With our fast-paced lifestyle these days, more and more people are looking to get away to a short yet relaxing weekend getaway.
Fortunately, a two-hour drive from the Makati business district lie three property developments that cater to their needs: Ponderosa Leisure Farms, Peninsula de Punta Fuego and Terrazas de Punta Fuego. Developed by Landco Pacific Corporation, they typify leisurely living.
A pioneer in leisure community development, Landco’s developments have revolutionized the Filipino lifestyle.
“Our vision is to provide lifestyle and experiences that break the mold,” said Landco president Alby Xeres-Burgos.
A key to realizing its goal is understanding that people define leisure in different ways. Landco applies that understanding to its developments so that every customer’s need is met.
Ponderosa Leisure Farms
For those who find relaxation in gardening, a one-hour drive on the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) takes you to Ponderosa Leisure Farms.
The second of Landco’s two leisure farms, it is a residential flower garden community tucked in nicely over 53 ha of gently rolling terrain that enjoys the cool winds of Tagaytay in Silang, Cavite.
It is a one-of-a-kind garden community with resort amenities such as a clubhouse with pool, playground and al fresco dining.
Besides the Villa Ponderosa Clubhouse, residents can enjoy communing with nature in pocket gardens such as El Refugio Meditation Garden. Families can enjoy picnics at the Campo Verde Campsite.
Like its sister development in Lemery, Batangas, Ponderosa Leisure Farms offers its residents maintenance and care services for hassle-free gardening.
Peninsula de Punta Fuego
Spread over 88 ha, Peninsula de Punta Fuego is a seaside residential resort in Nasugbu, Batangas. It has become one of the country’s premier residential/resort destinations.
Inspired by Fisher Island in Miami, Peninsula de Punta Fuego has everything anyone might want in a resort residence. Those who have been to South Florida will notice the similarity in lifestyle where residents and guests can slow down and enjoy a more leisurely lifestyle in a warm lazy sun.
Boasting a huge country club with world-class amenities, Club Punta Fuego includes a boutique hotel composed of 33 casitas and a nine-hole executive golf course just a stone’s throw away from the main clubhouse. Walking the course, especially late in the afternoon, will afford one some of the most majestic views in the area.
For those preferring a more rigorous activity, there are championship tennis and squash courts. For the romantics, there’s a magnificent dual-layered infinity-edge pool overlooking Sunset Cove, where couples can enjoy a nice afternoon swim while watching the sun set over the South China Sea.
There are also two beaches in private coves for beach lovers and a yacht club for boat-owning residents. The club hosts an international regatta every year, where many of the residents participate.
Terrazas de Punta Fuego
A short 20-minute drive from Peninsula de Punta Fuego, Terrazas is a luxury condominium that provides a wonderful scenic view of the South China Sea and the Batangas mountain range.
The location has everything a small family might want in an ocean-front residence.
A beach club, at the foot of the condominium, has access to the best beach in the area with 800 m of fine white sand.
Parents can enjoy the day getting a massage in one of the 18 cabanas that line the beach or hang out in the juice bar. Kids can play either on the sand or in the large child-friendly pool.
For the very active, the beach club offers a variety of water sports, from water skiing to banana boat and jet ski. Those who want to mix fun and adventure may try the “Sunset Booze,” a short ride on an inflatable raft pulled by one of the many speedboats. Guests are taken to Sunset Cove where they watch the sunset while enjoying specially prepared snacks and a glass of wine.
In Ponderosa, another phase will open soon, while in Terrazas de Punta Fuego, two expansion developments are under way. The Ridge and the Peak will give residents a different experience yet give them access to the luxurious lifestyle of Punta Fuego. It was at the Peak, with the breathtaking vista, that celeb couple Regine Velasguez and Ogie Alcasid said their “I dos.”
