Review: Hyatt Centric,
Victoria Harbour Hong Kong – A Haven of Peace & Luxury in the centre of Hong Kong

Your Home Away From Home

When I go on holiday or vacation, I seek an experience that is distinct from my everyday life. I don’t want a hotel that simply feels like home—if that were the case, I wouldn’t spend my hard-earned money traveling to new destinations. What I desire is a place that offers the comforts of home while providing the excitement and luxury of a getaway. The Hyatt Centric Victoria Harbour Hong Kong Hotel delivers exactly that.

The choice of accommodation we choose while on vacation or a business trip has a huge impact on our general frame of mind. The hospitality industry is hugely competitive so it’s vital for success for each establishment to stand out from the crowd.

The hospitality industry is unique because while there may be a certain amount of revenue to be made from the sale of tangible items, the primary USP of a hotel is the endearing memories that each guest has during and after their stay – The “User Experience”, “Customer Journey” or “Touch Points” as they are often referred to.

So, whether you are a fleeting visitor on a business trip, vacation, getting married or looking for a longer-term stay, you are sure to create lasting memories while staying at The Hyatt Centric, Victoria Harbour Hotel in Hong Kong.

Situated in a prime, waterfront location by the harbour just 3 minutes from North Point Ferry Pier, it’s perfectly positioned for those seeking cultural enrichment or wishing to take advantage of retail therapy. Whatever you decide, relaxation comes as standard. There are amenities in and around the hotel complex that cater to every kind of Hong Kong visitor.

If like me, you’re a believer in the power and influence of vibrations, you will appreciate that everyone and everything around us emits positive or negative vibrations. I believe that these vibes subtly impact our mental well-being.

Melding the impeccable skills of renowned design studios such as André Fu and Hirsch Bedner Associates, the ambience of the hotel fills the individual with a sense of positivity and calmness. The hotel features an all-day dining concept (more about that later), a speciality restaurant & bar, a bakery, a gym, and an outdoor swimming pool on the top floor. For nature lovers, the magnificent waterfront garden promenade offers a haven of tranquillity should you need a break from the hubbub of the retail complex of Harbour North.

Whether you’re booked into one of the hotel’s 665 rooms or suites, you will benefit from beautiful and sumptuously decorated, interior-designed spaces some of which maximise the undisturbed, panoramic views of the harbour. If you fancied it, you could spend the whole day watching life go by on the water and see the spectacular city burst into life after dark as the reflection of the city lights twinkle and dance on the waterfront.

For business travellers or social network addicts who still feel the need to be connected to their digital lives, the hotel offers complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi.

Other features extended to hotel guests include some of the following:

  • 49” LED TV with IPTV service
  • 65” LED TV with IPTV service (Victoria Harbour Suite)

All of this relaxing can induce quite an appetite! Do not fear though. The hotel is home to several dining venues that will tickle and tantalise the taste buds. Brunchers, Casual diners, Fine diners and Grab & Snackers. All are catered for at the Hyatt Centric Victoria Harbour.

The Farmhouse is an interactive buffet restaurant where the food is prepared by talented chefs live from multiple stations around a barn-themed environment. Being dog-friendly, there is an outdoor patio with seating to allow patrons to admire the gardens and stunning harbour views while enjoying their meal.

Cruise Restaurant & Bar is a rooftop restaurant & bar with an outdoor oasis and a terrace overlooking Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour. Serving modern Asian food in a fun and chic atmosphere.

Cruise Terrace is an outdoor bar that also serves food. Popular among locals and visitors for the unique views of Victoria Harbour and casual vibes. It’s the ideal place to meet with friends or business associates over one (or more) of their signature Asian-inspired cocktails.

 

The Farmhouse Deli is the place for a “grab-and-go” meal or a deliciously decadent anytime meal. Open from 8am to 8pm, patrons can choose from a variety of hot and cold offerings.

Hyatt Centric Catering Box is the perfect solution for meeting with friends, family and colleagues. If you’re spending the day exploring the city and want to guarantee a good choice of food, why not take one with you and dive into it as and when your cravings dictate?

Above all else – the rooms, the views, the facilities, the dining options etc… One vital component that makes a hotel stay memorable is the convivial staff and the quality of service they provide.

An army of staff works tirelessly to make every stay at Hyatt Centric Victoria Harbour worthy of its five-star status. Our interaction with affable people makes memories truly worth treasuring. The staff at the hotel have received such high praise from guests since the hotel opened just a few short years ago. The combined effort of each and every individual is what makes a successful brand in any sector whether it’s a commercial enterprise or not. The Hyatt Centric Victoria Harbour Hong Kong has set the bar very high for its competitors and I’m sure it will continue to attract a global clientele for many years to come.
