One of Sri Lanka's newest boutique hotels, the 16-suite Owl and the Pussycat Hotel is the latest to join the Small Luxury Hotels of the World collection.

Located near the UNESCO listed historic Galle Fort and Buddhist temples, the hotel provides access to an unparalleled authentic Sri Lankan experience with an imaginative twist.

Each spacious suite is a little different, but guests can expect eye-catching artwork, vivid colours and panoramic sea-views in every one.

Designed by New York architect Udar Dhar, it houses furniture, colourful textiles and artwork hand-made by 20 artists from all over the world, including local craftsmen.
