What's better than relaxing at a pool in Bali? When the pool also has adorable rescued puppies, duh!
The Puri Garden Hotel & Hostel, located in the beautiful village of Ubud, is offering puppy cuddles alongside your already great holiday.
You can stay at the hotel and hostel for around $36 a night, and if the puppies weren't enough, the accommodation also boasts outdoor yoga, gardens with hammocks and a gorgeous pool to cool off.
The Puri explains they want to create a ‘safe and great place to meet like-minded travelers from all over the world, who are all looking to take in the beautiful peaceful culture of Bali’- and doggos are a part of that!
Twice a week, Puri Garden staff offer ‘puppy therapy sessions’ by the pool, giving guests the opportunity to stroke and pet their cares away with a sweet bunch of rescue puppies.
The precious pups are taken to Puri Garden by the Bali Dogs Association rescue charity, which also benefits from the sessions as they receive donations from the hostel.
Hostel owner Daniel Silva says that not only do the guests and the charities benefit from the sessions, but so do the dogs saying:
"My guests are the ones making the puppies feel more at peace as many of them are very traumatised. The puppy therapy helps them to re-socialise and trust gain in humans as here in Bali lots of locals treat them very badly."
