Targeting families and friends who want the best of both worlds when it came to the ultimate summer experience, luxury destination Balesin has recently opened its dreamy shores and expanse to the idea of sports and athletics with its San Miguel Sports Camps.

An all-inclusive 5-day/4-night package in one of Balesin’s well-appointed villas, roundtrip airfare to and from Balesin, and breakfast, lunch and dinner for a family of 4 (an additional 5th person is possible), the Sports Camps gives both parents and the kids the ultimate summer getaway. Kids aged 8 to 18 years old will be trained by an all-star roster of expert coaches and instructors for basketball, tennis, baseball, and soccer, and also have plenty of other recreational activities to choose from after their sports camp session for the day—they can try horseback riding, kayaking, paddleboarding, wall climbing, and many more activities available in Balesin Island. While the parents will be treated to a Day of Total Wellness package worth Php 25,000 each at Aegle Wellness Center, a state-of-the-art health hub led by Integrative Medicine pioneers Dr. Benedict Valdecañas and Dr. Ruby Magpantay. The wellness package includes comprehensive blood chemistry workups, physician and nutritionist consultations, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, intravenous therapy, thalassotherapy (offered exclusively at Aegle - Balesin), and of course, massage treatments.


Under Camp Director and International Professional Tennis Registry Coach Marty Ilagan, the coaches will use modern and scientific approaches to athletics, and incorporate character-forming lessons in their programs to help kids become champions in sports and in life.


Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) legends Vince Hizon, Alvin Patrimonio, Johnny Abarrientos, and Willie Miller, plus Jr. NBA Coach Louie Gonzalez will man the basketball camp, while the tennis camp will be led by national team coaches PJ Tierro, Niño Alcantara, Roland Kraut, Karl Santamaria, and Dennis Sta. Cruz.


National Mustang and Bronco coaches Eric Gesmundo and Jhoel Palanog, along with the 2018 University Athletic Association of the Philippines’ (UAAP) Most Valuable Player and star pitcher Kiko Gesmundo, will teach baseball.


Meanwhile, soccer camp instructors will include former Davao Aguilas Football Club head coach Melchor Anzures, and former national team players Loy Fuentebella, “Mr. Football” Elmer Bedia, and LA Bedia.
