Anya Resort Tagaytay: Luxurious Boutique Hotel
Tagaytay is a popular destination for quick weekend trips and staycations. We recently drove down south to Tagaytay and spent a weekend in Anya Resort and Residences. It is one of the 3 hotels in the Philippines which is included in the Small Luxury Hotels site.
Anya Resort is a vision of how I wanted my living room to be – spacious, with high-ceiling, glass panels and greens everywhere.
The Lifestyle Assistant ensured that we got the bubble bath set for us during the turn down service at night.
Each of the restaurant has an impressive menu as headed by Executive Chef Frenchman Jonathan Bauthiaux. We were served with the most intricately prepared dishes – from the selection of ingredients (only the freshest and organic), to preparation and down to the plating. Each of the meal that was taken out from the kitchen is a masterpiece.

When we arrived, we had quick a brunch at Anila and ordered coffee and banana cake (the best one!) I got to take home a loaf and stored in a fridge, and surprisingly, it still tasted good and fluffy on a bite.
White pizza with mozarella cheese, topped with eggs and drizzled with truffle oil
Iberico Pizza Php 780
Baked thin crust pizza with tomato sauce, Parmessan cheese, Parma Ham and fresh rocket leaves.
Samira also offers Tapas Happy Hour for only Php 850, you get unlimited cocktails and tapas. We had to take advantage of the offering while enjoying the pink sunset. The restaurants welcome walk-ins and guests who are not staying in Anya Resort can dine in.
Our staycation in Anya Restaurant is a gustatory journey, we headed straight to dinner after some drinks. We enjoyed the 4-course meal while debating over the viral creepy audio that calls for Yanny (or Laurel, they say).
The following morning, we had breakfast at Anila Poolside. The buffet spread offers the usual breakfast and more – and by more I mean, cheese platter and good bread selections.
I think, what really impressed me is how hands-on everyone is in making sure the guests have the best experience during their stay. I have seen how the General Manager has assisted the guests and helped the staff while doing occasional rounds in the property. I love how the staff feel comfortable with their managers around. They are empowered and motivated, and they love what they are doing – and such atmosphere translate into a relaxing experience that every guest enjoys.
Luxury can this be relaxing.
