The kahunais now my favourite treatment and Gaia excel. please try it out! The only small negative is that it isnt really set up for people that need to go elsewhere...

The food was fantastic . Very Inventive , flavoursome and presented beautifully. Staff were great and very attentive. I felt the retreats activities could have...

I visited with my mum for the day for the day spa and stayed for lunch. From the moment you walk in to the retreat it is so serene that you feel like you need to whisper. Such a beautiful setting and design with real attention to detail. I had the detox package which was heavenly followed by a vegetarian...

I had the most fabulous 5 day stay at Gaia. From the moment I arrived , I was treated so very well . The accommodation was peaceful and appropriate to the magnificent countryside. The food was absolutely the most delicious I have enjoyed anywhere in the world. Being GF and DF, the meals are usually compromised but everyone is catered...

We had the most delightful stay! We (my friend and I) booked in for a 3 day retreat and were absolutely taken by the place, it's completely stunning. The day started with yoga at 7:30AM, followed by a stunning breakfast cooked fresh, and then the day was yours to go to the day spa or take up more activities that...

I went for a three night mother & daughter stay when my daughter was pregnant with her second child- totally relaxing! We could do as little or as much as we wished. The two bedroom villa was beautiful, beds were super comfy. Daybeds perfect spot for reading or snoozing. Yoga, day spa and food were spot on. I can't wait...

I entered this beautiful property a little hesitant due to the high prices, but discovered that what you experience is truly delightful and decadent. I spent 3 days/2nights here and arrived in time for breakfast on my first day and left late afternoon on my third day. The service I received was outstanding and made very personal. You must take...

Leave your cares behind, the Gaia Resort and Spa really makes life simple, relaxing and luxurious. Upscale enough you can wear your best in resort attire but comfortable that you could dine in your super chic robe if you wish. As your meals are included you do not need to think about anything but showing up and perhaps adding wine...
