I will start by telling you that I do not wish to write a review similar to what has been written by other guests. This will not be about the tropical gardens. It will not be about the idyllic setting. I will not mention the cascading water falls or the many swimming spots. No mention will be made of the toucans, parrots or parakeets. Instead, let me tell you that my wife and I most enjoyed the serenity and peacefulness of being in this remote locale. We spent 5 days off the grid and it was a vacation to remember and to be repeated. The Gaia Lodge was welcoming, friendly and helpful. If you enjoy being outside the "box" and discovering the simpler things the "riverfront villa" is an easy decision.
