About Gaia Retreat & Spa

ABOUT US… Creating a dream

Majestically poised on the highest point in the shire and set on 25 acres, Gaia boasts a dramatic backdrop of green valleys and undulating hills in the subtropical hinterland of Byron Bay. This boutique 19 room property will seduce you and capture your heart with its exquisite vistas.


Gaia Retreat and Spa

Founded in 2005 by Olivia Newton-John, Gregg Cave, Ruth Kalnin and Warwick Evans, Gaia offers a retreat with tailored programs aimed to the individual. Gaia is run on a day-to-day basis with gracious hospitality by Gregg Cave, who along with the entire team at Gaia, is committed to your wellbeing. 

Inspired by the healing culture of the Byron Bay region and its abundant and fresh local organic produce, Gaia Retreat & Spa is so much more than a healthy holiday; it is a unique retreat and spa experience – with heart. At Gaia Retreat & Spa, it’s all about choice; you choose and we'll help you design your own personal, purpose driven retreat – whether it is active and energetic, tranquil and serene, or a clever combination of both.
