Approximately 1 hour from the airport the Taj is a great starting point to a Sri Lankan holiday.
It's position opposite Galle Face Green and the Galle Face Hotel allow fantastic views and 3min walk for sunset cocktails.
A 5 star in Sri Lanka is the equivalent of a UK 4 star. The service cannot be faulted and the staff are available and friendly. The rooms are dated to what you would expect but clean, a good bed and sky TV.
The buffet selection for breakfast is vast and caters for all tastes. There are various restaurants to choose from for dinner, we had the buffet on arriving and although a hot intro to Sri Lankan curries, a great selection.
Definitely would recommend this hotel or anyone passage though Colombo on arriving in the country.
