How to Get There
This was our 2nd time at The Farm. If you want to relax in a peaceful atmosphere this is the place to go. We did detox (soup & juices) had the restaurant food on the 1st and last day which was really very tasty (Vegetarian/vegan only). The staff are really lovely and always available for questions and if help needed.
The ONLY thing we didn't. like this trip was the new European Wellness Centre. We signed up for a couple of scans which, upon getting the results, where not really worth the money we paid and felt that it was just an exercise to then push very expensive supplements on you. We wouldn't use it again when we go back next time.
All the treatments in the Spa, massages etc are wonderful and the staff are excellent at what they do. The cost of these are not included in your booking so it can get expensive if you do several treatments. But they are worth the money.
The cost of the airport transfer is quite steep but as it takes 1.5hrs to transfer I would recommend that its the best way to get there and back.
This is not a cheap break but if you want 3-6 days (I think more than that would be too much) of total relaxation away from the busy world we live in then this is the place for you, we definitely left feeling more relaxed and healthier than when we arrived.
Resort is very neat and clean. The Farm is the perfect place to recharge from a exhausting and tiring city. Lastly, all the workers and personnel are very accommodating and kind. We stayed in Water Glass Villa and the room is so clean, bed and pillows are new, comfort room is super clean! Food are all organic. If you wish to have a stomach-full getaway, I bet this will never be an option.
The Farm was a birthday gift from my husband and my 4-night stay there was absolute heaven. I did the detox program and every hour / every meal was thoughtfully planned out by The Farm. I have never felt so nurtured and cared for in my life. The grounds are beautifully maintained (with gorgeous peacocks, ducks, geese and rooster) and there are so many magical places (like the Big Lagoon) to tuck yourself away from the world and have a moment of peace. I really enjoyed all of the juices and vegan meals (although I am not vegan), and I left The Farm feeling completely nourished and replenished. Grateful to all of the staff who were so so lovely throughout my stay. Special thanks to Chef Marie who taught me delicious dishes from the Alive restaurant and Ben from Alive, and Cleo from the holistic sanctuary and the incredible yoga instructors (Jhaz and Paulo) and wonderful staff at the healing sanctuary and holistic sanctuary...so many wonderful people who helped me during my stay that I cannot count! And of course special thanks to Romi who took care that all of the details of my stay were taken care of. It's been a few days since my trip and I already really miss The Farm and all of the people there. Very grateful for this wonderful experience.
Spent my daughter’s birthday weekend in the Farm as she requested. Enjoyed the celebration even more with our 2 doggies, one of whom was a co-celebrator. None of us is vegan but we still enjoyed the smoothies, pasta and pizza. Visiting the Farm seems to be an annual retreat because we enjoy taking along our loved pets. We need more pet friendly weekend resorts.
We and my friends stayed for two days and on night. We booked the Narra Pool Villa. When we saw the villa we were truly impressed by the quality of the interior . The bed is a heaven, the pool is so so so clean. Fresh linen sheets and towels. The aircon is working well. Because we loved our villa pool so much we stayed our first day there and decided to check the grounds the day atter. Their restaurant is for vegan lovers so warning for the meat lovers. It tasted so well. I just hope that they could add more selections on their breakfast and can include mini ref in the villas.
This is a paradise and i can waitto be back again to de stress here.
