This hotel is simply beautiful! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, the food is out of the world and the setting is just pure class. We had a beachfront room (furthest one to the end of the resort) and it was perfect. The rooms are basic but we didn't want for anything more. The outside bathrooms are definitely the...

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights after arriving in Sri Lanka and we wished we had stayed longer! We were in the Leatherback 2 room and it was absolutely gorgeous. There was a huge outdoor bathroom, a very comfortable bed and a big private outdoor area with a daybed, table and chairs and very comfortable beanbags. The...

We stayed here for 3 days last week. The service was great, the upkeep impeccable and the food delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves here and would recommend to anyone. It's close enough to Galle and Unawatuna but is a quiet area away from all the busy street. You can't swim in the sea near it, but we watched sea turtles...

Where to start... The place is amazing. Rooms are huge and give you the feel of a summer villa. Stuff is attentive to every little detail. Our 8year old loved the freedom of being around by himself and discovering nature (lizard, birds, squirrels and a monkey) in the garden. We also had a lovely crib with its own mosquito net...

What a beautiful hotel, a peaceful, tranquil slice of calm by the sea. Fabulous staff who made you feel completely at home. Delicious food and accommodation to die for with a bathtub under the stars. Will definitely be visiting again.

The Frangipani Tree is a real surprise when you arrive off a busy road. It's beautifully designed and the accommodation is amazing. The service is excellent and friendly. Breakfast is good but if want Sri Lankan you need to book it the night before. The let down is the dinner menu which is very expensive and frankly uninspiring. A shame...
