We stayed two nights in the Frangipani tree and it was just brilliant. The reviews and pictures made it look great and it lived up to expectations. The rooms are large, modern, clean and very comfortable and the ensuite open air garden bathrooms are utterly amazing. The hotel grounds are lovely and sit right on the stunning beach. The service...

We have just returned to Frangipani Tree after 12 months and it is still an absolutely amazing place to stay. The staff are the most helpful you can meet, nothing is too much trouble, and the food is superb and freshly cooked and can be served on you own veranda if you wish. No wonder it won a 2015 Travellers'...

My husband and I spent the last four nights of our honeymoon in Sri Lanka here and we fell in love with the place. The villas are beautiful and each one has its own outdoor garden bathroom and private veranda, where we spent hours whiling away the time! The service was also exceptional, and nothing was ever too much to...

I spent three wonderful nights at this great hotel and resort on the beach not far from Unawatuna and Galle. Besides the beautiful setting, the rooms are large and contemporary (tropical modern) and the service and staff are uniformly kind and helpful. The food was excellent and freshly prepared. I would highly recommend this property if you are traveling on...

Frangipani is a beautiful hotel - easily the nicest place we stayed during our 3 week trip in Sri Lanka. The staff were very professional and more than happy to bring breakfast or drinks to the room without any additional charge. They even gave us a mobile phone to call day or night for anything we needed! The rooms very...

We stayed at this hotel for a wonderful four very relaxing days. We stayed in the room called Upper 1 . It was gorgeous. Stunning location with a view that we just could not get enough of. Loved the sound of the waves all day and night. Everything was beautifully arranged for us including an extra bed for our son...

We have returned to this beautiful place because we were so happy with our first trip . This is a luxury hotel but in the very best low-key way . Justyna, the manager, is an amazing woman and she contributes to the very special energy of the place . There is nothing she will not do to help and advise...

We really liked this hotel, but it was the most expensive of our stay (I believe we stayed in 9 hotels), and definitely not our favorite. Here is our review: The pros: the rooms are lovely-- spacious, bright, clean, and comfortable. The bathrooms are also spotless and beautiful. In addition, our 2 rooms (we stayed in different rooms for 2...

The Frangipani Tree hotel was the loveliest hotel we stayed in during our 12 night 5 hotel tour of southern sri lanka. It is a wonderfully quiet, secluded, classily done up boutique hotel just ten minutes south of Galle. We stayed in the Olive Ridley beach house, which was enormous and had a lovely, private-feeling outdoor verandah. Since this room...

We originally booked this villa for 7 nights over the New Year period only to learn just before we left home that the booking had been messed up and we were booked for 3 nights only. Whilst we were pretty upset the Managers arranged 4 nights for us in the master suite at Thambili House in Galle which gave us...
