“Serenity dreaming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

We recently ran a four day event for 30 people at the beautiful Villa Gaia and it was divine. The main living / public area overlooking the outdoor pool is open and airy, and with a gentle ambiance it makes you feel held and relaxed. The food is amazing, and all the staff are incredibly helpful.
I live locally so had no need of accomodation, but the people enjoying the residential aspect of the Villa seemed to be enjoying their stay also.
I also had the joy of participating in a Kirtan event a week later, and the resonance in the space is amazing.
Whether you are looking for en event space or somewhere to retreat to, I would definitely put Villa Gaia on your 'to be' list.

We recently held a retreat at Villa Gaia. Upon entering the door you immediately know you are going someplace special. The canopied stoned walkway that curves down the hill descends you into a magical land of peace and tranquility. The space is beautiful and open. It over looks the infinity pool that over looks the rice fields. The atmosphere is lovely. The space is perfect for gatherings or just quiet contemplation time. The food was wonderful and plenty of it. The staff charming. I cannot wait to go again. This time I hope to be on my own to relax and enjoy all of Villa Gaia.

I've visited Villa Gaia several times, but the my first experience was a powerful two week retreat during which I began to see life through what seemed like new eyes. It was a blissful experience that lasted for days and has profoundly changed my life. Of course, no guarantees you'll have a similar experience, but Villa Gaia is run in such a way that opens the door to all sorts of possibilities.

Also, the food was amazing! Healthy and delicious. The rooms were comfortable, and the setting sublime. Glenn knows what he's doing.

Ubud has become increasingly busy the last many years, but it is still a very beautiful place and with all the busy-ness there are innumerable interesting and rewarding experience to be had every day. However, at the end of such a day it is really nice to retreat to a quiet, beautiful space with a calming view to rest and recharge. Villa Gaia is such a place. And, the food is great!

I recently hosted a yoga retreat at Villa Gaia and I was overwhelmed with the level of care & attention to detail there. The staff are like angels, thinking of everything before I had a chance to and making my whole experience easy - I could really relax and get on with what I was there for. All of the participants were extremely happy - Gaia is an oasis, everybody's needs were met and there was no need to go out for anything. The food was mind blowing - even the fussiest adults and children were looked after and the in house massage was excellent to. I will be going back for sure. thanks Villa Gaia!

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are a bit smaller and slightly less fancy so depends on what you are after. 2 room...

Villa Gaia is an amazing retreat and event center. The Balinese staff and the owner Glenn go out of their way to make you feel right at home. The space is beautiful, serene, and peaceful with amazing views. The food is delicious and healthy. It has been a special treat to be a guest here and attend the many diverse and mindful events that are hosted at this incredible center. I look forward to hosting my own events here in the future! Thank you Villa Gaia family for everything you do!
