Kandy, Sri Lanka
A Gem in the HillsI was invited for a stay at a boutique hotel in the Kandy known as ‘The Theva Residency'.
Glistening atop the splendor of the ‘Hantane’ hills with idyllic views of the Kandy town and surrounding mountains, the journey to Theva Residencies was a comfortable three hour drive from Colombo. I was startled by the designer’s keen eye to detail using exquisite elements of the Kandy Perehara for a stylish interior.
We were ushered away to our suite on the second level of the tastefully designed boutique hotel. Our suite ‘Thuna’ (3) was equipped with superior amenities including an indoor Jacuzzi and endless views of the Kandy town and mystical hills surrounding it.
The views from the infinity edged pool are priceless. A picturesque marvel complemented by a lounge where you could indulge in a sassy cocktail and conversation.
Theva Residencies takes great pride in preparing the ‘perfect’ dish to suit every palate. The a la carte menu had a combination of Sri Lankan, Thai, Mexican, Indian and Western cuisine, giving guests an array of options to choose from, for all three meals. We dined under the stars at the dining terrace. We also learned that dinner/lunch reservations can be accommodated. So if you’re heading to Kandy, make sure you stop by for a scrumptious meal with your friends or folks.
Each dish was so well prepared that it was hard for me to dig-in, but luckily, those feeling lasted merely a few seconds.Every dish I tried was scrumptious !
