Lovely hotel with a great relaxed feeling. Nothing was ever to difficult for staff and all were lovely to chat with. Food was great maybe a little expensive but food was very fresh and the kitchen was very clean. I wish they had a few drink specials for guests as at $15 Aus for a cocktail your bill does add...

Me & my girlfriend spent 6 nights at The Frangipani Tree after 8 days of travelling around various parts of Sri Lanka. I have to say, what a magical hotel this is! The whole hotel has a beautiful minimal feel about it from the moment you walk through the front doors. We stayed in the Leatherback Two which was lovely,...

Lovely property and very attentive staff. Try the cooking experience on the lawn, very good food and informative. The 6.30pm flight of the swallows is something to behold, followed by a good gin and tonic and a fish curry. It's location is close to Galle, just a short Tut-Tut ride away.

We spent four nights here at this beautifully designed small villa hotel on the Indian Ocean at Thalpe. It is extraordinary lovely and well designed and the price reflects this. Our only gripes were: food very patchy for a place this sophisticted; tiny things like rock hard Lurpack at breakfast and a wine list where anything under 6,000 rupees was...

Tranquil location just outside Galle city centre. Lovely grounds upkept by lovely ground staff who peacefully pottered about amongst the trees and birds. The large central pool was delightfully cool on a hot day. All rooms are located around the pool we had an upstairs room which initially thought would be a step down from the villa type rooms on...

Nice place for relaxation. However first impression of the villa is different from the way it is portrayed on the website. Food is decent however more options preferred. Apart from the stay rest of amenities are overpriced like transport, food, etc and hence we sourced our own suppliers
