Tagaytay Highlands is probably one of the most recognizable landmarks in Tagaytay. It’s a premier mixed mountain resort and residential commune which combines leisure and rugged luxury amidst Tagaytay’s chilly air. Tagaytay Highlands commands a splendid view of Taal Lake as well as the surrounding mountains.

We were invited by my sister-in-law for a swim and some light snacks at Tagaytay Highlands because it was her daughter’s birthday. Since it was just a day trip, we decided to spend the night at the vacation house in Pueblo del Sol.

Christmas was near so the air was extra cold and the morning fog was exceptionally dense. Nonetheless, a weekend in Tagaytay was always a welcome refuge. Everything just seems idyllic. Even with the huge influx of tourists on weekends, it was still relatively relaxed and slow-paced.

From Pueblo del Sol, we went to Tagaytay Highlands on a Sunday morning. We had heavy breakfast so we just bought food and snacks at the 7-11 convenience store located at the parking lot of Tagaytay Highlands. We spent lunch time at the suite that my sister-in-law’s family booked for the night. Its western vibe made it the perfect home for Tagaytay’s breezy weather.

After our light lunch, we proceeded to the club house so that the kids could try out the swimming pools. While the children were busy frolicking in the pools, we explored the property.

The entire place was big! Just walking around Tagaytay Highlands was already an adventure itself. Plants were abundant in the gardens which provided shade when going around the resort grounds.

At around 3 in the afternoon, we ordered light snacks like nachos, pizza, and pasta. The children were already hungry by this time so they took a break from swimming. After that, they were again immediately at the pool.

We went walking around some more but that was just it. We did not try any activity nor an overnight stay. I heard the rooms were pricey but the views and the amenities were absolutely good.
