The hotel is located in a beautiful place and the view from the balcony was amazing. Since it is slightly away from the Kandy city, it is a perfect place to spend your weekend. The swimming pool is not very big but adequate for the hotel. The food is amazing.

A great retreat in the hills overlooking Kandy. All the staff were excellent and very attentive. The meals were amazing particularly the Sri Lankan curries for breakfast and dinner. Would certainly return if in the area again.

Sadly we only spent two nights in this super hotel, high in the hills above Kandy. We were mesmerised by the views over the city from our very spacious ground floor room and balcony. The temperature is several degrees cooler and very welcome after the madness of the city. Russell and his team are outstandingly good at making you feel...

Fantastic location and facilities. Enjoyed a fantastic meal looking over the lights of Kandy. We only arrived at 6.00 p.m. and were on our way at 9.00a.m.which was a shame. You need 2 nights at least to take advantage of the facilities.

Read some pretty amazing reviews about the restaurant before going there and Theva didn’t let us down. I can honestly say we had the best food in Sri Lanka there, it met our expectations in any way possible. First of all, Theva is beautifully located out of Kandy, out of the sounds and exhaust fumes of the congested town. It...

just a quick chug in a tuk tuk from the city centre to this peaceful bolt hole with fantastic views from the terrace down over the city. Friendly efficient staff mix fine cocktails and the food is particularly delicious and a welcome change from the ubiquitous Sri Lankan tourist buffet- recommend the Sri Lankan spiced steak or their special curry...

Beautiful stay at Theva! Our room had the most spectacular view! We enjoyed some pool time and ate at their restaurant one night. The breakfast was made to order and delicious! The staff was friendly and we enjoyed our 2 nights here. Great boutique hotel up in the hills of Kandy! A+ stay! We were sad to leave!

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
