LIPA, BATANGAS – Chemist and philanthropist Pinky Tobiano celebrated her birthday in sustainable style last Saturday, July 16, 2022, surrounded by family, celebrities, and business leaders at The Farm at San Benito’s newly opened Banaba Function Hall, which she transformed into her personal patch of paradise; lush greeneries and sparkling lights with the help of International floral and event designer Gideon Hermosa and The Farm’s world-class culinary team that prepared a nutritious bespoke feast of living food served by a beeline of dancing waiters.
The Progressive Laboratories, Qualibet Testing Services Corp., and KPP Powers Commodities CEO, who has dedicated her life to health and wellness, was greeted by Philippine showbiz and entertainment A-listers such as Derek Ramsay and Ellen Adarna-Ramsay, Tim Yap, Christian Bautista, Yeng Constantino-Asuncion, Erik Santos, Moira Dela Torre and many more.
Also in attendance were Mr. Rajan Uttamchandani, Director of The Farm, and Mr. Rahul Chaudhary, the CEO of Nepalese multinational conglomerate CG Hospitality, which owns and operates The Farm. Mr. Chaudhary was in the country for a slew of business meetings and media appointments as CG looks to expand its footprint in the Philippines and globally.
As one of the world’s top eco-luxury medical wellness destinations and a pioneer in green weddings & events, The Farm at San Benito served as the perfect place for a cancer survivor like Ms. Tobiano, to hold a truly safe event in a post-pandemic world. With the utmost care, responsibility, and creativity of everyone at The Farm, guests celebrated Pinky’s birthday in a lush, COVID-free healing sanctuary, a mere 90-minute drive away from Metro Manila.
Many of Ms. Tobiano’s esteemed guests made the most out of their trip to The Farm. Social media was ablaze with celebrity guests sharing their beautiful accommodations and innovative medical treatments; a testament to the world that the Philippines has indeed emerged as an industry leader in luxury medical wellness through The Farm at San Benito.
The Farm uses a multi-modal approach against COVID-19 to protect guests and employees at all times. It has an onsite COVID testing where RT-PCR or antigen nasal swab tests are administered by licensed health professionals. Employees at The Farm are also required to undergo swab testing every week. All facilities at The Farm are sanitized by Sanivir Smoke, which is proven by international laboratories to effectively eliminate all types of viruses, including coronavirus, on surfaces and in the air. The Farm is also the first in the country to use BetterAir solution that disperses environmental probiotics in all its enclosed spaces to create a clean, pathogen- and allergen-free healthy indoor environment.
The Farm was certified by the Healing Hotels of the World with a Healing Certificate and safety seal from the Philippine Department of Tourism and World Tourism Council. These recognitions are a reflection of the highest level of excellence in safety, sanitation, and commitment to healing on a holistic level.
With all these safety measures in place, it is no wonder that Ms. Tobiano has also chosen to make her permanent residence here; being one of the pioneer villa owners of one of The Farm’s Mahogany Luxury – ELITE Residences. Ms. Tobiano has filled her villa with some of the most stunning Filipino modern art pieces and enjoys the safety, tranquility, and heartfelt service of The Farm on a daily basis.
The Farm General Manager Mr. Preet Singh reflects; “Pinky’s journey as a chemist, entrepreneur, and cancer survivor has truly made her an advocate of wellness, and it came as no surprise to us that she made the decision to become a pioneer resident here and be part of our mission; we truly value that.”
Events at The Farm are now more accessible than ever before; just like Pinky Tobiano, guests can book the stunning Banaba Function Hall for private or corporate events, featuring massive glass panes that seamlessly integrate the natural beauty of The Farm into any occasion or celebration. In addition to the hall, the new Banaba Deluxe and Banaba Executive Suites above it are also available as brand-new additions to The Farm’s iconic inventory of luxury suites and villas.
“The Farm at San Benito always maintains to be relevant to the safety and well-being of our guests, even when celebrating momentous occasions. We always go back to our core mission of providing an environment where everyone can be safe and keep in mind that health is wealth. Here at The Farm, we have created a sanctuary for those who want healing and peace and those who wish to find joy through celebrations.
