The Overview

Once the owner's getaway home, this intimate property is perched on the ridge overlooking Lake Taal. Each of its seven guest rooms, ranging in size from 33 to 72 square meters, is fitted out with goose-down pillows and 300-count bedding, and has a subtle theme—nautical (the "Nantucket" suite), Mediterranean ("Saint-Tropez") or Thai ("Siam"). But what really stands out here is Verbena, a small, top-flight restaurant offering a taste of the thriving local organic scene through its soups and salads, while mains cover everything from Australian lamb chops with a herb and Dijon crust to roasted prawns and scallops with carrot risotto, cumin cream drizzled with a sweet sherry vinegar. For those with a sweet tooth—even for those who don't have one—the chocolate marquise with vanilla custard and toasted pistachios is a decadent must. Inside, a fireplace adds to the coziness, and outside, the sweeping lake view from the Jacuzzi is enough to make anyone forget their cares. Bonus Point As you're settling in for the night, warm milk and fresh cookies are delivered to your room.
