Being a very busy man with a lot on my mind, planning a romantic weekend getaway for my girlfriend's birthday was even more stressful than anything I encounter with my work. So I gave my friend RA, from Travelbook, a call and just lay down my cards. Immediately she gave me Tagaytay's Top 5 Romantic Hotels. On top of that list was a boutique hotel I have never heard of, 8 Suites. Although a tad bit hesitant, I trusted Travelbook's opinion and without checking online, I just gave RA and her associate, Jessica, the go signal to book it. Within a few minutes, they booked the Sweetest Suite and sent me a confirmation.
Being a romantic getaway, I gave 8 Suites a call and asked them to help me make it special for my girl. Edna. Guys, ask for Edna. She just pulled through.
We "Wazed" 8 Suites and Waze led us to a side street at the top of a hill. Awaiting us was a huge house. We parked our car and walked in. The inside was very cozy. It's like your romantic love shack/cabin that sits on top of a small hill in the middle of no where over looking the lake. It is beautiful. Breathtakingly, heartwarmingly, beautiful.
We entered our room.. And petals were scattered all over the floor, a bouquet of flowers on the bed, and spelled out with petals, on the bed, "Happy Birthday" and "I love you." Even the bathtub had petals in it with a bubble bath waiting for us.
My girlfriend's eyes sparkled and gave me those cute hugs you see in the movies with her two legs kicking back and clinging on to my neck with her arms. We were both were very happy.
I highly recommend booking the Sweetest Suite. The view is majestic because the wrap around windows flanked by a wrap around balcony gives you a private view of the lake. The room has everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Service the staff gave was friendly, sincere and heartfelt.
I'm currently sitting down on the bed with my back to this amazing headboard while I'm writing this review. I'll continue this review when we check out and try to upload pictures. Right now, I need to sign off, my girlfriend's taking a shower and we will be having our in house massage in a few...
Now back in Manila, I realized that the food needs to be improved although breakfast was good, dinner menu was mediocre.
Looking back at our stay, I'm still glad that I chose 8 Suites. For those who haven't found a secret hideaway in Tagaytay that guarantees privacy, 8 Suites is recommendable. Happy travels to all! :)
