The Balesin Experience made more memorable with the FOTON Traveller

The Balesin Island Club is one of the ultimate, luxurious VIP vacation spots in the Philippines. Located in the pristine waters of Lamon Bay, in the quiet town of Pollilio, Quezon Province, the Alpha Land-owned 500-hectare exclusive island boasts of classical and world-class architectures, pristine white sands, and clear waters.

Huddled amid its flora and fauna are villages inspired by different destinations around the world: Bali in Indonesia, Mykonos in Greece, Costa del Sol in Spain, Toscana in Italy, St. Tropez in France, and Phuket in Thailand.

To preserve the ecology and ensure the freshest products for their guests, Balesin grows their own fruits, vegetables, herbs in farms. To reduce its carbon footprint and help protect the environment, they use electric golf carts to go around the island.

To transport guests to their preferred villages and island tours, as well as employees to their various assignments, the island resort relies on the FOTON Traveller passenger van.

The mantra of the Traveller van – A Happy Adventure Awaits – aligns perfectly with that of the Balesin Island Club. Since its launch in 2015, the Traveller has proven to be a reliable vehicle for travel and tours. It offers seating configuration for 16 passengers in ultimate comfort, practicality and space. It is a practical way to shuttle people, and their luggage comfortably around.

The Traveller is powered by a 2.8-liter 16-valve Cummins ISF turbocharged 4-cylinder diesel engine that produces 130 horsepower and 280 Newton-meters of peak torque. Comfort and convenience features include rear air-conditioning, power steering, power windows, and central locking system with keyless entry while safety features include dual airbags, fog lamps, parking sensors, tailgate mirror, anti-lock braking system (ABS) and electronic brake distribution (EBD).


The Traveller’s bucket seat concept provides each passenger with his/her own space with comfortable individual seats while a wide cargo space allows room for luggage and a bubbletop roof allows more headroom. To make the trip more enjoyable, its entertainment system features a USB port, AUX jack, 4 speakers, MP3 and CD player that allows guests to listen to their favorite soundtracks while roaming around the island club.

The Balesin Island Club is definitely a hidden gem when it comes to natural wonders, first-rate amenities and world-class services. The FOTON Traveller passenger van provides exceptional mobility for the guests to make the Balesin experience more relaxing, and most importantly, even more memorable.
