The supposed two-hour ride to Punta Fuego took us five hours, which, I must say, was the only taxing thing about our short trip to Batangas. We ate more than we should and tried swimming in an infinity pool for the first time! Apparently, it’s just like any other pool there is.
Since my sister and I live away from home, our family tries to find a weekend when all us can go on a short vacation together. But just like every other impromptu weekend outings, we arrived at the resort quite late. We rode on to sunset and reached Punta Fuego at around dinner time.
Club Punta Fuego covers a wide expanse of land, with large, intricate houses dotting the area. We stayed near the club house, where the restaurant and pools were located. We wanted to try swimming at the beach, but it was too far that we had to ride a shuttle to get there. So we spent an entire Sunday morning swimming at the infinity pool, which wasn’t bad at all. Of course, we also enjoyed the buffet breakfast! We had buffer dinner the previous night, but I preferred the morning meal.
But the lack of traditional Filipino meal makes me sad? There were Filipino viands served, but I prefer tapsilog, tocilog and other silogs over adobo for breakfast. The egg station more than makes up for it, though!
I’ve heard of Punta Fuego a lot of times before. Being one of the exclusive resorts in Luzon, I thought it was a far-fetched dream to visit the club. Good thing a family friend helped us get a discount, so we had a whole weekend to enjoy the views in Nasugbu, Batangas.
I’m not sure when’s our next family trip, but with my sister’s schedule I think our next adventure’s months away! Nevertheless, I enjoy quiet weekends like this one. As much as I want to explore Asia or visit Visayas or Mindanao with them, we have to settle first with short travels, such as dropping by Tagaytay on a Sunday afternoon or staying overnight at a Batangas resort. It’s still fun, though, and spending quality time with each other is what matters.
