Another fantastic boutique hotel in Sri Lanka. Worth the tuk-tuk ride up into the hills from town, as the views are amazing. (Have made the photo from our room the wallpaper on my computer.) Rooms are reasonable size and beautifully styled. A well-organised team of friendly staff. Very well done all around.

Great boutique hotel that located on top of the hill. The best part about this place is the beautiful view of the hill and the city. In addition, the staff is well trained and professional. They were flexible and were very accommodating to our son. They also have a fantastic deck that look over the city. The Sri Lanka breakfast... More

WE had a short stay at the Theva. But the stay was great. The deluxe room was quite small for two person but the view made it. The food was very good. The breakfast could have more international selections but for a short stay great. The staff was very Nice and friendly... Always smiling.

As other reviewers have said, this is a small charming hotel with stunning views across the city. It also provided my husband and I with the most memorable and beautiful sunset we have ever seen in our years of travelling, Very nice staff and the food was delicious - freshly cooked breakfasts, lots of fruit and top quality dinner.

We had dinner and breakfast there and the food was very good. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was above the swimming pool. It was small but it had everything... More

Great little hotel about 2 km outside of Candy with a fab view from the restaurant terrace. The rooms are very spacious with good views again. quite a steep drive up from the town of Kandy but worth it. Smallish infinity pool. The real treat here though was the quality of the restaurant food ;waiter served at breakfast and dinner.... More

Delightful hotel with boutique ambience and such friendly staff. Enjoyable pool and almost rural quietness away from city noise and bustle. The food was the best to date on our Sri Lanka holiday. Than you Theva team for your attention, we appreciated everything.

We only stayed here for one night as we passed through Kandy and we were in a very basic room in the lower levels of the hotel. I understand that other rooms are much nicer but we found our room somewhat lacking in character. There wasn't very much in the way of of furniture and we felt that a chair... More
