March 8, 2012 – The Farm at San Benito in Lipa, Batangas, is proud and delighted to have been awarded the SENSES Wellness Award for “Best Medical Wellness Resort”. The criteria employed by the international jury to select the winning property include the entire holistic concept, the high standard of wellness as well as medical treatments and therapies, the level of staff and the location and environment of the property.
SENSES is an international premium wellness and lifestyle guide that has been published in German and English for the past 14 years and in Russian since 2006. The Senses Wellness Award is an international barometer for the hallmark of excellence for the entire international hotel, lifestyle sector, and wellness industry and, as a Swiss newspaper reported, the OSCARS of SPA Hotels. The awards gala took place during ITB, one of the world¹s largest tourism fairs in Berlin, Germany.
This year marks a special occasion as it is the first time this accolade has been awarded to the Philippines. Having won 22 international awards since 2004, The Farm has served as an inspiration to the Philippine tourism industry for the significant increase these awards has generated in creating awareness among the international community that the Philippines has made its mark as one of the leading wellness destinations in the Asia-Pacific region.
