From the south of France I now take you to Thailand on my visual tour of Balesin Island Club a resort in the province of Quezon in the Philippines. The 500 hectare tropical paradise is made up of 7 different villages each with it’s own villas, restaurants and pools.
As with the other villages there was a main clubhouse that served as a restaurant and lounge.
The villa in Phuket was smaller than the ones in Balesin and Bali (coming soon). It didn’t have an outdoor whirpool tub.
The room’s lay-out was the same with Balesin Village.
We had our last meal at their restaurant while being serenaded by the trio who belted out 70s tunes from VST & Co. and The Hotdogs.
This gorgeous table was made out of a single slab of wood.
I only liked the iced tea, catfish salad and bagoong rice.
They ran out of pandan so we were served a naked chicken instead.
The rice in pineapple looked pretty but it was tasteless.
The roast duck was tough and tasted old. We left this dish mostly untouched.
This is the club’s sports center. Obviously I didn’t go inside. 😀
For those inclined to move while on vacation you will not run out of activities. Personally my idea of a vacation in paradise is lounging by the beach or pool with a good book and a cold drink with an umbrella.
