The all you can eat sushi was very delicious. All the dishes were very well presented and had very unique dishes to choose from such as the date and cresmcheese maki. They also had a fruity marki with mangoes and strawberries, my 6 yearold daughter ordered a 2nd round of those. Mr villa and chef sudesh were very hospitable and very friendly and provided excellent service alongside the other staff members. We will definitely be visiting again.

Everyone at this hotel was extremely accommodating, professional and lovely overall. Methmi at the front office and Onitha was beyond gracious and inviting. They are two very hard working ladies. Only complaint is there are not enough Sri Lankan food options at the bfast and lunch buffets, after all that is one of the main attractions of this beautiful country and should be at the plenty. Thank you and I will be coming back!

A signature warm Taj experience. The people and the amenities at Taj Samudra are top notch. The Taj club lounge has impeccable staff who are courteous as well as proactive in arranging anything needed. Haneef and Chrish at the Concierge were extremely helpful too.
