Sitting just 10 minutes outside of Kandy, Theva is a contemporary hotel that offers commanding views of the surrounding mountains. There’s an infinity pool, a sauna and a fantastic restaurant serving western, Sri Lankan and Mexican cuisine. In total there are 15 rooms; these are glassy, modern and sun-filled. Expect to find crisp sheets, brightly coloured soft furnishings and contemporary art work. They are not brilliantly luxurious; instead we found them comfortable and contemporary and perfect for a couple of nights. We feel the Superior Rooms are the ones to go for as these are really light and bright and also have a balcony. Theva is a perfect option for couples as they don’t actively encourage children. We think it’s a great base for exploring Kandy and its surroundings.
