Theva Residency: Redefining Luxury on the Hills


During the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have been pushed to reflect on understanding and re-interpreting “luxury”. Therefore, Theva Residency has taken the necessary steps to redefine our philosophy keeping in mind of what is happening in the world and how we can work in harmony with nature to provide a refreshing soulful experience to you. We will be focusing on your mental and physical and emotional wellbeing. We will be offering an experience to refresh your mind, body and soul. 

The Theva Residency will be the first “Meat Free Boutique Hotel” in Kandy. Feast on the food made by our Resident Chef and his team to produce a range of culinary delights; a fusion of East and West, new and old. The Kitchen Team has curated a menu with more nutritional and immune boosting food using our local indigenous herbs, spices, vegetables and fruits using traditional local forms of preparation. We will be catering for the pescatarian diet. 

Theva Residency promises serenity, romance and rejuvenation. The location of The Theva Residency is a treat for nature lovers, who will be able to enjoy the beautiful variety of flora and fauna, the endless views of mountain terrain and fresh air. 

We feel that your stay with us should be primarily catered to your health and wellbeing and maintaining your immunity is key during these times. 

Step into your haven, to be greeted with a warm Theva smile followed by a “welcome drink” of Coriander and Juggary which keeps your immunity strong and protected. 

Step into your room with unparalleled valley views and an incredible sense of peace and serenity. 

For the few who venture out of their rooms, Theva offers the option of swimming laps in the infinity pool, soaking up the sun at the poolside or sitting at the open-air deck for an early drink, as the sun disappears over the hills opposite. 

Theva is a short distance from the lush Hantana Rainforest, with its rivulets, streams and abundance of animal and plant life - an ideal destination for bird-watchers and those interested in trekking. 

Theva Team is taking steps forward in creating a more holistic philosophy, in offering a place for you to “enjoy your experience showing compassion towards animals and the environment and yourself”. We would like to create a meaningful experience with a more emotional connection with you. 

You may not be able to travel at the moment, but while you are now dreaming of your next holiday to Sri Lanka, we hope you will visit us on the hills of Kandy to rejuvenate and unplug to refresh your soul and boost your immunity! 

The mountains are calling and I must go, to refresh my mind, body and soul…
