Massage is done by blind boys and they are far better than the normal masseuses! Money goes to a worthy cause and the massage is value for money! Staff is very friendly. The place is easy to find. I so far have only tried the full body and will be trying the rest very soon

i went to that massage center on Aug month. Place was very nice and quiet. Massage provided by young boys (Blind boys), However they are very expert in massage. So i will decide, whenever i will come to Sri lanka plan to go there.

Extremely nice staff, no problems to leave the luggage after check out. Clean, spacious rooms, hot water, pretty close to the city center. Also close to some restaurants and shopping mall. Very nice and quiet neighbourhood. The place I would definitely recommend.

After 5 weeks volunteering in Sri Lanka I stayed at the Thusare house and spa before catching my flight the next day. Upon arrival a male hotel worker met us (two 21 year old volunteers) from our tuk tuk. He picked up my red handbag which I immediately was aware of so I took it off him, and placed it... More

The guesthouse was difficult for the taxi driver to find, as it is off the main road but the address makes it look like it's on the main road. Once you know where it is, it's easy to get to, but the first time was challenging. The location is convenient for visiting the National Museum, Gangaramaya Temple, and the Green... More

Service was well extended to us in our stay at Thusare. On the first night we were welcomed by Manager Shomi who talked to us about our time in Sri Lanka and gave us good ideas on places to visit as we had not completely planned our itinerary. Shomi even drove us to a recommended Sri Lankan restaurant which was... More

I'm really glad that we found this guest house in Sri Lanka that's just perfect for us! Firstly, its location is excellent because it's near the parks, shops and restaurants. Also, Mr. Shomi, the manager of the guest house, is really accommodating and helpful! He even drove us to a nice Sri Lankan restaurant on our first night there and... More

The room was average. There was a strange sound when I would let warm water flow, and we had some problems with current, but the owner was nice and he managed to make it work verry quickly. Also there was a big and very nice terrace, I loved drinking coffee there. Everyone was recommending that Shiatsu massage, so I tried... More

We only stayed one night here so couldn't tell you convenience of the location and what the area was like. However, we had a very large, clean room which was nicely furnished and had a pretty balcony outside. I think it only has 3 rooms so it's a quiet place. We did enjoy a very good massage by the blind... More
