Once a year, we go all out for couples. During these 7 days on the Big Island of Hawaii, you will not only open to more love and connection you thought possible, but you will have enough time to integrate these positive changes into your lives back home. We focus on seeing our partner with new eyes, healing dysfunctional patterns, communication of feelings, enhancing the sexual relationship, and practicing loving appreciation. We have couple yoga and meditations, inspiring music, laughter and thrilling sight-seeing – in short, an extraordinary heart-opening experience for you and your partner in the presence of dolphins, whales, giant sea turtles, a beautiful black sand beach, the nearby lava flow, steam vents, delightful snorkeling, and thermal warm ponds.


Happy Couples -- A glowing group!

KALANI OCEANSIDE RETREAT, surrounded by jungle and ocean, it is a place of lush gardens and warm ocean breezes on the Kalapana coast on the Hilo side of Hawaii, the “Big Island.” It is rural, untouristed Hawaii at its best. More info: Kalani Oceanside Retreat.

Sometimes, we get to take the group to see Madame Pele at her finest!!
