A quick tour at one of the most exclusive destinations in the Philippines!
Over the weekend, we were invited to participate in Epson’s annual Fusion event at Balesin Island Club in Polilio, Quezon. Being assigned to cover this event, I made sure that I get to explore the place amidst the hectic (but fun activities) during Fusion IX.
Being a first timer at this exclusive island, it was a must for people like me to go on a tour exploring the different facilities and villages of Balesin. Being a 500-hectare island, the in-island jeeps and vans took care of us in exploring every nook and cranny of the exclusive island.
From the seven villages, I had a good amount of time exploring they Mykonos and Phuket villages during the morning tour and the free time allotted to us (before all the craziness during the Fusion games). If I were to be asked, practically every spot is Instagrammable, and all you have to do is to “strategize” which villages to prioritize for your photoshoots.
While villages like the Toscana, Costa Del Sol, St. Tropez, and Mykonos villages are the popular spots in Balesin, I do think that the Asian villages (namely Phuket, Balesin, and Bali—where we stayed during Fusion 9) are underrated in the sense that their seaside views offer a unique look. The F7’s 16-megapixel F/1.8 rear camera definitely delivers, as it produced detailed shots with good exposure. Safe to say, it is one of the best single rear camera smartphones in the mid-range segment
To cap off our stay on the island, the guys at Epson treated us to a sunset cruise aboard the M/Y Obsession. This chartered yacht toured us around the island while we enjoyed viewing the sunset.
As the clock hit 5:45PM, we were greeted by an unforgettable sunset view.
Three days on the island feels a bit short, but I am nonetheless thankful to Epson for bringing us to Balesin for Fusion 9. We can’t wait what they have in store for Fusion 10 next year!
