The views are wonderful and the rooms are very comfortable - it is clear a lot of thought has gone into the interior design. During my stay I slept in two rooms (one superior and one deluxe) both very good in different ways. The food was, with a few exceptions (dishes not to my taste) was amazing and the hospitality...

The most amazing hotel. The staff were so helpful as there was a number of us and the rooms and bookings were quite complicated. They arranged everything and gave us some room upgrades. I booked direct with them. We arrived late evening and as the hotel is very close to Kandy but at the top of a hill with a... More

My visit to this place wasn't planned , a friend suggested this place for lunch and I have no regrets . Located at the top of the mountain this place offers stunning views of the valley . The staff is overtly polite and quite accommodating . The views are absolutely spectacular and the glass wall all across the hotel leaves... More

We stayed at Theva Residency for one night, and our experience was superb from start to finish. We arrived around 2.30 pm and received a warm welcome from Abey and the rest of the staff, and a refreshing ambarella drink. Theva Residency is well known for its international cuisine, and the lunch, dinner and breakfast we had there confirmed this... More

If you are going to visit Kandy, Theva is a must for great location, view, food and more importantly awesome staff. They have raised the bar in service for Sri Lanka and I was happy to choose this place to propose to the love of my life. They took great care of us and made sure everything was seamless, even...

We travelled to Theva Residency as our first stop in Sri Lanka straight from the airport, we arrived at 4pm and figured that we would go directly to Kandy rather than stay in Columbo for the night. After a long, windy drive through the mountains in the monsoon rain we finally reached the hotel, (the journey took approximately 3 hours... More

My wife and I booked two nights at Theva hotel. The food is fresh and tasty (Excellent chefs), the staff are great and the view from the rooms were amazing. Only 8 minutes from the center (by CAR or Tok-Tok).

Stayed here in late September 2014 for 2 nights - we were so glad we did, it was a lovely place with spectacular views. Special mention to the chef, breakfast was lovely but dinner was amazing- I would definitely recommend eating here! We tried a variety of dishes and all exceeded expectations. Thanks!
