Sure, January is here and that means back-to-work misery. But there are still long weekends ahead to look forward to! Luckily, there’s a new hotel in the cozy hills of Tagaytay that is so breathtaking, you and the barkada would have the the time of your life taking photos. Check out Escala Hotel; it’s a modern hotel with the most amazing view overlooking Taal volcano. And get this, they have an infinity pool! They also have a balcony with an equally stunning view. If you’re barkada isn’t the type to just coop up in the hotel, the hotel is located just a short distance away from SkyRanch and Pink Sisters, that means midnight snack drives.

There are four room types available too, from their deluxe room, premiere room, executive room and prestige room. Each room comes with free Wi-Fi, free parking, free breakfast, and complimentary drinks.

Get that last bit of cold season air with the gang before fully delving into work-mode this January.
