To officially end summer, my husband and I decided on an impromptu last minute Baguio escape. I turned to the ever reliable Agoda.com for hotel promotions and found the perfect place for our rendezvous, the Le Monet Hotel.
The Le Monet Hotel is located in touristy Camp John Hay (CJH). It may be troublesome to stay here if you will be using public transport, but CJH remains to be the best place to be at, when in Baguio.
The surrounding pine trees and forest, cool climate and serene environment is what I have always loved about this city.
|From L-R; (a) Flat TV with very good movie and children channels; (b) Our veranda with forest view; (c) Mini bar (prices not as expensive as I first thought); (d) Two huge twin beds which can fit a family of 4 comfortably|
The hotel is spic and span and beautifully scented too. The carpet, linen and curtains looks newly washed.
We stayed in a deluxe twin with a forest view veranda (perfect for a cup of hot coffee or cocoa). I find the room quite small, but it has everything we needed for a comfortable stay.
|From L-R Bathroom is immaculately clean (a) Separate shower with good hot and cold water; (b) A plus TV inside the bathroom, which my kiddos grew very fond of; (c) Toiletries (not much to say)|
It is truly a beautiful hotel and we love that it has a heated pool (I don't know any other hotels in Baguio with a heated pool). Seems a bit zany, but my boys enjoyed swimming in Baguio.

Le Monet is indeed a perfect alternative to expensive Camp John Hay Manor.
