We badly needed to unwind from a stress-filled week. Hubby’s work schedule of late has been pretty toxic. I myself could hardly breathe juggling multiple tasks (doing my online work, performing household chores, and reviewing my son for his first trimestral exams), and our young man racked his brain last week to get decent scores in the trimestral tests. And so we went to One Tagaytay Place Hotel Suites last Friday for a weekend overnight getaway.

Hubby booked in advance a Deluxe Room (Php6,800) which is good for 2 persons. Kids under 12 years old are free of charge if they’re sharing bed with adults, so we didn’t pay extra for our son.

• Premium 300-thread count, 100% cotton duvet cover

• Kitchenette with cooking and coffee-/tea-making facilities
• Refrigerator

It was almost 4pm when we arrived at One Tagaytay Place, and our stomachs were already grumbling because we haven’t had lunch yet. Because we were tired, we opted for room service and ordered hubby’s favorite combination of food: One Tagaytay Bulalo and Crispy Fried Tawilis.

We didn’t have to wait long for our food. Tempting eh? You bet we had a hearty lunch. See my post on this in Delight My Appetite.

After eating, we rested for a while, and then we headed to the pool area.

There’s a small pool for kids and a bigger pool for adults. Justin was lucky to have found a playmate in the kiddie pool. After two hours in the water, we finally went back to our room and got ourselves ready for dinner at Azalea Restaurant downstairs.

We had buffet breakfast the next day, but I wasn’t able to take pictures of the food in our plates. And because Justin hasn’t had enough swimming time, he requested his Dad for one more hour at the pool before we finally leave One Tagaytay Place.

That’s when Justin actually learned how to swim. Now, he’s bugging me every day to take him to the condo pool because he enjoys swimming now more than ever.

Here’s a list of the things we love about One Tagaytay Place:
• The place is clean and well-maintained.
• The hotel staff are courteous and friendly.
• The food at the Azalea Restaurant is delicious.
• It’s just a few hours away from Ortigas.
• If you’re an Emerald Card holder, you get to avail of such benefits as vouchers for complimentary roomnights in a Deluxe Room with complimentary breakfast for 2, 1-plus-1 or 2-plus-1 promo valid in all room categories, and many more.

And here’s what we observed:
• The Deluxe Room is a little cramped, only 26 sqm, so there’s not much space to walk around (or run around in if you have kids). If you want to feel really comfortable, I suggest you get a bigger room.
• The prices of the food at Azalea Restaurant are quite high, but the servings are generous.
• The kiddie pool is quite small. It’s a good thing that Justin and another boy younger than him were the only ones in the water on our first night at One Tagaytay Place.
• From the time we arrived up to the time we’re about to sleep, we’ve been hearing the loud voices of people singing at the nearby karaoke place. That didn’t prevent us from having a good night’s sleep, however, as both hubby and I are late sleepers and Justin was unmindful of the noise.

Overall, our weekend overnight getaway at One Tagaytay Place was pleasant, but one day simply wasn’t enough. We plan to go back there again soon.

  1. I don’t think I’ve been to One Tagaytay Place, it looks gorgeous! You definitely need time to unwind especially if you and hubby are working too hard. Congrats to Justin for learning how to swim!

    When I saw the photo of the tawalis, I can’t wait to eat them again when I visit Pinas soon.

  2. It sure looks like a nice play to stay. I haven’t been to Tagaytay lately. Last time I was there was in the 90s before graduating for college. 🙂 Time flies and I’m sure it already has plenty of developed residential areas and places to visit for the whole family.

    The hotel looks nice and the amenities are fabulous. I would like to book there and experience cooking on our own rather than buying food outside just to use up their amenities. 🙂

  3. everybody need a break..i think especially with the lifestyle there in Manila. i mean the traffic and everything in daily chores..
    This reminds me to have quality time with my baby love.
