A note from Theva Residency

Travellers' Choice
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.

Theva Residency is the best spot for a weekend getaway for couples, families or with friends. Nestled on top of the mountains of Hantana, this boutique hotel offers the most tranquil and peaceful experiences with the most amazing views. A great escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, I had the most wonderful time enjoying the sunset with a delicious, chilled cocktail. One of the most romantic and dream-like places to visit in Kandy.

Hotel's Favourite
The hotel was fairly quiet while we were there so we were lucky enough to be upgraded to a balcony room which had wonderful views across the valley and from where it was lovely to watch the sunrise and sunset. The room was large and airy and well equipped and the bathroom was not exciting but perfectly functional. The best thing about Theva was the charming staff and the amazing food. The breakfasts were lovely with fresh fruit and juices, pastries and Toast and a choice of several hot options. We actually prefer this to the usual buffets you get in Sri Lanka. The evening meals were even better and were the best we had on our trip round Sri Lanka. Really great food of a very high standard. The pool was nice but a little cold, I was the only one brave enough to venture in while we were there. If you want a peaceful oasis from the bustle of Kandy with great food and service then you should definitely stay here.

We spent 2 days at Theva Residency and Abey and his team were absolutely fantastic in taking very good care of us. We were in the Penthouse and the views are incredible! The food was outstanding and a good variety to choose from. A gem of a boutique hotel nestled in the Hanthana Hills!

Theva Recidency is one of the best places to stay in Hanthana,Kandy. You can enjoy a beautiful view from your room with a cup of morning coffee with some lovely cookies. They have best chefs to offer you delicious foods. Their cheese spaghetti with seafood is something you shouldn’t miss. Watching the sunset while dip in the hot tub was something i was dreamed about. Stuff is super friendly. Collected so many beautiful memories at Theva Recidency.
