The above cancellation charges also apply if VIPS Consulting cancels the booking due to non-payment of the balance. If the dates of the booking require to be changed or amended, this may be treated as a cancellation of the original booking and cancellation charges may apply. Any change to the original reservation is subject to the approval of VIPS Consulting. An early departure penalty will be subject to negotiation with VIPS Consulting local Representative’s Manager.


Guests should assume that the Check-In Time is 3:00 p.m. and Check-Out time is 11.00 a.m. Any early arrival or late departure will depend upon the availability of the Villa at the time of arrival or
departure. An additional fee may be applicable and will be advised at the time of booking. Guests are responsible for informing the correct arrival details (flight number) whenever an airport transfer is being offered as part of the booking.


Though it is unlikely that VIPS Consulting will have to make any changes to the confirmed arrangements, it does occasionally happen, and VIPS Consulting will advise the client at the earliest possible date. For any reasons beyond VIPS Consulting’s control that could result in VIPS Consulting being unable to provide the Guests with the Villa booked, VIPS Consulting reserves the right to cancel the reservation.

For example, but not inclusive, if any properties are damaged or rendered unusable, VIPS Consulting will endeavour to relocate the Guests to an alternative property for the period required but no guarantee is provided that this can be done. In the event that this is not possible, or if the Guests do not wish to be transferred, VIPS Consulting will cancel the booking and refund in full, the amount paid to VIPS Consulting for the Villa. VIPS Consulting shall not be liable for further obligations/claims by the Guest or client.


● Only those persons stipulated on the booking form may reside at the property as Guests. Please notify VIPS Consulting as soon as possible of any changes. The number of people staying at the property, including children, must not exceed the maximum capacity indicated in the property description or elsewhere, except in the case of infants (under two years old), or unless specifically authorised.

● Should the owner or the local representative find that the number of people staying at the property exceeds that on the booking form or the maximum capacity of the villa, he may, at the absolute discretion of VIPS Consulting, ask the extra person or persons to either pay the applicable additional charge as per the published rate or to vacate the property.

● No camping is permitted on the property grounds.

● No pets are allowed on the entire property.


● If a party is to be organised at the property for a number of guests in excess of 1.5 times the rented occupancy of the villa, this must be agreed prior to booking, as some villas have restrictions on the number of events permitted and the number of guests allowed.

● For an Event to be approved, the minimum number of nights apply and the additional Event T & C have to be agreed upon.

● In addition, a deposit will be collected either by international wire transfer or on site in cash from which a cleaning surcharge may be deducted before refunded to the Guests.


A security deposit may be payable to VIPS Consulting with the payment of the balance or on arrival at the Villa in cash. This is to cover the cost of any damage or breakages during the rental period of the Villa or their contents. Access to the Villa may be refused if security deposit is not paid in full.

The security deposit will normally be refunded at the end of the rental period, after deducting the cost of replacement or repair for any loss or damage to the Villa, its surroundings or contents caused during the rental period.

The cost of replacement for any loss or damage to the Villa, its surrounds or contents will be based on the property’s inventory pricing as determined by VIPS Consulting or the owner or owner’s representative of the property. If this cost cannot be reasonably determined prior to the Guest’s departure, VIPS Consulting, the owner or the owner’s representative is entitled to withhold a reasonable estimate from the Guest’s security deposit, we will return any balance to the Guest as soon as possible after the actual cost has been determined.

If the cost of replacement or repair for any loss or damage to the Villa, its surroundings or its contents caused during the rental period is above the security deposit amount, the Guest is fully liable to pay the remaining cost.


It is a mandatory condition of the booking that the entire party is covered by comprehensive All Risk Travel Insurance (including cancellation, flight delays, loss and damage to baggage and other property) and health insurance (including evacuation and repatriation coverage).

VIPS Consulting or the owners of the rented properties should not be held liable by the Guest and/or the Guest’s party against all claims including any accidents related to the use of the Villa facilities or locally procured third party services such as, but not limited to, watercraft, water sports, jeep or motorbike rental.

VIPS Consulting shall not be responsible for any delay, additional expense or inconvenience caused directly or indirectly by events outside of VIPS Consulting’s control such as civil disturbances, fires, floods, severe weather, pandemic outbreak, Acts of God, acts of Government, etc.

By acceptance of this contract and payment of deposit/full payment it is assumed by VIPS Consulting that this requirement has and will be complied with in full.


Each Villa varies in standard, quality and finishing and there are differences in style and decor. Property descriptions as provided by VIPS Consulting, on the website and elsewhere, are made in good faith.

VIPS Consulting accepts no responsibility for any modifications made which are not mentioned on the website or anywhere else. VIPS Consulting, the villa owner and/or the local representative cannot be held liable for the breakdown of the supply of water, electricity, or internet connection nor of swimming pool filtration systems, though VIPS Consulting will use its best endeavours to arrange for any such problems to be solved quickly.

If there are any problems during the rental period which cannot be solved by dealing directly with the local villa staff, Guests can contact VIPS Consulting or its local representative immediately and VIPS Consulting will use its best endeavours to rectify the situation. It is understood that infrastructure, local standards and conditions are often of a less developed nature in a remote resort location than in more urban environments.

VIPS Consulting will do as much as can be reasonably expected to avoid and rectify any problems that may occur but cannot be held responsible for any problems beyond its control.
Any complaints must be notified to VIPS Consulting or its local representative within 24 hours of the occurrence giving rise to the complaint, and must then be notified in writing to VIPS Consulting before departure.

Should a problem that has been notified remain unsolved please make a complaint in writing to VIPS Consulting within 14 days of the completion of the rental period. If the Villa is vacated before the end of the rental period without mutual agreement this may result in the loss of all rights to compensation. No complaint will be considered if made after the departure date or if not acknowledged by the villa owner, VIPS Consulting or the local representative.


The person paying the villa rental deposit is responsible for the correct and appropriate behaviour of the Guests staying at the Villa, as well as visitors to the Villa during the rental period. Should any member of the party behave in a manner considered inappropriate, either VIPS Consulting, the villa owner or the local representative may at their absolute discretion ask the offending Guest or Guest’s party to vacate the Villa forthwith. In such a case, this will be treated as a cancellation of the original booking and no refund can be claimed from either VIPS Consulting or the villa owners or the local representative.


It is also prohibited to act unlawfully in any way whatsoever and to bring in and/or use/consume any illegal substances. Any offenders will be brought to the local authorities. In addition, in line with its moral duty and respect for the local employee, as well as for the safety of our valued guests, the Guests are not allowed to bring any person met on site back to the properties under any circumstances. The local managers reserve their right to request such persons to vacate the property at any time.


Some types of staff services shall be provided at the villas (i.e. Villa Manager, maid, handyman, Thai Chef). Additional services such as those of babysitters and/or drivers can be sourced in advance or on-site upon request, although such services cannot be guaranteed and depend on availability.

To book the additional service, Guests are recommended to provide an advanced notice as early as possible, especially during peak holiday seasons. Upon the notice, VIPS Consulting or the local representative shall try its best to assist and allocate the service as requested. VIPS Consulting or the local representative can assume no liability for such contracted staff. The rates for these services will be provided in advance and shall be paid as incurred directly to the Guest Relations Manager.


Linen and towels are provided at the Villas. These are normally changed every three (3) days. If Guests require more frequent changes, an extra charge shall be applied. Limited laundry facilities exist on site and charges are made per item. Outside services are also available with a service charge. The service charges must be paid at the time incurred or latest at the time of departure.


Personal safety deposit boxes are provided in all villas. Guests are strongly recommended to store their valuable items in the box such as passports, personal documents, laptop computers, cash, traveller’s cheques, mobile phones, cameras etc.

Any valuables left at the property are the guest’s sole responsibility. Neither VIPS Consulting nor the owners nor the staff can be held responsible for any loss or damage of personal property. It is advised for Guests to ensure that all doors and windows remain locked at night to avoid any temptation.


Guests are required to take due care when residing at the villas and be especially watchful of children playing in the gardens, near the entrance from the main road; near or in the pool or Jacuzzi, on the beach, or in the sea. Furthermore, the Guest or the Guest’s party is not permitted to enter the Villas when they are wet from swimming as the floors can be slippery. Damage or injury arising as a result shall not be the responsibility of VIPS Consulting, the Villa owners or the local representative in any way whatsoever.
