Covid-secure operating plan
Version 6, 9 July 2021
This guidance relates to Step 4 of the February 2021 government 'Reopening Businesses and Venues' roadmap which you'll find here https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/reopening-businesses-and-venues-in-england/reopening-businesses-and-venues. Whilst we make every effort to update our guidance please refer to government guidance for the most up-to-date information:
If you are unable to travel due to Government or NHS-mandated self-isolation or because you have tested positive for Coronavirus, you should contact us as early as possible to discuss options to transfer your booking into the future.
To cover any last-minute changes caused by Covid restrictions or other unforeseen circumstances, we recommend you take out travel insurance.
Where restrictions require you to change your booking and if this is permitted in the terms of your booking, we will be happy to amend or transfer your booking to another date in the future. Where changes to your booking are required, if the new dates are on sale at a lower rate, we will refund the difference; and if they are at a higher rate, we will request you to make a top-up payment. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and one of the crew will be on hand to help.
Further lockdowns? Your booking is safe.
If we are required to temporarily close the resort for any reason, we will work with you to modify your stay dates to another time of your choosing, no matter which rate you booked on or how soon you were due to visit. If the new dates are on sale at a lower rate, we will refund the difference; and if they are at a higher rate, we will request you to make a top-up payment.
The resort will be open but a few restrictions remain in place for the safety of our guests and crew:
- If you have Covid symptoms or are self-isolating, you must not travel to the resort

CANCELLED OR LOCKDOWN-AFFECTED RESORT AND SPA BOOKINGS
If you had a booking placed on hold during our periods of Covid-enforced closure we would be delighted to rearrange your stay. When booking new dates, if you are transferring to a lower rate than you have already paid, we will refund the difference. If you move your booking to a higher-rate period, you will need to pay the outstanding balance.
If you had a Spa booking placed on hold during our period of closure, your booking can now be moved to any date with availability in the 24 months following your original booking. If we are unable to honour the new date, your booking will be transferred again.
