What: Weekend Getaway at Club Punta Fuego, Nasugbu, Batangas
Punta Fuego, Nasugbu, Batangas, Philippines
A premiere residential beach resort at Nasugbu, Batangas. Managed by Landco and Fuego Hotel and Properties, Punta Fuego is nestled in an 88 hectare flame-shaped peninsula along the coast of Nasugbu, Batangas. The panoramic view of the sky and the pristine beaches with a scenic view of the West Philippine Sea made Punta Fuego one of the sought after beach resort in Nasugbu, Batangas.
There are resorts and cottages of the said resort are for the outside guests, but luckily this time, a company client from Mrs. Wanderlust's office gave us an invitation to be able to spend the weekend on one of the home owner's property. Being treated like owners, and not like the usual guests.
How to get there:
Punta Fuego can be accessed only via private transport, as no public vehicles go directly inside the gated community.
Take the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX), then exit to Tagaytay. Make a right at the Tagaytay Public market and just go straight past Alfonso, Cavite. Turn right at marker 93, going to Balayan Town. This path leads you past the Nasugbu town proper, Munting Buhangin, Terrazas de Punta Fuego and the Ternate-Nasugbu road. Just follow the signs leading to Club Punta Fuego.
The Tagaytay-Nasugbu route, the trip from Manila to Punta Fuego takes approximately two hours.
Where to stay:
There are a lot of places that can accommodate you in the resort, just have to check the net for any deals regarding a stay in one of the casitas or villas of the resort, but just a heads up, it may cost a but higher as it is on the range of luxury resorts.
However for this weekend stay of ours, as have been mentioned we have been invited as one of the guests by one of the property owners, making our stay in a house with our own butlers services.
The house that accommodated us (as seen in the pics above) is a modern Filipino inspired, bungalow-looking beach house, why bungalow-looking? Because on the street outside it looks like one floor house overlooking the beach but when you get in, there are 2 more floors down for the guest's sleeping rooms and even a porch for a better view of the beach, however, the beach front of the houses are just for views because there are huge rocks and would be hard to swim.
The swimming beaches- crescent and long beach is a probably a good 10 minute walk or 3-5 minute drive from the house. Long beach has a better view with its whiter sand and bluer water however, there are too many rules on this beach, no smoking, eating, drinking, loitering blah blah blah, but our group want to setup a picnic, so we went to Crescent Beach instead. The beach has a brown sand to a greenish-brown to blue water, but it was quiet, less people, and not so much rules, so we carried on with our picnic, had a few drinks and chilled out. (Don't worry we always clean as we go).
What to do:
As one would expect, typical beach activities are to be enjoyed in Punta Fuego.
> Swim and water sports at Crescent beach and Long beach
> Swim, relax and hang out at the double infinity pool of the main clubhouse, and enjoy the excellent view of the sunset.
> Have a stroll around to see the luxury beach houses owned by the prominent and ultra rich people with extra money to spare (as property prices the area at the least would be 20 Million Php).
> Go to the Punta Fuego viewpoint and enjoy a nice view of the West Philippine Sea
