Updated as of December 6, 2019
Whether you are crashing in for the night or spending a long vacation in Tagaytay, Discovery Country Suites will make sure that you will not feel homesick. To call it a home away from home is more fitting than to call it a hotel.
Originally a Tagaytay vacation home of the Tiu family, Discovery Country Suites is an intimate bed and breakfast that emanates a stately country manor perched on Tagaytay’s ridge.
They have a total of seven spacious and homey master suites, making it a perfectly warm and comforting place for Tagaytay goers.
It is an ideal country home with its elements of oak and stone foundations that blends gracefully with the fine furnishings and art pieces.
Once you arrive, their amiable staff will welcome you home and guide you to your designated suite.
Each master suite is inspired by famous world cities. One of which is their Premier suite Siam (Php 7,800++). Named after the former name of Thailand, this elegant suite exudes a simple yet cozy old-world charm with its intricate wood elements and decor.

Guests can even book the entire 7-room manor for their own events, reunions, or a simple family vacation.
They also have an in-house restaurant called Restaurant Verbana known for its rich and stimulating flavors of contemporary fusion cuisine paired with farm-fresh country food.
