Though i'm a frequent guest of Taj in India , this is the 1st time i stayed in Taj colombo. Good place for resting and gourmet dishes. Chefs are really good and south Indian and local dishes are awesome. Great value for money.

I have stayed in several hotels in Colombo since 20 years of my travel to this lovely country. Taj Samundra is the best hotel in the city with the best location and good authentic restaurants.. Highly recommended for all business and holiday travellers.

Excellent food. A little pricey. Maybe because of the be VAT. their salami selection is out of this world. I could have stayed all day and stuffed myself on the Italian and Spanish salamis. Their pork was very good. A little dry. I would recommend anyone to try it.
