I love this place! 128525128525

I've been to many beautiful places like Tagaytay Highlands, Punta Fuego Canyon Cove and many more...Thank God! I love the Nature so much!
My sister celebrated her Birthday here last week...I was happy and excited when she booked online few weeks before September 15.
Unfortunately the Room she booked was only good for 4pax and so they upgraded our stay from a Hotel Room to a Villa.

We were all ecstatic about how big and spacious this Resort is. What's great about it, walkable naman ang pools inside the Resort and they avail of Bicycles for Rent.

The Villa
- I may say that the place is like a small Village. It is surrounded by a Church, Lake, Pools, Hotels, Townhouses and Rooms and this Villas which stands as the Houses of the Village.
It has 2 big Queen sized beds and one double decker and a daybed in the Kitchen that also serves as Sofa at daytime.
May mini Kitchen, and we're allowed to cook, Dining area, Flat TV and Kettle (128556128078🏽 yung sa amin we didn't get to use on the first day kasi may kalawang!) We just changed it to another Villa's Kettle (made of plastic inside when it was vacated...hmp, yung sa amin kasi stainless na may kalawang!) We did inform an attendant when she delivered the Hair blower we requested. 128077
Yung CR, very very nice! May shower heater and they've got clean rooms I must say! The A/C is well functioning, there were three AC's sa buong House that we stayed in.

Church
-Big and Historical looking one. Mukhang old na and nice for picture takings!

Pools
-Big. Huge. Gigantic. Endless. I love it! It's clean, Blue, wide and well maintained. Exterior Benches are available on the side of the Pool area. Near to a Lake (na bawal paliguan, but allows unli picture taking!)
Lahat ng pools nila malalaki especially the one near our Villa. They offer free (yellow) Towels. May Lifeguard na nakabantay. Swimsuits are strictly required. Swimming is allowed till 12MN.

Terraza Cafe
- Niece and I tried the Buko Juice and Calamansi Shake. The view is Magnificent from the seats of the restaurant. This is located beside the 2nd Pool located near the main Entrance and Resort Reception.
The Restaurant on the other side of the dining area offers Fine dining and Buffet when they are fully packed. P500 for Lunch and Dinner according to the waiter that I interviewed. 128077🏽128515

Lake
-Taal Lake in Tagaytay can be seen from this place. It is perfect as a background during a picture taking.
I remember when I visited Taal Lake Yatch Club, it used to feel so humid and hot. But here it is different, it is more fresher because of the energy and oxygen that the Old Trees give.

Overall, I had one of the best vacay experience kahit 24 hours lang kami nag stay. The rent amounted to 10k from 3pm to 12nn the next day. Additional 1,500 per pax is charged. Medyo bitin and expensive pero I think my Family enjoyed it a lot.

Bicycle for Rent

-Php 350 for 1 hour, double Bicycle.
P350 sidecar for 1 hour
P250 for single Bicycle

The overall experience was pretty good. I experienced a great time staying at the huge resort where I blissfully close to nature – the green surroundings, the lake, the beautiful overlooking Taal Lake. Staying at the tree-house for hours just looking at the kids swimming at the Kumintang Pool while others making out their water sports activities were some of the reasons why I love Club Balai Isabel. It was more about giving me more than what I needed and yet, I preferred to do nothing but appreciates simple things. Two thumbs up from me.

This is where family bonding is best spent - enjoy a big room with a loft that can house as many as 12 persons, complete with all household essentials, air-conditioned well, and spacious and cozy enough for some real quality time.

They have complete facilities from Spa service to sports activities. They have:

127936127934🏸courts for basketball, lawn tennis, and badminton, all for free but bring your own rackets and balls.
127921 billiards (for a fee),
128692🏼 they rent out bicycles.
127946🏼 3 fun swimming pools where you can join an aqua dance.
9962️ a chapel that looks old but beautiful
9970️ a small fishpond with a garden and a short wooden bridge
🛬 a helipad in a wide field.
128651 It would also be fun to tour around by riding their coaster for free, especially at night.
127866 They have 2 restaurants inside and a convenient store.
128676 And in the lake, you can avail of their banana boat rides, jetski, etc.

This place is so serene and everyone is just so bright and happy. Families and big group of friends come and enjoy their free time the best way possible. It's in here that bonds get stronger, indeed, especially that their wifi and LTEs are totally not working (it's a good thing).

At night time, just walking around and feeling the cool night breeze while being surrounded by greens and christmas lights (yes) is already enough to cap off a fun-filled day. If you want more, go buy some drink, or coffee, and listen to the live music playing in the resto by the lake. But if still you want to keep it going, maybe a midnight swim is a good idea.

One thing that is totally free, that would calm your very soul and melt your eyes, is the scenic view, of course, of Taal volcano and the lake. Just sit before it and enjoy the view with a good laugh and stories. You can do so many things in this place, just remember to stop, stare, and enjoy.

We had our team building activity at Club Balai Isabel. The place is huge with lots of villas, hotel rooms to choose from. We're a group of 26 and we had this Batangueno hall all for us for our half day activity and well for the rest of our meals too. The facilities we used for our team building are the balikatan camp, basketball court, billiard area and well, the smallest pool was reserved for us for two hours. They are accommodating in general and the staff who's with us from the time we got there to the time we left has been amazing. Very kind and cheery. He worked probably 12+ hours and that was too much!!

They have three pools; one with the view of Taal Volcano, the other is the biggest one with probably more than 7ft deep and the smallest one which we used for our activity. They also have some other water activities like jetski, kayak and alike. An aqua zumba thing is also held at the biggest pool every morning so that's good. You can also rent bikes, play tennis or volleyball or just ride the golf cart when you get tired from walking. Our room was a loft type area that can accommodate up to six people. One single bed with a pull out and two double bed upstairs. With provided towels and toiletries. Basic hangers, refrigerator, and bottled water. With some glasses too and water heater for coffee. Overall the room is clean and the CR is great too. With bidet which is a must! However, not even a single mirror in the room which is frustrating sometimes. Well ventilated too with two aircons and our area is quiet which is what we love after a day of tiring activities.

Our food was catered and everything is filling. However, since they served the food a little early than the time agreed and the food are not heated anymore, something got spoiled and upset our tummy. So that's a huge inconvenience on our end. Most foods were creamy and saucy so maybe that's another thing. But there cook really good meal! I love their pizza by the way. And free flowing coffee! And since you're at Batangas, expect kapeng barako all over!!

So do I suggest having a team building activity here? Uhm, yes why not. Do I recommend going here for a family thing, yeah sure. It's near Manila via SLEX and Star Tollway; you get a good view of Taal and quick dip before summer's really over. So yeah, not bad!

Yey for multiple photos!! 128525128513 Because I couldn't decide on what to post 128514128513

So it was my first time here, and it was okay. The view of taal lake is spectacular.. I spent more time taking photos rather than swimming 128513128514

It just feels like an ordinary neighborhood, its big actually, with lots of villas, suites and apartments.

Well I cant say much about this place, nothing special just the view, I also tried inquiring about their "4 hands massage" but it was no longer available at 9pm 128517

Will I go back? Yes if its for free 128522

Went here last week with girlfriends.
The place is huge. Upon entering, it really looked like a subdivision. Haha We arrived around 11am and waited an hour to check-in. They gave us iced tea as welcome drinks. Their waiting area is airconditioned and wifi is fast. 128077
Upon getting the key to our room, the receptionist also gave me a map and explained where our room is located.
Our room is in Banga villa located near the church. They have a total of 3 pools. 1 near the restaurant, 1 near the basketball court and the other one right beside our villa. The pool next to us is their biggest pool.
Our room is on the 3rd floor, good thing they have an elevator. The room is big with a queen-sized bed and sofa bed with pull-out. The beds were comfy and the pillow were softtttt.. we asked for additional pillows which costs us 50php per pillow.
We went to the swimming pool around 6pm and our spot was in the area with 5-7ft water as all the people were staying in the shallow area. I think it was 5 times the electricity went out! It was scary at first. Hahaha Their pool is open until late night.
This place is really near Taal, it is like within your reach. Staffs were nice and helpful. 128077 They also offer water activities like kayaking, banana boating and jet skiing. If you are not into water activities, you can go biking, go to the church or play basketball. They also have a massage spa!
I think its a peaceful place but when we were there it was not, there were company outings and wellness program during our stay. It was only 6am but there were already loud noises!!!! As in loud! 128545

Went here for our company's planning session for FY16.

They have a big pool in the middle of the place. It looks very inviting. The place is well maintained. Last time I went here was 2-3 years ago (I think) and the facilities remained good. They have a spacious garden where the Team had our activities. Ahhh fresh air!

The rooms has a nice view if the Taal volcano. It has a mini kitchen with a stove, fridge and microwave. It also has a personal veranda where you can relax while watching the sunset/sunrise and drinking a cup of coffee. The toilet is okay but no bathtub.

Thought this was a beach but then, I realized it's within Taal lake so basically, it's a lake. I don't recommend people to swim on the lake. Well, I haven't seen anyone swimming there anyway. The shore was rocky and the water looks scary. Maybe you're just there for the view only but not for the lake/beach.

We've had our summer outing here twice already and yet Club Balai seems to be a lair of endless surprises. You can ditch swimming in the lake but never miss to dip in their pools situated close to the shores for that breathtaking view of Taal. At night, live your romantic fantasy by walking barefoot along the sand under the moonlit through the rythm of the lazy waves. Then, when it's time to hit the bed, dig your skin under the comfort of their sheets in their simple yet cozy pads. Definitely a #classyyetcomfyliving. And oh, do not forget to bring someone special. The place is just too charming to be enjoyed alone.

It was our 1st Year Wedding Anniversary yesterday and hubby planned a simple getaway for us. Typhoon Egay threatened our celebration, but we continued driving till we reach Talisay, Batangas.

By the time we reached Club Balai Isabel, the rain had stopped and we were able to go around the place. Such a huge place and we did not expect that. We should have brought our running gear. Lol! Our room was located at the 3rd level of Mabini Lakefront with 2 balconies (front and side). The front balcony gave us a scenic, up-close and eye-level sight of Taal Volcano. The balcony was spacious, though the room was actually just for two. Our side balcony’s view was the swimming pool in front of the café. Our room was clean and well-maintained. The staff were very friendly, courteous and accommodating as well.

We both enjoyed our short stay and will definitely come back with our family and friends.

The reception of our friend's wedding was held here and boy was it so romantic. They had it on the beach while the wedding was held on the nearby church. Church rules I must say as they don't allow beach weddings anymore for Catholics.

They also got us a room for us to chill and relax while the preparations for the wedding is underway. We went to this place early morning instead of going on the date and time of the wedding for us to relax and have fun with friends with this gorgeous view of Taal Volcano nearby and that cool breeze of the beach. The place is gorgeous and very intimate. You'll definitely have your own private place to enjoy and a common place for food and drinks in their bar. The staff is very warm and accomodating to your needs. The place also has a basketball court in case the guys wants to play ball. They have golf cars to help you get to your place.

The beach is made up of black sand. It's clean and well maintained. You can leave out your slippers and walk barefooted and you won't get hurt with the dry leaves and pieces of stone, shell or wood lying around. Would love to go back here again and enjoy their place more.

I don't know what type of room I got but it was mean! Ina good way, of course. The room was clean and sizeable with kitchen (but i don't know how to cook, so I didn't really have any use for it). I also have two balconies; one facing the pool and the other one towards the lake. Service was great too. Everyone made me feel at home. Napagod ako kakasagot ng "good morning din po".

It's pricey but I did enjoy my stay, especially with an incredible view of the lake.
