    3. The acceptance of your booking by JM Control will be conclusively evidenced by the issuance of a confirmation email by JM Control, contingent upon the successful processing of your deposit payment. The moment you receive this confirmation email, a binding contract is established under the stipulations of these Terms and Conditions between you and JM Control.

    4. Agreement to Terms: By completing the booking, participants agree to these terms and conditions. It is the participant's responsibility to read and understand these terms before booking.

    1. JM Control's Role: While JM Control facilitates the booking of accommodations as part of the retreat experience, please note that we do not assume responsibility for the operations and services of these third-party hotels. Our role is to coordinate the overall retreat experience, while the hotels are responsible for the quality of stay, including room service, amenities, and addressing specific requests or concerns.

    2. Special Accommodation Requests: If participants have specific requests or needs regarding their accommodation – such as room type, accessibility needs, dietary requirements, or any other special requests – these should be communicated directly to the hotel. 

    3. Transfer to/from Hotel: While JM Control endeavors to assist in arranging transfers to and from the hotel for convenience, participants should note that these transfers are not included in the booking price and are ultimately their responsibility. Participants are required to cover all associated costs of these transfers. We recommend participants to plan and book their transfers in advance to ensure a smooth and stress-free travel experience.

    4. Additional Hotel Expenses: Participants are responsible for all additional hotel expenses incurred during their stay.

Should there be any concerns or issues during your stay, we encourage participants to first address these directly with the hotel for immediate resolution. Additionally, we welcome participants to share their accommodation experiences with us post-retreat, as this feedback is crucial for us to maintain high standards and make informed decisions about future collaborations with accommodation providers.
