Our Story - Owl and the Pussycat Hotel

Our small, luxury boutique hotel in Galle (Sri Lanka), sits at the water’s edge with 17 suites. We dreamed of a simple, fun and unpretentious place... with a sense of romance, food, and dancing in the moonlight. The place is tranquil, but social too. Every detail is lovingly restored and crafted by hand. This luxury 5 Star Hotel offers services designed to captivate the heart.

Owl and the Pussycat Hotel is an independently owned luxury hotel in Sri Lanka, inspired by an exuberant zest for life. We are a member of Pure Life Experiences. Our restaurant, The Runcible Spoon, is set on an elegant dining terrace with superb wines and light, fresh food, including modern Sri Lankan specialities. We cater to vegan, Jain and keto diets. Our flamboyant pastry chef will ensure you have sweet dreams. Enjoy delicately-spiced cocktails at the bar next to the waves, tropical birdsong in the trees and live jazz at weekends at our vibrant beach shack. In our garden, a 17-meter pool looks out onto the ocean. We have a small gym and a yoga platform for early sun salutes. In our sumptuously-appointed Edward Lear Drawing room, we invite hotel guests to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail or an after-dinner drink. This space can also be booked for a private dinner or a special event. Our friendly staff will arrange cars, airport transfers, and local sight-seeing or activities. We will take care of your every need to make your stay very special.

Inspired by the Poem "The Owl and the Pussy-cat" - Written by Edward Lear In 1871
