A deposit of 10% is required at the time of booking. Bookings must be paid in full 6 weeks prior to the start date of your stay. If the balance amount owing is not received by such date, Kaya Lodge reserves the right to annul the agreement and retain the deposit as cancellation compensation.
If your stay commences in less than 6 weeks, payment must be made in full at the time of booking.
Kaya Lodge reserves the right to refuse group bookings. If you have any queries regarding group bookings please call Kaya Lodge on 07919 405594.
This is a requirement to cover any costs to Kaya Lodge for damage or breakages . It may also be to recover any additional cleaning charges or late departure fees. Deposits of £100 per accommodation unit are required for the following booking types:
• Group bookings • Adults only groups
We aim to refund security deposits within 24 hours of guests’ departure. The refund is made via bank transfer.
Deductions from the security deposit
For damages or breakages: Guests are advised to check the accommodation unit for any damages or breakages found at the beginning of their stay and to inform Kaya Lodge immediately.
Any deductions made to a guest’s security deposit for damages or breakages will be supported by receipts showing the cost of repairs or replacement items, and also by photos where appropriate.
For extra cleaning: Guests are requested to leave the property in the same condition as on the day of arrival. All food items and personal belongings must be cleared. Kindly follow Kaya Lodges’ instructions about removal of rubbish in the relevant section and in the welcome pack. Should the unit be left in an unacceptable condition and require additional cleaning, this will be charged at £25 per hour.
The prices on the Kaya Lodge website are not binding and Kaya Lodge reserves the right to modify these prices. The price stated on your confirmation/invoice is binding. Special offers and/or discounts cannot be used after the confirmation/invoice has been issued.
Should you need to cancel your booking this can be done by either of the following methods:
If a cancellation request is made within 6 weeks of your arrival date we will endeavour to re let your lodge. Potentially this may not be successful and therefore regrettably no refund of any monies will be paid. If you cancel prior to this date we will happily reschedule your stay for another date, or refund any monies paid, less your deposit.
If your stay is terminated early, the entire booking amount is payable.
In the unlikely event that we need to cancel your holiday we will inform you as soon as possible and will offer you the choice of rebooking your holiday at a comparable pricing period or a full refund of all monies paid to us. No compensation is available.
We recommend that you have appropriate holiday insurance cover.
If you wish to change your stay we may charge a fee of £25 and cannot guarantee transfers however we will endeavour to come to a mutually agreeable solution.
Smoking is not permitted at any time within the lodge. If it is evident that guests have been smoking in the lodge then there may be a charge applied to compensate for the additional cleaning and delay in being able to re-let the lodge. Anyone choosing to smoke outside the lodge, please do so responsibly.
Candles and Fire
The lodge is supplied with electricity and led battery operated candles. Any other candles are not permitted in the lodge at any time. All fires need to be kept to the specified areas and must be supervised at all times.
Guests undertake to behave in a proper, appropriate and legal manner with due respect to Kaya Lodge, the Property and other guests and their property. If any guest behaves inappropriately or improperly (of which the Kaya Lodge will be the final judge on their Property), or illegally, Kaya Lodge reserves the right to ask the guest and their party (at their discretion) to leave the Property before the end of the holiday period. Any refund for so doing will be at the entire discretion of Kaya Lodge. In addition, Kaya Lodge reserves the right to sue the guests for any loss, damage or injury caused to Kaya Lodge, the Property or to other guests and/or their property.
