If Club Punta Fuego cultivates an air of modern sophistication with its cosmopolitan Mediterranean architecture, there’s a quieter and more secluded vibe to Terrazas de Punta Fuego, fifteen minutes away from Club Punta Fuego and designed along Moorish/Spanish lines.
Said quiet and secluded vibe may be attributed to the long and winding road through the forests of the peninsula, where terra cotta Spanish-style houses lie hidden within the rolling hills and dense foliage. The road finally leads down to the Boardwalk, where guests can also relax and unwind and enjoy a wonderful siesta and afternoon snack either at the Café Sol and Juice Bar, or enjoy a deep and relaxing massage from Terraza’s massage therapists. Or they can lounge around the Turtle Pool area with its infinity pools and bubbler pools, or even in one of the 28 open-air furnished casitas built along the cliffside leading to the white sandy beaches below. The beach even affords a great view of the some of the islands dotted around Nasugbu Bay such as Fortune Island or Twin Islands. (Note: talk to Cap, the chief steward of Café Sol. He’s got great stories.)
While Terrazas, like Club Punta Fuego, is driven by resident membership, it is also popular with day tourists who simply want to enjoy a day at the beach with family and friends. All are welcome—just ask the rare pawikan who got a bit lost this past December and laid her eggs beneath one of the casitas. Her babies will be coming back to Terrazas, one day.
