This was an unusual hotel set high in the hills overlooking Kandy and because of that being on the side of a hill it circulation was vertical not horizontal. This means a lot stairs to climb back and forward between parts of the hotel. This was not a problem for us but if stairs are not your thing it might...

Family residence converted to a contemporary perfect small hotel A class by itself in comparison to the large group hotels with the standard buffets Catering to large groups. Sweeping views, lovely pool, and open air dining with fabulous food. A wonderful treat as we travelled north to south through central Sri Lanka. European style hotel with great service.

The rooms I found abit out dated and too not cosy the bathrooms were okay. The swimming pool was very...

"Boutique hotel" must be one of the most abused phrases in the history of hospitality description. The Theva Residency can call themselves a boutique hotel until they are blue in the face but it does not detract from the fact that this place has very uncomfortable beds and only 8 sunbeds on a very small sun terrace by the pool...

Interestingly designed small hotel and restaurant built on a very steep slope about 3km tuk tuk ride from the lakeside up very steep hills. Helpful staff and excellent food. We were there on Valentine's Day and heart shaped biscuits and chocolates appeared in our room and they offered us a 5 course Valentine menu as part of our half-board. Do...

Great view over Kandy, was really amazing in the morning and at sunset. The food at the restaurant was really nice, we thoroughly enjoyed the food here. We emailed before to explicitly ask not for the 'blue' room, they confirmed that they would give us one of the other rooms. Now if they hadn't confirmed and we got to the...

One night stay on the way to east coast. Very good boutique hotel, nicely furnished rooms, great views and fantastic restaurant. Staff could not do enough for us and overall very good value for money. Small but elegant swimming pool, a calm serene place.

I cannot say enough about this property. It is in a quiet location with a fantastic view. Our accommodation, the penthouse, was amazing. The pool was great; breakfasts and dinners terrific. Best of all was the impeccable service by all concerned. The manager holds a daily staff meeting and it shows. Keep up the good work!

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
