We stayed at the Frangipani Tree for 1 week and we had the most wonderful holiday! The rooms are beautiful. We stayed in Olive Ridley 3 which was a lovely big room as we have 2 young children. They added in a cot and a small bed both with mosquito nets for the children. The kids had fun in the... More

We travelled to Frangipani Tree to get married. I found this hotel actually by accident and fell in love with it straigh away. Usually when you check pictures on the website they look much better then in reality but not in this case. Place is stunning, staff so warm and welcome, food out of this world (actually prepared by one... More

I stayed at the hotel in February for a wedding and have to say that the setting is beautiful and the management were really attentive and did a great job with arrangements. The food was wonderful and the rooms are very spacious. The outdoor bathroom is stunning, really gorgeous. A couple of things: there is no ability to put a... More

When we arrived at the Frangipani Tree we were really blown away. The grounds and buildings are just beautiful. They had planned to put us in one of the larger upstairs rooms but we requested a change to something with outdoor space to accommodate my smoker husband, and they were quick to assist and gave us a choice of rooms...

We had three nights at this amazing property and did not want to leave. It is about 20 minutes from Galle, right on the beach. We found this area to have the most amazing coastline. Our room was enormous with an outdoor/indoor bathroom, signature concrete everything and a super comfortable bed. Justina the manager is fantastic and makes sure you... More

We stayed at this beautiful propery for 9 nights and had our wedding and honeymood there, and this stay was truly amazing! The hotel is superb, with its minimalistic design, quiet grounds and fabulous ocean view. There are only 9 rooms, and all feels so private, like you are on your own! In the beginning we stayed at the Leatherback... More

We could unfortunately only stay one night as the hotel was full after that. The room was beautiful and huge, and the outdoor bathroom with the bathtub under a frangipani tree spectacular. The pool is large and very stylish, and the view from it to the ocean amazing. The small beach is nice and unspoilt (can't swim there though). We... More

I stayed with my wife and two sons, aged 13 and 11, for 7 nights from 4th April 2014. I have to say that we all really enjoyed our stay. The room was modern, clean and perfect for us. The hotel environment relaxing, beautiful and a place to look forward to returning to after trips out into Galle or elsewhere.... More

We had our wedding at the Frangipani Tree on the 12th April, it exceeded our expectations in every way. The service, organisation, celebrant, food, setting, photography, fire eaters, drummers, dancers, jazz band and sparrows all made for a magical wedding for us and our guests. We stayed here for two nights and the outdoor bathroom was wonderful particularly to have... More

We had the warmest welcome from Justyna and our stay was just perfect. We stayed in Hawksbill 1 which had a fabulous, spacious bedroom and the most incredible outdoor bathroom. Having your own outside space with the ocean view was super. We stayed when there were quite a few young families staying and instead of lying by the pool we... More
