Passion in Paradise
Deepen Connection, Embrace Desires & Create a Lifetime of Pleasure
If you're a couple who longs to keep alive the fiery passion that brought you together, then join us for a Valentine’s Week Intimacy Retreat that will ignite your desires, deepen your emotional connection, and create a love that will burn brightly for years to come.
The playful calls of birds filling the air wakes you up and a relaxed smile spreads across your face. You can hear the gentle tropical breeze rustling through the trees as you snuggle close to your beloved.
A deep sense of peace and contentment washes over you.
Pura Vida…Life is Good.
You sit across from your partner, bathed in the soft glow of the sunrise coming over the mountain, feeling the world fade away as you create your own special bubble. It is just the two of you, lost in the depth of each other's eyes and the warmth of each other's touch. You feel a level of emotional connection that you have both been longing for, a feeling of being truly seen and understood.
You speak freely of your love and desires, knowing that in this sacred space, there is no judgement, only acceptance and the promise of a future filled with tender moments, shared passions and a deep sense of intimacy that will only grow stronger with time.
The world outside of your bubble ceases to exist, and all that matters is the connection between the two of you. It is a moment that you both know will be etched in your memories forever, a moment of pure love and vulnerability that leaves you feeling more alive, in love and excited about your future than ever before.
Yes my friend…You can have all of this…and so much more.
A deep sense of peace and contentment washes over you.
Let’s face it, long-term relationships can be a challenge. The spark that was once so strong starts to fade, and before you know it, passion and excitement are replaced by routine and monotony. It’s all too easy for resentments to build up, leaving you feeling disconnected and frustrated. Relationships need time and attention to grow and flourish, which doesn’t happen often in our busy lives.
But wouldn’t it be incredible if you could dedicate an entire week to your relationship in a magnificent, luxurious tropical jungle setting?
Are you longing for deeper emotional connection with your partner?
Do you want to take your sex life to the next level and engage more with each other both physically and spiritually?
Wouldn’t it be great to “want to want sex” again?
What would it be like if you understood what turns you on in the bedroom and had the confidence to request what gives you pleasure?
Wouldn’t it be mind-blowing if you could have vacation sex all year long?
Can you imagine being excited about becoming empty nesters and having a life time ahead of you for fun, exploration and adventure, in and out of the bedroom?
If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, then you absolutely must join us for a week of Passion in Paradise!
Our specially designed couples retreat was created with you in mind!
- Surrounded my amazing vistas, in the lap of luxury, you will dedicate an entire week to strengthening your bonds, free of distractions and life stresses.
- Carefully crafted connection and communication exercises will open your hearts and leave you feeling more fulfilled in your relationship than ever before.
- You’ll discover the root cause of mismatched desires and leave with practical tools to re-ignite the spark.
- Interactive learning, live demos of sensual massages and plenty of alone time will help re-kindle passion and desire—Experience vacation sex all year long!
- You will discover and embrace your core desires and sexual style so that you can confidently ask for and receive the pleasure you want and deserve.

Pura Vida…Life is Good.
Welcome to Costa Rica… a lush and captivating destination that beckons lovers from all corners of the world. From the moment you arrive, your senses are awakened by the beauty of the tropical paradise. The warm air envelops you as you take in the verdant green of the rainforest that surrounds you. The playful calls of monkeys and toucans invite you to explore their world. The air is filled with the sweet scent of the rain forest and the sounds of the jungle echos in the distance.
Relaxation and passion await you at The Retreat in Costa Rica, your very own “Heaven on Earth”.
Nestled in the Crystal Mountains, with stunning views of the rainforest, Nicoya Peninsula and Pacific Ocean, the Retreat in Costa Rica is a Conde Nast top resort. On these sprawling grounds you can explore the lush jungles where you'll find endless opportunities for intimacy and romance. You'll discover hidden gems, natural streams, and other secret spots that offer the perfect opportunity for a private rendezvous.
At night, the rainforest comes alive with the sounds of night creatures, adding an extra layer of vibrancy to the already enchanting atmosphere. Sitting on your deck, snuggled up to your partner, under the twinkling stars, you take in the raw beauty of nature.
Your room is stunningly beautiful, impeccably designed with the utmost attention to detail. You sink into your delicious king size bed, luxuriate in your oversized shower, and bask in the breathtaking views of the surrounding jungle.
During your ample free time, you can take a refreshing dip in one of the two gorgeous outdoor pools, lounge in the sun with a good book, or explore the jungle on the numerous hiking trails that run throughout the resort. If you’re a work out junkie, we’ve got you covered with an awesome fitness center and daily yoga classes.
The on-site Spa and Wellness Center is to die for! From rejuvenating facials to soothing massages, you can nourish your body, soothe your soul and reconnect with your inner self.
Optional tours and trips are also available although most participants chose to spend their free time sunning, relaxing, or doing some “home-play”.
A Farm to Table Experience

Chef takes pride in offering an unforgettable farm-to-table dining experience that tantalizes and delights your taste buds.

You start your day with a refreshing breakfast fruit plate, adorned with seasonal fruit such as slices of luscious papaya, tangy guava, and juicy mango, followed by a heartier breakfast option.
Lunchtime is a celebration of plant-based goodness. You feast on organic vegetarian dishes and salads, freshly grown on the farm. In every bite you discover a symphony of flavors, showcasing the vibrant produce and the creativity of Chef.
The moment you sit down for your three course dinner, the enticing aroma of fresh seafood fills the air. Prepared with local fish and tender shrimp, the flavors are elevated to perfection through a blend of fragrant spices.
