We had arrived in Kandy via the scenic train from Ella, though the great views didn’t stop with the train ride. High in the hillside Theva Residency has a view stretching across the entire valley of Kandy town below. A view accessible from the restaurant, infinity pool or in most cases from your room.
Our room was simply stunning. A modern stone finish bathroom with high pressure shower cleans off that road dust from travel. Into our hotel robes we dressed feet snug in the slippers. The minibar was tempting, instead we put on the in room kettle and made an exquisite tea. From the super king bed we looked past the Jacuzzi, through the window and out across the valley. Then back to the Jacuzzi… maybe after dinner.
A pamphlet welcomes you with all the information required not only about the hotel, but also of the place of interest around Kandy.
Our bight room was finished with some beautiful and authentic artworks, more stunning pieces can be found around the hotel. We explored the games room with pool table, and a selection of movies and board games. We found the steam room and sauna next to the infinity pool and finally found our chair at the restaurant for dinner.
With the sun already set the dark view was sports with glowing lights from the town below. Romantic and private. The food is little more expensive than the restaurants around town, though the experience is far greater than anywhere else. The chef creates marvellously fresh dishes, the chicken pesto pasta was mouth watering until the last lick. Bianca fajitas also went well past an regular Mexican. Content and satisfied we retired back to our gorgeous room.
Our morning was relaxed and slow. So comfortable we were than nothing was going to happen in a hurry. I put on the Jacuzzi and we slippers out if be and into warm bubbly water. Who said you can’t hot tub first thing in the morning. It’s one of the best wake ups I’ve ever had.
When we made it to our breakfast table a fresh pot of coffee and freshly baked breads where followed by fresh fruits and eggs Benedict. The staff asked us our plan for the day then proceeded to organise everything for us… perfect.
Before we left for the day we noticed a locals wedding photo shoot taking place, such is the beauty of this hotel.
