Refund Policy

If the participant withdraws or transfers from a retreat, the following refund policy applies:

If the balance of the retreat fee is not received by the notified due date (six weeks prior to retreat commencement), a participant’s place may be offered to someone on the waiting list. The participants will forfeit the deposit paid.

a) If the participant withdraws 30 days or more prior to retreat commencement the participant will receive a full refund of all monies paid, minus an administration fee of $50.

b) If the participant withdraws 14-29 days prior to retreat commencement the participant will receive 75% of the full retreat fee, minus an administration fee of $100.

d) If the participant withdraws after the retreat commences, the full retreat fee is non-refundable.

Cancellation of added options by the participant within 6 days of program commencement are not eligible for a refund. Any activity (e.g. surfing or kayaking) cancelled by the operator due to weather conditions is fully refundable.

A specific cancellation policy applies for FULL and HALF Day retreats:

a) If a massage is booked for your full or half day retreat we will require more than 24 hours notice for cancellation, otherwise the massage is non-refundable.

b) Out of respect for our therapists, if you are unwell on the day of your massage, you will not be able to attend your massage.

Transfer Policy

If circumstances arise that require a transfer from the retreat on which you have a confirmed booking you will need to supply us with a request in writing.

If a waitlisted participant can fill the space then you may be able to transfer your place to another applicable retreat at a cost of $200. This option is limited to one transfer only (after this, the regular refund policy applies) and depends upon a case by case assessment of your situation.

If there are no waitlisted participants to fill the space the regular refund policy applies to your transfer.

The following conditions apply for International Retreats:  

The administration fee increases to $200 in relation to refunds.
