1. Take photos of this Greek-Mediterranean inspired well-being enclave and feel yourself part of this beauty.
Bella is Italian word translating to beautiful–and no doubt, this vacation spot is so beautiful! It’s another must-visit place in the Philippines that can instantly transport you into a dream vacation.

2. Visit the gallery.
La Bella Boutique Hotel features sleek rooms where you can just chill, relax, and maybe watch Netflix on bed, but there are more exciting areas to check out when in the area. Roam around in their gallery on the ground floor connecting to the reception area. Check out the exhibition of artsy crafts, paintings, and unique wooden pieces of furniture.
2. Take delight in organic food.
Organico Gourmet by Chef Gloria de Vera was voted as one of the top 10 most loved restaurants in San Juan and Mandaluyong. My mom and I were among the people invited to experience their first day of opening in Luna Mencias back in 2015. We were also happy to learn that they have a branch in La Bella Community that serves hotel guests with breakfast, all-day all-natural organic food, and a wide range of healthy home-cooked meals.
4. Swim in the pool.
La Bella’s swimming pool is nothing complex; it’s not a lap pool, but it’s excellent for dipping and playing in the water especially with kids. Their outdoor swimming pool offers a sense of fun and somewhat “magical quality” because it’s transparent like an aquarium or a large tank. The lack of visible structure is a brilliant aspiration for both swimmers and spectators alike.
5. Reconnect with nature.
La Bella is a tranquil choice if you want to relax somewhere like in a retreat haven. It has a wide garden area adorned with tall trees, plants, and flowers where you can spend long afternoons meditatively communing with nature. Sneak in some quality time with the family and make your way to unwind and just admire this quiet space.
If you’ve been craving to hit the road and have a short trip even during a weekend, this might be best place to go for your next staycation. La Bella Boutique Hotel in Tagaytay is huge so guests may take a while to walk around the entire compound and check on all the wonderful amenities. Its beautiful architecture, spotless service, great dining options in their “in-house restaurants,” and its accessible location make it a great pick for discerning (and well-heeled) travelers.
