Our Nuvali Experience

Finally! We were able to visit the new "pasyalan" at Sta. Rosa Laguna last January 1. I've waited for months for this to happen and see if the manmade lake with hundreds to thousand of Kois really exist and I want to ride the water taxi too. It's only 40 minutes drive from Manila to Sta. Rosa if you're coming from SLEX going to Tagaytay.

Welcome to Nuvali!

The manmade lake... I just love the beauty of Nuvali!
Love the fresh air and open spaces ...

One of the reasons why we went there was the water taxi. Jeffrey wanted to experience riding on a speed boat and we all got excited too. There's a maximum of 12 persons per boat. They have 3 boats and 3 stations. Just don't know why they called it Water Taxi though. Oh! The rater per person is only P 30.00, it's very cheap :)

See how happy Jeff is while riding the boat :)

The main reason that got us excited were the Kois. There were thousands of Kois and you can feed them by buying fish feeds in one of the booth at Nuvali. I think we were able to buy more than 10 packs of feeds.

It looks like they're very hungry!

It's prohibited to feed them with anything except for the feeds being sold
in their booth for P 15.00 per pack

My boys really enjoyed feeding the kois :)

Nyek! The super hungry fishes!

You can also rent a bike for P 60.00 per hour.

Actually, Nuvali is a biker's haven. There were dedicated lanes for bikers and I learned that the residents in the area are encouraged to bike for fitness. Such a treat for bikers like my hubby who now wished to have a property there someday :)

Two bikers passed by, kaya si hubby nanghihinayang at hindi nadala ang bike niya, as if naman papayagan ko siya! hehehe...
I think one of the reasons why Nuvali clicked for travelers going to Tagaytay are the food establishment in the area. Just like we did, we had a brief stopover at Nuvali to eat lunch and enjoy the activities that it offers. Below are the pictures of some food establishment that I was able to capture on cam.

Domo Tomo

Yellow Cab

Pig Out

Starbucks Coffee


David's tea House
There's also, Crisostomo (fine dining), and Brother's Burger around the area, but the Reyes Barbecue and Kanin Get It (by Kanin Club) were located at the Convergy's building... I forgot the others ... Ooops! there's a Nature Trails Cafe for bikers too... It's a restaurant with a bike shop, a shower room for bikers and their bikes... "it was really cool" according to hubby :)

We really had a great time at Nuvali and we're looking forward for another visit soon for some bird watching activity :)
