Colliers is proud to announce the sale of Gaia Retreat & Spa located in the Byron Bay hinterland.
AUSTRALIA’S MOST AWARDED BOUTIQUE LIFESTYLE RETREAT
Through the plethora of national and international Awards & Virtuoso membership of luxury and boutique hotels, Gaia’s international status has been cemented over the years, marking it a retreat with the highest renown and Australia’s most awarded boutique lifestyle retreat.
IRREPLACEABLE RETREAT AND SIGNIFICANT LAND HOLDING
Highly profitable luxury retreats are rarely traded, given the strong combination of excellent cashflow and enviable lifestyle offering. The opportunity to secure a tourist zoned site, across more than eight hectares of pristine hinterland as well as two further 2 hectare residential lots overlooking the coastline of Byron Bay and Ballina will rarely be replicated.
A LOCAL DESTINATION ON THE GLOBAL STAGE
The Byron Shire has historically attracted over 2 million visitors annually and is the tourism focal point for both visitors seeking an alternative beachside lifestyle holiday with the area renowned for its long sandy beaches, as well as art, yoga and meditation. The arrival of Hollywood in Byron Bay and the global buzz this has created over the past year has fundamentally changed the region forever.
LONG TERM SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS
Gaia Retreat & Spa is currently owner operated. The success in winning Awards has been coupled with a long-term track record of delivering healthy bottom line returns through very high retention of staff and repeat visitation by guests. The owners have assembled a team of highly skilled professionals who deliver exceptional guest service across all departments and an experience which is truly treasured by guests.
MINIMAL FUTURE CAPITAL EXPENDITURE
The simplicity of Gaia Retreat & Spa as a pioneer of barefoot luxury means an incoming owner has limited medium term capital expenditure requirements through its understated, yet high quality interior design and well-maintained infrastructure and plant.
A GROWING TOURISM SEGMENT
With wellness holidays on the rise, Byron Bay has grown in prominence as a wellness destination where the convergence of health, wellness and/or spiritual activities have attracted a unique and growing visitor type. The global health pandemic is only expected to exacerbate this trend as people become more health conscious and interested in how to lead healthy lifestyles.
Gaia Retreat & Spa puts a 360-degree focus on optimal wellness and offers an ideal environment to facilitate deep rest and rejuvenation, as well as providing opportunities to make tangible shifts in one’s daily life.
