When you wake up in the morning, you have a really nice view over the sea.If you wanted to walk to the centre of Tangalle, it will take you 5 minutes. It's possible to rent a bicycle, there is free internet and you can change books. The rooms are really big and clean. The staff is friendly and helpfull.
Free WiFi available. In all the rooms, there is a mini-bar.
The Frangipani Beach villa has:
- 3 double rooms

- 1 family room (4 pax)
- 1 cabana with A/C - 1 room which can be a double or a triple room, with a king size bed, mini-bar, hot water, free WIFI.
There is something very special about this place that made me stay my whole holiday here. I don't know if it was the beautifull beach with palmtrees and sea, the very friendly people and great service or the relaxed atmosphere. The only thing I know is that I had a great holiday here and I am going back next year. Frangipani beach villas opened januari 2011 so everything is new. It is a beautifull hotel on the beach between palmtrees where you can relax and have a nice swim. The beds are big and have great matrasses for a good sleep at night. Every room has a terras where you can relax and have a cup of tea (or lunch/dinner if you want).
The hotel has also a restaurant with good Sri Lankan food and delicious fresh seafood! The staff is very friendly and speak good english. They can give you a lot of information about the neighboorhood and can arrange excursions for you. With a tuk-tuk you can go to the rock-temple (a holy temple where you can see a beautifull sundown) or you can go to a turtle-project where you can see big turtles in the wild, even the famous leatherback-turtle. Or you can walk to the mangrove-forest where you can take a boottrip. The hotel can arrange a trip for you to one of the national parks where you can see elephants, buffalos and even leopards. The centre of town is only a minute walk. It is amazing that you are only 5 minutes away from town but at the hotel it is nice and quiet and you don't hear any streetnoice. The sea is beautifull and you can have a good swim there. On the beach you can have nice, long walks without seeing any other tourists. That's what I like about this place: it is not a place with mass-tourism where you see all the tourists on the beach. At Frangipani you can relax under the palmtrees or have a long walk with the feeling that the place is yours (and that's not easy to find any more). It is also great to see the fisherman fish with big nets in the morning. You can see them pulling the nets back to the shore (you can even help them) and see the catch of the day. It is also a great way to get in contact with the local people which are very friendly.
To be short: I can recommend this hotel to everybody (also for a family) it is the best place to have a relaxed holiday!! The hotel has everything you need so you don't have to think of anything and you only have to enjoy your holiday!! I can't wait to go back.

It was fab staying in Frangipani beach Villa. We all were treated very well and enjoyed all during our staying. The beach was very clean and ocean was great for swimming and jumping into waves. Food excellent and all people working there as well. We had a problem with water as it just suddenly stopped working so it was offered to us to use different room. Great service and very friendly owner. Our way from Ella down to Tangalla was excellent organised! It was paradise and I recommend it to you all!
30 paces from a beach it is usually safe to swim from. Plenty of shade (very important). Clean sand tidy beach swept daily. No pestering from locals to buy things. A shower on the beach. A range of sitting and lying options including hammocks. Clean spacious room with modern bathroom and good working reasonably powerful shower. We had room number 1. Well away from traffic noise and not too hot. Close to town and ATM. Space to hang clothes (we always bring way too many). Laundry service. Room cleaned when we say. Good range of food from cheap and cheerful to lobster and large fish. Good standard of cooking and excellent service. Drinks available all day. Good range of drinks. List of possible excursions in the room.
It is near the harbour but local fishing is by row boat so attractive rather than irritating. The property is modern, well built and excellently designed with wonderful décor. The only downside is there is no sunset over the sea. A plus is that it is relatively hard to find on Trip Advisor!
My wife and I stayed at Frangipani for 5 days and then moved on to our next destination in Talalla, but were so "homesick" for Frangipani we returned the same day for 3 more days! Nalin runs a very laid back and relaxing place. He and the rest of the crew made our stay so nice we really hated leaving even after 8 days....but we had to catch a flight.
We stayed in several rooms and can recommend either of the rooms on the top floor facing the water. They offer a bit more privacy and a better view.
The food was great! Augustine the cook did a great job! Very tasty in deed. I can additionally recommend the Sri Lankan Bfast -- string hoppers, egg hoppers, curry, sambal, and tea.....it was outstanding, very fresh and full of flavor! Remember to order it the day before.
Susu, the waiter in the restaurant, is also worth a special mention. He was always right on time with drinks and food. He has a great sense of humor.
The water right off the beach is great for swimming. No rocks or strong currents. We had a great time watching the fishermen haul in their daily catch as well from the hotel's beach. You can help them if you want. I did once, but it is far too much work for a vacation.
All-in-all we had a great time and can highly recommend a stay at Frangipani. I can't wait to return!
I fell in love with this place and people and I recommend it to everyone who looks for beautiful quite place on the beach and want to feel like in paradise.
Frangipani beach villa is located just 7 minutes walk from the town directly on the beautiful beach. There are many sun beds and lovely hammocks for relax. I loved it soo much! The wifi is in the room, at restaurant and on the beach too.
We had very nice and clean room with spacious bathroom in 1st floor with view to the restaurant. The food is soo delicious. You can have fresh sea food dinner every night. The cook is excellent and waiter is very nice too. You will get perfect service. Dining here is very romantic because you can sit on the beach with your feet in the sand and enjoy the moon light and sound of the sea. There was quite big waves for swimming, but we had a fun with wave body board.
All staff is very friendly, kind and helpful especially the owner of the gest house, thank you for everything, we had wounderful and unforgetable stay! I come back for sure! :-)
We stayed there only for one night and decided for a basic room they have in the dislocated cabanas on the beach for 3.000 rps. The room was really basic (we didn't care since we were on the beach all the time) and clean. The place is a real peace of paradise. It is situated right on the beach, with a lot of chairs and sunbeds and hammocks in the shadows. The staff is very nice and kind. Everything is really nicely decorated and the evenings there are really magic. Unfortunately we could stay only for one night, would definitely return and recommend it to anyone!
we stied there 3 nights, location is really good, close to city center; if You want to relax is excellent place, You have everything you need in one place- room, restaurant and beach, You don't have to look for something else. On the beach you can choose- hammock, sunbed or chair, food is really nice and fresh prepared, stuff is very friendly and helpful, this place is very cosy and there must be a drop of magic- once You spent there a while, You want to stay there forever...unfortunately Your normal life is calling You to come back... :)
We stayed 2 nights at Frangipani. The nice rooms in the main house were fully booked but they had 3 basic ones in a self contained bungalow. For 3000 rupees, we got warm water and a fan but it was clean and spacious but dark.
However, the restaurant area is really nice and it walk out to the beach where Frangipani has laid out some covered hammocks and lounge chairs so it was quite quiet and shady. We had a yummy dinner there. I had grilled jumbo prawns with salad and french fries(they cal them chips) and my husband had a tuna steak cooked in a nice sauce. I loved my prawns but thought the tuna was a bit overcooked. Tuna tastes best grilled and medium rare. I also had prawn and egg soup one night which was good and we had a seafood stir fried noodle dish that was good as well but splurge and go for the fresh seafood grilled as the fishermen fish right off our beach so everything is freshly caught.
This is really a 3.5 star review (the food is a 4 and the basic room we had is a 3) but we enjoyed the location and restaurant.
"Laid back" is the best phrase to describe this villa. So don't be shocked by an Ikea bag full of laundry in the hall upon arrival :) The rooms were clean, but quite spartanic. The best side of this villa is the direct access to the marvellous beach - it is just a few meters away! We enjoyed breakfasts and candle-light dinners with the feet in the sand. The staff was very helpful with luggage and other requests. The hotel "boss" is cool, but tried to sell to us a Yale park package for the double price of the same services purchased in the tourist kiosk at the corner of the main street. Ask other providers for reference prices before booking packages in the hotel. In general: come and relax, it is a good address to hang out!
The beach villas are run by Carolina and Nimal, as soon as you arrive it is very evident that the rooms have a woman,s touch and that means everything is very neat,clean and Carolina has added some nice little extra things to make your stay even more comfortable and enjoyable. We stayed there 4 days in January and everything was perfect. The 2 rooms upstairs are very big and you have lots of space, even the bathroom is large and in the evenings you have your own private terrace to enjoy a pre dinner drink. The restaurant serves good food and you can have your meal at the waters edge if you so wish. ''Thank you Carolina for being so helpful and knowledgeable about all that is happening in and around Tangalle.
A really beautiful place to stay - we had a wonderful time here, and would have loved to stay longer.
The Frangipani Beach Villas hotel is a small and really friendly place - the rooms were clean and nice, the food was really good and the guys running the place did a great job of making the stay really enjoyable.
The location on the beach is really idyllic....a little paradise.
Forget the big hotels - this is as good as it gets...
Big thank you for a great time.
