When money’s no object, there’s no limit to the level of extravagant pampering you can provide for your pup. It’s why there are hotels throughout the world catering to a dog’s every desire and demand, from queen size beds and poolside suites to gourmet menus. In these pup palaces, the world’s most indulged dogs can enjoy a spot of rest and relaxation in fabulous style.
Urban Tails, Dubai
Dubai’s not known for its understatement and in keeping with the “more is more” theme, Urban Tails makes for a glamorous environment for pups, beginning with a pet limo pick-up. Each guest is given their own suite that comes equipped with a personal television and webcam. In a city dedicated to partying, it only seems right that there’s a big focus on play time at Urban Tails. There are three indoor areas where dogs can let off steam, as well as a canopied garden and a pool where guests can take a relaxing dip with an inflatable.
The Barkley Pet Hotel, Cleveland, Ohio
Billed as a state-of-the-art five-paw property’, this hotel (one of four in the US and India) prides itself on treating every dog like a VIP. Pups can choose to stay in a leisure or serenity suite, unless they’d prefer a park-like environment or an executive poolside stay. There are pool parties in salt-purified water and a Pawsitively Posh grooming package with facial scrubs and lemongrass shampoos. If they’re peckish, they can book a chauffeured ride to the McDonald’s drive-thru or stay in their comfy canine surroundings and enjoy room service where steak is served on a golden plate before belly rubs and a bedtime story.
Essex Pooch Palace, Essex
The residents of Essex are known for their ultra-glam style, so it’s no surprise the fur babies at Pooch Palace enjoy a spot of relaxation in suitably bling surroundings. Each room is individually heated, with a TV and a sofa to snuggle on beneath their own crystal chandelier. There’s a pick-up and drop-off service, daily walks, weekend trips, as well as an on-site disco-themed dog spa where guests can get a full blow dry should they wish. There’s also a dog cinema where they can watch their favourite fur ball film and when it’s time to say goodbye, they’ll leave with their very own goodie bag.
The Wagington, Singapore
Where to begin with The Wagington? There’s the supervised swim sessions in the bone-shaped pool nestled in a charming courtyard, the W Salon and Spa with its extensive list of treatments ‘for fur and skin’, limo service, gourmet food, themed parties, bike rides and treadmill training for the ‘fitness enthusiast’ and luxurious suites to retire to after all of that relaxing. The most sumptuous of these is the aptly titled Royal Suite, with its queen size bed, mood-control lighting and a range of complimentary toys to ensure ‘a rarefied experience’ for its distinguished guests.
K-9 Resorts, United States
Dotted across the US, K9 Resorts provide executive rooms as well as the larger luxury suites for their most discerning visitors. Canine guests can look forward to pup privacy and a ‘sound resistant environment’ so there are no disturbances when they want some shut-eye. There’s also luxury dog bedding, in-suite entertainment for their viewing pleasure and a specially designed Blue Buffalo menu to suit the most delicate appetites. There’s also an outdoor yard where pups can enjoy one-on-one playtime or more social gatherings, depending on their personal preference.
Elmtree Canine Country Club, London
Sometimes it’s good to leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind, and here canine guests can enjoy a real countryside retreat. A chauffeur service ensures visitors arrive in style before they’re shown to their temperature-controlled private guest suite with creature comforts and their own TV. Activities are tailored to your dog’s individual needs, but there’s an indoor gym and assault course, as well as woodland walks for the more active lodgers, as well as grooming facilities and plenty of personal space for snoozing if visitors are looking for a more tranquil experience.
Luxe Pet Hotels, Las Vegas
Sin City’s all about extravagance and it’s no different at this hotel where every dog is treated like royalty. Guests can stay in celebrity or high roller suites equipped with a memory foam mattress, 42-inch TV and mood lighting. There’s also an onsite boutique store, a 3000sq ft play area, as well as an outdoor space with pools and cabanas for that Las Vegas pool party vibe. There’s an indoor gym, grooming pad, bottled water everywhere and the sort of fine dining experience you’d expect to see at any five-star resort.
