WILSON'S Tagaytay: A Secret Dinner, Bed & Breakfast Place in Tagaytay

Wilson's-102.jpg

WILSON'S is the latest Bed & Breakfast from the owners of Balai Indang and Yoki's Farm. It's a 3,000-sqm summer house in Tagaytay converted into a private 13-room B&B with a pool. Featuring some of the collections of Yoki and the home-cooked food of Balai Indang, this B&B with a serene ambiance is a home away from home.

It is the perfect venue for a family gathering, a mini-celebration with your friends and officemates or just going on a writer's retreat. For couples wanting to get married in Tagaytay, you can rent the entire place to be the accommodations for the groom and your friends attending the wedding.

Here's what you can expect if you stay at WILSON'S...

WILSON's is located in the residential community along Maglabe Drive in Tagaytay. It's formerly known as Bakasyunan Grande before it got converted into a private B&B.

The pool centerpiece and modern architecture contribute to the zen-like feel of the place.

Of course, the water is very cold but it's still a treat to swim in the pool, especially on a nice, sunny day or after a good round of drinks. :)

Wilson's-53.jpg
The pool is guarded by bronze sculptures from the collection of Yoki's Farm.

The bronze farm animals are popular with the kids, like the Giraffe,

a life-size Moose,

and the Night Owls...

...with their intricate, scary eyes.

There are also statues of children around that seem to invite you to sit down and read your own book, or...

Wilson's-43.jpg
...have a funny photo-op. :)

At night, the solemn faces of the animals, the reflective surface of the pool, and light of the moon all get you in a sentimental mood.

The restrooms are clean and well-designed.

The rooms on the second floor are not ideal for families with kids since you need to go up and down the grand staircase.

4 Family Rooms. There are four family rooms at P8,500/night, good for four, dinner and breakfast included. Here are the different configurations of the family rooms:

All of the guests share a spacious common family dining area where all the meals are served.

Wilson's-23.jpg
This is the ideal table. It's the one closest to the kitchen doors. :)

There's also a common living room area with a grand piano, where families and friends can gather. (It also has free wi-fi. :) )

 

WILSON'S FOOD:

Wilson's-8.jpg
Wilson's has the same home-cooked goodness of Balai Indang -- no frills, straight-to-the-point cooking, using only rich ingredients, conceptualized by our friend Marge. 

Here's a preview of the meals, with a caveat that the dishes may change based on your preferences and based on what's freshly available in the market:

5-Course Set Dinner Menu

Lunch Options?

Wilson's-79.jpg
They can serve lunch on a pre-booking basis at P700 per head additional.

TIP: For kids, you can request these Cereal Prawn Balls, a regular Balai Indang favorite. :)

Wilson's-94.jpg
We enjoyed the home-cooked, no-worries comfort food throughout our stay at Wilson's.

Best of all, they allow you to bring your own wine and booze with no corkage fee. :)

Wilson's-45.jpg
Overall, I love the tranquility of the place, the delicious dinner, and the bed and breakfast package. Budget P2,750 per person for overnight stay.

Some of the rooms have quirky designs, so make sure to reserve your preferred color scheme/ design in advance. The restrooms are nice but the quality of the bed and beddings can be improved.

Food is simple home-cooked comfort food, Balai Indang-style. Bring your own booze. :) I would suggest that you have your lunch outside at Tootsie's or Breakfast at Antonio's. If you are staying for a couple of days, make sure to request your preferences.
