2. The Farm at San Benito
Another remote outpost for zen comes in the form of The Farm at San Benito.
Located in 4217 Lipa City, The Farm holds firm to its name by integrating the idea of a nature reserve with all the amenities found in the best resorts.
Work out, not in the tense one-upmanship of city gyms but the relaxed, welcoming embrace of a gym that mixes in elements of the outdoors and modern gym equipment.
Practice yoga, pilates or even meditate against an elegant backdrop of flourishing nature as you change not only the landscape but also your mentality in the calm of The Farm.
Breathe in the unsullied airs as you find yourself engulfed by a wave of serenity.
3. Kapuluan Vista Resort
This resort might not have the holistic wellness of the previous two resorts, but for what it aims to do, no one does it better.
Kapuluan Vista Resort is located on 2919 Pagudpud, and boasts the same picturesque credentials that most other zen resorts possessed but tweaks their resort to be more accommodating of families.
The food is a particular delight with an exquisite array of International and local cuisine laid out for the world-weary traveler.
Finally, cap off the delicacies with nature at its finest.
Enjoy a plethora of activities that include hiking, biking, trekking, and kayaking amidst the breathtaking natural carvings of mountains and seas.
4 .Date and Dine Resort
Situated in Beverly Hills Subdivision, 1870 Antipolo, the Date and Dine Resort could be best described as a zen getaway for two.
Date and Dine Resort provides a fun, relaxing alternative to the spiritual getaways that the other vacations might promise.
But that doesn’t mean this is some kind of party resort, you can definitely find the peace you seek in a locale that encourages peaceful quiet at night.
Finally, in true resort style, you can enjoy a relaxing massage and treatments at beauty salons at the resort while taking in the leisurely pace of life.
The Philippines might seem to be slowly turning into a country rushing forward at an industrial pace, but take heed in the knowledge that there are still places of zen to calm your mind and ease your senses.
