More Moments to Share at Taal Vista Hotel

There are moments in my life that I prefer to be alone – I just like savoring a quiet time where I get to talk to myself, set limitations, list new goals and relax my emotions. However, most of the time, I still prefer being surrounded by people especially with positive, fun, “influential” and loving people like my friends. Thanks to Taal Vista Hotel, my recent weekend getaway with friends was made more memorable and meaningful with its luxurious but convenient accommodation, comforting and filling meals and one-of-a-kind services and amenities.

Just a few hours south of Metro Manila, city dwellers usually flocked to Tagaytay City to get a glimpse of the world-renowned Taal Volcano as well as to enjoy the cool weather of Tagaytay. Our group checked-in at the Taal Vista Hotel around pass lunchtime, welcomed by the traditional music coming from the folk dance performers of the Veranda, Taal Vista Hotel’s main restaurant.

We were still full from our breakfast, but since Veranda’s ambiance is so inviting, and its buffet spread is nothing short of the most comforting Filipino food we craved for, we feasted on their offerings while enjoying the performances that any local or international guest shouldn’t miss. 

Taking a little walk from our filling lunch, we saw how Taal Vista takes pride of its history. Hence, if you will go around the hallways to its ballrooms, you’ll see pictures and stories of the place posted in its walls – hey, it’s one of the oldest yet well-maintained structures in the city.

Finding comfort from our all-time favorite comfort food – pizza - by the afternoon, our group spent some time in Taza Fresh Table, a more private dining spot in the hotel offering fresh meals and homey feel and services. By dinner, we went back to Veranda since the weather is getting unpredictably cold and rainy. Well, nothing beats a warm soup and a copy dining place with good music, right?

We savored that Saturday night by lounging in the hotel’s lobby enjoying their latest offering, the Bubble Milktea and right after, sipping some cocktails by the bar while listening to the guest acoustic band playing.

The following morning, despite of the cold weather, we jumped in to the pool. 

Moments like these were something to treasure that will be forever grateful.
