Colombo, the largest city of Sri Lanka wears many hats with ease. It is the financial centre of the island as well as a popular tourist destination. Portuguese, Dutch, British, Buddhist, Hindu, Islamic, Indian and Contemporary influences are evident in Colombo’s architecture, which varies from towering skyscrapers to historic buildings dating back as far as the 1700’s. One of the architectural jewels of Colombo, Taj Samudra, faces the historic Galle Face Green and offers mesmerising views of the vibrant and charming city of Colombo.
The Taj Samudra has 300 spacious rooms and suites surrounded by 11 acres of impeccably landscaped gardens. Bright and airy, the rooms are elegant due to timeless wood furnishings and plush soothing areas.
