I went with my wife in January. I was nervous about going on a 'detox' vegetarian only type diet (only vegetarian food here). Well, it turns out, the vegetarian food was quite good. I expected to starve but was pleasantly surprised to not be. There were a lot of very nice dishes; the soups and appetizers were particularly nice. I... More

We needed to get back on track after four weeks of indulgence. We stayed at the farm for 7 days of pure vegan food and a lot of light to high moderate exercise (we have neither tried the massages nor medical treatments, so can't comment on that). It was great: we were refreshed and more than satisfied, and best of... More

So I went here thinking that we are going to a family friend's farm (blame the jet lag), but I ended up enjoying this place, "The Farm," and walked away with 2 inches off my waistline. Consider their scenic and serene nooks and crannies - waterfalls with a pool, the best (wish that's a heated pool). My Ventosa experience's in... More

The accommodations were very clean, classy, comfortable, elegant,... More

If your looking for a place to relax and detox this is for you. Be warned its a vegan menu so prepare yourself mentally. Book massages in advance to make sure you get a slot. Seclusion can be found at their many pools and quite corners around the grounds.

The Farm is a lovely resort, but for all the money you have to pay they should be able to deliver a more superior experience. I totally agree with the previous reviewer who said "Five star prices, three star operations." Spot on. I had planned a four-day retreat to exercise, eat healthy and relax, but I ended up returning home... More

One of the most relaxing and peaceful places I've been! They offer various services that will truly let you feel utmost relaxation. They have massages, gardens, detox diets. And it's legit, they cultivate their own veggies! Many celebrities have visited here and keep on coming back! Try it, it will be an awesome trip!

I stayed at the Farm 10-14Dec2015. I booked 4 nights to finish up a quarter of heavy international travel where I wanted to catch up on sleep, design my own mini-detox, and overall take care of myself. I live in the U.S. but was traveling in Asia on business. The Positives: the staff are extremely gracious, friendly, and kind. The... More
