Gartons’ Cape is located right by the Indian Ocean with a soothing view of the ocean and the Midigama beach. It’s a less crowded, calm and a clean beach area and there’s a small island close by which you can take a boat ride (not managed by hotel) to visit the island.

Hotel staff is very good and responsive. Food was served as buffet for dinner and breakfast and was à la carte for the lunch during our stay. They have an extensive menu with Western and Sri Lankan options which you can choose from.

Rooms and bath rooms are well maintained and clean. There are multiple types of rooms at the premises but even the standard rooms are well kept and it won’t disappoint you for the money you pay. Restaurant is located at the top most floor with a panoramic view of the sea. There’s a rooftop bar and another bar by the swimming pool at the ground floor as well. Feel free to ask for cocktails of your choice :)
All in all it was a fantastic weekend at Garton’s Cape.

Beautiful clean comfortable room with clear view out over the ocean and luxury shower room . Staff friendly and helpful Spectacular entrance leading to infinity pool. Small beach area but local fishing boats at one end adding to the atmosphere and interest .

Room tip: We had a sea facing room so nice and quiet with no noise from nearby busy road

Fantastic location on the main road but with quiet rooms (at least those facing away from the road). Built on a cape as the name implies the hotel has a nice infinity pool with a stunning view, and what amounts to a private beach with barely any people except a few fishermen. Good service and great room cleaning. Rooms have balconies and the wind makes for very few if any mosquitoes. Spacious rooms, good level overall of the service and an OUSTANDING hotel manager who really goes out of his way to make the guests feel at home - also the deputy manager was awesome. The hotel also has a rooftop restaurant and bar area with amazing views. The restaurant is a bit weird in that the airconditioning makes a lot of noise, but all in all the restaurant is OK and everything else in this hotel is spectacular.

Highly recommended!

In our trip we have been to other 5 star hotels, but Garten's cape was simply Amazing !
We wanted a peaceful good hotel, this was clean, spacious rooms with all complementary accessories included.
Room 203. facing the sea, breath taking view sunset and in the morning to wake up with. No noise no disturbance.

The rooms are provided with a duet, so if you prefer a lighter cover just ask for it. The Staff ??
Amazing is too little to describe them, From the management staff to the reception, porters , waiters or chefs, all are so friendly, kind and nice, they will make sure that you have everything you needed, enough to make your request.....

The breakfast buffet was great, we ordered also the extras.
Dinner we went on the a la carte which was super.

The pool is super clean, and the towels are provided. Making just a few steps away you can find safe paces for a swim.

Thank you Garten's cape staff, you made our holiday pleasantly memorable.

Room tip: Room 203, corner sea view. switch on mosquito repellent. ask for a lighter bed cover too. Enjoy !
