2. Our DRYFT family includes cats and dogs. They’re very friendly and will likely visit you in the restaurant, or perhaps come to compare downward dog with you in the yoga shala! Although we are mostly out in the open air, please do expect that you may come into contact with a little animal hair as a result! ☺︎

3. Although DRYFT is very safe and situated on a remote, private island, we do not accept responsibility for loss or damage to your property left in your room or whilst at DRYFT, unless the loss or damage was directly caused by our negligence.

4. Please inform your teacher or host if you have any injury or illness that is relevant to mention. DRYFT is not responsible for any injury or illness that you may experience during or after classes and retreats. We ask that every guest takes responsibility for themselves and their own health and wellbeing throughout their stay – both on and off the mat.

5. Should unforeseen circumstances result in the DRYFT Teacher for your booked holiday/retreat no longer be available, we will endeavour to replace with a teacher of a similar style, however we ask for your understanding if this results in the need to slightly alter the theme or planned programme of your retreat.

6. Any specific dietary requirements should be notified at the time of booking, or at least 30 days before the beginning of the holiday.

7. DRYFT is an eco-sustainable resort. We try to build with sustainable, locally sourced or reclaimed/upcycled ‘sea treasure trash’ wherever possible. When possible, we try to operate solely with solar power. We try to minimise our impact on this island and the amount of trash that we create. We ask that you support us in all the ways that you can, such as conserving electricity and water, not bringing any single use plastic to the island and using only eco-friendly toiletries and sunscreen. 

8. We reserve the right to carry out maintenance works in your accommodation as and when required. 

9. DRYFT is a glamping resort – our accommodations and communal areas may bring you closer to the natural environment than you perhaps may be used to. It is not uncommon for us to see (or hear!) geckos, chit-chats, grasshoppers, cicadas, praying mantis and other native flora and fauna in and around the resort. 

10. As our accommodations do not have the sound-proofing of those built with bricks and mortar, we ask our guests to be mindful and respectful of any noise that they make during the quieter hours. Anybody causing excessive disturbance will be given one verbal warning. Continued disturbance will result in a forfeited booking and no refund.
