21 May The Reopening of One Life Lodge / Chicks On Waves
Life has definitely slowed down here in Portugal due to the COVID-19 for the last 1,5 months and we’ve all been dealing with this in our own sacred way. But, there is light at the end of the tunnel… Portugal is reviving slowly and taking its rights back to get back to a “normal” life.
Two important dates for Portugal
May 8th – stores, restaurants, bars, cultural places, public transport for most part to reopen under extra safety conditions.
June 6th – Faro airport receiving flights, big stores, beaches, water parks for most part to reopen under extra safety conditions.
Everyone can book a room !
Couples, friends, families and therefore ALL our packages are for all of you, not “chicks” only!
When is the One Life Lodge / Chicks on Waves reopening?
We are aiming to reopen our beautiful villa and retreats from the first week of July even though we know that the circumstances are challenging (and we’ll certainly keep an eye on the entire situation), find the confidence in knowing that we are going to take all precautions to keep our premises safe and clean.
Both, yours and our well-being, health and safety of our lovely guests and workers are of the highest importance for us.
Book a room without paying a deposit !
In these uncertain times we offer our guests to book their retreat spot without making a commitment. No stress and no lost funds 🙂
The deposit of 50% will have to be paid only 2 weeks before the start of the retreat just to make it less complicated in case of cancellation due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
What about our cancellation policy?
In case you consider cancelling your reservation due to pandemic-related reasons, we adapted our cancellation policy for these uncertain times which is the following:
- you’ll be able to rebook until 1 year after your initial booking.
