welcomed with fruit drink then walked to immense room with view of hills. the chef came out to dining room after dinner to ask how everything was, which was excellent. Service impeccable and we are used to being spoiled. Homemade jams and jellies, beautiful presentation. morning swim in pool then breakfast on the tiled porch. Didn't want to leave

The residency was incredible, the views were outstanding and the venue itself was really nice. The restaurant that is attached to the residency is really nice as well, the good was great. We will definitely go back again at some point in the future.

Stayed for three nights in this hotel and enjoyed every second, thanks to the incredible views, food, staff and rooms! Really can't recommend Theva enough. On check in, we were told we'd been upgraded (hurray) and the suite was lovely, but as it was a corner room, we couldn't see the sunset from the balcony. When we mentioned this to...

Beautiful boutique hotel very close to the city but a bit away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We were there for dinner and almost all the dishes were very good with quick service. Very friendly service. It was lovely to enjoy a dinner outside in the cool open clear day with beautiful views. This hotel has 15...

My husband and I visited Sri Lanka as part of our honeymoon trip. We toured with Kanota Tours. Of our trip, this was the best hotel we stayed at! The room was smallish but comfortable and clean. The bedroom slippers were super comfortable. Our room had an excellent view and to commemorate our honeymoon, the hotel gave us a delicious...

The view alone is a great selling point for this lovely hotel set high up in the hills of Kandy, Loved the room, very spacious with a king bed and a terrace with tables and chairs and a lounge chair overlooking the Kandy hillside. Slightly dated looking furniture but overall would say that it works in this setting. Staff were...

We stayed at Theva in December 2015. We were a group of families with children of varying ages. We had a delightful stay. The service was impeccable as was the food. The chefs were very accommodating with children's needs. Highly recommended.

During our stay at Theva, we enjoyed the serenity of the city at best. It's location in hills made us enjoy the view of Kandy suburbs. The extremely warm welcome and its friendly staff also made our stay very much enjoyable. The food and the service were satisfactory. The room was cozy and its well maintained cleanliness helped relaxation. Thea...

Right at the top of the hill the hotel has incredible views. Rooms are good and clean. Views from the room are incredible and get there early to catch the sunset. Breakfast was fantastic and came with the room rate. Dinner was expensive and actually was the most expensive hotel dinner we had in Sri Lanka and we stayed only...

We had high expectations of this hotel, but we very disappointed. This place has great views, and the staff are great, BUT the rooms are tired and grubby; the mattresses/beds were old and very uncomfortable; and the management seem less interested in creating a genuine niche hotel, and more interested in making a quick buck from their guests (eg a...

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
