Batangas has been a favorite weekend destination because of its proximity to the metro even for corporate getaways. True enough, we spent our company outing in one of its exclusive, posh resorts – Club Punta Fuego.
About Club Punta Fuego
Club Punta Fuego is a premier membership resort beautifully tucked away in Nasugbu, Batangas. It takes its inspiration from Fisher Island in Miami, Florida. The place also aims to combine modern resort vibe with relaxing nature. Club Punta Fuego is consists of the Main Club in Peninsula de Punta Fuego, the Beach Club at Terrazas de Punta Fuego, and the Punta Fuego Yacht Club.
Our group stayed at the Main Club but we were also able to check out the Beach Club at Terrazas de Punta Fuego. Going around from the Main Club to the Beach Club, we saw what seemed like a quiet village with beautiful vacation houses. The two locations were a bit far away from each other but they have a shuttle service that can transfer you in 15 minutes.
Most of us didn’t expect the setup of the place, that you need a shuttle service to go around. We had tight schedule for our team building activities and other amenities the company availed like massage and water sports. For each member of the group, there is an allotted time for the massage and the water activities because not enough resources were available for all of us at the same time. Our coordinator was not previously informed that as we stayed in the Casitas at the Main Club where we will have our massage, the venue for the team building and the water activities was at the fifteen-minute away Beach Club. Fortunately, despite of our schedule didn’t went as planned, we were able to do all our activities.
Indeed, Punta Fuego is one of the beautiful, high-end resorts I’ve seen in Batangas. Some of us were able to stay at the Standard Casita whereas others dwell at the Seaview Casita.
Together with my roommate Joan, I stayed at the Standard Casita. Club Punta Fuego used Spanish-Mediterranean architecture in designing their rooms. I like spacious rooms like their Standard Casita. They also had really comfy beds where we had our amazing massage service.
Club Punta Fuego’s room amenities was superb with provision for the following: air-condition, LCD TV with satellite channels, desk and sofa, spacious bathroom, hot and cold shower, complete toiletries, large cabinets, hair dryer, coffee and tea maker, mini bar, complimentary drinks, and local phone.
I’ve seen a lot of pretty bathrooms and I would say, Club Punta Fuego’s bathroom has one of the unique designs I’ve encountered. The transparent glass wall may be intimidating at first but at day time, the natural light was nice and more importantly, helped saved energy.
Located at the Main Club was the double infinity pool. Unfortunately during our visit, one side of the pool was being renovated. Sadly, this was not communicated to our coordinator. The double infinity pool would have been really fantastic but the sight of the other pool being constructed was such an eyesore.
The infinity pool also had a gorgeous nature backdrop where you can catch a lovely sunset. And just near it was a smaller pool provided for kids.
Aside from the double infinity pool, there was another beautiful pool, the turtle pool at Terrazas de Punta Fuego. It was surrounded by relaxing pool lounge chairs where you can sit prettily while enjoying a wonderful view of the sea and a fabulous sunset.
Club Punta Fuego has beaches both at the Main Club and Terrazas de Punta Fuego. Since we were staying at the Main Club, we checked out its beach first. With a rocky shore, we saw no guests swimming at the area.
The beach at Terrazas de Punta Fuego was a lot better with white, fine sand. Here you can find a lot of visitors not only swimming but doing water activities as well.
On the Table
Aside from the catered food served exclusively for our group, we were able to dine at San Diego and Il Jardineto restaurants.
We had some afternoon snacks at the Jardineto restaurant that really has a chill, outdoor vibe.
The breakfast buffet at San Diego restaurant largely served Filipino food. Overall, food was great.
Our team was grateful to the staff of Club Funta Fuego because even if our socials went so late, they stayed and accommodated our needs (they continuously served food and drinks). Despite all the hassles we had (infinity pool under construction, accommodations too far from team building venue), this amazing treatment of the staff seemed to wipe everything away. It was actually one of the best company socials we had.
- They have provision for team building activities.
- Water Sport Facilities
Club Punta Fuego is your lavish Batangas getaway. They have cozy, modern accommodations while offering nature retreat as well. I really love the sunset we saw during the time we visited. The double infinity pool with warm, soothing waters also has a gorgeous view.
If the double infinity will suffice you, you can choose to stay at the casitas at the Main Club. But if you want to enjoy the beach as well, better stay near Terrazas de Punta Fuego (if this is possible). Aside from the beach, Terrazas de Punta Fuego has a beautiful turtle pool and the Il Jardineto restaurant (team building facility is near here, too).
For non-members, the Main Club accepts reservations on non-peak days exclusively by reservation only (no walk-ins). You may coordinate with Jeffrey Palma with the following contact numbers: (0977) 852-9684, (02) 553-8888 local 19.
