I spent the whole day today at Tagaytay Highlands, in Cavite Province. It is a posh country club in a sloppy area of Tagaytay City, surrounded by luscious greeneries (mostly pine trees) and had a captivating view of the Taal Lake. Tagaytay Highlands is a membership only access country club with many amenities that would surely make a family day worthwhile and funfilled. There are many things to do when you are in Tagaytay Highlands. First among these things is of course the very famous cable car ride, where you’ll be treated with a nice view of the surrounding area via a cable car that brings you to the highest peak of the Highland Peaks. The ride is slow and yet you’ll be delighted to see the scenic view on a bird’s eye view perspective.
Aside from the cable car, Tagaytay Highlands also has the following amenities:
- a beautifully landscaped swimming pool,
- a sport center where you can play billiards, bowling and other fun activities,
- a fairly new and small animal farm,
- kart racing track,
- a spa,
- golf course
As for gastronomic delight, Tagaytay Highlands has several restaurants and cafes with fine dining experience. Highly recommended is the buffet lunch at the Veranda (expensive though) which would surely challenge your intestinal capacity. You might also want to try Geraldine’s Soda Fountain where the chocolate milkshare is surely a treat. There is also a cinema beside it where old movies are shown.
It was a very pleasant and relaxing place in Tagaytay indeed, although not everybody can afford the membership fee to the country club. A good strategy is to find friends who are members and ask them to lend their membership rights.
Tagaytay Highlands is an exclusive village..Meaning, only members can get inside…BUT…Members can allow visitors by giving them a visitor’s card..This is one-time entry only. Cable car is the one of the modes of transport…There’s no pay whatsoever.
You will only pay if you use the amenities like swimming pool or hotel rooms…You will also pay if you want to play billiards, bowling, wall climbing, table tennis and the like…Rate is reasonable,comparable to prices in sports club or malls.
For membership is worth 1M+…not sure about the exact amount now way back 2004.
