View Park Hotel Tagaytay: True Love at First Sight

It was a semi-rainy morning when Gerd and I got ready for our latest trip to Tagaytay. It was the first time he and I were getting out of Manila without Miko or David (or both) and I was both excited and worried at the same time.

Some thoughts that went through my head included "What happens if he realizes how annoying I actually am, now that Miko wasn't around to out-annoy me?" and "Who do I talk to if he and I end up bickering about something, now that Dave isn't around?" Lol.


As you can see, I brought my ever-trusty Time-Lined rucksack with me! :)

Since our resident drivers weren't with us, Gerd and I decided to get to Tagaytay our usual way: by commuting. Surprisingly, it was pretty easy. We got on a jeep from ATC to Starmall Alabang and they had shuttles going to Tagaytay in the parking lot! A bit pricey at Php120 if you ask me, but definitely hassle-free.

Once in Tagaytay, we just had to take a trike to Picnic Grove and there, literally right in front of it, was View Park Hotel Tagaytay.


I was instantly at ease when we got there. Everyone around us was friendly, everything around us was beautiful and there were fish in the reception area. Fish are therapeutic! :p

On the way to our rooms, we were able to see a few of the other things that we could enjoy at View Park Hotel Tagaytay:


I instantly fell in love with the garden area because it reminded me of The Shire. #geekalert


They also had this gazebo where we could request for a romantic dinner and which turned out to become my smoking area during our stay. :p


How beautiful is that hallway? Fo'serious.


And the actual room was gorge, as well!
I loved the curtains!


I loved the wall art!


And I loved that I came prepared with DVDs to watch for the night. Ended up going for "Knocked Up" followed by "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace". :) Spot my Freeway bag! (Yes, this post is full of product placements. Haha.)


I think we ate all of this. :p


Didn't touch the mini-bar, though. Say hi to my Crocs! :p


Ample space if you decide to stay in Tagaytay for longer.


Happy "kids"! :)

There seriously wasn't a single thing that I didn't love about the place and I would keep going back if my schedule and budget permitted me.

If you want to see more of the amenities and what View Park Hotel Tagaytay has to offer, then check out my full review on When in Manila here.

Aaaaaand... The winner of this giveaway is Ma. Clarice Lao-Itumay! Congratulations! :)
