Tagaytay City has experienced a real estate boom, as investors looking for vacation homes are attracted by the upland city’s breezy climate and proximity to Metro Manila.
The largest property developer in the area—Tagaytay Highlands—has transformed Tagaytay’s best mountain ridges into a world-class residential mountain resort community.
Tagaytay Highlands, a leisure development of the SM Group, says it now has 2,980 homeowners and 6,118 active members who relish a good and relaxing weekend.
Just outside Metro Manila, Tagaytay Highlands sprawls across Tagaytay’s scenic mountain ridges, offering upscale amenities considered at par with vacation homes abroad.
Tagaytay Highlands says while the properties are offered at a premium price, the superb facilities make these worthwhile investments.
It lists five reasons why investing in a property at the resort is a smart move.
First is the name. Tagaytay Highlands says that as a brand, it is considered the country’s most exclusive leisure-residential mountain resort with an upscale membership base. Tagaytay Highlands is backed by the financial strength and solid business reputation of the SM Group, one of Asia’s largest corporations. It has been in operation for 20 years now.
Second is the location and weather. Located in the heart of Tagaytay City, the property is the only one of its kind and scale, occupying a land area of 1,290 hectares and straddling three provinces—Cavite, Laguna and Batangas. At 2,000 feet above sea level, it offers the striking views of Taal Lake and Volcano, Mt. Makiling, the Canlubang Valley and Laguna de Bay.
Tagaytay Highlands is a quick 50-kilometer drive from the Makati central business district, making it a favored weekend destination for Metro Manila’s elite.
One of Tagaytay Highlands’ best come-ons is the cool, misty weather all-year round, with an average daily temperature of 22 degrees Celsius—a great relief for those who want to escape the heat and humidity in Metro Manila.
Third is amenities. Tagaytay Highlands boasts of a legion of “firsts” in the country such as the first cable cars, the first 48-seater Swiss funicular train, the first 45-hole golfing resort in the whole of Tagaytay City, and the first to have The Peak Bar with a 360-degree view of two lakes, Taal volcano, five mountains, and four cities.
It is a self-contained leisure community that offers tight 24-hour security and exclusive membership to four Clubs—complete with basic utilities, world-class amenities, 16 F&B outlets, a variety of sports and recreational facilities, 24/7 medical and emergency support services, and uninterrupted water and power supply.
Fourth is the environs. Tagaytay Highlands is ideal for second home. Located in one of the top tourist destinations in the country, it is situated near hospitals, academic centers, shopping establishments, industrial and technological parks, churches, banks, and gasoline stations.
Fifth is the premier homes. Tagaytay Highlands has exclusive themed residential communities—the Highlands, Midlands and Greenlands—that were master planned by reputable design teams and maintained through excellent after-sales and property management.
Residents can choose from different types of developments such as condo units, log cabins, themed houses and lot that have varying sizes depending on each owner’s preference. All communities are gated with 24/7 security service, with homes that enjoy a view of surrounding landscapes.
Tagaytay Highlands says owning a property in the mountain resort is deemed a smart investment as Tagaytay City is now a top weekend destination for people seeking a home away from home.
