A wonderful small hotel with spacious clean rooms and fantastic views over Kandy. Hands down best food we have eaten in Sri Lanka. Travelled with children and they got the best Kids Meals ever. Chicken nuggets were actually chicken kiev patties with fries..my husband wanted it! Service was excellent. A great place to stay.

Having written the first ever review of Theva on Trip Advisor, I thought it was time for another and after my latest visit the time seems right. From the beginning Theva was good but over the years it had gone from strength to strength. For me it possesses all the qualities of a boutique hotel: an amazing property, in a... More

The hotel's location, its staff, and its food (particularly the 17 curry dish meal) are all quite exceptional.We stayed for two nights last week and would readily recommend this hotel to anybody visiting Kandy.The views over the valley and the city are remarkable, the pool area ideal for relaxing and the service was perfect. Only one negative...we ordered a packed... More

We stayed at this Boutique Hotel in Feb 2015. Advertised as a Boutique Hotel would surely imply that indeed it is a small hotel. Small on number of rooms but big on service. We had a very pleasant two night stay with sensational views, comfortable room, gorgeous outlook over Kandy and excellent food. Staff were extremely friendly and eager to... More

We absolutely loved this hotel. It's stylish, comfortable, has great food and great service. Ignore the negative reports that have appeared here, they are a distortion. Yes, the Theva is one long climb up out of Kandy City and you will not want to do the journey on foot. But when you arrive you will find a very stylish hotel,... More

We , A Family visited this place for Dinner . Though the Web site showed pictures which gave the impression of a big hotel, there was only parking for two vehicles. It was a Poya day (Full Moon) so the bar was closed and no liquor served.We ordered few menus but non of them were up to the expectations. The... More

This boutique hotel is a long way up the hill from Kandy town centre, but once you are there, the panoramic mountain view is breathtaking. We managed to arrive in time to catch the last glimpse of the sunset from the terrace where meals were served, and the view was mesmerising. Indeed, the mountain view at breakfast was equally refreshing.... More

The staff was very hospitable and friendly from the beginning, the food was of international quality and the views were absolutely breath taking. Theva Residency is a small luxury boutique hotel with a total of 15 rooms. My only complaint would be that this is honeymoon destination and that the walls are very thin.

Theva Residency is my 1st Choice when ever I visit Kandy. The view from the hotel is just amazing and you have different breath holding views at differnt times of the day. The concept of the hotel is very unique and very carefully planned. The staff are extreamly courtious and are ready to help you around the clock. I will... More

Theva was an amazing experience, the views in each room are out of this world, the infinity pool should go into top 50 pools of the world and the best part is that the staff really make the place, character and charm, nothing was to much trouble. Highly recommend My only critism is that the food should be more Sri... More
