Retreat Terms & Conditions
Please find below our terms and conditions for joining us on any of our retreats. Please read them carefully and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Our Positive Attitude Policy We do everything we can to make your retreat experience a positive one. Living on nothing but fresh juice for 7 days can have its challenges and small things, like bad weather and going through a detox, can effect people negatively. By mid week the vast majority of people have got through any 'detox' symptoms and begin to feel the benefits of a juicing detox. Clearly this is an unusual 'holiday' and it will have its challenges at times. If you arrive with an open and positive mind the experience will be an enjoyable one.
Juice Master Retreat Cancellation/Refund Policy Juice Master Ltd highly recommends trip cancellation and personal insurance for all clients.

Clients whose balances are not received by the 42-day deadline, risk forfeiting their retreat booking. We will try and contact you via email and telephone, but if after 7 days we have not received any written communication from you and the balance payment has still not been received by this stage, your booking will be cancelled and any deposits and instalments paid will not be refunded.
Making and Confirming Your Booking Rooms are limited on our beautiful retreats and there are many possible room configurations. If in the very unlikely event the place has been double booked we can offer to move you to another week or refund the full amount. On receiving the confirmation email from our team, there will be full details of flight options, times to arrive and check out times provided. Please do not book your flight until your booking is confirmed. Offers may also expire and change, which is why it’s important to book as soon as you can. Your booking contract for the Retreat (not including flights or transfers unless booked with us) is with Juice Master Ltd, Company Registration: 04632887, at Juice Master Ltd, The Juice Factory, 8-12 Stanley Road, Wellingborough, Northants, NN8 1DY. For each booking made, the confirmation correspondence will be sent to you. You are required to complete and return the disclaimer on this correspondence in order for your booking to be classed as a valid contract. Failure to do so, will result in a risk of the booking being forfeited. Once you have email confirmation of your booking you have a further 24hrs to cancel your booking and obtain a full refund. After this period our usual terms and conditions will apply.
Promotions and Discounts If you have a promo code, please feel free to use it when you buy your place - subject to terms and conditions. Discounts and supplements may vary from time to time. Juice Master Ltd can alter these from time to time. Any promotions that offer ‘Gift Pack’ deals will require a shipping charge to be added for any items delivered to a non-mainland UK address. This shipping charge will be advised prior to the pack being sent.
Team Members & Classes In the event of one of the team members becoming injured, ill or any emergency situation that forces them to leave the retreat, then this may impact on the retreat plan, in terms of the yoga or fitness classes or manager talks being cancelled. We will do whatever we can to adapt to the situation and reduce the impact this may have on your retreat experience, however we may not be able to get a substitute team member out. The retreat will continue to run however things will be adjusted to reflect the team situation. There will be no refunds or compensation to reflect the change in team situation.
Flights, Transfers & Visas
Flights must be booked independently although Juice Master representatives will be happy to advise and assist on which Travel agents to use (usually recommended by other client referrals or personal experience). Juice Master Ltd cannot be held liable for providing any referral details of Travel Agents should any problems arise. It is the client’s responsibility to decide on making an informed decision of where to book flights from.
Juice Master Limited use a specialist Travel Agent in Turkey to source standard transfers from Dalaman airport to the resort and back. This company also provides transfers for our boat trip excursions. It is with a group we have trusted and worked with for several years now. The transfer team know what is required for our Retreats and offer reasonable rates via juice Master Limited. Speak to the team when the booking is being made if looking to add the transfers to your booking. Clients needing 'any-time' transfers on days other than Saturday (including the early hours of Saturday on arrival) will incur an added supplement charge. Clients who book transfers independently will need to take full responsibility for their travel. As a word of warning many transfer companies do not know where the Juicy Mountain retreat is located as is in a remote area, and people arriving on independent transfers often get lost and charged more for the journey.
To enter Turkey, you will need a VISA. This MUST now be obtained online before you fly. Please visit https://www.evisa.gov.tr The application process is easy and once you have applied you should be issued with your VISA via email within 24 hours. You MUST then print out your visa and have it ready to show the immigration officials when you land in Turkey. It is advisable to apply at least 1 week before departure date and your VISA is valid for 180 days from the time of application, so you must have returned from Turkey within that time. The price for a VISA for a UK or Irish citizen is $20 (roughly £12 or €15).
We are not a Silent Retreat Juicy Mountain, although a peaceful haven in all, cannot always offer a totally quiet space. This is due to the proximity of all the guests and rooms and the retreat having just one common space. We respect that some guests will be joining us for some rest, quiet and peaceful time out. There are several spaces around the retreat where this can be found. However, we cannot guarantee the noise levels from any of the rooms being contained. We have no sound proofed accommodations at the retreat. Guests will be joining us from all backgrounds and have booked to explore and experience their own journey. We will do our best to make it as much a comfortable stay for all, but we cannot guarantee containing sounds from the evening documentary viewings, the guests socialising in communal areas and for music played and talks during classes and activities. Please note, we are not a silent retreat and although we appreciate and encourage calm and quiet times, we cannot restrict guests and evening TV viewing noise levels. For light sleepers, we would advise bringing ear plugs just in-case. Or please secure accommodations in possibly quieter area's at the time of booking.
Health & Safety Restrictions If you are currently pregnant, or under medical or psychiatric supervision, you must provide a Doctor’s certificate confirming your fitness to travel and take part. Our retreat is unfortunately not suitable for those with psychiatric or deep emotional issues or those looking for counselling or therapy, as our team are not trained in these areas. Our team are also not medically trained and do not know your medical history so cannot offer any specific medical advice whilst at the retreat. Our retreat is not suitable for children or for people with physical disabilities that cannot take care or responsibility for themselves as our team are not trained or experienced to look after people with such conditions. There are areas of the retreat that people with mobility issues may not be able to access. Our walks will take place on uneven grounds, walking boots and trainers are recommended with suitable ankle protection. In any case, all health problems should be disclosed when booking (refer to the PARQ forms that need to be completed as compulsory and which will be sent to you at the point of the booking being confirmed). A separate Juice Master questionnaire will also be sent which needs to be completed and returned prior to attending the Retreat. This questionnaire will be needed so that Juice Master have any other necessary details regarding contact details, and to help make your experience with us an enjoyable one.
No alcohol or other recreational drugs may be brought to the Retreat. Any guests found intoxicated or under the influence of recreational drugs will be asked to leave the Retreat. If we have reason to believe you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs and or you are abusive verbally or physically in any way to any of our team or representatives we have the right to refuse you to embark on the transfer to the retreat and you will be left at the airport. You will not be refunded for the transfer or any time missed at the retreat. You will have to find your own alternative accommodation and transfer to the retreat the following day when you are no longer under the influence of alcohol or drugs. You are not permitted to bring or consume alcohol or drugs at the retreat and if you are found to be under the influence of such whilst at the retreat, you will be asked to leave with immediate effect. You will not receive a refund for the remaining of your retreat stay and you will need to arrange and pay for your onward travel and alternative accommodation. If you are abusive or threatening verbally or physically at any time during your retreat stay, you will be asked to leave the retreat with immediate effect. You will not receive a refund for the remaining of your retreat stay and you will need to arrange and pay for your onward travel and alternative accommodation.
Tents Tents All our tent bookings include tent accommodation, mat, pillow (this pillow is mentioned above), a towel (this will also be changed during the week), torch/lantern, access to an enclosed hot/cold water shower, toilet, all juices, smoothies, shots, supplements and all activities. Please being a hot water bottle*, sleeping bag*, ear plugs, eye mask and any other essentials you may need. We cannot be held responsible for the weather and clearly if the weather is wet and windy or too hot this may effect your enjoyment of the retreat experience. However Juice Master is not in any way liable for this and it is completely your decision to book to stay in a tent and take your chances with the weather. *The hot water bottle & sleeping bags are only recommended for April, Sept and October months as the evenings are cooler then. We now have 2 shower rooms and 2 toilets at the camping area, which is shared between 4-8 guests per week, allowing more comfort for the camping guests. Warm water should be readily available but can vary across the season.
Room Share If you select a 'room share' options then Juice Master takes no responsibility for the actions of the person/s with whom you 'room share'. If for whatever reason you are unhappy with your 'room share' including but not limited to: clash of personalities; disagreements; snoring; other annoying habits etc, Juice Master cannot be held responsible. Juicy Mountain is for most of the year sold out, so unfortunately if an altercation arises, there are no other rooms available, so we will be unable to move you.
Items Forgotten at the Retreat On your last day, please ensure you have packed all personal belongings safely before leaving the Retreat. Any items forgotten or lost will not be at the responsibility of Juice Master Limited to recover and return back to you.
Exclusions All information provided on the website and any written and verbal form of correspondence is correct at the time of publication. However, due to mechanical faults, weather conditions, or what insurers call ‘Acts of God’, some amenities may be temporarily unavailable. Very occasionally, we may have to vary the advertised programme due to staff sickness or other unforeseen problems, in which case we will always try to provide an equivalent replacement. This may not always be possible. For example, if our Yoga Instructor becomes unwell on day 3 of the retreat, it is likely that it will be too short notice to find another and Yoga may well be cancelled for the whole week. This is extremely rare, but could happen. The same applies to any of the activities. Please note we rebound outside, so if the heavens open, rebounding will be cancelled. Clearly we will always do our level best to make sure all activities go ahead if possible. We would also like to point out that the Juice Master team can change at any time and although we will always endeavour to have a suitable replacement there will be no compensation for the change in team member.
Juice Master will not accept liability for:
- Any of the above events, or others beyond our control.
- Loss, injury, or damage (to you) or your personal property.
- Medical or psychiatric conditions developing during or after your holiday.
- Juice Master cannot be held responsible for any information provided regarding VISA application, it is your responsibility to apply and obtain the correct VISA for travel to Turkey.
Check that your holiday insurance policy covers these and other contingencies. And ensure you have the correct visa and travel documents needed for your travel to the Retreat.
