Bed & Breakfast
“Restaurant, Bed & Breakfast, Spa, Wedding venue…. Sonya’s Secret Garden does it all and does it well. The setting is magical. Tucked in a tropical garden with flowers all around and teak wood furniture that seamlessly ties it all together, this is the best place in Tagaytay City to come for lunch. You’ve got to try the ‘Bread & Dips’, which features homemade sesame seed bread from Sonya’s oven with a collection of tapenades such as bruschetta, basil pesto, and fresh green peppercorn in olive oil. In addition, there are fresh pastas, salads, and tenderly cooked proteins. With your meal, you can order bottomless freshly squeezed Dalandan juice and tarragon tea. It’s heaven.”

Church
“Caleruega’s Transfiguration Chapel, the property’s main draw, embraced me with that warm welcoming feeling, an ideal feature for a retreat destination. But other than being a place for reflection and prayer, the chapel bears witness to many unions of people vowing everlasting love for each other.”

“One of the best zoos, a visit to Paradizoo in Tagaytay is a must for those who wish to explore this place. Visitors can interact with the farm animals up close and personal and also feed them. There’s a tour guide in every farm cluster at Paradizoo, who know everything about the animal and also they teach parents and kids how to co-exist with these animals. There is also a butterfly sanctuary within the zoo where you can find rare and exotic species of butterflies. You can even enjoy activities like horseback riding and camel feeding. Paradizoo also has a Vegetable Farm filled with organically grown vegetables which guests and visitors can buy and bring home. ”
