"Malamig ang simoy ng hangin, kaysaya ng bawat damdamin, ang tibok ng puso sa dibdib, para bang hulog ng langit..."

If you're Pinoy, I bet you've sang along to this classic Christmas song at least once in your life.

Now, imagine humming to this while counting down to Christmas (or New Year!) with your loved one/s in a luxury hotel perched on the highest elevation point of Tagaytay Ridge.

Not bad, right? Not bad at all.

Here are 10 reasons why you should book a room at Summit Ridge Hotel-Tagaytay (SRT), your home away from home this festive season.

1) Get into the Christmas spirit.

Smell the hint of pine in the air. SRT boasts of its unique and relaxing holiday experience that guests return to year after year.

Pops del Rosario, hotel manager, shares, "There are returning guests who come back every Christmas and already know and look for the staff. We've added lovely poinsettias or Christmas flowering plants to our garden for our guests to enjoy!"


2) Go crazy on the sumptuous cakes.

C2 Classic Cuisine, the in-house restaurant of SRT, offers unlimited coffee & cake as part of its Christmas and New Year Package. It's time to satisfy that sweet tooth!

3) Plop down into a bed spacious enough for two.

Stuffed? Take a nap and recharge before the countdown.

4) Unleash your creativity and design your own cupcake.

Access to the cupcake decoration station is part of SRT's offerings for the New Year.


5) Share your blessings.

In partnership with Caritas Cavite, SRT launches the "Wishing Wall," which is in tune with the season of giving during this time of the year. 

Take time to view pictures of some of Caritas Cavite’s kids placed on the Wishing Wall and be inspired to donate and make their wishes come true. Guests may avail of charming trinkets for only P199.00 per piece.

Donors will get to keep their lovely ornament along with an official receipt as proof of purchase. Place the decor around the house or display it somewhere you usually pass by to be reminded of the generosity you’ve extended.

One hundred percent of the proceeds will be donated to Caritas Cavite.

6) Have a romantic Christmas buffet at C2 Classic Cuisine while listening to live music.

7) Wake up to a merry Christmas morning.

Open the glass door to your veranda and enjoy the view of Taal Volcano and its backdrop — the sky's changing hue from black to orange to blue. All this while you're enveloped by the thick Tagaytay fog. (And your partner's warm embrace, of course!)

8) Reminisce your childhood Christmas with these Paskong Pinoy delicacies.
