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

Really good room. Staff is amazing and a food is even better. I guess that their should have to supply free of charge city drop off like some guest houses are doing. And drinking water bottles shouldn't be 5 times market price. But beside these 2 things this is one of the best hotels I've stayed in. Thanks.

We expected a boutique hotel from all the reviews. The hotel is far from it. Very simple and uninspiring furnishing (although big rooms). Somewhat even shabby at places. Cigarette wholes on the pool sofa. We paid over 200 $ but its worth 60-100 $ and not a penny more. A glass of juice cost nearly 8 $ (900)rupies without the... More

We are very sorry that your experience with us was so not a great one. First of all when you had no complaints while you stayed with us and at the end at checkout you had complained about the issue of no driver’s quarters, telephone wires, high priced juice etc…First of all let me say that if you were unhappy...
