Welcome to our Tantric Couples Retreat in Te Aroha, New Zealand

You are warmly invited as a duet or threesome, to take the opportunity to journey with us… 

Is our romantic couples escape, right for you as a couple?


Tantric Couples Retreat

Looking for a Romantic Escape with a difference? Couples in New Zealand are healing their relationships with our hands on techniques and friendly guidance.

We aren’t about candles and chocolate…our mission is longevity, happiness, mastery and artistry… if you are looking to reconnect and create deeper commitment with your partner, then you have come to the right place. Our tantric couples intimacy retreat has been created for couples that wish to fully focus on each other, and take away some lasting relationship building tools.

Our cosy, intimate retreat is located facing Mount Te Aroha (The Mountain of Love) in a peaceful, rural  environment surrounded by gardens, fruit trees and farm animals.  It is the perfect place to unplug from the world, and refresh while reigniting your passion for one another.  With our down to earth, fun loving guidance, you may explore and creatively integrate the art of Tantra, Eroticism and Conscious Sexuality into your relationship. 

The main intention during your stay with us at our Couples Tantra Retreat is to strengthen, enhance and evolve your existing knowledge base around touch, communication, sexuality, and intimacy as a couple and to create a stronger bond of open hearted, non judgemental acceptance of each other.

Life can get very busy and stressful at times, what with building a career and raising a family, that it is not hard to lose that intimate connection with your partner. 

Making love, may have lost its intensity and passions may have fizzled out.  Our bodies change, and so do our needs.  What turned you on about each other when you first met, has most likely changed too. 


If you are honest with yourself, you may have had some fantasies that you would have liked to explore, but didn’t have the courage to communicate this desire to your beloved.  

Or, you may have a little voice inside of you, wanting more excitement or ecstasy.  But not something that will wreck your relationship, like jumping the fence or taking on a lover.
You may just wish for more juiciness, more play and more pleasure.

take time to explore each others desires, find new pathways of pleasure and expand your erotic intelligence, become an Artist of Love

During your stay you will both have time to connect individually with both Pauline and Murray – clients have found our open hearted discussions very helpful and insightful. There will also be the opportunity to create rituals to express your love for each other, as well as receive a Couples Intimacy Massage, where you will both learn how to give each other an ecstatic, body awakening Tantric massage and be guided to master skills, confidence and awareness to become your partner’s ultimate healer and lover.  

With our gentle guidance and encouragement, you will both learn how to touch each other with complete presence and communicate your most authentic intimate desires without inhibition or fear of judgement.



You may notice holding patterns/belief systems that had previously limited the freedom of the body, mind and spirit, are encouraged to be released, so you may dance freer and live in authenticity.

Imagine yourself and your beloved returning to your life and relationships, more open, renewed, invigorated, empowered and aware of your own juicy, divine life force


The Couples Intimacy Massage is unlike any other experience. Tantric Massage as a couple is the most loving gift you can give each other within a loving relationship. It has been proven to enhance and restore intimacy, and elevates your commitment to each other to an even higher more “open hearted” level.

The Tantric Couples Retreat...

Journey with us & explore the many pathways of erotic intelligence... Experience great food, good tunes, happy vibes and open hearted conversations on sex, love, life, naturism, eroticism, kink and tantra.

  • Couples of all genders are most welcome
  • Available as single or multi-day stay retreats
  • Ask for a personal quotation
  • It is important to me that I get to know a little about you both.  
  • Before booking your retreat, I would like to connect with you and find out about your individual needs as well as your needs as a couple. (Please phone me to make a time to discuss) Please understand that all information shared with me is confidential.
  • For our rituals and time together to flow peacefully, it is important that you both wish to participate. Surprising your beloved with a Couples Intimacy Retreat may be your desire, but if it is not his/hers too, you may be destroying, rather than creating something beautiful – So it is very important to be able to communicate openly with your partner.
  • As a couple you are not massaged simultaneously, you are “involved” in each session of honouring your partner and/or witnessing them in their experience of receiving pleasure. 
  • Our massage sessions are very hands on, intimate and erotic experiences – and have been curated to improve your connection and communication with each other. 
  • They are not intended to be voyeur sessions OR swinging sessions,  – they can be seen as a Tantric Couples Coaching Sessions, where breathwork, and Kundalini energy is moved around the body. 
  • You will be guided each step of the way to hold space for each other and create a ritualistic lovemaking experience though touch and open heart space

The Tantric Couples retreat - is for you if you need...

release tension in the relationship

Learn ways of connecting mindfully and from an open heart space. Learning about how Tantra can be included into your relationship and how to perform The Couples Intimacy Massage, at our Tantric Couples Retreat is really beneficial to loosening the tension between partners.

to relax and have a bloody good massage

In my opinion, there is nothing better than receiving a massage with your beloved and everything is focused on your pleasure...

to communicate your own needs to your partner

The Couples Intimacy Massage is the perfect way to show your partner exactly how you need to be loved up, in a fun, safe, non judgemental space

more time is needed to get it right

If you are serious about your relationship and getting it right. The Tantric Couples Retreat is the perfect way to escape from the world, and fully focus on creating magic with each other.

Communication is a super important key ingredient in having truly loving, honest and authentic relationships, yet we are so afraid to speak our truth to the ones that we love. The energy shifts that happen during our sessions and retreats encourages you to find your voice again

to reconnect with your beloved

It's not hard to lose touch with your partner when you both work hard, have a family and normal stresses. This session is a beautiful way to reconnect.

to learn how to create lovemaking rituals

Our retreats are experiencial, and you will learn how to create the perfect embodied and authentic sensual experience for your partner.

a safer way to open the relationship

Before taking the plunge and going open with your relationship, or having a threesome, check in first with our Tantric Couples Retreat to learn the art of conscious communication, and do the strength test...you will know over a period of days whether your relationship is strong enough to share with others

Mr & Mrs X, experience of our Tantric Couples Retreat...

This morning I rang for a catch up with Pauline, I know that phone conversation never goes as it would with any other person.  When Pauline asks, “how’s life”, what she is really meaning is, “have you had good orgasms lately to release the endorphins that you need for healing”.

This might be a funny way to start a conversation, but once you get to know Pauline and Murray, it’s not that funny at all and you really do find yourself opening up about how you are feeling and also getting a small lecture, a friendly one, but a lecture none the less!  “HAVE MORE TOUCH, USE YOUR VIBRATOR, RELEASE THE ENDORPHINS WITH AN ORGASM”

Tell me, who else in the world would tell you that you need to orgasm more…… and also tell you if you can’t orgasm with your husband, then do it alone while he is at work and the kids are at school?

Body Issues…

Now, I have some pretty serious body issues, physically and mentally.  I am a size 20 and dread looking in the mirror.  I have not been abused in any way at any time in my life, so I do wonder why I have the issues regarding sex, touch and intimacy.  Maybe I was brought up too proper??  And it was never spoken about or was told to cover up?  I don’t know….

What I do know, and Pauline will bring this up in me whenever we talk, is that I need to be touched more often, I need to be played with and it needs to be fun! 

A while ago, we had a session with Pauline, and also Murray this time.  It was a little strange for us as a couple as we have never done anything like this before.  First was my husband’s turn.  Although he very much enjoyed being blindfolded and touched he couldn’t reach the climax, but Pauline told him that is fine, and he enjoyed the mystery of the situation in the safe haven of Pauline’s rooms in Te Aroha.  The room was all set up beautifully.  Candles, comfort and the scene set for touch and healing. 

For me, putting the head phones on with lovely music and the blind fold was so exciting!  And I can honestly say having a six handed massage was a first for me!  But WOW!  It was incredible!  Pauline taught my husband (Mr X) how to touch me and how to pleasure me. 

A range of emotions then came of course, as I had hardly laid bare for my husband like that and now I was not only laying bare for him, but also Murray and Pauline!  It was exciting, frightening, exhilarating and terrifying, but most of all it was just pure amazing pleasure! 

Having my breasts massaged by four hands while someone else was massaging my inner thighs was just sensory overload, but in the best way possible! 

Murray and Pauline, you keep doing what you are doing.  The way you are helping couples and individuals is invaluable.  Conventional therapies don’t work for everyone, and yes what you do is not conventional.  But who can say they went to their therapist and came out with full body jelly and an incredible climax and release.  I have now done both counselling and Pauline’s therapy, and I can tell you which I would prefer going forward!  And it will be the one that gives me emotional and physical pleasure at the same time!

Love your work beautiful people, see you soon xxxoooxxx

A Review

Hi there Pauline and Murray We remain very appreciative of the time and good energy you shared with us when we came to stay with you. We’ve talked about it often and you’ve influenced us for good. Thanks to you we got to experience the KNP and see that there’s nothing scary about nice social naturism. We also have you both to thank for sharing your great attitude to getting naked with us in the spa and chatting. As well as the way you went about encouraging us to try same room play in front of another couple. We know all of these things seem so tame to more experienced folk but they were positive experiences for us when we stayed with you both. We’ve now got a large cedar hot tub where we can host others for nights under the stars soaking in the hot water. Finally, we’ve been inspired by your cabin/couples retreat building and are now designing one ourselves. We think it will be a beautiful space for intimacy. So thank you ☺️ Here’s to a great 2020 for you both. If you’re coming our way and want to catch up do let us know. Best, C&K

Couples Intimacy Retreat

It is quite normal to feel vulnerable when receiving any kind of massage therapy. As a practitioner, I am acutely aware of the need to make my clients feel comfortable. I pride myself on having an easy going, non-judgmental manner that hopefully, puts people at ease quite quickly.  I am sure you will love the experience of freedom that bodywork brings about.

This will depend on the session chosen. Therapeutic and Sacred sessions are full clothed.  Certain full body massage/loving touch/mini-surrender or the  longer tantric sessions that require two way touch or skin on skin contact for deeper intimacy may require a naturist approach. However the options will be discussed with you before the session begins.

Full Service (sexual intercourse) is not a service that is included in our practice.  However we do believe that you may have a most enjoyable, liberating and fun time receiving the session that is created for you.

Mindful touch and total presence is encouraged during any full body massage/loving touch/mini-surrender or tantric session. However each person involved in the session (both client/s and therapist/s) will be encouraged to speak consciously about their personal needs/boundaries/fears/desires prior to the session commencing.

Hugs are great.  However, we understand that some people may have boundaries around touch.  So permission is always asked rather than assuming that a person would enjoy a hug.

Yoni is a sanskrit word for Vulva/Vagina/Pussy – according to tantric philosophy the Yoni is the source of all that exists and represent Shakti and Devi, the creative force that moves throughout the entire universe.

Lingam is a sanskrit word for Penis – loosely translated as the Wand of Light that channels creative energy and pleasure.

Full Body Massage also known as Loving Touch or Sacred Sensual Massage.  This is a sensual awakening session, in which the client is nude, and the entire body is massaged, including in men the penis and prostate and in women, the yoni and breasts. It is a complete massage with every body part included unless specifically requested otherwise.

A Stress Management Massage is a therapeutic bodywork experience that includes the whole body minus the genitals.  It does however include breasts and buttocks, as well as reflexology to face, feet and hands and unwinding of the belly.

The Mini-Surrender session is a shorter, entry level sensation building session that allows the client to dip their toes into BDSM whereas the Absolute Surrender Session is a deeper dive that includes role play and significant fetish and fantasy implementation.

No, Kissing is fluid exchange, and a high risk behaviour that could  spread STD’s. Therefore it is not encouraged. Unless of course you are attending a Couples Intimacy Session, then kissing is encouraged between people that share a fluid bond. 

If you are feeling like it is time to start feeling great again and reconnect with yourself, boost your self confidence as well as your immune system, de-stress and receive some beautiful loving bodywork, I encourage you to call me to book some time to nurture yourself, so that you too may start enjoying your life with bliss, love & anticipation.
