A relaxing Escape
TAGAYTAY, Philippines – It’s a sanctuary that’s sure to surpass expectations and go beyond the limit of one’s imagination.
With opulence and grandeur often defined by a development’s scale and size, the latest resort property to rise within the balmy and windy City of Tagaytay is quite an exception. While relatively small in size and scale, this rare of a gem called Anya Resort & Residences has all of luxury and elegance written all over it.
“Anya is the Philippines’ first world-class resort brand that meets internationally recognized hotel and hospitality standards, infused with the warmth and cordiality Filipinos are known for. In Anya, our guiding philosophy can be summed up in three words: exclusivity, privacy and space. Guests and investors will see this represented in the layout and design of the property, the amenities, and the service that we will provide,” explained Pedro E. Roxas, chairman of the board at Roxaco Land Corporation.
Currently part of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World group, Anya Resort & Residences is one of the 520 small, independent hotels that exude excellence and offer that genuine, one-of-a-kind hotel experience which is characteristic of every SLH partner.
An esteemed group in the hospitality industry, SLH carefully selects every hotel partner and ensures that members would continue to adhere to its set standards and deliver unmatched satisfaction to guests. Every hotel partner goes through a rigorous screening process before it becomes part of the SLH group.
“You could say that the people behind the property development really know what the luxury market wants and has a good track record in meeting their expectations,” Roxas noted.
First class developer
Anya Resort & Residences, which is envisioned to go beyond the promise of sheer elegance and luxury, is being developed by Roxaco Land, the property development arm of Roxas and Company Inc. As it is, the country’s leading first class residential resort community developer already has in its portfolio a number of upscale projects ranging from first class residential resort communities to the open-lot residential subdivisions that are mostly located in Batangas and Cavite.
As the company intends to establish a significant presence in the real estate scene in Southern Luzon and eventually nationwide, it continues to beef up its portfolio with new additions such as the Anya Resort & Residences, which presents a lifestyle of unparalleled sophistication and comfort set within 7.2 hectares of nature’s unadulterated and immaculate beauty.
Roxaco Land, through Anya, is optimistic that it can raise the bar anew in the hospitality and residential segments while at the same time redefine every individual’s perception and appreciation of what true relaxation and luxury is all about. Through its boutique development, Roxaco Land provides all the necessary elements that will allow owners and guests to revel in the sea of calm and tranquility.
“Our design group has incorporated details that reflect the Filipino hospitality and home. The interiors are warm, welcoming and elegant. The landscape highlights local planting and allows one to truly take in the beauty of nature. We’ve even considered the acoustic design of our spaces, that they would promote tranquility and rest,” Roxas explained.
Key amenities, services
Anya Resort & Residences is an exclusive residential enclave and a boutique luxury resort that will feature 54 resort estates, 80 resort suites and 126 luxury, full service branded residences all set within immaculately manicured gardens, matured over the last ten years and atop a gently undulating terrain.
It will feature dining rooms and cafes that will be headed by an internationally recognized Relais Chateau chef, who will create a concept and menu that highlights the freshness of Tagaytay. Anya Resort & Residences’ spa will meanwhile offer treatments and therapies based on time-tested Filipino wisdom on health and wellness. The services to be offered will be highly personalized and detail-oriented, while the amenities, room design, and garden landscape will all contribute to making Anya one’s second home and much more, Roxas claimed.
Much focus is also being put on delivering “service with personality,” with the belief that such a move will allow for the creation of intimate experiences for guests and owners alike.
“The Ask-Anya-Assistant (AAA) is the embodiment of Anya’s services-we are at your beck and call, at your every whim; always at your service, assisting with pleasure. Before your vacation even starts, your AAA coordinates all your activities and makes the necessary arrangements to ensure your vacation, meeting, or excursion goes smoothly,” added Roxaco Land Corp. President and CEO Santiago R. Elizalde.
“Apart from this, we also made sure that basic eco-friendly features expected of luxury accommodations are incorporated in the design and service. We’ve made sure that the development of the property provides maximum returns for the investor. Hence, we’ve complemented the architecture by using long-term and robust materials that will stand the test of time. This greatly ensures that the property value will appreciate,” Elizalde added.
An epitome of a true luxury lifestyle property, Anya Resort & Residences is set to bring to Tagaytay a unique experience in terms of dining, wellness, ambiance and service. And guests can only expect world-class quality because Anya stands on the firm foundation of some of the strongest companies in the Philippine luxury property market.
Onboard this project are world-class designers and construction managers, all of whom are regarded for their respective expertise in creating developments founded on the concept of excellence, quality and perfection. The collaboration with Manny Samson & Associates (MSA), Ecoplan, and SLH Group thus ensures guests, owners and investors that what they have at Anya befits a world-class, luxury resort, that is built and finished to the same exacting standards at par with renowned international guidelines.
“EcoPlan is one of the world’s leading Master Planners and is well known for their resort projects with Four Seasons, and Westin, around the world. They have carefully considered the resident and guest privacy and experience in positioning the facilities, homes, rooms and beautiful landscaping,” Anya officials noted.
