It’s been a good while since my family and I last visited the beautiful city of Baguio. If memory serves me right, it was roughly a little more than a year since. So, it was a very welcome opportunity when my wife and I got the invitation to stay at one of the more recognizable and family-friendly hotels in this place — Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio.
Apart from the stay itself, I was looking forward to experiencing Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio’s Family Fun Package which aims to give families checking in at Azalea a memorable stay which is truly one of a kind.
Together with a few other blogger friends and their respective families, we headed off to Baguio City. I, personally, was excited to escape the hot and humid Manila weather even for just a couple of days.
Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio – A great accommodation for families
Right from the moment we stepped out of the van, it immediately felt like home. The warm welcome by our wonderful hosts was just what we needed after the long drive up.
Soon after a quick chit-chat with some of the amazing people of Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio, we were led to our respective rooms to relax, freshen up and prepare for a good number of activities lined up for us which are included in their Family Fun Package.
A wonderful 2-bedroom apartment suite
We were given a beautiful 2-bedroom apartment suite which was perfect for my family.
The suite boasted of a kitchen and dining area which had a breakfast nook where folks could bond over delicious food and snacks.
The place also had a very cozy living room area where a sofa bed awaits. Our little girl wasted no time claiming this area all to herself… Hahaha!
Our son happily commandeered the bedroom right next to the balcony which was actually perfect for him since it easily provided the kind of privacy a boy his age normally wants.
My wife and I naturally took the master bedroom which offered a little more space and its own toilet and bath.
Here are a few details of our room to satisfy your curiosity.
- Masters Bedroom: 1 queen sized bed
- Guest Room: 1 double sized bed
- A living room with a cozy sofa that can be converted into a sofa bed
- 60 sqm – 4 adults, 2 kids / 6 adults
- 2 bathrooms stocked with essentials
- 3 TV sets
- Fully-equipped modern kitchen
Note that all rooms at Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio, as with most other hotels in the area, do not have air-conditioning.
All the air-conditioning you would need comes from the cool, fresh Baguio air that freely flows all around the entire property.
Before heading out to enjoy the itinerary of our Family Fun Package, I had enough time to go around the hotel and check out some of Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio’s facilities and amenities.
A quick tour around Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio
Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio doesn’t feel anything like a traditional hotel.
Well, sure… they may have the front desk and receiving area, but apart from that, it offers a more homey ambiance filled with wooden accents. It is probably this hotel’s character that easily endeared the place to me.
Even before you set out to enjoy what Baguio City has to offer, kids will already be raring to use up their pent up energy at the playground located just outside of Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio’s main structure.
The playground has pretty much all the fun attractions that children would want to keep them happily busy and active.
Martinez Hall 2
Of course, every good hotel should not be without a function hall where guests could hold events, meetings and celebrations. During our stay, Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio prepared a small arts and crafts activity for our kids, together with a delightful buffet, which was held at the hotel’s Martinez Hall 2.
There’s nothing like a good round of arts and crafts to get the kids’ creative juices flowing, matched with delicious treats to keep them energized. It goes without saying that the children had a blast.
Tradisyon – Pinoy Comfort Food
Tradisyon is the name of the restaurant where Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio serves up their amazing dishes to the delight of guests, whether local or foreign.
And since food is almost always at the center of any fun celebration or gathering, Tradisyon makes it a point to provide specialties that make your dining experience unforgettable.
I think I may have gained a couple more pounds because of it. Hahaha!
Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio is a great choice for any family
Apart from Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio being strategically located right along Leonard Wood which happens to be a main thoroughfare and filled with cool establishments to check out, the property itself and the amazing people that run it are what makes this place a real delight to stay at.
The convenience and comfort guests can expect at Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio is something worth looking forward to again and again.
Baguio has always been close to my heart ever since I was a kid. But, Azalea Hotels and Residences Baguio adds more reason to why the “Summer Capital of the Philippines” is all the more a destination of choice by #TheDreys — summertime or not.
Check back soon to know all about our Azalea Family Fun Package experience which I will be posting here on my blog in just a couple of days. Cheers!
