Midweek Stress Buster
When the work-from-home chaos gets too much, and I’m drowning in stress, there’s this magical place I escape to – Anya Resort in Tagaytay. It’s just an hour’s drive from Makati, a breeze compared to the traffic madness heading north to Ortigas.
Warm Welcome Home by Anya Resort Tagaytay
As soon as I roll through the gates and hit the reception, it’s like entering a haven. The folks at Anya Tagaytay greet me with the warmest smiles, saying, “Welcome home.” And you know what? It truly feels like home.
Reasons to Love Anya Resort Tagaytay
Let me spill the beans on why I’m head over heels for Anya in Tagaytay, a proud member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
1. The People
Meet Mikel Arriet Aruiz, the cool cat in charge. The guy exudes warmth that spreads like sunshine throughout the resort. Mikel and his crew are all about generosity and making every visit a standout experience.
2. The Beds
Okay, don’t judge, but my work desk at Anya is their plush bed. Surrounded by pillows of all shapes and hardness levels from their fancy pillow menu, I’m in my element. And did I mention the pillow scent choice? Lavender for chill vibes or citrus for an energy boost – you decide. Pro tip: Request a room with a high ceiling for a creativity boost.
3. The Tubs
Guess what? They have a bath menu! I ring up my personal Anya experience assistant, and voila, a hot bath is drawn, scented with whatever fragrance I fancy. Rose petals, anyone?
4. The Library
When Zoom meetings demand a professional backdrop, I snag a slot in Anya’s heavenly sun-filled library. Floor-to-ceiling bookcases filled with hardbound books – it’s like my personal paradise. Somehow, I always find a book that speaks to my soul.
5. The Pool
Who swims in chilly Tagaytay? Me, at Anya’s heated pool! It’s my sanctuary, especially when the weather’s playing hard to get. Best spot for donning my thinking cap, I swear.
6. The Gardens
Sure, there are golf carts to chauffeur me around, but I prefer strolling through the lush greenery. Fresh air, vibrant trees – it’s a mini nature retreat.
7. The Peace and Quiet
Even when they say every room’s booked, it never feels crowded. I rarely bump into other guests wandering the grounds. Maybe they’re in the same “working from home” mode as me?
8. Fine Dining Delight
Samira Restaurant by Chele Gonzalez is a culinary gem. Whether it’s the tasting menu or a la carte, each dish is a work of art and tastes as good as it looks. Beef tartare on buttery toast, oysters with pears, black squid arancini – it’s a flavor explosion.
Anya Resort Tagaytay is my go-to for a luxurious me-time fix. From the fantastic staff to the cozy beds, fragrant baths, and gourmet delights, it’s a retreat like no other. If you’re yearning for a slice of paradise to unwind and indulge, Anya Resort is where the magic happens.
