As expected from the Taj, we had a wonderful stay here too. We stayed here for two days to celebrate a birthday. If you have a Superior room booking, ask for Room 231. While the approach isn't great, the balcony is large and the room is lovely. We have to commend Mahendran at the Front Desk for organizing a wonderful... More

Stayed here 3 nights. Almost everything you would expect really, for this class and price range. A few minor quibbles include the lack of free wifi (really, in a 5 star hotel?), not quite enough sun loungers, and the size and layout of the hotel meaning a lengthy walk to the hotel pool and (private) beach. Apart from that, a... More

We stayed here as a family of four for 1 night only. We had booked 2 rooms but on arrival booking for only 1 had been received. However rooms were quickly allocated and we were upgraded to a suite. Rooms were lovely, nicely equipped, well maintained, with nice sea view. The suite was fabulous, fantastic balconies with furniture and bed.... More

The Taj hotel made our 4 day stay very memorable providing us with the best possible service. The staff were very accommodating and helpful ensuring that all our requests were adhered to. Being vegetarians finding appropriate food is difficult but the Taj chef was able to satisfy us by making the various foods we recommended. The hotel also included a... More

A wonderful hotel where staff do their utmost to make your staying pleasant. Wonderful location and fabulous pool. Food was very good, only a tiny complain was the fruit juices at breakfast were not fresh but out of a box, a bit disappointed for a 5 star hotel.

We spent 4 days at this hotel. The service is really very good and the staff involved really friendly. Breakfast and dinner buffet really good, if you need anything more just ask and they did their best level. Because been veg is bit hard, so we ask if they can label which is eggless and they did it and some... More

The service is good and the people very nice but for a five star hotel to not have free wifi is just appalling. Clean and nice but slightly ostentatious with a decent buffet at breakfast. The average selection of T.v channels as seen in most other Sri Lankan hotels although all food is priced at extortionate prices. Juices at breakfast... More

Shack restaurant was amazing. Fresh caught fish cooked how you want. Newly renovated rooms with great ac. Pain that you have to pay for the wifi but is often the way with nice hotels. Buffet was so so. Breakfast was great but dinner was no more than average. Personally not a big fan of buffets anyway. Beach was great but... More
