Structured on a system that encourages modern, responsible living supported by a belief in maintaining balance between development and nature, NUVALI’s framework allows each individual the space for a well-enhanced sense of oneness with the natural environment and its bounties.” – http://nuvali.ph
Even before Nuvali opened to the public, this has always been their principle. I was one of the lucky few who got invited back in 2010 to witness everything Nuvali has to offer and as the years passed by, I make it a point to visit the place once in a while because aside from Sta. Rosa being near where I live, Nuvali is just really a fun place to be whether you’re alone, with your significant other or with your family.

Now, let’s go to the top 8 things you can do in Nuvali:
1. Explore Ayala Malls Solenad
Compared to Ayala Malls Serin in Tagaytay, Solenad is huge! Its hallways are wide, each floor has an elevator, parking lot is spacious and there are several resting places and mini parks you can enjoy. It houses a lot of food establishments and boutiques, as well as a branch of Robinson’s Supermarket.
2. Dine at Nuvali
There are several food places in Nuvali. I’d love to try everything! So far, I’ve only been to Starbucks when it first opened, Uncle Cheffy as well as Kanin Get It …
This time around, since we were already inside Solenad and I was craving for yummy Filipino dishes, we ended up having our lunch at Seafood Island, a favorite of ours because aside from serving delicious Filipino dishes, the meals are fairly priced.
Like for this Boracay Feast boodle we ordered, it just cost P735 good for us 4 adults and 2 kids.
3. Shop at Nuvali
There are so many things you can buy inside Nuvali. Aside from the usual brands, there’s usually a mini bazaar going on in various locations of Nuvali. That particular Saturday, we were in need of Halloween costumes for the kids so we looked for Toys R us located inside Ayala Malls Solenad.
4. Have a picnic
Nuvali is known for its huge open fields and parks. We saw a lot of families in there setting up picnic mats on grassy places and enjoying their time with their family and loved ones. As for us, since we were there for the Night Sky Cinema later that afternoon, which is basically an open field picnic + movie watching, we headed straight to the lake.
5. Fish Feeding by the Lake
There are so many koi at the lake! And because a small bag of fish food is only P15.00, you will always find people feeding fish in there. They’re so mesmerizing to look at!
6. Enjoy a Boat Ride!
Since we were already by the lake, we fancied a boat ride. At P40.00 per head (kids 4 years an below are free), we were able to have this exciting boat ride by the lake.
We thought it was going to be a peaceful ride but I guess the captain saw how enthusiastic we were so he went ahead and increased the speed as if we were on a race! Watch the video below… Woooohoooo!
7. Watch the sunset by the lake
Need I say more?
8. Other things to do
There are still so many things to do in Nuvali which we plan to accomplish on our next set of visits like wake boarding, bird watching, off-road biking and to experience Camp N.
