Terms and conditions for Cabin Occupancy

friendly people from the community house

Sudarshanaloka is an area of numerous natural hazards, so it is important that you take full responsibility for your own safety. (See the Manual in your cabin for bush-safety tips)

Cabins are for sole occupancy. Exceptions by prior written arrangement only

Sudarshanaloka is a drug, alcohol, and smoke-free property

Sudarshanaloka reserves the right in it’s sole discretion to decline access to retreat cabins, or to ask you to leave:

  • if you are ill prepared in any way for your retreat
    OR
  • in the unlikely circumstance of adverse weather or environmental conditions
    OR
  • we deem that you are a risk to your own or other's safety or wellbeing
    OR
  • you abuse the facilities or environment.
    In such circumstances Sudarshanaloka will in it’s sole discretion, and in accordance with its refund policy, refund an appropriate proportion of any fees paid in advance, less any damage or other costs incurred
