Any bookings or reservations you make – either directly with a hotel or through our affiliate partner, Agoda – are exclusively between you and the relevant party and are governed by that party’s terms of service. We are not a party to any contract, including but not limited to hotel bookings and reservations, entered into with any third-party as a result of advice, information or links found on our website.

The site may at times contain promotional codes, ‘promo codes’ or ‘discount codes’. These codes may offer discounts when booking directly with certain hotels, or special experiences, such as a free drink at said hotels.
These codes are agreed by us directly with hotels (used herein to refer to the hotel’s management and/or operating company). However, there is no contract between us and the hotel, or with any third party, that warrants or guarantees the validity or value of any such discounts or benefits, and we do not guarantee that the hotel will honour any promotion listed in connection with such codes.
Promotional codes are provided for information purposes only. Lanka Hideaways does not warrant or guarantee that any offer, discount or promotion listed in connection with any code is current, active, available or correct. Lanka Hideaways will endeavour to ensure information is current, accurate and correct, but makes no warranty or guarantee that information will be updated to reflect the current validity or availability of any code, discount or offer. Any reliance on offers attached to or listed in connection with promotional codes is at your own risk. Lanka Hideaways disclaims to the fullest extent permitted by law any legal responsibility for the validity of any promotional or discount codes.
Promotional codes are administered by hotels and are subject to change at any time, without notice. Hotels retain sole discretion over the validity of any promotional or discount codes. Hotels may refuse to accept these codes at any time. Lanka Hideaways takes no responsibility for any failure by a hotel to honour any offers or promotions listed in connection with any code.
Promotional codes have no equivalent cash value.
