The new Hanrob Pet Hotel is set to open July 1 at Melbourne International Airport’s Tullamarine terminal, an AU$4 million project which has taken five years to complete.
The hotel, which is the second in the Hanrob chain following an opening at Sydney airport, promises a limousine service to collect passengers, their luggage and their pets, dropping humans off at departures and pets at the Hanrob to begin their stay.
The hotel offers ten “ultimate luxury” dog suites complete with private courtyard, toys and television, kennels and “cat condos” for feline companions to stay in.
During the day, activities for dogs including a training program and exercise activities, along with playtime hours with other dogs and grooming sessions.
Luxury pet hotels are becoming increasingly popular among pet owners as an alternative to the traditional kennels, with many owners admitting that they would rather take their animal with them than leave it at home.
The Best Friends Pet Care Resort, which operates 40 pet resorts across the US, last year announced the opening of a 300-pet high-profile facility at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, catering for families unable to leave their furry friends behind.
The resort, equipped to service dogs, cats, pocket pets, small mammals and birds, features a 226-square-foot (21 square meters) VIP suite, a private dog park with its own water feature and a grooming salon.
