We decided to go for a family trip (Me, Hubby & Baby Coffee) last week, in celebration of our Anniversary & Birthdays which happens to be only 1 day apart from each other, to Ruby’s Resort in Cherating! To be able to celebrate together, since it is one of the resorts that allows pets.
Since it was our first trip together with Coffee, I packed a the car full with Coffee’s stuff! No photo of that though.. forgot!
Lucky for me Coffee is such a dear in the car, she knew something exciting was up! But was calm the whole 4 hour drive to Cherating.
We did make a few extra pit stops for her to stretch her legs and run around, lucky it was a weekday so the rest stops did not have many people and Coffee was able to run around freely! WEEEeee
Finally reached, the place was HUGE! So much running space for Coffee & so many other cats and dogs! Coffee even started to bark.. Such bravery for such a tiny body. Though I didn’t like the fact she was learning to bark.
We booked the Bamboo room, one of the cheaper rooms in the whole resort. I was also warned beforehand not to expect much luxury so I was not surprised by the bareness of the room. At least the room has air conditioning & water heater, which was enough for me!
Cherating is a Malay town, so we settled for a Malay Seafood Restaurant but had to leave poor Coffee in the car, should have just ate at Ruby’s. MUCH NICER!!! (We did that on the 2nd day) Slightly pricey, but considering she has 39 cats & 17 dogs to feed, I felt good I was contributing to helping her.
Ruby found out my favourite dish was Nasi Minyak, and went out to get it for our breakfast! Usually she would serve sandwiches but she knew it was our anniversary. It pays to be friendly with the hostess. 🙂
Coffee enjoyed herself too! She is terrified of the water, but loved running around and barking at the chicken and ducks.
Look at Coffee’s Dinner!! Fish & Chips!
Just kidding, that is mine, Coffee had to settle for kibbles.
Coffee getting all wrapped up in case she gets too cold in the air-con room. We don’t usually turn on the aircon at home, so not sure how she will feel with the aircon on the whole night.
Happy Happy family photo. Love you babes, Happy Anniversary!
All in all, Ruby’s Resort is not perfect, but it was definitely a wonderful place for a simple fun holiday with your pet. I would definitely be making more trips there and hopefully train the fear of waves out of Coffee.
Look out for my upcoming post
