What a great stay at theva - we got a lovely welcome drink on arrival as well as an introduction to the hotel and facilities. We were on our honeymoon so were expecting an upgrade or at least some flowers on the  bed which we didn't actually get initially. The view from the room wasn't great but generally the hotel...

Originally booked for 5 nights by travel agent but discovered that Most of Kandi could be seen in a day so enjoyed 2 nights at this delightful hotel. The location is high up and away from the busy town. There are spectacular views across mountains and some of the outskirts of Kandi but not of the lake or town centre....

We stayed here for one night before kicking off our short trip around Sri Lanka. The staff were some of the friendliest people I've met - helping with every request, and always with a smile on their face. We arrived a few hours before check-in time, but were able to have an ace breakfast on the terrace - which has...

When we booked we could only get a room that we had been told was very small but were pleasantly surprised that was actually not too bad (although from what we have seen rooms in Sri Lanka do seem very big on average) and still had a lovely view. Also nice touch was them providing biscuits and fruit in the...

Theva is a lovely property in itself, but the most outstanding aspect about it is the quality of its staff. It runs all the way from the top, with the hotel manager Abhay standing out with his exceptional helpfulness and hospitality. We were very well taken care of, and the staff went out of their way to make sure that...

My family of four stayed here in the last week and we loved it. The penthouse suite is amazing and the food is really great at the restaurant. The hotel is high on a hillside and has fantastic views over the city. Highly recommended.

Theva is a beautiful place to stay high in the mountains surrounding Kandy. While the room we stayed in was a little tired, the views more than made up for it. Woke up to a sunrise from heaven - the outlook from the restaurant terrace at breakfast a magnificent way to start the day. The staff fell over themselves to...

The staff was friendly and the service was good. But the room and bathroom was not clean. No shower door, so the bathroom flooded. Lots of mildew. Too many gadgets near the TV, not sure what to turn off. Wireless internet was slow and off at times. Breakfast was great. We wanted to try this based on reviews but sorry,...

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
