Loved the Taj!
We had a great stay at this hotel. We were upgraded to Executive Level and the room was amazing. Great decor and view and an amazing bathtub. We loved the lobby for cappuccinos in the morning, too!

We just used the facility to stay one night. It was average.

Very good 8.0
Our room was comfortable and had a great view of the sea . Staff were all helpful and courteous . The only unsatisfactory experience was the smell of sewage at times in the bathroom ! As we were there only for a short time , we didn’t want to make a fuss and change our room ( no 621) but the Maintenance dept in the hotel may want to sort it out for future guests .

Good 6.0
Some rooms are very dated. We had to change the first one we got as that was not acceptable for a 5 star property and definitely not expected from a Taj property.

New Years Stay
Taj Samudra feels like an extension of home in Sri Lanka as Taj is a chain we are all used to ! It was all decked up for Christmas and New Years and felt very joyous & festive ! The General Manager himself makes rounds of the lobby and connects with the guests to add an extra special touch ! Everyone is really helpful ! The newly refurbished rooms on the 4th floor were very spacious and comfortable ! All in all a very pleasant stay and value for money!

One night at the Taj
Beautiful hotel. I only stayed one night so I did not use the facilities - pool, fitness room, etc. My room was comfortable. The shower was in the bathtub, which I generally don’t like but the rain shower head and the glass doors made up for it. You just have to be careful getting in and out. The restaurant serves mostly Asian food. I ordered a lobster roll which is a specialty borrowed from the Boston Taj. It was more bread than lobster. Breakfast, which also consisted mostly of Asian dishes, had enough western food for a good western breakfast. Chris at the concierge desk was especially helpful to me. He secured a car and driver for my trip through Sri Lanka, advised me on my itinerary, and recommended hotels for my journey. I would definitely stay at the Colombo Taj on a return visit.

Exceptional 10.0
We needed to check in early due to our flight arriving into Colombo and they were very accommodating and were able to give us a room. The Taj is in a great position just opposite the beach were you can walk along the foreshore at night and look at all the food sellers. Highly recommend.
