It's easy to surrender to the sweet pleasures that Baguio can offer—the fresh cold mountain air, the earthy smell of pine trees, and the peacefulness of nature's stillness, to name a few.

Luckily, Grand Sierra Pines is where you can bask in nature's surroundings as it cocoons you in a sweet haven of solace. Situated in a quiet area along Outlook Drive, this low-key boutique gem offers all the modern luxuries you need for a restful and laid-back vacation. The facilities are pristine and the staff is always there to extend warm hospitality. None of it, however, is too grandiose. Rather, it errs more on the cozy side that allows you to feel at home the moment you check in.
