Couples retreats at
Rasayana Cove are customized to meet your needs. Experience Ayurveda in a
beautiful natural setting.
Couples retreats offer an opportunity to enjoy a slower pace with comfort
and rest while delighting in the sights and sounds of a beautiful natural
setting. Rasayana Cove is located in central Florida amid cattle ranches
and orange groves. The retreat property borders wilderness Horse Creek
where we sometimes see deer, wild turkey, many water birds, and playful otters. Since there are no
neighbors on 3 sides of the property the night skies are brilliant with stars.
We co-create with you a customized program that will address both of your
health needs. All your Ayurvedic treatments are performed in a private
treatment room located inside the couples cabin. Our massage oils are of
the highest quality, prepared by Ayurvedic doctors in herbal pharmacies in Kerala, India. Here at Rasayana Cove we specialize in
traditional methods of presenting each treatment program. Whereas the
American spa industry has incorporated Ayurvedic treatments for a fast
paced culture, we ask clients to set aside time for their healing journey
to experience authentic Ayurveda and to receive lasting results.
Since we do not receive more than one couple and one single person at any
one time we can offer personalized attention to our clients. This allows an
opportunity to learn details about your Ayurvedic constitution and acquire
the knowledge of cooking for you and your partner's specific health needs.
Each day the noon dinner is shared in the main house and there is time to
speak about Ayurveda as it applies to your family. Breakfasts are
delivered to your cabin where you can rest in bed if you wish. Evening
meals are enjoyed in the privacy of your cabin on the hand hewn mahogany
table. The cabin includes a fridge, stove top to prepare teas, and a
We welcome the opportunity to receive couples wanting to renew their
relationship. The presence of an abiding Spirit in the woods and waterways, and a ritual
at the sacred fire place acts to create a memorable sharing for a couple
seeking to revitalize their union.
