Stayed here for a couple of days whilst sightseeing. Hotel is down the bottom of a steep hill and because of that we chose to eat in the restaurant, which was excellent. Menu choice was very good and the food equally so. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The view from our balcony was great. There is a small...

Up a winding hill above Kandy, our driver was not convinced we were heading in the right direction but alas we arrived at the lovely Theva Residency. Set outside the city, with great views across the valley the hotel is calm and relaxed. The service was really good throughout. We stayed over the Sri Lankan new year and as such...

However, the rooms let the side down. Our room was large with a balcony overlooking the valley. It’s very minimalist décor was dated and tired. The bed was...

After staying at a lot of big resorts, our 2 night stay here was something special. The room and view is stunning, the restaurant and staff were excellent. The morning view of clouds across the valley of Kandy were serene. It is situated at the top of a hill so not walking distance down to town, but worth it for...

Yes, yes, yes. Clinging snugly to the side of the hill, the superb views combined with the wonderful food and the excellent service to give us a memorable few days. We were almost reluctant to leave each morning to go sightseeing.

The hotel is very nice. The view is amazing, the suite is spacious and has a jacuzzi in front of the view. The staff is very nice and makes you feel special. The chef is excellent, we had a great dinner.

Situated up in the hills near the tea plantations this is a great spot to get away from the hubbub of Kandy after a hard days touring. The rooms are minimalist concrete boxes, which are nevertheless reasonably comfortable and offer great views down towards the city. Food is good with night time dining on the terrace a delight. Staff are...

My husband and I enjoyed a peaceful night at Theva watching the sun set and rise over the Kandy hills whilst indulging in the restaurant's simply glorious food. Fine dining in the heart of Sri Lanka - a dream come true! The staff were all lovely and gave impeccable service, making us feel very spoiled! The bed was super dreamy...

Lovely boutique hotel with friendly service. Fantastic views over Kandy. Lovely pool. Breakfast delightful, overlooking the views. Dinner a bit disappointing. Good laundry service. Would recommend this hotel.

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
