Everyone’s talking about summer vacation, hitting the beach, trying out extreme water sports, visiting an old town or some might be contented for a staycation. But most people still choose Baguio, a perfect venue to escape the summer heat.
Few hours travel and a few stop over we finally reached the summer capital of the Philippines. We stayed at Azalea Hotels and Residences, the first 4-star serviced apartment hotel located in a secluded hill (few minutes away from downtown Session Road) in Baguio City. We were greeted by warm welcome of their staff and a refreshing strawberry drink.
Hubby and I stayed in a one-bedroom apartment suite, it was spacious, extremely clean and so welcoming with a basket of fruits and fresh flowers. I immediately headed out to the balcony to take a peek of the view, I forgot that our room was just on the first floor haha.
I thought that this was our bed, upon checking the whole room I noticed that this is just a sofa that can be converted into a bed. This room can actually fits more people with its size of 45 sqm. there will be enough space for everyone.
Equipped with two LCD TV with DVD Player, a comfy sofa bed, dim lights plus the cold weather of Baguio, I bet you would’t want to leave this room.
My back easily get tired after a long walk or travel, the best way I tame it is to dump myself into a soft mattress with silky-smooth sheets and fluffy pillows. For me the bed is the most important element in my hotel room. I’m glad Azalea have it, plus the fact that their sheets don’t smell like strong detergents.
If you want a luxury of a hotel but with the atmosphere and comfort of home, you should definitely try them out. Aside from the fact that you have your own living room, you can also cook your own food as Electric cooktops, microwave oven, rice cooker, refrigerator, electric water kettle, dinnerware and silverware sets are provided. Unfortunately, I didn’t had the chance to show the wifey chef in me haha!
Did I told you that they have the nicest bathroom? From clean towels, bathrobe and cute toiletries. Almost all the things that you need for your vacation are readily available.
Azalea people can make your stay comfortable as the way you want it to be. They are very accommodating, we requested for a coffee (we can’t sleep without it!) in the middle of the night and it doesn’t took them so long to deliver it to us with a smile. They even leave you a box of treats as little surprise after your long day outside the hotel.
You never have to go far to search for good food, hmm let me rephrase it to delicious and quality food. Tradisyon (Pinoy Comfort Food) brings you well-loved and familiar local and international cuisine. Some of my personal favorites are Binagoongang Bagnet and Kare-Kare and you should never forget to try their hot chocolate! Trust me! More about them on my next blog! For the meantime, let me give you a peek to their coffee shop.
Azalea has an indoor 8 degrees Bar Lounge that can accommodate at least 20 persons. For a more intimate bonding session with your family or friends (group getaway) this is a chill out spot while sipping one of their best seller cocktails.
A Family holiday haven, I’m sure kids will love their outdoor play area while enjoying the cold breeze of Baguio.
Another memorable adventure for us while we were in Baguio.
By the way, if you don’t want to hassle yourself in touring around Baguio, Azalea can do tour arrangement for you! Watch out for my next blog post about our tour.
Now, you tell me why we left our heart at Azalea Baguio?!
