Groups and Meetings Cancellation

  • We remain flexible and understanding of the situation

  • Cancellation requests from all countries as well as domestic groups will be considered
  • Cancellation requests for groups and meetings arrivals from 24 January 2020 until 30th June 2020 will be considered
  • Deposits or pre-payments will be held as payment towards a future booking within 1 year of the originally booked check-in date for individuals, and within 2 years of the originally booked check-in date for groups
  • If the cancellation request is unwilling or unable to rebook, or do not agree to these terms, they will be treated on a case by case basis to find a solution and we can be flexible on the re-booking period in order to secure a positive resolution

Public Area Access

The management of Oaks Hotels, Resorts and Suites is taking all the necessary measures to ensure that the hotel is fully compliant with the recommendations of local authorities and that of the World Health Organisation at this time.

Additional preventative measures already implemented include hand sanitisers available on all reception desks, thorough sanitising of all rooms for arriving guests including all high touch surfaces and linens. The cleaning of high touch-point areas within in common areas has also been increased to take place every hour. 

Following the government’s increased restrictions on public facilities, food & beverage venues will now be open for takeaway and/or home delivery only and will no longer be accommodating dine-in guests.  Onsite facilities, such as gyms, indoor pools and spas will also be closed during the period.

Oaks Hotels, Resorts and Suites is committed to ensuring that the hotel or resort is prepared to take further preventive measures should circumstances indicate.
