Quintess members use 5 base plan membership nights, plus $400 per diem, per person, based on single occupancy in one room. DUO members use 10 base plan membership nights, plus $400 per diem, per person, based on single occupancy in one room.

Based on the member feedback, Quintess will either offer the same yoga retreat in St. Martin in 2012, or create an experience for couples to enjoy together.
