Villa Gaia sets the bench mark for luxury that others can only aspire to. What sets Villa Gaia apart is their attention to detail. On arrival, I was greeted by the scent of sweet-smelling freesias placed just outside my room. Inside, there were more pretty flowers sitting on the table. My bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. It was like sleeping on a cloud. They have found the delicate balance of a deliciously, soft topper and a semi firm mattress underneath, that gives a perfect sleep. The pure cotton linen was of the highest quality and so soft to touch, and the mosquito netting was of the finest cotton, not made of synthetic material, as is so often found in other villas. The staff were all solicitous, kind and always willing to help in any way. They kept the whole place spotless, especially the floors, and maintain the whole property to the highest standards. My room was cleaned every day and my bed made beautifully. I loved the pool and the sauna, and the open plan living room with lots of comfortable seating, so suitable for indoor/outdoor living, and which allows for the cooling breezes to blow through. It gives an incredible view of the pool and the green palm trees and forest beyond. The new A/C unit in my bedroom was completely inaudible when the fan was turned off, the quietest I have ever heard, and maintained the coolness of the room perfectly. The air in the room was not overly dry as I have experienced in other accommodation. The atmosphere was quiet, peaceful and relaxed. There was fresh water, ginger, tea, coffee, another teas available all day. Everywhere I looked, there was evidence of awareness around the disposal of rubbish, recycling, leaving a minimal carbon footprint, and consideration and care for other guests. Do I recommend it? Yes, absolutely. You will not be disappointed in the staff, accommodation and facilities. …

Villa Gaia is such a relaxing, beautiful und soul fullfilling accommodation. All the people that are working there are super kind, have a big heart and help you with everything you ask for. The rooms are cozy, have a beautiful furniture and makes me feel like home. The outdoor area with the big shala and the sound of the river is my most favorite. Thank you so much to the owner, Glenn for making my stay so beautiful and relaxed! So looking forward to come back πŸ™πŸ½

I was unsure what to expect for my first detox retreat ever. Picked up at the airport with a bottle of fresh coconut water and some protein snacks- was a great first impression and I knew I was in the right place. The centre is a truly beautifully balinese style building- with open air kitchen and views across the beautiful Ubud landscape. Walking up to the birds and water and view every morning was priceless - I had the terrace room and I could just sit there forever and never tire of that view, beds fixed and rooms cleaned everyday. The attentiveness of the staff was also special- you are given an itinerary to follow and everything was just so easy. Meals waiting for you, driver (Kadek) ready to take you wherever you needed to go, therapist ready to greet you- very organised. Enough balance between your own time and treatments. All treatments were wonderful (even the scary first - colonic irrigation- I was made to feel relaxed and comfortable and I felt everything was very professional) The food was incredible- Comang is an excellent chef!! (I choose the light cleanse and even decided to have juice only for 1-2 days as there was an abundance of food- next time I will def do the deep cleanse) Agung was a perfect host and even went out of her way to help me further on my healing journey - by introducing me to some local Balinese healers. I really felt this added to my healing journey and overall Bali experience. I was treated incredible with such friendly staff and really felt safe at a time in my life where I was a little fragile and scared. I would recommend Gaia retreat to anyone who wants to take that first step into detoxing- I feel so much better for it and will continue to do a detox's whenever I can. Terima Kashi Gaia Rereat xxxx…

I attended a raw vegan detox retreat here in early 2019. From the moment I entered the property there was a calmness that took over my entire being. The grounds are nestled in Ubud jungle and are kept authentic and clean. The staff and the service they provide is what made this experience life-changing. Every single need or want is tended to. Want a massage? Want freshly prepared cuisine? Want to tour a temple? Want to take a Botony walk and learn about Bali naturally occuring herbs? Want to take a cooking class? Not only were my needs met, but they were so good with informing us about culture and expectations. This saved (me in particular) any embarrassment from not knowing these things as I entered temple, or walked through the rice fields, or embarked on a ritual purification at a Balinese water temple. By the end of my trip, I was emotional leaving my new Balinese family at Gaia. I cannot wait to see them all again!…

Hosting our retreat at Gaia was a true gift in every sense of the word! From the moment we stepped in, we were all held as true family in this home away from home – that feeling helped our guests go so deep in their process and helped to facilitate a magical experience. From the beautiful rooms, AMAZING food, wonderful endless support from the staff... and all the little touches that helped make our retreat so magical... I just can't say enough about our experience with the Gaia family. Thanks to the passion and care of their team, Jen and I were able to focus fully on facilitating the experience we came to create. Any concerns from the guests were met immediately with proactive response and a true sense of care. The facilities are gorgeous – we loved our daily workshops in the shala (with a gorgeous handmade flower mandala as a beautiful touch!) The warmth and love brought from every staff member here is unmatched. A huge highlight was the vibrant meals made with love by Made and the wonderful kitchen staff - I can't recommend Gaia enough for hosting an unforgettable retreat. So much love to the Gaia family!! <3…

I stayed at Gaia Retreat Center for a retreat over New years and had an exceptional time. The staff was super friendly, they cared for us lovingly and made it an overall great stay. The rooms and facilities are wonderfully decorated with an eye for detail. The location is perfect. Just outside of Ubud where you can escape the busy vibe but just a 5-10min ride away if you need anything. I would definitely recommend staying at Gaia and am looking forward to come back!

Having spent 10 days at Gaia retreat center, I can only say - this is a truly amazing place, it totally acceded my expectations! I chose to go for deep cleanse juice detox. Apart from nourishing and tasty juices, the package includes all kinds of massages, spa & Ubud sightseeing tours Though the detox itself was challenging in the end, it very much helped me reboot my system & regulate sleep. The place itself is truly an island of paradise, the rooms are spacious and beautifully designed. Most importantly, the staff of the retreat center was fantastic, I've never received such an amazing care and support! One thing I would suggest is to consider: have an onsite nutritionist who can support clients throughout deep/light cleanse, as well as provide more personalised advice on how to maintain healthy and well-balanced diet. Many thanks, Vila Gaia, I will certainly come back!…
