My partner and I went here for a relaxing holiday and we were not disappointed. The value of the hotel is excellent, the food equally as good. The best part was the sunset even night, the migratory birds who flew in at dusk to settle in the palm trees, the family of sea turtles playing in the surf, the fire-flys coming out when it gets dark, great wine, excellent fresh seafood and all right outside your private balcony. Bliss!
The staff knew exactly how much attention we needed (or didn't need) and it was very private. The outside bathroom was lovely too.
We hope to be back as soon as possible.

The best thing about Frangipani Tree is its location. Just a few steps away is a private, secluded beach. The rooms are so welcoming, and the bathroom, oh so luxurious!
Everything about the place spells "REALXED", no one is in a rush or hurry, we really unwinded at this place. The food that the chef prepared for us was delicious and we could have our table arranged anywhere to dine, made us feel very special.
I highly reccommend this place to anyone exploring the south coast.

Such a stunning hotel, just what we hoped for and more. My husband and I spent 5 nights at the Frangipani Tree in November 2010. The rooms were gorgeous, huge beds with a stunning outdoor bathroom and a perfect outdoor sitting/chill out area.

The food was exceptional with a perfect mix of Sri Lankan and modern european food on offer. The jumbo prawns were incredible. Sri Lanka breakfasts were also a great experience.

We would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to visit Sri Lanka and wanting a perfect chill out holiday.

We spent 3 nights at the Frangipani Tree with our 10 month old baby and had a great time, the staff were very accomodating about providing meals at our villa so we could relax and enjoy dinner while our baby slept. The food was exceptional and the rooms very tastefully done, bathroom was the best I've seen anywhere. The location was great. We couldn't recommend the Frangipani Tree highly enough.

The service is very personal, attentive without being overly so. What a great escape! Frangipani tree is not just gorgeous, it is a true delight to watch nature in its many different manifestations from this vantage point. Turtles in the sea, fireflies at night, the rush of the waves. Absolute heaven. I spent 5 days there, and couldn't tear myself away. I didn't find any reason to leave this idyll to go in to town, but finally did so on my 5th day there for 2 hours. The town has some great little stores, outdoor cafes and such. Thanks to Wojtek for being such a lovely host!
