The view alone is a great selling point for this lovely hotel set high up in the hills of Kandy, Loved the room, very spacious with a king bed and a terrace with tables and chairs and a lounge chair overlooking the Kandy hillside. Slightly dated looking furniture but overall would say that it works in this setting. Staff were... More

We stayed at Theva in December 2015. We were a group of families with children of varying ages. We had a delightful stay. The service was impeccable as was the food. The chefs were very accommodating with children's needs. Highly recommended.

During our stay at Theva, we enjoyed the serenity of the city at best. It's location in hills made us enjoy the view of Kandy suburbs. The extremely warm welcome and its friendly staff also made our stay very much enjoyable. The food and the service were satisfactory. The room was cozy and its well maintained cleanliness helped relaxation. Thea... More

Right at the top of the hill the hotel has incredible views. Rooms are good and clean. Views from the room are incredible and get there early to catch the sunset. Breakfast was fantastic and came with the room rate. Dinner was expensive and actually was the most expensive hotel dinner we had in Sri Lanka and we stayed only... More

We had high expectations of this hotel, but we very disappointed. This place has great views, and the staff are great, BUT the rooms are tired and grubby; the mattresses/beds were old and very uncomfortable; and the management seem less interested in creating a genuine niche hotel, and more interested in making a quick buck from their guests (eg a...

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

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
