Stayed here 1 night on our first night in Sri Lanka. Very comfortable room, excellent food and the very best service, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was delicious too. Weather wasn't good enough for us to enjoy the little private beach much but the location is excellent. Caring staff, would definitely recommend.

We were lucky enough to spend 4 nights here and we loved very minute of our stay. The hotel is beautiful, set in lovely grounds with access straight onto one of the cleanest beaches we’ve been to in the world. Our room was huge, with stunning views, was wonderful to shower and look out over the Indian Ocean. We had a couple of evening meals during our stay and the food was delicious, one of the best curries we have had during our time in Sri Lanka. The hash browns with breakfast are the best I have ever eaten. The staff were all incredibly helpful and friendly and made our stay even more pleasant. The highlight for me, was the little puppy and her mum who live at the hotel. I was given the honour of naming her. Will be a long time before we forget our wonderful experience at the Frangipani Tree, we were so sad to leave.

What a wonderful property overlooking the Indian Ocean. The rooms are clean and beautiful and the restroom is something. If you are in your room, tired, you can enjoy the bath in the bath tub out in the open. The property has its clean private beach. The staff are very welcoming, the manager and its entire team makes you feel at home. The food is delicious, drinks are refreshing. Also the location is great. Unawatuna is 5 mins drive and mirissa is 20 mins away. So you can enjoy the beauty of ocean at this property and at the same time you can enjoy the famous beaches for food, partying and surfing. Overall it’s a 10/10.

We had a wonderful stay at the Frangipani. Originally we had booked for six nights but decided to extend for a further five nights. Buddika, the manager, and his excellent team made us feel so welcome and were so helpful. We had sea facing rooms which were extremely comfortable and peaceful. I had some of the best nights sleep at this hotel. The beds are very comfortable and the air conditioning and fan work really well. The semi outside bathrooms are lovely. The rooms are well maintained. The food is delicious too with a really choice particularly for breakfast. The pool is a really good size. There a a number of good restaurants just a few minutes away by tuk tuk. The only negative was their centralised booking system which goes through the Edwards Collection. This was not particularly easy and could have put me off booking. However, I am pleased that I persevered as, once there, Buddika and his team were so courteous, helpful and delightful. I am looking forward to returning.

Had one of the most relaxing and enjoyable stays I have EVER had at this hotel in January 2022. Unfortunately for the hotel, and Sri Lanka as a whole, there were very few tourists about and we had the resort to ourselves, for most of our 7-night stay. The staff, gardens, food and resort dog were delightful. The team couldn't go far enough to keep us happy, and would offer off-menu ideas for our lunches and dinners. The hotel is located about 30 minutes by tuk-tuk from Galle, where there are many shopping and eating possibilities, along with wonderful history, markets and sights. Tuk-tuks are reliable and without fuss - pre-agreed prices are respected and min. negotiation needed. Neighbouring hotels have some excellent restaurants and welcome outside guests. Can't wait to go back.
