Weekend Getaways

The Weekend to Remember is an outstanding, highly professional, weekend getaway for couples. Whether married or not, it may help get you out of a rut and take your relationship to a new level. It will reinforce the importance that your marriage has on your physical, emotional, and spiritual life.

Why not push back from your busy life and spend just one weekend to focus on the most important relationship of your life - your marriage.  You'll be so glad you did.

Get away and enjoy the atmosphere of a luxury hotel retreat, and uninterrupted time together to just walk and talk.  No work, no phones, no children!

 FamilyLife’s getaways offer couples proven, practical help and a safe environment to work on their relationship, free from distractions.  You won’t be put on the spot or asked to participate with others. Just one-on-one focus for you both to thrive today - and 10 ... 20 ... 30 years from today.

Time together just for the two of you.

Since 1990 more than 20,000 New Zealanders have attended with incredible results. Many will tell you it's the best weekend since their honeymoon.    Reviews
