One of the major come-ons of Nuvali for me has always been the man-made lake.
When I first heard about it in 2007, I immediately had a vision of our very own lakeside/ mini-waterfront promenade in the Philippines, similar to Singapore’s Harbour Front/Vivo City.
Forward to 2012, less than 5 years hence, and the lake is still the first thing that catches my eye every time I enter Nuvali.
It now occupies 4 hectares, which is admittedly smaller than what I had hoped for (original plan set it at 8 hectares), but the view, especially when taken in with Mt. Makiling in the background, is stilling.
Even without thinking about it, I always slow down whenever I drive along this area.
It’s not surprising that others have discovered this quieting spot as well, making weekend picnickers a regular sight around the lake.
I got to really walk around the Nuvali lake for the first time during the Venare Section J launch last Sunday, and was happy to take in the fresh air (fresh talaga! It was cold and thin, almost wispy–as opposed to being thick and heavy).
The tented area shows where the Shalani-Roman wedding reception was held earlier this year.
Think five, ten, twenty years from now, what do you see surrounding this lake?
