Several of the reviews of this place are very unfair.

The first thing to understand about Ayuverdic spas in Sri Lanka is that they are everywhere. It is not like the western version of a spa, e.g. whale music and expensive hotels. Ayurvedic medicine is a staple in Sri Lanka, and many of the facilities look more like the local GPs. You should look for certification, which this one had.

We visited here in the morning and were able to book treatments for both of us at the end of the day.

The treatments were fantastic. I could have stayed in the steam bath all day it was so relaxing. Yes, the rooms don't have a/c, and the light flickered a bit, but for me, it added to the ambience. It reminded me I was somewhere real and not some soulless chain spa in the UK.

The ayurvedic spa is not a Swedish massage nor a sports massage its something very different. Once you get used to the smell of the oils (which reminded me of soy sauce), it is a thoroughly pleasing experience. Different cultures have different holistic therapies, and this is Sri Lanka's. Open your mind and enjoy.

Compared to the prices I have paid for regular massages in the UK, the value of 4,500Rs for 70 minutes was nothing.

We really enjoyed this massage. It's down to earth, basic and pure. The location is remote at 10 minute drive from Kandy center, but don't let this discourage you. Staff were friendly, modest and professional. We had the basic massage of 1 hour (Rs 6,000), additional options were explained well with extra time and costs associated. There were lockers where to store our stuff during the massage.

As some mentioned already, do not expect a luxury European spa, nor a full Ayurvedic treatment which takes weeks. Do expect an Ayurvedic full body massage, with 3 types of oil, either soft or rough as you prefer. It is indeed oily as this belongs to this type of massage.
The rooms were basic, lights flickered but soft background music made up for it.

All in all a very nice experience which I would recommend.

Okay, I have had ayurvedic treatments and massages before, and an incredible experience just a few weeks ago at Plantation Villa, Kalutara I know what it should be.

This was horrible. She was way to rough and deep- NOT Ayurvedic style at all. When I told her she was hurting me she actually laughed! She was not at all mindful. She was breathing really hard and fast during the massage, saying hard was good. It's not supposed to be like that.

Just don't go.They are not professional at all. It's a tourist catcher.
The risponsible went into the room whereas my friend and I were almost naked (we are 2 women).
There was no music and lot of men were talking very loud and laugh during the hour of massage. It was not nor peacful not relaxing at all.
The masseuses were fast and gestures were not as good as usual ayurvedic massages.
Finaly, we asked the risponsible for a commercial gesture but we did nothing and was not friendly at all.
Run away from this place!

DO NOT GO HERE. It is filthy, unprofessional and the most hideous treatment ever. It is two days later and the stinking black oil and stench won't leave my hair. I've shampooed 7 times.
The treatment room is dirty and it costs a fortune. Disgusting.

Instead of paying a higher price for the hotel spa treatment, our driver recommended this "great" local massage spot. Feeling adventurous we thought why not give it a try. We opted for a couples massage which costed us 3500 LKR each, even though our driver claimed that it wouldn't cost more than 3000 LKR.

The horror began when we were escorted to the dreadful treatment room, it honestly looked like a torture chamber, nothing to remind you that this is a relaxation place. Our two beds were separated by a dirty hospital curtain, so it did not even feel like a couples massage.

We were both told to get completely naked, no dressing gown and comfy slippers, or even a towel provided. Having his first massage experience and not knowing any better, my poor husband actually took everything off and as a result got his private parts invaded during the massage on multiple occasions.

The massage starts with the masseuse wrapping you in a questionable greasy sheet, pouring what seemed to be engine oil all over your head for a head massage. I have an issue with people touching my hair, so was lucky enough to escape this procedure. I think husband still has oil in his ears.

The next step was a full body massage. The aim of this procedure is to cover every inch of the customer's body in oil with frantic rubbing movements. There was no technique to it what so ever. My elderly masseuse was constantly scratching me with her nails and coughing on me, presumably for a better experience.

The massage was followed by a steam bath which is basically a wooden coffin with log fire underneath. At least they didn't touch you for 10 mins.

At the end of it, you are wiped with a towel. Even though there is a shower in the room, we were not allowed to use it.

To top it off they expected a tip! If this was a European country with an excellent customer service, I would have asked for a full refund.

This is honestly the worst experience I have ever had in my life. Avoid at all costs.

This place is fantastic for a herbal treatment. The masseuses are so friendly and they know what they are doing. We payed 3500 lkr for 70 min. The treatment is finalized with 10 min in a wooden casket with steam. A great experience.

Where to start...the dimly lit, curtained "rooms" have slick wet tile floors, hard massage beds and no explanation of the treatment.

The massage it's self was the rubbing of what felt like a gallon of unnamed oil all over your body then you got to bake in a steam coffin for 10mins....truly underwhelming and not relaxing.

The staff was very nice but that didn't make up for lack of training or atmosphere.

Skip this place and try one of the many other ayurveda spas in the area.

After a long trekking day, we were quite happy about this Ayurvedic center. We took the 1h10min package. We already took a massage in South India and this one was great as well. The staff is professional, the massage is well executed and the place is clean.

We were taken here by our driver. They charged us 3500 RS each for the "package". All the workers there did not look professional and were not wearing professional clothes, they just wore shirts and jeans. We were taken to a room upstairs, the room was dirty with mold and mosquito everywhere. The bed looked dirty with oil stains on it. We were asked to take off all our clothes and then we were given a smelly cloth to cover ourselves. The massage was the worst we have ever had, it wasn't even a massage. The "masseur" just kept pouring oil on me and simply rubbing it and after a while he removed the cloth until I was totally naked on the bed and he even touched me in sensitive areas. It was very uncomfortable that I had to ask him several times to cover me up. The oil had a very bad smell, it was unbearable, and also his hands smelt very bad. After half an hour, it just didn't get any better, so I told him that's enough I'm leaving, he said why you still have to do the steam bath, I just told him no I won't do it. The whole place in not hygienic. He gave me a piece of soap and a dirty towel so that I can take take shower. The shower was dirty as well. I just couldn't see the minute I arrived at the hotel to take a proper shower. This was definitely the worst experience ever. Just don't go there and save your money and time.
