I always book myself into the Taj Samudra when in Colombo. The location is excellent - the view is lovely if you get a sea facing room, and the breakfast buffet is lavish and outstanding, with a friendly chef greeting each guest. The Gym is pretty good, too. But the evening ritual at sundown is what captured my heart. We...

Was there for a weekend but was amazed by the grand look of it. Food was good especially for the Indians. Price wise it was worth a stay! Location wise it presents you at a sea facing (not beach facing) venue.

great experience on a work trip. will definitely be back to spend time at the pool and book a ocean view. The hotel was very clean and the service was wonderful! The rooms were a good size (big enough to practice yoga in the am). The rooms were modern and clean! Room service was quick and delicious!

Common areas on main floor are relatively well maintained and still quite pleasant. Rooms are old, damp, and not very clean. A disappointing performance by Taj. Need a complete refurbishment. Service is ok. Food quality needs improvement.

I travelled with 20 other colleagues and had to share the hotel with Bangladesh Cricket team. Rooms are clean but basic. I did have few colleagues who had crawling visitors in the room. The lobby and restaurants are good and functional. Overall a good hotel but you expect more from a 5 star Taj property.
