If dogs are indeed a man's best friend, then vacationing with your furry mate is a right we need to have. What brings more joyful delirion than having a loyal companion follow you all around the world, enjoying the same spoils that you do?

Here to definitively change the way we travel is Alila Anji's latest venture, which allows guests to book a stay with their pets at the resort's spacious Lake View or Hill View villas — at no additional charge. The luxury resort in China's northwestern Zhejiang province has teamed up with Zee.Dog, a global lifestyle brand, to furnish each villa with amenities for your animal such as pet food, water bowls, and wet pads. Ordering room service for yourself? On Alila Anji's in-villa pet snacks menu is a variety of dog chew bones that you can add on to your order. We guarantee you won't be able to say no to those puppy dog eyes.

When you're ready to leave the villa, Alila Anji is an idyllic tranquil escape surrounded by fresh air, mountains, dense bamboo forest, and beautiful tea plantations. Your pet friend will love soaking in the lush landscape, and the resort has also thoughtfully placed pet litter stations in discreet spots around the sprawing grounds.

Alila Anji is only an hour's drive from Anji Grand National Bamboo Forest, renowned for being the backdrop for the martial arts battles in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. With easy access from major cities Shanghai, Hangzhou, and Suzhou, you're ensured a seamless holiday with ample bonding time with your four-legged pal.
