My husband and two children (1yr old and 6 yr old) had a wonderful stay at the Frangipani Tree hotel for 4 nights. We are both architects and immediately fell in love with the cast concrete finishes, polished concrete floors, sleek furniture, infinity pool and minimalist, almost Scandinavian look with an airy, tropical feel in a stunning beach-side setting.

Beautiful resort, quiet, private, very good service. Helpful staff, eager to please if a little slow at times but there is no need to rush. Enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Immaculate! Would definitely return.

We visited with friends, for just 3 nights and stayed in the Hawksbill rooms. Love, love, love the industrial design look of the place! The four poster, netting encased bed, made with simple steel and polished wood was beautiful as well as comfortable. The outdoor bathrooms were elegant, private and appointed with everything you need. The grounds are immaculate and... More

Fantastic service- the staff were all so welcoming and service was beyond expectations. Will definitely be back. Early check-in was another fantastic touch and made our whole weekend as we arrived at 5am!!

We were lucky enough to spend two nights here. The location was perfect...we could see the waves crashing on the shore, watch sea turtles swimming in the surf and kingfishers watching the world go by. The pool was warm and welcoming. The room was huge with an outdoor bath and shower and a private garden. The food was really good... More

My family and I (2 boys 15 and 12 years) spent 3 nights from 16-19 July. We arrived very late and Asanka was waiting to greet us and served us chilled juices, cold towels and only did the check in process the next day. We enjoyed their hospitality and the GM Namal who arranged our trip to Yala National Park... More

We stayed at Frangipani Tree for a week in July with our 4 small children. The hotel is stunning, love the design, relaxed atmosphere and location. Although there are no specific facilities for children, we couldn't have been made more welcome. The rooms are spread out in 3 small buildings so we didn't feel like we were intruding on other...

A small and very well managed and maintained hotel. The staff were really excellent. Food was brilliant. Rooms are very nice. Brand new, large and a little rustic as well. Food was really amazing especially the Sri Lankan side of things. Superb quality and very authentic. Better than what we had at any restaurant. Our family would highly recommend this... More

We recently stayed at the Frangipiani Tree and had a wonderful time. Most rooms face onto the sea which is great as you have the constant noise of the waves. The pool is perfect. The staff are very accommodating and attentive. It was a great place to underwind!

Stayed here in March as a couple (ocean front room/lower level). Amazing place, we both loved the design (by a well known architect) which was minimalist with clean lines that framed the beautiful location well. Bedroom: Very large and simple. Bed was very hard (which i didn't mind at all but definitely not as plush as some hotels). Lovely polished... More
