I am a member at TAJ group of Hotels and stayed in Samudra third time for 4 consecutive nights from 21st august to 25th august 2014. Entire stay at the Renovated Club Floor was good though the smell of newly painted walls was a bit painful. The Front office manager Mr.Asiri Silva was very helpful and committed to serve. But...

We are regulars at Taj Samudra. My family and I often visit Lattitude but have recently taken a liking to Pebbles (the coffee shop/bar). Pebbles is a calm, peaceful and quiet spot to hang out, enjoy a cup of coffee or to enjoy a great snack. Both of the managers are kind and helpful. We visit the place every now... More

Taj Samudra is a sea facing property, the best part is when ever you want you can cross the road and relax in the beach. Though the hotel itself is a bit old, but decently maintained. Friendly staff, courteousness and excellent breakfast spread is a big positive. Apart from beach, you can walk around or take a local auto rickshaw... More

The Taj Hotel chain has always had an excellent reputation for service but this is a prime example of this. There are some excellent Hotels in Colombo such as the Cinanmon Grand ( very good) the Hilton ( excellent) but this has to be the premier place.
