About Taj Samudra Colombo


The Taj is known world-wide for prestige, and the Taj Samudra Colombo upholds the brand’s reputation in one of the best spots in Colombo. 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.

One of the best in Sri Lanka
The best hotel we stayed in during our trip to Sri Lanka. The food is excellent and the staff eager to help. The overall quality of this hotel is not as good as in Taj hotels in India, but compared to the alternatives in Colombo the place is first rate, and I would happily stay there again. We were also delighted to be given a free upgrade to a three-room suite.

Amazing and beyond our expectations
We stayed at Taj Samudra numerous times in years past, visiting a couple of days to a week each time. We made great memories with our small children at that time. Now that they are mostly grown, my wife and I were alone for a few days. We wanted to go someplace special to have some quiet time together. We decided to return to Taj for old time's sake. Our experience was amazing. We were so impressed with the staff, they genuinely wanted to help with even the smallest need. Mr. Yaseetha, of the hotel reception, was the best. He greeted us and treated us so nicely. He made us feel very welcome to return and thanked us for choosing Taj. The staff all seemed so glad that we came. We loved the many upgrades they have done to the place and it demonstrates a commitment to excellence we have seen in Taj properties throughout south Asia. Our travels have brought us to Taj family properties in Sri Lanka, India and the Maldives. As always, tastefully decorated, professionally staffed and delectably stocked. Highlights were: flowers in room, quality coffee in the Club Lounge and the juice selections at breakfast. We will not soon forget your kindness and excellence. Keep up the good work team Taj!

Much better than Galle Face Hotel (except the latter is direct by the sea, but not possible to swim anyway), very attentive and helpful staff, rooms have balconies (not att Galle Face) and small bathtubs (not at Galle Face), but it is annoying with all crows everywhere in Colombo.
