Gaia Retreat really is a little slice of heaven. Beautifully maintained gardens, orchids and walking tracks are home to a stunning array of birds, that paired with the sound of tranquil running water, lend their songs to the soundtrack that is Gaia retreat. This peaceful setting is only enhanced by the friendly and relaxed staff at the property. There are... More

Recently my gorgeous husband bought me a voucher at this beautiful paradise on earth. I have been going on and off over the past decade and it delivers every time. This time I had a 3 hour indulgence of body scrub in the steam room followed by a full body mud wrap and a blissful massage all done by an... More

This is my third stay at Gaia and I will keep coming back. My day starts at 7.30 with a gentle yoga class, then a heavenly breakfast followed by a walk and reading a book on the deck overlooking a tropical paradise. Maybe a gluten free muffin - today is banana and chocolate - to go with my herbal tea.... More

I recently stayed at Gaia retreat in a small group with three other ladies, and have been plotting to return as soon as possible ever since! It was suggested by the wonderful www.alluxia.com as the perfect getaway for unwinding from the stresses of everyday life and it certainly was. The staff could not have been more helpful and lovely, from... More

The most amazing day of pleasure ! A whole day of lush pampering for only $155 for both a luxurious massage and a tasty healthy lunch in the Pavilion Restaurant. The use of all of the retreats spa, pool and sauna facilities and the most friendliest and competent therapists, made this day one I will never forget. This is a... More

Stayed for a long overdue long weekend escape - Gaia is exceptional. All inclusive - the food, the Spa - best massage ever and the feeling of a true escape was worth every cent. Thank you to the team who were there when you needed and left you be when you needed. Extraordinary.

Spent a whole week at Gaia, and although it mostly rained found it to be a great relaxation experience. When I finally got up on time for yoga I thoroughly enjoyed the experience especially with Claire who can only be described as an inspiration. The food was fabulous and I didn't enjoy only one meal so why even bothering mentioning... More

We were both exhausted! Gaia fills you full of goodness. The staff therapists food and facilities were incredible. Gaia is calming and relaxing, the surrounds are set in the most spectacular lush environment and really only minutes to Byron Bay Beach.

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
