Best Tagaytay Hotels

Tagaytay Hotels

Only your wooden oar will disturb the peace as you paddle through serenely still lake water - in front of the looming cone of the Taal Volcano – during your stay in the nearby city of Tagaytay. The relaxed city enjoys a privileged location - close to Manila – but swamped by outstanding natural beauty, making it a popular destination for Filipinos and overseas visitors alike. Surrounded by vibrant green mountain scenery, its altitude means it’s just above the country’s stiflingly warm air, and offers a cooler base to explore from.

Things to see

Visit Park Grove to fly a kite above the awe-inspiring volcano in the distance, which casts its shadow over the lake like a sundial. Or, soar through the air, with palm tree leaves brushing your feet, on the park’s nerve-jangling zip line. This hillside leisure space, with open carpets of grass, and planked wooden walkways, offers sweeping views down over the lake and beyond. While you’re up above the clouds and morning mists, you can also pay the People’s Park in the Sky a visit - which offers similarly majestic views, and is easily accessible thanks to the tricycles and taxis that trundle up the steep incline. In the park, small streams and waterfalls provide the soothing soundtrack and, on clear days, you can see as far as Manila from the mountain’s peak which - at 709 meters tall - is the highest in the province. Head back to Tagaytay to see scaly snakes slithering, and well fed lions and tigers prowling, at the Residence Inn Zoo. Or, sail out to the lake’s large volcano, and arrange a daring horse ride up the slopes. You’ll journey past gently smoking cracks, and craggy scenery, as your horse expertly negotiates the mars-like environment. Gasp in amazement as the stunning Crater Lake’s turquoise waters are revealed inside the volcano’s cone.

Hotels in Tagaytay

You’ll easily find meditative peace at one of the luxury hotels in Tagaytay, where the smell of sweet lavender lingers from the natural oils that expert masseuses rub into the aching backs of guests. Sleep in a room with large, sliding doors - which open out to stunning views of the volcano - and allow you to eat breakfast on a balcony in the morning sun. The city’s mid-range options are also high quality, offering wooden decked patios - which give way to glowing swimming pools - and bright, breezy rooms. Cheap hostels have the basics all backpackers crave, like WiFi, comfy beds, and washing facilities.

Where to stay

Stay in Tagaytay City itself to get an authentic taste of the Philippines. Be sure to wander around the jovial bars and restaurants, sampling seasoned crispy crablets, or Tagaytay’s own Bulalo – a meaty beef soup with a rich flavor. If you’re craving a taste of home, you’ll find familiar, multinational coffee chains and fast food outlets, mingling with the traditional options. Staying here will give you the chance to stock up on supplies at Summit Ridge Promenade, where the shelves are lined with useful, pocket-sized, sachets of essentials like coffee and shampoo – perfect for backpackers.

How to get to Tagaytay

By far the easiest way to get to Tagaytay is to fly into Manila’s large international airport. You can rent a car from the airport, and then take the 1 hour 15 minute drive up the South Luzon Expressway. Or, simply jump on one of the many bus services. Taxis and tricycles are very reasonably priced, and are a great way to hop around the town and surrounding area.
