Article 47
Gaia Oasis retreat is situated on Bali’s northern coast. Hundreds of miles away from the bustling, bogan and Bintang filled streets of Kuta, it is something to be experienced. A long azure coastline winds its way to the horizon. Gently lapping waves inviting you to come in and explore the treasure of coral beneath.
