Living your day to day 8 to 5 job can be quite stressful and exhausting. It’s always best to give yourself time to relax and rejuvenate. Spend time with your friends and families, pamper yourself, and escape the hustle and bustle of the city once in a while. It’s great that you’re hustling hard, but taking the time off once in a while is great, too. It’s part of working hard. After all, once you’re rested, you can be 100% productive!
If you’re looking for a great place for a weekend getaway, relax, swim, be surrounded by nature, and have time to play, Camp Benjamin is what you’re looking for! Here’s everything you need to know about this awesome place!
Disclosure: I have partnered with Camp Benjamin for this post. All opinions are my own.
About Camp Benjamin
Camp Benjamin is your one-stop premiere destination for wellness and transformation. Composed of Shalom Hotel, WIN Farm and MON’s Restaurant, Camp Benjamin offers a lot more than what a usual resort has. Here’s what you can expect from this resort in Alfonso Cavite.
With all the trees around Camp Benjamin, you’ll have one stunning view when you try the zipline. It’s not that long of a zipline, but it’s a two-way ride. Your ticket includes a round trip ride on the zipline.
I had butterflies in my stomach before we rode the zipline since we were so far up. But with a small push, we were flying through the air beside the trees. Here’s a tip, when ziplining at Camp Benjamin, keep your head to the side so you don’t bump your head on the rope. Don’t worry if you don’t remember this. The staffs will remind you.
Remember when you were a kid and you loved to go on that slide by the pool over and over again? Remember how fun it was? Yup. That’s what the bubble slide will also make you feel but it’s waaay better! It’s bigger, too.
Want to learn how to plant, harvest, start your own organic farm outside your city apartment? Or try feeding animals and taste fresh herbs? Check it all out at WIN Farm inside Camp Benjamin!
What does Camp Benjamin’s swimming pool have that others don’t? It has a 6 Jet Water Massage, and outdoor jacuzzi! Not only that but it also has several fountains that your kids will surely love.
Last time I tried wall climbing was back at Sandbox Pampanga. I couldn’t reach the top because the rocks were all wet and slippery from the previous climbers. But with Camp Benjamin, there shouldn’t be any reason why I couldn’t reach the top so I did. Hohoho. This girl reached the top! It feels so good to write that. Wohooo!
MON’s Restaurant is famous for their romantic dine under the stars package but you’ll surely keep coming back for more for their food! The pancit buko and bibing crepe is a must try!

What We Loved
We loved every single bit of our stay at Camp Benjamin! Our stay at the Single Cabana of Shalom Hotel was unforgettable. Their glass windows and walls will forever inspire Ryk and I’s future house. This article goes into detail about our time at Shalom Hotel.
In addition to the rooms, we fell in love with the yummy foods at MON’s Restaurant! Unfortunately, we didn’t get to try dining outside because of the rain but the experience dining inside the restaurant was just as good!
Lastly, trying our hands-on farming at WIN Farm is a time to remember especially with the cute rabbits. Aww. Their fur was so sooooft.
