Enjoy a Piece of Santorini at This Greek-Inspired Tagaytay Resort Overlooking Taal Lake
You don't have to go as far as Greece to have this peace

When someone says Greece, perhaps one of the destinations that would easily pop on top of your mind is Santorini. There’s just something about its simplicity that makes any of its sights a picture-perfect postcard. The white-painted pavements, walls, and deep-blue colored domes of houses dotting the Cyclades Islands in the Aegean Sea all create a unique sight. Because of this iconic architecture of its buildings, Santorini’s signature vibe has been replicated in multiple places across the world. One of those is right in the highlands of Tagaytay — the Estancia Resort Hotel.
How to get there?
This Santorini-inspired haven sits on the top of Tagaytay’s high-altitude vantage point overlooking the Taal Volcano and its lake. For those who want a quick getaway from the city, the Estancia Resort Hotel offers its guests a 360-degree view of Cavite’s most well-known tourist attraction.
Just an hour and a half away from the metro, you could reach Estancia Resort Hotel by traversing through the Tagaytay-Calamba Road and Aguinaldo Highway. If you’re craving a Santorini getaway but still stuck in the Philippines because of travel restrictions, this Tagaytay resort is perfectly tailored for you.
You could choose rooms from a wide array of options that all cater to that full Greek experience. The Deluxe room offers either one queen-size bed or two single-sized beds depending on your preference. Guests have access to this 21 square-meter room with a full view of the garden and an overlooking panorama of the Tall Volcano from your balcony.
If you want a slightly bigger room, you can go for the Santorini Suite which is a 36 square-meter room that has a minibar for your late-night cravings. Just make sure you’re not drinking past the curfew hours — we’re still following the pandemic guidelines.
If you want to host bigger events like weddings, baptismal, and debuts, this white mansion house-like resort also has spacious function rooms perfect for both social and corporate events.
The rooms here are all equipped with fast Internet connectivity and an air-conditioner. If you’re trying to do a work-from-home setup, you won’t have problems focusing on your tasks.
There are also plenty of recreational activities you could do here. If you’re a gamer, you’d certainly enjoy playing your favorite video games in the gaming room. For those who are stressed in the city, calm your weary mind in their inviting sauna spa. You could also bond with your friends and relatives while playing billiards.
And if you want to both have fun while getting a tan from the Sun, you could try their pools. Play table tennis for that morning exercise. Marvel at the garden that looks like the ancient Hanging Gardens of Babylon.
