A getaway destination: Nuvali Evoliving and Paseo de Sta Rosa

There are lots of new things happening at Sta Rosa, Laguna.  Greenfield – Paseo de Sta Rosa – Nuvali area is turning to a major business, commercial, leisure and entertainment center.  It caters to the growing number of residents from several residential areas in the area, workers and foreign expats from the nearby industrial plants and business offices, and visitors coming from and going to Tagaytay, Batangas, Laguna, Metro Manila and nearby provinces.

Nuvali Evoliving…

Nuvali Evoliving will be developed as a premier business district in the future.

Nuvali Evoliving is about 1,840 hectare in area (according to their website).  It is a business, commercial and residential district being developed by Ayala Land.  It’s development is ongoing and will be transformed into a premiere central business district (similar to that of the Makati central business district) in the future.  The central business district will also include leisure amenities and facilities, parks, biking and walking lanes, and other establishments such as schools, hospitals, restaurants and other services.

As we visited the place, we can see some of the development.  Several commercial establishments, i.e. restaurants and retail shops are present. Starbucks, Old Spaghetti House, Brothers Burger, Yellow Cab, Itallianni’s, and other local restaurants are at the area.   Convergys, one of the largest BPO/call center in the world has also established its operations there.

Paseo De Sta Rosa…

The development at Paseo was initially launched in 1997 by Greenfield Development Corporation.  From then on, several retail stores, dining and entertainment establishments, a graduate school, bookstore, pharmacy and clinics and grocery stores were established.  I am familiar with Paseo since I worked before at the nearby industrial park.

After more than 3 years, I went back at Paseo and saw additional development in the area that include a new area for the wet market, spacious parking lot, open bar and restaurant, a hotel and casino, a hospital, leisure park, and new sites for retail stores, brand outlets and shops.  A transport terminal is also being developed.

Several commercial establishments are present at Paseo for its visitors.

Both Paseo de Sta Rosa and Nuvali Evoliving are becoming popular to people.  So, next time you’re just around this part of Sta. Rosa in Laguna, take time to explore them.

How to go there…

It’s accessible via the South Expressway by taking either the Greenfield or Sta Rosa exits; then take the highway going to Tagaytay City.

For public commuters, there are buses available at Gil Puyat (Buendia) stations in Manila and at Alabang, Muntinlupa going to Sta Rosa/Balibago; upon reaching the Sta Rosa toll exit, alight from the bus and ride a jeepney going to Tagaytay or hire a tricycle at a jeepney stop near the Coca Cola plant and tell the driver to bring you to Paseo de Sta Rosa or Nuvali.

    I moved to Nuvali 2 years ago, I am from Sta Rosa near enchanted Kingdom. All I can say is this place is really nice the exclusivity is really something, security is great and community itself is very promising. 3-5 years from now, this place will surely shine. Though prices of lots and houses here are not for suitable for an average earner. 🙂

  4. 1. When ever we go there do we need to pay entrance fee?
    2. what website can we visit for hotel reservation? or booking.?
