I've been living in Asia for 3 years and visited many countries where massages are part of the culture. I thought the Ayurvedic massages in Sri Lanka would be part of the experience. We had a good massage in Kandy (traditional Ayurvedic massage) and we...More

What sounded like a decent deal (2500 lkr for a 45 min massage) turned out to be a waste of time, money (and quite likely health). Out of the 45 min, the effective massaging time was less than half as the massagist (who was also...More

I feel stupid that we went there although it has such bad reviews. It's not a massage. Maximum body rub with oil. They promise one hour and 15 minutes. They finished after less than an hour. 3,000 rupees wasted.
