They gave me a big upgrade due to this . Special mention to chef Dhayalan who is awesome when it comes to making some excellent South Indian breakfast . The best hotel in Colombo . Food in golden dragon and navratna is good too

Very good hotel. Ideally located. Hotel staff go the extra mile to make sure your stay is comfortable. Rooms are very spacious. Breakfast very good. Chef is very friendly. Booked directly through the hotel and was offered a very good rate and service.

Traditional Taj hospitality in full form at this Colombo property. Our room had the most gorgeous view of the sea & the bathroom was a delight. Breakfast fit for a king. Do try the hoppers and other southern delights. Crab Factory is THE only place to go to for crab and Sri Lankan food in Colombo. Ministry of Crab with all its hype is a poor second. The cooking classes by the chef were meticulous planned and executed. Sri Lankan’s are a lovely people combine this with the Taj philosophy and you have a winner!

My wife and I stayed at the Taj Colombo for 4 nights and I must say the experience is like no other- even tho we are frequent travellers to all parts of the globe From the moment we entered- we were greeted by NAMANTHI who worked so hard to upgrade us to a club room at no extra cost where our Taj experience began We were welcomed there by SUNIL the floor manager who is such a polite and helpful man who would do anything to make you comfortable. Taj has some top class restaurants like the Crab Factory which serves fresh crab and other seafood made to your taste. Chef NASHANTA along with the manager NUZAIM and Stewart MANJUKA take a special interest in their guests spending quality time with each customer. The Golden Dragon is another worthwhile experience - where Chef THARINDU will cook you a personalised meal after figuring out your taste. The evening happy hour at the club lounge is also made personal with SANJEEWA the manager making you special cocktails and chatting about your days events. The F&B manager Mr J AHMED who you would meet at all these restaurants works behind the scenes to ensure you are being looked after. All in all a magical experience as the service at the Taj is absolutely incredible. I would have loved to have a piano player at the lobby bar to complete the magic of this place Well done to all the staff at Taj Samudra I would highly recommend this for an anniversary pamper Jude and Althea Wright Melbourne Australia

Stayed for 5 nights, the welcome was typical Taj, very friendly & efficient. The lobby is grand and majestic. We were upgraded to a Suite on the 3rd floor overlooking the ocean, the view was amazing. The room also had a balcony overlooking the sea.The room was newly renovated, was clean and spacious. There is a pool, jacuzzi, steam room and a gym. Some parts of the hotel show its age but the sheer magnificence building does manage to come through. The food is pretty decent, had the buffet couple of days and breakfast is quite a spread.The biggest usp of any Taj is the hospitality, every staff we met was friendly polite and helpful. However, special mention to the sous chef Dayalan for the constant attention everyday, making sure we got steaming hot idlis or dosas at table even before we could ask. Also, the restaurant manager Mr Nilanka for the help when my son was unwell & needed mild food. These are experiences that make the stay memorable. There was one spot of bother, the renovation work meant that sometimes we had to put up with annoying noise but the rest of the hotel and staff made up for this.

I had great opportunity to enjoy fabulous food at Pebbles specially Sandwich and pizza. And also people who were there was brilliant. Good set of people. They are very kind and support. Appriciate there kind service. I Wish Pebbles manager and the team. Superb guys keep it up. Dinuwan Peiris

First of all like to thank Mr. Sarabjeet Singh - General Manager for accommodating us. There were a list of amazing People in the property, Concierge Haneef & Chef Pankaj were amazing at their respective jobs. The entire team of Coffee Shop & Housekeeping were friendly and helpful. The hotel has an amazing location which overlooks the Galle Face Beach.. Great variety of food, which looks and tastes great. Did not got a chance to visit the pool however it too looked amazing. The valet team, the doorman and the bell desk will assist you with a smile. Thank you all and keep up the great work!!!

This is one the top rated hotels in Colombo on the sea-side. The entrance and lobby areas are grand and so are rooms and room services. The hotel is also concerned about the global issues and they celebrate Earth day on 24th March by dimming or switching off the lights. A good gesture for a commercial organization.
