  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, before and after eating, after going to the toilet and after touching items and surfaces others have been in contact with.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze, with a tissue and dispose of tissues, and wash your hands or use a alcohol-based hand sanitiser.

What are we doing to minimise the risk of COVID-19?

Waiuta Retreat have always had very high cleaning and hygiene standards. We have now enhanced our cleaning to adhere to best practice procedures for the current circumstances. Our cleaners vacate our home, arriving guests will arrive to accommodation directly after the clean, the home having not been entered into by any others persons. We will continue to monitor any changes to covid-19 best cleaning practices to maintain our high cleaning standards for the well-being of both our guests and our cleaners.

What if I need to change my travel dates due to Covid-19?

If your upcoming travel plans and existing booking is impacted by verified changes to government travel restrictions at the date of arrival and you need to cancel altogether, we will provide one free date amendment or credit up to seven days prior to arrival. Travel credit will be valid for 12 months from the original booking date and valid only at off-peak.


What if I want to cancel my trip?

If you want to cancel your booking because your upcoming travel plans and existing booking is impacted by verified changes to government travel restrictions at the date of arrival, we will re-advertise the dates on social media (our facebook and instagram account) and if your full dates are booked by other guests we will provide a full refund minus 1 day accommodation fee for re-let administration. You will receive a part refund for only those days re-let from your full booking.
