Travel club leaders Mr & Mrs Smith and Atelier Doré partnered for The Art of Self Discovery, the second in a series of exclusive, one-off retreats for couples. Hosted by Garance Doré, the Art of Self Discovery brings couples together with wellness, spirituality and top-notch experiences, held at luxury lodge Alto Atacama in Chile’s stunning Atacama Desert.

Thinking of the movie Mr & Mrs. Smith? Not exactly. Mr & Mrs Smith is the travel club for the luxury hotel lover. The award-winning, boutique hotel-booking service focuses on destinations, experiences and amenities for the ultimate couple’s getaway. While founded in 2003, the collection now holds more than 1,000 luxury boutique hotels in the exclusive community — and now with one more: Alto Atacama, Chile.

Influenced by her own experiences and self discovery, Garance Doré is one of the minds behind The Art of Self Discovery retreat. Keep in mind, this couple’s getaway is one for those who can fully immerse themselves in the wellness world. Think of the retreat as an inspiring wellness journey with your spouse, partner or significant other for a unique way to explore your own mind and physical health with self-care and shared experiences with loved ones.

 Speak to astrology experts, meditation gurus and inspired guests for an all-in experience, or make your own journey with your loved one exploring the luxury resort, second only to the natural beauty surrounding it.

Enjoy a series of educational sessions with on-site experts in everything from meditation and astrology to highly-acclaimed chefs and artists. Head out on fun excursions and enjoy a slew of activities at the resort.

The week-long retreat itinerary has not been finalized for public viewing yet, but here is a sneak peek as to what you and your guest can expect:

  • Early-morning yoga classes
  • One- to two-hour daily sessions with a meditation master
  • Private, half-hour personal readings with a tarot translator and divination expert
  • Group storytelling each evening
  • One half-day trip to the Valley of the Moon to watch the sunset and stargaze
  • A healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner each day as well as unique dining experiences
  • Rest and relaxation at the Alto pool and spa

Add on one complimentary excursion, choosing from stargazing in the open-air observatory, visiting the Ojos del Salar salt flats with an expert guide or touring the resort garden with the lodge’s resident botanist.
