I heard a lot about this resort called Club Balai Isabel at Batangas. I even caught a segment on national television featuring the place. The impression is ... nice, it's time to relax. Have some self-pampering package for this season.
We arrived at the place for about two hours travel from Manila. The resort is like an exclusive subdivision from the outside. It has a condotel-type houses, big enough for a family gathering. We got the Lakeside suite for almost 50% off. What a nice perk! Watching Taal Volcano in it's full glory is a bonus (hehe!)
Don't expect a white sand, remember it's a Lake. Mag-tampisaw na lang sa dalawang may kalakihang pool na matatagpuan sa magkahiwalay na bahagi ng resort. They also offered some recreational activities, from beach volleyball to basketball, tennis, badminton and watersports like kayaking, sailing and wakeboarding. Zipline facilities are coming soon.
Clubhouse and lounge are well maintained. Have some spa treatment with the resident therapists or spend sometime for reflection and prayers in the "Spousal of Mary & Joseph Chapel". They also have this Balikatan Obstacle Course which is ideal for a teambuilding activities.
