One of the greatest, warmest places that I have had the pleasure to ever stay in. The vibe of the villa was very warm and welcoming. The setup was beautiful and made you feel like you're among family. All residents were extremely nice, and the staff was among the best that I have experienced. The manager took time out of... More

Pros Fantastic location, just a short walk away from the main city and really friendly and helpful staff. Monica was wonderful and always helped address most of our concerns. The meditation teacher was par excellence. Best guided meditation session I've ever had (or rather the only one). The raw food served to us after we broke our fast was brilliant... More

My friend and I signed up for the 5 day detox program and are impressed with the standard. The retreat centre is a beautiful place to stay in! The villas overlook a rice paddy field and you can be guaranteed of fresh air and natural breeze. The detox has been great, with helpful staff, who do their best to accommodate... More

Simply beautiful place to stay. Easy walking to Ubud central. Friendly & helpful staff, yummy fresh Balinese food. Had the pleasure of a huge open air room with a balcony & outdoor shower - just lovely!

We recently had the pleasure of completing our first full 7-day detox with Gaia Retreat and all we can say - it was an amazing and truly unique experience from Day 1 till the moment we had to say good-bye. Though we stayed at the nearby Wapa Di Ume resort for the duration of our detox program, we spent our... More

I could not have imagined a better introduction to Bali than to stay at Villa Gaia on a yoga retreat. It is pleasantly a 20 minute or so walk from town - away from the hustle and bustle of shopping, the Monkey Forest, and foot traffic. Overlooking rice patties with lush greenery for sunrises and sunsets in an open air... More

I stayed at Villa Gaia for five days for a yoga retreat and felt instantly at home, welcomed, and safe. Glenn and his staff do a wonderful job making guests comfortable and the food is by far some of the best you will find in all of Bali! I can be a bit of a food snob and this place... More

I recently had the pleasure of staying six nights at Villa Gaia as part of a yoga retreat, and it was SUCH a special place to kick off my journey in Bali. The villa is beautifully designed - open and airy, with plenty of space to enjoy the company of others and, alternatively, to retreat and find quiet. Each morning... More

I recently ran a retreat at Villa Gaia and the participants and I were blown away by the experience of living, practicing yoga and meditation, and dining there for the week. The bedrooms are beautifully designed and well kept and the salt water pool, sauna and hot tub with panoramic views were fantastic perks. I can say with confidence that... More
