Cancellation Policy

We understand that plans can change unexpectedly, so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need to make any adjustments to your booking. If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment we require 72 hours notice. If you cancel late, we charge full price for all bookings. During Peak Season, May thru Sept, we require 7 days to cancel or reschedule an appointment on Friday, Saturday or Sundays. We have waived our 72 hour cancellation policy if you are feeling ill, however we do charge a 20% booking fee that can be applied to your rescheduling. We ask that you please re-book when you are feeling better.

Our ‘no show’ policy is we charge for the full session price. Emergency cancellations are determined at the managers discretion.  Please check your MindBody client profile to ensure you have checked the boxes for your appointment reminders.

For Spa Parties of more than 2 hours we charge a 20% non-refundable booking fee if changes or cancelations are made within 15 days of your booking as we reserve the whole spa for your party.

Solace Organic Spa declines all responsibility for any loss, damage, accident, illness, closure or limitation of services, or change of schedule caused by an event of force majeure, such as bad weather, natural disaster, or any other event beyond the control of the business. Expenses incurred as a result of any of these reasons will not be covered.

Appointment Times

On your appointment day, we require you to arrive early as we want you to receive the full benefit of your time and thank you for arriving early.  Please arrive 15 min early. We do not have an indoor waiting area but we do have a lovely garden courtyard and outdoor heated tea lounge you can enjoy.

In order not to effect your treatment time, please come early. We then ask that you begin to fill out forms we have set out in the tea lounge with your name on them (in the garden) for you and please wait there until a staff member comes to get you. If you need to use a washroom there is one available at all times inside the main entrance reception door across from the pond. Please help yourself to tea or water.

If a spa treatment is booked we aim to bring you into the treatment room 5 minutes before your scheduled treatment time to enjoy a mineral foot soak and discuss your treatment so that your treatment starts at the scheduled time.

Etiquette

Our goal is to create a nurturing and comfortable environment.

Please turn off and out away your cell phones, pagers, and watch alarms. We would like you to enjoy the moment, as well as not disturb other guests.

Please be clean, having showered the same day as your session, do not eat a heavy meal less than two hours prior to the session, and be present (not under the use of drugs or alcohol).  

Sessions begin and end at scheduled times. We require you to arrive early to fill out forms and use the washroom etc. so that your treatment booking can start at the scheduled time. Payment is expected at the time service is rendered and is automatically charged to the card on your account here unless otherwise arranged.

Spa Ritual: Forest Hydrotherapy Circuit

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment time. We would like you to get the full benefit of your appointment, so please do arrive on time. If you are late, your appointment will still end at the scheduled time, as to accommodate our other guests and staff cleaning schedules. Timing is important to us and we are implementing a late charge of $20 is applied for any late completion of the spa ritual bookings. Payment is expected at the time service is rendered. Please respect the quiet spa atmosphere when using the spa ritual as not to disturb guests in the treatment rooms.

Gratuities

We are committed to providing superior service to our guests. Our prices do not include gratuity. Leaving gratuity for work well done seems to be the norm, but of course, it is optional. Generally, 15 – 25% is customary.

Upon booking you will need to provide pre-payment (charged on the day of your treatment) and a receipt will be emailed to you. You can indicate an amount of tip you would like to give the therapists in advance or there will be gratuity tipping cards in the treatment room for you to indicate 15% – 20% – 25% or a $ amount and then we will charge your card on file. This helps us create a seamless checkout experience for you with barely any time at the desk!

Please note:
A minimum of 20% gratuity is added to spa parties of 4 people or more.
