We do hope you and your loved ones are safe, during this trying period of the Covid-19 pandemic. We are grateful to have loyal guests like you, who have supported us over the years.
The safety and wellbeing of our guests and team members is of the utmost importance to us. In addition to our existing hygiene and cleanliness standards, we have implemented further preventive measures under the Rest Assured initiative, based on government guidelines, and have also redefined our cancellation/amendment policies and company house rules.
We understand that in these uncertain times, travel plans will get affected. For amendments and/or cancellation of existing bookings made directly with Colonia Santa Maria, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our central reservations team on +91 1610 9699 .
