gaia retreat & spa

Byron Bay Hinterland, New South Wales

Resting on 20 breathtaking acres of Bundjalung Country, in the serene Byron Bay hinterland, Gaia Retreat and Spa is one of Australia’s most highly-awarded lifestyle wellness retreats. A special place that invites you to surrender.

Days at Gaia Retreat and Spa are spent doing exactly as you please. Wake up with a morning yoga session and choose from a daily changing selection of activities including mediation, Qi Gong and Pilates, hands-on cooking classes and dance lessons. There is also a tennis court and fitness centre, gentle nature walks and peaceful daybeds.

The tranquil day spa area also includes a heated outdoor saltwater pool, sauna and spa surrounded by fragrant gardens and soothing water features to provide a holistic healing haven.

Generous, yet guilt-free dining is inspired by the organic kitchen garden and served in the main lodge building or on the shaded balcony.

Accommodation is provided twenty-two guest rooms, suites and villas nestled in the tropical landscaped gardens. From comfortable king-rooms with private outdoor verandas and two-bedroom Acacia Suites with separate lounge area and outdoor hot tub, to the generously proportioned Komala Villas with their own saltwater heated plunge pools. The luxurious and spacious two-bedroom Komala Luxe offers a large indoor lounge with fireplace, private outdoor sitting areas and its own heated swimming pool.

From the property’s Samira lookout views stretch from the Nightcap Ranges to the Pacific Ocean and although the many alluring pleasures of buzzy Byron Bay are only 20 minutes away, it’s unlikely that you will want to steal yourself away from Gaia’s magnetic serenity.
