I felt the need to run away from home over the holidays, so I booked a seven night package at Gaia. I arrived in the middle of a rainstorm, after a long night of travel from the U.S., and upon being greeted by the General Manager Leanna, I had the feeling that I have been welcomed home. Gaia is a... More

Wonderfully wonderful. Gaia is what they say they are. Tranquil and real, beautiful and gentle in every way. The staff surreal, the meals and atmosphere all blend, unite and exude true balance and serenity. Three days was just right. From morning to night all the same mood and pleasant surrounding was enough to detach me from normal daily life and... More

Once again we had a truly amazing time at Gaia over the holiday period. From the food, the treatments, the accommodation - all incredible! We had private yoga every day with Danielle and we wanted to put her in our suitcase and bring her home with us she was so amazing. Already looking forward to our next visit.....T & G...

This is a review of the spa, not the accommodation. World class treatments. They lose a point because the therapist asked my mother during her treatment why she didn't have grandchildren, did her children have an unhappy childhood? What an odd thing to say and although I am sure it was not intentional the implication you can imagine was drawn... More

1 year later, we return for a week of rest, relaxation, and recharge. Was not disappointed. Food still exceptional. Spa staff exceptional. Office staff always helpful and with a smile. Restaurant staff excellent. Never tire of the vista. The gym is a gem with a view. Rooms ( sura terraces ) are clean and comfortable, the bed excellent, the en-suite... More

Having practised yoga for 10 years but still working in a stressful and demanding job, I was looking to recharge in a yoga retreat. I am not a resort type person where one is expected to dress for breakfast, lunch and dinner, so I was reluctant to go to a ‘health resort’. I then found ‘Gaia Retreat’. The 5 days... More

Gaia is the perfect place to go to unwind. It's set amongst green, rolling hills, and you feel as if you're in the middle of the country side. The food is superb, fresh and healthy, and there is plenty if it, you will never be hungry. The staff are amazing, calm and friendly, it's as if they encapsulate what the... More

My husband and I have just had the most amazing four days at this truly wonderful Retreat. My husband booked this as a surprise for our wedding anniversary. We were fortunate enough to have stayed in one of the new 'Komala' suites that has its own plunge pool and magnificent views over the valley. The property is kept in pristine... More

I have stayed at Gaia on two occassion's, loved the first experience so much that I went back with my husband a week later. Unfortunately, but thankfully it was during my last meal, that I turned a lettuce leaf over on my plate and a slug stretched itself out nice and long. I took my plate to the serving hatch... More

Dear Ange Thank you for your feedback, hard for us to follow up as it has been one year since this happened. Our chefs and team are very diligent in the preparation and handling of all food. I assure you, as the chef would have at the time, that salad ingredients whether coming from an outside source or our own... More
