Hotel & Heritage

In early 1935, then Commonwealth President Manuel L. Quezon expressed interest in developing Tagaytay as a tourist destination. It was he who suggested that Manila Hotel build a lodge and golf course in the area. Because of his fascination with Tagaytay, he held Cabinet meetings on the premises of Taal Vista Lodge when it was finally built.

In 1939, the Zamoras of Manila Hotel built Taal Vista Lodge along “Ilong Kastila”—a stretch of flatland perched atop an incline which people said resembled a nose.

During the Second World War from 1942 to 1944, Taal Vista Lodge was converted to an officers’ quarters for the Japanese. In February 1945, the 11th Airborne Division of the US Army parachuted down onto the Tagaytay Ridge to assist in the liberation of Manila. Between 1956 and 1964 Tagaytay began to be promoted as a major tourist destination in the Philippines with Taal Vista Lodge as one of the leading attractions in the city. One of the many regular visitors of the hotel was a young man who often chose one spot on the grounds from which to gaze out and dream. He is Henry Sy of SM Investments Corporation—the company that would later acquire Taal Vista Hotel

Located an hour away from the hustle and bustle of Manila, Taal Vista Hotel offers accommodation in Tagaytay City. Built in 1939, the English Tudor-styled mansion Hotel has become part of the Filipino heritage. It features an outdoor swimming pool and guests can enjoy meals from 3 dining options or have a drink at the bar. Free WiFi is available throughout the property.

The property is a 5-minute walk away from PAGCOR Casino, and a 10-minute drive from Picnic Grove.

The hotel has stylishly appointed rooms that are all individually air conditioned, and are fully-equipped with modern amenities such as premium bedding, LED cable TV, a fully stocked mini-bar and complimentary WiFi internet access.

Guests can approach the 24-hour front desk for currency exchange, luggage storage and concierge services. A games room is available for guests who wish to stay indoors. Alternatively, guests can indulge in massage treatments at the in-house spa.

Veranda serves up authentic local dishes, as well as a variety of international food items. Alternatively, guests can feast on the weekend lunch buffet featuring the Hotel’s heritage cuisine, a collection of Filipino favourites with a twist.
