A stylish and holistic health retreat with fantastic countryside views and fabulous food

Gaia Retreat is a 15-minute drive inland from the popular seaside resort of Byron Bay. Stylish and luxurious without being pretentious, it’s co-owned by Olivia Newton-John and her long-time friend Gregg Cave, now the manager, who bought and converted the property in 2005. And it’s one of the most relaxing retreats I’ve ever been to, with just 18 wooden cabins centred around a Samoan longhouse.

There’s plenty of outdoor space in which to wander, and the property is strewn with jacaranda trees, hammocks, meditation benches and hand-carved Tibetan stone urns. You’ll feel comfortable here alone, or with a friend or partner, whether you want a couple of nights R&R or a more intensive package. Complementary activities range from tai chi classes to sound meditation, and the spa offers a huge range of holistic and pampering treatments from some of the best therapists in the area. What's more, the food is fantastic - inventive, delicious and full of goodness.
