After our wonderful brunch at Breakfast at Antonio’s we went to Hamilo Coast to drop off the kids who stayed overnight.
This is my last post in the series about Balesin Island Club. Bali Village is actually the 6th of 7 villages in the exclusive members only resort in Quezon province in the Philippines. Toscana Village is still being built.
If you’ve been following my series on Balesin Island Club, a members only resort in the Philippines, then you’ve seen my journey that seemed to be around the world when in reality I was just in an island paradise.

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.
Most of the villages in Balesin Island Club feature single detached villas and you will need to walk or take a golf buggy to go to the restaurant. St. Tropez village is set up just like a boutique hotel with everything you need in one building.
The best thing about Balesin Island Club is that a few minutes on a golf buggy and you are transported into another country. No detail is too small when they designed each village that sometimes I forget that I’m even in the Philippines.

I took almost a thousand pictures during my 3 day stay at the island and I will try to show you in detail what paradise in the Philippines looksContinue reading “Balesin Island Club – Balesin Village”

A couple of weeks ago I received a text from my friend who was on vacation, “Want to come to Cebu?” Within in a few hours of her text I booked my flight and flew off the next day. If that wasn’t impulsive I don’t know what is. Cebu City is only 1 hour andContinue reading “Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa”
