You understand that any violation of any supplier's conditions of purchase may result in: cancellation of Your reservation(s) or purchase(s); Your being denied access to any flight(s), Property(s), automobile(s), activities, or service; Your forfeiting any monies paid for such reservation(s) or purchase(s); and LHW debiting Your account for any costs LHW incurs as a result of such violation.

Just as each of our member hotels, resorts and spas is unique and distinguished, their respective rates, packages, special promotions and policies may vary. We always ask our guests to verify these details when making or confirming a reservation at a member hotel.
Through this Site, LHW provides an online platform through which temporary accommodations offered by Properties, can advertise their rooms for reservation, and through which users to the Site (“Users” or “You”) can make such reservations. By making a reservation through the Site, the User enters into a direct (legally binding) contractual relationship with the respective Property. From the point at which the User makes the reservation, LHW acts solely as an intermediary between the User and the Property, transmitting the details of the reservation to the relevant Property and sending the User a confirmation email for and on behalf of the Property. Payment will be made directly to the Property.
A copy of any reservation confirmation will be provided to you. LHW also retains official records of reservation transactions, including details of dates of stay and room rates. In the event of discrepancies, alterations, modifications, or variations between this confirmation and our official records, our official records shall control. Tampering with this confirmation to alter the room rate or any other reservation information is strictly prohibited and will have legal consequences.
Some Properties have an early departure fee. Some rates may also require a minimum stay. You may change your departure date without a fee only if your rate plan and the applicable cancellation/revisions policy permit. Please contact your nearest LHW Reservations Office if you have any questions.
In the event of payments made directly to the Property on site, rates quoted and confirmed in non-local currencies will be converted to local currency by the Property at your time of payment, based on the exchange rate used by the Property and are subject to exchange rate fluctuations. Credit card charges may be subject to additional currency conversions and fees by banks or credit card companies at the time of processing of monthly statements, which are not within the Property’s or LHW’s control and may impact the amount charged to your credit card. Please contact your nearest LHW Reservations Office if you have any questions. A refund of a deposit or prepayment, if any, will be subject to the exchange rate at the time of any such refund and may differ from the exchange rate at the time such deposit or prepayment was made.
A maximum of 4 rooms may be booked online. Reservations for 5 to 9 individual rooms require prior approval from the Property, so please contact your local LHW Reservations Office for assistance. For 10 or more rooms please contact the sales department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As some rates have special requirements at check-in, you should verify that you qualify for the rate that you have reserved. Properties are not obligated to honor this rate if you do not qualify or do not have proof of qualification.
Some rate plans require prepayment in full and are non-cancelable, non-refundable, non-changeable and non-transferable. This will be identified in the rate description. For these rate plans, once you make a reservation, your credit card will be charged for the full amount. Credit will not be given for any unused reservation and the amount paid by you for such reservation cannot be used toward any other/future reservation.
For reservations guaranteed with a credit card at the time of making your reservation, rooms are held until the Property check-out time the day following the day of arrival on the reservation. The Property may authorize the room rate for the first night, including taxes on the credit card to determine the validity of the credit card. Rooms booked with an invalid credit card are subject to immediate cancellation.
For reservations not guaranteed with a form of payment at the time of making your reservation, rooms are held until the set cancellation time per the rules of the reservation. In the event a guest cannot be accommodated due to the Property overbooking or an unforeseen circumstance, and the Property is unable to hold rooms consistent with this room hold policy, the Property will attempt to accommodate guests, at its expense, at a comparable property in the area for the night(s) for which the Property is unable to accommodate such guests, and will pay for transportation to that property, provided the guest grants an express prior consent for such re-accommodation.
Travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than others. LHW urges guests to review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements and advisories issued by a guest’s country of residence, as well as those of any destination country, prior to booking travel. Please contact the appropriate government office in your locale for information on conditions in various countries and the level of risk associated with travel to particular destinations. LHW does not represent or warrant that travel to, or accommodations in, destinations where services are offered is advisable or without risk, and is not liable for damages or losses that may result from travel to, or staying in, such destinations except for damages or losses caused by LHW's fault or negligence.
Although some Properties will confirm specific room types or bed types at the time you make your reservation, normally requests for specific features such as bedding type or non-smoking rooms are simply that. While most Properties will strive to honor your request, neither LHW nor the Property can guarantee that your request will be honored.
If you plan to travel with your pet, we recommend that you confirm directly with your nearest LHW Reservations Office that the Property does, indeed, accept pets. LHW accepts no responsibility for the pet policy at any individual Property. Specific pet policies may require a damage/cleaning deposit at the time of check-in which may be non-refundable.
Cancellation policies and other information about specific room reservations and Properties may vary by Property and by the type of reservation and may entail a cancellation penalty or processing fee. To cancel or modify a reservation made online, please visit www.LHW.com . Reservations made through a travel agent must be cancelled through that agent, as the agency controls the record. For assistance with all other reservations, please contact LHW at 1-800-223-6800 if you are calling from the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Otherwise, please contact your nearest LHW Reservations Office. For all cancellations made through LHW, a cancellation number will be provided to you. A cancellation number is required as proof of cancellation, but will have no effect on any cancellation penalty or fee that may be due pursuant to the applicable cancellation policy. Please note that reservations cannot be canceled via e-mail.
LHW is acting hereunder solely for the purpose of processing reservations. LHW does not own or manage any Property and will not enter into a direct reservation and accommodation contract with you. Information regarding rooms, facilities and services offered at the Property contained in this website has been provided by the Property. LHW does not make any representation or warranty, express or implied, of any kind with respect thereto.
Neither LHW nor any Property will be liable for any change or cancellation of any reservation that is caused, in whole or in part, by events of force majeure as defined by the competent Courts.
The following terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions”) apply to your membership in The Leaders Club program (“The Leaders Club”) of The Leading Hotels of the World, Ltd. (“LHW”).

You will only be eligible for Leaders Club benefits and Leaders Club points when you make a reservation through an eligible booking channel as described below (“Eligible Booking Channel”) and provide your Leaders Club membership number.

Only you as The Leaders Club member on the account may take advantage of The Leaders Club benefits. Members will receive benefits based on the following conditions:
You are also entitled to priority status for a one-category upgrade at arrival to be arranged by the Member Hotel, if available, at check-in, provided you have not used a pre-arrival upgrade for that stay.
Room types and categories will vary among the Member Hotels. A one-category upgrade priority at arrival is at the discretion of the Hotel, which will take into account the membership level and upgrade availability on the day of arrival, and is not guaranteed. An upgrade to, or within, a suite category room is also in the sole discretion of the Member Hotel.
As a Leaders Club member, you will receive a complimentary continental breakfast for you and one guest staying in your room during each day of your stay. If you book multiple rooms during a stay, only you and one additional guest staying in your room are eligible for the complimentary continental breakfast each day. A guest who is not residing in your room is not eligible to receive the complimentary breakfast benefit. You are not eligible for any compensation in the event that breakfast is included in the room rate.
Early check-in and late check-out are subject to availability and to the specific Member Hotel arrival and room pricing policies.
As a Leaders Club member, you will receive complimentary in-room WiFi access during your stay. You are not eligible for any compensation in the event that WiFi is included in the room rate or not offered at the Member Hotel.
Leaders Club special rates may be available to you from time to time and will provide additional discounts for Leaders Club members. The Leaders Club special rates, if available, may not be combined with any other discounted rate or offer.
Your Leaders Club membership entitles you to accrue Leaders Club points that you can redeem for complimentary stays at Member Hotels.
Leaders Club points can be redeemed at a Member Hotel for redemption nights, subject to availability at that Member Hotel at the time booking.
In the event of death, we may, in our sole discretion, allow your unredeemed Leaders Club points to be transferred to another Leaders Club member’s account upon our receipt and review of all requested documentation. However, your Leaders Club membership status and the related benefits, including, without limitation, pre-arrival upgrades, will not transfer to the recipient of the Leaders Club points.

Your Leaders Club Membership status and the related benefits, including, without limitation, pre-arrival upgrades, will not transfer to the recipient of the Leaders Club points.
The following terms and conditions will apply to Leaders Club memberships that exist prior to September 26, 2018.
You will forfeit your complimentary night certificate if you do not check into the hotel on the arrival date specified on your reservation confirmation or if you do not cancel the reservation within the hotel’s free cancellation date. It is your responsibility to be aware of hotel’s cancellation policies.
If you cancel a reservation for which you used a complimentary night certificate that you booked prior to September 26, 2018 for a stay after September 26, 2018, you will not receive a return of your complimentary night certificate. In lieu thereof, you will receive Leaders Club points that can be used towards a future redemption booking. The amount of points you receive will be calculated based on a one night stay at the Leaders Club average room rate at the specific member hotel at which the complimentary certificate was originally booked. It may take up to ten (10) days for the points to appear in your account.
If on September 26, 2018 you have any existing stay credits but have not earned a sufficient number of stay credits to earn a complimentary night certificate, we will convert those stay credits to Leaders Club points based on the room rate you paid when you earned the stay credit, with a minimum of 1,250 points being awarded. For example, if you paid USD $1,000 per night for two nights at a Member Hotel (a total of USD $2,000) for which you earned a stay credit, you will be awarded 2,000 Leaders Club points and the stay credit will be voided.
