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 .
