🏘 Camp John Hay ⛳️
Established on October 25, 1903 , it has undergone major changes over its 100-year history. But I’ll spare you the lengthy history lesson. The short of it is this: Formerly an R&R (rest and recreation) station exclusively for the US Armed Forces in the Philippines, the camp was named after Pres. Theodore Roosevelt’s Secretary of State John Milton Hay. It was bombed by attacking Japanese forces during World War II, and fell back in the hands of the Americans in 1945. Almost half a century later, it was turned over to the Philippine government, which transformed the site into a tourist attraction.
A visit to Baguio City is never complete without a stop at Camp John Hay. The place has everything everyone loves about the city — recreation and a respite from the heavy jolt of urban living. Here are 7 activities in Camp John Hay that you might find refreshing.
THE MANOR at Camp John Hay is designed by renowned Recio +Casas Architects firm.
CAMP JOHN Hay’s history had undergone a colorful, storied—and sometimes traumatic path—for 80 years. It served as a rest and recreation base for the American soldiers and a concentration camp for the Japanese nationals. During the World War II it was reduced to ruins. Decades and many presidents later, the sprawling property has come to be known a scenic mountain resort and home to the world-class The Manor Hotel in Baguio City.
Built in 2000, the hotel structure has drawn unparalleled attention with its impressive structure taking concept from forest log cabins set amid a backdrop of towering pine trees. Its interiors evoke a Filipino-Colonial feel with paneled walls, wooden furniture and outdoor patios.
