Grand Sierra Pines Baguio: Re-imagine the City of Pines
If you’ve ever wanted to reimagine your Baguio experience, then Grand Sierra Pines Baguio is the place for you. Located towards the northern part of Gibraltar, Grand Sierra Pines is a modern hotel that gives you everything you love about Baguio (cool mountain breeze, great scenery, wonderful people) with a twist.
GRAND SIERRA PINES. You will remember this driveway for a long time.
Grand Sierra Pines takes the best of Cordilleran culture and takes it into the 21st century. The hotel is considered a green building with its open-air set-up and several features that are both aesthetically pleasing and energy-saving. The rooms are equipped with some of the latest tech, though they retain their Cordilleran heritage with wood accents and paintings that depict Cordilleran culture.
MI ULTIMO ADIOS. Three versions of Dr. Jose Rizal’s famous last poem are on display at their museum.

Grand Sierra Pines Baguio’s location makes it a good place to stay if you’re looking forward to visiting places like Mines View Park (6-minute drive), Good Shepherd (6-minute drive), Pool of Pines (10 minutes on foot), and The Mansion House (10 minutes on foot). A word of caution, though: Grand Sierra Pines is quite new to Baguio’s taxi drivers, so make sure you remember these two landmarks: Big Strawberry (2-minute walk away) or the Old Marcos Mansion, which is right in front of the hotel.
What makes Grand Sierra Pines Baguio unique from other hotels is that it provides you views of Baguio’s pine trees even though you are outside of Camp John Hay. Its modern design coupled with impeccable service and an emphasis on Cordilleran culture gives you an experience unlike any other.

With two restaurants (The Atrium Lobby Cafe, The Outlook Steak & Grill), a well-kept garden, its own spa, bakery, and its own art gallery and museum (yes, it has its own museum), Grand Sierra Pines is sure to redefine your Baguio experience. You may even say you’ll get a new Baguio experience out of it.
