Owl and Pussycat

One of the newest boutique hotels in the country, the Owl and the Pussycat was inspired by the famous Edward Lear poem and aims to take you back to simpler times and colourful imagination. This is reflected in the artwork and bright antiques that dot the interiors and every room has its own unique character and style. The hotel is located near to Galle and the lovely beach of Unawatuna (10 minutes by tuk-tuk), so there are some great day trips. If you don’t fancy venturing, the pool does the trick.
