Days before our staycation in Vista Tala Resort, I was physically and emotionally stressed about work and grown up stuff. I went on a 2 days 1 night staycation with my co-bloggers last March 23-24 in a sophisticated resort in Orani, Bataan and poof, I found the best medication for my stress-fueled heart.
Before anything else, shout out to my co-bloggers for satisfying a relaxing weekend with me. Go follow them on their respective Facebook pages! Reyly of Travelokaloka Girl, Bobby of Travel Tayo PH, Ara of The Adventuress, Gerry of G Ventures PH, and our Miss Universe Junnel. Lol!
Vista Tala Resort is located in the isolated mountainous parts of Brgy. Tala in Orani, Bataan. Actually, it wasn’t my first time visiting Vista Tala, the first time I came here was with my family back in January of 2017. The resort that time compared to this day is still the same as before, it still guarantees a relaxing vacation with your family and friends.
Vista Tala: Resort on top of the Mountains
A perfect way to connect with nature, indulge in the stunning view of the mountains, swim in the infinity pool during sunset or sunrise, eat your dinner in a relaxing view deck, or dip in your own private jacuzzi while enjoying a can of beer, pretty much sums up Vista Tala!
Villa with Jacuzzi
We spent our staycation in a Villa with a private jacuzzi and a view deck. We had a great time dipping into the jacuzzi and it was like a typical night with your friends while sharing stories and experiences. Of course, a classy night is not without a can of beer.
Vista Tala Resort Swiming Pools
There are 3 swimming pools in the whole resort. The pool in the Acacia Pavilion, the main infinity pool with an overlooking view, and the instagrammable pool located on the opposite side. If you’ll ask me which one is the best, I personally enjoyed all the pools as it has its own unique way to impress you.
Friendly Reminder: proper swimming attire should be observed.
Vista Tala Restaurant: Overlooking Dining Experience
This is the kind of dining experience that will surely stick around your memories for quite some time. Before coming back here the second time after 2 years, one of the best memories I remembered first was dining in their stylish restaurant. It was a simple concept of an overlooking view while dining just like any other restaurants in Tagaytay to compare, but I’m not quite sure if it’s just me or I just really appreciate this kind of dining concept. I appreciate a place more whenever I get the chance to connect with nature, and this restaurant is just too close to nature that I super enjoyed it.
Activities: Zipline, Rappeling, Wall Climbing
If you think you’re done relaxing and you want an activity that will bring out that energy in you, here are a few activities to enjoy!
Zipline – PHP250.00/person
Rappeling – PHP150.00/person
Wall Climbing – PHP150.00/person
If you want a bird’s eye view of the whole resort, the best way is to try the zipline.
