“Love for The Farm at San Benito”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

Goodbye Summer! Too sad for a wife who missed the chance of getting into the sun with husband.

Uh-oh… not until she learned about her husband coming home with a surprise for an overnight stay at The Farm at San Benito.

On his way home from SFO, I’ve grabbed my tablet to check how the place looks like, what are the amenities, etc. In retrospect, a big “YES. Let’s go!” came out of my mouth the moment I saw this -

The Farm at San Benito - swimming pool - infinity pool

The day

We like road trips. But not at that time when husband’s dragging himself from bed – in the process of coping up from jet lag. It’s good to know that TFSB is located a few hours away from the city.

But please, if you’re planning to go there, contact The Farm first or you might end up relying to GPS apps that will provide you with the longer route.

We were greeted by amicable staffs!

Highlights

I love how the leaves were etched on the floor.

Healthy food and drinks (with a bonus of The Farm’s generosity to share the recipe)

Extreme Customer care (what was lacking – let it pass, it is being covered by the warmth/passion of TFSB employees)

Left my digital camera at Alive! (TFSB resto) One of the staff hurriedly approached us to return the camera. Thank you so much Kuya!

Love the itinerary-based activities (Yoga, flower arrangement activity, healthy snack time, grounding/earthing, circuit fitness training, etc.)
Nature!

Here's the link with some photos to tell how we enjoyed the stay:

Staying at The Farm is like stepping out of your normal world into one of shear luxury, not just tangible beautiful villas and surrounds, but the fantastic atmosphere that is created by the amazing staff that are there to make your stay so special, most specially Romy and Mona. They are amazing and exceptional and also a credit to the resort. Keep it up guys! Thank you for surprising my son Marcus on his 4th bday. From the first moment we arrived to the last moment saying good bye we were blown away with the ambiance, hospitality, accommodations, and the care everyone took to ensure our stay was beyond amazing. We felt like we discovered paradise.
Wonderful place to spend time together taking in all the beauty , relaxing, and just being and doing nothing. There is something for everyone, and is suited for couples or families. We are foodies and love discovering and trying new things. We love the healthy food that they serve. I look forward to returning in the near future. We truly found paradise on earth. It is worth it. Best vacation ever.

Amazing slice of heaven...

This is the place to restore your health.
My 11 year old love this place too. They have a number of activities everyday - harvesting vegetables, fishing with a bamboo pole, soap making etc.
This is our 6th day at the Lakan Villa. Highly recommended

I am not a morning person. However, waking up early becomes so easy at The Farm. Bed and room is very comfortable (we stayed in Palmera Suite) and ours is properly made up in the morning upon returning from breakfast, and in the afternoon after attending some activities. Truly, it is worth the travel (it is located somewhere hidden from the outside world), as we enter, we felt as if we have entered another world - one that is peaceful, relaxing and serene.

Food and spa are great; attendants around The Farm are accommodating and friendly, as if we are their most important guests. Our whole day was not enough for the activities, yet we ask for more. After two days, we already felt that we are truly cleansed, body and mind. Checking-out was very hard, as we somewhat claimed the place as our own home.

It's way off the beaten track and you'd sometimes feel that you may already be lost. But you come upon directional signs once in a while so you are assured that you're going the right way. It's several kilometers away from the city proper. It's secluded. It's quiet and serene. A perfect place to relax, to refresh, to recharge. Even the food and drinks they serve are all healthy and reinvigorating. They offer different packages to guests, but we passed by just out of curiosity, having read and heard so much about its charm and splendor. Truly beautiful and divine but, mind you, it;s not cheap..

This was a pleasant surprise! After a lengthy approach (google maps is missing some roads there, we ended up entering by the back door street ;-)) you end up in a quiet oasis far away from the usual noise and excitement. This is a lacto-ovo vegetarian resort (as I have found out only there haha), a first for me. So they won't serve meat, anything with eggs or not even milk (which is a bit strange). But they have beer! (but no Coke)

But the food was excellent, and so is the resort. Many pools, an extensive garden landscape, and the rooms (cottages) were quite cozy.

Recommended, but only for one day (unless you are a die-hard vegetarian).

Every time we go to the Farm the healing and inspiring beauty hits you the minute you arrive. The food is incredible, the yoga taught by gentle and calm instructors,the gardens and accommodation the most beautiful in the country. This place is a world class sanctuary. Can not recommend it more highly.
