Nuvali lakeside at night

Saw recent pics of a wedding held at The Monochrome Events Place in Nuvali — glad to know it’s finally up and running!

Got to visit that area and spend a few minutes by the Nuvali lakeside sometime in December. Stopped and parked the car because I noticed the well-lit walkway fronting the events place– was happy to see people actually passing there at night.

Two new Lakeside developments in Nuvali

Solenad Nuvali 25Apr2012 (1)

Rode the water taxi in Nuvali for the first time in April 2012, and saw up close two new structures under construction around the lake.

First spotted the Kukun Hotel, one of the many new branches of the Ayala hotel brand.  It’s located right across One Evotech (Convergys).

New structure #2 is the Monochrome Events Place:

On another note, my mom attended a Real Estate conference recently, where an Ayala spokesperson proudly beamed that Nuvali’s original 10-year-plan has been remarkably fast-tracked, now nearing 60% completion.

Good to know that there’s still 40% left to develop, but there is also that worrying tug of “I don’t want progress to end soon!” 😛

Once Ayala’s developer hand exits Nuvali, it will really fall on our shoulders — Nuvali residents and investors — to start the more laborious work of community-building.

Soon to rise in Nuvali: a hotel and an events place

Two exciting developments are coming to Nuvali!

Development#1: Ayala is planning to build a hotel in Nuvali under its boutique hotel brand, Kukun.

I did a quick search ( never fails) and found out Kukun’s first hotel is slated to open in Bonifacio Global City in Q2 of 2012.   Sites for other Kukun hotels in the pipeline (five in total for 2011): Davao, Cagayan de Oro, Quezon City and Alabang.

Another hotel in Nuvali is also planned inside the Republic Wakepark:

Development #2:   Ayala is building an events place next to the lake and commercial district.

Set to open in 2012 — the Events Place is a 2,500 square meter space that’s meant to provide a venue for a wider range of group activities in Nuvali.  Maybe it will be the next best thing to a theater or cinema!  What’s a concert venue equivalent with that size?

On the map you can also see the commercial district called the Lakeside Evozone (lots in orange, aqua, light green and yellow). Further east, new lots will be opened come September (28 new lots in total).   Contact me directly at or 0920-9624116 if you would like updates on these commercial lots.

All in all, I think this whole area– the “entrance” to Nuvali– is becoming  really interesting.  I always see people walking leisurely around the lake, riding the water taxis (I have yet to do this! Last I heard it costs P30 for a ride one-way), or just picnicking on the grass.  It’s a lovely sight and I would definitely love to see more foot traffic in this part of Nuvali.
