Canyon Woods Tagaytay

The old Tagaytay is preserved at Canyon Woods Residential Resort


Whenever the temperature in Manila rises and the sun decides to shine brighter than usual, Manilenos are quick to pack their bags and head somewhere cooler. First it was Baguio that became the go-to place to escape Manila’s humid weather, but when the once sleepy town became too crowded, Manilenos found a closer spot in Tagaytay.

But much like Baguio, Tagaytay is slowly losing its countryside charm with all the condominiums, malls, and restaurants popping left and right. And it makes one wonder: what did Tagaytay look like before it is the way it is now?

Despite the changes Tagaytay had endured over the years, there’s one piece of Tagaytay that has managed to retain its picturesque beauty, and it is Canyon Woods Residential Resort.

The beautiful view from Canyon Woods’ entrance


Canyon Woods Residential Resort, or simply Canyon Woods, will make you feel like you’re in an idyllic ski resort somewhere in the United States and the only thing missing is the snow. Dotted with thousands of pine trees and complete with facilities in a cabin-like structure, the property makes guests really feel like they’re far from the city’s noise and traffic.

Canyon Woods has been in operations for over 20 years but it has managed to stay under the radar of change. Despite the place being more than two decades old now, the team behind the residential resort was able to retain its beauty and maintain the facilities. This has resulted in guests wanting to stay for a long period of time without feeling the urge to go out. And who would want to go out when everything needed for a great vacation is here?

Here are some of the areas you can explore and things you can do in Canyon Woods.
