This Tagaytay Escape is Where You Can Experience Oriental-Style Healing

Ever wanted to achieve perfect balance? At Qiwellness Living Tagaytay, it's easier than you think.

At Qiwellness Living Tagaytay, balance is at the foundation. A sensorial experience like no other, this teahouse + bathhouse is a sanctuary where you can simply clear your mind, body, and soul.

With touches of traditional Chinese culture and architecture, this haven crafts a personal healing journey through its intimate setting, teahouse dining experience, and blissful pampering treatments. Everything about the place and what it offers revolves around the concept of the yin yang, or the quintessential balance between two opposites.

Upon opening the tall red doors of this teahouse and bathhouse, the sound of the gong announces your arrival and officially welcomes you. You’ll instantly feel transported into another world—it's a serene oasis overlooking gorgeous views of Taal Lake and Volcano.

Be greeted by tones of gray in minimalist architecture and modern finishing that are surprisingly homier than one would imagine. Designed by Budji Layug and Royal Pineda, Qiwellness Living Tagaytay's interiors incorporate elements of a traditional Chinese spa and teahouse, creating a one-of-a-kind synergy between the old and the new.

Qiwellness Living Tagaytay is also where you can find stillness. It's a place where you can leave all your troubles behind. The mellow sounds of chirping birds and Oriental music blend seamlessly with nature, creating a sanctuary where it's all about being in the present.

Indulge in a purely intimate and relaxing journey when you buy this deal for a Yin Yang Rejuvenation Package for 2 that’s inclusive of an overnight stay, an 8-course degustation dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine, 2 of their signature massages, and a dimsum and congee breakfast.

Make your way down the crisscrossing staircase and head over to The Teahouse and enjoy front row seats to arguably one of the country’s most spectacular views. Relish the cool Tagaytay breeze that's best enjoyed with a masterfully made cocktail. Try their Sze Chuan, a delightful blend of tequila, amaretto liquor, and spices or the The Concubine that’s a refreshing mix of passion fruit and gin.

What’s visiting a holistic destination without pampering yourself with a reinvigorating rubdown? Surrender all your worries and tensions to The Bathhouse’s signature treatments.

If you’re seeking for a little more calmness within, their 90-Minute Silk Massage will definitely be your best bet! Rid yourself of unwanted tensions as this signature massage makes use of lymphatic drainage massage techniques to help address physical and emotional stress.

Allow your problems to be kneaded away with the most relieving massage you’ll ever get—relaxation, rejuvenation, and renewal guaranteed!

Meals are made memorable back at The Teahouse, where the art of eating means savoring a great meal with a stunning view as your backdrop. The clincher here is their 8-Course Yin Yang Spring Degustation.

With a menu that changes every season, it guarantees a unique sensorial dining experience each and every time. It prides itself on balancing out subtle flavors and textures so that nothing stands out on its own—including the plating!

Start your culinary extravaganza with their fresh catch of the day that’s drizzled with lemon shallots vinaigrette, pickled beets, and squid ink crisps. Let the flavors of Mushroom Duxelle entice you; it’s perfectly paired with purple yam and potato ravioli.

Warm yourself up with Chicken Breast in 72-hour broth topped with scallion ginger and crispy skin. While you’re at it, try to guess the Filipino delicacy it’s highly reminiscent of!

Next, move on to your mains: the first of which is a melt-in-your-mouth Cod with pineapple chutney, anise froth, and nori risotto.

Delight in tender Pork Belly complemented with sherry, pork tail croquette, sweet potato purée, and charred eggplant.

Savor a delectable Duck Breast that rests alongside mung beans, wasabi cauliflower purée, ponzu, and pickled beets.

Sink your teeth into a succulent slab of Veal Cheek that’s best eaten with truffle potato and vegetables that come with it.

End your lavish meal on the sweetest note possible with White Chocolate Matcha Mousse accompanied by burnt milk soil and popcorn ice cream. It’s truly an unforgettable meal you thought you could only dream of!

Make this dream meal come true when you buy this deal for an 8-Course Yin Yang Spring Degustation Lunch OR Dinner here.

Just when you think you’re relaxed enough to call it a night—think again! Head to the lounge chairs by the Yin Yang dipping pools for your 45-Minute Qireflexology Massage. This flowing full-body massage focuses on pressure points and nerve endings on your ears, hands, and feet.

While it may be a common idea to take a dip in their Yin Yang Hot and Cold Soaking Pools in the afternoon as you gaze out onto Tagaytay’s sprawling views, we were lucky to have the owners tell us a little hack: going into the cold pool is best done after a comforting soak in the 40-degree hot pool. Why? Because you’ll sleep like a baby through the night—tried, tested, and we couldn’t agree more!

Afterwards, it’s only fitting that you prepare yourself for a restful slumber at The Guesthouse. Ultra-private and often secluded, it’s designed with the same mix of traditional Chinese-inspired elements merged with modern minimalism.

Before calling it a night, indulge in a steam shower in the comforts of your very own room! Now, you’re fully relaxed and ready to sink into the covers of your bed. We’re almost certain you’ll wake up re-energized with a greater sense of peace and well-being.

We would highly advise you to get up at the crack of dawn to witness as orange, yellow, and blue skies dance into the sunrise, making for a view that’s comparable to none! But if you’re not a morning person and that spectacle doesn’t give you enough reason to get up early, we’re sure a scrumptious Congee and Dimsum Breakfast will.

Prepare your congee to your liking as you top it with your desired condiments. For a variety of texture and taste, enjoy a premium selection of dim-sum to complete your hearty meal!

These classic Chinese favorites come in with a visual feast, too! Bask in the early morning sun at The Teahouse’s open deck as you marvel at the stunning Taal Lake and Volcano set against pastel blue skies.

Truly a trip for the senses, a visit to Qiwellness Living Tagaytay will have you making this wellness destination your one-stop spot for when you seek peace, tranquility, and balance.
