Discovery Country Suites Tagaytay Mother's Day Special

The cozy, warm and inviting ambiance of a country home is what a lot of us wants to experience when on vacation. Just imagining the cool afternoon breeze and comfortable soft plushy bed is enough to give you a relaxed feeling even for a short period of time. What more if you can experience a day or 2? That will be one relaxing vacation, you wouldn't even want to get out of the room.

Not many hotel and properties in the Philippines can pull off such ambiance. Most try but fail to get the overall home-y countryside feel. A few got it right, and one of them is in a nice cool location, just an hour away from Metro Manila -- Discovery Country Suites Tagaytay.
On my day trip there, it didn't even take more than an hour to make me feel at home. We went there to sample their "Mother's Day" menu special and it's definitely going to be a memorable day. Everything was calm and serene. It's a must-experience for moms to give her a day off from her hectic day-to-day life. Unless you be one, you wouldn't know how hard it is to be a mom. She deserves a treat as great as this.

Mother's Day Menu at Restaurant Verbena*
Not a lot of people know that Discovery Country Suites Tagaytay has a hidden gem of a culinary delight away from the usual food fare. This is what they want to showcase this coming mother's day. From Strawberry Fields Salad, US Angus Beef Goulash, Mediterranean Seafood Bouillabaisse, to Crustacean Penne Au Gratin, these creations are carefully thought of like a mom's care, made with passion like how a mom loves his child, and presented just like how mom prepares those delicious comfort food meals you always had when you were younger.

This day, let mom take a day off from the kitchen and have her taste of Restaurant Verbena's mother's day special. Here are some of the specials that day:

Top (L-R): Strawberry Fields Salad, Tomato topped with cheese and mashed potato side dish, Herbed Roasted Chicken
Bottom (L-R): Meditteranean Seafood Bouillabaisse, Crustacean Penne Au Gratin, Beef Wrapped in Bacon, Bread appetizer
After lunch, provided there's space for more, there's a special treat prepared for everyone in the family -- specially those with sweet tooth. For this mother's day only, they have prepared a dessert buffet** perfect for your high tea. All of which are created by the mother of the house, Ms. Rhea, Property manager of Discovery Country Suites Tagaytay, who happened to be a pastry chef as well. Some of her creations comes from way back, when she was just starting, as she perfects them one by one. Soon enough, you can try her creations, in tandem with the resident chef of Restaurant Verbana!

Other mother's day activity:
> Mom at the Movies***
Experience watching movies with your mom, under the stars! Guests get a bucket of popcorn and complimentary refreshments. Non-guests can also experience and enjoy this one-of-a-kind movie experience by paying Php 250 nett per person.

> Free head massage
There's also free head massage for those availing of the mother's day offer.

Everytime you think as a parent, you know that you want the best for your children. Nothing less. This is the perfect payback for all the hardwork, love and care your mom gave you. If you really want something special this is it -- a special lunch at Restaurant Verbena, a sweet dessert buffet to end that wonderful meal, and an overnight stay to complete her relaxing day off. This is the time to go the extra mile.

At Discovery Country Suites Tagaytay, there are 7 suite rooms available. Each is unique and themed based on how the rooms are named. From St. Tropez to Andalucia to Ceylon, there is no one and the same room. Some rooms have working fireplace, perfect to complete that cozy feel, while some have in-room jacuzzis for that ultimate relaxation experience.

"I'm very particular with rooms," I said to the PR of Discovery Suites. "But this one is one for the books." As I said earlier, not a lot of resorts and properties can pull off such an authentic country home feel and this one in Tagaytay is a must-go for those looking for the ultimate in service and relaxation. This mother's day, there is no reason why your mom doesn't deserve this treat. A short vacation that she deserves at one of the country's premiere property.
