The Frangipani Tree is a real surprise when you arrive off a busy road. It's beautifully designed and the accommodation is amazing. The service is excellent and friendly. Breakfast is good but if want Sri Lankan you need to book it the night before. The let down is the dinner menu which is very expensive and frankly uninspiring. A shame...

We stayed at the Frangipani for 5 days and they were complete pleasure. You arrived through a high wooden gate to a view that is pure Sri Lanka, a beautiful pool surrounded by palm trees and a view and sound of the see, a true delight. We were greeted and shown around, then shown to our room. We went for...

Loved it here so much. Attentive but relaxed and low key service. Thanks to all the staff. Amazing food. Loved our room- Leatherback 1 or 2- as it had plenty of room for the 3 of us and the outdoor bathroom was such a nice tropical touch. Highly recommend watching the sea turtles in the ocean and the swallows at...

Behind a non-descript fence on a main road is a sign that read "The Frangipani Tree". It gave us no indication of what lay beyond.... once the gate opened and we went in, we discovered a beautiful garden and a pool that looked out to the Ocean. Our room was not one of the ocean- facing villas but a ground...
