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!

After traveling for 4 consecutive months, I arrived to Bali feeling defeated. I was really worried that I was not going to give Bali a fair chance because I was ready to go home. To combat that feeling, I decided to do a retreat! I quickly decided that I wanted to do a juice detox and after some thorough researching, I knew I wanted to go with GAIA Retreat because they seemed to have offered the most for my money! Due to my procrastination, their only availability was one week sooner than desired, but I didn’t want to give up the opportunity, so I took it. From the moment they pick you up to the moment they drop you off, you are very well pampered! I appreciated that my scheduled was planned out for me from day one with plenty of free time to do my own thing. Some of the guests made arrangements to go into town to explore, but I spent my entire stay at the retreat basking in some very much needed alone time! There was so much to do! From daily yoga, daily massages, swimming in the pool, sitting in the sauna, daily juices and soups, colonics and hikes, I never got bored! I was also lucky enough to meet the owner and his family and join them in a Christmas fire ceremony. The juices were delicious and I never felt hungry for long. There was never a shortage of drinks. I found myself struggling to keep up! Also on my last full day I requested to do the light cleanse because I wanted to try the food. It looked so amazing and it WAS (and that’s coming from someone who lovessss food!) The staff was also very lovely! They were all very kind and accommodating of any changes or requests I made! Overall the facility was clean minus some bugs here and there, but that is to be expected when you’re surrounded by the nature. I am so thankful for this retreat because it has restored my energy for Bali! I have two and a half weeks left and I cannot wait to immerse myself in this beautiful island and kickstart 2020 on a good note! Thank you GAIA! If you are looking for somewhere to let go, unwind, and relax while detoxing, GAIA is the place to be! I highly recommend!
