The Farm At San Benito indeed lives up to its world - class service with their excellent holistic programs and signature treatments. My husband booked two rooms - narra villa for us and palmera suite for the kids.The sound of cicadas in the morning, naturally heated pools in the narra villa plus a view of nature, it is a an amazing wellness experience! Do not leave The Farm without trying any of their signature treatments. From the organic vegan food to natural coconut salt scrub to shampoo, we love every bit of it. I hope they would consider allowing guests to visit their farm outside the property in near future. We will definitely visit again.

Coming from the daily traffic madness in Manila, The Farm is absolute bliss. As soon as you leave the concrete jungle of Lipa City and enter the narrow road through the plantation, a different world opens. ‘Forest bathing’ was the term that came to my mind. I had been at The Farm some 5 years ago and had forgotten how peaceful and serene it was. There’s no TV in the rooms, which is great as if forces you to shut off and simply soak in the beautiful environment. We stayed in a Sulu Terrace which is small but perfect for 2 people. It’s also much cheaper than the Palmera Suites. We took advantage of the free yoga classes and the circuit training in the fitness studio. The teachers are very good, knowledgeable and engaging. We only stayed for one night, so we could not do everything that was offered. The vegan food was much better than I had remembered. As a vegetarian, I couldn’t get enough of the different dishes offered on the menu. For dinner we had the vegetable rolls and the pizza, both of which were excellent. The breakfast was my favorite: granola with coconut milk, pancake and fruit. The service and the hospitality are impeccable. Can't wait to return.

Our stay at The Farm brought me and my husband back to our happy childhood memories. We booked for a 3D2N stay in a Palmera and we were delighted to have been upgraded to a Garden villa. As we both grew up in a province, the smell of fresh air, the sound of chirping birds, the sight of lush vegetation, an encounter with a frog while we're walking under the rain, a dip in a waterfall pool, watching the fishes swim in a lagoon, and roaming the place together with peacocks, ducks and hens, brought us immense joy.
We made the right choice to celebrate my 41st birthday at The Farm. Having lived a busy life for more than 20 years in Manila, our stay at The Farm gave me the much needed break from a very stressful job ang gave my husband a clear mind while reviewing for the bar exam.
The Farm offers a range of vegan meals, a variety of daily activities and treatments, all designed to nourish our whole well being.
We would have loved to stay longer but for a working middle class like us, an extended stay may already hurt our pockets.
It was a brief stay but nevertheless, an unforgettable experience. It reminded us the greatness a healthy living can give. Above all, it transported us to a "probinsya" lifestyle with added sophistication and in so much good taste.

I have always been wanting to stay at the Farm at San Benito, thinking that it was just another good resort and spa not realizing it was a fully vegan and wellness resort. The staff were all so accommodating and friendly. They also ensured they are able to cater to your every need. They help explain things and activities in and around the resort. Vegan food is surprisingly tasty and delicious (dishes that were served to us and what we ordered) . It was also very filling with a lightness to it. After 3 days and 2 nights, i lost about 2 lbs yey! . The room we stayed was the Palmera Villa. Full sized windows allow you to see nature all around you. The shower was under the stars. Everything was organic in the bathroom. Wifi was strong in the rooms. No TV. There was a welcome fruit platter and lots of water Yey! pathways are well lighted and the air was fresh. Bring some off lotion with you as mosquitoes will be around. The place is full of trees and vegetation. You wont get bored as there were lots of daily activities you can join. Yoga, walking, cooking classes etc. I did a lot of walking around and simply enjoyed the downtime. The place ia a bit pricy but definitely worth it. Good place to jumpstart a healthy program. I will most likely come back for another visit but will be better prepared for the experience.

The management and staff really do take good care of the place. The entire property is huge. Whether you're looking for an entire day's activity or prefer to spend your time in this serene place, definitely worth the time. There's also strong wi-fi connections available wherever you are in this huge place :)

The only drawback are the prices of the foods. They offer 100% full vegan meals. These are specially crafted using only organic ingredients, mostly of which grew within the resort's gardens and mini forest. The food taste is unique so be prepared for gastronomic vegan ride.

The amenities are pretty much complete with spa, gym, pools, and a restaurant. Likewise, they offer accommodation from a humble "bahay kubo"-inspired cottage to mansion-big properties good for a group of families.

Truth be told, on our last day, I did feel healthier. I can really feel the change from the inside. Then there's the outside - each bathroom is equipped with complimentary salt (sumthing???) body scrub :) forgot the flavor but super lovely.

They also do fogging daily so the insects are minimal.

Overall, a must to visit. Just be ready with the price tags :)

Room tip: Their cheapest one is already a unique experience. No need to settle for the bigger ones unless there'll be several of sharing the room.
