Looking to get away for the weekend but can’t bear the thought of leaving your furry friend at home? Little Steps has pawed through dozens of options throughout the city and put together this list of the Top 10 Pet-Friendly Hotels in Hong Kong. From doggie amenities to pet sitters who will look after Fido while you’re at the spa, you and your four-legged companion will be in heaven with these special stays.
With its commanding position at the trendy Victoria Dockside, first on our list is the Rosewood Hong Kong which provides the ultimate in luxury for your four-legged friends. Canine companions will receive a comfortable bed, tasty welcome treats, food and water bowls as well as recommendations for nearby dog-friendly restaurants, bars and parks. Feline friends are given a litter box and fun toys to boot. Each room accommodates a maximum of two pets, and sorry to all the Saint Bernard’s out there, but cats and dogs must weigh less than 15kg (33lbs).
Enjoy a pet-friendly stay in the heart of Central’s Business District with The Murray's "Pawsome Staycation". Pets (under 15 kg) are welcome as you tuck into an al fresco breakfast and afternoon tea at the Cotton Tree Terrace during your stay (included in the package), as well as dinner in an outdoor setting at the Garden Lounge using a bonus HK$900 credit. Moreover, complimentary parking is also included, so there's no need to worry about annoying taxi drivers as you make your way to and from the hotel. We also recommend going for a walk through Central at dawn – your pet against the backdrop of a deserted cityscape makes for some pretty cool Instagram shots! Offer valid until September 30, 2021.
Enjoy the magnificent views from Hong Kong’s highest hotel with your furry friends. Accepting two pets per room, the hotel welcomes dogs and cats weighing 20kg (44lbs) or less. There is a HK$250 + 10% service charge applicable per pet, but we love that the Ritz also offers a pet-sitting service with a supplement. As a result, you have the freedom to enjoy the hotel’s facilities knowing your four-legged pal is safe and well looked after in your ultra-opulent room.
The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, International Commerce Centre, 1 Austin Road West, +852 2263 2263, www.ritzcarlton.com
Next on our list is Hyatt Centric, offering a fun “Centric Dogcation” package for guests looking to staycay with pets in tow. The package starts at HK$999 + 10% and includes one night in a spacious Harborview room with doggie amenities, including the hotel’s Upper Farm Playground. The North Point Promenade Dog Park is also just around the corner for those looking to explore the neighborhood. Furry guests will receive a comfy bed, welcome treats and all the materials needed to keep them clean. But apologies to all the cat lovers out there. This package is for dogs, provided they are under 30kg (66lbs).
For those looking for a staycation away from the city, Alva Hotel by Royal enjoys a picturesque riverside location in Shatin. Its "Pawsome Dogcation Package" includes special rates starting from HK$998 +10% per room per night for two adults and one dog under 10kg (22lbs). Most importantly, there are plenty of outdoor spots within the hotel, such as the PitStop and The Terrace outdoor garden, and energetic doggies can go for walks along the scenic Shing Mun River. Complimentary canine amenities are provided, as well as surprise cash vouchers to use during your stay.
Treat your furry friend to a staycation at the iconic Mandarin Oriental, whose pet program includes exclusive amenities, a doggie menu and even a walking service by its team of animal lovers. Unfortunately, larger pets won't get to feel the Mandarin love, as pets need to weigh in under 4.5kg (10lbs) - basically the size of your average Shih Tzu.
With your pet in tow, indulge in W Hong Kong’s "P.A.W. (Pets Are Welcome)" program. Check out their WoofBar for your animal companions with W-style Whiskers and Paws amenities and merchandise, whilst their human counterparts enjoy the W’s contemporary guest rooms with breath-taking views. Amenities include exclusive color pet tags (pet’s name to be engraved at WOOFBAR), a leather poop bag, a discount on pet’s mocktail, and more. One pet under 15kg (33lbs) is allowed, while suites can accommodate up to two pets. Each pet is charged a fee of HK$500 per night, and an additional cleaning fee of HK$1,000 is charged should your pet leave the room in a less than satisfactory condition.
Starting on January 1, 2020, when you book the "Staycation by MO" package at the Landmark Mandarin Oriental, your furry friend will be able to accompany you for free. One (small) dog weighing under 4.5kg (10lbs) can stay for up to three nights and enjoy pampering with doggie cakes and treats. But doggies, beware, a cleaning fee of HK$1,000 will be charged upon check out.
Are you looking to venture to one of Hong Kong's outlying islands for a staycation? The Concerto Inn is located on Hung Shing Yeh Beach and is the perfect spot to unwind and leave the stresses of the city behind. The hotel charges HK$200 per pet per night, and fortunately, there is no size or weight limit for those large doggies and fat cats out there. You can head out for a hike, bike ride, or swim, then retreat to your comfy room in the evening with a tired pet in tow!
Ovolo's "V.I. Pooch" program delivers a stress-free staycation with your pet in the up-and-coming Wong Chuk Hang area. The package offers a bed that your dog can snuggle up in, eating and drinking bowls so it can feast like a king, a treat bag filled with pet-friendly goodies, as well as a team of pet-loving staff to help you out whenever needed.
The Southside's brand new hotel, The Arca, is a pet-friendly hotel! With specially created dog-friendly amenities, their lush outdoor terrace and a complimentary High tea set for two, we can't think of another place to unwind. Additionally, the package also includes complimentary in-room breakfast, overnight parking for one vehicle, dog essentials ( under 25 Kg) and a 10% discount on food and beverages; it is indeed a super-friendly pawcation package.
