Highly recommended for its superb Indian food (Chef Chauhan was amazing) and views from its ocean facing rooms. The National Day Parade below the hotel was an amazing and unplanned surprise. Plus the usual Taj experience, comfort and luxury. See if you can stay on the refurbished 3rd floor.

Stayed: February 2016, travelled with family

The experience was decent. It is a good hotel with excellent food joints. The hotel has a rich culture and heritage and it is not like a routine hotel. The staff is friendly and courteous. Rooms are good and though Housekeeping needs a revamp.

The room was comfortable and spacious with modern appliances. Enjoyed the spectacular view of the ocean (from the room). Simply the best club rooms in the City without any exaggeration. Service was personalized and excellent! Food was delicious! Really enjoyed every bit of our stay at Taj Samudra.

Hotel is quite old but very nice. Little difficult to find parking inside as the hotel is in heart of Colombo. The windows of the rooms are quite old vibrating if there are functions around. Management do not listen to those concerns. Food spread and options are really great...

Every thing was fantastic. For the price paid, I found the room a little bit small. The location is terrific (ocean view) and the people is very friendly. Breakfast is absolutely gorgeous. I recommend the hotel.
