This resort has a serious cleanliness problem and the service standard is extremely poor. The shower heater was not working one night, the staff said it can be fixed in one hour, we went out for 3 hours dinner and the heater was still not fixed when we returned. I showered with a freezing cool water that night. When I... More

My wife and I have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Frangipani Tree. This is a delightful spot, right on the edge of the Indian Ocean with the waves breaking on the sandy shore. Here is a haven of peace and seclusion even though you are near the main road and also near to Galle. The hotel... More

We visited this lovely place, because my brother has stayed there some time ago and he wanted to see the property once more. Although he told me stories about this place so I had an image, it occurs to be way more than I expected. We were greeted at the front office by Justyna and Wojtek, two managers looking after...

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'... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
