About Gaia

Your journey begins…

Surrender to the beauty and healing cultures of the internationally recognised multi award winning Gaia Retreat & Spa, nestled on 25 acres in the breathtaking Bundjalung Country hinterland of Byron Bay, the region known as the healing heartland of Australia.

Majestically poised on the highest point in the Byron Shire, Gaia meaning…spirit of Mother Earth, will seduce you to drift into infinity with its endless spectacular vistas and the unsurpassed, natural sustainable design of Gaia.

Founded in 2005, Gregg Cave, Ruth Kalnin, Olivia Newton-John and Warwick Evans, aptly and affectionately known as G.R.O.W, set out as a close-knit team to realise a shared dream to create a place of heart where you OWN the experience – a place to refocus, rebalance and truly restore.

Whether you are seeking total time-out or an improvement in general health, well-being or fitness – your bespoke Gaia journey is tailored especially for you. Gaia’s ethos and nurturing environment is a haven to develop, create and actualise whatever it is that you personally are seeking. We simply provide you with the space, the privacy, and the inspiration to embrace change. With the guidance of expert, qualified staff, the gift of tools to continue your journey long after you leave – is the signature Gaia experience.

Your intention may be to De-stress, Lose Weight, Detoxify, Get Fit, or maybe you simply need some peace and serenity to regain balance and ground yourself in your own space and time. Gaia is all about you, offering you a truly bespoke and Authentic Spa / Retreat experience, designed exclusively to your needs.

Check in any day that suits you and choose from a selection of Specialised Packages, which includes all Activities, all Gourmet Cuisine, Services, Facilities, four retreat Accommodation styles to choose from and Gaia Day Spa inclusions, depending on your package selection.

Gaia Day Spa is the pure heart of the Gaia experience. Offering 14 treatment rooms with over 35 outstanding healers and therapists, our exceptional team will nurture you with integrity and heartfelt passion to enliven and balance your being.

Drawing on holistic wisdom, Gaia has created grounding and restorative experiences for both men and women that are also open to Day Spa Visitors.
