A Charming Tagaytay Weekend


Tucked in Tagaytay’s gentle rolling hills are small secret gardens. 

Take your family to one of these charming gardens for a much-needed respite from the chaotic life in the metro. One such place is Nimfa’s – my Mom’s friend. For now, it is only open to family and friends as well as friends of friends, but I’m sure there are others in the area.

relax under the trees on a hammock


The combination of the organic ingredients (picked from their gardens), cool weather, and fresh environment make up for a relaxed and laid-back feeling. (Meals are served as part of the package. You do not need to go out.)


Maruya (banana fritters) and Tarragon Tea for snacks

There are several chapels and retreat houses all around the city that are perfect for those seeking solitude.


Little Souls Sisters Convent and Chapel


You may even stay for the night in a chic cottage just like this.

more beds for everyone


The place is relaxing, the food is great, and the owners are really nice. I wish we were friends so that I can take you there. 🙂






Php 700/head (special rates for families and big groups)
For an additional Php 300, guests can enjoy a full day access to a Country Club and its facilities which include golf, bowling, swimming, badminton, spa, tennis, billiards and more. Php 250 of the guest fee is consumable.
