Discovery Country Suites

For our second anniversary, we decided to try something fancy so we booked an overnight stay at this boutique hotel in Tagaytay called Discovery Country Suites. 

It has 7 well-appointed themed rooms namely Andalucia (Moorish Spanish countryside; 33sqm.), Ceylon (Old world Sri Lanka; 33sqm), Saint-Tropez (Mediterranean coastline; 37sqm), Siam (Thai; 55sqm), Nara (Japanese; 57sqm), Nantucket (American Cape Cod; 61sqm), and Oxford (England; 72sqm).

It is also home to Restaurant Verbena which serves creations of Chef David Pardo de Ayala - Corporate Chef of the Discovery Leisure Company.

We booked the Nara room - because we are suckers for almost anything Japanese - for the promo rate of Php8,000nett (it is normally Php11,000 + 10% service charge, 12% VAT, and .75% local tax). The package includes:

  • Complimentary country breakfast daily
  • Complimentary wine tasting with cheese and hors d’oeuvres
  • Welcome amenity
  • All rooms include color television with cable programming, telephone and air conditioning, en suite bathroom and safe deposit boxes
  • Make-up and turn down service daily
  • Access to the mini library and movie library, recreation and entertainment
  • Use of the whirlpool
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi access
  • Complimentary newspaper daily
  • Complimentary parking
