This Boutique Hotel in Tagaytay Is Straight Out of a Daydream
The drive south is worth it!
Tagaytay is known as an easy weekend getaway because of its proximity to Metro Manila. If you leave early enough and know the shortcuts when driving south, you'll get there in no time and start your much-needed respite from your day-to-day job. And what better spot to recharge your tired souls than in a lifestyle compound with a quaint boutique hotel, a health and wellness center, and an Instagram-worthy library and café? La Bella Boutique Hotel and Residences, which opened in April, prides itself on being this dreamlike destination in Tagaytay, Cavite.

Its façade with whitewashed walls has a striking resemblance to the Cycladic architecture you'd see in Santorini, Greece. Inside, the 90-room condotel has three types of accommodations: the Studio Suite, which has a double bed and balcony; the Executive Suite, which is a one- or two-bedroom unit; and the Family Suite, which has a double bed and two single beds in its three-bedroom space plus kitchen and dining areas. Rooms have whimsical murals that look like they're straight out of a fairytale book, and the rest of the décor complements the bright color palette.

The rest of the estate has a variety of restaurants and shops to go with La Bella Tagaytay's promise of holistic relaxation, like Organico Gourmet. The hotel is also home to the Cavite branch of Shanti Ayurveda, a wellness center specializing in traditional methods from India. There's also the Bodhi Mind and Body Shop, which is a library, café, and shop for organic goods all rolled in one.
