Weekend at GQ Resort Suites Tagaytay

Just this weekend, I went to Tagaytay with a friend and we stayed at Grand Quartiers Resort Suites in Crosswinds. It was a last minute plan, I was actually thinking about going on this crazy adventure by myself, you know, taking the bus and stuff.... luckily I didn't coz Crosswinds is like this uphill-downhill area and before I reach GQ I might have lost 130 lbs, 20 lbs more than my weight. I really wasn't familiar with the place (aside from the internet research I did) so when I got there I quickly understood why the Things To Do part of the site consisted of things you can do in Tagaytay, and not at GQ or Crosswinds. Crosswinds is like a Swiss themed village of resthouses, and some more develpments were still under construction. 

The Studio room was so better than I expected. It consisted of 2 beds, a bathroom and a kitchen area and I wish I knew this beforehand. The first thing in my mind was "I should've brought more friends. AND FOOD TO COOK." The room was very nice. 

decent kitchen


cozy room

CABLE TV!! with my fat foreshortened legs

love the bedside lamp

GQ just opened last December, and their restaurant is still under construction, as well as the gym and chapel. We had to go to Tagaytay proper to have dinner. We ate at LZM.

bigass badass bangus and kangkong (OH YEAH)

mmmm soup!
We had our leftovers bagged and later that night we reheated our food via the kitchen (hehe parang gusto lang talaga namin magamit sayang eh). I love how it has an exhaust system/fan (?) so the room wouldn't smell like food. 

Just watched TV till we fell asleep! HAHA what a lazy weekend. The next day we had our buffet breakfast at the Clubhouse. They have free shuttle service that can take you around crosswinds. On the way back, we decided to walk and experience the fresh air uphill and downhill! hehe It was a good walk though :)

yes! yes to this!

adding more trees

It was a relaxing stay, and if given the chance, I would definitely go back there. Next time, maybe a relaxing stay with my family or crazy night with more friends.

Thank you to the very accommodating staff of GQ Resort Suites Tagaytay :)
