Taal Vista Hotel is one of the most famous landmarks in Tagaytay City, Philippines. The hotel dates back to 1939, when its predecessor, the Taal Vista Lodge, was built. Soon after its construction, it became known as an icon of Tagaytay and marked the city’s status as a premier tourist destination in Manila.
In 2002, Henry Sy of SM Prime Holdings acquired the property and transformed it into Taal Vista Hotel. TVH aims to give you a complete experience of Tagaytay with the tagline “Let your past meet your present”. What this means is a marriage of the prestigious history of the property combined with upgraded amenities and facilities to ensure a pleasant stay. With features such as in-room Nespresso coffee machines, executive desks, and TVs, you are sure to have a comfortable experience at Taal Vista Hotel.
Taal Vista Hotel is also renowned for its good view of the famous Taal Lake. In the middle of this lake is the Taal Volcano, the second most active volcano in the Philippines and also the smallest active volcano in the world.
For adventurous souls, a trek to the crater of the volcano is a must. One can walk on foot or ride a horse, for an extra fee. The breathtaking view from the top is a worthy reward of the slightly difficult trail. For those who are content to stay indoors, a stunning view can also be seen from Taal Vista Hotel.
Aside from the activities that one can do inside Taal Vista Hotel, key attractions in Tagaytay City are also close to its location. Casino Filipino, for instance, is right across TVH. Slot machines, card games, and performances are all available for your entertainment. Another iconic landmark, the Sky Ranch, is a 5-hectare park near the hotel. One can easily see the gigantic Ferris wheel Sky Eye when checking out the Tagaytay skyline.
These, and other notable locations, such as Caleruega and the Pink Sisters’ Adoration Chapel, are also part of Tagaytay’s rich history. Truly, Taal Vista Hotel lets your past meet your present and hands you a convergence of the past’s nostalgia and the present’s comfort.
