I stayed at this amazing boutique hotel for two nights when I visited Sri Lanka in June this year along with my wife and friends. The room was quite extraordinary with all basic facilities and to top it all the outside view was simply breathtaking. The staff was very courteous, helpful and ever-smiling. We had a kid with us too... More

My husband and I stayed overnight at this hotel during our tour of Sri Lanka, unfortunately it was only for one night, we would have loved to have stayed longer. It is only a small boutique hotel with 15 rooms and the rooms are quite small, but the whole hotel is so modern and tastefully decorated. The staff are unbelievable,... More

Hotel was quoting a price of $186, then we showed them a website price of 117$ (+taxes) and we told them that we will book from the web site ... so they started creating lot of fuss.. initially they mentioned you give us flat $150 without worrying about taxes.. we agreed on that .. but they started reversing on that...

My manager informed you very politely that we do have rooms and if you wish you can come to our hotel to stay the night. Rates were not asked or discussed at this point. Then you... More

A small hotel with attentive staff. We stayed in suite no.1 which has fantastic views; but this place is a curate's egg in being good in parts. e.g. It was surprising to find a high end boutique hotel that didn't cater for modern technology. Although there was free wifi, there was only one electric plug and that was for the... More

I think you would find it extremely difficult to find a better hotel in the kandy area. Staff are amazing. Rooms are very well appointed. Food is consistently five star. Hanging out of an infinity pool clinging to the side of a mountain..Once in a lifetime? Attention to detail - superb. Sense of humour of staff- amazingly European. Value for... More

The hotel has a nice view, but it is quite small with small communal areas. Noise carried into the room from outside made it a bit difficult to have quite sleeping (we stayed in the room 4). We had a lovely lunch and the food was very delicious, but the selection was not as good for dinner. The staff was... More

Top notch food, very pleasant staff. Stunning views. Seems popular with the British. Only 5 years old although built on an older site. Lots of effort has gone into furnishings and design. Small (15 rooms I think?) and smart infinity pool is for relaxation/plunge rather than lengths. Stunning balcony although when raining there's nowhere else to sit for a drink... More

We arrived into Kandy from Colombo on the train and were a bit apprehensive about how far the hotel might be outside the main amenities. I am so glad we chose to stay here, the views and luxury far outweighed being within the town, and the journey was not a problem, loads of yuk tuks. Opening the blinds in the... More

We loved the Theva and most of all Russell's' smile :-) A lovely welcome and a fabulous view from our Deluxe Room. The breakfasts were great, especially the pineapple jam! Ask for the signature cocktail containing Arrack and do have the curry and rice! (We chose NOT to have Western food as we didn't travel to Sri Lanka to have... More
