If playing with furry little ones in the name of relaxation and basking in the Bali sun by the pool sounds like your type of vacation, you’ll want to check out Puri Garden Hotel & Hostel in Ubud.

For two hours every Tuesday and Thursday, adorable rescue puppies from the Bali Dog Association, a nonprofit charity and rescue organisation, are brought in to play with guests by the pool. So in between catching some rays or reading a book on your hammock, you can squeeze in a cuddle or round of fetch with the playful pups.

The folks at Puri Garden will set up a secure penned area as well as toys for the ‘therapy’ session and the sweet experience is exclusively for staying guests.

Located in the heart of the tranquil ‘hood of Ubud, Puri Garden Hotel & Hostel offers cosy rooms and dorms (4-bed female or 8-bed mixed) for travellers seeking a relaxing getaway.
