ROOMS & RENTAL
There are 8 bedrooms which can comfortably accommodate 16-18 guests at double occupancy.
Villa Gaia is rented as a whole for your event and not per room or per person - offering complete exclusivity for you and your guests.
We have two kitchens, staff and superb amenities. Twelve large lounge chairs surround our pool, perched at the edge of the rice fields to watch the sun rise and sunsets of Bali with the occasional farmer and his lovely row of ducks. The large open entrance area on the ground floor can fit up to 60 people for lectures and 30 people for yoga or workshops. There is a projection TV to support your video demonstrations.
Gaia Retreat Center offers students and teachers the perfect environment; a private and natural setting surrounded by acres of rice terraces and swaying palm trees due to a therapeutic knock-out breeze allowing you to pursue a mindful, health-conscious lifestyle in peace and solitude. We specialize in plant-based cuisine with all ingredients sourced locally and we can cater to non vegetarian eaters as well as clients with specific dietary needs.

*Giving Back to the Community* If you choose Tirta Empul Temple or Gunung Kawi Temple excursion, we encourage opting into a 30 minute charity stop to Shiny Pearl Foundation . This lovely foundation is located only 5-10 minutes away from both temples and is a wonderful way to gift back to the Balinese disabled community - an opportunity to purchase handicrafts they have created, visit their permaculture farm, learn how to make offerings, have lunch with them at set price and simply gift back to the community by being present with them. It puts life into perspective "as challenging as my life is, there are other people with disabilities who have it tough out, still smile and make the best out of their limitations". This charity gives that gift of this feeling!
