Mabuhay and Welcome to CLUB BALAI ISABEL!

To start with, I listed down Five (5) Reasons why You Should Love Club Balai Isabel and enjoy the time while staying at the resorts.  Images are actually photos taken during my staycation at this place.

Every time you're planning going somewhere, we're thinking of the most convenient accommodation for our Family, Friends, or Barkadas. We do keep asking ourselves.  How much would be the cost or room rates?  What are the inclusions?  Does the venue have rooms that we need, like a Family room?

Here at Club Balai Isabel,  they have a total of 241 rooms with an incredible or overview to the Taal Lake and Volcano.  Family Villas, Condo Units, Condo Shares are available.  However, not all rooms have it.  It depends on where you gonna stay upon confirming your reservations.  

Rooms are available up to 10 persons on Regular Capacity with 8 Allowable extra persons.  Basically, it's ideal for family and or group of people who wants to celebrate occasion/s at Club Balai Isabel.

Club Balai Isabel is also known for its Facilities inside the resort.  They have Swimming Pools, Function Rooms, Spa, Pizzeria / Snack Bar, Restaurant, and among others.

Swimming Pools
Adult and Kiddie Pools are available at the resort.  My Friends and I enjoy swimming more in Kumintang Pool than at the Terraza Pool.  Why? What is the difference?  Oh well,  Terraza Pool is just in front of the Terraza Cafe / Restaurant.  So, just think about it that you're swimming pool area while others are having their meals :)  , then (might) watching you from the Terraza Restaurant.

Terraza Pool (Adult and Kiddie Pool)
Enjoy the view of the Taal Lake and Volcano at the Terraza Pool.  The pool water depth  is 2FT and 5 FT for Kiddie and Adult.  So, better check the water first  before jumping in :)
Kumintang Pool (Kiddie and Adult Pool)
This is the biggest pool in the Club Balai Isabel.  It has up to 7FT for the Adult and 2FT for Kids.  This is the best pool for Jumping and Diving, This pool is shallow both side but 7Ft in the middle.  I don't give it a try to cross the pool as I know I can only do 5 minutes floating only :)

Water is clear and I don't even feel it if there is a chemical (like Chlorine)  mixed into the water.  As we all know, Chlorine helps maintain the cleanliness of the pool!.  So, you can swim under the water and might open your eyes wider as  water is clear.

You can also enjoy Night Swimming:)
Lifeguard?  Yes,  the pool have lifeguards which is a good thing for monitoring and checking guest/s in the swimming pool.  Bath towels are also available.  You can get it to the lifeguard's area.  Don't bring it them to your room.  Leave it there (pool perimeter) instead.

Club Balai Isabel also offers several types of Water Sports Activities which will be held at Lake Taal.  Yes, you read it right :).  You could have Jet ski, Banana Boat Ride, and Kayaking.

My wife  -Aci ( and I enjoyed the paddles but not the water :D.  The water is completely different as compared to the seas.  She was seated port side while I'm occupying the (starboard) supporting her while on kayak.

You can go around and tour the Taal Lake with minimal fees.  Fee for Kayak - Single seat - P150 per hour  |  Double seat - P300 per hour

Kayak is only one of the Water Sports Activities offered at Club Balai Isabel
This is my first time to run a Jetski.  It is easy to operate and hold the steering control.  So basically, we had just operated the Jetski without the Instructor.  He just only gave us some instruction on how to handle it, control, and maneuver the vehicle.  It's like you're only driving a motorbike.

We had so much fun when the rough waves of water crossing to our way as compared to when the water is calm.  But, be safe when driving the jetski.  You know, safety is always your first priority.

Jet skied in the middle of Taal Lake capturing the moment in our lives. 
Fee for the Jetski - P 2,000 for 30 minutes and P 3,500 for an hour

Banana Boat Ride
Banana Boat Ride have a capacity of maximum 10 persons per ride.  This inflatable boat  moves and delivers the thrill by a motorboat.  That thrill, excitement, action, and fun will depend on how the motorboat / speedboat runs on its speed capacity.

You are here at Club Balai Isabel for 1 Good Reason, the "Nature".  Once you're here and "Enter the gates of the resort and you are immediately welcomed into a community and a haven where you can relax, connect, and be with the nature."

Here are the following activities which "a must do while staying" inside the resort.
