Thank you so much to Gregg and the team for all your giving. Gaia represented for me a path towards inner peace. I Left feeling more grounded and grateful for all the love I received; from the beautiful food, kindness from the staff, the wonderful treatments and breath taking surrounding. Nothing was too much trouble. I can't imagine that anything...

My second visit to Gaia last week surpassed my last visit 7 months ago. Gregg Cave and his team excelled at making me feel welcome, relaxed and in paradise. The spa treatments (each one) were worth thr flight from Sydney alone and the food was nothing less than amazing. Thank you to the Gaia / family - see you again...

What a treat it was to spend six nights at beuatiful Gaia with a dear friend. From the moment you enter Gaia, one feels nurtured. Nurtured by the picturesque landscape, the beautiful caring staff, blissful treatments and soulful, organic food. Whatever stresses you are facing in your day to day life, Gaia will leave you feeling pampered, renewed and peaceful....

From the moment you arrive at Gaia....til the moment you leave...for me the word Sublime best expresses the Gaia Family, the Location, and my overall experience and the feeling I had throughout my stay at Gaia.

When I arrived at Gaia I was in bad shape. The love of my life had just ended our relationship, I had endured 6 months of a particularly stressful work environment, I had moved house in 2 weeks from a large 3 bedroom home to a compact two bedroom unit & hadn't yet unpacked & I had been in a...

We recently spent our tenth wedding anniversary at Gaia. We had a choice of locations for this special occasion and settled on Gaia due to its reputation and to treat ourselves. We were very impressed. For us it was the right balance between sophistication, high quality service and food, and relaxing atmosphere - you can be as private or social...

I had just come through a particularly difficult period with a relationship breakdown and a toxic work environment. I had walked away from both but still needed some time to heal and to be kind to myself. This was, without a doubt, the best place to do this. From the moment I got out of the car I knew I'd...

This was a return visit for me and everything was as perfect as last time. It is a place to rest, restore and regather - whether this is by yourself or with your partner. I went by myself to prepare myself for the second half of the year. The one thing that strikes me with Gaia is the service -...
