Also within walking distance is Galle Face Green, a grassy promenade right by the water’s edge. Enveloping guests in pure Indian opulence, this property represents upscale accommodation at an affordable price. Common areas are rich in detail and feature grand open spaces worthy of the Taj moniker, while guest rooms reflect a bright, modern aesthetic with quality finishes. Positioned on 12 acres of meticulously-kept lawns, the Taj Samudra Colombo treats guests to luxurious, unspoiled views over the Indian Ocean with the beach only five minutes away on foot.

Nice hotel, beach front.

Food, clean and good location in Colombo
I stayed at Taj Samudra for three nights, the room was ok, the hotel is old fashion but classic. Hotel staffs were not friendly as expected.

City Retreat

Staff, Swimming Pool, location
Traveling with children around Sri Lanka, the comfort, space and Pool of the Taj was the perfect way to recharge while spending a few days in the wonderful, but hot and busy, city of Colombo.

Fabulous hotel

Location, Hotel standard and the Staff
I loved staying here. What a beautiful hotel!! The ocean facing club room we had was amazing! The staff were absolutely lovely...every single one!! I have to mention the Lattice restaurant which serves a great breakfast but also the staff Mr Prasanna, Dilhara and Rish, They were great. In particular, DIlhara..he looked after us so well!! So friendly and helpful. I would definitely return here and would hope to see the same people.

Expensive small Room

Location, Image, nice staff support,,
The hotel location, hospitality and cleanliness are all good, what shocked me to see is the Room size and attached Toilet, It's so small you can't expect it from even a 2 * hotel,, hardly any place inside room and toilet.

the breakfast was excellent. the housekeeping staff were courtious. .
While the stay was satisfactory, at the time of checking in and check out it took a long time. I had indicated some special requests in the Agoda website after my bookings and when inquired about the same while checking in, they said they are not aware as it is not in there website!! this was a surprise as i thought the special request indicated in Agoda goes to the respective hotel as well. They did not even try or bother to accommodate the requests. regards, kc

one of the best in Colombo

beach, food, service
not bad at all, it is one of the few good hotels in Colombo, you better stay on the 4th floor, it is recently renovated. you won't tolerate the smell in the other floors
