The Frangipani Tree is fantastic and it is perfect for relaxation.
We booked - room and transfer from Colombo airport - directly with the hotel - and the response was prompt and courteous. We used PayPal to deposit the 25% of the total amount, the procedure was very simple.
Our bedroom was clean, spacious and modern, with four poster bed (with mosquito net) and a big sofa.
The bathroom was enormous, closed (because I dont' like open air bathroom) and clean.
Food was delicious, a special mention to the tuna sandwich (with salad and chips), it was very tasty!!
Lunches and dinners at the hotel were perfect: romantic setting and fantastic food, we ate specialties of Sri Lanka and a lot of fish (such as tuna, white fish, lobster).
In front of the hotel the beach was beautiful,with many coconut palm trees.
We walked on the beach and we were the only people on it...what a wonderful feeling!
Make sure you are near the beach around 5 pm to watch turtles swimming in the sea, it was amazing!
The sea - we were there at the end of march - was very rough and it was not safe for swimming.
Outside the hotel it was very easy to catch a tuk tuk, we visited the turtles hatchery in Habaraduwa and Handunugoda tea factory (a 140-year old white tea plantation) in Tittagalla.
The Staff was very friendly and helpful, thanks to everybody!
