Having a weekend getaway every now and then is advisable to help you recharge from the day to day activities you do at work and at home. It is one way to unwind, relax, bond with family and catch up with each other’s lives. Doing a vacation and creating memories together will make you happier compared to buying material things as some studies have shown. But family vacations have evolved throughout the years. Now, there are more vacation spots and hotel accommodations to choose from and it’s easy as 123 to book using online booking sites like Traveloka to compare prices and amenities.
If you want to go out of the metro, one of the best and nearest area from Metro Manila is Cavite. When you say Cavite, of course the well-known area is Tagaytay because of the cold climate there. But we also found a new place in Silang that you could also consider when you want a quick get away.
Cavite is full of surprises, you can have a city tour and even visit historical places, go on a food trip, have an adventure and do some mountain climbing, visit some animals in the zoo, visit a theme park or just plainly enjoy the scenery along the way.
Vacation helps shrink stress and anxiety. Studies also says that children who witness their parents and grandparents having fun, and enjoying life learn valuable lessons about life themselves. Having a full love tank will help them thrive in today’s uncertainties.
Here’s a list of some hotels we went to and some areas that we want to visit also because of good reviews.
NURTURE WELLNESS VILLAGE – this is the first area in Tagaytay we had a staycation on. It is a secluded area which is good because it is far from the noise and crowd of the busy city. Everything here is wonderful, besides making sure you’ll get a good night sleep, they also provide massage services and organic food. They also have a detox program if you want to lose weight or just naturally clean your body system. Awesome right?
Address: Pulong Sagingan Barangay Maitim 2nd West, Maitim Dos St, Tagaytay, 4120 Cavite
TAAL VISTA HOTEL – the famous Taal Vista Hotel is one of the hotels we’ve visited in Tagaytay also. I recommend this hotel for those who have kids who wants to visit Skyranch or try the famous Mushroom Burger. This hotel is the nearest in these places. They also have the best view of the smallest active volcano in the world- Taal. If you want to have a tour to the said volcano, they can arrange a day trip there too.
Address: Kilometer 60, Philippines 4120, Emilio Aguinaldo Hwy, Tagaytay, Cavite
CROSSWINDS RESORT SUITES – it is a Swiss-inspired community with hotel accommodation for guests. This area has picturesque views that will make you want to live here. It is near Picnic Grove and The Flower Farm. What I like about this place is that you can cook your own food in the comforts of your own room.
Address: Crosswinds, Brgy. Iruhin Central Calamba Road, Tagaytay, 4120 Cavite
HOTEL KIMBERLY TAGAYTAY – we haven’t been here but I am planning to visit this place soon. What I like about this area is that they have their own petting zoo, a huge playground for the kids, indoor play areas like billiards and table tennis and of course swimming pool.
Address: Amadeo Road, Brgy. Kaybagal North, Crisanto Ave., Tagaytay, Cavite, Philippines
MOUNT SEA RESORT – this place is our recent discovery. It is located in Rosario Cavite. Our family enjoyed our overnight stay here very much. They provide good food, comfy bed and kid friendly swimming pool. They also have a gym and indoor activity area.
Address: 163 Marseilla, Rosario, 4106 Cavite
So if you’re in need of a brain break, a detour from deadlines and a timeout from technology then why not have a staycation alone but I’m sure it’s better if you’re with your family. Enjoy!!!
