We planned this holiday to celebrate my daughter's 14th birthday and my husband's forthcoming birthday. We had a totally relaxing and "hushed" vacation! The place is a secret get-away, nestled in the lush forest, about 8 kilometers from Lipa City, and just roughly 2 hours away from Manila (via Star Tollway) on normal traffic conditions.

My husband and I were looking for a quiet overnight retreat outside the metro. We've been hearing a lot of positive reviews about The Farm for years now, but we were scared to go because we weren't vegan and we might not enjoy the food. But we're glad we overcame that fear and booked a room at Sulu Terraces. The... More

We absolutely love The Farm at San Benito! We first stayed here over the Valentine weekend 2013. We didn’t know much about The Farm then apart from what is written on their website and the fact that they don’t serve meat. Thinking it was too much of a sacrifice for us to suddenly go on a no meat diet for... More

My family and I visited The Farm for an overnight stay last November 2014. There were five of us. We had an interesting stay and quite relaxing but I can't say that I would go back to The Farm. While the place certainly has an appeal, it's not for everyone and is targeted to select individuals. Below are several key... More

The Farm is an extremely relaxing resort! The property is beautiful and no matter if you stay in the Sulu Terence aka tree hut or a villa, the experience is wonderful. The staff are all very friendly and know your name as the resort is very small - around 30 villas in total. I loved all the activities at The... More

Me and my mom came here to relax, to retreat from the hustle and bustle of Metro Manila, and to experience its healing capabilities. To this, The Farm did not disappoint. Indeed, it was a perfect place to engage with nature and with oneself. The place is well-maintained and the service is impeccable. Everyone is trained to handle guests from... More

This was the first time I treated myself to such an experience. I did a 4-night detox and it was well planned and methodical. The medical staff was excellent. Everything I tasted was incredible. My room was a tranquil haven. My only concern is multiple staff made comment about the recent change in management. It wasn't said in a negative... More

This review is about the day trip we had at the Farm. The plan was if we enjoyed our first visit (Day Trip), then we would all come back and stay for a couple of nights. To reciprocate the generosity of my friends, I asked them where we could take a short trip outside of Manila and added that it... More

We brought our two children to this incredibly beautiful retreat in the heart of the jungle as part of their introduction to the Philippines- thanks to the really excellent staff on the ground at the hotel they were not disappointed. They climbed coconut trees, went fishing, fed the hens and ducks, watched soap being made and went hunting in the... More

For the price of staying in this resort, one would expect impeccable service with high attention to detail. However we were thoroughly disappointed when things started going wrong before we even arrived at the resort. We made arrangements in advance for the resort to pick us up from our hotel in Manila at 11 am on a Friday which was... More
