Taal Vista Hotel Review
Atop the high Tagaytay Ridge is Taal Vista Hotel (check rates), a pioneer hotel that has set the standards for countryside living in Tagaytay.
Built in 1939, Taal Vista Hotel’s rich heritage carries the reputation of being the best, if not one of the best hotels, as well as the most sought-after hotel for leisure and business in Tagaytay.

From the main entrance, you could count on a butler to carry your things and open the door for you, with chivalry and a genuine smile. He will escort you to the front desk where you will receive more warmth and friendliness from the staff, as she processes your reservation.
Once your key card is with you, your wonderful butler will lead you to your room.
This English Tudor Mansion-style hotel is marked by two wings, the Mountain Wing, which is the old building with lots of history, faces the mountains bordering Taal City; and the Lake Wing, which covers a magnificent view of Taal Lake and the volcanoes within.
The two wings compose a total of 261 stylish rooms that are guaranteed to spoil your fancies.

Each room has a quiet A/C, a sliding cabinet equipped with an iron, safety deposit box, hangers, two clean cotton robes and two bedroom slippers; a minimalist style bathroom with a premium bathroom kit; cozy beds and pillows with snug linens, a wide LCD monitor; a classic dressing table; a mini-refrigerator; a table for the luggage; a phone that connects you to the hotel’s efficient staff, especially the one who is ready to take your order from the appetizing in-room menu; amazingly fast WIFI; and a balcony that lets you absorb the inspiring view of the nature around.
At the base of the rooms are the hotel’s verdant grounds. This finely manicured area is laid out with soft Bermuda grass that rolls around flourishing trees and paved paths. Whilst the loving touch of a green thumb, these grounds make for a perfect area to do yoga or circuit training, and as a wonderful playground for children.
Where fitness and wellness are concerned, the grounds’ paved paths lead to a building that houses a recreation area where you can play billiards and pingpong, a Kids’Club where you can let your kids read and play, while you sweat it out at the gym next door, the Asmara Spa, where you can indulge in holistic treatments that use only natural ingredients, and the swimming pool, which has a wading pool for kids.
On special gatherings, the hotel has all the provisions needed to execute all kinds of events, such as parties, business conferences, awarding ceremonies, and of course, weddings. It has four ballrooms, 12 function rooms, and they are all a breath away from the scenic Taal Lake.
And when the body’s exhausted from all the fun and activities, there are the hotel’s three dining areas to take refuge in.
You can have your complimentary breakfast, and Filipino-Continental cuisine at the Veranda, which offers a view of the Taal Volcano, as well as the weekend cultural presentations.
For a satisfying moment of light snacks and cocktails, warm up at the Lobby Lounge’s fireplace and delight in sandwiches, pizza or dessert, paired with house-blended cocktails or fine wine from the hotel’s vast selection.
Taza Restaurant, on the other hand, boasts an ingenious menu of international cuisine prepared by internationally-trained Chef Jayme Natividad.
Chef Jayme sources the finest ingredients in the country and in the hotel’s own Organic Garden, as he is committed to serving only fresh, organic, single-origin and sustainable ingredients.
Here, you can indulge in its refreshing breakfast buffet for an upgraded value, and enjoy a hearty meal of wood-baked pizza, handmade pasta, slow-cooked meals, garden-fresh salads, fresh caught fish, and Mediterranean dips with fresh fruit juices.
