Before you decide to cancel, please keep in mind that your confirmed reservation slot has been blocked to prevent any scheduling conflicts. This means that other visitors are unable to book for your timeslot if they would prefer it. Our staff also prepares according to the reservations, sometimes days ahead. Although our cancellation is free, we encourage all our clients to practice consideration and thoughtfulness while booking and cancel only when necessary.

When can I cancel my event?

You can cancel your reservation any time before the event date! We kindly ask you doing so at least 24 hours before your scheduled event to give us time to process your refund. Please remember that you cannot cancel after the grace period or get a refund if you miss your event.

Can I reschedule my event?

You can reschedule your appointment before your event date. Please contact us at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled experience. However, please note that we cannot guarantee an immediate slot during peak seasons.

How do I reschedule or cancel my event?

  • To reschedule, send a reply to the confirmation email which you would have received after making your reservation. Please make sure to include your new desired date and hour. Our staff will do their best to fit you in your new slot and send you another confirmation. There will sometimes be cases where your new schedule is already occupied, so please wait for our reply so we can coordinate with you.
