Gaia is named 'Ultimate Wellness Spa'

The internationally renowned and award-winning Gaia Retreat and Spa has been recognized once again by London-based 'The Spa Traveller Awards': winning the prestegious READERS' Choice Ultimate Wellness Spa, Best Wellness Spa: Australasia and South Pacific, and Best Wellness Cuisine.

The latter award couldn't have come at a better time with the forthcoming release of head Chef Dan Trewartha’s cookbook 'Gratitude' - the follow up to Gaia’s first acclaimed cookbook, ‘Grace,’ which completely sold out.  In addition, Olivia Newton-John, co-owner of Gaia Retreat & Spa, recently had an international success with “Livwise: Easy Recipes for a Healthy, Happy Life,” which in addition to her own healthy creations, also features recipes from various chefs at Gaia.  All of her proceeds from “Livwise” benefit the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre in her hometown of Melbourne, Australia.

'We were all absolutely delighted with this news,” says Gregg Cave, Gaia’s GM and Director. “Our team comes to work with heart and, place so much value on creating an ultimate authentic Australian Retreat / Spa experience. So to receive this award is dedication to their commitment. Thank you Spa Traveller and the readers for this kind acknowledgement. Making others happy is a great way to remain happy!”

'I am so proud of our Gaia family, they all deserve this award,” adds Olivia Newton-John, Gaia Director. “We have some very special people who work with us and some amazing healers and therapists. Every time I am there, I feel so grateful at what we have created. Gregg and I set out with a dream and now guests can experience the magic of Gaia.”
