My Favorite Getaway: Potter's Ridge Tagaytay

Potter’s Ridge has this homey feel where you can relax and rest. You have the view of the Taal Volcano and Lake, and vast green scenery. Not to mention, the beautiful clouds that you can just stare at from sun up to sun down.

If you want to escape from the city and have a serene stay, it's a perfect place for a getaway, and so far it's my personal favorite.

I love the interiors. Every floor is filled with artsy and interesting stuff.

When the three of us stayed there last February, we all agreed that we forgot whatever worries we had and got the rest we needed.

Our intention really for that weekend was to spend some time by the beach at Nasugbu, Batangas, but we were disappointed when we got there and decided to drive back to Tagaytay instead. Good thing we spotted Potter’s Ridge and that’s where we spent the night.

It only cost us Php2,600.00 for the standard room, breakfast included. We got a good discount at that time ‘cause of our late check-in and it’s already an off-peak period for the hotel. Higher rates apply during peak seasons - usually that’s Summer, Christmas, and New Year. Complete rates here

(Note: Went back there last May and got a family room at around Php4,000)

You can find their restaurant upstairs coming from their lobby/main floor.

It’s spacious and is also filled with artsy items and furniture.

We had Filipino breakfast. Daing, Tocino, and Longganisa.

They served Kapeng Barako, the native coffee of Batangas. Kapeng Barako is definitely one of the best-tasting coffees for me!

It also has a lounge area where you can stay and relax after having breakfast.

I opted to read a book that morning, the one I’m holding is Paulo Coelho’s “The Witch of Portobello” - it’s a good one by the way, very inspirational. Free WIFI is also accessible at the restaurant, so in-between reading and chatting with friends I was able to check my emails and update online statuses.

Found peace in this place and whenever I think of having a relaxing and stress-free day, Driving to Tagaytay and Potter’s Ridge are on top of my list.
