2nd day stay at Cross Winds Resort Suites Tagaytay - pool time and heli-pad fun shots!

Our 1st day was just inside the premises of the condo resort hotel, but on our 2nd day of stay, we tried the outdoors and felt the cold summer breeze in the morning, also I love the smell of pine trees around the Quadrilles of Cross Winds Resort Suite here in Tagaytay.

Everything is greeny and living with nature is just 1 hour away from our home in Cavite. I thought at first that living in Cavite is already okay and pollution free, but as time goes by..the polluted air now reaches our area and I think Tagaytay is the best way to escape from a air polluted city.

I'm glad that we still have trees here in Tagaytay, and here in Cross Winds, they planted 20,000 pine tress and continues to preserve and grow more trees.

There are lots of hotels, BnB and resort here in Tagaytay. Cross Winds is now one of the key players in providing luxury living in the mountainside with Swiss style inspired Quadrilles.

We just stayed in our hotel room in our 1st day and we make sure we enjoyed the cooled aircon rooms and also we love the fast wifi connection.

At night was our play time with our son Ashton, here we build the tallest blocks hahaahaha.
During this photo op, Ashton bumps the tall blocks with his butt, the blocks fell to the floor with a major toy blocks tidal wave hahaha.

The next morning, this is our 2nd day, we ask for the FREE car service, we went around Cross Winds and our agenda is to check out the play ground and the swimming pool. There's a schedule for the FREE car service, and it is needed whenever someone ask for lift. The car went back for us when we stayed for a snack at the Christmas Village area.

Heli-pad area, the three of us went for a little hike up to another hill. There they have the heli-pad for guest and also for the owner of the whole resort. The heli-pad also serves as venue for weddings, mass and reception or parties!.

More pine tress can be spotted here at the heli-pad area. It was hot that day but the cold breeze easily beats the heat of the sun, we continued our hike and did some cool photo ops on top of the hill.

I first introduced to my son Ashton ....the makahiya plant and also the dandelion flower, he's amazed on the makahiya plant and also he enjoys blowing the dandelion flower. I told him to make a wish when he blew the dandelions.

The Christmas Store is an all year round store for Christmas ornaments and displays, its like the home of Santa Claus here in the Philippines. I bet in the future, this will be the spot for a pinoy Santa to live in.

In the other side of the Christmas Store, I spotted this mountain slope and its greeny trees and field and it reminds me of that wall paper of Windows XP.

We also met Lhodie of Cross Winds, she works here for Hospitality International, Inc, (HII). She tour us around and also showed to us this showroom of their house unit valued at a 7-9 million pesos.

After our stroll and tour around Cross Winds, we want back to the hotel and change our clothes for the day swim dip. I'm glad that the weather is perfectly fine for summer here in Tagaytay. Not too hot or cold, just the right weather.

Our basketball that was filled up with water hahahah. Its fun to see Ashton enjoys the 2-3 feet pool. Its our first time to see our son walks in the pool by himself. Last pool trips couple months ago, Ashton is so afraid to go in the water. Here at Cross Winds, it will be memorable because we saw lots of Ashton's first.

We're still amaze on the set up of Cross Winds, me and my wife are planning our next visit here and we just plan it right there when we stay in Cross Winds and haven't got the time to travel back to our home. We want to go back because of the nature tripping and awesome view. It feels like that we are located in  a far away place, but the truth is that we live an hour away from home. Tagaytay City is just a common place for us who lives here in Cavite, but our concept was changed and it belongs to Cross Winds now, not just the Taal, but also the Swiss-inspired living and new community.

Cross Winds Resort Suite is not your 5 star hotel or mega resort, its like glam camping with a luxury twist, instead of living in camping tent, you'll live in a weather coated quadrilles that is built for cold and hot weather in the mountains.

Don't forget your back packs, food and money when you stay here, bec. if you don't have food or some playthings... or creative ideas on how to enjoy the outdoors....your stay will be boring.
