With a whimsical name designed to evoke the idea of a couple falling in love, sailing away to a tropical island and dancing in the moonlight, The Owl and the Pussycat Hotel certainly stands out from the Galle crowd.
Split between four colourful buildings, the suites are scattered with handmade furniture, jewel-bright textiles, and art collected from all over the world. The effect is vibrant but homely, and undeniably relaxing; an eclectic beach idyll.
Leisure: outdoor pool, massage, yoga, lounge
Rooms: 17 suites
Combine the island’s top wildlife crowd pleasers with some magnificent hidden gems and cultural highlights before spending some time on the beach.
