Just went for the day with a few friends and had lunch there. The pictures really don't do the place justice because it's really well maintained and looks beautiful! We had lunch there and the food was really good and we had no complaints! Really good location to go visit Galle fort as well! Staff were really friendly! Definitely want... More

From the moment that we arrived, we felt relaxed and welcomed. The villas are amazing, very private but you still felt a part of a holiday community. Our villa was spotlessly clean and the amenities were amazing. The infinity pool overlooking the ocean was a welcomed relief to the warm weather and lazing around the pool was very relaxing. We...

This was our second stay at The Frangipani Tree and it fulfilled all of our expectations if not surpassed them. Although pricier than some other options, what you get in return is completely worth it. Lovely seaside location, well sized, minimalist decor that is both comfortable and functional, excellent and personable service and great food. Whether you are looking for... More

We went to Frangipani for 6 days. We like the place, just outside the rumours of the citycentre. Within a five minute walk you are in the middle of the citycentre. The garden is beautifull, rooms are big, breakfast is nice. If you want they can arrange tours for you, wherever you want to go. And after a long day... More

We had an absolutely wonderful stay and we cannot wait to be back. The service, food and attention to detail was suburb! Highly recommend it! We had a free massage and a Sri Lankan cooking class! It was by far the best experience we had in Sri Lanka even though we came at what was the start of a rainy... More

I would go back in a heartbeat. The property is an oasis of calm just off the busy road that runs from Unawatuna to points East--which you can't hear at all because of the crashing waves. We moved rooms a few times, and I can say that all of them are beautiful, especially the rooftop ocean view room. However, there... More

The hotel (both the rooms and the main areas) was really nice and the location beautiful. We don't beleive it is value for money though. We stayed for 7 nights and was informed that we had to change room during our stay. It has never happened to us before and we beleived it very strange indeed. We are a family... More

Beautiful setting, fantastic, clean rooms and amazing bathroom. Food was delicious and service wonderful, attentive but not intrusive. Staff friendly and helpful for organising local surfing trips. Unable to swim at beach but thats the only negative.

This is a beautiful hotel by any standards. The location is perfect right on the shore of the Indian Ocean and turtles can be seen just beyond the surf. The beach is narrow and sandy, but not suitable for swimming due to strong currents. There is, however a lovely horizon pool just a few feet back from the beach. Being... More

My boyfriend and I spent 2 nights here and did not want to leave. 15 mins from Galle, this hotel was a perfect pitstop after a couple of days in Colombo. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and the hotel has a beautiful view of the Indian Ocean which comes alive with swimming sea turtles between 4-6. I... More
