When you think of Baguio, you think of pine trees and the cool weather. That’s exactly what you’ll get when you stay at the South Drive Baguio Manor but better!
Think of it as your home away from home – literally. You get this cozy and homey feel that you’ll never want to check out of the hotel.
Why Book South Drive Baguio Manor Hotel of ZEN Rooms
Why South Drive Baguio Manor?
Well, let me tell you why!
Home Away From Home
South Drive Baguio Manor is famous for its homey and cozy atmosphere. After all, it’s a big house renovated into a hotel.
Upon entering, the first thing you’ll notice is the big fireplace and yes, it’s fully functioning! You can ask the staff to light it up for you in the evenings.
It’s rare to find accommodations with a fireplace so Ryk and I were pretty much looking forward to the evening. And it didn’t disappoint.
Aside from the fireplace, there are several sungka boards perfect if you want to chill and play.
If you want to be away from the city noise and pollution, you’ll love South Drive Manor’s location. It’s not that far from the city’s business district but it’s surrounded by pine trees and in a quiet neighborhood.
It’s only a few minutes away from Teacher’s Camp, SM, Wright Park, the Mansion, and Camp John Hay. You can even walk from and to each of the places mentioned. In fact, the South Drive road is one of the best places to jog in Baguio.
South Drive Manor also has an in-house restaurant called the Chevon Pitstop. Their specialty is kambing. It’s highly recommended!
Their breakfast meals are also super yummy. I had tapa and it was delicious!
Foodie Tip! The well-known Secret Garden is just beside the hotel – one of my go-to restaurants for seafood pasta and pizza!

Booking tip! Some rooms have balconies and are on a first-come-first-served basis so I suggest booking early. You can try requesting a room with a balcony when booking (in case there’s an available room) and wake up to a view of pine trees! If you’re lucky, you’ll get a foggy cozy morning. 😉
