5 luxury pet-friendly hotels
There’s nothing quite like booking in a luxury escape to one of the world’s most decadent hotels. The promise of indulgence and relaxation beckons you but something is holding you back – the fact that you have to leave your beloved pet behind at a less-than-five-star kennel or with a reluctant relative.
While pet-friendly holiday parks and resorts are becoming a ‘thing’ these days, there is no need to give up your dreams of luxury. These five hotels combine your love of furry creatures with their five-star amenities.

Pets are fully catered for with the ‘Pet Room Service Menu’ featuring dishes made from fresh produce (with none of those nasty dog-allergy ingredients). The pups will love ‘Lassie’s Favourite’ (Beef Steak with Chunky Vegetables) and kitties will love ‘Meow Meow’ (Grilled Salmon with Green Beans, Quail Egg, Tuna, Potatoes & Olives), which they can enjoy from their custom Langham food and water bowls. Pet-sitting and dog-walking services are available on request and after a long day they can relax on their very own custom-made Langham plush bed and snack on their gourmet treats.
