We stayed one night at Theva Residency for our Honeymoon We choose Suite and it was very big and view from the room was very beautiful. Food was delicious and they customized our requirement from the menu Only problem is there is no place to go around the hotel.

Maybe I had particularly high expectations given the high quality of the properties that I had been staying in in Sri Lanka, but Theva Residency just didn't tick all the boxes for me. It has the potential to be amazing - the positioning of the hotel and subsequent views are amazing. We had 3 rooms booked, the other 2 received... More

An exquisite piece of Architecture and tastefully furnished. The rooms are large. Food is also excellent. Not to mention the friendly and efficient staff. I would highly recommend this boutique hotel even if you are not into architecture.

We stayed in this hotel in April 2015. It took some effort to make a reservation as rooms were not available during the weekend we wanted to be there. So, we just changed our dates and stayed there. We were inspired by the reviews we saw on Trip Advisor and other sites.Check in was easy and quick. We were given... More

Theva is tastefully designed, contemporary and minimalist, at the same time retaining Sri Lanka and Kandy's cultural niches. To me and my colleagues, the hotel offered a welcoming cozy corner up the hill to relax; it has a homey feel and somewhat allows for more personal hospitality than larger hotels. Room is also sufficiently bright when I need to sit... More

Went as couple for 2 nights Location 5/5 We loved the location, high up and out of the centre of town.

Staff and service 5/5 The staff were helpful and always seemed around if any help was... More

Theva Residency is the perfect hotel to stay in Kandy. Nestled on top of the mountain overlooking Kandy city below. Very well appointed Rooms with Balcony rooms over looking the city. The Restaurant & Terrace Fine Dining is just amazing. Great food with Great Bar. The Manager & Chef are fantastic. Amazing smell of fresh Bread being Baked at 11am... More

Unparalleled views, fantastic staff, luxury accommodation and superb food. The one draw-back might be considered to be the distance from the city centre, c. 20 minutes in a trishaw. However, this is mitigated by the views and peacefulness of being at the highest point in the city. Highly recommended.

We traveled all over Sri Lanka looking and staying at several hotels, this was by far our favourite. The hotel is outstanding from looks, location, food and service. Our room was incredible with a balcony that overlooked the town and was also sunset facing. The food was versatile and original but mainly the stand out thing that we noticed was... More

This hotel has an amazing location .. brilliant views .. however nothing much after that .. tiny rooms and under the guise of being a botique hotel the staff tries to justify various things ! The breakfast portion of the deal is misguiding .. a fixed menu and limited portion breakfast is served .. saw much better service standards else... More
