Taj samudra can be recommended as one of the best 5 star hotels in Sri Lanka. The city view as well as the sea view from the hotel rooms were marvellous. The staff from top to bottom were very friendly and helpful and that made our stay at the hotel memorable. Mrs. Niranjali Weerasekara helped me from the time I made the booking. She reserved for me a spacious room with the city view and guided me in every way. She was very kind and she was ready to provide assistance at any time. Mr. Anura the manager at Navaratna Indian restaurant was very friendly and he provided us an excellent service. The food was excellent. The buffet dinner, breakfast and lunch was excellent with a wide spread at Pebbles restaurant. The management and the staff at pebbles resturant specially Mr. Sumedha, Mr. Charitha, Mr. Ranaraja, Mr. Atauda, Mr. Amila, Mr. Harsha, chef Nilusha and chef Thilanga provided us an excellent service. I really enjoyed the luxury stay at Taj samudra and I invite you all to come to Taj samudra in Sri Lanka and enjoy all the five star comforts for an affordable price in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere.
