Theva Residency, Sri Lanka

The Sacred Temple of the Tooth Relic with its saffron robed monks. Devales and monasteries. A sacred lake with cormorants, pelicans, fish eagles and egrets. A national museum that was once a harem. The turbulent old market. A preserved 15th century royal forest. There is much to delight and astonish you in the ancient Sinhalese capital of Kandy.

But make The Theva part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Sri Lanka and you’ll be perfectly placed to revel in the cool hillside air above the busy city. You’ll be close to the Hanthana Rainforest, and just a tuc tuc ride from the placid greenness of a Tea Plantation and museum. You’ll also be treated to all the serenity and comfort of a sophisticated modern Sri Lankan boutique hotel.
