A celebrity-favorite for weddings and vacations, this private, members-only island resort is located at the eastern coast of Luzon.
Heart Evangelista is one of the exclusive club's frequent celebrity guests. Even though the GMA-7 star is scared of flying, she braves the 25-minute plane ride just to unwind at the picturesque seaside villas of Balesin.
Aside from Heart who got married at the resort, Coleen Garcia is also one of Balesin's latest celebrity brides.
Coleen and Billy Crawford exchanged wedding vows on April 20 earlier this year.
While it's not exactly a beach resort, The Farm at San Benito is anorhwe popular getaway destination among celebrities.

With Boracay taking a breather, it was the islands of Siargao that filled in the void.

Lovi Poe was one of the beach beauties spotted at the island.
