Hello there! We’re back with another quick getaway suggestion. This time, it’s courtesy of 21-year-old Pinay vlogger, Ry Velasco.
For Valentine’s 2020, Ry and her boyfriend Edric Go, went on a quick getaway to The Farm At San Benito, which is located in Lipa, Batangas. According to Ry’s vlog, it only took them roughly two hours to get there from Manila.
Before heading to The Farm, they stopped by a convenience store to buy snacks, just in case there weren’t any available at the resort. When they got to their destination, they checked into their two-person suite. Ry gave us a short tour of their room, which had two single beds and a straight-out-of-Pinterest minimalist bathroom.
Their villa includes a lounging area, located in an open area below the room.
Ry said that their accomodation cost them around P10,000 per head because they didn’t make reservations and were walk-in guests. Based on The Farm at San Benito’s website, their villa is called the Sulu Terraces and it has a maximum occupancy of two adults.
There are three pools inside the resort, and on their first day, Ry and Edric took a dip in the infinity pool—overlooking The Farm’s beautiful scenery filled with luscious trees.
Although it wasn’t included in her vlog, it seems that Ry—as seen on her Instagram post—also enjoyed one of the resort’s smaller pools.
Who would’ve thought that this gem is located just outside Manila?
There are two ways to get to The Farm from Manila:
- You can go for a two-hour drive. To get there, you can follow this map posted on the resort’s website.
