The Farm at San Benito, a two-hour drive south of Manila on Luzon, the largest island in the Philippines, is one of the country's top holistic escapes: On 118 acres filled with gardens and palm trees, health-conscious travelers opt for yoga classes in open-air pavilions, outdoor basalt-stone massages. Rising above the 24 bungalows and misty lawns is Mount Malarayat, an extinct volcano, best seen from the spa's infinity pool.
