The drive down the Tagaytay ridge to Nasugbu is already a fantastic scenic trip along the coast of Batangas as it is, but you’re not truly hit by how amazing the view of the ocean is until you reach Peninsula Punta Fuego and the jewel in its crown, Club Punta Fuego.
Club Punta Fuego is an 88-hectare sprawl of sheer modern Mediterranean-style residential and resort luxury guaranteed to make even a tired and jaded city-dwelling traveler stop and say, “…Oh, wow.” Built on one of the many headlands of the peninsula and sloping gently down the coast, visitors are greeted with a spectacular view of the ocean upon their arrival at the Main Club. (They’re also greeted with a lovely, sweet welcome drink.) While a large area of Club Punta Fuego is dedicated to lavish private residences, the Main Club itself is open to staying guests of the club members and can host many private events.
Visitors to Club Punta Fuego can stay in one of its 33 luxuriously-appointed casitas, some of which can accommodate a family of four, while others can be enjoyed by couples. The Main Club also has excellent first-class amenities as well—chief among them a double infinity pool as well as a dedicated kiddie pool, the tennis courts, the Ylang-Ylang Spa and its highly-trained masseuses tucked away into a secluded casita for maximum privacy, and the San Diego Restaurant and Terrace where guests can experience fine international gourmet dining while watching the spectacular sunset over the clear horizon of the West Philippine Sea.
Club members and their guests also have access to the rolling greens of the 9-hole golf course beside the Main Club, as well as the Upper and Lower Beach Clubs which come with their own function rooms, secluded lounge areas, and Il Jardineto, an Italian-style restaurant for casual al fresco dining. There’s also the Marina, where members berth their yachts and which plays host to a number of boating and sailing activities, like the Punta Fuego Regatta held every year at the end of January.
