Last March 9 to 11, 2016, we attended an event at Baguio Convention Center for Janette Torals’ Digital Marketing Workshop under WOFEX University and stayed at Azalea Residences located at Leonard Wood Loop ( across Teachers’ Camp) and near Camp John Hay which is also the all-suite hotel in Baguio City.
Our company been to different hotels already in that area but what made us go back to Azalea Residences are the following;
1. Hospitality- The ready smile, professional services and very accommodating staffs is already a plus.
2. Breakfast Buffet – With different menu every day from Filipino to Mexican dishes, you will crave for more.
3. Room – The cleanliness and spacious rooms of Azalea Residences are worthy to mention. We love to share and stay in these kind of ambiance and facility.
4. Kitchen equipment – For family who likes to cook inside and to have a longer stay at Azalea, the room is equip with Kitchen and dining utensils.
5. For the busy women like us, we love to do work also anywhere and at Azalea Lobby, we stayed comfortably with that powerful WI-FI and fresh strawberry shake. We sent our proposals to clients during our stay there and because of the no interruption in WI-FI connection, everything went smoothly and at the same time very relaxing.

The only motorized zip lines in the Philippines is here in Baguio or Subic Branch. Tree Top Adventure offers extreme activities overlooking a nice scenery with a good weather of course, nothing to beat that. You might want to try their Tree Drop, in which you’ll be suspended 60 feet above the ground, mission impossible style and falling as fast as 2 to 3 seconds. This is Tree Top’s most extreme activity and only costs Php150. This is one way to really quench your thirst for an adrenaline rush.
You might also want to try their rides done in pairs: the Superman Ride and the Silver Surfer. As the name implies, you’ll be zip lining Superman Style for 200 meters long 150 feet above the ground, but instead of just doing it forwards, you will also zipline backwards.
The Silver Surfer, on the other hand, is a 60-degree diagonal motorised zipline, in which you’ll be standing on a specialized platform and gliding up and down for three cycles. Expect stops and swings with every cycle. For Php300 and Php200 respectively, you can experience what superheroes feel like as they fly and glide through the air.
For those who haven’t been to Baguio. Oh! Inviting you all. According to the dictionary, Baguio, officially the City of Baguio and often referred to as Baguio City, is a highly urbanized city in northern Luzon in the Philippines. It is geographically within Benguet, serving as the provincial capital from 1901 to 1916, but has since been administered independently from the province following its conversion into a chartered city.
The city has become the center of business, commerce, and education in northern Luzon, as well as the seat of government of the Cordillera Administrative Region. So join us in Baguio and stay at Azalea Residences, I am the living proof of their uber hospitality.
