Treat the fam to a magical experience at ZOORI

Heading over to Tagaytay with the family?

Then bring the fam over to ZOORI for a truly enjoyable and magical time!

ZOORI (Zoo @ Residence Inn) is a delightful destination in Tagaytay City which provides visitors with unique and memorable experiences.


A special magic show

One of ZOORI’s chief highlights is a magic show performed by the zoo’s own staff, along with some of the resident animals.

In this highly entertaining skit, a fantastical story from the Granny sends kids Alice and Sebastian off to slumber, dreaming of being whisked away Tagaytay Never-Neverland where Lakan Taal and the White Rabbit regale them with various magic tricks such as making coins disappear, transforming flaming wands into spears and and pulling items out of a seemingly empty bag.


Later tricks incorporate the zoo’s animal’s such as rodents, spiders, reptiles, raptors, monkeys and even a huge St. Bernard in an amazing showcase of talents and exciting animal stunts.

Afterwards, brave volunteers among the audience can get really up close and personal with the featured creatures, ably assisted by the trainers and handlers.


The combination of the engaging magic tricks and the exciting appearances of zoo animals against the breathtaking view of Taal Lake make for a highly diverting experience.

Fun animal encounters

Aside from the magic show, the ZOORI also affords guests various areas where they can view and interact with the creatures which makes the zoo their home.

These include:

  • Zoo Grounds which hosts various wild and farm animals ranging from lions, tigers, monkeys , camels, goats and miniature horses.
  • The Aviary where they can view different colorful birds in their enclosure plus even feed them with their own hands.
  • The Serpentarium where they can check out different species of reptiles such as snakes, lizards, iguanas, turtles, and other cold-blooded creatures.
