Nuvali
About
An ecologically-sound community development in Sta. Rosa, Laguna, Nuvali is more than just a stopover station. Although many of those traveling further south would often pass by and enjoy the area, many travelers have likewise made this their sole destination. For those just stopping over for a quick meal, Nuvali’s Solenad which is home to numerous dining options and retail shops is the ultimate stopover area. For those planning to enjoy more of what Nuvali has to offer can have their fill of the tree-lined streets, bike trails, the 4-hectare multifunctional lake, the Wildlife and Bird Sanctuary, tree nursery and demo farm, The Fields at Nuvali, and the Repulic Wakepark. Nuvali also offers refuge for tired and weary travelers with the opening of the new Seda Hotel which can be the perfect base for exploring the surrounding areas of Nuvali.

Visited January 2021, felt safe around. Security patrols were present to maintain social distancing especially around the lake where the Koi Fish are. Used to be
too crowded in that area. Restaurants around were all following safety protocols. The park was well maintained.

This is a very nice place to stroll around and have some picnic. There is something for everybody. Those fitness buffs can jog around or go cycling on rented bicycles. Adventurers can go on a boat ride, you can also up the level and go wakeboarding. The young ones who loves pets specially fishes can go and feed the fishes (there's a lot of colorful fishes on the pond). For the food fanatics, there's a lot of restaurants to choose from. Don't miss to drop by when you are nearby. This is along the way if you are going to Tagaytay.

We went to Nuvali as part of an educational tour. The view is amazing, we love to move here one day. The fishes are such eye candy. Koi's are big and beautiful. We went there again just to drive around. The place is wonderful.

Please stop your feeding program for the Koi fish. The fish swim on top of each other and a lot of them have damaged scales and skin. It would have been better if the feeding area is well situated where the people can go around the pond so that the fish can be better distributed.

Nuvali is close to Metro Manila that staying there for the week-end or just overnight is very convenient. There are many places to go to, many things to do and many eating options. The kids really enjoyed the Koi pond as well as the boat ride. With expansive green spaces, there is a lot of areas to play.

Wish there were more hotels though.

Nuvali is synonymous to good place, good time, good life. Envisioned for high-end living south of Manila, this community was developed complete with shopping and recreation center that matches the lifestyle of the rich and famous. Chilling out has never been this good.
Go to Nuvali in the afternoon, feel the fresh air sitting in an open-air shade or simply walk around the shops and stores. Kids will enjoy feeding Koi fish or ride a speed boat plying the man-made lake. Sports-minded can bike around or simply jog over concrete trails amidst sculptured greens and trees in complete peace of mind and security. Restaurants, coffee shops, and the likes are plentiful whenever you prefer to dine out. The place exudes romantic ambiance when lights went up starting early evening to evenly match the darkness of the night. Enjoy your favorite drinks and cocktails with someone special in high-class cafes and bar. The rest is all yours to make the best of your stay.

At Sta. Rosa exit, proceed west-ward towards Tagaytay until you reach Nuvali. Left turn when you see the marked entrance then look for the most convenient parking.

Last weekend was already the 3rd time that I visited Nuvali with my husband. Since the last visit was about 3 years ago and we went there via service car, I checked on Nuvali's website to get the contact details on how to commute to the place. I sent a text message to one of the mobile numbers stated in the site, I was asking for direction how to commute to Nuvali from Cubao. The receiving party politely replied that he had no idea. It was good he replied out of courtesy but too bad for Nuvali because the company should have not stated contact number in the site if the receiving end cannot provide information to visitors' inquiries. Found Nobody in Nuvali!

But the adventure seekers in us prevailed. After a series of net surfing among travel blogs, we finally found the easiest way to commute to Nuvali. For first timers, you may take JAC Liner bus stationed in Kamias, Quezon City, you will never get lost as this is the terminal right beside the DILG building. Take the one going to Balibago at P 70.00 (one-way), that will take you to the terminal in less than 2 hours. Do not mistaken Jac for Jam as Jac is consistently customer service oriented and accommodating from the phone numbers indicated in its website up to the receptionist over the phone, to the guards, conductor and driver, they all welcomed us passengers with a good morning and thank you greetings. While Jam's phone numbers are all defective!

Upon reaching the Jac Liner terminal in Balibago, go further to the Mini Stop where two kinds of tricycles will take you to Nuvali. For your information, tricycles in Nuvali can hold up to 6 passengers (excluding the driver) in one ride where 2 are inside the other 2 at the back (of the first 2) and the remaining 2 at the back of the driver. Anyway, one ride costs P 120.00 or the special one where you do not have to wait for other passengers to fill in the tricycle. and the second kind of ride is per passenger at P 20.00 each, the downside is you have to wait for a little time before all the passengers fill in the tricycle. And voila, you will be transported right in front of Nuvali.

Well nothing has changed much except for more buildings and food and various stores opening within Nuvali. It would have been better though if Nuvali places a centralized concierge station where people can locate stores especially food stores or in its absence, more directional signs or logos to inform new visitors.

Nevertheless, the boat ride is still a fun activity at P 30.00 per head though you have to wait for at least 5 other passengers to complete the required 6 people for every boat ride. The boat's plastic roof/cover however is already worn out and needs to be replaced already. The kois are still delights to see!

We just hope that next time, Nuvali does its visitors a favor, place one customer service person who can answer as simple query as how to go to Nuvali or it'll be Nobody!
