The Christmas season always brings feelings of joy and hope to Filipinos. As the yuletide holidays draw near, Crosswinds Luxury Resorts Suites in Tagaytay made sure to lift up the spirits of people through its giant Christmas tree that can be seen all the way from the Aguinaldo Highway.
Last Saturday, my friends and I witnessed the lighting of the tree along with the staging of the Christmas story in music and dance. It was a beautiful presentation that captured what we, Filipinos, should remember -- there is always hope amid adversities. The birth of Jesus Christ gave us that promise.
We watched fireworks light up the sky and joined people in ushering the holidays by having our photos taken beside the giant Christmas tree and even, a real, live Santa Claus on his sleigh! It wasn't only the young guests who had fun that night. The young-at-heart had our share of the levity as well :)
It was nice to be back at Crosswinds with its beautiful sceneries and structures. I have fond memories of our family's stay there a few months ago. I also love the cool Tagaytay weather that's perfect for cuddling up with a loved one.
This Christmas season, if you're looking for a great place to spend a couple or more days away from home, consider booking a room at Crosswinds' Grand Quartier. Have a cozy staycation, cook your own food in your room's well-equipped kitchen, and have a movie marathon with your friends or family!
Don't forget to climb the small hill where the Christmas tree is and spend some time just admiring the great view from up there. Just below it is the Christmas village where you can find lots of souvenirs and decorations for your home.
If you're looking for more excitement, you can always visit other tourist spots in Tagaytay and eat out at one of the restaurants that serve hot and hearty bulalo that's perfect to eat in cold places like this.
Crosswinds is located at Brgy. Iruhin Central, Calamba Road, Tagaytay City. This amazing property is managed by Hospitality International, Inc. (HII).
