Stay here one night each while travelling to and from Badulla/Ella. The hotel is beautiful and offers a great view of Kandy. The staff's hospitality is beyond expectations. Even though the hotel is situated on the hill, it's only no more than 10 minutes away from the train station. I will definitely stay here again in my future visits to...

Friendly staff, lovely rooms and a great view. Very comfortable bed which helped to wipe out our jet lag. A great start to our stay in Sri Lanka. Winding road to get there but worth it for the view. A good choice.

Located high up on the Hantana Mountain overlooking Kandy, it is a hotel perched on the hillside. The views are extraordinary. We stayed in a suite with a Jacuzzi. The room was lovely, well appointed with an extraordinary view of the valley below. Dinner on the terrace under the stars was ethereal, but the food was merely adequate - except...

We really enjoyed staying 2 nights at this little hotel nestled into the hillside with a wonderful view over Kandy. Nice to be out of the town and look down on it over breakfast and dinner. The restaurant was really good. Amazing Sri Lankan breakfast on offer that you need to pre order the night before. Very good service offered...

Nice welcome on arrival. Popped down to the infinity pool where my wife took a swim and I took a sunbed. First night OK. I had Angel Hair pasta with prawn and we had a bottle of Malbec. My wife had Fajitas which she enjoyed. Second night! Oh dear! My wife ordered the Parrot Fish which she found underwhelming and...

My husband & i were there in the first week of March, 2016. The hotel is very basic. The view from the terrace and from our room was amazing. The food was very good too. The air conditioning was not effective enough because of its location & the size of the room. The staff tried to change the settings-that made...

Although the hotel is up a hill just outside Kandy, the city is only a short drive away. There are spectacular views from the balconies and from the restaurant and the rooms are spacious, modern and stylish. The staff are particularly friendly and we had two excellent meals on the terrace admiring the sunset.

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
