The most spectacular location for a hotel the views are awesome and the rooms clean and beautifully laid out. Lovely staff as well. Best place for a cocktail at sundown in the world. Short trip downhill into town....great food too.

Theva, a short drive from downtown, up in the hills, is a unique, contemporary, boutique hotel that's perfect for a visit to Kandy. The staff are extremely hospitable and the meals were delicious. Well done guys! Oh yes, the sundowners on the terrace and dip in the infinity pool were welcomed treats at the end of each day. The view... More

Delighted with my stay at Theva was very blissful. Theva is a unique contemporary boutique hide away nestled amongst the Hantana hills, is a truly special place to be. The views are spectacular, the service unquestionably fantastic, and the place is very unique. A serene delight and an almost magical place to truly appreciate the beauty around. I only wish...

another stylish boutique that I wish I could have spent more time at. There's a great rooftop restaurant overlooking the valley, with Kandy beyond. (I ordered the crab, which was messy and delicious!) The rooms are very nice, though they were queen beds, so a little too small for sharing with a friend. (We got separate rooms.) But they had...

Theva is truly a home away from home. Courteous homely staff always carrying a smile. Rooms are amazing spacious with fantastic views of the hills. Quite place with no distractions perfect for some alone time.

My family and I had lunch here one day, hoping for a change from all the buffets, and what a wonderful change it was. The location is beautiful, and the food was delicious. My husband has the rice and curry which comes with 17 different (small) dishes, and it was spectacular. We left Theva more than satisfied. Truly a wonderful... More

We stayed in the penthouse and the views were absolutely stunning overlooking Kandy and the mountains the sunset was gorgeous. The hotel staff are all really friendly and nothing is too much trouble we had a slight problem with the air conditioning not working in part of our room and the manager Russell was straight up to sort it out....

My husband and I had a very relaxed time at Theva Residency. The staff are all friendly and attentive. The food is great and the view is fabulous. The property is somewhat small, but it is the ideal place for a quiet, relaxed weekend. Perhaps this is not a good place for a family with small children since there isn't... More
