We undertake to perform our services with reasonable care and skill. However, we will not be
liable for any loss or damage, or loss of enjoyment which result from the act, default or
omission of any person (other than ourselves or our employees) or any cause beyond our
control. This includes (but is not limited to) loss, damage or loss of enjoyment which arises
directly or indirectly from an Act of God, weather disruptions, dangers incidental to sea, fire,
breakdown in machinery or equipment, acts of Government or authorities whether legitimate
or not, wars whether declared or not, hostilities, acts of terrorism, civil disturbances, strikes,
lockouts, riots, deaths, pilferage, epidemics, quarantines or medical, customs or immigration
or emigration regulations. We will endeavour to provide the most suitable arrangements to
meet the particular requirements you make known to us. However, wellness experiences are
an individual experience, and your preferences and opinions may vary from our own. For this
reason, we cannot take responsibility for your individual satisfaction; neither can we take
responsibility for weather nor for compatibility of fellow guests or staff during the course of
the Retreat.
When we make bookings with the providers of meals, entertainment, activities, facilities or
services, etc (“the Suppliers”) we are acting as a booking agent for the Suppliers. All meals,
entertainment, activities or services etc., are supplied directly to you by the Supplier. We have

no control over the facilities or services themselves, or the manner in which they are provided
by the Suppliers. Therefore, you should be aware of the following conditions:
• The agent’s obligation is to arrange relevant contracts directly between you and the Suppliers.
We have no responsibility for these services nor do we make or give any warranty of
representation regarding their standard. Your legal recourse is against the specific Supplier
and not the agent you have booked with.
• The agent will not be liable for any loss or damage of any kind (including without limitation,
any loss suffered as a result of death, injury, and/or illness) that may arise from your use or
consumption of, or inability to use or consume, various Suppliers facilities or services.
• The provision of facilities or services is subject to the terms and conditions and limitations of
liability imposed by your contract direct with each Supplier. The supplier will not be held
responsible or liable for any costs incurred as a result of decisions made without prior approval
from the supplier under circumstances where liability cannot be excluded, such liability is
limited to the value of the purchased arrangements made through the supplier.
• All facilities or services described by us are subject to availability from the Supplier. Where for
any reason, a Supplier is unable to provide particular facilities or services, then that Supplier
may be entitled, under its contract with you to substitute those services or facilities with
comparable or equivalent facilities or services without incurring any liability to you.
• The supplier will not be liable or responsible for any loss or damage relating to your personal
possessions, health or welfare, or delays or travel disruptions, etc.
• Any travel, accommodation and associated costs are not associated with this stand alone
• We suggest that due to the Covid-19 environment that any travel plans and accommodation
plans you make to get you to the Retreat (if applicable) are made with the option of full
flexibility. The Cotour will not be responsible in any way for any associated arrangements you
make, or costs that you incur in relation to this event.

You agree that where our services are acquired for business purposes, or where you hold
yourself out as acquiring our services for business purposes, the Consumer Guarantees Act
1993 will not apply to any supply of goods or services made under these conditions, and we
will not be liable or responsible for any loss or damage of any kind to you, including any
consequential loss or damage however it may be caused.
While we have exercised reasonable care and skill to ensure that we have provided
information that is correct, accurate, and as up-to-date as possible at the time, please note
that this information is supplied to us by the Suppliers. We do not have, and cannot be
reasonably expected to have, personal knowledge about all the facilities or services provided
by each Supplier. Facilities or services do change and we endeavour to keep you informed of
any changes to information that are brought to our attention. All maps, illustrations, images,
photographs, etc., are for indicative purposes only and may not necessarily reflect actual
places or positioning.
