Stays can cost as little as £19 and with the added luxury of playing with puppies, it’s no wonder the Insta-worthy hotel is so popular with guests.The puppies are donated by the Bali Dogs Association rescue charity – an organisation the hotel gives money to.
The free therapy sessions take place twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 1.30 and 3.30pm.
Some of the other amenities offered by the hotel include free daily yoga classes and free massages by the pool.
On its website, it says: ‘Here at Puri Garden, you will meet like-minded travellers from all over the world, looking to make the most of their adventure. ‘Enjoy a drink by the pool, read a book in our hammocks or join one of our activities. Centre yourself around the garden and it’s hard to find yourself at a loss with no one to talk to.’ Live music, barbecues, and traditional Balinese dances are also part of the hotel’s charm.
INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOUR PET: The red-eared slider is one of the most popular pet turtles in the United States. They grow to be a foot long and can live for up to 20 years.
Users on Instagram said the initiative was ‘bloody brilliant’ while reviewers on Hostelworld shared similar sentiments.
One person wrote: ‘Staff are very friendly and helpful, the dorms are very clean and with massive beds. Love the bbq nights and the day trips organised by them. My favourite activity was the puppy day!’
