Gaia Retreat & Spa

Top choice Spa

in Byron Bay

This luxury retreat, tucked away in the verdant hinterland in Bundjalung country, is famously co-owned by Olivia Newton-John. If you want to save the minimum $1500 it costs to stay, spend a day in the spa, and book in for lunch: it's $35, red-meat-free, and all produce is grown on-site.

Keep it simple with a relaxing massage or a facial using Gaia's Retreatment Botanics products, or go deeper with shamanic or sound hearing. Day-use guests must book a minimum of a 90-minute treatment, which includes use of the spa, sauna and the heavenly pool surrounded by rainforest.
