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

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
