Calling all furry friends: Crystalbrook has partnered up with Mimi & Munch, The Daily Edited, DOGUE, Dogs @ Play and Doglato to launch the Plush Pup Package staycation, complete with a doggie butler, stylist and day spa experience.

SYDNEY, Sept. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Gone barking mad in lockdown? If working from home has taught us anything, it's that everything is better with a furry friend by your side. To say thanks for the endless video calls, constant walkies, cuddles and companionship, treat your best friend to the ultimate five-star Plush Pup Package staycation at Surry Hills' Little Albion, a Crystalbrook Collection Boutique Hotel.

From 1 September, guests and their four-legged luggage can book Sydney's most extravagant Plush Pup Package staycation with all the bells and whistles (and a few chew toys too). Housed within a former convent dating back to 1903, Little Albion's 35 unique rooms bring the very best of Surry Hills to life with eclectic design and bespoke hospitality while staying true to its heritage DNA.

The pooch pampering will begin on arrival with bakery treats from Mimi & Munch. Once your pup is adequately fuelled for a day of exploring, prepare to take on Sydney's trendiest suburb with a personalised collar and lead from The Daily Edited.

If inner-Sydney isn't home, the hotel's 'A pup's ultimate guide to Sydney' will ensure you hit all the best dog-friendly parks, cafes and bars on offer.

After you've sipped and snacked your way through Surry Hills' quirky coffee shops, treat your fur baby to a trip to DOGUE Bondi, where they will be indulged with a personal styling session to ensure they are always looking their best. Your pup will be fitted for the latest in dog accessories and apparel, taking home a DOGUE Design Collection cable knit jumper and a designer dog bed.

If you feel like exploring the city solo, or have a few human commitments to attend to, Dogs @ Play will take care of your pup, making sure they are just as spoiled as you. You can rest assured your pooch will have the time of their life during their afternoon day spa experience. The choices for treatments are endless – from a blueberry facial, sensitive skin PH neutral water spa and volcanic mud bath, to a salon-fresh vanilla, coconut or deodorising bubble bath.

Your pooch will be dropped back at the hotel safe and sound in the afternoon by their personal Doggie Butler, so you can both hit the town for dinner looking and feeling your best.

Finally, your four-legged friend will receive an evening turndown service complete with Doglato and doggie eye mask, the perfect way to wind down after a big day.  

Starting at $995, the Plush Pup Package staycation package includes:

  • One-night stay at Little Albion
  • Mimi & Munch doggie bakery treats and eats on arrival
  • The Daily Edited personalised collar and lead
  • Exclusive fitting with DOGUE doggie stylist
  • Personal doggie butler with Dogs @ Play
  • Little Albion's 'A pup's ultimate guide to Sydney'
  • Evening turndown service with Doglato

Alternatively, opt for a stay with all the love but without so many bells and whistles - pet-friendly rooms start at $270 per night with an additional $50 charge for your dog, which includes a dog bed, blanket and bowl (not for keeps) along with a Mimi & Munch biscuit and a lick pad with a jar of Mimi & Munch Bambi's peanut butter.
