With its proximity to the city, Tagaytay is often the destination that offers a quick weekend getaway. It offers a relaxing change from Metro Manila’s heat and congestion, with a majestic view of the Taal Volcano serving as a backdrop for many activities that involve nature and local culture.
Twin Lakes Hotel, which is located along the Tagaytay Corridor, captures the beauty of the locality while offering new activities to try for a perfect family bonding experience. One of its attractions takes advantage of the area's climate and rich soil conditions with a lush vineyard reminiscent of Napa Valley in California. Aside from taking memorable photos among the grapevines, grape picking activities are also available to guests during the harvest months.
According to General Manager Oliver Esguerra, the vineyard is set to produce quality wine that is proudly and distinctly Filipino. “We likewise have plans of opening a wine cellar where guests can expand their knowledge of winemaking and even have the experience of crushing grapes.”
Another attraction is the heated outdoor infinity pool, where guests can soak their stress away while surrounded by the beauty of nature. For those who came for the view of Taal and its “lake within a lake”, there is a view deck available at the property’s Twin Lakes Café with another one located at the poolside area.
The property likewise has a gym, kids’ playroom, and a game room equipped with a pool table for those who enjoy more active pursuits. There is a shopping village located right at the property’s entrance, where guests can purchase their day-to-day needs or hang out for a cup of coffee and a meal at the different available restaurant choices.
