( As much as a lot of things have improved for humanity over the centuries, studies show that the current generation (especially the young adults) has it the worst when it comes to their mental health. Stress is part of everyday vocabulary, from the moment we grab a cup of coffee to get us through the morning and up until we close our eyes—if we can—at night. The Farm at San Benito, which is tucked in the lush gardens of Batangas, hopes to provide a much-needed retreat to those experiencing the strain that comes with living in these turbulent times.

Experiencing The Farm at San Benito

"The Farm used to be a coconut plantation and a coffee plantation. It was just a jungle, and there were people who were gravitating toward this area for no reason at all. So the original owner investigated why, and so he invited some scientists and clairvoyants who found out that The Farm has healing energy wells and that's how it started. And then in 2007, the owner of CG [Hospitality] was a patient here at The Farm. [He] realized that this is such a beautiful thing to just be hiding in the Philippines—why can't we make it bigger and bring it to the world? So that's how CG Hospitality became involved with The Farm," explains Dr. Marian Alonzo, M.D., medical chief at The Farm at San Benito, in an interview with


The wellness resort not only features suites and villas where you can spend the night to get away from it all but also medically-supervised programs.

"When you say wellness, it's always connected to health so this has a medical center. The Farm has doctors and nurses on board 24/7," Alonzo adds.

Their health optimization programs include immune support, post-COVID recovery, holistic detox cleanse, radiation detox, weight management, holistic cancer care, and sleep induction therapy among others. They also have packages specific to pain management, mental health, and anti-aging; spa treatments focusing on hydrotherapy and mindful movement sessions.
