We loved our stay at this hilltop hotel, overlooking busy, bustling Kandy. The view is epic, but even better is the staff. To call Abey (the assistant manager) helpful is an understatement. His English was great and he was essential in planning our days and assisting us with some medical issues. Also a highlight: the 17 spice Sri Lankan curry...

Built high on the mountain, the hotel offers breathtaking hilltop views. The dinner and breakfast were delicious. The room was large, spacious and very modern. The staff couldn’t not have been nicer and more friendly. The hotel is very reasonably priced for Sri Lanka. The wifi signal needs improving. I highly recommend the property.

Beautiful hotel - loved having breakfast overlooking Kandy and dinner in the evening was great. Satisfying and yummy breakfast both mornings. For dinner - We ordered the 17 condiment curry and were stuffed and happy by the end! Our room was a bit noisy in the morning as it was over the street so cars coming up could be heard...

The hotel has a great view from Rooms. The pool is nice and clean but small. They do not serve buffet breakfast instead you have to order it Ala Cart, and the quality of Food is really nice. The staff is little bit rough sometimes in their services and feels non courteous some times.

We spent 2 nights in The Theva Residency - a first rate Hotel in the hills of Kandy - which we can highly recommend! Excellent service, outstanding cuisine, top quality location! - If possible book the Honeymoon Suite and try the Sri Lankan Breakfast! Thank you for this unforgettable stay! Brigitte & Mario

On the hill overlooking Kandy and a good choice as Kandy is choked by petrol and diesel fumes. Good food but really not Sri Lankan enough. Great views. Clean and very friendly and prompt service. Popular as a restaurant too. Good in-house bar and transport facilities chargable. Ask for Derek if you want a guide with a nice car. Don't...

This is my favourite spot in Kandy. The rooms are lovely, the whole hotel is beautifully designed, the staff and the food both are excellent . Dinner on the terrace perhaps my favourite thing about it, i just love I the view of Kandy from above at night, it's magical, like a valley of stars.

We stayed here for two nights on our tour of Sri Lanka and I have to say we were not disappointed. It is a small hotel set up in the hills and has a very nice if somewhat small infinity pool. What makes the hotel so special is the attentive, friendly staff and the fantastic food. Dining on the terrace...

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
