Great people but weak security processes
We had a great time at your wonderful property. We arrived very early on 19th April and your staff was extremely helpful in checking us in. Our 10 yo daughter loved the squash court, the pool and the beautiful lawns. We were preparing for check out on April 21, when the fateful event happened in the city. We now know that it was both good fortune and your alert staff that avoided an attack at the Taj Samudra that morning. We also truly appreciate how your concierge desk helped arrange for a cab to the airport for us with a smile, during this chaotic period. Taj is a great brand and part of an excellent firm. We however would have expected a large responsible organisation like yours to follow a standard security protocol as a company, even if the city doesn't demand it. I hope you are able to consider this suggestion, not just for your properties in Colombo but across the globe. It would definitely help us choose Taj again in the future.

Good location!
A very low floor room without much sea view as I requested. Very expensive hotel shuttle. Japanese restaurant OK, but not the salad.
