Scenic lo­cales and po­etry go hand in hand. Who can en­joy the bu­colic beauty of Lake District with­out spout­ing Wordsworth or soak in the gothic grandeur of Ed­in­burgh un­in­flu­enced by Burns’ rhymes? Closer home, in gor­geous Galle, The Owl and The Pussy­cat ho­tel – in­spired by the hu­mor­ous poem of the same name by 19th-cen­tury English poet Ed­ward Lear – puts that con­nec­tion to good use in its quaint lit­tle bo­hemian bou­tique ho­tel snug­gled away amidst rock pools, wild beaches, ba­nana plan­ta­tions and plenty of sun. If the spec­tac­u­lar sun­sets by iso­lated beaches don’t make po­ets of you or your beloved, the ho­tel’s Valen­tine’s Day three-night pack­age will. It in­cludes break­fast, a pic­nic bas­ket to en­joy at the ho­tel’s se­cret beach hide­away, a bike ride through Sri Lanka’s green fields, a cook­ing class to dis­cover lo­cal cui­sine and din­ner by the beach.
