In Singapore, one of our favourite social activities is having a break from life, be it travelling or hiking. Now that we can’t travel out of Singapore, we are always trying to look for a staycay to get away from the hustle and bustle of life but a staycation for a pawparent is not complete without our babies. 

1. Amara Sanctuary Resort Singapore

3. Heavenly Glamping

If you want to try something unique other than staying in hotels, you can try glamping! It’s like camping but more atas and glamp, hence the name. So far, out of so many glamping companies, only Heavenly Glamping is pet-friendly and has a lock on the door if you want to take your pet on a walk. You have to contact them directly to check on what’s the prices of their tent and to double confirm if they are pet-friendly. You can also request for add-ons if you’re planning for anniversary or even birthday.

Couple Tent:

  • 1x 4M Bell Tent
  • 1x Queen Air Bed
  • Head Pillows & Cushions
  • Bedsheets & Pillow Cases
  • 2x Battery Operated Fans
  • 1x Mini Foldable Table
  • Indoor Fairylights

From my own knowledge, the couple tent would cost about $200 – $300 and you have to apply for a permit (free!) under NParks before the company can proceed on with planning the glamping.
