Taj upholds its name even in the foreign country. Great hotel with amazing infrastructure and friendly staff. We watched the T20 world cup finals here, and the arrangement was very good along with food and drinks. Latitude restaurant had Bangladesh Food Festival and the food was just amazing. The Navratna restaurant was very good, we were craving for good Indian... More

The hotel building itself is very majestic, built around a heritage building site coupled with being alongside the Indian ocean. The hotel is very spread out with large well furnished rooms and a lot of restaurants to dine in. Service is top of the line including a Wifi butler which is a first for me.

I think the hotel was slighly outdated and run down, albeit having been recently renovated. The elevators, corridors and bathrooms could do with some love. Staff were super helpful and friendly, although a pair of cuff links never made it back from laundry (primarily our fault for forgetting to remove them, yes). Pool area and restaurant were nice. Great breakfast.... More

Visited hotel after a gap of a year. Lobby and restaurants have been done and seem to be brighter and bigger. Best rooms are one facing toward Galle Face. Taj continues to serve good food and amazing breakfast spread. You may need to negotiate wifi package additionally as compared to other hotels on Gall Face

A good property located in the center of the town just opposite to the beach. The rooms are good, but could have been more spacious. Very courteous staff, and provides good service. The hotel was in the renovation stage as they are getting more competition as Shangri La is bulding a 5* category property just next to Taj Samudra. Overall,... More

Taj Samudra by far the best hotel i have stayed in Colombo. Beautiful location overlooking mighty Indian ocean, amazing food menu (ample choice for vegetarians), good room service, nice and lively bar (pebbles) and above all a very friendly staff. The best thing was smooth check-in. A hotel staff was waiting for me at the lobby by the time i... More

Taj Samudra is a great property on all accounts. Very nice location, extra helpful staff, not very pricey, nice pool and gym. It is a very comfortable place to stay in. Taj always goes the extra mile to make you feel special and Samudra is no different.
