The management here were fantastic. The rooms were very large and easily fit our family of 4. The setting was beautiful, the food was outstanding. We wished we could have stayed longer. A great place for couples and families. This is a fabulous place to stay away from the touristy beaches nearby, but are still accessible by a short tuk-tuk... More

We had an amazing time .The staff and management are the standout here the management and staff are so obliging and wanting to help wherever possible they could not have made our stay more pleasant. We were in Sri Lanka for a wedding and had travelled from New Zealand and Australia and could not believe our luck at finding such... More

Waking up to the sound of the Indian ocean was lovely, and pool was always immaculately clean. Food was good & the Management team were great,... More

What a great little boutique hotel! I don't remember the name of our room but it was large and airy, overlooking the pool and with a beautiful outdoor bathroom. The design is very minimal meets sri lankan, lots of wood and slate. The pool is just stunning and the whole Frangipani vibe, laid back cool. There's a tree at the... More

And of course fabulous infinity pool. It would be a little churlish to bemoan not being able to swim in the ocean when you have such a great pool but you are always aware of its powerful presence. Lovely couple who manage Frangipani couldn't be more helpful

This was our first hotel (of six) for 2 week visit to Sri Lanka. Lovely atmosphere, we stayed in Hawksbill family suite. Great outdoor bathrooms. Had a little trouble with the aircon which they went out of their way to fix immediately. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Enjoyed our first of many rice and curries, always the best option, breakfast... More

We hosted a reception dinner at the Frangipani Tree for our friends who had come from more than 20 different countries to celebrate our wedding with us. The event exceeded our expectations in every way. Through the whole planning process we felt well taken care off. We met multiple times with the owner for food tastings and for the selection... More

We stayed at the Frangipani Tree for 3 nights at the end of our trip to Sri Lanka. It was a lovely, relaxing way to spend the last couple of nights. It is a stunning, beach front hotel with enormous rooms, a beautiful outlook and friendly staff. The included breakfast was delicious - fresh curd, fruit, eggs, bacon and sausages.... More

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
