5 luxury hotels around the world with animals in residence

From dogs to flamingoes, these five luxury hotels around the world house special guests in the form of animals and resident pets.

Pet-friendly hotels are not unheard of. Hotels with animals in residence, on the other hand, is a somewhat obscure concept. In case this is the first you’re hearing of this and you’re wondering what this is, it is exactly what it sounds like. Around the world, there are hotels that house permanent guests in the form of animals. 

“What kind of animals?” You may ask. Whilst domesticated animals like cats and dogs dominate the animal kingdom in the hospitality industry, several hotels also billet more exotic creatures like peacocks and flamingoes.

These unique properties go the extra mile to ensure that human guests are accompanied by animal guests. If you’re a lover of animals, we highly recommend considering booking a stay at one of these animal-loving properties for your next trip.

Of course, Paris is on the list. And, of course, the animal in residence for the Paris property is a French feline named Socrate. Although Socrate is genetically a Burmese cat, his elegance and sophistication are those archetypal of a Parisian. The predecessor was the current resident’s father, Fa-raon. The seven-month-old kitten has purred his way into everyone’s hearts, and has been described as “very happy, a good listener, and curious about the world around him, if not a little shy.”
