It is interesting that Twin Lakes is described as a “vineyard resort community.” More than just the imagery of living in a calm, lush and bountiful setting where grape vines are able to bear a bumper crop of fruit, those who are spiritually inclined will be aware of the associations that come with the word “vine” and “vineyard.” In religious text, “vine” is a word that is used to signify spiritual good. Taken in that context, the description of Twin Lakes as a vineyard resort community is apt. As a calm and relaxing place where one can set aside the travails of urban living, it is a good place to rest one’s weary bones and revive one’s burdened or ailing spirits.
A Master-Planned Development in Tagaytay
Twin Lakes is a 1,300-hectare propertylocated at Laurel, Batangas along Tagaytay- Nasugbu Road. Set in a picturesque setting with lush, rolling terrains and a view of the famous Taal Lake, it is envisioned to be an integrated tourism estate that will include residential villas, condominiums and townhouses as well as hotel, resort, commercial and retail hubs. With medical, educational, sports and leisure facilities built within the development, it is expected to become an important destination in the locality.
Upon completion, the project shall consist of 15 developments: The Vineyard (includes Residential condominiums, Shopping Village, Hotel and Resort and Chateau Winery ; Domaine Le Montagne ; Domain Le Soliel ; Nature Park , Domaine Le Jardin , Themed Residential Development ,Village Center , Retirement Community , University Park, Plantation, Wellness Center, Lakeshore Town Center, Domaine Du Lac and some future developments. A 15-kilometer road will be built across the estate for the convenience of residents and visitors.
Two Lakes and Real Vineyards
Twin Lakes is a project of Global Estate Resorts, Inc. (GERI) by the country’s leading real estate developer Megaworld Corporation. The development is thus named after two lakes that can be seen or are accessible from the site– Taal Lake and a scenic man-made lake that has been built within the property.
A portion of the land has been set aside for a vineyard where grapes can be successfully grown with help from current advances in agronomy and viticulture. The ambition is to grow grapes that will be suitable for producing authentic Philippine-made wines. Rightfully, the grapes will be grown within a 117-hectare area called ‘The Vineyard.’ But other than the 11 hectares designated for grape vines, The Vineyard will be a mixed-use area which will include a chateau, sports club and spa, residential condominiums and a wedding venue.
For those who want a convenient countryside home that requires minimum upkeep, there is The Vineyard Residences, Twin Lakes’ luxury condominium property which is being built on 1.3 hectares of land. With one to two-bedroom units, the condominium buildings have been fittingly named after wine varietals. There is an 8-storey Merlot, the 7-storey Chardonnay and the 6-storey Shiraz building.
Lifestyle Hubs at The Twin Lakes Estate
The vision is to build themed residential villages that are “seamlessly integrated within expansive areas.” Unlike in crowded urban centers that can tend to be claustrophobic, there is enough space to move and breathe in the fresh, clean air in Twin Lakes without venturing too far away from civilization. When one has had enough for solitary introspection in a natural setting, there are well-designed retail, commercial and civic centers at The Shopping Village and the Lakeshore Town Center. These will
￼host a wide array of restaurants, cafes and retail shops that are suitable for congenial socialization.
Four Excellently Planned Residential Villages
The four residential villages within Twin Lakes are called Domaine Le Jardin, Domaine Le Montagne, Domaine Le Soleil, and Domaine Du Lac.
Domaine Le Jardin is the 76-hectare village that “epitomizes stately living in the greenest of settings. This is Twin Lakes’ firstresidential phase that has prime subdivision lots, botanical gardens and anexclusive amenity and recreation area. Lot sizes at the village range from 250-645 square meters, and the country’s most respected architects including Pablo R. Antonio, JRP Design, Buensalido Architects and SC &A Architects have been commissioned to build model houses.
Domaine Le Montagne, Domaine Le Soleil, and Domaine Du Lac are equally outstanding residential villages that will provide respite from the hectic pace of the big city.
