Azalea Residences Baguio: Another Great Holiday Haven for Romantic Retreats, Family Getaways and Group Outings
It just really feels great to be in Baguio City during the coldest season of the year! Imagine 9 degrees at night??? When Frank and I heard about the extra cool weather in one of our most favorite cities, we just had to do another impromptu trip!
For this special stay, we opted to visit places which common tourists don’t really know of. Instead of the usual destinations and landmarks, we decided to try out new things and visit new places. And besides, travel is all about adventure and discovering new things right?
Baguio City is indeed blessed and abundant not only with natural resources but also great hotels! And for this weekend, we were fortunate enough to discover and experience one of Baguio City‘s relatively new yet very popular hotels… The Azalea Residences.
We arrived in Baguio around 10pm that night…. We were tired from the 8-hour bus ride (traffic) and the cold temperature that time (12 degrees) but thanks to their very accommodating staff, they immediately made us feel so at home and made sure we were all warm and comfortable. Seeing our lovely room for the weekend immediately helped us forget our stressful long trip.
We love everything about our room! All rooms at The Azalea Residences are fully furnished with your own kitchenette, microwave oven and dining area, making it possible for you and your loved ones to cook meals and dine inside your room. They can also provide you with cookwares, plates and silverware at no additional charge!
Since it was already late, we didn’t want the restaurant staff to work overtime just to wait for us finish our meal so we requested to have dinner in our room. Curious on what we had?? Here’s a closer look………….
The next morning, we woke up to a perfectly cool sunny day and we’re both excited for the day’s activities with fellow blogger friends!
But before everything else of course, we had to start our day with a power breakfast!
I promised myself not to indulge too much, but I just couldn’t resist!
After that filling power breakfast, we decided to tour around the hotel….. Let us give you a quick tour shall we?
Another great thing we love about The Azalea Residences is that their staff is so warm and accommodating…. always ready to attend to your needs! They even gave us a quick tour of their various rooms…..
Lunch time came so we both marched back to Tradisyon and savored the following…..
After lunch, we met up with fellow bloggers Sir Vincent Tabor and videographer Aldreen Dumasig of LakbayBaguio.com for the 1st time and offered to show us around places which tourists don’t usually go to.
For our first stop, we went up to Mt. Cabuyao, the 2nd highest peak near Baguio City to witness the 360 view of the whole city of pines. For this trip, we had to rent a taxi (350/hr) to take us there since trips via public transport were seldom. From the hotel, it took us only less than 30mins to reach Mt. Cabuyao…..
When we started walking towards the viewing deck, I noticed I was feeling dizzy due to the high altitude. Good thing my body was able to adjust after a few minutes! phew!
this is what we saw upon arriving at the deck…..
