When in Balesin, you can never run out of things to see and do. Aside from the 7 themed villages, Balesin also features numerous attractions and activities suited for both young and young at heart all located within the confines of the 500 hectare island.

It’s More Fun in Balesin 3: Around the World in One Island

As I have mentioned in my previous post here, there are 7 themed villages in Balesin Island Club inspired by the best beach destinations around the world namely Balesin (Philippines), Bali (Indonesia), Costa Del Sol (Spain), Mykonos (Greece), St. Tropez (France), Toscana (Italy) and Phuket (Thailand). Each village was created as a resort on its own and built to be reminiscent of its name. The attention to detail they put in the design of each village from the architecture, to the interiors and to the landscaping transports you to another part of this world in a matter of minutes..successfully at that. Balesin Island Club’s themed village concept is the first of it’s kind here in the Philippines as far as I know and it is one of the best and most beautiful luxury resorts I have been to in my life. Here’s my photo diary of our village hopping tour at Balesin Island Club. ❤


“Conveniently located near the Clubhouse, Spa & Aquatic Sports Center, the Balesin Village is your home away from home. Take pleasure in the 40 villas which feature the best of Philippine indigenous architecture, craft and design coupled with a modern twist. Enjoy sampling exquisite Filipino cuisine at the Sala while luxurious white sand beach provides the perfect setting for a leisurely stroll” (Source)
