Balesin Island Resort, Philippines

Who wants to get stuck on this island 60 nautical miles east of Manila?

I was in awe looking at Juliette's album in facebook. It featured a stunning tropical island with an architectural design I've never seen anywhere in the Philippines. At first, I had the impression that it must be an island in Bali or Mykonos.

But I soon find out that it is indeed in the Philippines, near Polilio Island in Quezon Province! WOW!
