  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

We needed to check in early due to our flight arriving into Colombo and they were very accommodating and were able to give us a room. The Taj is in a great position just opposite the beach were you can walk along the foreshore at night and look at all the food sellers. Highly recommend.

    The BEST thing about this hotel is its staff. From security, bell boy, front desk to housekeeping. Pretty much everyone was amazing. They genuinely care for their guests. I stayed there for 2 nights (October 23rd and 24th - 2019). During check in they upgraded my room to a Suite. (I didnt ask for it) Then the Front Desk officer and the bell boy accompanied me to my Suite and showed all the amenities. Next day morning it was raining heavily. I had a lot of places to visit and people to see. I had only my dress shoes with me. I ddint want to ruin my shoes. I tried to buy a pair of sandals/slippers from the shops in the lobby. They were not open at that time. I had to leave early. I called the concierge. They arranged a pair of sandals for me withing 10 minutes. There are so many dining options within the hotel. Room was wonderful
