Reviewed October 5, 2013

I recently hosted a yoga retreat at Villa Gaia and I was overwhelmed with the level of care & attention to detail there. The staff are like angels, thinking of everything before I had a chance to and making my whole experience easy - I could really relax and get on with what I was there for. All of the participants were extremely happy - Gaia is an oasis, everybody's needs were met and there was no need to go out for anything. The food was mind blowing - even the fussiest adults and children were looked after and the in house massage was excellent to. I will be going back for sure. thanks Villa Gaia!

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are a bit smaller and slightly less fancy so depends on what you are after. 2 room...

Villa Gaia is an amazing retreat and event center. The Balinese staff and the owner Glenn go out of their way to make you feel right at home. The space is beautiful, serene, and peaceful with amazing views. The food is delicious and healthy. It has been a special treat to be a guest here and attend the many diverse and mindful events that are hosted at this incredible center. I look forward to hosting my own events here in the future! Thank you Villa Gaia family for everything you do!

We had an amazing stay at Gaia Retreat Center - not only were the accommodations beautiful, but the breakfasts were delicious and the Widhi and the entire staff were so kind and thoughtful. We absolutely loved it and will definitely return.

What I love about Gaia retreat center is the wonderful, loving Balinese staff, the owner Glenn who is loving and so helpful and the beautiful view of the rice paddies from the kitchen and main living area.
I have held 2 workshops here and am always treated like royalty by the staff. They go over and above anywhere else I've traveled in Bali and they now feel like a family to me.
The atmosphere is quiet and peaceful and the swimming pool and hot tub are divine.
If you are just staying for a short stay, or a long one (like I did) I highly recommend Gaia as your lodging.

I stayed at Villa Gaia for over 2 transformational months, and it was one of the most profound experiences and times of my life. I learned so much, was inspired and awakened by the grace and offerings in this space. Villa Gaia is a rich and inspiring resort in the heart of Bali, exceptional pure alkaline water, spa services, rejuvenation and relaxation facility. The perfect space to deepen a yoga practice, teach yoga, and host guests for Yoga, breath work, group, or personal transformational trainings and experiences. I choose this facility as the number one destination in Ubud to host an event that can any of the following themes : Gourmet Organic Raw Foods, Juice Fasting, Detox support, Ayurvedic or Vegetarian cuisine. The staff are exceptionally trained by chef's and teachers from around the world, provide caring, warm, friendly, and personal attention with joy and enthusiasm, and became my friends and family. I would highly recommend Villa Gaia as a premier facility to host events or even to stay while visiting Ubud. The facility is fantastic. The view expansive and refreshing, the accessibility to town is epic, and the rooms offer a wide variety of selection and price points. I loved the master bedroom and the deep bath tubs, outdoor showers with nature, and open casual dining and seating area. Villa Gaia was built with love, family, integrity, and a commitment to well-being, divinity, and a dedication to supporting and empowering an enriching life of natural health at the core. This place is Heart, Soul, Splendor and Exceptional.. A must feel experience in Bali! Thank you Glen and Villa Gaia for hosting this jewel in the lotus!

From the moment I walked in, I felt at home, in some ways more at home than I have felt before, Comfort, beauty,privacy… and of course a wonderful host and staff ready to serve all of your needs… I would recommend this place for a night, week, a retreat, or even just a visit. Occasionally holding community gatherings and 1st class teachers from around the world. A sure fit for those seeking peace and/or a place to simply relax. You don't find all this in one at home style luxury villa. Hot tub, Infared Sauna, Excellent cooking staff including vast knowledge of health foods and treatments, Pool, View, what more can I say… "Perfect!"

Villa Gaia is a beautiful place, in its aesthetics and in the heartfelt ambiance there. Glen is a kind, gracious and inclusive host and i fully enjoyed both times we had a Living Love Workshop evening there. its more than a venue, its a place we felt at home, relaxed and inspired.
