Ask anyone where the best place to stay in Baguio is—you'll likely be pointed in the direction of this longtime favorite for many guests. Exterior-wise, The Manor looks like it's been taken from the pages of a Swiss country club tale—a perfect compliment to Baguio's own surroundings. Think: well-manicured gardens and lush pine trees that envelop the exclusive 4-storey structure. Oh, and don't forget the Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course!

And that's only the beginning.

The splendor of The Manor awaits from the moment you step out of your vehicle. The sweeping panoramic views, the earthy scent of fresh pine trees, and the cool mountain air will instantly greet you. This is the place you've been looking for to escape the metro's hot, polluted mess.

The walls of The Manor have been a longstanding keeper of fond memories. Childhood summers and Christmas holidays. Romantic gestures expressed by young lovers and retiring partners alike. Loud conversations of family reunions catching up over hot chocolate and warm treats.

The entrance of The Manor is an invitation to the spacious lobby area of local woodwork art pieces, wood clad walls, stone accents, soft lighting, and a gorgeous glass fireplace. Its wooden shuttered doors open to the sprawling outdoor patios with towering pine trees that surround the whole vicinity as its backdrop.

The Manor's 4-storey structure houses 177 rooms with log cabin-inspired interiors of spacious carpeted rooms and ultra-cozy beds. It's rare to enjoy weather like Baguio in a tropical country like the Philippines. That's why the Manor's rooms are designed to allow fresh mountain air fill the room. Let's give the air conditioning a rest, shall we?

During the day, The Manor's grounds are bathed in sunlight and the view is absolutely breathtaking. And when the sun sets in, the hotel is beautifully lit up and the gardens are illuminated that adds to its enchanted feel at night.

The famous Le Chef restaurant is certainly an attraction on its own. Overlooking the garden, this restaurant is home to haute cuisine by the award-winning chef patron Billy King, where the highlight is the freshness of Baguio's produce and succulent dishes. If you're willing, choose a spot at the outdoor dining area for a gorgeous view of the inner courtyard garden.

Le Chef Delicatessen also serves freshly-baked bread, cakes, pastries, homemade sauces, and seasonal specialties. It's a well-known tradition to bring home as a gift for friends and family.

Overlooking the garden, the Piano Bar & Lounge specializes in international cuisine. Tall pine trees, crisp sweater weather, and wooden interiors complete with a fireplace in the lobby that's best used to while away chilly nights with a cup of hot tea or cocoa in hand.

Whether indoors or outdoors, there is never a dull moment at The Manor. Whether it's exercising at the gym or getting a hot stone massage at the in-house spa, it has everything you need to suit your 5-star vacation standards.

If you're up for it, go out and explore the rest of the Camp John Hay Complex. A former US military base for rest and recreation facility, this 246-hectare offers plenty of things to do for the modern traveler. Go on a Tree Top Adventure, explore an eco-trail, visit the Butterfly Sanctuary—there's just so much to do!

The Manor is more than just an escape from the daily grind and tropical heat. It's able to capture the nostalgic charm of yesteryear and embrace the present seamlessly. This longtime favorite continues to impress guests with its own sense of alpine luxury And that's certainly why they keep coming back to relive everything again and again.
