This resort is actually for exclusive use of members but perhaps due to the global economic downturn, they've decided to open up to the public. As you enter the grounds, the road to the beach is lined with stylish and luxurious mansions with terrific views of the sea. These are private residences however and there are no public lodgings here; if you wish to spend the night nearby you'd have to go to another enclave 15 mins. further down the national road.
The beach is clean, unrocky and with near-white sand. There are cabanas around the infinity pool as well as on the beachfront, a restaurant (though the food is not that great), locker and shower rooms.

We were invited for a tripping at Pico de Loro to check out the ongoing construction of condo units and the Beach & Country Club. Not to be confused with Mt. Pico de Loro,a favorite of mountaineers, the Pico de Loro we went to was one of the 13 coves of white sand beaches of Hamilo Coast,envisioned to be an exclusive premier residential coastal destination in Nasugbu,Batangas. It boasts of clear waters,fine white sand and lush greens. Future residents of this exclusive property can go to Metro Manila via ferry that will dock at the Seaside Port of SM Mall of Asia.

Caleruega is a House of Prayer where groups, mostly students go for retreats or recollection. The Chapel of Transfiguration inside the compound is a favorite wedding site, and the mini-forest park and gardens is becoming a popular choice for pre-nup pictorials. Communing with God and nature at Caleruega will reinvigorate your soul and body.

The cool climate of Mt. Batulao is a pleasant escape from the tropics. The moment you alight from the bus (Erjohn Bus) at the gate of Evercrest Golf Course – the jumpoff – you will feel the same coolness felt by the visitors of Tagaytay. And this temperature will be with you all the way. Batulao is the only mountain in Batangas where you can wear jackets at high noon. Thanks for the cool wind of Tagaytay! The trail is characterized by rolling hills covered mostly by cogon grass. There is no tree cover throughout the climb. On sunny days, this paradoxical blending of heat and cold, on dramatic, sometimes steep landscapes, with forceful winds that make the cogon grass dance, forming beautiful waveforms across the slopes, earns for Batulao the distinction of being the most spectacular of the mountains in Batangas.
At the peak, the rocky landscapes climax into beautiful formations. Set in the backdrop of the plains of Cavite and Batangas, the photos are excellent. Views include the peninsula of Calatagan (SE), the coastline of Nasugbu (W), Mt. Talamitam and Pico de Loro (WNW), the mountains of Maragondon, Cavite (N), the Tagaytay highlands (ENE), Taal Lake (E), behind it, Mt. Maculot (ESE), and the vast Balayan Bay (S). Here the breezes that menaced the assault are now a refreshment.

Caleruega is a Dominican-owned spiritual retreat center far from the hustle and bustle of the city. Located in Brgy. Kaylaway in the highlands of Nasugbu, it has fantastic views of Mt. Batulao and the green rolling hills of Tuy and Nasugbu, Batangas. Its small chapel on the top of the hilly property is a favorite wedding venue. If you're a bride with a passion for the dramatic and romantic, start your wedding march from the fountain rotunda at the gate, hiking up a nice garden path for about a hundred meters, and arrive breathless (literally) to the chapel door which will be opened accompanied with the release of butterflies cunningly hidden by wedding coordinators in some corner somewhere. (That's what my sister did! Made good footage.) The groom and his crew have it easy; they simply wait at the altar.

Caleruega is not only known for hosting retreats and recolllecions. It also provides the venue where students/employees can camp on its rolling hills for team building. The panoramic view of Batulao Range, the beautiful lush greens and colorful flowers, the awesome skylight, and the quiet surroundings make Caleruega a perfect place.

You're in Nasugbu so have a dip in the beach or have a henna tatoo or tan. How about Jet Ski or Parasail or Banana Boat. Snorkelling, Sciba Diving, etc. Ok I admit it's not Boracay or Palawan but still it's a beach so you can still do any beach activity here.

Chateau Royale Resort in the Upper Part of Nasugbu Town near the border of Cavite Province is a good area for group activities. In the Complex, they offer paintball for group fun and we did paint ball for the heck of it. You pay 300 pesos a game plus 200 pesos for 20 pieces of paint bullets. The Objective is to capture the enemy flag or annihilate the enemy enmasse! in this activity, my team won!

I've been to Caleruega so many times. Barbie a.k.a. barbie_sunrise and Emkei a.k.a. missmarianne have also been to Caleruega...but we went together for bonding moments at Caleruega. We strolled in the gardens up to the hill beyond the hanging bridge until we discovered the new chapel being constructed. We had fun practicing photography and spent the rest of the time exchanging stories. We also bought a lot of tropical fruits like green mangoes, avocados and a banana variety called "arnibal".
(Note: More pictures in my travelogue.)
