An overall and outstanding hotel steeped in a Sri Lankan cultural awareness that is quite refreshing - not overdone or totally consuming but an added flavor that permeates the ambiance. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful in every contact we had with them. My wife is a career hotelier and when she's happy - it has to be good! And...

The last time I visited Colombo, I was unable to get a room at Taj and had to stay elsewhere. This made me realize all the more how comfortable I was at Taj and any other place in Colombo was just not the same. The staff who are such a familiar sight with their welcoming smiles, the location and the...

Professional and patient staff who understood guests' need and requests. The duty manager spent almost 1 hour when I checked in for our group and allocated the rooms according to our special requirements, with...

As previously descripted. Buyer beware - we stayed here last 3 - 4 years ago and the place has really gone downhill. Demands top dollar for a poor experience. The food is though excellent and worthy of high praise but the restaurant is over flowing with staff that are uncoordinated. So disappointed - this was to be a really special...
