A WEEKEND WITH A GREAT VIEW AND FOOD: TAAL VISTA HOTEL TAGAYTAY

by - 6:33 PM


The last time I had a weekend getaway at Taal Vista Hotel was when I attended a wedding for a good friend of mine and a fraternity brother in law school.  It was one of the relaxing moments as I recall, because everything we need for a short vacation was within the confines of the hotel.  We had no time to wander (or we ditched the idea) of roaming around the city.

On the same experience I had years ago, I am back at the Taal Vista Hotel together with my travel buddies.  And as expected, this will be mostly of food tasting and lounging with a view of the famed Taal Lake and Volcano.


DELUXE QUEEN ROOM

The Sky Ranch was a constant daily view and we were assigned at a Deluxe Queen room with one queen bed and one single bed.  The 30-sqm room became our refuge for the rainy weather while in Tagaytay City.  It has all the basic room amenities that even contributed to the laziness for us to wander.

I commend the room and housekeeping service of the hotel as well, for being prompt and attentive to all our needs.

LOBBY LOUNGE

We arrived late in a Friday evening due to heavy traffic.  It was almost midnight.  And as expected, in-house restaurants are already closed for us to be served our dinner (very late dinner).

Fortunately, there is the Lobby Lounge to the rescue serving an equally gastronomical experience, though not on full meals.  The Lobby Lounge is known as a perfect setting for guests to enjoy house-blended cocktails and fine selection of wines.

The Lobby Lounge was a good introduction of how elegant and posh the service and stay will be at the hotel.  The architectural design was remarkable that makes the lobby lounge spacious, providing a good view of the Taal volcano.

VERANDA

For the duration of our stay at Taal Vista Hotel, the Veranda has served as our kitchen.  The Veranda is one of the in-house restaurants of the hotel, where our complimentary buffet breakfast is served.  Aside from being spacious, the view itself is also a good factor while dining at the Veranda.

The variety of continental and Filipino heirloom dishes while enjoying the afternoon breeze and the panoramic view of the Taal Lake and Volcano is one of its major selling points.  The Veranda is an all-day dining restaurant and is open daily from 6:00 AM to 11:00 PM.

STRATEGIC LOCATION

Tagaytay City has a lot to offer and though Taal Vista Hotel may be quite far from the city center and the commercial activities, it has something unique to offer for its guests – an experience that is not only within the confines of the hotel but of the nearby restaurants and landmark attractions.

Guests of the hotel are given a private access to the Sky Ranch, which could be arranged with the hotel’s customer service.  The Sky Ranch is an amusement park replete with traditional and usual carnival rides for kids and kids at heart, restaurants and souvenir shops.  The Sky Eye (Ferris wheel) is said to be one of the biggest in the country and has served as a landmark in Tagaytay City.

And for concerns on drinking spree, as the hotel seems to be isolated from the other bars and restaurants of the city, there is the newly opened The Barracks Food Camp.

Truly, a stay at the Taal Vista Hotel can be marked as one for comfort, convenience and a true definition of a complete-package stay.
