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.

The Management is Piss Poor

Location, room service and room service staff.

The service was TERRIBLE! I booked a room with twin beds, but they put us in a single with one bed. I called the front desk 8 (yes 8, that's not an exaggeration) before the resolved the situation. Even then, I had to demand they not put me on hold or say they would "call me back" because the 7 times I had called before they either disconnected the line and ended the call, or would say they'd give me a call right back and never did. And after all that, they finally switched me to the proper room, but when I checked out they had charged me an EXTRA $100 USD because they wanted charge me for an extra person, even though I had already paid for an double. I was furious. This is going to be my last time EVER staying at the Taj. And if anyone ever asks me if they should stay there, I will whole heartedly plead with them to not stay there. The only thing good about the hotel is the food, the wait staff and the view. The management is piss poor and th front desk is the worst I've EVER experienced in my 32 years of international travel.

Good, except for ffg. Although I confirmed booking for vehicle to fetch us from airport it did not arrive. Rates for vehicles are on the high side eg private vehicle charged 4700 from airport & hotel charged 7500 to airport.

This was our second time staying at Taj Colombo. The stags were really friendly and they upgraded our room as we are an existing customer. The breakfast was excellent. The room conditions were more than expected. I would recommend Taj Colombo for your honeymoon / family holiday.

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.
