We were just old friends trying to find a change of scene from the hustle and bustle of Manila, so we set off to Tagaytay on a weekday starting off from Greenhills before the morning office rush. We meet some other friends at the Petron station along the expressway to convoy our way to Tagaytay with no definite destination.
There were suggestions from all six of us, until we decided to check out a new place called The Theodore. We had no great expectations, we just wanted to have a nice place, with a great view and friendly surroundings. We were pleasantly surprised by the quaint and cozy boutique hotel. We first perched ourselves by the gazebo with some welcome drinks and some girl talk. Then after, we were toured around the theme rooms that were artistically tasteful.
We were lucky enough to meet the owners who were there that day to visit the property. They joined us for lunch in the main dining area, which felt like home. The food was like home cooked meals and the host were most gracious, it felt like we were visiting old friends. Unfortunately, the day ended abruptly since we were trying to avoid the afternoon traffic rush back to Manila; but we left feeling refreshed and contented. Not only do we have a refuge the next time we decide to take a midweek break, but we gained new friends!
The Theodore is a definite thumbs up, check it out!
