Watching those glorious days to pass by made it a perfect sense to reflect and enjoy the vibe of the place.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from Hacienda Isabella since this was an abrupt invite.  When I checked their website and facebook page, this made me decide to come by as the place looks very interesting. Yes, I remembered then that I got an invite for a food trip way back then.  Maybe, this would be the right time.

As we went up to Tagaytay, my strong eagerness to see the place made me more excited.  We turn right across the street after Bag of Beans. There were lot of signage around that would lead to directions of Hacienda Isabella.

We were rounded for almost 15 minutes, rutted down and made me realize how this wonderful place is secluded yet unique on its own. As I realized, it is not somewhere that an average tourist nor a traveler would stumble upon this nostalgic and peaceful place.

The property is located in a very quiet place in Indang Cavite, only a few minutes from Tagaytay which is another fabulous place to explore.   The cultural landscape together with cold climate and excellent gastronomy tempts travelers to have a visit.

Personally, I was blown away on arrival as we get around.   Upon checking in, they gave us a detail tour of the grounds and run down all activities available in the area.

For the exteriors,  Hacienda Isabella’s atmosphere and overall view is so amazing that the whole area is the most sought perfect location for weddings and shooting like movies and telenovela.

An off-beaten track which I exactly what I wanted.

Even it is an isolated area, the artsy ambiance  is very well equipped with wooden furniture with a touch of elegance and style – a comfort of  rustic yet modern innovation decorated with items that got to different locations around the country –  collections like pile up luggage and vases.

All over the beautiful surrounding, guests can have a lovely garden complete with swimming pool to plunge and even a  sunbathing area.  Their spacious area gave us those opportunity to have our group fitness activity.

One can feel you are the only guests around because of those private feeling.

All rooms got those own unique character with a touch of earth tones and artifacts to give those local feel.

Below is the entrance of our room named The Marrakech at Villa 7.

We slept in a bedroom where one can accommodate 3 – 5 people –  a master bed and a triple bed in a wooden beam.

Its bathroom is equipped with hot shower and sink.

One has to be prepared that within the room there is no internet connection nor a cabled television.  It is a company of scenery that creates a cozy and comfortable atmosphere.

Good thing that our room is connected to an open deck where we can lounge and just chill out.

The house would lead straight to a lovely and rustic dining area which was accompanied by a fire place and a dining table.

The food is good, not what I would call exceptional cuisine. I guess there were fixed menus per meal.  Everything they served were tasty, filling and satisfying.  Organic food is what I love.  To name a few that marked to my mind were those fresh green salad, pumpkin soup, their pastas, suman and fish fillet in lemon sauce.  Definitely, I will be sharing those food we feast with my other blog, www.foodsonthespot.com.

Overall, this classy accommodation near Tagaytay is the most fabulous retreat for an unforgettable vacation.

For the next two days, we spent the rest of the day chilling out at the lodge, take those fitness activity in the morning and plunge at the swimming pool.  The charm of the place became apparent.
