Nice if you like some hands on your back. But these ladies have the fingers of tea pluckers and don't know anything of ayurveda nor give advise and even don't speak a word English.

We were recomend by our guesthouse to go here. Worst place ever. Ive been on an Ayurveda center in India so I know how it is supposed to be. These people arent certified Ayurveda specialists. They are only here to steal your money. 2 treatments at 6000 rupees is extremely expensive when the one massaging you doesnt have a clue... More

We would like to recommend this place for a restful foot massage after the walk to Adam's Peak and Ella Gap. The price was very reasonable at £7.50 each for half an hour and the surroundings were calm.

I paid for a full body massage but i had to stop before the end. I had the feeling this was the first time this lady had ever massage someone. I've been to different massage center and i can tell for sure, she had no idea what to do with her fingers. I almost burst into laugh because it was... More

I was offered a head, face, full body and foot massage for 2000 Sri Lankan Rupees. The massage which lasted about an hour, was one of the worst I have ever had. It was being done so quickly that my body was moving all the time. The same "technique" which was like a pincer type action with the hands was... More

This was the worst massage I ever had. Nobody there knows how to massage. My wife felt even violated. Do not go there! Some young people want to earn quick money.

I'll start by putting his disclaimer out there - this was my first Ayurvedic massage. However, I've had massages all over the world from Thailand to Bali and Mexico and Korea and there are some things that are just not appropriate that happened when i got a full body massage from Suwa Pradeepa. First I had a male masseuse. While... More

I was going there because of the three reviews on tripadvisor and didnt like the experience. I had a one hour full body treatment. She was only using one hand most of the time and talking to the guy at the front. The atmosphere was not relaxing at all. I would not recommend it.

I had a 30 min head, shoulder and back massage. I asked for medium pressure as it was my first Sri Lanka massage and probably should have gone for firm. Different technique to what you find in Europe or South East Asia but a good relaxing experience. I'd probably go back and try a full body. Initially they said 3000/hr... More

We have experienced our first Ayurveda complete treatment, it lasted for 2 hours, head massage, full body massage, foot massage, face cream, herbal steam bath, interesting shiro dahara, was worth undertaking. Staff is friendly and offers tasty tea.
