#UPNorth Series: 7 Things I Love About Azalea Residences – Baguio

Welcome to Azalea Residences Baguio.

Being in the metro for almost every day keeps one immune with all the noise, pollution, traffic, work related stress and personal inconveniences to name a few. That is why going out-of-town, having a weekend getaway or even on a short weekday trip becomes more prevalent nowadays. Everyone wants to escape the bustling sound of the city to a more chill and laidback countryside. That is why I am creating this blog post for you to consider a holiday haven for your next family fun or group getaway in a beautiful city up north, Baguio.

Here are the things I love about Azalea Residences – Baguio:

1. Prime Location and Great Accessibility

Impressive exteriors.

Azalea Residences Baguio (ARBa) is located along Leonard Wood Loop, a street infront of Teachers Camp. Because of the narrow uphill street, no one will assume of what lies ahead. At the end of the road is an astonishing deluxe serviced apartment with 99 modern luxury suites complete with kitchen, living and bedroom areas. This place is first in Baguio City, where one can enjoy their stay with these full services and amenities in an upscale serviced apartment.

2. Classy and Cozy Hotel Apartment Vibe

Our room falls under Deluxe with Back-view Balcony.

ARBa is not your ordinary hotel. You can choose from 5 room categories namely Deluxe with Front – view Balcony, Deluxe with Window only, Deluxe with Back-view Balcony, Deluxe Center Rooms and Deluxe Loft. Each room is equipped with LCD TV with DVD Player, Cable Channel, Convertible Sofa Bed and Analog Telephone.

All White. I love how clean their bathrooms are. Thumbs up!

3. Cook at Your Own Risk

This is my SPOT!

I love to cook! After seeing the complete Kitchen and Dining area, it made my eyes glistened. Each fully furnished rooms has electric cooktops with range hoods, microwave oven, rice cooker, refrigerator, electric water kettle, dinnerware set, silverware set, pots and pans. I was able to make a caramelized mango dressing for our Toss a Salad Challenge which I will share to you on the upcoming blog posts. 

Complete glass and silverwares. :)

This is perfect for budget conscious groups who love to squeeze in expenses by having meals home cooked.

4. Personalized Service


Each room has greetings on the bed or on the table which made me feel really welcomed. Every time we go back to our rooms after an activity, there’s a note and sort of a complimentary rewards for performing a well done job.

5. Kiddie Playground

Unleash the CHILD in you!

Not all hotels have this feature especially in Baguio. Since ARBa is a family friendly type of hotel, they mount a pocket play area where children can enjoy the fresh air of the mountains while having fun outside.

I will not let the opportunity pass. I will PLAY! :)
 I myself enjoyed this facility which brings back a lot of my childhood memories.

6. 8 Degrees Bar Lounge

Welcome drinks with blogger friend #DangMusings
This bar has been entitled 8 degrees because Baguio is always 8 degrees cooler than the lowlands. This bar can host up to 20 persons and one can enjoy appetizers, light snacks, coffee or even alcoholic beverage for a night cap. Lounge is open from 6 am to 10pm daily.


I like to spend my nights here. Wine? Sure!

7. Tradisyon Pinoy Comfort Food

Search for the best food in town is never been too far from the hotel. ARBa boasts its in-house restaurant which features different cuisine every day. Everything is fresh and natural here. 

I love the ambiance.

Tradisyon is open from 6am to 10 pm and can accommodate up to 70 persons. Here are my food shots during my stay:
