Why Stay At The Farm at San Benito
Looking to truly escape it all? The 24-suite Farm at San Benito, a Philippine wellness retreat on 118 acres, 90 minutes south of Manila, is an exotic, unexpected place to relax and recharge.
The next stop on the New Asian Grand Tour? The Philippines, where white-sand beaches are paired with affordable escapes, and wellness hideaways lure spa-goers into the jungle. The Farm at San Benito, a 90-minute drive south of Manila on Luzon, the largest island in the Philippines, is one of the country's top holistic escapes: it's an ideal—albeit unexpected—place for casual relaxation or serious detox. On 118 acres filled with gardens and palm trees, health-conscious travelers opt for yoga classes in open-air pavilions, outdoor basalt-stone massages, and medical procedures ranging from nutrition consultations to digital meridian testing (to measure the body's energy flow). Rising above the 34 luxury suites and villas and misty lawns is Mount Malarayat, an extinct volcano, best seen from the spa's infinity pool.
Learn to whip up a satisfying, nutritious meal (sans meat) at Alive!, the hotel's on-site vegan restaurant. Cooking classes are offered on site and are complimentary for guests.
Set aside an afternoon to learn about the the art of meditation during on-site activities, such as Mandala Floral Arranging.
