Just left Gaia after my husband and i spent 3 nights. Breathtaking location in the mountains of a nature reserve. We wished we had a rental car but you can get by without if you are only staying 2-3 days. If you do rent, get a 4 wheel drive vehicle ( with insurance). The last hour leading up the mountain is very rocky. We did 1 excursion and it was nice but a little pricey for what it was.
Our room was beautiful, a little hot during the day (ceiling fan) but you didn't spend much time indoors during daylight anyways. There is wifi in the lodge but not in the rooms. No tv anywhere so you really become one with nature and disconnect which you are staying here. Much cooler at night which was a welcome relief after hiking all day. We mostly spent our time down at the waterfall and exploring the grounds (nature trail and big rock falls nearby).
We really enjoyed the food, 5 choices at every meal, also dinner always had a special : a new appetizer and entree to choose from. The staff was very attentive: Oswald and Yassar tool care of us at every meal. We did venture to Coppola's resort 10 minutes down the road, Blancanaeux's italian restaurant was wonderful. Nice change of scenery and They had delicious wine and brick oven pizzas.
Definitely a great experience.
