Owl and the Pussycat Hotel & Restaurant

Located at the edge of the ocean waters of Talpe, on the fringes of the heritage city of Galle, the ‘Owl and the Pussycat Hotel & Restaurant’ is a luxury boutique stay.

Best Known For

Inspired by the hotel’s namesake poem written by Edward Lear in 1871, this boutique hotel in Talpe mixes elements of the tranquil, social, romantic and unpretentious. Deep pastels and bohemian hues, seafarer inspired designs, hand-crafted artworks and native-vibes-meet-European-style décor, add a splash of glamour to Talpe’s holiday canvass.

The Experience

The seaside bolthole’s quirky guestroom retreats are distributed in 4 stunning buildings; the Blue, Beige, Pink and Yellow. From suites with an ocean-view terrace or balcony, living area and kitchen; rooms opening onto sun-bedded terraces and a pebble-patioed room - to an elegant penthouse with sea-view seating spaces - ravishing accommodation choices are on offer.

Local market produce and ocean’s fresh catch meet Sri Lankan and international recipes at this beach hotel’s seafront dining retreat, ‘The Runcible Spoon’. The palm-shaded ‘Beach Shack’ stirs up classical cocktails alongside delicately-spiced tropical drinks.

An ocean-gazing swimming pool beckons in the gardens while the quirky-chic drawing room carries board games and book selections. The seaside therapy hut treats one to relaxing rituals amidst the calming sounds of the ocean.

Around and About

Located approximately 10-KM from the atmospheric historic city of Galle, Talpe enjoys a serene, laid-back vibe. Surf or snorkel the nearby ocean waters of Unawatuna. Explore the colonial ramparts and structures of the Galle Fort.

‘Talpe’, a cocoon of calm and serenity to escape to, when life gets a little too busy for your liking…
