Currently in Korea surprisingly enjoying the negative degree weather! While I was running around like a headless chicken, not having time to blog the past few
days I finally had time to sit down and write.
Crosswinds Resort Suites is located inside the leisure community of Crosswinds Tagaytay, nestled on the hillside of this 100-hectare development. The crisp scent of 20,000 pine trees perfuming the air and the view of rolling hills with sweeping vistas offer a welcome repose for nerves frayed and tattered by the stress of work and urban life.
We stayed in a studio suite that has two twin sized bed, a kitchenette, a desk and reading nook.
Sadly as much as we wanted to tour the proper, we arrived around five in the afternoon due to terrible traffic. We were there just in time to witness the sunset. The sky turned pink so we took advantage of the view and took photos on our room’s balcony!
I, on the other hand busied myself reading a book and catching up with work.
We were tired from the extra long trip (almost three hours on the road) we had going to Tagaytay that day that we slept in early and woke up just in time to catch breakfast.
The breakfast buffet was right across our hotel’s building. Crosswinds breakfast buffet offers the basic Pinoy dishes: champorado, sausage, ham, salted egg, scrambled egg, adobo, danggit, ham, buttered veggies, cereals and an assortment of bread and jams.
Wanted to go to the gym before having breakfast buffet but I was informed there was a charge for that facility. Tried checking what the gym looks like on the website but there was no indication there was a gym. So I ended up skipping my usual routine of fasted workout before breakfast to just enjoy our first meal that day with my family.
My kids appreciated being outdoors. It’s not often they get to walk around outside back in the metro. They were able to spot makahiya plant, a snail and a few other things they don’t normally see everyday at home.
We weren’t able to checkout the outdoor playground & pool because it was a bit far from the hotel (you need to ride a car going there) and we were pressed for time too as we had to be somewhere else that day.
Nonetheless, my family enjoyed our short & simple stay. It was literally & figuratively a breath of fresh air for us. We haven’t stayed in Tagaytay for years na!
