Owl and the Pussycat Hotel - luxury hotel in galle

Most Instagrammable - SLH Awards 2017

Where rolling surf meets the rocky reef, and lush greenery opens to clear skies, lies the Owl and the Pussycat Hotel. In a luxury spot, this whimsical retreat is made for daydreaming. Recline on your private terrace or indulge in an aromatic massage beside the pool. As the sun sets, settle down in the Beach Shack for a Sri Lankan twist on classic cocktails.

Bedrooms are a contemporary mix of polished concrete, cool calicoes and handcrafted details. Kitchens are fully kitted out and stocked with whatever you wish, making each suite a home. Vibrant pops of colour rival the tropical flora of the gardens. While wide windows and expansive terraces reveal breathtaking horizons.

Poised on the ocean edge, it’s just a short hop from the hotel to soft sands and cool waters. Unwind in the shade under the palms or explore the coastline on a tuktuk. In nearby Galle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you’ll get a heady dose of Sri Lankan culture. Back on the tranquil terraces of the Owl and the Pussycat, a drink in the quirky drawing room is the ideal end to the day.
