Theva Residency is a bit out of town, but, that affords it's quiet nature. The views are spectacular, rooms super comfortable with good amenities. The manager & staff are superb & the food delicious... we all loved the breakfast! First class.

Theva has been a wonderful place to stay, suggested to all who have high travel standard, it is peacefull, relaxing, charming, high food quality and there is a breathtaking view from both the room and the restaurant. What was even better than our expectation is the super kind and caring staff. It was clear that their first interest is to... More

10 of us visited Theva in September 2015 as part of a Miris Trails Culinary Tour of Sri Lanka. We stopped in Kandy for one night en route to Nuwara Eliya. This beautiful boutique hotel is situated in the Hatana Ranges of Kandy and you wake up to the most breath taking views. We were greeted with welcome mocktails and... More

Theva Residency is uphill from town which gives fantastic views over Kandy and the surrounding area. We opted for the penthouse which was incredible value considering it was the biggest room we had ever seen. The room, hotel, pool and grounds were spotlessly clean, it's clear the owners are proud of their hotel and it's very well managed by Abey... More

We have just had two nights at this Kandy Hotel. The view from the breakfast terrace and the rooms is worth the stay. Add to this a great restaurant and everything you need for a good break. We could actually have stayed here another day, just to chill by the pool, have a beer and enjoy the views. You are... More

Very warm welcome to the hotel by the owner on arrival and plenty of smiley faces on the staff. Our room was spacious and clean as was the bathroom. Nice balcony overlooking the town. We dined in the hotel restaurant both evenings and the food was very good with plenty of choices and a good drinks selection. Waiters were very... More

Stayed only 1 night at this smallish, boutique hotel in the hills above Kandy. Tuk tuk to Kandy is about 450-500 LKR each way and an exciting ride, especially at night. Our kids loved it! Food was wonderful - we had lunch when we arrived and also breakfast. One of the better meals we had in our 10 days in... More

We picked this place because of the amazing pictures and we opted for a deluxe room for our two days stay. It turns out that the deluxe is actually the smallest and noisiest room with no view and small windows. The bed was quite hard, the lights could not be turned off without removing the power, the fridge was broken... More

What a gorgeous hotel! Stunning views from our room which was a suite (number 3) with a huge jacuzzi bath by the windows. Definitely worth the upgrade. Comfy beds and walk in waterfall showers- very romantic indeed! Our friends - another couple also got a suite but their room was different. It had a small balcony but the only view... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A slice of Heaven… Nestled in the Hantana Hills Theva sits overlooking Kandy town. As you drive through the windy roads up the Hantana hills one can see the ethereal glistening of small city lights filling the night sky. An undoubtedly magical entrance to this boutique hotel. The food is divine and prepared with the utmost devotion and attention to detail. The Chef and his team have really been able to bring world-class food to this remote location. ... more   less
