All the meals were spectacular, extremely tasteful... More

My mother and I had the best time at Gaia. We are both well travelled and have never stayed somewhere with such a warm and welcoming atmosphere with a very personal touch. The food is amazingly good and there is an absolute abundance of it. Could not fault out stay. Book now!

This is my second stay at Gaia and the welcome guests receive on arrival is surpassed only by the welcome you get on the second visit. Gaia is for me that one place where guests are pampered yet you have plenty of space to just chill. The rooms are excellent, The staff are fantastic and to see the same faces... More

Gaia Retreat lived up to its reputation. The property is set back into its own world not far away from the activity of the Byron and Lennox. On arrival all details and requests are taken seriously and the meal requirements are followed to the letter. We thoroughly enjoyed the service from all staff and the Spa facilities were also amazing.... More

Gaia is a wonderful experience. I had high expectations given other people's feedback and Gaia's marketing, in addition to the price. But, my expectations were surpassed. The natural setting is physically beautiful and the accommodation is peaceful and relaxing. The staff were kind, courteous, and helpful. The food was delicious. We did the pilates and yoga classes and thoroughly enjoyed... More

3 night package was absolutely amazing. Very impressed with the attention to detail and the available facilities. The 2 day spa experiences were wonderful. Really enjoyed trying out the organic food and drink. I would highly recommend this facility and would go back again in a heartbeat.
