“Waah Taj - Super :)”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Was always keen on staying in a taj hotel sometime & our one day stay in colombo made it possible with Taj Samudra :-)

Below are some Attractions:
1. Great location
2. Great view from the room, you can get a nice view of the beach which is exactly opp. the hotel :-)
3. Beautiful lobby & restaurant.. and the rooms are also very nice
4. Nice band singing & playing music at dinner time
5. Very nice breakfast with good vegeterian / indian food options (i actually loved the breakfast more than the dinner.. truly super :-) ..)
6. Good restaurant service

Overall a very pleasant stay

Stayed February 2013, traveled as a couple

Located 1 Km from the King's fort, Taj Samudra Colombo is a landmark by itself. We visited it during the winter (which hardly makes a difference to the temperatures there). The only hotel in the area with a beautifully lit disco, the Taj has the signature style in its rooms, lobby and service. The breakfast is good and would definitely recommend it. A must visit during a Lanka trip.

The Hotel is a landmark in Colombo, located on Galle Face Road, which is the main beach road of Colombo. The breakfast in the morning, is quite good. Great spread of both international and Sri Lankan food with lots of hot counters for omelettes, pasta, hoppers, dosa, pancakes etc. The service was excellent. Would recommend to be a must visit place if you are short of time in Sri lanka..!!!

Had a pleasant stay at Taj Samudra recently. The food was excellent, location was terrific.. opposite to the beach.. staff was pleasant...nothing more you could ask for. This was under renovation so you had to hear the occasional drilling noises.. Could understand that the same would be complete by Nov 2013 and look forward to coming back here...
