New Luxury Hotel For Dogs Opened in Gurugram; Suites Equipped With Velvet Beds and Non-Alcoholic Beers for Pets
From watching movies and dining out to pampering oneself with fine spirits and spa, every experience for humans has been made uber luxurious. And now, this luxe life can be enjoyed by dogs too! A new hotel in Gurugram, called Critterati, claims to be South Asia’s first luxury hotel for dogs. The hotel offers suites with velvet beds at up to $70 per night for pets. That apart, the luxury hotel boasts a relaxing spa, 24-hour medical care and non-alcoholic beers imported from Belgium.
Wealthy “parents” who wish to indulge their pets – including breeds such as St Bernards, Labradors and Lhasa Apsos – can now head to this luxury hotel. Chief executive officer Deepak Chawla opened Critterati in Gurgaon to offer a more luxurious alternative to those who want to give the best to their pets, state news reports. According to an NDTV report, the top-range Critterati suite comes equipped with a giant bed and a velvet headboard, television and a private dog-flap leading onto a balcony. There is also a swimming pool, a spa with Ayurvedic massage oils and a vet on 24-hour call. In addition, a medical unit with operating theatre is being built.
When the pet is hungry, he can head to the dog cafe that serves rice and chicken. The menu also includes muffins, pancakes and ice-cream — with bacon and vanilla a particular favourite — to satiate their sweet cravings. All of these can be washed down with non-alcoholic dog beer from Belgium. But what about the poop? The hotel owners have taken care of that too! Chawla says that in standard kennels, pets can be left alone for long hours. In contrast, at Critterati, the day starts at 7.00 am, with potty breaks, then breakfast and then a “giant potty break”. It is then followed by play sessions for two hours, swimming sessions and then time at the cafe.
Dogs have often been called the best friends of humans and have been known for their loyalty to their owners, and Critterati offers a way to indulge, pamper and reward them. As Chawla puts it, his “guests” are worth the best.
