Urban Suites Tagaytay: Our “Couples Retreat Getaway” experience + giveaway

Since Ian got a new work, we seldom see each other. We both got busy at work so we’re thinking of having a break and need to unwind. Luckily, Ms. Irish Arbo PM-ed us on our Facebook page telling us that she will be sponsoring us a 3D2N ACCOMMODATION. Guess where? In Tagaytay! So timely that we immediately accepted the offer.


SMDC Wind Residences

It’s a family business who owns condo units at SMDC Wind Residences. They now have a total of 5 units from Tower 3 and 5 with different designs and setup. They got their first unit last 2016.

Click here to see their five units.

They purchased these because it’s their dream to have a house in Tagaytay but they decided to open their units for daily tourists who wants to experience Tagaytay without breaking a budget. The people’s favorite is their Minimalist Condo because of it’s cozy feels.

Urban Suites Tagaytay is located at Tower 3.

The room we got was their Deluxe Studio Unit.

Look how comfortable my sleep was! LOL

In the dining area, they have a microwave, kettle, refrigerator. The dining table is located beside the bed. For the kitchenwares, they have spoons, mugs, and glasses. They also provided some coffee.

Dining area

They also have slippers inside the room! Plus point for this since we forgot to bring our own slippers. Hehe.


It also has a walk-in closet with mirrors. It has hangers and hook for hanging clothes. HUHU can’t stop taking pictures here. HAHA.

Inside the bathroom, it has water heater, bidet, mirror, hair dryer, and shampoo & shower gel. They also provided some toiletries like tissues and toothbrush.

And their balcony, my favorite corner! Look at the view from our room.

You can have your breakfast here, chill and wait for the sunset, or just even take your #ootd shots. LOL.




Our package consists a free massage so we didn’t wasted any time. We got pampered for atleast one hour. Wooo! The massage was really good and relaxing! We almost fell aslept. LOL.

The only photos I got during our massage. HEHE.

They have a massage room but according to our source, it has only 2 beds so most of their customers request a room service. It costs 500 php per head good for 1 hour.


In our package, it has complimentary breakfast for 2 days! What I loved about this was they delivered the food straight into your room. This is life!


They served Pinoy breakfast and the food tasted good! If you just availed the room and want breakfast, it costs 200 php per head.



Look how big their clubhouse is!

Their clubhouse has function rooms, billiards hall, and other indoor activities.


It has indoor and outdoor pools.

Note: You need to pay 150 php fee if you are going for a swim.






This has a good view and perfect spot for chilling especially at night. But take note that you need to sign up first in the lobby before going up here. One of the staff will assists you all throughout if you are going to Sky Lounge.

Since it’s raining when we went there, here’s the view from Sky Lounge.




This is where the mailbox is located. It has also tables and chairs if you want to take a rest or chill.



The room is simple but you will feel relaxed. As in super! The room has a good AC. The internet is fast. Very perfect for staycation! Did I say that our room is also a good spot for sunset watching? Yes, it is!


The rooms are very affordable. If you want some discounts, book through AirBnb. Don’t have AirBnb account yet? SIGN UP HERE and get a 1 600 php discount on your first booking.

We met the caretaker, Ms. Mavi. She assisted us during our stay. We got some problems inside the room but she immediately respond to us and fixed whatever the problems are.


SMDC Wind Residences has a lot of amenities. All that you’re looking for are here. You don’t need to go out to other places. Their clubhouse is really big. Can accommodate hundred pax, I guess?


It has a good location. Very easy to find. It has also a good view since you can sight Taal Lake. If you want to go outside and explore Tagaytay, they are near in Sky Ranch. Very accessible, right?
