Ever wished you could bring your pets along to a short weekend staycation? Well, these awesome animal-loving hotels in the city let you do so.
Pet owners know this too well; you’re dying for a short weekend getaway, but you’re also reluctant to be away from your adorable furry kids. Besides taking them out to dog-friendly restaurants on your days off or relying on pet-sitters when you’re abroad, try a staycation with Fido at pet-friendly hotels in the city. Yes, they exist! Here are a couple of kick-ass hotels that open their doors for you and your four-legged BFF(s)…
Spanning across 30 acres of luscious greenery, the stunning resort successfully synthesises colonial charm with modern sophistication. With three pools and Palawan Beach a short walk away, it’s a place where you can lounge all day with your pooch. Plus, the hotel offers are plenty of open spaces around the property for your loyal four-legged chums to run around.

Another world-class pick that’s a quick drive away from the picturesque Botanic Gardens, Regent Singapore is a great place to stay with your furry friend if you’d like to stick semi-close to Orchard Road but far enough to avoid the maddening crowds. We love the fact that this swish, pet-friendly hotel even provides a tiny bed and goodies for your fur baby.

For an absolute R&R weekend, look no further than Amara Sanctuary. With the the Pampered Paws package, guests can relax with their furry pals – the star accommodation offers rooms that are conveniently located away from the tourist hordes and directly open up to the swimming pool. Bear in mind, though: Only one pet that weighs no more than 7kg (sorry, big boys) are allowed on its premises for no additional fee. Be sure to have your fur baby with you at all times, except for these no-pet zones: The gym, swimming pool area and the Sentosa shuttle service.

With InterContinental Singapore’s Purr-fect Weekends hotel package, you and your pooch can stay in a Peranakan-inspired room (aka the Heritage Room) for some well-deserved bonding time. But do take note that they are not allowed in the hotel gym, swimming pool area, lounge or restaurants, and they have to be leashed or in a carrier when exploring the hotel premises. But with exciting ‘hoods in the vicinity like Little India and Kampong Glam, you can head out anytime with your pet for a fun adventure.

The Wagington is, unfortunately, not open to humans. Strictly for felines and canines only, this luxury boutique hotel for pets offers four different suites: The Royal, Superior, Junior and Garden. For the pups, they get to enjoy a queen-sized bed with micro-suede bedsheets and quilt, a 32-inch led TV for entertainment, and complimentary fitness walks and swims. Meanwhile, felines get a premier cat condo that comes with a scratch post, soothing classical music and carpeted floors. Each room is kitted out with a high definition IP camera, so you can rest assured the hotel staff will be keeping an eye on your pets at all times. The place also has a spa service, bone pool and daycare for pups (all of which are open to the public).
