As bundles of instant self-care, furry companions are a reminder to every pet parent – slow down. Take a break and cuddle with the furbabies at Hilton Manila, the integrated resort’s proud pet-friendly hotel. From guest rooms to executive suites, pets are welcome to staycations with their humans without worrying about the details. Special treats and packages also await the good boys and girls. For the hyperactive little ones, the hotel’s Kabang Dog Park, dedicated to the four-legged hero, remains a sustainable animal paradise for both cats and dogs to roam and socialize to their hearts’ content. Self-care includes unwinding in the company of loved ones and nothing is quite like the contagious joy of a beloved pet.
