Wonderful staff who exceeded my expectations. The accommodation met every need with beautiful surroundings and so peaceful. Food was delicious and nutritious. A wonderful birthday experience for me. I will be back.

Then you should go here. Some details: * if you fly in to Ballina airport they will organise airport transfers. I realized when I got to Ballina I didn't have the details of where I should meet the transfer etc. no worries, when I turned my phone back on after the flight there was already a voicemail from the driver...

You could not ask for anything more from the beautiful Gaia Retreat. I have been to numerous retreat spaces around the world and this is the most beautiful in it's design, natural surroundings and it's culture. The magical and spiritual energy of Byron Bay pervade the interactions with staff and practitioners in a gentle subtle but also non-invasive way. There... More

I recently spent 3 nights at this beautiful location with my mother and daughter. We each wanted to refresh and relax for different reasons and each found that sense of calm and serenity that we were seeking. The location is beautiful, the staff incredibly focused on meeting our every need and from the time we woke up to the sounds... More

What a wonderful place! For those considering a stay at Gaia we would unequivocally recommend it. This is not a boot camp health retreat - it is a combination of a wonderful location, fantastically presented local organic food (with a glass of wine if you choose) and the kindest people caring for you during your stay, from the owners to...

I recently spent 3 nights at Gaia by myself for some healing and pampering. I absolutely loved it. I stayed in the Acala 1 suite which was very comfortable and the private spa was great of an evening to lie back in and stare up at the stars. The food! The food was delicious, I enjoyed every single dish and... More

We spent 3 nights (not long enough) at this special place. It has been 4 years since my last visit and all I can say is the experience was sensational. All of the team at Gaia are so warm and friendly. We also visited the spa which is a place of serenity and the massage was a highlight, executed by... More

Went there for well needed rest, relaxation and to de-stress. The whole time there I was nurtured and pampered. You could do as much or as little of the daily activities as you wanted without the pressure. The whole 4 days from the hello to the goodbye was a truly amazing experience. there was nothing to fault. The staff were... More

Gaia absolutely exceeded the lofty expectations I had prior to my stay. The location is unbelievable and it's impossible NOT to relax and unwind. The staff are fabulous and all seem to embrace the Gaia ethos. Even the GM - Gregg - personally welcomes you upon arrival which is a fantastic touch. All staff follow this lead and take great...
