Stays for you and your pets to enjoy a holiday – together!
The gut-wrenching experience of saying “No! Stay!” to your pets as you leave the house with your bags packed, or worse, you are at a pet hostel, dropping your fur baby off just because the hotel you booked has a No Pets policy in place. Every pet owner has been through this.
Some of us try to cheer up by looking at famous dogs and cats on Instagram, holidaying in exotic locations. This sadness needs to end here and so we are here with some of the best accommodation options in India that are pet-friendly.
