Away for a Quiet Weekend
I would recommend Hotel Kimberly if you are looking for a quiet escape in Tagaytay away from the hustle and bustle of the Tagaytay Ridge. This 4 star hotel is located 3 km away from the main Tagaytay ridge road. Once you see the Korean Resto Neul Boom Garden along the main road, turn to Amadeo road and drive for 5 mins to the hotel.
Its location is surrounded by subdivision which gives it a provincial feel. It targets couples who want a secluded escape and families with kids who want a peaceful existence. The place is conducive for relaxing and we slept most of the time with Syoti and Aidan.
Aidan loved the playground and wanted to try the swimming pool but it was too cold. Overall, the food is just OK so you would see people only eating in the restaurant because of the free breakfast included with the stay. I like the zen and modern feel of the rooms and specially the lobby! The best part of your stay in Hotel Kimberly is the super warm service of the 100% Filipino staff!
Thanks to Hotel Kimberly for a relaxing stay!
We got a twin deluxe room that can comfortable accommodate 4 people. The bed, TV, shower are all new. They are still waiting for wifi to be available in the rooms. There is no complimentary water so make sure to bring some.
We love the high celing lobby with the accent lights! It is so cool to hang out in this lobby with Aidan.
The original plan is to go swimming but it was too cold in Tagaytay. I wonder how can other people enjoy this swimming pool ever since they opened.
This is the view of the hotel from the Gazebo area. I can imagine that this would be nice for a wedding reception.
Aidan owned the playground that day. This is a very good idea for kids.
The service size of the breakfast was disappointing and nothing to rave about.
I love going out with Aidan on a road trip like this. How I wish syoti Josh can walk already so that we can play together with Aidan.
Here is a tip when you stay in Hotel Kimberly. Make sure to visit the Peach Sister in the Little Souls Chapel. Read the story of this church from Maan's Pilgrim site below. Always remember to attend the 10am Sunday Mass in this church.
