Postcards from Punta Fuego: “Uno”

I was on a weekend get-away to Punta Fuego, Nasugbu, Batangas with good friends John and Benz (with their daughter, Kite). That was their fourth, and my first. Your first should be always exciting so I prepared my number one companion in times like these, my camera with sufficient load of SD cards! (Thx Sistah!)

We left Manila before lunch but because of several ‘very worthy’ stopovers on the way (which will be the subject of my blog in the next few days), we reached Peninsula de Punta Fuego at about 5 p.m., just in time for the sunset which, I was informed, is magnifico, and indeed it was! Here is an image I have picked from my several shots of the ‘Punta Fuego sunset drama’ taken from the Country/Main Club:

Intrigued by what ‘Punta Fuego’ means, I did my (quick) research: Punta means Point, while Fuego means Fire,thus, Punta Fuego literally means Point of Fire! After knowing that, the name made real sense to me because Punta Fuego is described as a “flame-shaped” peninsula with 12-white sand cove beaches.

Peninsula de Punta Fuego is an 88-hectare Spanish-Mediterranian residential beach resort with a Beach Club, a Marina/Yacht Club, a Country/Main Club, a Nine-Hole Golf Course and Casitas where we stayed. Here is a photo of the Casitas where we spent the night:

Aside from the whole place, I personally like the bathroom. It’s simple, high ceiling, wide space and very neat. What made me fell in love with it is the all-mirrored sliding wall (from celing to the ground) on one side overlooking a pocket-peeble garden. I would have liked it more if there were some greens or a tiny ‘koi’ pond on the garden for better ‘nature’ feel. If you notice the protruding wall on the right side of the picture above (partially covered by that short palm), that’s the bath area. The open space is the peeble garden. Don’t be bothered while doing your number 1 or number 2 because the wall is high enough to give you peace of mind and the whole place is very secured. No one would dare climb that wall to see you in your full glory, I’m telling you!    I practically spent the dusk taking pictures of the sunset (you know how quick the sun sets, right?). I am sharing here some personal picks, though I intend to upload some more in the next few days.
