    One of the best massages I ever had!
    Sampath gives the best massages! He is highly professional and a really lovely person. He came all the way to Weligama and also Hikkaduwa to give massages for a really fair price. I cannot recommend him enough! For whoever is somewhere close in the area, go for it! You won't regret it and feel amazing afterwards!

    Excellent relaxing massage
    Sampath is amazing. He came to our beach villa one day and gave each my husband and I a one-hour massage as we listened to crashing waves in the distance. We enjoyed it so much, we asked if he could come the following day, which he did, and our only regret is we called him towards the end of our vacation and not at the start! Not only does Sampath have great technique, he is also very professional and a really nice guy. We look forward to seeing him again upon our next visit to Sri Lanka!

    This massage wil reset you, such an enegiser!
    After a long day with two flights coming in from Europe a treatment from Sampath was the answer. All Stiffness and soreness disappeared. Sampath has a lot of knowledge and after the treatment all fatigue dissapeared. Highly highly recommended!

    Amazing massage!
    Went to this place after I saw the recommendations and really happy I did. Sampath is a very professional masseurs and what a great setting - in the Hotel Deco! He's fantastic and legit - I had the 80min deep tissue and it was perfect. Highly recommended :)

    Relaxing massage
    Sampah De Silva gave both my wife and I a great massage. We has 80 minute massage each, sorted out all the travel stiffness. Recommend for a great massage while in Galle Fort

    I had the most amazing massage of my life. My adult son also found it excellent
    This is a strong massage and I also had a body scrub. He found knots and tension and I felt the muscles loosening. Weeks later I just wish I could find someone similar I the UK. This is not a gentle cosmetic massage but a real therapeutic one and I really re voted it . For me it was a great ending to a perfect holiday.

    Just about the best ever!
    Me and my partner booked in for a double massage - he has Chamith & I had Sampath - we truly felt that both gave the best massage we have had to date, and we're boyz that like a good Massage everywhere we go! The room was comfortable, cool and smelt wonderful. nWe will probably have to book if you're wanting the prime time but the first time we had to wait 1/2 hour, second time we got the time we needed. Gentle, kind and professional - I would highly recommend this service.

    Super massage
    Had a fab deep tissue massage and reflexology with Sampath today- really wonderful! He just understands bodies and found all my many spots instantly with no prompt. Brilliant! Such a gentleman too.

    Best massage ever
    My back was very sore and stiff so I got the deep tissue massage. It was great and probably the best massage I ever had, for a reasonable price. I felt so relaxed afterwards. I wanted to get an other massage the next day but unfortunately it didn’t work out because they were too busy. I can’t recommend it enough! It’s the best place to go for a professional massage!

Had a wonderful reflexology yesterday. One of the best I have ha. The lovely therapist knows exactly what he is doing. Trust me! Am super fussy, have had reflexology in Canada, China, Thailand, Cambodia etc etc and this session was probably second best. I have not had that many great massages in Sri Lanka to be honest. He really deserves the best review. ( also always sceptical on reading reviews as wondering how many are genuine )

I really enjoyed a massage here towards the end of my trip, and I'm glad I waited. I'd seen a couple of reviews of different places but it was important to me that the masseuse knew his stuff and wasn't just going through the tourist trap motions.

I am used to gentle aromatherapy massages and this is a little more intense which brought a fantastic feeling of calm - he checked that the pressure was appropriate before starting which is good. Without mentioning it he noticed that I have tight calves (from walking up Adams Peak!) and tense shoulders, all which he worked through. The surroundings are lovely too - the therapy room is inside an impressive Art Deco building where you can also enjoy a post-massage cocktail.

80 mins is pure indulgence - I want to go back tomorrow!

I have had 2 massages with Sampath De Silva in the last 3 days at the hotel in which I am staying. He is courteous, knowledgable and very kind. His massages were simply wonderful - made even better by the fact that I was beside the crashing waves of the sea in the warm air. I had deep muscle massages which had an overall relaxing and therapeutic effect whilst they also worked to relieve a tight and painful muscle that I had in my neck.
I would highly recommend Sampath as your therapist. His massage was a perfect end to a perfect holiday in Sri Lanka.
