Visit The Farm at San Benito to nourish your senses and stay for the state-of-the-art facilities and world-class healing, aesthetic and medical treatments by licensed practitioners in a luxurious environment complete with wildlife, flawless service and award-winning vegan cuisine.
Dr. Rommel Tinio, The Farm at San Benito’s resident doctor, says that regular detoxification is essential for the human body. This helps improve our immune system, making it stronger and function properly. “Our bodies are like machines—for it to work properly it needs regular maintenance, periodic check-ups, and the right parts and process to make sure it will work.”
The Detox D’Lite Program, which I was fortunate to experience, lasts four days and the good news is, it’s completely customisable. Read on for more.

So, What’s it All About?: The Detox D’Lite program is an all-inclusive four-night program, which can be upgraded to a six-night weight management program for rapid, guaranteed, and sustainable weight loss. Look forward to clean living during your stay through medically guided meals and fasts, various juices throughout the day, physical activity and exercises, as well as medically supervised treatments. Basically, whether you have a physical, mental or emotional concern, The Farm has a treatment to safely address it and help you towards a healthier, happier, and more productive lifestyle.
From live blood analysis to acupuncture, ozone therapy and colonics to scrubs, wraps, skin brushing and massages – look forward to a combination of these treatments and more once the medical practitioners have carefully studied your health records.
What to Expect? The Farm at San Benito’s Five Pillars are to diagnose, cleanse, nourish, repair and sustain and their expert staff of licensed medical professionals, nutritionists, food experts, spa therapists, fitness coaches, and yoga teachers work together to do just that by creating a customised program to help address your concerns.
Who’s Treating You? The team of physicians at The Farm at San Benito are trained specifically on a science-based, evidence-based and results-driven approach to attaining optimal health and they’re warm and friendly too.
The Farm has also collaborated with European Wellness™ and CIGNA Global Healthcare to provide holistic solutions for treating chronic health disorders, chronic pain, work related stress, anxiety, depression and more. Non-invasive beauty and anti-aging services for those who wish to enhance their physical aspects through a holistic approach are also on offer.

What’s on the Menu?: Whether you are a vegan or not, you will love the innovative all-vegan dishes coming out award-winning Alive! with Executive Chef Francis and his amazing team running the show. Super fresh is the name of the game here – most of what you eat at The Farm is grown right on the property while the rest is sourced from local organic farmers nearby. Based on your program you will be provided with a customised menu for each meal with two choices per course- you just can’t go wrong, take my word for it.
Cooking methods at Alive! Restaurant such as blanching, dehydration and fermentation ensures the food served here is high in fibre and provides the essential nutrients, antioxidants, phytonutrients, probiotics and key enzymes that our bodies need to optimise nutrition, purge toxins, and improve digestion. Look out for a brand new pescatarian restaurant Pesce! launching any day now.
Holistic, Healing and Acqua Sanctuary: Holistic healing at the Holistic Sanctuary begins by addressing health and lifestyle issues during a thorough medical consultation with a doctor. While you are at The Farm, make sure you unwind at the state-of-the-art spa, which incorporates traditional healing practices of Philippine Healing Art using 100% virgin coconut oil and medicinal herbs or swim in the infinity pool all at the Healing Sanctuary. I also recommend signing up for a hydrotherapy wellness program at the Acqua Sanctuary – it is truly incredible. The Jacuzzi with pressure jets for your back, legs and soles of your feet, a warm onsen bath, Vichy Shower Treatment, Kneipp therapy, blind shower therapy and an infra-red sauna are just a few of the unique treatments to look forward to when you sign up.
When you’re not detoxing?: Take part in morning and afternoon yoga, wellness talks, power walks, Mandala flower arrangement, aqua aerobics, functional fitness, make friends with one of the many beautiful peacocks roaming the property or simply sit under the 250-year old mango tree and meditate.
The Damage: An All-inclusive Life-Changing Holiday starts at USD 545++ per person per night based on double occupancy; USD 655++ per night based on single occupancy. This price will vary based on the accommodation type and program you choose (Holistic Wellness, Detox Cleanse, Weight Management, Diabetes Prevention & Heart Health).
