To: Balesin Members and Friends
This will be short and sweet!
Over the last weekend, we decided to extend, for 3 more months, the “Amazing Airfare” deal. For members and their immediate family, the round-trip airfare will remain at Php 2,000 + VAT per person. For non-members, the round-trip airfare will be Php 5,000 + VAT per person. This new offer will be for another 3 months, or until January 31, 2020.
Just to make sure we are on the same page: for several years before this offer, which we kicked off in August and will end on the 31st of this month, the airfare had been Php 7,000 + VAT per person for members and Php 8,000+ VAT per person for non-members. So as I’m sure you’ll agree, this is quite a good deal!
The other great deal we decided on was to set new rates for weddings and corporate events. For years now, Balesin has been rather pricey for weddings and events. And we have developed a reputation of being an expensive venue.
No longer. With the completion of The Balesin Marquee which can hold up to 600 persons for a banquet setup, and more than a thousand for theater-seated events, and the 52-suite Regency Private Villas, we deliberately compared ourselves with our high-end competitors in Boracay, Mactan, and El Nido.
Taking into account the airfare (even at the new Php5,000+VAT per person non-member rate), and the fact that we throw in about a million pesos of perks and amenities per wedding or event, free of charge, Balesin ends up being Php 1 million to Php 2 million less expensive than the top resorts in each of those 3 destinations.
And this is not just for a 3-month period. This will be the pricing policy for weddings and events going forward.
For those of you who have already booked a wedding or event, or a flight, we will of course adjust the price quoted to you to the new pricing policy or, you may choose to add more attendees to your wedding or event at no extra cost.

Hope you are all happy with this early Christmas present!
