spa cuisine

At Gaia we pride ourselves on our philosophy that food should be as delicious and visually attractive as it is healthy.

Dine in style at the Kukura House with an emphasis on a balanced diet, while enjoying a mix of exquisite creative flavours. The day begins with a sumptuous buffet and hot breakfast, followed by a light lunch, while the evening unfolds with a three-course fine dining experience. Gourmet meals, snacks, juices and teas are all inclusive.

With a healthy multi award-winning Spa Cuisine approach to wellness, our chefs personally choose the freshest Organic produce available from Gaia’s own Organic garden, the orchards and plantations of the NSW Northern Rivers region, as well as from local farmers and providers. Our area is renowned for some of the finest seasonal food Mother Earth has to offer. This is evident in the high standard and quality of the Gaia Spa Cuisine.



In this fast moving new millennium, it is especially important to keep in touch with our bodies and to care for our health. Many people spend holidays running around more hectically than in their everyday life. That is why at Gaia Retreat & Spa we want you to focus on your wellbeing in an oasis of rest, replenishment and rejuvenation.

Laze around the pool in tranquility is a must at Gaia, as you drift away to the whispers of the many exotic birds of the area. Swim in the heated outdoor salt water pool, detoxify in the Sauna or simply relax in the outdoor spa, the area is private and surrounded by beautiful fragrant gardens.
