5 Pet-friendly villas in Bali
Bali is a tropical paradise, filled with stunning beaches, hippy cafés, and some of the most fantastic hiking trails in Asia. This sounds like an amazing holiday plan. However, if you are wondering if Bali is a good place to travel around with your furry friends, the answer is YES! With plenty of pet-friendly cafés, accommodations and beaches available, it’s common to see travellers bringing their pets around Bali.
Can you bring your pets to Bali?
While it’s possible to bring your furry friend to some parts of Indonesia if you are from a rabies-free country, that is not the case in Bali at the moment. No pets are allowed to enter or leave Bali, and even if you manage to do so, getting them out of the island is also a long, tiring and costly process. The requirements for pets to enter and exit Indonesia are extremely strict. You may read more about pet passports here. However, if you’re residing in Bali and want to get a pet, check out the local adoption shelters! Pets are often not allowed in hotels. If you would like to bring them on your weekend trips, try to find an alternative instead. For those who are looking for a pet-friendly accommodation in Bali, I have compiled a list of pet-friendly villas in Bali for your next holiday (some villas even have their own pets in it!)
Villa Theo – Umalas
This villa has an open-plan living space and an expansive garden with a beautiful pool in the middle. From the pool, you will find a stair leading to a piece of lush green lawn. That means there are lots of space for your fur friend to run about and roll around! You can relax at the bale while playing fetch at the same time. The villa has five bedrooms, perfect for having a big family gathering. I heard that there’s a pet in this villa too… Check it out!
