Partying on the beach is always a great summer idea, but when fourlegged friends can join in, it’s double the fun.

As part of its fifth year anniversary celebrations, Acuaverde Beach Resort and Hotel in Laiya, Batangas threw their first ever beach pet party, Paws @ the Beach – A Summer Getaway.

Organized by Paws & Tails Event Concepts and Management, there were games, a pet training talk, a beach swim fest, and a luau fashion show during the event, in addition to loot bags filled with party gifts for pets and pet parents alike.

Since the resort opened, pet owners were delighted to find that it was a pet haven; furry kids could freely roam the grounds while enjoying its amenities like everyone else. The resort proudly opens its doors to pets, giving them VIPet treatment during every visit with a welcome gift bag, containing beach essentials such as a beach towel, a chew toy, a spare leash, plus a bonus pack of treats.
