About This Center


Gaia Retreat Center is nestled in the heart of terraced rice fields located in the creative mecca of Ubud - the most desirable location in Bali and voted the friendliest town in Asia. 

The Mission of Gaia Retreat Center

Established over 8 years ago, our continuous mission is to develop a health and wellness center that supports people in body, mind and spirit through our signature detox and meditation retreats as well as the opportunity to rent our space for group retreats.

We provide delicious organic food and therapies at reasonable prices, with the slogan "our profit is in your health & happiness". We focus on providing a sacred space in which teachers can do their work at ease and at peace. By meeting the needs of and supporting the teacher in all aspects during their stay in Bali, the student will therefore be given the best energized space to learn and grow in the most efficient and effective manner.In addition to our retreat center, we have our Gaia Holistic Wellness clinic in the town of Ubud just 10 minutes from our center with three registered nurses and colonic facilities, along with additional therapy rooms.
At GRC we also focus on educating our community and supporting charity work in Indonesia - we always look for ways to give back. Each facilitator that books a private retreat at GRC is given the opportunity to link their retreat to a charitable Indonesian cause of their choosing. Our active 'Pay it Forward' program through Be (contact info blocked), Bali Angles and Imagine Bali with a mission on ending plastic pollution are just some of the organizations we are connected with. We wish to offer our best to everyone and aim to keep raising our vibration and thus the vibration of the WHOLE.

“Wandering re-establishes the original harmony which once existed between man and the universe.” - Anatole France
