Owl and the Pussy Cat
Galle

Owl and the Pussycat Hotel is one of the best independently owned luxury hotels in Galle, Sri Lanka. Perched at the water’s edge, it has 17 suites in which every detail is carefully crafted by hand, including the drawing room appropriately named after Edward Lear. The dining space is sprawled on an elegant terrace where you can indulge yourself in fine wines and light, fresh Sri Lankan food. The hotel provides several tailored relaxing experiences including the best massage in Galle on the edge of the ocean and private yoga as well as gym sessions. We highly recommend their dreamy beach shack!

The suits at the Owl and the Pussycat Hotel are created for a lavish stay in Galle. Spread over three floors - the garden level, the first and the second floor – the rooms are arranged in four unique and colourful buildings: the Blue, the Pink, the Yellow and the Beige. Their ocean-edge swimming pool is ideal for a dip in the evening after a long day of exploring the city. Their delightful beach shack sits under the swaying coconut trees is where their bartender can stir up a classic or spice it up with a Sri Lankan twist.

The hotel serves some of the best modern Sri Lankan cuisine in Galle. Their head chef specializes in delectable preparations of fresh fish and seafood and selects ingredients from the wide selection of fresh local produce. The staff will be happy to arrange a number of excursions for you including a village ride, aerial whale watching, lagoon fishing, visits to cinnamon plantations, Kenneliya rainforest and the ancient Buddhist Yatagala Rock Temple.

I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!

Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
