Pet-friendly Hotels in Thailand + Mini Reviews

Updated: Nov 8, 2020

There are not many pet-friendly hotels in Thailand, but luckily you, you found this post. Some hotels are flexible enough to provide that option for animal lovers who treat their pets like a member of the family. By pets, I mean dogs and cats and not all kinds of pets.


I own a long-haired chihuahua mix (Taiwanese-Japanese chihuahua,) so fortunately there are a bit more options for us compared to the medium-sized and larger dogs. Bare in mind that most places that do allow pets in Thailand are either, frankly, not the nicest places, or they are 4/5 stars hotel chains that are more than I would like to pay for. However, the places we have been to are pretty nice (through an extensive research of course!) So here I have made a list of Pet-friendly Hotels in Thailand, I hope you find it useful : )

Our dogson, Sachi carrying his own treat bag ; )

Note that we don't have a car, so our transportation method is usually a van from Victory Monument to all these locations. Sachi stays in his carrier bag, don't worry about him or other passengers, he is a seasoned well-behaved traveler.


Note: Before you make your booking, make sure to call and/or e-mail that the hotel is in fact pet-friendly. Pet-friendly policies could change at any time, especially in non-chain hotels, and pricing/ availability varies with the size/ breed of your pet.


K.B. Resort, Koh Chang

I LOVE this place! Not only was it easy to book the room, there was no surcharge for Sachi. This was a truly dog-friendly place, and not the kind that put up with your pet(s) for a marketing niche. The staff were animal lovers and we felt so comfortable there. The hotel ambiance was much nicer than I expected, for 2,000 baht a night (as of May 2013) we got a beachfront villa! I know it's more like a hut, but hey that’s what they called it. I may as well call it a beachfront paradise.


The food on the premise was good. The view was amaziiiiiing. We also got to kayak to nearby island and it was such a memorable experience. Supposedly in the morning (before 9 am,) you can also walk to the nearest island. The plus point is there is always a convenient store nearby and plenty of food available in a walkable distance.


Even if you don't have pets, I would highly recommend this place for all types of travelers.


Cave Cliff Tarzan River Kwai Resort, Kanchanaburi

Our awesome tree house

I don’t know how I stumbled upon this place but it surely was a unique experience. I have always wanted to stay in a tree house so it was really neat that the only room available for that long weekend happened to be one. The dog-friendly tree house was around 1,700 baht with a 300 baht dog surcharge (as of Feb 2013.)


The view was nice, the food was delicious: some menus better than others. The toilet on the tree house was tiny (kid size) and it was not the most convenient bathroom. It was an interesting experience nevertheless, the kind you could laugh about it afterwards.


If you don’t have a car it would be near impossible to go anywhere but to hire a crappy (and unsafe) two-row seated truck (สองแถว.) The price was quite steep, 300 baht from city bus station to the hotel, the ride was about 10 minutes. If you're looking for a unique rustic experience, I would recommend this Tarzan Resort.


Centara Chantalay, Trad

Centara Chantalay is probably the nicest pet-friendly hotel we have ever been to. This was a special deal I bought, and it was about 2,000 baht per night. The room was a one bedroom suite and it was just a refreshing change to all the humble pet-friendly hotels we have been or have seen. The space was just divine with a lovely balcony, the hotel had a nice landscape for us to walk around and relax. The pool was beautiful, the beach was a long private beach.


We don’t have a car so we stayed at the hotel the entire time.  The bad part was the food. Because it was a 4-5 stars hotel chain, the food was not cheap. I have seen reviews that this hotel has bad food, and bad food was indeed confirmed. I would say just stick with the simple Thai dishes and don’t get fancy, because the price gets fancy but the food doesn’t.


Lung Wang Wonderland, Koh Samed

Sachi relaxing on the beautiful beach of Ao Chor (อ่าวช่อ)

The water on Ao Chor was BEAUtiful, crystal clear blue-ish water that I ADORE, surprising since it was only 2 hours-ish from Bangkok (it was in December, the peak season.) We have been to another beach on Samed that was more hi-end (Ao Prao) and the water there was just not comparable. The hike to nearby beaches with Sachi were awesome, and going there in December the weather was PERFECT. Highly recommend this part of Samed, for the beautiful water, more quiet and natural scenery.


Now, the accommodation was a piece of crap to say the least. The bed was not at all comfortable, the bathroom was awful, I could go on. Our hut was originally 3,000 baht, we got it down to 2,500 baht (as of Dec 2011,) and that’s not cheap. Nevertheless, Thailand is not a pet-friendly country, and I was appreciative that at least there was that option for us.

The balcony upstairs was nice, but that’s about it. All for you Sachi.

What a gorgeous beach that was, only a 10 minute hike from our hut.

Ibis Bangkok Riverside

This was a weekend getaway in Bangkok, at Ibis Riverside. The hotel chain is what it is, the room was small, simple, comfortable, and affordable. A standard room cost us 1,650 baht (July 2011.) The pool was very lovely, and the hotel located by the riverside provided a relaxing and calming ambiance. There was a small grassy area to walk Sachi around and that was nice.


The food was surprisingly good, I would recommend having dinner at the hotel. You can try several Thai dishes on a smaller serving, and we even thought about going back just for the food. It was the food PLUS the riverside view that made the dining experience all the better.

White@Sea, Rayong

The pet-friendly part of the hotel were the individual "bungalows" located throughout the garden area. The place was nice and cozy for a 1,200 baht per night (Feb 2011.) The hotel is across the street from Mae Rumpeung Beach. This particular beach is public and not the nicest, but you can have a long walk on the beach and enjoy many street side eateries.


There is a restaurant in front of the hotel and the food was pretty good. The surrounding area doesn’t have a nice view, and the environment is very basic. For the price tag, it’s not a bad deal at all for a doggie vacation.
