Balesin Island: The Island of Dreams

(This is just a teaser post)

In one day, what can you do in 20 minutes?

1) Have a nice shower
2) Travel from Makati to Fort Bonifacio Global City (with minimal traffic)
3) A quick lunch break or merienda
4) Apply your beauty products at night
5) Jog
6) Walk your dog in the park
7) There's still more than a dozen reasons I can enumerate here. If I did that though, this list won't end.

What if I were to tell you that you can be in paradise in 20 minutes? I'm sure you would go there, given the right time and opportunity. 

A few years ago, Alphaland decided to build a unique island called Balesin for the most discerning travelers. For some lucky people, paradise has never been closer.

Balesin makes it possible for your tropical dreams to come true. I now call it the Island of Dreams.  I cannot believe an island like this exists in this country. This concept is a first of its kind in the Philippines. Located 21 kilometers southeast of Polillo, Quezon, this 500 hectare tropical paradise is probably the best weekend getaway we have right now. The only setback for most people is that you have to be a member or be the member's guest in order to set foot on this island. If you have extra money to burn for shares, you will definitely not regret it. Balesin is growing bigger and better every year.

Balesin now has 7 themed villages inspired by beach destinations around the world -- Balesin, Bali, Costa del Sol, Mykonos, Phuket and St Tropez. Soon, Balesin will have the Balesin Royal Villa, which will be the grandest of them all. (Click here for the link).

Here are some of the pictures from our trip last weekend. Ill post everything when I find free time. 

The Filipino-inspired Balesin Clubhouse and Village. This has a best views of Lamon Bay.

Bali Village. Inspired by the Salakot or the traditional Asian Farmer's Hat. The Nusa Dua Bar (middle) is also one of the best places here to watch the sunset while you sip your cocktail.

Low Tide.

Costa del Sol. This was our temporary Spanish Casa last weekend.

Phuket Village. 

I am in love with this 25-meter black tiled pool in front of the Salathip.

Toscana Village. The newest village in Balesin. Easily one of my favorites.

Everything was done imppecably.

The Toscana Village has several restaurants that serve the best antipasto and pizza. A must in Balesin,

 St Tropez Village.  A taste of Southern France living.

Mykonos Village

Balesin Spa. 


I will not be surprised if Balesin hits the international market soon. With its utmost privacy, attentive service, excellent food (I need a separate post for this!) and unique theme, Balesin deserves all the praises.

The next thing you have to do now is pretty obvious:

a) Think of a way to save money so you can buy shares (I hear it's more than 3 million now) or
b)  You can find a friend who is already a member and convince him or her to bring you to this island. Goodluck!

See you again, Balesin! You completely blew me away.
