Experience luxury in a picturesque setting

From the ornate decorative features of its lobby, through to your room's designer bathroom, and the authentic Jiva Spa; the hotel oozes sophistication and contemporary luxury.

If you want to alternate between the sparkling pool and something a little more active, then there are activities and excursions available too.

It is really easy to get into town from this hotel. Tuk tuk taxis are close to the front gate so it couldn't be easier grabbing one for a unique way to get around.

10 days in Sri Lanka

Istanbul, Turkey

Well selected location. Nice rooms Good service. Nice bar and restaurant with selective food. However reception is not well aware of services provided by the hotel. I.e they can't supply spa center booklet. As the don't have one ! And then were not very friendly in answering related questions. Otherwise enjoyable stay.

Stunning - Shame about the Cyclone!!!

My Twin and I stayed at the Taj between 27th November to 4th December 2017. We wanted to say thank you for the hospitality, especially to Dinesh in the Palm and Amila who were keen to ensure we had everything we wanted. They were both very kind and extremely helpful and their generosity is commendable. The chaps by the pool work very hard too and wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone at the Taj who made our stay enjoyable.. Shame about the weather.. Im sure its nice and sunny everyday now that we have returned home to the cold. So a special thank you Dinesh and Amila and to the team. Many thanks and regards Miss Kal Tailor😃
