Maybe it’s the graceful swans circling in the courtyard lagoon or the sustainable-design touches – like beautifully sleek recycled tile and granite bathrooms and energy-saving tubular skylights – but the Gaia Hotel & Spa, an Ascend Hotel Collection member, is one of the most unique and eco-friendly hotels in Northern California.

We don’t just pay lip service to treading lightly on our surroundings; it is part of who we are. Our name “Gaia” is derived from the Greek word for “Mother Earth.” Nestled in the heart of Northern California's Shasta and Cascades region, also known as the Gateway to the Wilderness, we pride ourselves on our commitment to celebrating and preserving the natural resources around us.

You might be pleasantly surprised to learn that our boutique-style hotel is also one of the most relaxing, comfortable and elegant. Step into our welcoming lobby and discover an ambiance at once cozy and modern, equally fitting for business and leisure travel – or a little of both. Luxuriate in abundantly sized guestrooms and suites with views of lush herb gardens, wooded areas and our resident swans paddling in the pond.

A feeling of serenity extends throughout the hotel. Cross the charming red footbridge to enjoy dinner at the WOODSIDE grill where the bounty of local ranchers and farmers is perfectly complemented with wines sourced from the vineyards of nearby Shasta, Butte and Trinity counties. Overlooking the river, The Living Waters Spa offers holistic therapies and treatments designed to indulge all five senses. Nearby, the outdoor saline pool and spa offer all natural, easy-on-the-eyes-and-skin rejuvenation, free of harsh chemicals.

Throughout your stay, our friendly staff is available to fulfill any desire, from a quiet dinner at the WOODSIDEgrill to an expertly hosted meeting or wedding to an afternoon of fly-fishing on the nearby Sacramento River.
