Some hotels in Bali are so luxurious you probably won’t even want to leave the place to go sightseeing. The Puri Garden Hotel is one of those as it has found the best way to keep guests wanting to spend their days on site. The Ubud-based hotel and hostel offers puppy therapy and honestly, what more could you want? Travellers and backpackers have been rushing to the boutique hotel which has been voted one of the most luxurious hostels in the world by Hostelworld. Guests can immerse themselves in Balinese culture or head to the Puri Garden for a ‘great atmosphere’ where they can play with little doggos.
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.
