SPLENDID BREAK


Club Punta Fuego combines natural scenery and first class recreation facilities for an exquisite vacation.

Club Punta Fuego in Nasugbu, Batangas is truly a five-star relaxation enclave. Offering such fine leisure and comfort, this lavish and exclusive vacation place is probably where you can actually have your cake and eat it too.

The choice membership resort makes for an excellent retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life, as it is just a 2.5-hour drive from Manila and—because it is situated on a peninsula that protrudes to the west—features a lot of relaxing scenery, from two-sided coastal panoramas and lovely sunsets, to island-lined seascapes and jagged cliffs that drop to charming beaches.

Inspired by Fisher Island in Miami, Florida, Club Punta Fuego blends contemporary esthetics with natural beauty. The resort’s 49 rooms and casitas are all reflective of Spanish-Mediterranean architecture, with the intermingling of the indoors and outdoors extending to its on-site facilities.

Pleasant Repose

Designed to strike a perfect balance between spectacular structures and the surrounding landscape, Club Punta Fuego’s rooms and casitas coddles the mind with pleasant visuals from sunup to sundown. From terraces and balconies, colorful pocket gardens, the view of the sea, and the sound of the waves combine as an irresistible chorus, coercing guests to simply let go of stress and laze around. Meanwhile, the plush beds, gently flowing drapes, light-colored walls, huge windows and generous free-flowing space help make the laid back experience transcend to cloud nine level.

Staying here somewhat defines vacationing in a place that is the epitome of luxury. Club Punta Fuego, for instance, has beautifully designed infinity pools accenting magnificent horizons, so that one can immerse for hours in, and then realize this is how it’s like to binge on “the good life”. Moreover, the resort’s classy Ylang-Ylang Spa wholly refreshes and rejuvenates with an array of exclusive treatments that utilize the marvels of holistic arts and nature’s age-old secrets to wellness. It is, in the deepest sense, restful bliss packaged in luxury.

Top-grade Facilities

To unwind, however, doesn’t necessarily mean constraining one’s options to resting on a giant bed, a poolside lounge chair or a massage table. Indulging in recreation, health experts say, can also relieve work-related tension. And for such recreational activities, Club Punta Fuego offers an extravagance of choices.

A private beach provides a rather exclusive place to sunbathe, or a safer moonlight stroll by the shore. Water sports facilities—for water skiing, jet skiing, banana boating, snorkeling, wakeboarding and kayaking—are accessible in a snap. The tennis and indoor squash courts, game room, pool tables, dart boards, fitness center, mini-theater, kiddie pools and playgrounds are all provided in deluxe mode. And there is, of course, the Punta Fuego Golf Club nearby, a nine-hole executive golf course amidst lush foliage and the azure waters of the Nasugbu coast.

The dining experience at Club Punta Fuego is conveniently enhanced by picturesque sunsets and ocean vistas, but is also refined with options. Guests can enjoy exquisite dining at the resort’s San Diego Restaurant, the Il Jardineto Restaurant, or at the Member’s Lounge, each of these venues features an impressive combination of ambience, service, and food, plus an impressive collection of world-renowned wines. These three restaurants provide the span of preference for guests, as one is best for savoring a generous buffet spread, another for trying out creative signature dishes, and another for cocktails and bar chow. However, Club Punta Fuego designed the service dynamics of the resort to really spoil the guests, so that if you want a cocktail from here and a dish from there, it will be simple. If you want an al fresco lunch, a drink by the pool, or a sandwich on a jet-ski, orders are met with the least complication.

Should the need to tend to some business arise while you’re on vacation, there is the Business Center. Open daily, the business center is complete with unlimited Internet connectivity, computer facilities, IDD calls, fax and printing services, and even a place for corporate meetings. The San Ambrosio, San Bartolome, San Carlos, and Upper Beach function rooms are customizable for small or big events, and can be customized for corporate meetings, planning sessions, or even company parties. What’s terrific about it is that club membership is not required to book any of the function rooms.

The resort’s banquet facilities can serve a great party, and a chapel/shrine also allow for the most romantic of weddings to happen in this enchanting place, against a scenic backdrop and in between the caressing strokes of sea breeze.

Furthermore, an on-site shop, lots of parking space, a shuttle service, bike rental, currency exchange, baggage storage and a 24-hour front desk complete the 5-star convenience offered by this super vacation place.

Club Punta Fuego is at Barangay Balaytigue, Nasugbu, Batangas. For more information, call: +63-02-8438700 or +63-02-5844405. Or email: info@clubpuntafuego.com.ph
