Punta Fuego's Alluring Beauty

After the hurdles of month's activities, PinoyExplorer found time to visit the most lucrative private paradise of Nasugbu, Batangas by a special invitation courtesy of IBM Philippines. I joined the BPO Booth Camp conducted in this famous 88-hectare flame shape exclusive residential resort called Peninsula de Punta Fuego ("point of fire") .

This is my first time to visit the place. I only browsed on it through glossy travel magazines. My
contemporaries, Lito and I in IT was billeted in the luxurious Casitas Villas that were surrounded by lush gardens which is accessible to the golf course and country club. The room assigned to us was very cozy similar with any other five-star hotel in Metropolis with its amenities and security features centralized using a magnetic card key.

After the seminar, we were treated conveniently like kings exclusively in Marina Bar, where we had fun till dusk. We enjoyed an open bar where we filled our stomach with food and drinks. A karaoke-for-fun competition was also initiated by IBM executives where they have raffle off some prizes and gave away iPod shuffle. Unfortunately, my name was not called again but at least I was given an exhilarating experience for free to ride in Banana boat and Jetski.

The following day, I set my camera on for possible tour around the vicinity. The beauty of its place should not escape my lenses. I was really thankful for the fine weather, we were able to visit major spots of the resort. The place was really big enough that we need to be toured with a shuttle service to pick up and drop us anywhere inside the resort. I have visited the Fuego Point where you can view the point where the historical Spanish Galleon San Diego and the Dutch battleship Mauritius fought on December 14, 1600. The exclusive private residence are truly amazing as you
can feel the fresh air and seaside view.

The Country Club which is located atop a cliff overlooking Sunset Cove is the center of dining, entertainment, sports and social life. There's a ballroom, mini-theater and other shops. It is also home for the spa, tennis and squash courts, numerous function halls and coffee shop. And lastly, its centerpiece is the famous two-level infinity pool overlooking the South China Sea and its magnificent sunsets.

If you are an adventurer, you can visit the Lower Beach Club. It is the center of swimming, snorkeling and family beach activities where a lagoon, garden, al fresco dining, showers and aqua sports facilities, jetski or banana boat riding. One would definitely enjoy the Long Beach, one of Peninsula's favored beach destinations.

To all executives who love to play golf, the center of the peninsula has Par 29, Nelson-Haworth-designed nine-hole golf course that are completely surrounded by the waters of the South China Sea.

Well, this is another place that is worth to visit
especially for a family who dreamed for a very private
place to relax and enjoy facility. Security is also so
strict but necessary if you want to have peace of mind. Staffs are courteous and friendly and can
accommodate you anytime you need them. Sad to say that this is a very private resort where only executive membership and member's guest are allowed.

About: Developed by Landco Pacific Corporation and Roxaco Land Corporation in 1997 and was fully operational in 1999, Punta Fuego is one of only three land masses jutting out of the coastline of Nasugbu into the South China Sea.
