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!

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...

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
