Suite of the Week: The tranquil Lakan Villa at The Farm at San Benito


Given how the Philippines is an island mostly favoured for its white-washed beaches and diving expeditions, the Farm at San Benito has us refreshed. It is after all the only medical health retreat in the Philippines. Nestled in a forest and surrounded with a host of coconut, bamboo and guyabano trees, the location of the property leaves most fascinated. Keep aside the concept of a conventional vacation, and embrace this wellness retreat with all it has to offer. In addition to a plethora of treatments onsite; there’s pampering, too: scrubs, wraps and a huge variety of massages take place at the tranquil Healing Sanctuary. Their USP though, are their well-trained and highly experienced therapists.


Amidst pure greenery, the spacious guest rooms awaken a true sense of nature in you. But, our heart lies with the property’s Lakan villa; a sprawling two-bedroom exclusive accommodation perfect for a family or two couples travelling together.

Adorned with wooden interiors and modern decor, the sprawling 5,500 sq ft villa even entails its own pool and walled garden. The concept of technology has been preserved in the spacious living area through an iPad docking station, a satellite 42” TV and DVD player. The kitchenette, bar area and maid’s quarters with bathroom definitely are some major plus points when travelling with children. The massive bedrooms are equipped with king-sized beds, en-suite bathrooms and handmade bathroom amenities. Our most treasured element though is the terrace which leads to your private pool.

The vegan breakfast is something one cannot miss and of course, it is included in your stay. Perks also include a Holistic Health service orientation, Healing Sanctuary Spa and Acqua Sanctuary service orientation; and a 20% discount on medical services, spa treatments and Acqua Hydrotherapy.
