Suddenly, the long hot summer is here and soon, the kids will be out of school — and raring to go out. Meanwhile, you’ll be out of your wits trying to rein in your kids’ overactive adrenaline. Where to go to beat the heat and spend precious family bonding time this summer? Now, that’s the nagging question parents ask themselves summer after summer after summer. Here’s a hot tip: Why not come home — that is, come home to Tagaytay Highlands, where the air is refreshingly cool and tons of fun summer activities for the whole family await.
Your home-sweet-home at Tagaytay Highlands, perched 2,500 feet above sea level, is only 60 kms. away from Metro Manila — that’s just an easy hour’s drive from Makati. You know you’re at the Highlands when the cool breeze suddenly embraces you to warm your heart and soothe your weary spirit. You know you’re at the Highlands when you see the hazy fringes of the amazing, mesmerizing Taal Volcano sitting on a lake, a scenery that could have leaped out of a postcard or a canvas.
Surely, for Mom and Dad, there’s nothing like coming home to a quiet place after a long hard week at work. Finally, Mom and Dad can enjoy some well-deserved downtime. Mom can have a most relaxing massage at the Spa & Lodge or pamper herself with a facial or some other beauty and medical treatments. Or she can go for some me time, meditate, do yoga or simply commune with nature. On the other hand, Dad can play golf at the Highlands’ 18-hole championship golf courses. Or simply curl up with a book and catch up on his reading.
What about the kids? Well, at the Highlands, there’s never a dull moment for the kids. They can go hiking, trekking, biking, etc.

As for the whole family, the Highlands offers a whole lot of fun. They can go swimming (there’s an outdoor pool and there’s a indoor heated pool), fishing, jogging, bowling or vegetable picking. They can play basketball or tennis. They can try the mini golf. They can ride the funicular tram or the cable car. They can watch a show or a concert (occasionally held here). They can check out the karaoke and outsing each other. They can even do a dance fitness class together. Or they can simply catch up with each other.
For the Holy Week, Highlands has activities designed for the whole family — summer bazaar, Holloween trick or treat, Easter egg hunt. For the long Holy Week weekend, Highlands has lined up a lot of native games homeowners and members can enjoy as much as our great Filipino ancestors did — think piko, tsato, luksong sako, palo sebo, tyakad, pukpok palayok, and hulihang baboy.
