Twin Lakes Hotel Tagaytay Review

As a resident of the south, I am always on the lookout for family-friendly retreats within the region that are perfect for weekend getaways or staycations. My recent discovery is Twin Lakes Hotel Tagaytay.

From the same developers that brought ‘Venice’ closer to Filipinos, Megaworld offers another European-inspired township, this time, in Laurel, Batangas.

Tagaytay can be quite packed and traffic is a bummer during weekends and holidays. But if you venture further the Tagaytay-Nasugbu Highway, I promise you, the trip will be worth it when you reach Twin Lakes Hotel.

The drive down to the hotel already feels like a world away. Seeing the hotel’s facade and the green surroundings felt like driving through a European countryside.

Upon arrival, a staff immediately offered to take our bags. We noticed they are young, but well-trained; always courteous and ready to assist with anything we needed.

Lobby and Common Areas

We were very impressed with the lobby’s design.

Floor to ceiling windows allow plenty of natural light making the hall look even more spacious and airy. 

Who knew mismatched furniture could look chic?
Hallway of the grand ballroom which can accommodate up to 500 people.

Superior Room

Check-in was swift, and we settled into our room in no time.

Our queen bed can actually fit 3* adults or 2 adults and 2 kids.

Our Superior Room was divine.

There’s plenty of space to move around. We had a big comfortable bed, flat screen TV, work desk/vanity area with plenty of power outlets, fast and stable WiFi connection, ample closet and luggage space, mini bar, and luxurious bathroom.

The hotel is fairly new having opened just last December 2018, so there’s still a few construction work going on here and there. It didn’t bother us though because soundproofing of the room was superb.

I slept earlier than my usual bed time. 😉

The bathroom is spotless and fitted with Kohler fixtures.

There’s a glass-enclosed shower with rain shower head, complete toiletries, fragrant bath towels, and of course, the bathtub. You can pull up the blinds to watch TV while having a bubble bath, if that’s your thing.

Should you need more pampering, you can also book their spa services.

Just sitting in the balcony enjoying the fresh air was so calming.

All rooms at Twin Lakes Hotel have a balcony. We had views of Taal Volcano and the lake as well as the community’s vineyard. 

Hotel Grounds

You can opt to leave the balcony door open to let natural light and the cool breeze in. The AC even automatically turns off when it detects that the balcony door is open. What a nice way to conserve electricity. 🙂

Twin Lakes community’s vineyard and The Vineyard Residences

The terrace-like structure is Twin Lakes community’s vineyard where guests can eventually enjoy grape-picking activities. Speaking of grapes, the low-rise residential buildings of The Vineyard Residences are aptly named as Shiraz, Merlot, and Chardonnay.

For a few minutes, I had the heated infinity pool to myself. 😀

For me, the main draw of this hotel is the heated infinity pool! We were blessed with sunny but cool weather, so it was really nice to take a dip. And even if it was foggy, I imagine it would be as if soaking in one of the thermal baths of Switzerland. 😀


Breakfast is served at Twin Lakes Cafe, their in-house all-day dining restaurant.

For lunch or dinner, you can also take the complimentary shuttle service to the Twin Lakes commercial strip for more dining options. Some of the restaurants/cafe are Bag of Beans, Silver Bucket, Hap Chan, Bagoong Club, Starbucks etc. There’s also a 7-11 and Robinsons Supermarket. But take note that bringing food and beverage in the hotel is prohibited.

We stayed on a weekday and there weren’t a lot of guests, so the breakfast buffet had a modest selection of Filipino, Western, and Asian food, but there is something for everyone to enjoy.

We had a short but sweet stay at Twin Lakes Hotel. I would definitely bring my relatives here. I’m sure they will enjoy it as much as we did!
