Furry Friends get the VIP treatment

We love spoiling our pets and in today’s world, pets have luxurious options for deluxe treatments so much so that they’ve even got Instagram accounts to flaunt it. From independent luxury pet retreats, pet pamper packages to 5-star hotels offering pet-cation packages, pet-owners can look to pamper their furry friends in sheer comfort and luxury.

The Sybarite understands that it is not just the city-dwellers needing the downtime but our fuzzy companions might appreciate some spa-time of their own away from their owners at a place called The Pet Spa . They previously had their branch at Harrods in Knightsbridge, offering a fully-fledged pet spa service. Today, their 3000 square foot spa is located in Chelsea, offering one-of-a-kind services which means your pet could indulge in a bubble bath while having a massage to release tense muscles or a blueberry and vanilla facial which includes your pet getting their face scrubbed to cleanse, soothe and balance whilst ending up with a head massage. Besides pampering, The Pet Spa offers wellness packages including physiotherapy, reiki healing (should you think your pet may have some emotional issues that need tending to) to personalised consultations — truly an all-in-one pet pampering and wellness haven. If you are looking for all-out luxury retreats, then The Barkley Pet Hotel & Spa in California might just be it. This Pet Hotel facility provides overnight accommodations to long stay accommodations – your pet can expect to be hosted with comfortable bedding, continuous fresh water, breakfast and dinner service, 24-hour supervision whilst being surrounded by relaxing music.  If that wasn’t enough, let your pet be pampered with the hotel’s Celebrity Package, which includes teeth brushing, pawdicure, mud mask , a facial and head massage. Or if you’re one who loves styling your pet, then why not try Paw of Luxury , where they offer a full styling service of your choice – feel free to bring in a photo of what you’d like your pet to look like.

You would be surprised to know that some major hotels offer pet-pampering packages, take for example, the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London  offering their ‘St Pancras Pooch City Break Package’ which includes accommodation in a Chambers Grand Junior Suite where your pet will sleep in a luxurious Charley Chau dog-bed, a butler service, treats and toys, VIP membership to the pet salon and a 2-hr training session. Or five-star hotel Cliveden House  in Berkshire, a pet-friendly hotel that offers Doggie Breaks where your pet will be looked after with treats, bedding and a dog menu. A hotel that understands how important it is to be with your pets during vacation is the Milestone Hotel in London , providing an exclusive Pet Service which could include custom made Milestone Hotel pet bed, a “do not disturb/pet sleeping” card, fresh mineral water, turndown treats and if it’s your pets birthday, well, they’ve got a birthday celebration service on offer too. For cat owners looking for luxury accommodation, The Kings, a luxury cat hotel boasts 12 luxurious suites and come with a 5-star experience. Imagine designer bespoke wrought iron 4 poster beds with cut glass crystal balls and the softest cotton bedding with goose feather cushion in each room with things to distract like virtual fish tank.

What could be better? The choices seem endless and pretty paw-fect.
