This place was aesthetically amazing, and an absolute comfort to come back to each day. The place is 15 minutes away from the main city in Kandy and requires an upward drive and a sharp turn into the residence, which seems to be the main drawback. Otherwise, it's gorgeous and the staff are very friendly. Amazing balcony views as well.

A first class restaurant. The staff in this boutique hotel are exceptional. We loved our large room with outside balcony with the most amazing sunsets. The individually designed rooms are so colourful. We loved the hotel so much we returned for a second visit and were greeted so warmly by the staff.

A nice place to return to each evening from our touring. A sunset pool dip was relaxing. The evening food selection was great. My compliments to the chef. Table services were excellent and accommodating. And for breakfast, the Sri Lankan breakfast option is definitely the way to go. The breakfast being part of the room rate is a nice provision....

Overall: Amazing views. Highly recommend getting the suite- giant windows with great views and a jacuzzi. Although the cheapest room also had a nice view, just smaller and a bit lower. There's a games room and infinity pool which were both great. I would recommend to friends. I do have some considerations though, read on.... Service: The staff were all...

This is a wonderful little hotel. You have a great view from the restaurant, and even better from some of the rooms. The standard is good and the service is familiar without loosing the professionalism. It is a great place to spend a few days and get awy from the buzz. But it is still close to Kandy, so you...

Along a hilltop overlooking Kandy, this was a lovely retreat from the chaos of the city below. Beautiful, calm views especially at dawn and sunset. Exquisite setting for indoor/outdoor dining. Prime attributes were the cuisine, dining service and hotel location. We particularly loved the food and how it was presented. Winding up the mountaintop, perched above the clouds. We chose...

Stayed here two nights while exploring Kandy and the local area. If you have read any reviews, you know this place is in the hills. Way up in the hills, Kandy itself is 15-20 minutes away, but that seems to be the norm in the area, all the hotels are located outside of the city, which is a pretty busy...

Perfect little luxury getaway in Kandy, with a stunning hillside view. Rooms are beautifully decorated and so comfortable with everything you need to make your stay memorable. Food is divine and what makes this place really worth your visit is how you are looked after and made to feel pampered, by the staff.

Stay here one night each while travelling to and from Badulla/Ella. The hotel is beautiful and offers a great view of Kandy. The staff's hospitality is beyond expectations. Even though the hotel is situated on the hill, it's only no more than 10 minutes away from the train station. I will definitely stay here again in my future visits to...

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
