When we arrived, an hour after check in, we found that our room wasn't ready for us. Considering the price, and the small property, we thought that this would be a bad start. BUT, the manager rallied the troops as such and had the room ready within 10 minutes! The way the manager dealt with the situation was to be...

There a lot of things to like about Frangipani Tree. It greets you with a real wow view over the pool towards the sea, the rooms are great and it has a relaxing vibe. All staff were friendly and were able to offer support in attaining transport to go out for dinner and to get to Galle. However, for the...

If you're looking for 5-star luxury in Sri Lanka, this is the hotel for you. Beautiful, peaceful hotel with hugely spacious rooms, own private beach (too rough to swim there but beautiful nonetheless), a beautiful crystal-clear swimming pool and fabulous loungers under swaying palm trees. Good location and easy to get around from here by tuk tuk. Good wifi connection....

Really beautiful buildings in an idyllic beachside setting. Glorious swimming pool - very useful as sea is often too rough to swim safely. Delightful helpful staff and really engaged and charming and helpful young Polish owners. They do a great job and we would go back tomorrow if it were feasible.

On arrival in the midday sun, we were greeted with cooling towels and soothing freshly squeezed welcome drinks - the perfect arrival after a long journey. We were instantly swept away by the beauty and amazing views that surrounded us on arrival and the presentation of the whole location, we were even grateful when the room boys asked if we...

Stayed at three different hotels in Sri Lanka, all of very good standard, but Frangipani Tree was just perfect. Many hotels describe themselves unique and luxury without fulfilling the promises. But Frangipani Tree really is unique and luxurious, perfect getaway in a quiet spot in Talpe. Absolutely no complaints! Perfect food, perfect service, friendly smiles, beutiful grounds, lovely room..

The other reviews do say it all. We stayed for 10 days in February 2015 with our 8 month old daughter. It is a honeymoon destination; it is also perfect for families. We were able to put our daughter down at night in a lovely cot that sat under the same enormous mossi net that covered our own giant bed,...

We stayed here for 4 nights in Oliver Ridley room 21st Feb. This is a beautiful beach front location. We spotted turtles, and watched the finches return to the palm trees every night, a spectacular sight. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.
