Welcome to Esclusiva

Here at Esclusiva, we are focused on creating superior level wellness retreats aimed at emotionally intelligent couples.

Our retreats are geared towards couples who want to explore themselves and their relationship with their partner through a journey that builds trust and understanding which in turn supports a more fulfilling connection.

Those who choose to participate in our retreats would describe their relationship as a healthy one but are looking for the tools and techniques used by couples in the most successful relationships to navigate through the ups and downs that life can present.

Introducing

Introducing Kendra

Kendra Capalbo is a qualified therapist who has a thriving couples counselling practice in the State of Rhode Island. Even before studying professional therapy, Kendra has been interested in the dynamic between couples and what makes some relationships blossom whilst others struggle. Kendra and her team have spent many years developing their vision for a luxury couples holiday with added benefits. So you get to relax and detox as a couple, spend that illusive quality time together and, at the same time, invest in how to support each other emotionally, physically and with an understanding that gives you the ability to significantly enrich your relationship. Particularly when you return to your busy lives.

Introducing Kendra

Kendra Capalbo is a licensed therapist with a thriving, elite couples therapy practice in New England. Out of a desire to marry her two greatest passions – working with couples and travel – she created Esclusiva Global Retreats. While her practice allows her to focus on the problems that can arise in relationships, she also feels inspired to help couples who are already doing well on their own to reach a heightened level of relationship satisfaction. She recognizes the impact of the ambition tax on the relationships of highly successful couples. Consequently, Esclusiva was created as an opportunity to maximize time by combining relaxation while actively working on improving one’s relationship. A firm believer that our romantic relationships are the nucleus of our lives, Kendra believes in the power of investing in those relationships as a key to overall success in life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Based on our experience we have put together answers to the most commonly asked questions. If you don’t find the question you have here, please email us through the contact form and we will reply promptly. If you feel a general discussion about our retreats would be more helpful, please let us know and we will schedule a call.

We understand that a group environment is not for everyone and that’s why we have created our Individual Couples Retreats which you may find more appealing.

To get the most out of the retreat, you would absolutely need to share with your partner but not necessarily with the group. If you do decide to share with the group, you won’t be required to share anything you are uncomfortable sharing. There will be plenty of opportunities to share in less vulnerable ways.

We welcome all couples who are seeking an environment to improve their relationship.

If you have arrived at a place in your therapy where you are continuing sessions as an investment in the relationship then you will find our retreats a helpful environment to further invest in your continuing development as a team and individually. If however you are in a major crisis then this is not the environment to deal with issues that would be better handled in a counseling environment.

Per couple, please inquire regarding the fee to bring additional partners if you are in a polyamorous relationship.

There will be an optional activity each morning at 7:30 followed by breakfast at 8:30, end times vary based on the day.
