The place is very beautiful and it has the potential to be a top notch facility, but the management is terrible. They were understaffed. They just couldnt get it right. Ive been made aware that there was a recent change in ownership, and so i assume that they brought in a new management team that just doesnt understand how to... More

My daughter and I spent 5 days at The Farm in February and it met/surpassed all expectations. The actual property is beautiful: large, well landscaped, and tranquil. I know it was fully booked for the period we were there but would never have known if we had not been told. There are ample areas to wander or sit quietly. We... More

This was my first time at The Farm but it will not be my last. The Farm is located on a large property and everything about it is set up for relaxation, rejuvenation, and reflection. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with small lakes, waterfalls, meditation areas and lots of space. Peacocks strut around the grounds adding to the natural scenery.... More

Been here alone, twice. I know, right? But its a really good place to reflect with oneself and commune with nature. I really had a truly joyous moment alone at this place. I cannot find the right words to describe this place, its simply amazing. From food to your room, massage, activities, and simply be one with nature. Enchanting. As... More

I had one night and a day there but i would say is worth trying. Houses and in deepest silence in middle of the jungle. Pool and spa area are great looking and clean. Practicians at the massage are good, couldn't try other activity but I'm sure are ok. Food is a weak point as the served food is great... More

This is an ideal escape outside Metro Manila as location is not much of a drive. The grounds were lovely, and offered beautiful view of mountain. We stayed at Anahaw villa after upgrade. A modern take on traditional "bahay kubo" with 2 day beds, small table and chairs, and console table on the ground floor. Fruits and tarragon-infused water in... More

We really enjoyed our stay at The Farm. The staff were very courteous, the place was really charming and the food was excellent! I am now keeping this in mind whenever I'd be asked by my friends for recommendations.

Most of the best quality this place could offer were probably itemized in most of the reviews thus mine would be in a form of a letter while I am still here in their Garden Villa listening to the chirping birds and ofcourse looking at greens if I want to get off from my phone :) Dear The Farm at...

The place is nice, but the management ruined it, imaging staying in a resort cost you $300/night without dental kit? not to mention after several requests, promising to provide one but still went nought. Management seems like encountering memory lose, they never fulfill what they promised you. They food is just good for vegetarians, for meat lovers, stay away from... More

I stayed for 12 nights at The Farm over New Year’s. Relative to other spas that I’ve been to, the main standout features of The Farm are: (a) the absolutely breathtaking location and grounds, and (b) the Vegan/raw food. For these two features, my visit was certainly worth the very long flight to get to Manila! THE LOCATION: Upon arriving,... More
