The romance-laced city of Tagaytay needs no introduction.

Besides its spellbinding views of Taal Lake and its reinvigorating climate, the Windy Ridge has stolen the hearts of travelers of all kinds for its easy accessibility from Manila. All throughout the years, the crowd-favorite locale has sprung forth well-loved restaurants, cozy lodging spaces, and sought-after tourist spots that make for the ultimate urban escape.

Even the most discerning travelers need not search hard for a place to call home in Tagaytay. Lately, there has been a dreamy, castle-like structure that everyone has been buzzing about.

Twin Lakes Hotel Tagaytay: The Philippines’ first modern vineyard hotel

Opening its doors in December 2018, Twin Lakes Hotel Tagaytay may be easy to miss, but only because it’s nestled in an enclave of only the most promising tourism estate in Tagaytay to date.

The hotel is within the 1,200-hectare Twin Lakes Estate, a tourism estate developed by Megaworld’s subsidiary, Global-Estate Resorts, Inc (GERI). A mix of natural and man-made wonders, the masterfully designed locale prides itself in upscale residential condominiums, a man-made lake, commercial and retail hubs, a university park, and a nature park.

While its grape-growing vineyard has yet to come into full fruition, the hotel is already fully booked for the most part in the next few months—a testament to how much guests want a taste of this noteworthy stay. Revered as the first vineyard resort in the Philippines, the hotel raises the bar by providing its guests luxury, dynamism, and accessibility that make for an unparalleled Tagaytay experience.

Marvel at its castle-like exterior and contemporary interiors

Upon entering Twin Lakes Hotel Tagaytay’s roundabout driveway, you are greeted by its enchanting facade bearing semblance to Old European architecture. Step inside its immense lobby and be awed by the hotel’s high ceilings, polished flooring, and contemporary interiors that epitomize opulence.

Just as royalty is treated, you will be served with refreshments from their attentive staff while checking in. Enjoy your drink on plush seats and set down your glass on the lobby’s marble tables worthy of eye-candy Instagram photos. The lobby, being as capacious as it could be, beholds a tranquil atmosphere with hushed ambient music in the background—perfect for intimate conversations or solitary moments of contemplation.

Explore the lobby further and find your way to its winding balcony, where a glorious view of the heated infinity pool overlooking unobstructed views of Taal Lake and Volcano is yours to immerse in. A seasoned Tagaytay traveler may be well-versed with the best spots that offer Tagaytay’s prized scenery, but Twin Lakes Hotel Tagaytay’s unadulterated view is one that is simply hard to match.

Luxuriate in a classy room decked with a bathtub and a balcony

With over 120 rooms, Twin Lakes Hotel Tagaytay prides itself on its highly kept amenities, meticulous cleanliness, and superior design.

The hotel’s rooms and hallways are tastefully decorated with paintings of flora, fauna, and nature landscapes that are truly a visual feast. Indulge in interiors designed with a sophisticated color motif of beiges, whites, and blues—a mix that evokes airiness and a sense of calm.

Most notable is that each room is decked with a spacious balcony overlooking a majestic perspective of Taal Lake, meaning each guest is promised an absolutely stunning room view. At the end of a long day, treat yourself to some R&R in your swanky bathtub; the bathroom has a glass divider separating it from the bedroom, a unique feat that makes each room all the more special. (Worried about privacy? It comes with adjustable blinds!)

Take a dip in its heated infinity pool overlooking the enchanting Taal Lake

Despite Tagaytay being known for chilly weather, it remains a challenge to find establishments in the area decked with a heated pool. But in this hotel, lather on some sunscreen and don your favorite swimsuit, since it’s arguably one of the best places—if not the best place—to take a dip in Tagaytay.

In the hotel’s heated infinity pool, you can stay toasty while marveling at a stunning view of Taal Lake. Bask on the reclining sunbeds to work on your glowy tan, read a book, and sip on refreshments for utmost relaxation.

Did we mention that this hotel is PWD-friendly, too? The pool area is thoughtfully designed with handrails and ramps fit for PWDs, not to mention kids and the elderly as well. The rest of the hotel is just as safe with its wide, spacious areas, flat pathways, and elevators. With these meticulous details, Twin Lakes Hotel Tagaytay is the perfect spot for a quick getaway with all your loved ones.

Say ‘yes!’ to your cravings at Twin Lakes Cafe and its surrounding restos

Never go hungry during your stay. Located in the hotel’s ground floor is the in-house Twin Lakes Cafe, boasting one of the most romantic views in Tagaytay and delicious eats that are sure to satisfy. Enjoy your meal indoors, or dine alfresco in its spacious and airy balcony.

Feel like grabbing a bite outside? The Twin Lakes estate is home to a selection of well-loved restaurants that will tickle your fancy. Delight in eats from Bag of Beans, La Creperie, The Farm Organics, Santi’s Delicatessen, Bagoong Club, Silver Bucket, and Buon Giorno! Buy your pasalubong from Amira’s Buco Tart Haus, and make sure to get your coffee fix at what’s popularly known as “The most beautiful Starbucks in the Philippines”.
