Seven Countries, One Island! Best Bet: Balesin Island Club


Can you believe that this 500 hectare tropical paradise is just a quick 25 minute plane ride from Manila? That's half the size of the whole Boracay island...Yup!  this amazing development is called the Balesin Island Club. It is for members only so let us take you on a mini tour of this piece of heaven.


The island introduces “Seven countries in one island” with its themed villages—Bali (Indonesia), Phuket (Thailand), Balesin (Philippines), Mykonos (Greece), St. Tropez (France), Costa del Sol (Spain), and Toscana (Italy)—designed to look, taste, and feel like the real thing with everything from the architecture, interior design, landscaping to food impressively recreated.





The island offers all resort activities imaginable, trekking or jogging through the forest, fishing, and horseback riding. Enjoy an active vacation with the Club's numerous sports, beach, and lifestyle amenities such as covered tennis courts, basketball courts, and horseback trails; book a session at the Zen - inspired spa suites; enjoy the different culinary offerings at any of Balesin Island Club's many restaurants; or just chill out and enjoy nature, the spectacular views, and the majesty of the Pacific Ocean. If you're more of a water sports enthusiast, go snorkeling, hobie cat sailing, waterskiing, wind surfing, you name it.


Just check out these amazing views:
