I spent 6 nights at Gaia and returned home yesterday a new person. The purpose of my trip was to kick start my life again and de-stress, mission accomplished.
It is not a cheap holiday, but the 5 star service provided actually makes it value for money. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff in both the Resort and the Spa. ALL the staff refer to you by name all the time and are always checking if you are OK or if you need anything else. An absolutely beautiful setting with a lot of activities on offer.
After dinner every night you get a card with the following days activities (which is personalised depending on what you have booked in at the Spa or otherwise). There is no pressure to do the activites if you don't want to, but I would highly recommend doing as much as possible because they are all either great fun, or very relaxing. Yoga every morning was a great way to start the day!
I had a few treatments in the Spa which were included in my package (and a couple more extras!) which were great. They are a little more expensive than in my home town, but I expected that anyway. Another review here said that they didn't provide robes after treatments? I didn't have this problem. All the change rooms have ample clean robes in them for you to wear back to your room, then you just leave them on the bathroom floor and the cleaners take them away.
The food is 5 star and you are never hungry. It's all apprently local organic produce and you can really taste the difference.
All up, it was a great holiday and I plan to do this once a year.
