    Luxurious five star hotel”

    This was my second time at Taj Samudra, first time with my family. As always, Taj hotels and their hospitality is a reminder of what a true five star hotel should be. Simply superb hotel, the rooms, food at their restaurants and a very safe and secure hotel even when the situation outside in Colombo was tense

    A memorable stay at Taj Samudra”

    It was our 35th Wedding Anniversay. The Staff picked up the date from the form that i was given to fill and surprised us with cake, flowers and a gift. It was very heartwarming and will remember this visit to Sri Lanka and would definately recommend Taj Samudra. It is a beautiful hotel, friendly staff, food is good and cleanliness is excellent.

    My sister and I stayed for one night and we were not disappointed. We had stayed here last year and decided to come back as we really enjoyed our stay. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a club room and the check in was really quick and efficient. I wish I could remember the name of the lovely man who checked us in...he was a great help and very courteous. All the staff actually were very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend anyone travelling to Colombo to stay here at Taj Samudra.

    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!

    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.

    We were visiting Sri Lanka for the first time and chose to stay at the Taj Samudra because of its good reputation. While the service may be a bit rough around the edges (not all levels of staff were warm, helpful and professional), we were overall satisfied.

    It was a pleasure to stay here. The staff are it's best feature, always kind, professional and efficient. The fitness center is one of the best I've seen in a hotel and just had to be used if you stay. The view from the sea view rooms is quite incredible as you see the sun set over the sea. All round highly recommended. Many thanks in particular to the gym staff for helping me with different machines and exercises.

    The staff cannot do enough for you and the concierge service was excellent in helping with our onward travel arrangements. Great service from the staff in the breakfast room and a massive choice. Also, it's a great idea that the executive Chef takes your food order in the Indian restaurant, because you get the food exactly how you like it and it was a fantastic meal and great wine ! ... lovely stay, just too short !
