Last year, we went to Club Balai Isabel. The place is located in Talisay, Batangas. Batangas is a town in the Philippines known for beaches. However, Talisay, Batangas is far different from the beaches in the other areas of Batangas such as San Juan, Calatagan, etc. Talisay is surrounded by the still waters of Taal Lake.
I am not actually a fan of populated and congested beaches. If I would define vacation, that would be a place where there are less people, quiet and peaceful place to rest and sleep, scenic and breathtaking views, closer to nature, well cooked, healthy and delicious food. These are what I found at Club Balai Isabel.
Here are some of the few pictures at Club Balai Isabel I have captured..
Another view of the Taal Lake from the dining area. Can you see the white boat? That boat can give you a tour to Taal Lake while being served your preferred meals.

Who wants to have breakfast or dinner by the lake?
Sorry for the blurred shot, I forgot to bring my camera here. Club Balai Isabel has two swimming pools and this one of them.
For some unknown reason, I felt something magical and enchanting in this spot. I uttered a prayer and made a silent wish. If it would not be too much to ask, please pray with me that someday that silent wish would come true...
