The World’s Biggest Pet Hotel Opened in Cape Town- Take a Look Insid

The newly opened hotel for cats and dogs is not only the largest in South Africa, but its founders claim it’s the biggest pet hotel in the whole world.


If there’s anything close to a pet heaven on earth, it’s located in Cape Town, South Africa. Why? Because that’s where your kitty or pooch can enjoy all of the pawesome perks that the world’s largest pet hotel can offer. Hint: it’s a lot of perks.


AtFrits Pet Hotel and Daycare Centre flaunts 2,400 square meters of pet-centered extravaganza. Envisioned both as a daycare and a hote l, this impressive place can house 350 dogs and 30 cats on any given day. There, your four-legged companion would enjoy delicious meals, fancy rooms, mood lighting, swimming pools, and much, much more. You, on the other hand, would get the peace of mind with the hotel’s constant live stream and supervision.

The posh pets could be staying in one of the hotel’s 56 dog rooms or 32 rooms for felines. And AtFrits boasts some seriously creative and fancy rooms! For instance, dogs can get to live it up in one of the thematic chambers, such as HollyWoof or Jurassic Bark. Or, if you want your pooch to feel really posh, you’d book them the presidential suite- aptly named Dognald Trump.

But it’s not only dogs that get to enjoy being spoiled by the hotel staff and the luxurious surroundings. Kitties can also reminisce of their divine days in specially designed catios and cat rooms, such as the aquatic-themed Meowmaid or royal-worthy Cat Middleton. Depending on which room and accommodations you decide on, a day in the hotel can set you back anywhere from R285 (circa $20) to R1,500 (circa $100).

Yanic Klue, the founder and owner of AtFrits, tells the Business Insider that her goal was to create a place where everyone could leave their pet when they go to work, without having to worry about their precious fur baby being alone. When she started building her dream 8 years ago, she hadn’t envisioned it will grow to be the biggest pet hotel in the world- but I’ll bet you that pampered pets of South Africa are more than glad for it!
