Gorgeous wholesome food; great day spa massages/facial.. Poolside reading.. Socialising at will or not depending on your mood..fitness centre... Clay moulding workshop..ust...

The accommodation was good, bed was comfortable, bathroom was very well equipped and up to date, and housekeeping standard could not be faulted. The grounds are beautiful,and the views across the valley from the deck off...

What a wonderfully relaxing, friendly and personal escape. We felt ourselves relaxing within minutes of arriving; the welcome, location, layout and aesthetics of Gaia have surely been designed for this and it works. The food was fantastic - nutritious and delicious and my special dietary requirements were easily met; we were always looking forward to the next meal. The communal...

I made a spontaneous trip to Gaia last week as I was absolutely at the end of my tether with overwork and overwhelm. For me it was the perfect solution. I enjoyed the tranquility and earthiness of the retreat and indulged in a massage or various other therapies each day. By day 3 all I wanted to do was sleep...

Had a wonderful stay at Gaia Retreat and Spa for 6 nights and should have done it sooner. The people at Gaia at all levels make you feel very special. Spa treatments were top notch! I did the 5-night detox which was well done and had access to a naturopath throughout in case I needed to adjust anything. Food even...

Booked a last minute midweek 2 nights here and it was the best decision I have made of late!

Those that remember the TV show "Cheers" the slogan was "Where everybody knows your name" and "You are made to feel welcome", this is the best description I can make.
