A staycation is a short break spent at a place found in or around the city. A weekend stay at a hotel close to your own home can be the best thing to look forward to at the end of a long, tiring, and stressful time.

If you feel like escaping from the metro, drive to Tagaytay and check out Domicillo Design Hotel. While there are already a good number of boutique hotels in the area, Domicillo stands out as the first design hotel in the cool city.

Owner Rene Alcala sought the help of his friend, renowned interior designer Budji Layug, to come up with a place that’s both impressive and relaxing. “This is what Budji calls organic architecture, because it’s not very [intrusive] to the environment. The only colors that you see are the paintings, all the rest are either grey, black, cement, wood, that’s it. And the greens. It’s very organic, and a lot of people like it,” Rene describes.
