TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR RETREAT LEADERS
Please note: These updated terms and conditions were installed April 22, 2017. If you booked prior to this date and have a question about your terms and conditions, kindly contact us for a copy of our previous terms and conditions.
1. It is the retreat leader’s responsibility to carefully check the reservation and ensure that the particulars contained therein are correct.
2. The retreat leader shall pay Floating Leaf Eco-Luxury Retreat a non-refundable, non-transferable deposit in the sum of 20% of the total amount due to hold the date for the retreat. Five (5) rooms must be sold for the retreat to run. Selling of a room can be either single, double and with permission from Floating Leaf, triple occupancy. The prices quoted are based on the sale of at least 5 rooms. 6-10 rooms may be reserved initially. Non-residential options may be available after 7 rooms have been sold at full price.
Payments from the retreat leader to Floating Leaf Eco-Luxury Retreat break down into three installments.
Payment 1: 20% deposit to hold the dates and begin promotions. The retreat is not confirmed until payment clears our account.
Payment 2: 20% of the balance is due 4 months (120 days) prior to arrival.
Payment 3: The remaining balance is due 2 months (60 days) prior to arrival. This final payment is based on the actual occupancy at this time which may be different from previous invoices.
Floating Leaf Eco-Luxury Retreat will deduct $100 from the final invoice to help offset bank transfer fees. Floating Leaf is not responsible for any fees charged by Paypal, banks, or other institution. We simply credit the retreat leader’s account for the exact net amount we actually receive.
The 6th room will be provided free of charge for the retreat leader only if the other 5 rooms are sold. Once 5 rooms are sold (single or double occupancy), the retreat leader will receive a place in the 6th room for free. This also includes everything on the itinerary (excursions, meals, activities, etc.). The retreat leader may choose to sell the other spot in the room to a participant at full price. If there is a second retreat leader, they can occupy the same room at 30% off the double occupancy rate or they can have their own room at a 15% discount.
3. The room breakdown for guests is due 75 days prior to arrival so we can prepare the invoice for final payment. Preparation of the invoice may take up to 48 hours. If full payment is not received at least 60 days prior to arrival, a 2% late fee will be issued. If payment plus the 2% is not received by 53 days prior to arrival, the dates will be release and the deposit will be forfeited. There will be no refunds, exchanges, or other concessions made if payment is not received. We appreciate your cooperation, as a great deal of planning needs to occur prior to your arrival and we want to make it very special for you and your guests. Bookings within the last 8 weeks must be paid in full at time of booking. Payment can be made via wire transfer or Paypal.
4. The room breakdown will be provided to Floating Leaf at the 75 day prior to arrival mark. An invoice will be prepared based on the room breakdown. Payment for the rooms will be non-refundable at this point. Any unsold rooms will be open to the public at this time.
5. The invoice is the contract between the retreat leader and Floating Leaf Eco-Luxury Retreat. Payments must be made in the manner listed on the invoice only. The payment of the invoice implies understanding and agreement of the terms and conditions.
At the 8-week to arrival date, if 5 rooms are not sold, Floating Leaf has two options.
A. Floating Leaf may cancel the retreat. As previously stated, all payments are non-refundable and non-transferable.
