An aud$1000 security bond is payable before or on arrival to cover any additional spend or damage to the property. You may pay this in cash and recive back in cash at the end of your stay, or provide a credit card 5 days before check in. The person making the booking is responsible for the conduct of their guests.
With payment of the deposit, the customer agrees to the Terms and Conditions as outlined above and the management guarantees the reservation.
All payments via bank transfer need to be received net of bank charges, and credit card payments are levied a 2% credit card processing fee. The villa is owned by the Australian based Bambu Hotels and Marine 1 charter boat team and the charges on your card will show from this company. Please note, we only accept Visa and MasterCard.
It is important that at the time of booking and at guest registration prior to arrival, the exact number of adults and children who will be staying in the villa is correctly advised. This is to ensure not only correct transportation arrangements can be made, but that the villa is prepared correctly, and facilities are adequate for the comfort of all guests. If there is any change in guest arrival numbers, it is the responsibility of the guest booking to advise us of any changes as soon as it is known, and before the check in date. If you arrive with more guests than have been reserved you will be levied an additional $50 per person per night fee for single beds and $250 per couple for double beds.
For total piece of mind we recommend guests to have travel insurance, for the unlikely event of any illness, accident, loss of personal items or other travel related contingencies or cancellations during their travel or stay in Bali. If you are an Australian resident we use and recommend Covermore.
Guests need to be aware that they are required to comply with local laws and regulations. A copy of each guests passport is required at check-in for police registration, and only registered guests can stay in the villa, failure to do so may see authorities impose high penalties. No drugs or any illegal activities are permitted on the premises, including gambling or engagement of or participating in lewd or immoral behaviour.
Please ensure you respect our neighbours and keep noise to a minimum, an 11pm curfew applies for any noise emanating from the villa. There is an in-house café style sound system for guests use for background music only. Amplified speakers, DJ equipment, bands or any form of externally provided entertainment including fire dancers etc are not permitted at the property without previous agreement from management and payment of the additional event and banjar fees.
WEDDINGS, EVENT AND PARTY POLICY
No organised events can take place at Villa Colony without prior approval of management, a separate detailed set of instructions and requirements relate to major events and will be discussed prior to any booking being taken.
RESPONSIBILITY AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY
As is normal anywhere our guests, and specifically the person making the booking, is responsible for any damage caused to the villa or its contents during the stay, this includes damage caused by other people that the guest/s invites to the villa. A security deposit in cash or credit card authorization of AUD$1000 to cover damages is required at check in, and may be held up to 7 days after check out, where no damage is found. The replacement value of any items damaged during the stay will be withheld from the security deposit. Additional charges may apply should the damage exceed the security deposit amount. Please be advised that the villa owner or management is not responsible for any loss or damage to personal items, illness, injuries or accidents during your stay in our villas. Delay in arrival for any reason or changes in travel schedules cannot be compensated by the management. No responsibility can be taken for failure of machinery or equipment in the villa, but the management will always aim to assist our guests in the best way possible and have any such problems rectified as quickly as possible. This includes services that depend on the performance of external providers such as electricity, cable TV and internet. The management does not accept responsibility for any events that are outside the control of the management, such as fire and severe weather.
