Home, they say, is where the heart is. And for avid golfers, home perhaps is where they can spend quality time in the company of family and friends and play a round, or two, of golf.
There are several golf and residential estates in the Philippines, but only a few exudes the luxury and elegance of a premier mountain resort community while providing access to a championship golf course set amidst breathtaking views.
Tagaytay Highlands has become the favorite weekend destination of golfers and their families. The premier mountain resort community is home to Asia’s most exciting golf course, the Tagaytay Highlands Golf Club, and the equally challenging 18-hole Tagaytay Midlands Golf Club.
The championship golf course offers a perfect view of the Taal Lake and Volcano, which can be enjoyed while starting their first tee or having lunch with family at the Midlands Golfers Lounge.
After a day of golf, residents can recharge in the comforts of their home at Horizon Terraces or Vireya, two of Tagaytay Highlands’ most favored residential developments that are in close proximity to the Tagaytay Midlands Golf Club.
An urban escape amidst nature
Horizon Terraces is ideal for residents who long for a weekend retreat closer to nature.
This 3.2-hectare community boasts a contemporary Asian design aesthetic in its Garden Villas and Garden Suites, which are laid out, terrace-style, to afford postcard-pretty views of the Taal Lake and Volcano, the distant Mt. Makiling, the Midlands Golf Course, and its own lush central park.
The Garden Villas are three-bedroom townhouses of 136 to 154 square meters masterfully designed for large, close-knit families who long for a quick disconnect from the urban frenzy.
Each living space is complemented by large glass windows and sliding doors to maximize natural light, cool breeze, and refreshing views. The ground floor in each unit features a multi-functional den that may be converted into an entertainment area or a guest room.
The Garden Suites, on the other hand, are perfect for growing families. These well-planned one- and two-bedroom units range from 43 to 68 square meters in size, highlighted by large panel sliding windows that maximize natural lighting and ventilation and an expansive balcony where residents can enjoy views.
Inspired by the radiance of nature that surrounds it, Horizon Terraces promises holistic indulgence through the community’s very own central park, where laidback moments or active adventures can be found within a hectare of lush, verdant setting.
Over 70 percent of the development is dedicated to open spaces and lush gardens while therapeutic walkways, private nooks, and a jogging path weave through the entire area serving as spaces to converge and commune. Two swimming pools and a playground call for invigorating activities.
A mountainside paradise
Families who prefer to dwell in a tropical haven would do well living in Vireya, the first and only tropical resort community in Tagaytay Highlands where the cool mist of the mountains complements the vibrant warmth of the tropics.
Located at the highest point of the Midlands, future residents can build tropical-inspired homes on 250- to 562-square-meter lots wherein elements of wood and wide glass windows, and high-pitched roofs and entryways allow the verdant outdoors in.
Vireya’s exclusive amenities include Pavana, the community’s central amenity with a pavilion and swimming pool, and Ammanya Massage Point.
Vireya’s pocket parks or gardens such as the Cala Mira, Leafwing, Herb Garden, and Garden Patio offer a conducive space where families can spend serene afternoons with nature. There’s also a new hangout spot, Treehouse in Tagaytay Highlands as well as jogging paths where residents can maintain a fit and active lifestyle.
