Reviewed yesterday NEW

The last few times we visited Sri Lanka we stayed at the Taj Samudra. This Hotel is very well located and has Beach Views. The service in general wss excellent. We found the reception staff have really picked up their game judging by their improved performance. The Food is more inclined to the Indian Palette.

The hotel sits in a big garden and offers sweeping views over the sea or city center. The lobby is very inviting and luxurious (but really cold), the rooms are fine but a little run down (especially the bathroom), creating a slight disappointment when settling in and considering the steep rates. The bed is comfortable, the aircon can be adjusted...

The food and service was excellent and we enjoyed the evening thoroughly. It was value for money. The portions were substantial, suggestions well thought out. Our family agreed that we would dine here unhesitatingly again and again and wish the restaurant and hotel much success.

This hotel has one of the best views over Galle Face Green and the sea. Although there is a busy road in between, it's not difficult to cross it safely and take a morning or evening stroll. The management and staff could not have been more charming or more helpful, from the senior manager to the breakfast chef who was...

We are a family of 6 who have travelled from Australia to Sri Lanka. We are unaccustomed to the rich spices the country has to offer but this food was very flavorsome. The service was outstanding. Well worth a visit.
