AREA Hill Country
FROM COLOMBO 116 km - 3 hours 30 minutes


Located in the hill country capital of Kandy, Theva residency is boutique hotel that likes to take an extremely informal and personal approach when it comes to their visitors. Located on a small plot of land, within the clasp of the edge of the Hantana mountain range, Theva lies but two kilometers away from Kandy town. The drive from Colombo will take approximately three and half hours.


Theva is a place of quiet heritage and reflection. The ambience generally pivots on the core principles of a uniquely personalized service and the d├ęcor serves to illustrate and stand as a constant reminder to the greatness of Kandy and its endurance against colonizers. They are light, modern and airy, executed with a mixture of white walls, cement, wood and glass, while vibrant murals depicting the Kandy Perahera accost you when you least expect it. No matter where you stand in the hotel, you will be exposed to overwhelming views of Kandy and its mountains. Theva offers 5 star cuisine and facilities alongside a legacy of the last city of the kingdom of Ceylon.


Theva uses its small space with an intelligent design of its rooms and public areas standing on split level floors. Though open and airy it must be noted that the stairs will not suit those with mobility problems or extremely young children. The rooms are divided into a self catered apartment, suites, superior balcony rooms and standard rooms. All attempt to draw inspiration from Perehara themes and come with standard features such as air conditioning, a flat screen with satellite channels, 24 hour room service, tea/coffee making facility, internet, hair dryer and a safe.

This self catered apartment is offered to guests for medium to longer periods of stay. The expansive apartment comes with its own living and dining area, bar, Jacuzzi, study and a fully equipped kitchen. It is well suited to writers, journalists, honeymooners or even corporate travelers wishing to live as if at their own home, with absolute freedom and privacy.


Theva has its own sauna and infinity pool for recreation. The deck by the pool and the elegant pool side bar are ideal for sunbathing or sipping sundowners by the water. The cuisine is of the fusion variety with both eastern and western gourmet dishes. Meals are a la carte and everyday a new set menu is also featured. They can be taken at your penthouse apartment or in the dining hall.


The city of Kandy has much to offer in itself as a place of culture and heritage. You can explore the UNESCO World Heritage city and take a tour of the Temple of the Tooth- the primary reason for receipt of this accolade. Kandy also stands as a gateway of sorts to the hill country and can whisk you away to other places as well. For a full list of our hill country activities, visit our destination profile.
