One of the best shiatsu massages I've had - including in Japan. Lovely welcoming staff, spotlessly clean. I'm hoping to go again.

Three of us went for 90 minute massages and all thought that the massages were among the best we ever had. The people are lovely and the facility pleasant. A real value at 4000LKR. Can’t recommend highly enough.
