Great hotel, breakfast was fantastic. The ocean view rooms were delightful, and if you're lucky you might be upgraded for free! Only catch is to be aware of local taxes that can increase the price of the room significantly more than what may be advertised on websites.

We been associated with The Taj since 1974 and Its always feels at Home at any of the properties of The Taj. We feel a part of The Taj Family. The Dining experience at The Taj Samudra is really good & the Galle Face location is like the Icing on the cake .Perfect.

Taj is a beautiful, colonial style hotel with excellent customer service. The hotel has lovely gardens and pool to relax in. It has several different restaurants where you can dine and the quality of food excellent. Also It's close to the beach where you can safely stroll even at night. Rooms are spacious and clean. All in all a very comfortable stay.

Room Tip: Select an ocean view room!
