The city's sparkling waterfront is a spectacle indeed, come day or night. To nab a spot on this prime position means you can forever marvel at the stunning harbour views. Although the skyline typically conjures up images of Tsim Sha Tsui and Central vantage points, we're venturing to the humble North Point where hotels like previously reviewed EAST Hong Kong and Hyatt Centric Victoria Harbour Hong Kong reside. We checked into the hotel for two nights – one to experience its dog-friendly facilities and one for the regular staycation.
Hyatt Centric Victoria Harbour Hong Kong is nestled in North Point, only moments away by MTR or quickly accessible via taxi. Checking in with two pups was a bit hectic, but thankfully there's a dedicated dog lift and check-in area for a relaxed welcome. If you're arriving by public transport (for non-dog staycations), note that it can be confusing once you arrive in the building, which is linked to a shopping mall so just follow the signposts.
There's a dedicated floor for pet staycations and we checked into our cosy Harbour View Deluxe Room, equipped with dog amenities including a bed each, water and food bowls and snacks.
The bathroom was the room highlight, a head-to-toe marble affair with a sleek bath overlooking the skyscrapers beyond.
There's also a generous pet garden for your pooches to exercise and meet fellow staycationers. During our experience, we dined at The Farmhouse, which comes with an outdoor dog-friendly sitting area, where we tried the delightful – and enormous – buffet for dinner and breakfast. Whatever you're feeling, the buffet pretty much caters to every cuisine.
We came back for another night without the added furry companions to experience the hotel in all its glory. Checking into our Harbour View Deluxe Room was a similar procedure with the room offering the same highlights.
We added in a treatment during our stay which takes place on a separate floor-turned-spa. I opted for a soothing massage to target my sore muscles and my therapist was helpful and guiding on the overall much-needed rejuvenation.

Undoubtedly our favourite part of both staycations was our experience at Cruise, an underrated, sky-high elegant eatery for champagne toasting and scrumptious Southeast Asian cuisine. We absolutely loved everything on the menu but hats off go to the wagyu beef cheek rendang which we will be returning back for time and time again.
