Good hotel, modern rooms. Looks better than the photos you see online. Service at reception was very good, but in restaurants was very poor, they could do with some re-training (either that or they need to realize they're there to serve customers).

After 21 flight hours plus a 3 hour airport wait in between flights we arrived in Colombo in the middle of the night. Our hotel driver was waiting for us as we stepped out of the baggage claim area and after a 40 minute drive, we arrived at Taj Samudra. Such a surprise! The lobby is big, open and inviting....

Reviewed 4 May 2016

Good experience, but not at par with Indian taj quality. Front desk staffs were lost sometimes to handle guest. I had been allocated a room which is occupied already. Embarrassing... Buffet spread was awesome both dinner and breakfast. Room service was prompt. Rooms quality doesn't showcase 5star quality. Overall average experience in a good old property.
