Deep Within

A couples weekend retreat for reconnection, growth and relaxation

25 - 28th of April 2024

Mission

This couples retreat is designed to provide you with the necessary tools and skills to strengthen and improve your relationship - with yourself and your partner. We invite you on a delightful journey to beautiful Portugal, where you and your partner can focus solely on each other. No distractions from kids, work, appointments, or stress - just the two of you.

Our idyllic retreat setting provides the perfect backdrop for relaxation and reflection, with opportunities for leisurely walks, moments by the pool, and meaningful conversations. Whether you're strolling hand in hand through the serene surroundings or enjoying a quiet moment together, you'll have plenty of chances to reconnect and create cherished memories.

 

Join us for a weekend of self-discovery, growth, and reconnection, and leave feeling more connected and in tune with your partner than ever before.

This couples retreat is designed by relationship experts Clarinda Brandao and Maria Mihailoska from Saúde in the city and Isabel Maria, founder of Monkeymindretreats.
