A week ago, we celebrated my wife’s birthday in a far away pristine island of Leyte province. She and I enjoyed the air breeze and humming sound of sea waves and trees. It’s just a simple and solemn escapade celebration treat for herself . We set a small table beside our temporary island tent shelter in preparation for her simple celebration. We prepared simple yet satiating meal such as small cake bought from bake shop in the nearby town proper with colorful sparkling candles to blow on top of it . Along with it is a whole grilled chicken and rice. It’s just purely plain, simple and should I say a romantic celebration of life just the two us in a far distant island. But the celebration didn’t stop there. Joanne is an un-selfish person who wants to share happy moments with her loved ones through out of town bonding and stay-cations. Especially that her birthday is a special day, she wants as well to spend it remarkably with the family. Almost a month prior to her planned celebration with her family, she made a reservation online with The Carmelence View for a staycation escapade in Tagaytay City.
The Carmelence View was named after one of the property’s original land owners, the late Carmen Aguinaldo-Melencio, from whom the name “Carmelence” is a fusion of “Carmen” and “Melencio”. She was the eldest daughter of the Philippine’s first President, General Emilio Aguinaldo y Famy and was known to many as Doña Carmen, to friends and relatives as Mameng and to her grandchildren as Meme. She was married to the late Ambassador to Japan Jose P. Melencio who co-owned the property and whose marriage was blessed with two daughters: one a bar top notcher who became one of the few female Supreme Court Justices of the Philippines, Mme. Ameurfina A. Melencio-Herrera, and the other was the first female general surgeon of the Philippines, Dr. Emilina A. Melencio-Fernando MD, who completed her degree at Cornell University in New York.
The beautiful property on which The Carmelence View was built on runs along the Tagaytay ridge, in the heart of the city, along the national highway. Because of the strategic location and rolling terrain of the property, The Carmelence View offers a central view of the lake and, on a clear day, affords a view of three bodies of water, namely, a part of Laguna Lake, Taal Lake and Batangas Bay (South China Sea) plus unobstructed views of the mountains of Makiling, Makulot, Banahaw, the craggy range of Batulao and the outline of the mountains of Mindoro.
This place is a perfect destination for couple or family whose looking for a peaceful and romantic venue to relax. From its room veranda, nice scenic view of Taal Lake can be seen. This place has good and relaxing ambiance with nice landscape and embarked theme of light and airy style.
How To Get There?
From Manila, take SLEX and Sta. Rosa exit. Drive straightly approaching to Tagaytay rotunda route and pass directly until reaching Petron gas station and Robinson’s Supermarket Tagaytay. From there, you can see a huge billboard of The Carmelence Lodge in the right side. But the main gate of The Carmelence View is across of the lodge billboard, in the left side.
