is more than willing to suggest things for you to do and will find people to help you do them - not just in the local area either. For example he can organise tours/trips around Sri Lanka with or without a guide. We took him up on one of the guest houses he recommend in Ella (Lizzie's), and this turned out to be a good choice. His brother is Mayor of a nearby town. Runs clean good bungalows and has an excellent cook for his restaurant on the beach. Had a good time here although I did not use the rooms because all were taken when I was there. That does not mean the place is crowded - far from it - beaches are empty and beautiful. Baby can organise airport transfer if you want to spend every last minute on the beach.
The Bungalows by the beach. I did not use these but I did go into one. They are spacious, very clean, good toilet/shower facility in each one and very pleasant. About 800 rupees for a room - cheap - that is about 8 pounds sterling.
Ganesh Garden Restaurant. On the beach. Excellent food, very relaxed atmosphere, inexpensive.
