It is time for some recovery breath for my family so we all decided to have our first out-of town trip in Talisay Batangas. We first thought of having our weekend vacation in a nearby beach resort in Bataan, but since its the start of the Holy Week, reservation was already quite difficult.
My next choice was Tagaytay, which is okay but I am looking forward for a nice weekend with a huge pool and nearby lake or sea front. And I believe we made a right choice of choosing Club Balai Isabel.
Club Balai Isabel in Talisay, Batangas offers comfy accommodations and picturesque views of Taal Lake. It is just an hour’s drive from Manila via the Sta. Rosa-Tagaytay route or Calamba Star Tollway. The Sta Rosa Tagaytay road is really stiff and dangerous for a night travel and It is recommended to have a good car engine and tires condition to drive that hilly-winding road.
Its for everyone to visit. The site picturesque setting makes it a popular wedding and pre-nuptial photoshoot destination, while the spacious grounds and room capacity of up to 800 persons make it ideal for corporate events. Environmental enthusiasts find the resort fascinating as it is the best jump-off point to reach the volcano, aside from the fact that the resort itself is bursting with vegetation.
The fact that there is always something for everyone is what makes Club Balai Isabel so attractive. Those craving a sedate and secluded reprieve may find it under the trees and the spacious grounds where one can find a quite space to call their own. Those who would like to have an exciting adventure can take part in our water sports activities such as wakeboarding and kayaking or trek to the volcano.
Families can enjoy the swimming facilities and rent a house for themselves, while corporate clients can take advantage of the obstacle course and the media-ready function rooms.
Accommodations: There is a quite number of room choices depending on your preferred location and budget. We are about 7 person and we choose the Lake Shore Lane Suite fronting the Taal Volcano. The room price is from Php5,000 (suites) to Php25,000 (villa with own pool), but its fully furnished and you can bring your own food and cook. It has grill areas and the public market is only 10 minutes drive.
It’s worth our time and money. The family bonding matters most, and the place adds a memory for us to remember Club Balai Isabel
