Wonderful stay here at the Frangipani Tree. The staff were extremely attentive and the hotel was beautiful. An oasis of calm. The beach is not really anything special though. However the pool was great for swimming.

My wife and I booked only a few days before our arrival at Frangipani as a bit of luxury at the end of our 2 week trip/honeymoon to Sri Lanka. Justyna and Wojtec could not have been more accommodating or helpful and reflected the fact that our stay was also part of our honeymoon. Because we booked so late in... More

We stayed there for 4 nights with a group of friends in November 2014 and loved the place. Beautiful villas, great pool, good breakfast, warm and friendly staff. Will be back one day! I had the beautiful beachfront room in the separate villa with outdoors bathroom. The rooms next to the road can be noisier due to traffic although some... More

I stayed in Frangipani Tree for 12 nights. I found in that place everything I was looking for, absolutely perfect place for relaxation, privacy and beatiful landscape. The resort stuff was pleasant and very, very friendly. Managers, Justyna and Wojtek, have become my real friends, so it is not necessary to emphasize how lovely are people who will take care... More

Perfect in every way. Our room on the 2nd floor was absolutely stunning and the service was better than at any other hotel I have ever stayed. The hotel is beautifully styled and the pool and beach are stunning. The fish curry for lunch was the best curry I have ever had and breakfast is incredible. Cannot wait to return... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights during our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. Our room (Olive Ridley upper 2) was huge with views of the ocean and the whole time was so relaxing. It's a short tuk tuk ride into Galle or walking distance (beach and road) to Unawantuna so there are things to do near by... More

Really lovely, peaceful place to stay. Small number of rooms giving it a very private feel. The rooms are very spacious, clean and bright looking out to the beautiful views of the sea with turtles swimming off the beach. The staff are really friendly and professional. The food is great and reasonably priced compared to some of the beach restaurants... More

Spacious rooms, tasteful decor, lovely staff with really good cooking, terrific spot overlooking the beach. Ideal if you want to get away, be looked after. Views of the sea are delightful, but you can't swim there given the undertow and reef. Beach walks are fine, and there's a bathing beach around 1km walk away

Can't say anything remotely negative about it. Quiet, beautiful, clean, lovely staff, family friendly....even with our crazy 3 year old running around! Quite close to lots of lively areas, but the hotel itself sits on what we experienced to be a very quiet, stunning beach. We loved it and would go back in a heartbeat.
