If you’re travelling to Tagaytay in the Philippines, there’s no need to leave your dog behind; the area has many pet-friendly accommodation options. Book a room at a hillside retreat where you can run through the grounds together or take them along to an eco-hotel in the city. Here’s our pick of the best pet-friendly hotels in Tagaytay for you and your animal companions – bookable with Culture Trip.

1. Containers by Eco Hotel Tagaytay

For a unique and pet-friendly stay, consider Containers by Eco Hotel Tagaytay. There’s a pet playground on the roof deck, and the hotel has private grounds where you can take your dog for a walk. Although the rooms, made from old shipping containers, can’t be described as spacious, they have everything you need, including queen-size beds or bunk beds if you’re travelling with a family or large group.

2. The Carmelence View

The Carmelence View is another great pet-friendly option, and it’s just a short taxi ride from town. The seven pet-friendly rooms, suites and cabanas lie within a charming villa perched on a hillside. Each one boasts lots of space and natural light, contemporary furniture and stunning views over Taal Lake. The staff treat pets as part of the family, although you’ll have to pay 1,000 Philippine pesos (£15) per pet per night (this does not apply to guide or assistance dogs). The grounds are also perfect for active pursuits with your pet.

3. Nurture Wellness Village

Deep in the coffee orchards outside central Tagaytay is Nurture Wellness Village. As the name indicates, there’s an emphasis on wellness here, specifically a distinctive brand of “ecotherapy” or healing by and through nature. It includes spa treatments and a variety of activities. If you’re travelling with pets, book one of the five glamping tents – available for single families, groups of up to eight or, if you’ve got a big gathering, up to 20 adults and eight children. You’ll have to bring crates for your pets, though, as they’re not allowed inside the tents. They also can’t be in the dining, drinking and pool areas.

4. The Carmelence Lodge

The Carmelence Lodge has rooms in two charming, pastel-hued, pet-friendly villas, and each accommodation has simple furniture, lots of natural light, a spacious bathroom and a balcony or small patio. Some rooms have kitchenettes. The expansive grounds were made for a long lazy walk with your dog. As with the Carmelence View, there’s a 1,000-peso (£15) deep-cleaning fee per night for each pet, not including guide or assistance dogs.

5. Cabins by Eco Hotel Tagaytay

Canines (and their humans) checking into one of these nautical-inspired cabins will be greeted by the hotel’s resident pet, Blue. Larger groups should consider the family rooms, which can accommodate up to four guests. A restaurant and rooftop deck provide a bit of extra space, and the grounds are perfect for exercising your pet. If you need a little energy for the first dog walk of the day, the hotel serves the punchy local coffee, kapeng barako.

6. Asian Village Tagaytay

A short taxi ride from town, Asian Village Tagaytay brings together 10 rooms elevated on stilts and one larger house for big groups or families. Pets are welcome here, including in its camping grounds and outdoor garden; humans can enjoy the jacuzzi, swimming pool, in-room body massages and various food and drink options. You can bring one trained pet along with you, but they must be kept on a lead.

7. Casa de Miguelitos Resort

Just west of central Tagaytay, this resort is a short taxi ride or a fairly long walk into town – ideal for stretching your dog’s legs.
