After cocooning indoors for nearly two summers, people are raring to break free and head for the great outdoors—to a mountain aerie that spells a summer-in-the-mountains experience: multiple contrasting nature views taking the concept of play to a whole new level; where clean, crisp air, sensory indulgences, and a plethora of activities for fun and relaxation abound. And a setting that is far removed from the crowded metropolis is premier mountain resort Tagaytay Highlands, the ultimate summer destination south of the metro for affluent Filipinos.
Tagaytay Highlands offers a mesmerizing vista of scenic Taal Lake. Rising in the distance is Laguna’s mythical Mt. Makiling while Canlubang Valley shimmers in the horizon. Such scenes of uncommon beauty invoke a calm return to one’s self amid these tranquil views.
“Now a much-touted recreational haven, Tagaytay Highlands is where serenity and adventure attain a perfect balance,” says Lennie Mendoza, Senior Vice President of Highlands Prime, Inc., developer of Tagaytay Highlands and a subsidiary of SM Prime Holdings. “Imagine outdoor enthusiasts going trekking, hiking, and swimming. Or dads bonding with their youngsters at the fishing pier, getting on the mountain estate’s bike trails, or even go-karting,” adds Mendoza.
More excitement lies ahead at Tagaytay Highlands Country Club, a three-level sports center that features a slew of pools, an indoor basketball and badminton court, fully equipped gym, a tennis lawn, and a 14-lane bowling center. Surely, healthy and active kids and adults will be spoilt for choice.
Golfing families can also head for Tagaytay Highlands’ top-notch golf courses—the Tagaytay Highlands International Golf Club and Tagaytay Midlands Golf Club, both of which boast championship-level layouts designed in harmony with the natural landscape.
Then, after a spate of indoor and outdoor activities, Spa & Lodge members and their guests can wind down at The Spa and Lodge, a two-level structure that has 25 well-appointed suites. A whole wing of treatment rooms offers spa services, all amid this mountain retreat’s heady, aromatic wood scent of red cedar.
And to wrap up their summer of a lifetime, residents and their guests can indulge their gastronomic passions at Tagaytay Highlands’ many casual and signature restaurants.
With all these complementing Tagaytay Highlands’ themed residential enclaves, well-heeled Filipino families are invited to settle down in their choice of alternative primary home. Options range from lots of sizeable cuts to signature log cabins that evoke Colorado’s mountain havens, as well as luxurious condominium units with their own world-class amenities. Individuals who value their privacy, security, and exclusive lifestyles need not look elsewhere for their premium domiciles.
Moreover, even amid nature’s bounty, Tagaytay Highlands is regarded by career-driven homeowners as conducive to productivity. With precious lessons culled from a pandemic, property seekers who wish to work from home may do so as they step into a new and better normal.
Attesting to Tagaytay Highlands’ commitment to safety and security for all its members, residents, and their guests is its recently awarded “Safety Seal” of the City Government of Tagaytay.
Tagaytay Highlands’ competent club and property management teams ensure that all facilities and personnel will continue to adhere to strict sanitation procedures and safety protocols including disinfection, hand sanitation, wearing of face masks, and social distancing.
Property Management will also remain efficient—from compliance with health and safety precautionary measures to delivery of quick crisis responses during adverse natural and high-risk events.
