Goshen Resort and Hotel is located in a secluded and mountainous area in the Municipality of Bamban in Tarlac Province which is about one and a half hour-drive or nearly 90 kilometers from Quezon City.
Bamban, Tarlac is a second class municipality which borders the Province of Pampanga to the south. Its bridge was greatly damaged by lahar when the dormant Mt. Pinatubo erupted and wreaked havoc in the Province of Pampanga and nearby provinces in June 1991.
Goshen Resort and Hotel opened in 2017 yet the resort is still under extensive development and expansion. It is nestled in a 4-hectare property near the ongoing contruction of New Clark City highway.
Goshen Resort and Hotel is also a theme park organized and managed by a corporation. Its theme is patterned after the famous Colosseum in Rome, Italy which fascinates hotel guests, visitors and walk-ins from neighboring provinces these days.
However, the last kilometer leading to the resort is narrow which contributes to the traffic build-up caused by stringent security measures of the resort management in its gate.
In the same way, the last stretch going to the resort is still unpaved not until reaching the resort proper.
Upon entry to the gate, massive Corinthian posts welcome the vistors.
According to a staff, when we got here on the first day of January 2020, the resort just registered a record-breaking turnout of 3,000 visitors.
As of press time, it has existing 33 spacious rooms categorized into guest house, mini villa, twin family rooms, bunk house, dorm-type rooms, resort standard, resort family, resort suite, standard suite, blue house, penthouse, presidential suite to name a few.

Also, the resort offers day/night swimming for walk-ins and hotel guests, 9 am to 5 pm and 5 pm to 10 pm.

In addition, alternative adventure is offered here like a ride on all-terrain vehicle (ATV) or quad. Their “side by side” or utility terrain vehicles (UTVs) are under maintenance.
