Luxury Pet Hotel Chain is Pet Paradise  luxury-dog-cat-boarding-australia

We didn't really intend to write about a pet hotel that isn’t in our own backyard, but we couldn't resist telling you about this luxury pet hotel chain in the USA.  As I read the list of decadent amenities available at this heavenly pet resort, a voice in the back of my head kept telling me to book it – for me, not the fur kids. Honestly, it sounded better than some of the human all-inclusives I’ve been perusing lately! 


Location, Location, Location

Let’s start with the pure genius locations - next to the three largest airport hubs in the USA. Park in their on-site car park and enjoy a free shuttle to and from the airport. Or, if you’re in a rush, use the Boarding Lounge for quick pet drop-off and pick-up when time is of the essence.

Each resort is a minimum of 25,000 square feet, and features large grass indoor play areas, bone-shaped in-ground splash pools for the  doggies, and an adventure jungle full of safe climbing trees and a 'for viewing only' aquarium full of fish for the kitties. The resorts offer separate scaled-down wings for smaller dogs, and cats can choose from spacious, intelligently-appointed Deluxe, Executive and Presidential Bungalows complete with chandeliers, full-length mirrors and a private water fall!


Spa time, slumber parties & nightly turn-down service

Pampering your pets is foremost at this pet resort chain. Book Princess a relaxing spa day that could include a hot oil massage therapy treatment followed by a mud bath, pawdicure or designer haircut. Later, watch her dine on fine foods pre-selected by you, via closed- circuit cameras accessible to you anywhere in the world, 24-7.

Nightly tuck-in service complete with a bedtime story sees kitties and pooches settling down for a good night’s sleep in their own suite featuring a flat screen TV, superior quality bedding and a bedtime cookie for good measure! If your dog doesn’t want to be alone at night, the resort offers slumber party lounges where pooches can meet up and (ahem!) sleep together – supervised, of course! Even if you’re not travelling, your pet can enjoy a visit to this pet resort for daily daycare as well as training, a vet visit or a special event such as a Christmas party or doggie birthday parties.

None of this comes cheap, of course. Daily rates are comparable to a human stay at a decent hotel. But for some, the knowledge that their pet has the luxury of on-site veterinary assistants, professional pet first aid-certified attendants and industry-leading sanitizing systems and fine dining, money is no object. Leave it to the Americans to take pet boarding to a new level of decadence, and for those who have the bucks, I say why not?


Australian Pet Resorts who are leading the way

Back to sniffing out our own turf….It should be no surprise that Australia is a nation of pet lovers. But did you know that according to a survey by Roy Morgan Research, a higher proportion of us live in households with a dog and/or cat than with a child? Pet ownership is up to a whopping 50% in Australia. The good news for us pet lovers is that we are quickly catching up with our US counterparts when it comes to ‘no expense spared’, luxury pet boarding services available for our dear little fluff balls.  We have errmmm, dug up a few examples for you to purr-ruse. So if you’re looking for ‘all out’ luxury accommodation ideas for your fur kids, then have a look at the ‘useful links’ section below to see if we can help you find them?
