This is a charming boutique hotel with attentive service and outstanding food (the best we've had in Sri Lanka so far!) Friendly, attentive staff, breathtaking views, and contemporary, attractive rooms. Loved the infinity pool and views of Kandy from our room and the restaurant. Highly recommend this lovely hotel!!

We stayed for 3 nights as part of our trip around Sri Lanka - for the whole time the staff looked after us very well. They happily coped when we moved from outside to inside to eat because of the changeable weather and on another day from inside to out! The food was lovely and when we had to leave... More

We arrived from Cinnamon Lodge yesterday. This a beautiful hotel with an exceptional view. The service is more attentive than Cinnamon Lodge and the meals have been the best we have had in Sri Lanka thus far. If you will be visiting Kandy, this is the place to stay.

I was accompanying colleagues to Kandy on work/holiday visit and knew they would want a place to unwind after weeks of back-to-back meetings. Theva was spot on. The welcome drink we were served was just perfect and we were spoilt for choice when it came to dinner. My colleagues (from Switzerland and India) were thrilled by the use of local... More

I stayed here based on the high TripAdvisor views and am disappointed to say that this establishment seems to be coasting on its high prior rating and nice views. Nothing about this establishment was 5 star (save for the price). The room- sparsely furnished- was falling apart. Our air conditioner was broken, and upon reporting this to the staff no... More

We provide 2 bottles complimentary water as many hotels not only in Sri Lanka but all over the world! When a room is booked on double basis, then it is hotel policy to provide two waters and complimentary coffee, tea etc and if you wish to have more, you will be charged. If larger hotels in Sri Lanka seemed to... More

A nice hotel, but resting a little on its TripAdvisor success perhaps? The chef whips up a great meal, and it is a tuk-tuk ride to town (there's no driver accommodation here). Unless you're here for a few days, go lazy and dine in. Breakfast is not to be missed too. I booked the penthouse for a birthday splurge. Too... More

We visited Kandy for 2 nights in January 2015. Theva Residency is an awesome hideaway a little outside of Kandy on a steep hill. Everything was perfect- the rooms are nicely decorated and the staff is friendly and helpful. They recommended probably the best and nicest driver in Sri Lanka- Jim, who took us to Sigiriya and all the way... More

Incredible view! Attentive staff - couldn't do enough for you. Breakfast was amazing - particularly the fruit platter. Dinners were delicious too. We almost had the hotel to ourselves so was great. Pool too cold but stunning views! Much better being up the hill away from kandy town. Nearer to the tea plantations here which we found much more pleasant
