We are thankful to our partners at BCDA, JHMC, and IFC for being part of our journey in creating a world-class, sustainable hotel in Baguio City.

We look forward to welcoming you all to experience a hotel envisioned to be a place to escape, unwind, and let loose. It will be a living, breathing community where everyone belongs. Integrated spaces merge style with practicality, offering communal areas to eat, play, and work. Experiences are as exciting or as relaxed as each guest desires.”
