Baguio Country Club

The Baguio Country Club is exclusive for members only, so getting a chance to stay in this hotel doesn't come often. We stayed for a night at one of the Penthouses owned by San Miguel, our client. BCC may be exclusive, but it looks older than nearby Manor in Camp John Hay. The rooms also need to be refurbished, and the structure, well, does look tired. Though most guests are here for the golf, BCC's exclusivity gives it the class it deserves.

BCC is probably best known for its wonderful bakeshop, aptly called Raisin Bread. Whenever I go to Baguio, I try to pass by BCC to buy fresh raisin and banana bread. BCC also makes tempting cakes and desserts, some of which are sold in Starbucks and Figaro in Baguio.

You must absolutely try their raisin bread and banana bread, though I must say that during my last visit, the banana bread was not at its best. In any case, the popularity of their breads and pastries has truly been established. You even have to reserve your order a day in advance to make sure you don't loose some fresh stock. That in itself says a lot.
