This hotel is to be avoided at all costs. We’d initially intended to stay for 3 nights but checked out after the first. Why? Because the hotel was a complete rip-off!! The room decor looked incomplete, our bathroom shared a window with another room that was frequented by hotel staff (such that I didn’t know when it was ‘safe’ to take a shower), the sofa cover in our room was covered with stains, and the list goes on. When told about our displeasure, the management made no apologies. Thanks to George, our driver (who we hired for the first 5 days of our 9-day trip) we managed to secure a room for the next 2 nights at another way-more-comfortable hotel at much much lower rates! We stayed at numerous hotels during our stay in Sri Lanka, and Theva would be the only hotel that we’d never return to / recommend.
- 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
