After the feast we had at Robinsons Galleria Veranda, I and some fellow bloggers were shuttled to Summit Ridge Tagaytay. I’ve never been to the hotel but I went to the Promenade when it was new. There was only Starbucks and the grocery back then. When we arrived, I was amazed at how much the place has changed. The Promenade is full of restaurants now. The hotel is enormous and looked utilitarian from the outside. I was mistaken though.

Summit Ridge Tagaytay Hotel and Convention Center is far from utilitarian. Owned and operated by Robinsons Land Corporation, it is tastefully decorated. Minimalist yet functional decor and furniture lined the huge lobby. Summit Ridge is located at the highest point of Tagaytay and the tall structure offers an unparalleled view of Tagaytay’s famous volcano. The hotel has 108 rooms and has numerous function rooms which makes it an ideal location for work and play.

It was very cold, overcast and windy that day so we were promptly given the keys to our rooms so we can rest for a bit and freshen up. The room assigned to me was on the 7th floor, room 701. It was the furthest from the elevators but the walk to the room gave me a view of the other side of Tagaytay.

When I got to my room, I was in awe of it. It is huge for a standard hotel room. It has a queen size bed, flat screen television, a couch, a personal refrigerator, and a desk. I also love the bath which was big, linear and modern. There was no bath tub but has a rainforest shower head. The verbena-scented toiletries also suited the hotel’s theme. The showcase of Summit Ridge rooms, I believe, are the balconies. Each room has one and it looks out to scenic Taal Volcano and Taal Lake. One can take the couch to the balcony and just enjoy the view all day. BTW, each room is equipped with a Wi-Fi router!

After the tour, we had a sumptuous buffet dinner which I will write about soon in my food blog. Then we were treated to a very relaxing massage care of SeriAsia Spa. I had the massage in my room because the spa was still being built but now it is open and fully functional (SeriAsia Spa is located at the 2nd level of Summit Ridge Hotel). I think you can guess how well I slept that night.

Overall, my stay at Summit Ridge Hotel Tagaytay was truly pleasurable. The food was great, the amenities I saw were modern and have more than adequate equipment, the hotel room was relaxing and first class, and most of all the hotel’s location is top-notch.

    I can’t exactly remember how many times I’ve stayed here just for the weekend’s trip to the highlands. Although I can clearly remember spending one holy week and Christmas here with the family, just watching over the busy parking area of the supermarket and traffic-heavy street right in front of the hotel. Great place, nice rooms, although some facilities especially in the bathrooms are slightly mishandled. A few drips, clogged sinks – but nothing they can’t fix on the spot. I hope the management are able to maintain this nice hotel. SMDC is rising fast as I write this post so, 🙂 anyway, nice feature.
