Owl and the Pussycat

Owl and the Pussycat 4

Wonderfully relaxing and playfully fun; add this small luxury hotel to the top of your beach hideaway holiday list.

At the edge of golden sands lapped by the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka’s Owl and the Pussycat is a charmingly sweet boutique hotel. While stylish and chic, there’s also a sense of whimsy at this oceanfront property named after the Edward Lear poem by the same name – a favourite of the hotel’s owner. You could easily spend a year and a day here dining on really good food, swimming in the aquamarine pool or exploring the local area.

    Hotel Location

    Description, Services & Facilities

    Right on the water’s edge, the Owl and the Pussycat is a delightful mix of character, charm and comfort, doing away with glitz and glamour and instead focusing on the important details done exceptionally well. There’s plenty of room in the boutique rooms and suites, every one individually designed in bright tropical colours with sea views, large, comfortable beds, walk-in showers and quirky details – we love the embroidered owl and pussycat cushions. Food at beachfront The Runcible Spoon restaurant is really very good: delicious local specialties are sure to be a highlight and seafood is fresh and delicious. Within the grounds framed by palm and plum trees, a 17-metre long swimming pool looks over the Indian Ocean, complimentary yoga sessions are held twice a week, spa treatments can be arranged in a cabin on the beach and live jazz is played in the weekends. If you fancy a dip in the ocean, there’s a swimmable beach 100-metres down the road and the heritage fort-city of Galle a short tuk-tuk drive away.
