The design of the property is beautiful - great attention to detail. It is quirky yet elegant. The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. They allowed us to shower in a different room after we checked out of our room as we wanted to stay by the pool longer. However the twin beds were extremely uncomfortable. It felt as if there was no mattress and we were sleeping directly on wooden planks. For such a lovely hotel it was quite surprising that this was the case.

Oasis in Sri Lanka

The Owl and the Pussycat was the most amazing retreat. Every time we went out to explore local beaches or Galle we were more excited to return to the oasis that is OTP. The staff are wonderful and go out of their way to make sure guests are comfortable. I would go back to Sri Lanka just to stay at OTP again.
