Sometimes you need a staycation with your best pal…

For when a day at a café just isn’t enough, we’ve rounded up a list of hotels where pets are welcomed all year round. It’s a great way to reward and pamper your pet for its good behaviour. Just make sure you tell the hotels you’re bringing them along.

Here are 8 pet-friendly hotels to take your pet for a complete family get-away… 

Radisson Red Dubai Silicon Oasis


Radisson Red Dubai Silicon Oasis has been welcoming pets ever since it opened earlier this year at no extra charge. All you have to do is let them know that you are bringing your furry family member along in order for them to prepare the room with a doggy bed and food bowl. You can even take them along to all-day dining restaurant OUIBar + Terrace or take them out for a stroll nearby after their meals or maybe sniff around nearby Silicon Lake – just make sure you keep them on a leash.
