Ayala Land’s largest eco-city development promises to be the staycation choice this holiday season, bringing in entertainment and recreation options in an environmentally conscious wonderland. For the tired masses hassled by the usual holiday rush, relaxing activities in the open spaces and fresh air of Nuvali may be needed.
Shopping is a carefree, leisurely experience at Solenad, Nuvali’s sprawling Ayala Malls concept featuring a wide array of retail and dining options. Solenad started with 14 stores, which stretches out to Nuvali’s iconic 4-hectare lake for a refreshing al fresco lakeside experience. Over at the second and third wing of Solenad offer an extensive array of shopping options, unique restaurant concepts, a supermarket, service-oriented stores, an activity park plus the highly anticipated and newly-opened Solenad Cinemas.
Christmas markets are being held every day until December 30 in Solenad. For young fans of Peppa Pig and her pals, Peppa’s Christmas Surprise will be showcased from December 18 to 20. Families can also discover the country’s diverse marine life with AGOS (A Glass of the Sea), an interactive and educational exhibit created by the Mind Museum, featured at the Evoliving Center until end December.
For some hard-to-find, large-scale shopping, one can head over to the only name to trust in bulk buying. S&R Membership Shopping has opened a 12,000-sqm. center in the area for those big party needs. Everything from great groceries, homeware, small appliances and more can be found here.
Once you’ve ticked everyone off your list, a little me time enjoying Mother Nature is a must-try experience in Nuvali. Get your running shoes out or guide the kids through their first bike ride. Feel the wind on a water taxi ride. Nuvali has got to be the best place south of the metro to enjoy these activities. Other outdoor recreation can be had at Nuvali’s Wildlife and Bird Sanctuary, demo farm Greens & Patches, sports fields and Republ1c Wakepark.
As big sports and recreational events like the annual Dirt Weekend have proven, Nuvali is one of the best places to enjoy the outdoors.
Downtime from all the exciting activity can be enjoyed at Seda, Nuvali’s 150-room hotel located steps away from the restaurants and shops at Solenad, office buildings One and Two Evotech and the lakeside attractions. It has all-day dining at Misto, a gym, a pool and game room. There are also meeting and function rooms for all those business and social gatherings.
Spanning the cities of Sta. Rosa, Cabuyao and Calamba in Laguna, Nuvali has long practiced sustainability initiatives as the key to a balanced work and leisure lifestyle. Now it presents those ecologically sound leisure features complete with residential, educational, commercial and institutional developments.
Four Ayala Land residential brands are well represented in this eco-city: Ayala Land Premier, Alveo, Avida and Amaia Land. Offices and commercial businesses are properly clustered in a campus-type setting. Schools within the area include Xavier School and Miriam College Nuvali.
“Nuvali was envisioned as a harmonious and creative space where a lifestyle of responsibility and sustainability is well-balanced. Nuvali commits to this vision by integrating a mix of land uses and showcasing it through Ayala Land’s expertise in revolutionary sustainable development that allows for economic prosperity, community-building, and flourishing lives within an ecologically-sound environment,” said John Estacio, Nuvali General Manager.
Nuvali is rapidly growing into a power district for business and lifestyle in the CALABARZON region. Aside from the numerous institutions and residences rising, a new QualiMed Hospital will soon be up and running. QualiMed Hospital will feature 100 beds and is expected to open next year.
It will be another feather in the cap of a progressive community. For the few who have not ventured into this evergreen property, this holiday season may be the best reason to visit or make memories going into the new year. Nuvali, a community that allows a refreshing lifestyle worth exploring in any season. ADVT.
