We’ve once reported on our NATAS Exclusive Insights , Now , surprising or not , even your pets can go on a holiday like you – only that they don’t take aeroplane when you do and they might even have bulter service , which you won’t get either.

Nope , we aren’t talking about ” NeoLodge ” also referred as Neopets hotel where you really pay some virtual coins for those hotel with different class and choosing the needs and comfort level and checking if your pet is having their great time over the spa or food ! :)

Pet hotel is now trending in-house , setting up a booth at the NATAS Travel Fair to woo travellers who need an accommodation that is comfortable enough for their furry companions while away on vacation.

Petopia, a pet-wellness centre in Seletar Hills Estate is offering exclusive holiday itineraries, beach outings and scented air-conditioned rooms with piped music for your exclusive beloved pets.

What’s better , Owners can even check on their loved onces on a mobile webcam service – that’s like you arent too far away from them .

“We see a potential market for people who want their pets to check-in at a premium place when they go on holiday,” said Mr Marcus Khoo, 37, executive director of Petopia.

“Some of our patrons have confided that their dogs have come back traumatised, with bad skin conditions, after staying at other boarding places.

They don’t mind paying a bit more if their pets are well taken care of,” he added.

Petopia, which already has a mind-boggling array of spa treatments, such as microbubble baths, clay packs and reiki sessions, wants to add a creative activity to its daycare services: A four-hour beach outing for poochie.

“We’re trying to be creative, but we need critical mass to cover costs,” said Mr Khoo.

As more travelers streamed out of the country during holidays and vacations , even the Occupancy at the pet hotel peaks during popular travel periods – now , your pets need a real vacation too .

Between May and July, occupancy can reach 70 per cent at Petopia’s hotel premises, which can accommodate up to 28 dogs.

The next peak will be from October to February next year, said Mr Khoo. Some patrons have even made bookings for the Chinese New Year period.

“We’ve observed that people don’t just travel during school holidays and long weekends nowadays. They can take the entire week off if a public holiday falls in that week,” noted Mr Khoo.

A night at Petopia ranges from $35 for a 75cm by 75cm tiled enclosure, to $75 for a premium room about the size of a bathroom in a Housing Board flat , depending on how well you’re gonna treat your loved little onces .

Current promotion that Petopia provides for NATAS Travelers for your next trip will be as follows :

Watch a video below , to experience the services that your beloved onces will enjoy – if you put them there , while enjoying your vacation with a peace of mind !

    1. I prefer to send my pet to the pet hotel if I am on a vacation because I can definitely enjoy my trip. Not that I don’t trust my maid, but it’s better to let my pet being taken care of by professionals or allow it to be pamper once in a while.

    1. I will prefer Pet Hotel to take care of my pet while I was not around because compared to pet hotel, my maid wasn’t professional and my maid may make things worst if anythings happen to my pet. I want my pet can also have a great holiday like me when I was on holiday, so, Petopia will be my choice. The most important is Petopia provide mobile webcam service that allow me to check on my beloved pet, this let me feel that my pet aren’t too far away from me.

    2. I think I wouldn’t care how much I should pay for this of good services since my pet can get to enjoy their great holiday in Petopia.

    3. Yes, I love contest world since the day I ‘like’ contest world’s page because they keep giving their fans surprise everyday! I love them more when contest world is the FIRST fan page to organize contests and give fans a toilet break. haha. I think contest world is also a pet lover since they got giveaway for their fan’s beloved pets.

    (1) I will definitely choose PET HOTEL as I want my pet to receive the best professional caring service from the best professional team from PETOPIA. Moreover, I trusted more on Petopia professional team rather than my maid since the maid doesn’t have any professional knowledge on caring my pet. Somemore, my pet can enjoy itself in such a way that human enjoy themselves in high class hotel. In such an environment with high technology webcam service, I have no worry on leaving my dearest pet on holiday in PETOPIA as if i am away for work! It’s a great brilliant idea, PETOPIA! =)

    (2) Hmm… regarding the price, i would say depends on the service provided. Anyway, I am fully believe that the service provided by Petopia could be beyond any high class hotel outside there. Hence, i am willing to pay for the rate around RM50 per day. No problem to pay higher if the service is really nice =)

    (3) I LOVE CONTEST WORLD very very much! Firstly, Contest World is a great fan page in facebook that provides a lot of giveaways to reward us. Second, Contest World always entertains their fans with jokes and chats with us as well. And of course, Contest World gives us the opportunity to get know to a lot of new friends, not only from Malaysia, but include Singaporeans too! It’s really a great fan page to join!
    Contest World is PET LOVER as we are. You see, Contest World informs us the existence of PETOPIA to spread the good news for our dearest beloved PET! WE ARE PET LOVERS! =)

    1. Tell us , WHICH CHOICES YOU PREFER ? Your Maid or a Pet Hotel ? AND WHY ?
    I’m sorry but I will pick my maid although I do not have a maid at home. The reason I picked my maid is because he/she will be able to pay a 100% attention to my pet whenever I’m off to work/vacation. Thus, if my pet falls sick, he/she will be able to discover it immediately. However, is Pet’s Hotel able to guarantee that since they have so many pets to take care of in a day? On the other hand, frankly speaking, how many of us would be able to fork out RM50-RM100/day at least for that kind of service provided in pet hotel? Money is a big factor. I’m don’t mean to offend anyone here but if I do, I apologize and I’m sorry. That’s just my 2 cent anyway.

    2. How much will you be willing to afford for this kind of services ?
    I’m willing to pay at an affordable rate with comparison to my salary. :)

    3. Why do you LOVE Contest World So Much ? Are we pet lovers ?
    I love Contest World so much because it fills up my life with suprise everyday and moreover, they’re willing and generous enough to give us that kind of suprise. On the one hand, Contest World are also pet lovers because they shares this news with us pet lovers just to give our pets a better lifestyle.

    1.Sad to say but I gotta choose maid instead of a pet hotel, why because the maid knows the pet much better as compared to a pet hotel staff. She would know what kinds of food my pet would love, why are they making so much noise and most importantly how to keep my pet happy and satisfied. It all comes down to the sense of family, the maid spends everyday with the pet hence they become just like family as compared to a pet hotel where you just drop off the pet.

    2. Standard maid salary wage Rm400-Rm600(Indonesian) RM800-RM1000(Philippine)

    3. I love contest world as this past few weeks i have got an adrenaline rush like i never had before, staying up all day participating in fun contests. Nowadays the first webpage i open would be your Facebook page, and stay there for hours before doing something else. Contest World are super pet lovers! Why? Because you guys have your very own Facebook page dedicated to you own pets! Thats the way to show your love to your pets!
