We stayed only one night and were upgraded to a room with a balcony and view over Kandy! The hotel is located uphill in Kandy in a very quiet neighborhoud. The room was spacious and clean, service was really good. We especially liked the food, the diner meals are a little bit pricy but it is worth it as it... More

I don'tnormally give a perfect score but this little hotel is excellent. The staff made us feel welcome and no matter what our enquiry we were met with a smile and a yes. Food was very nice and value for money. Views from every direction were breath taking. If you are visiting Kandy then I would recommend staying that little... More

I have been to this place many times but not every time I went to Kandy. Because, my decision to stay here will be depending on my purpose, how much relax, need a change and affordability. This is a boutique hotel in the mountainous area of Hantana in Kandy. Slightly away from city center. I prefered this place when I... More

We had a nice XMAS dinner as the staff tried very hard to make the night special. Great Sri Lankan breakfast which must be requested the eve before.Property is not for the handicaped or elderly. Lots-o floors and stairs between. I... More

My family and I recently visited Theva for a surprise birthday lunch for our mom. And the staff was incredibly helpful and professional in making it an incredible experience. The surroundings were beautiful and peaceful as always, and the food exquisite. The service was also superior, with attention to detail, especially in organizing a surprise birthday cake on short notice.... More

The name of this place is a little off. It should have been called Thieves-in-Residence…. What it has going for it: 1. Periodic stunning views. 2. A mostly charming, helpful staff What it has going against it: 1. Despite the pictures showing what appears to be a glass box, much of the public interior space manages to be cramped, gloomy,...

We only stayed here for one night and it is a decent enough hotel for a base in Kandy. Set high in the hills the views are spectacular. When we arrived we thought we had made a big mistake. The outside of the building as you drive up to it is very foreboding and the entrance strange. We were checked... More

Theva has slowly been gaining a reputation as a bastion of food innovation. And I don't doubt that for a bit. I have been dining in Kandy's best-kept secret for many years now, and I must say it's quite an experience. This so-called food revolution happening in Sunny Sri Lanka has seen many of the country’s best new restaurants sprouting... More

This resort is a bit large , but beautiful and the service us terrific! It rained where we were visiting so the pool was closed. The breakfast And dinner buffet had everything from sri lankan cooking to western food. We are not into buffets at all, but this was good quality to have a taste of everything. The buffet also...

Somewhere in the middle of nowhere about 30 minutes away from Kandy city centre, this place is a small boutique hotel with 15 rooms. I booked it through my tour planner who spoke highly about it. Unfortunately, it hasn't turned out to be that way. The rooms are rather small and the furniture is more style and less substance. Take... More
