We went for a staycation with our medium large dog. The service was excellent, and the room was spacious and clean. Upon arrival we received some goodies for the dog which included poop bags, snacks and toys, and the hotel room also had all necessary dog amenities. We particularly appreciated the outdoor space at the reception level which allowed our dog go potty so conveniently. The food was only alright, but we didn’t mind at all. We all had a very good time, the dog included!

The hotel is newly opened with an excellent location just 5 mins walk from wong chuk hang mtr station. We came to celebrate the 14th birthday of my doggy, and we booked the Pawfectcation package, which includes afternoon tea, breakfast, dog amenities. We were quite impress by the art elements and design of the hotel which makes this place very hip, modern and artistic. All the staff in the hotel are super dog friendly and sincere. We were also greeted by the hotel GM Jiho Kim when we were having afternoon tea, he is helping out in reception and the restaurant, and keep checking on guest’s experience., we can see the management of this new hotel do value guest comments alot. The restaurant also offers a Pawlious Menu with many healthy food options for doggy, we ordered a doggy cheeseburger, and my dog like it so much. And we love the infinity pool on the rooftop overseeing the habour view of the south side, that was spectacular! Overall, we enjoyed our stay and we would definitely come back for other occasions!

My first stay with my friend in the Arca, the hotel interior and room environment are quite unique compared to the other boutique hotels, it gives you the feeling of human touch and tranquility. Plus, the sea view is stunning!

The Arca staff are really approachable and welcoming, they had a chit-chat casually with us proactively that makes us have a warm stay. We are really appreciated that the assistant front office manager recommended us lots of nice spots and restaurants nearby, and we also learned more about the story of the hotel from him too!

We will definitely visit there again, probably with my dog since it is a pet-friendly hotel. I hope to get a chance to try the snacks and beverages of their bar when it opens next time!

I treated myself to a night at the Arca after working OT on a Friday night. The room rate is slightly on the high side but since it is a new hotel a minute away from my office, I would like to see how it’s like. The room turned out to be bright, modern, chic and stylish. And it is spacious too. The beige colour theme is very soothing. The interior design managed to make me very happy and I didn’t want to leave the next day. The receptionists were also friendly and helpful. One item in the room (and in the restaurant on 3/F) really impressed me. It is the coffee mug engraved with the wording of “Arca Wong Chuk Hang”. I just fell in love with it and kept thinking about it a long time after I left. Given a chance, I would love to be here again for a lovely ME time, sipping hot tea in that lovely mug.

This hotel is very new, clean and quiet. I've booked a seaview room which the seaview is fantastic. Swimming pool is very good. As hotel arranged each room can use for 1 hour per day, it wouldn't be very crowded and we enjoyed it very much. We did have a pleasant stay at The Arca!

Absolutely beautiful hotel. We were in Level 26 and the view of Aberdeen and jumbo is fabulous.

The room is airy, bright and spacious. The bathroom has shower only but very spacious with good amenities provided.

Hotel is very modern, lovely artwork. Check in very efficient and staff is very friendly. The outdoor area is very artistic and pet friendly. If you sit outside for breakfast, you may be able to spot a kite on the tree.

The pool is beautiful, we were very lucky to have the pool all by ourselves. The lifeguards there is very professional and nice. I really feel I am on holiday.

The hotel does provide free wifi and local map.

The hotel location is very convenient. 5 mins from Wong Cheuk Hang Mtr. The breakfast is buffet breakfast. It's ok but nothing to wow about.

There is plenty to do from hiking to Brick Hill, running along the Heung Yip Path, to strolling along Aberdeen Promenade.

Pls make sure you go and take a sampan ride along the typhoon shelter(Doris Chu - 92531836) and called the boat noodle man and tried the boat noodle ( 來叔 91402628).

The only thing that the hotel needs to improve on is to check how to reduce humidity in the room. As our T shirt or swimming suit even left overnight for more than 8 hours is still wet.

Love this place and would come back again. Currently it is value for money.

We are a family of five (2 adults and 3 kids age 8,5 and 1). We stayed in the family suite with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. The whole experience from check in to check out was flawless. The concierge, front desk, restaurant, housekeeping to the pool attendants were were exemplary. Our room was spotless and the layout was ideal as it gave us enough separation but also open enough to feel spacious. The view was incredible and we loved the automated blinds/curtains. The wnsuite bath is huge, although the floors are deathly slippery when wet, but the massive shower room is big enough to have 2 adults amid 2 children showering at the same time. Water pressure also good and loved the option of rain shower and shower head.

The breakfast buffet is also decent value especially if you have children. All Kids under 12 eat for free for every paying adult which was great for us as we have 3! Room service was also speedy and menu option had a kids section which was an unexpected treat.

The pool and gym were also great. Water in the pool on the cooler side as it’s not heated so in the fall/winter months prob not ideal for children but on a hot day it’s fine. Gym was fab - has everything you need and then some and not busy.

Without a doubt, we will choose to stay at the arca again on our next visit! Keep up the great work guys!!

My first staycation with my dog and it was to celebrate my anniversary with my partner as well. The Arca has a simplistic design yet gives a very soothing and relaxed vibe. They give pets amenities and is truly pet friendly as I know a lot of seemingly pet friendly hotels actually set a weight / size limit for dogs, but the Arca has no such limit!! As a big dog owner this is seriously heart warming to not being discriminated. The staffs here are also super friendly to pets, the community manager Candy TAM was very welcoming and caring, she made effort to cater our special needs with meals arrangement. Overall, the stay was very much pleasant and would definitely recommend it to big dogs owner!! Will definitely come back again!

We got a package including a welcoming red wine, afternoon tea and breakfast, the overall experience is comfortable. Even though the sea-view room looks nice, but we think the colour is relatively plain, so we chose the city deluxe as the colour matching, style as well as the decor are on point and insta worthy.

When we get to the hotel, the front desk was kinda busy as there is only one counter operating. The staff, Candy is really helpful and friendly, understand that the check-in process may be interfered by some other calls, she immediately offers us a late check out at 1. As the check in time is at 3, we left our stuff in the room after check in and immediately get down to the restaurant, it's time for the afternoon tea, once again, Candy shows her warm welcome and direct us to the cafe and check if the food quality up to standard.

The restaurant itself is comfortable as they offer both outdoor and indoor areas and the food is fine, nothing too impressive. For the breakfast, it is beyond expectation as they have quite a lot of choices as in such a small hotel.

The overall experience is really comfortable and highly appreciate what Candy has done to make us feel welcomed. Hope to revisit again someday.

Hi Nateboy, thanks for dropping us a review. Glad to hear that Candy was on hand to look after your needs during your recent getaway with us. On your next visit, do try out our Sea view room, as the sunset over the habour, while having a cocktail in your hand is something to adore. See you again soon! Cheers. Jiho

It was a great remote getaway. The hotel is located away from the city but yet easily access via mtr or bus. Jan whose checked me in was very nice and patient to answer all my inquiries about the pool and breakfast.

I stayed in the sea side room and because I checked in very late at night, the view during the day time really shocked me when I wake up.

Side note, happy to see the hotel providing alcohol wipes during this COVID times and glad to see the hotel bathroom shower amenities are refill bottles!
