“Paradise Found”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

we stayed at the Frangipani tree a couple of weeks ago to attend our best friends wedding (actually held at the Frangipani Tree, Thalpe too) - from the moment we arrive until we left we were extremely well looked after - nothing was too much trouble and all of the staff seemed very happy and helpful. I would sincerely look to book here again as it was probably one of the best hotel experiences I have had (and I travel a huge amount for my job)....please think of this hotel if you are in the south west of Sri Lanka. Perfect for all - couples, single, sightseeing, relaxing, spa (the massages are excellent) Thanks Justyna for looking after us so well!

Room Tip: They will arrange a pick up from Colombo airport (and return) which is good value and essential in S...

We loved our time here.
The look and feel of the whole place was a consistent pleasure. Loved the architecture, the rooms with their tasteful, refined design. They have resisted the option to fit in more rooms.. leaving huge rooms, huge bathrooms, private outdoor furniture and gardens.
Beach is right there though not safe for swimming. Good for spotting turtles though.
It's quiet, service attentive, food outstanding. Classy all around.

This was our third trip to Sri Lanka and this was by far thebest hotel we have stayed in. The staff were attentive withut being obtrusive, the meals were perfectly cooked and it was nice to be able to eat when and where you chose. Thankyou to everyone at The Frangipani Tree for making our holiday perfect. From the manager down we could not have had better treatment. Sheer Bliss!!!!!!!

Room Tip: choose Hawksbill 1 this has an outside bathroom Bliss!!!

We stayed at The Frangipani Tree for 2 nights in April 2014 before moving onto to their affiliated hotel, Fort Printers. We were blown away by the comfort and hospitality. Before arriving in Sri Lanka we were concerned that the needs of our 6 month old would be met swiftly but I think he was attended to better here than he is at home. Highlights include the beautiful four poster beds and outdoor bathrooms, picturesque secluded beach, amazing view of the pool from our room and world class chef. Thanks to all the staff for making it wonderful.

A welcoming, chilled out oasis in a beautiful setting! Justyna was so kind and all of the staff were friendly, helpful and relaxed . Big thanks to all of them! They made our stay so good, we returned again before coming home. Watching the turtles in the sea and experiencing the roosting swallows made the place so magical. Worth every penny and we will return!

Room Tip: The garden room is lovely and private. Some rooms have open air bathrooms, which are lovely, but the...

I spent a week at Frangipani Tree, enjoying the amazing location (yes, it is exactely how it looks in the picture) and the flawless services. The staff is there to cater to every need, the food (from breakfast to dinner) is simply excellent (make sure you try the srilankan breakfast!). If swimming in pool while watching the ocean in the perfect tropical setting is your dream holiday, the Frangipani Tree is the place to go.

We stayed here in March 2014 and had a fantastic time for 3 days and nights. It is actually a couple of km down the coastal road from Unawatuna which is a good thing as this is much better than being in town. The staff were very friendly and attentive (even inviting me and my father in law to play cricket with them one Sunday). The food was excellent and the beach and pool both beautiful. You can't swim in the sea here but it is a very short walk or tuk-tuk ride to get to places you can.

We particularly enjoyed seeing the turtles playing in the sea right in front of the hotel and also the thousands of swallows nesting in the palm trees every dusk.

The rooms were really brilliant, I've never stayed anywhere with such a spectacular bathroom before! Really enjoyed the four poster beds and large verandas for evening drinks. Overall a reat place that we would love to go back to.

Room Tip: We didn't see the Olive Ridley rooms but the other two room types (Loggerhead and Hawskbill?) we...
