Our intimacy retreats provide the opportunity
to reconnect and take in the beautiful view
around you and right in front of you.

FEBRUARY 13 - 18, 2023 - COUPLES PRICE $6,995 (Custom payment options available)


A magical, transformative experience awaits you and your beloved at the magnificent and secluded Palamaia beach resort in Playa del Carmen…  the chance to get away from it all and simply focus on each other. Our intimacy retreats provide the opportunity to reconnect and take in the beautiful view around you and right in front of you. 

We all know that “Vacation Sex” is almost always the best. There’s even an article about it in Conde Nast that Xanet was interviewed for!  Not only will this retreat provide you with plenty of free time for intimacy and connection, but it will also help you learn how to maintain the same level of passion, connection and intimacy during the rest of the year.

Through interactive and experiential exercises in an intimate group setting, you will learn how to create a more conscious, joyful and passionate relationship. Some of the tools that you will explore with your partner include embodiment, vulnerability, sensual touch, romance and passion, power play, fantasies and desires. Whether you’ve been together for 3 months or 30 years, this retreat will reignite your passion and keep that fire burning for years to come.


You and your partner should attend this retreat if:

·      You want to deepen intimacy and your emotional connection

·      You want to strengthen your communication around sex

·      You are interested in exploring your desires

·      You want to learn how to interact in your sexual style (e.g. energetic, sensual, kinky)

·      Sex has become routine and boring

·      You have become roommates rather than lovers

·      One or both of you are struggling with desire and attraction


By the end of the retreat you will have all the tools that you need to create a dynamic long term sexual relationship where you feel seen, heard, and desired.

"In to Me See . . . Intimacy is a completely different dimension. It is allowing the other to come into you, to see you, as you see yourself." - Osho
