Wellness Tourism: Shifting the Way We Travel, The Farm at San Benito

By, Sydni Sands

The Farm at San Benito

Do you know that feeling of needing a vacation after your vacation? We work so hard all year and plan these amazing trips that end up draining us because of how we eat, drink, and skip our daily self-care habits while away. We come home exhausted with no time to rest before getting back to our full and busy daily lives. Well, what if your vacation was focused on enhancing your vitality, instead of draining it, so that you come home feeling better than ever, ready to get back to life and work with more zest and energy?

Imagine spending an entire week (or more) completely dedicated to your healing and transformation at a beautiful resort overlooking the Malarayat mountains in the Philippines. The Farm at San Benito offers exactly that, “A life transformative healing holiday.” People from all over the world visit The Farm as they offer a range of experiences for those who simply enjoy living a holistic lifestyle to those seeking deeper healing from cancer or another illness. The Farm is a popular wellness tourism destination that utilizes a unique blend of technology and nature to create a holistic and sustainable approach to healing.

What is Wellness Tourism?

Wellness tourism is a growing multi-trillion-dollar industry and is defined by The Global Wellness Institute as, “travel associated with the pursuit of maintaining or enhancing one’s personal well-being.” The Farm is one of the leading wellness destinations in the world and has won over 100 international awards, including Best Eco-Luxury Holistic Medical Wellness Resort at the Southeast Asia Business Awards in 2022.
