    Blissful massages
    I did a 90 minute and 60 minute massage two days in a row. Both were incredibly relaxing, effective, professional, and skilled. The second day I was running a bit late, so the owner met me in his tuktuk to ensure I could get my full experience. As someone else here wrote - they treat guests very well.

    Amazing ayurvedic massage!
    Bentota Ayurveda Center is the best place you can go for a real ayurvedic massage! We were in the couple room and Shasimi and Madusanka took care of us with their gifted hands. The overall experience was excellent: from the communication with Lakmal to the tuk tuk pick up and the tour around after the massage. I totally recommend this place from A to Z!

    Most relaxing Ayurveda massage in Bentota
    One of the best experience we had while we stayed at Bentota. Very close to the beautiful Bentota railway station is this amazing place with amazing people. We took the 3hrs package which had massage from head to toe along with inhalation and a face pack. Once of the most relaxing experience ever it was. Anushika did the service for me and she had some powers in her hands, I dozed off multiple times during the session it was that relaxing. Madushank did the service for my husband and he too did have an excellent service. Lakmal and his amazing team always goes that extra step to make you feel your absolute best. When they knew I was celebrating my birthday they secretly got me a cake and we celebrated post the service. We are definitely going back to Bentota Ayurveda the next time we visit Srilanka and I'd recommend everyone who are at Bentota now or planning to visit to drop by for a relaxing massage. Thank you very much Lakmal and his team :)

    A must visit while in Bentota!
    A great place, clean with friendly and welcoming staff. Since I am a resident, I visit this spa regularly. My therapist Shanuka is not only a very friendly person but a true professional. His skills are phenomenal. I definitely can recommend to visit Bentota Ayurveda Center during a stay in Bentota.

    2 hour package was amazing
    We booked a 2 hour couples package. This was an amazing experience which included Shiodara, the dripping of oil on the forehead. Shanuka and Swarna were very experienced and professional. As it was our anniversary, they got us a cake. Lovely touch. As they say on their website, it’s not flash, but clean and equipped.

    Wonderful relaxing massage
    We were staying at the Villa Thamburu nearby and were recommended the Centre for a massage. We asked for the one hour package with Shiromi and Ian - it was wonderfully relaxing, including hot stone massage. I want to go back!

    Great treatment & wonderful people
    I had a fantastic experience with the Bentota Ayurveda Center. After one week of treatments, I feel significantly better. Nayana is an excellent masseuse; she guided me through the sessions with great care, always creating a pleasant and familiar atmosphere. I've grown very fond of her. Highly recommend!

    Pure Ayurveda!!
    I did a 2-week Panchakarma cure with Lakmal and his team. I stayed overnight at Lakmal's accommodation. About the cure: At the beginning I was given a detailed initial examination in which my dosha was determined. The plan for the next two weeks was then drawn up. The massages with Chin were incredible. I always felt very comfortable and in good hands. All the treatments (massages, acupuncture, Shirodhara, ...) were carried out very professionally. About the accommodation: It makes perfect sense to stay at Lakmal if you are doing a 2-week treatment. He takes great care of you and food at his accommodation is always a dream - tailored to your dosha. The two weeks at Lakmal are to be recommended in every respect and a great experience. In addition to the treatment, Lakmal organized several activities. Boat safari, temple visit, yoga, meditation, turtle farm (ok, you can skip that :)) If you decide on an Ayurveda cure, you should definitely go to Lakmal and his team :)

    Fabulous, massages and friendly, skilled masseurs.
    My husband and 9 year old daughter each had fabulous 1 hour massages at the Ayurveda Centre in Bentota today. Lakmal, the Centre owner, very kindly picked us up from our hotel and dropped us back afterwards. My masseur, Nayanna spoke great English and she gave me a brilliant, firm massage. Targeting problem areas and I felt wonderful afterwards. Naduni gave my daughter her first ever relaxing massage and she absolutely loved it. My daughter and I shared a treatment room. My husband was treated by a male masseur called Chinthaka, in a different room and his treatment was amazing too. Afterwards, we sat and had a hot herbal drinks overlooking the Centre garden. We can’t recommend the Ayurveda Centre enough. If you’re looking for a great treatment performed by friendly, skilled masseurs look no further.

    Incredible Authentic Experience!
    Made a last minute booking for my husband and I on my Birthday. Both had the one hour, herbal, massage. WOW! I've experienced many massages at 5* luxury resorts before, this beat them all....hands down! A truly authentic Sri Lankan experience. All the staff were so lovely but our masseuse had blessed hands with a spiritual touch. Will be returning more than once over the next few weeks I think! Cannot recommend enough! Even got gifted some tea as a birthday present.

The treatment was amazing! I’d highly recommend Bentota Ayurveda. The doctor consultation was informative and I’m following the food plan after returning home.

Only the best full body massage I’ve ever had! Ujitha was my masseur and she was expert in firm treatment.
I felt wonderful afterwards and my back benefited greatly.
Our Tuktuk driver Kumara, (+97 (77) 0339029 - introduced us to the Center. He took us to Malli’s restaurant and waited whilst we ate. We used him nearly every day as he was trustworthy and knowledgeable. He awaits your call

Went for a massage with my family.
The massages were incredible and very relaxing. The staff explains clearly about all treatments and massages and oils they will be using.
Thanks to Mr Lakmal for providing a good experience to us.

Visited the Bentota massage centre on 5 occasions over my vacation and was more than pleased with the massage I received from the same therapist too which was consistent. I’ll definitely be back!!!

I had a really great one hour massage with Lakmal, I wished I had been able to make it longer. I would definitely go back if I was in the area. The treatment room was a bit basic but it doesn’t matter when the massage is that good.
