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.
