Recently, I had another staycation with my best of friends. It’s already becoming a habit of our circle to have staycation every quarter. Though we had several choices of hotels, we all agreed to go to Crosswinds Resort Suites this time. We get a one bedroom suite and book the deal from the Deal Grocer.
So, what’s in it that made us picked it?

Crosswinds is a haven south of Manila inspired by the architecture of Switzerland. Rows of picturesque chalets sit serenely on a lush terrain at one of the highest points of Tagaytay.Over 20,000 pine trees perfume the property with its sweet scent, further adding to the calm while the music of interweaving winds soothe the senses.

We are all happy the moment we saw our room. It exceeded our expectations and surprised us with its beautiful and peaceful scenery outside our window. The spacious, clean, and elegant room received praises from us and we’re glad we made the right choice.
The staffs are indeed helpful and they assist us with our luggage and all the kitchen appliances. They’re friendly and they ensure that we get all the things we needed in the room before they leave.
Other than the mentioned features of this hotel, we also enjoy the Christmas village where we took several photos. Christmas village is the highlight during the Ber-months season. It starts on September and ends after the new year. So, people must take advantage and feel the holiday vibe of this cozy and luxurious place.
Crosswinds has also fully equipped kitchen, and we decided to cook for our dinner and breakfast. I enjoyed cooking because I have complete kitchen appliances to use. I encourage everyone, especially those who’d like to save money to take advantage of the kitchen. I felt great for utilizing all the tools and kitchen appliances. There are nearby restaurants, however, if you don’t bring a car, better bring some foods and do your complete grocery lists to ensure you have enough food during your stay.
We had an advance pictorial for Tin and Darren, c/o our photographer and fashion blogger Ben of GeekyBf.
That Switzerland ambiance will make you want to extend another day to this place. The pine trees, the colorful houses, and buildings added more charm to this place.
Make sure you bring nice clothes for pictorial and extra batteries for your phone and camera. Picture taking is part of the bonding that you and your friends do that make the vacation more fun and fabulous.
Also, I suggest bringing a laptop and movies that you and your friends can watch. Better coordinate with the staff of the hotel with regards to the appropriate connector to use. What we brought didn’t work, so, I suggest that you asked ahead of time so you can enjoy the movies. Movie marathon is also a great bonding for the whole family.
Make sure you bring your swimming clothes so you can go for a swim in their outdoor swimming pool. Also, for coffee lovers like me, there’s a nearby Coffee Bean Tea Leaf where you can take pleasure of your favorite beverages.
We really had an amazing vacation in this place, and I’m planning to take my siblings with me for them to see how cool the place is.
I know we are all thrifty and we always try to find the best places in the Philippines that we can visit, but nowadays, it is easy and accessible to find affordable places, hotels, restaurant, and services.
There’s a lot of promos and discounts that we can avail. In our case, we always book our hotels in Deal Grocer. We are a happy and grateful for Deal Grocer for making it easy for us to find these places and experience luxurious hotels for weekend getaways.
How to go to Crosswinds?

From Olivares, rent a tricycle and they will take you to the gate of Crosswinds, and you only need to pay around P150.00-P200.00 for the fare. Approach the staff or the guard because the resort will provide a private car or coaster to transfer you to the resort’s main front desk.
