This is a great place to view the Taal Lake. Plenty of parking with clean facilities. There are many restaurants and coffee shops that offer great view. Tried Bags of Beans, and it was excellent. Unfortunately the day we visited it was cloudy :( Had a good meal and coffee and drove back to Manila.

This Twin Lakes establishment is a place with restaurants , coffee shops , convenience store and viewing deck of Taal Lake and the namesake hotel . Notables here include Bag of Beans and Starbucks. Be wary of nice people roaming around peddling the condo units they are selling . Based on the TA reviews , this is much different from the Twin Lakes hotel on the lower level .

Everything you need is there for you to enjoy with. Visited with my family on last vacation and truly are one of the memorable. By far, one of the best view of majestic taal lake while zipping an all time favorite hot starbucks coffe. With enough restaurant to chose with, classic dining craving is no issue. After warming up for our 3 days rest in this buzzling city, grocery store are there to purchase all of your needs.
Highly recommendable.

If you’re a staying guests of Twin Lakes Hotel and you still have plenty of free time to stay in Tagaytay , make sure to include in your itinerary an ample time to stroll and explore around Twin Lakes Shopping Village, the township’s first commercial development comprised of Retail Shops, Food and Beverages/Bars,Supermarket and the equally-famous Welcoming Gate with its signature “Twin Lake” grammable signage. An added attraction in the village is the stunning view of Taal Lake through its overlooking view deck giving a free glimpse of the world’s smallest active volcano inside the small crater that is finely-coordinated with the fresh air, charming views, lush surroundings and magnificent view of the castle-inspired Twin Lakes Hotel from afar that is becoming a favorite subject among photography enthusiasts.

Aside from the scenic landscapes, cooler climate, and other natural attractions, Tagaytay is known for its variety of food destinations that most visitors find truly memorable to experience and satiate your cravings wonderfully. If you’re in the Twin Lakes Shopping Village will absolutely won’t disappoint your taste buds and craving stomach as it houses a variety of restaurants and cafes showcasing different features, themes, and concepts.

I had a chance to try three foodie destinations – a cafe, and two restaurants for a worth-filling and enjoyable food trippin’ pursuit. We started our food journey in Hap Chan Twin Lakes Branch which is part of the long-established leading authentic Chinese Restaurant Chain in the Philippines known for its classic Hong Kong dining experience concept. The next stop is the modern style French Cafe Le Creperie that specializes in Parisian meals, hearty dishes with distinctive European and taste and specialty desserts headlined by its well-loved signature crepes. For our last stop before heading back to Manila is the Filipino restaurant Bagoong Club that makes you savor and discover the unique and flavored Filipino dishes with their very own special Bagoong (a sauce or paste with made from fermented or salted fish) infused in their menu offerings. Another must-visit restaurant in the village, I swear (especially if you’re a Filipino food lover like me)!

Every restaurant in the Twin Lakes Shopping Village has its balcony or veranda overlooking the Taal Volcano and the Twin Lakes Hotel ideally for photography or solo and group shots or if your group preferred to eat outside the main dining area. It also has access to the petite ground at the back perfect to stroll around its greenery surroundings breathing the fresh air and taking some quality time with yourself and your loved ones (and significant behalf). There are spots in the area where you can have your favorite OOTD shots either your solo shot or with your family and friends.

Lastly, I found out also that “the most beautiful Starbucks outlet in the Philippines” is confined in the shopping village. Due to limited time, I wasn’t able to quickly visit the shop but I’ll make sure to drop by next time I’ll visit Tagaytay again.

The moment you plan to visit Tagaytay for your next weekend getaway (or any given day), make sure to include Twin Lakes Shopping Village on your itinerary if you are hoping to discover and explore the great mix of promising and value-for-money restaurants, cafes, and hang-out places where you can stay and do your serious stuff, or simply spend your chill hours in with your family and friends with added scenic views of the majestic Taal Volcano and the Tagaytay cold weather known (and loved) for over the years.

Since we live in Tagaytay, we often visit Twin Lakes, which is only 10km from the city center. It is one of the nicest and most popular sites in Tagaytay. It's a good place to get an awesome view of Ta'al Volcano, Lake Ta'al, and the scenic mountains nearby. Of course, there are other popular attractions at Twin Lakes, including a Santi's Delicatessen, and a small Robinson's Supermarket. The best dining at Twin Lakes is Buon Giorno Italian Restaurant and Bag of Beans, which are both superb and highly recommended. several very good restaurants.

Best time to visit is weekdays to avoid the weekend heavy traffic from Manila.

We decide to have dinner in twin lakes as the view was so nice, but only few option to choose of and some of the restaurant already closed. But the view was stunning. and if you prepare to eat here it quite expensive and I dont suggest for a big group. The place is only good for stopover as there is robinson supermarket and 711

A stopover point that provides a scenic view of Taal Lake. This area is located after Alfonso and few minutes before Nasugbu, Batangas. Parking is free. It is complete with a supermarket, pharmacy, restaurants, and coffee shops.

Twin lakes – . We arrived to this Twin lakes Place. This is an Establishment with some choices of Restaurant, Grocery, and Cafes. It’s a good stopover place to grab snack or lunch or dinner with a great view. After looking around, we ended up having our late lunch at the Purple Bee Café. We liked the food there though it’s also a bit pricey but what to expect we are in Tagaytay. But we enjoyed the food we liked it. Loved the mango graham shake. Actually it can be good for sharing as it’s in tall glass. After staying there we went out and headed to Alfonso for the last destination.
