Sri Lanka, Kandy and Around
Info : Theva Residency
Nestled on the slopes of the Hantana range high above the city of Kandy, Theva Residency Kandy offers modern laid back luxury with fantastic west facing views of Kandy and the surrounding valleys. These views can be enjoyed throughout the hotel, whether from the balcony of your room, the stylish restaurant and patio or the infinity pool and the poolside bar.
15 minutes from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, Theva Residency Kandy is a hugely relaxing place from which to enjoy the sites and sounds of the capital of the Sri Lankan hill country. The building and its interior are contemporary and stylish whilst the rooms and furnishings are light and minimalist. All have a balcony or a large window.
We advise an upgrade to one of the large superior rooms with their private balconies, each fitted with an outdoor Jacuzzi. With a few splashes of bright colours, these rooms are cool and light with white from floor to ceiling. While the deluxe rooms are nice and comfortable, they are quite compact and do not have a balcony. All rooms come with a flat screen television, broadband internet and 24 hr in-room dinning.
The chic communal areas at Theva Residency Kandy provide a lovely setting in which to sit back and enjoy the stunning scenery. The pool is beautiful and the food is a good fusion of west and east.
Deluxe - This is our first really 'upmarket' category. It might be a beautiful tiny hotel with very limited facilities or a 5* resort hotel with all the trimmings; but any hotel in this category will be a well-run establishment with very comfortable rooms, a strong service ethos and excellent food.
It was clear that Nick was immensely knowledgeable about Sri Lanka and we felt his overall service to assist in identifying the type of holiday we required was superb. All places we stayed in were brilliant but, for novelty value, the Mudhouse was one of the most memorable. From pick-up to departure we can only say that out guide and driver was absolutely magnificent. Always helpful, smiling, knowledgeable we became good friends over the two weeks.
