Lifestyle | Azalea Baguio Part2: Home Up in the Mountain Province

Azalea Baguio Hotel Travel Philippines Duane Bacon Blogger

In a Yuppie’s perspective, a perfect get away is and will always be a part of our long weekend plans. At first, Baguio was way out of my list, then after the Azalea Baguio experience, I’m looking at Baguio in a different perspective right now. I’ve spent most of my Christmas and summer weekends in Baguio and I’ve been to all it’s famous spots but it’s still something Im not attached to.

This is the first time I appreciated a Hotel Tour and I didn’t expect they’ll take us to intimate places, so personal, curated enough that sure makes all costumer impressed, so let’s start talking about the #AzaleaGroupGetAway adventure 😀

Check: Part 1 of this Azalea Baguio Getaway

Your Home Away From Home

No matter how you set your Itinerary, bottom line, it’s still your Room Accommodation that really sets the whole mood of the trip. I was restless on the first day and just pushing my self just to fulfill this commitment, hence it was actually the best state that I should be, in this condition, the Azalea Baguio was put to test.

Azalea Baguio is the only 5 Star Apartment Hotel in Baguio City, no wonder the scenery takes you on a complete new environment away from the bustling city life. Making this place  a choice for a perfect get away,

Own Your Time! at TRADISYON

Tradisyon is the official food caterer for Azalea Baguio, they serve various choices of meals all through out the week, what I like about them is that they serve all round of dishes from Sea Food to Foreign Delicacies. I love all their Pizza & Pasta, sorry but I chose to be a regular costumer when Im inside Tradisyon and just enjoy the good food, less photos, excuse me for this.

I love how the interiors were set and eating at Tradisyon makes me feel like “Go Duane! you can eat all you want! Take your time!” Im glad Tradisyon always serves really good food that fuels my energy for all through out the day.

The first night was a really good night sleep! my body clock was really set waking up by 5am, but I woke up by 4am and feeling excited, and I step out and tour my self around the grounds and boom! every corner is Instagram Worthy! hahah Get you OOTDs on ready when you visit Azalea Baguio!

Trusty Staff

I also made my own interviews, I kept on asking most of the staff about small matters and I really admire how good they response, very polite and you’ll feel in the tone of their voices that they are able to answer your inquiries.

One more thing is that, you can trust them for a really good instagram worthy no blur, good framing shot hahaha, the photo below was actually taken by Kuya Joy, the Security Guard I bumped into just right around 5am sun rise. It was a really good sleep, I didnt mind walking around on a breezy Baguio morning.

Hotel Amenities

Speaking of Good Sleep, it was really funny that since Im the youngest among my roomates, I took the “Sofa Bed” hahahha I just cant stop laughing at them including to my self, at first I was like “Errr not here” it’s not my kind of bed since Im 5.9″ and Im sure I wont fit in, yet I didnt know about it’s hidden wonders until it was converted into it’s glamorous “SOFA BED MODE” hahaha!

The sofa bed experience was the best! I also asked other bloggers who slept at the Sofa Bed(including other bloggers before our batch) and we all share the same good well rested deep sleep, Mr.Sandman didnt have any difficulties in sending us to sleep since the temperature is so easily managed in this spot. In my head it makes the best spot if you come here in big groups, just open the windows and viola! instant freezer coming up!

In my mind I would love to invite other bloggers to bunking in beside me, on my bed, the sofa bed experience makes it the best place to sleep in groups while we enjoy the cozy climate. But that didnt happen since everybody was so excited to work on their photos hahaha, we are all caught red handed.

Here Papi Myke, the father image(?) in our team lol, occupying the Masters Bedroom.

In every hotel, I really prefer having my own iron for some reasons hahaha, in ours we got 2 Flat Irons. Also, every room has their own bath robe and Slippers so you dont need to worry about it, just feel at home once you step in.

Papa John, wants to be lonesome in his guest room, okay great but still, the Sofa Bed remains the best spot.

Going to the dining hall, I love our ceramic table since it’s easy to clean and both Papi and Papa works here while waiting for our call time. While lucky me, I decided to leave my laptop and enjoyed the experience of a perfect get away.

Every rooms were fully loaded with kitchen necessities, so sad cooking is not our forte so we rely on Tradisyon’s good food.

Sneak Peek! Aside from the 2 Bed Rooms that we occupied, Azalea Baguio let us check on the other rooms.

3 Bed Rooms

I dont recommend this room to whom family members loves to stay in chat all night hahaha, I can imagine this room with my cousins and our undying ghost stories and hair raising experiences. wooohhh!!! I know Pinoys love to gather and share stories like my family does. hahaha. here’s the guest room with 2 beds.

Good Food keeps our bonds firmer, a 5 star apartment hotel cant leave you relying on to fast food deliveries, Azalea Baguio offers every room an induction cooker that enables you to cook fast and also child friendly.

If you prefer to be in a small group or in an intimate space, try Solo 😀

Solo Delux

For those who want to keep things solemn, take this solo room, especially the one that has balcony, sighh~~~ the view up from here is priceless, when I got in here, in my mind I would love to start my day staring blankly at the morning sky, with my Yagam Hand Picked Coffee resting in my palms and a good Young Adult book, John Gree, David Levithan, Lang Leav or Paulo Coelho on the other hand huhuhuh, what more if it’s a couple thing~~ perfect get away. tsk3.
