Gaia Retreat Spa gave my mind body and soul a refreshing, beautiful inner peace experience that i was able to give myself a gift to rest, play and eat 5 star healthy foods.
At Gaia there is no tight schedule only when to be gently reminded to attend breakfast , lunch, dinner and be pampered or attend their many activities eg: working with clay, nature walks , tai chi, meditation and so on. Overwhelming with exceptional customer service and like minded people who want the warmth of a well organised Retreat Spa.
I experienced a 3 night package and would return to complete a journey of health and well being. Mwhaw..xxx Vicki.....

Room Tip: Stay as long as you can and rest up!

I spent 3 nights at Gaia and the difference it made to my mindset and ability to persevere through a challenging period was invaluable. It is the perfect pick-me-up / recharge. I arrived at Gaia as a stress-head and left feeling very 'zen'.

My trip followed a recommendation from a friend so my expectations were high - and were definately met. From the moment I was picked up at the airport, I was made to feel welcome. Just walking into Kukura House felt like having the weight of the world lifted from my shoulders and the whole experience (5 day package) was full of serenity and tranquility. The food was superb and I've developed a new love for quinoa which, thankfully, is easy to cook and available at the local supermarket. The day spa was delightful and my day 1 massage with Kyle was the best I've ever had (and I've had a lot of massages over the years). All the staff from the moment I booked were warm and kind and had this innate ability to tell when you wanted to be alone and when you wanted to talk. After 18 months without a break, my 5 days at Gaia has left me feeling refreshed and energised. I'm already planning when I could go back.

My daughter and I have just spent three days at Gaia, our second visit and have returned home relaxed, refreshed and full of good intentions to eat well and stay healthy. A beautiful retreat where there is no pressure to keep busy, where you can find endless places to sit, walk, be solitary or have someone to talk to and the food is really outstanding. Spa treatments provide extra nurturing but do let them know if you are claustrophobic. A couple of treatments involve lots of wrapping up and/or a room full of steam with no sight of the exit. More information would be good. But overall, a wonderful experience.

I spent 3 days at Gaia and it was a cocooning experience! The property is truly beautiful, set on top of a hill that overlooks amazing views. The rooms are simple but elegant and relaxing to be in.The food is amazing! The flavours were so intense and each meal time was a delight. Each day there are activities but no pressure to do them. The spa and the staff there are so welcoming and caring and friendly and the treatments were fantastic. Everyone who came back from a treatment had a glow and relaxed demeanour about them and we couldn't wait for the next experience. After 3 days I felt very relaxed, refreshed and nutured. Initially I was a little nervous going on my own but found that the majority of people were there on their own so it wasn't an issue.Treat yourself, it is worth it! I will return!
