The narrow street leading to Azalea Residences Baguio is very unassuming of what lies ahead. We were in awe when at the end of the street we were greeted by this...
A magnificently massive deluxe serviced apartment, Azalea Residences is composed of 46 De Luxe rooms; 17 One bedroom suites; 33 Two bedroom suites; 3 Three bedroom suites; 1 Coffee Shop; 1 Bar Lounge; 1 Playground, 1 Business Center, and a partridge in a pear tree.
One of the many reasons why we decided to book a two bedroom suite at Azalea Residences is because of the lodge styled exterior which would make us further embrace the tranquility of mountain lifestyle. The consensus originally was The Manor but when we found out about this, we immediately decided to give it a go and we are grateful that we did!
The focal point of the exterior is this bronze water ball fountain with azalea flowers
The pictures simply can not do this beautiful place any justice especially at night!
The garden surrounding the playground is well manicured and lit. My boys loved playing there. There wasn't enough sand on the playground to cover the exposed crisscrossed pipes though. My son tripped over one.
A multipurpose tent is erected on the left side facing the playground. I forgot to ask the actual maximum capacity of the place but my rough estimate would be around 150 pax. Great for parties and weddings.
The interiors of the hotel is designed differently. Modern contemporary with clean lines and sleek design dominates the interiors. The lobby exudes Leonardo da Vinci's famous quote, "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication". It would be great if they'd put a huge table in the middle of the lobby with a gigantic fresh azalea flower arrangement. Just a suggestion. ☺
The huge accent wall - from the ground floor up to the top floor - is adorned by large wood carved azalea flowers. I like the way this one is done. Beautiful!
We were actually clueless as to what a real azalea flower looks like so we asked the front office agent to show us a sample of the flower. Upon some research, I found out that the flower symbolizes temperance, passion, and womanhood. Womanhood? Fate! Perfect for our post (just a day after) Mom's Day vacation!

While I was busy checking in, my boys were enjoying their welcome drinks (strawberry juice of course). I didn't get to taste mine because my youngest drank it all up and kept asking me for more! He said that they were "very yummy"!
Hallway leading to the two elevators
The hallways on the floors are cool even without a/c because of the continuous flow of air due to cross- ventilation.
