We stayed here 4 nights and loved it. We considered a few different hotels in the area but having seen the others when there glad we chose this one. It's about a $5 tuktuk ride into Galle, which we did a few times. We were thinking of staying inside the Fort, but glad we didn't as we would have missed... More

Our second visit to this little slice of heaven. We wanted a break from our busy hectic life and we got it. Our room was outstanding as expected and the property had been very very well maintained over the last 2 years and improved in some areas. The staff are helpful and obliging. The tooth fairy surprisingly had to visit... More

We came here to attend a friends wedding and we loved it! The rooms are spacious, the views are amazing and the staff are brilliant. The whole place has a real family feel and the service is second to none. Highly recommend staying here, real paradise.

We have just stayed here for 5 nights with our 4 month old daughter and have come away feeling utterly relaxed and unwound! We were in Sri Lanka for a friend's wedding in Thalpe and booked this resort through a travel agent. Upon arrival we were greeted with warm, friendly staff who could not do enough for us. I was...

Just went for the day with a few friends and had lunch there. The pictures really don't do the place justice because it's really well maintained and looks beautiful!

From the moment that we arrived, we felt relaxed and welcomed. The villas are amazing, very private but you still felt a part of a holiday community. Our villa was spotlessly clean and the amenities were amazing. The infinity pool overlooking the ocean was a welcomed relief to the warm weather and lazing around the pool was very relaxing. We...

This was our second stay at The Frangipani Tree and it fulfilled all of our expectations if not surpassed them. Although pricier than some other options, what you get in return is completely worth it. Lovely seaside location, well sized, minimalist decor that is both comfortable and functional, excellent and personable service and great food. Whether you are looking for... More

We went to Frangipani for 6 days. We like the place, just outside the rumours of the citycentre. Within a five minute walk you are in the middle of the citycentre. The garden is beautifull, rooms are big, breakfast is nice. If you want they can arrange tours for you, wherever you want to go. And after a long day... More

We had an absolutely wonderful stay and we cannot wait to be back. The service, food and attention to detail was suburb! Highly recommend it! We had a free massage and a Sri Lankan cooking class!
