Gaia Retreat & Spa

International award-winning Gaia Retreat & Spa, offers guests individually tailored programs, flexible stay dates and complete freedom of choice. Located in a stunning, sub-tropical landscape, the eco-inspired Gaia is an authentic Australian boutique sanctuary offering a secluded lifestyle for restoring wellness and calm.

Nestled in the lush, sub-tropics of the Byron Bay hinterland, a region often famed as the healing capital of Australia, Gaia is an escape from the perils of new millennium living – a secluded sacred space where you can renew, refresh and restore. The 25-acre property offers 13 treatment rooms, a heated salt water swimming pool, tennis court, hot-tub spa, sauna, steam room, walking tracks and boasts its own organic garden. From the birds in the flowering gardens to the eco-architecture and design, Gaia evokes a sense of peacefulness and belonging.

Gaia Retreat & Spa provides guests a unique and private space to realign themselves physically, spiritually and emotionally: it’s about the whole Gaia experience – the staff’s exceptional service, nurturing guidance and wisdom along with nourishing organic food. The dedicated focus on tailored healing treatments in a safe and warm environment completes the story.

“Gaia is the ideal place to relax in comfort, enjoy the views and be totally pampered,” Gaia Retreat & Spa co-founder and owner Olivia Newton-John says.

“You can choose the activities you want to take part in, maybe morning yoga or afternoon tennis, or just indulge in the spa treatments – Gaia provides a spiritual environment to relax and rejuvenate.”

Gaia’s dedicated and professional staff will assist you in designing your own personal, purpose driven retreat – whether it is active and energetic, tranquil and serene, or a clever combination of both. Find your core balance with Fitness activities, Tai Chi or morning Yoga, or your inner creativity with an art class.
