Tagaytay Staycation: Taal Vista Hotel Premiere King Room


We booked a weekend staycation at Taal Vista Hotel last month to celebrate my birthday. We’ve been meaning to go to Tagaytay ever since it opened to tourists on September, but the rules kept changing so we held off. Eventually we were able to push through with the trip, lucky enough to have come during a period when requirements weren’t that strict. No need for travel pass, health certificate, and the hotel also didn’t require a negative COVID test. The only requirement is that you fill out a health declaration form when you arrive, and wear your face mask and face shield at all times. They also don’t allow Monday check-ins at this time so do note that when you’re planning to go to Tagaytay. LGU has ordered establishments to shut down on Mondays for disinfection.

Here’s a video of the room tour! Please watch, like, and subscribe! 🙂

On to the blabber…

I really like the room that we got. It’s a Premiere King Room with a lake view and it’s stunning!

  • Super comfy king sized bed
  • Big windows with roller blinds
  • Large cabled TV
  • Amazing Taal view
  • Basement and open parking available
  • Room service
  • Swimming pool (not sure if heated)
  • Fitness gym
  • Viewing deck
  • Restaurants
  • There’s Casino Filipino and McDonald’s across the hotel

There’s also a water pitcher by the desk that you can refill from the water station by the hallway.

Yup! There are water stations placed along the hallway for your drinking water needs. It dispenses hot and cold water and it’s just so convenient. I actually love this feature because we didn’t need to buy our own water or keep asking for water bottles from housekeeping.

The TV is big but the smart feature is disabled, meaning you can’t watch Netflix or Youtube or whatever. Good thing we brought our Xiaomi Mi TV stick with us so we were able to binge watch Parks and Recreation during our stay!

They also have a hygeine kit like this, containing face masks, alcohol, and wipes.

These are the bathroom essentials…
Body wash, shampoo, and conditioner are fixed on the wall

Breakfast buffet is served from 6am to 10:30am (IIRC) at the Veranda restaurant…

When we stayed over the weekend, I was actually concerned that we have a neighbor. I thought hotel occupancy is limited and guests should be at least one room apart from each other.
It gets noisy when someone hangs out at the balcony. You can literally hear them and it’s very easy to peek over at their side as well. You can see through the balcony windows and people can look up to you when they’re down at the open area. It’s a bummer that we weren’t able to enjoy the balcony that way. It’s noisy and not that private. 🙁
Hallways can get pretty noisy with footsteps as well. The room we got has a connecting door too, so that’s less sound barrier for us. Privacy tip: Try to get a corner room and make sure you don’t get a connecting room hehe!

We had a chance to walk around the hotel and found how expansive it is! The Lake View rooms are separate from the Mountain and Ridge view rooms. 

That’s where the other guest rooms are. It’s a long walk from the Lake View area, and tbh the building looks old. I’m sure the rooms are upgraded though! Hehe the facade reminds me of a dorm though. The pool and gym area are near this side so if you’re up for the pool, this area is cool! Maybe it’s quieter here? Hmm…

Yeah I guess that’s about it. Despite the noise and lack of privacy at the balcony, we had a very enjoyable stay. We ordered twice from their room service and in fairness, ang sarap and the price is reasonable too. The staff are very courteous and nice and I would love to stay here again in the future.

We got the Premiere King Room for ₱6,500/night (promo).
