When one thinks of a Tagaytay stay that's a cut above the rest, Taal Vista Hotel will always come top of mind.

We won’t even begin to question why. Its timeless charm, excellent location, and superb service and facilities are only some of the reasons why people keep coming back to this well-loved historical landmark.

Whether it’s a road trip with loved ones or just a day trip to indulge in good food, Taal Vista Hotel is always a top choice. Here are 6 reasons why:

1. It’s ideal for a romantic getaway.

You can never go wrong with spending the night at one of the Windy Ridge’s best hotels. The Superior Mountain Wing Room’s classy and elegant interiors will instantly welcome you. A comfy king-sized bed, a daybed to lounge around in, cable TV and Wi-Fi access to keep you connected, and all other premium necessities are there for an ultra-comfortable stay.

While a stay in their well-appointed room sounds tempting enough already, what seals the deal are the postcard-worthy tranquil garden and stunning ridge views from the comforts of your very own space!

2. There’s room for the whole family.

On the other hand, the 2-BR Taal Suite promises a homey sanctuary perfect for the entire family. Your spacious home for the night is well-equipped with modern comforts like 2 king beds fitted with plush sheets, cable TV, Wi-Fi, and other amenities you need for a restful slumber.

Family fun is made even better, thanks to the suite’s very own living area—perfect for watching your favorite movies or shows together, playing board games, or even just catching up. If that doesn’t entice you enough yet, we’re almost positive that the sweeping Taal Lake and Volcano views will do the trick!

3. A feast here is one for all the senses.

A buffet at Taal Vista Hotel's Veranda is the culinary experience you wouldn’t want to miss out on! Truly a feast for the senses, it serves you with unlimited eats to sate cravings you didn’t even know you had, while letting you take advantage of the beauty of a panoramic Taal Lake and Volcano view.

Dine until all your taste buds are satiated with all the flavors from a sublime selection of celebrated Filipino-Continental dishes and best-selling international favorites. Start with the salad bar before making your way through a well-curated selection of dim sum, noodles, freshly made pizza, pasta, and other mains like Porchetta and Tuna Steak. You can even have your delicious meats grilled right in front of you!

Oh, and the desserts selection! Choose from bite-sized pastries to Filipino classics such as Maja Mais (creamy corn pudding) and Kutsinta (steamed rice cake). There's even a DIY halo-halo station too so you can add all the leche flan and ice cream you want! For a healthier option, choose the Tagaytay-grown fresh fruits.

Don’t forget to snap some photos of the gorgeous Taal views, too! If you're lucky, enjoy live music and a traditional folkloric dance that's performed during noontime.

4. Catch-ups are made a little more special.

Great conversations are made better with great drinks and delicious meals. It's even more special when you have a gorgeous view of Taal as your backdrop. Whether you’re sipping on an expertly mixed cocktail at the Tudor-style Lobby Lounge or snacking on freshly baked treats from The Cakeshop, Taal Vista Hotel is a fine place to unwind with good company.

Sample bestsellers like Crispy Taal Lake Tawilis, Thin Crust Pizza, or even their dark chocolate cake, Volcano Eruption. As you indulge in yummy eats, take in fantastic views of verdant gardens and the refreshingly calm Taal Lake. And if you're there at night, enjoy the nightly entertainment of piano music played live in the center.
