Summit Ridge Hotel Tagaytay Reviews
You gotta submit to Summit ;) Nov 07, 2010
The 2009 holidays were eventful and more special than ever for our families. We spent Christmas outside Manila, a welcome change that we all admitted, and needed. But more importantly, that decision came because my best cuz (best friend and cousin), Christine was getting married to Nin, and yes it was a beautiful destination wedding which took place at Calaruega, and reception followed at Villa Sommet. Having these facts handy, the family had to choose a very good hotel, both location wise and quality wise. It appears that a few months prior, Summit Ridge Hotel, just recently opened. It was brand new, it was beside a Robinson's Department store, it was a few minutes drive from the reception venue, and it was surrounded by Starbucks, bars, the works, if one wanted to go get something.
We all booked a total of four 2 bedroom suites, and we were delighted to see that the unit was spacious, came with good dining facilities, kitchen ware, fridge, centralized AC and also within the bedrooms, 2 LCD screens, huge sofa beds, and the 2 other things which were both huge for us: the huge sprawling balcony, providing us the best possible view of the renowned Taal Volcano (even more beautiful at Sunrise we found out!) and the superb rain shower! While the T & B and shower area was in one room, it was separated inside. It had excellent lighting and the girls and I practically lingered the entire time, taking our time showering, doing body scrubs, slathering body lotions, drying out hair, primping up, we could have gone on. I think that already says a lot.
We didn't necessarily take advantage of the kitchen ware, since breakfast was also provided. I remembered though that early morning of the wedding, Dec. 26, we had some eggs, ham and bacon prepared for us, with freshly brewed coffee waiting for us who had to prepare the earliest together with the bride and as part of the wedding entourage. Being able to cook a bit and share a simple home cooked breakfast was cozy and really homey. It was a prelude to how wonderful the day was going to turn out.
Most of these photos were really taken the eve prior to the wedding. The rest of the other photos were taken the day after the wedding. Funny enough, my most favorite photo was actually when we all crammed into one room, the boys (my guy cousins who are husbands to the girls next to them) invaded our room and for some reasons, after a huge wedding, regardless if we were too tired, we still wanted to stay up, talk, laugh, and keep telling each other stories of how the day went. Its my favorite shot especially that the boys looked funny, a welcome revenge shot for years of endlessly capturing us girls in our funniest looks ever!
Its too bad that I didn't focus on the interiors of the suites during that time, but if satisfaction is the basis, I think that these pictures can very well speak for itself.
As for the price, I think it was 17-18 thousand pesos per suite per day during the time, but I guess that's because it was a super peak season. On a normal rate, I have looked it up to be around 12-14 thousand. It has an excellent location, best view of Taal volcano and relatively new, I say take advantage now and experience what its all about. You can thank me later :)
