To celebrate its 80th anniversary, Taal Vista Hotel recently held an exclusive intimate luncheon at the hotel’s Taza Fresh Table restaurant with SM Hotels and Conventions Corp (SMCC) top executives, including president Elizabeth T. Sy, executive vice president Peggy Angeles, and Taal Vista Hotel’s management headed by general manager Richard Gamlin. Various media personalities and corporate partners of the hotel were also in attendance.

“The celebration of the 80th annoversary of Taal Vista Hotel is another significant milestone that further reinforces SMHCC’s robust growth,” SM Hotel’s executive vice president Peggy Angeles said. “Taal Vista Hotel is just one of the many power brands under SMHCC’s increasing number of properties.”

Educator and former CCP president Nestor Jardin directed the art deco-themed “As Time Goes By” luncheon celebration. It started with welcome remarks by GM Gamlin highlighting Taal Vista Hotel’s contribution and significance in the tourism industry as one of the pioneering hotels in the country and the very first in Tagaytay City.


Taal Vista Hotel is indeed one of the grand dames of the Philippine tourism industry. Its long history is as colorful as that of Tagaytay, shaped by the geography of the place and the political history of the region. The hotel held a special place in the heart of the late Henry Sy Sr., who used to visit Taal Vista Lodge and sit on the ridge overlooking the lake. When the Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) put the hotel on the block, Sy made a substantial offer and acquired the hotel through SM Investments Corp. (SMIC).
