Theva Residency is a contemporary boutique hotel just 10 minutes from Kandy Town, Sri Lanka, that allows guests to relax and revive themselves.  Above all the Theva Residency is a private and luxurious home away from home whose winning formula is based on giving guests an exceptionally personalise level of service. With breathtaking views over the mountains, coupled with modern design and a mouth-watering menu there is no better boutique hotel than Theva from which to explore the buzzing and historical city of Kandy. The entrance to this family-owned Chic Retreat provides a taster of what follows with a row of head dresses used in the Perehera guiding you to the reception.  Fittings, table centres and even the avant-garde firewall bar are reminiscent of elements from the glorious and flamboyant Kandy Perehera festival which takes place in August each year in the last 10 days of the 'Esala' moon month before the August full moon. Glass walls, traditional wood, contemporary lights and polished chrome sit happily side by to create striking interiors.  


For the few who wish to venture outside their room they can sweat it out in the sauna or swim laps in the infinity pool. Sun seekers have a special lounging area by the pool where they can enjoy a drink at the poolside bar. 

The location of The Theva Residency is a treat for all nature lovers, who will enjoy and appreciate the beautiful variety of flora and fauna as well as the endless views of mountains and fresh air. Theva is close to the lush Hantana Rainforest  - an ideal destination for bird-watchers and those interested in trekking and hiking.  Kandy, which is nearby, is one of the most scenic and ancient cities in Sri Lanka; it is both an administrative and religious city. Kandy is the home of The Temple of the Tooth Relic (Sri Dalada Maligawa) and is one of the most venerable places for the Buddhist community of Sri Lanka and all around the world. It was declared a world heritage site by UNESCO in 1988.


As we would expect, the dining experience at Theva is just as magical as the stay.  A whisper of a snack or a feast of a meal can be served throughout the day by the resident chef and his team who create a range of culinary delights; a fusion of east and west, new and old, sweet and sour.  The open-air seating outside the dining hall is the perfect spot for an early drink, as the sun disappears over the hills.
