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

The room was clean. Views lovely and the food very tasty. The manager helped us achieve our following travel plans. I was very happy with the hotel. A nice surprise was the sauna and steam. It is about a 10 minute tuk tuk drive up the mountain away from the station. So if you stay here you are reliant on... More

This hotel is not suitable for older people or for those with knee trouble or asthma. Terraced floors hence no lifts and many concrete steps could cause injury. The night time shutters were nearly eight inches short allowing light into the room we stayed. We were a group of six including a family with two children aged 6 and 9... More

We had a lovely stay at Theva residence. The hotel is very well maintained, beautiful room and scenery on top of Hantane mountain. Enjoy your breakfast with a view and lovely weather. The hotel manager, Russell was also very helpful. The location is a bit out from the town central, so be sure to have your transportation figured out.

When we arrived at the theva residency everything seemed to be perfect. Nice little boutique hotel on the hill with a lovely view over Kandy. The rooms weren't ready yet when we arrived so we opted for a swim. During our swim the pool attendant was very friendly and wanted to be as hospitable as possible. When laying out our... More

Great property. Clean rooms, courteous staff, great food do try their biryani, the cocktails are award winning. The location of property is simply superb and you will simply blend in this atmosphere and won't feel like going back the superior rooms are bigger but the view of regular rooms is better. The pool is small but clean. Must see the... More

Visited their restaurant! Amazing atmosphere to dine in with mountains surrounding you. The menu needs more food options, lunch was only limited to a few options and desserts hardly had any options. Flavour could improve a bit more. The Carbonara was quite tasteful.

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
