Goshen Resort: Bringing the Beauty of Rome in Bamban, Tarlac

Some travels need not to be planned. And sometimes, the best thing comes in the most unexpected experience.

We Wander PH surprisingly discovered a fascinating and tranquil place hidden in the town of Bamban, Tarlac. We were thrilled to witness an incredibly beautiful setting and admired such artistry. We know you’ll love the place too! Welcome to Goshen Resort, where it feels like Rome!

You don’t need a visa or passport to go to your dream Rome, Italy destination and see the infamous Colosseum or Coliseum also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre. In less than a 3-hour drive, experience an extra-different summer with your loved ones and friends.

Dambana ni Yahweh

The “Dambana ni Yahweh” is the main attraction in Goshen Resort and Hotel for its appealing look resembling the Amphitheatrum Flavium building in Rome, Italy. The structure will definitely attract visitors and will give everyone a perfect backdrop for family and barkada pictures. The place is lovely and romantic.
