There is nothing quite like living in a place where it always feels like a getaway.
Over the years, Tagaytay Highlands has become the destination of choice of the country’s affluent lot who appreciates the exclusivity and leisurely life it offers.
As the only mountain resort of its kind and scale near the metro, the development is constantly seen as a game-changer in luxury mountain resort in Asia.
In fact, Tagaytay Highlands was listed by Bloomberg as one of “The Hamptons of Asia” in a feature in September that revealed where the region’s ultra-rich people are spending their weekends as they gear up for the best weather of the year. The mountain resort complex was listed among other popular havens in the region such as Bali in Indonesia, Karuizawa in Japan, Alibaug in India, and Phuket in Thailand.
Today, it celebrates more than two decades of exclusive mountainside resort living with world-class services and an extensive portfolio of luxury homes for its members and residents—ranging from log cabins to hilltop lot properties to condominiums.
Headlining Tagaytay Highlands’ signature log cabin communities is Woodlands Point, a charming community of contemporary ski resort-inspired luxury log cabins, ranging from 239 to 320 square meters, made of Western red cedar imported from the highlands of Canada. Sitting on one of the most elevated terrains of the property, Woodlands Point is a timeless hideaway enveloped by thousands of Norfolk pine trees and panoramic vistas of the Canlubang countryside, Laguna de Bay, and verdant mountains.
Families who aspire for a picture-perfect vacation home amidst nature can settle at Horizon Terraces. This 3.2-hectare community features a fine selection of Asian contemporary garden suites and villas set against panoramic nature vistas of Mt Makiling, Midlands Golf Course, Taal Lake, and its own lush central park. The Garden Suites is perfect for a quick weekend escape from the bustling metropolis with well-planned one- and two- bedroom units, with areas ranging from 43 to 68 square meters. The Garden Villas is for large families, featuring well-appointed three-bedroom townhouses highlighted by a multifunctional space or den on the ground floor.
Nestled at the heart of Tagaytay Midlands is Sycamore Heights, a contemporary Asian-themed community of homes featuring modern elements of earth tones in lots ranging from 250 to 959 square meters. This sought-after community is bounded by breathtaking views of the Taal Lake and Volcano, the Midlands fairways, and the mountainside with nature-inspired amenities amidst lush, wide open spaces.
Residents can savor a laid-back yet vibrant lifestyle in their home at Vireya, the first and only tropical resort community in Tagaytay Highlands that perfectly blends the cool mist of the mountains with the warmth of the tropics. With the scenic Taal Lake and Mt. Makiling at a far distant, tropical-inspired homes can be built on 250 to 562 square meter lots with elements of wood and wide glass windows to let the verdant outdoors in. Staying true to its vision of a holistic living, Vireya presents diverse points of interests within the community—exclusive leisure amenities that promote wellness and adventure right at their doorstep.
To cap all of this, Tagaytay Highlands is everything the affluent set needs to make lasting memories, thanks to its wide array of world-class services and recreational amenities accessed through membership rights at The Country Club.
Indoor sports facilities include swimming, tennis, bowling, and badminton and other outdoor pursuits such as Pedal Go Kart Racing, Sporting Arrow, and life-size board games at the Supersized Game Park.
Tagaytay Highlands also offers foodies a number of specialty restaurants and dining places such as the popular Highlander Steakhouse, Highlands China Palace, and Gourmet Avenue.
