The Frangipani’s calling card may be its spectacular Meads Bay location, but its Spanish Colonial Revival façade — pale rose-colored stucco walls, wrought iron railings, clay tile roof and archways aplenty — is equally appealing. Interiors nod to the Caribbean setting — think rattan furnishings, mahogany cabinetry, limestone tile floors, pale yellow walls and more than a few floral throw pillows.
Bed & Bath
The 19 rooms range from a cozy 200 square feet to spacious suites. Residential-style suites are equipped with full kitchens, as well as private patios or balconies, and bathrooms come stocked with frangipani-scented products. Sand lovers should opt for rooms on the ground floor, where you can step straight from your room onto the beach.
The Frangipani is home to the Straw Hat restaurant, an island institution that relocated to the property a few years back. Visitors and locals alike pack into the welcoming space or onto the beachfront deck, for Carib-fusion food like jerk-braised pork belly with sautéed chorizo or grilled local crayfish with sweet plantains. Beyond the culinary offerings, Frangipani is a perfect pick for beach lovers, as it occupies a lovely stretch of Meads Bay. Chill out on comfy loungers in the shade of a palapa or, if you’re more of an active type, take advantage of free non-motorized (kayaks, Hobie Cats) and motorized (tubing, wakeboarding, water-skiing) water sports on offer.
How to Get There
Got married down with with a group of over 100+ guests. Had the entire hotel and surrounding area filled up. Couldn't have been happier to have Frangipani as the anchor point for the entire week's festivities. Resort was fantastic, clean, accomodating, welcoming. People were equally wonderful. Would happily return to this property for a intimate vacation, larger group desitination, or anything else you could consider. Have stayed here twice already and cannot wait for our third time to come.
A fantastic week at a very special place. We had a marvelous destination wedding that delivered on all expectations. Scott and Shannon were the perfect team to help my son and daughter-in-law with all the planning and execution of a myriad of events. The setting is stunning, with Mead's Bay providing one of the loveliest beaches I've ever experienced. The ocean, pool, adjacent restaurant and super attentive staff made every minute feel like paradise. We all want to go back!
Great venue. Right on the water. Beautiful view, with a pool overlooking the ocean. There's a restaurant, with a bar, on property. Plus, they've got the FRANGICAT...
The FRANGICAT is a pontoon speedboat of sorts. I was very tempted to commandeer the cat and set sail on the high seas. However, I refrained. Next time, though, FRANGICAT is mine...
