    "I just spent three lovely days on my own at beautiful Gaia. They treated me like a queen. The food was extraordinary, the spa heavenly and the service impeccable and all the while looking out on the green hills misty in the warm, soft air. I now have my cookbook and my good intentions but I can't wait to return to Gaia; a lovely window into the perfect life."

    "Luke and I had the most wonderful time at GAIA retreat. Our every need was looked after from the moment we started to plan our trip. Once we arrived, we felt so welcome and relaxed. The accommodation and food was outstanding. The spa is world class, with so many amazing treatments on offer. One of our favorite elements was being able to experience their new ‘re-treatment’ skin care range. Each product is certified organic and was specifically designed to revitalize and replenish your skin. I felt noticeably more hydrated and nourished after using the products. We would definitely recommend this beautiful retreat and look forward to returning again soon."

    "When you escape the hustle and bustle of a major city and are welcomed into the luxurious space of Gaia, you know you are in Heaven. I walked into Gaia with hunched shoulders, talking too fast and my mind racing a million miles an hour. The minute I walked through the giant wooden doors, it is like the world disappears and you start to become a relaxed and full of bliss. What I love about Gaia, is that you can choose just how much or how little you do. The morning yoga is my favorite activity but if you’re keen for exercise or a swim than that’s available also. Exercise or rest, it’s your choice. The food is divine! It’s like a 3 Michelin star restaurant without the guilt. I love that most of the food is locally grown or sourced nearby. This is where you need not feel guilty about eating dessert! I have vowed to book myself in once a year as a treat to myself. I left feeling lighter, more centred and like I could breathe again. Gaia is an absolute must if you are feeling worn out or just want a healthy kick start."
