Love Wins! Exclusive Retreat for LGBT Couples Soul2Soul welcomes you to this unique opportunity designed to create healthier relationships. Love Wins! is a weekend-long couple retreat that combines LGBTQ+ specific coaching with a luxurious resort experience. About this event: Couples, be honest--Do you feel like you and your partner are speaking different languages? Are you more like roommates than lovers? Can't find the middle ground between penny-pinching and splurging? Struggling to thrive as an LGBTQ Couple in a heterocentric world? Ever wish your relationship came with a "How To" Manual? You're not alone. Even if you've been together since before "Netflix and Chill" was a thing, creating a successful partnership is challenging. But just because improving your relationship requires work, doesn't mean it has to be hard. Love Wins! is a fun, interactive weekend retreat designed to help you identify and correct the core issues plaguing your relationship so you can live a happier, healthier life together. During the retreat, you and your partner will learn how to Communicate using the Rosetta Stone of Relationships-the love languages. Crank up the heat in the bedroom. Reach a happy money medium. Manage stressors unique to LGBTQ couples. Create a vision board to plan your #couplegoals and how to get there. Most importantly, you'll feel butterflies again when you think about the person you've spent your life with.
The St. Regis Mexico City rises 31 stories above the famed Paseo de la Reforma. The lobby décor is elegant, understated and compliments the striking modern architecture. It is easy to see why this posh hotel recently topped the list of Travel & Leisure’s “Top 5 City Hotels in Mexico (2021)”.

The 189 spacious guest rooms and suites feature plush bedding, pristine marble bathrooms and floor-to-ceiling windows. The Deluxe King guest room is decorated in a vibrant Sonoran style with warm woods and soft colors. Guests also enjoy the renowned butler service, which is available any time, day or night, to fulfill whatever request that you may desire.
Guests can schedule time at hotel’s The Remede Spa. Included in Spas of America’s list of the “Top 100 Spas of 2019”, the Remede offers a number of treatments and therapies designed to relax and replenish.
The St. Regis offers six dining options. Three of our favorites are the Bloom Garden, which is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, offering al fresco dining in a warm atmosphere surrounded by beautiful flowers, aromatic herbs, and wooden pergolas. La Table Krug offers an 8-course dining masterpiece, paired with Krug champagne, and is one of the most innovative and exclusive French restaurants in Mexico City. Finally, we love the King Cole Bar, where you can indulge in a St. Regis tradition, their unique version of the Bloody Mary.
Winner of the AAA Five Diamond Award (2019), The St. Regis Mexico City provides guests respite from the stressors of daily life. Located in the heart of the historic core and close to the city’s most tony neighborhoods, including Polanco, Roma and Condesa, The St. Regis is also walking distance to popular shops, prominent museums, tony art galleries, and some of the city’s finest restaurants.
