Water and Electrical Power

Balesin Island Club produces an ample supply of water from the rains using our runway as a “catch.” This collected water is distributed to our six water impounding lagoons and treated using our triple-filtration water purification system. Balesin has two desalination plants—one produces 200 cu.m. per day while the other one produces 400 cu.m. fresh water daily.

Water and electrical infrastructure is located underground.

Transformers and adapters are available upon request from housekeeping, in case you need to use any 110-volt appliances.
