Frequently Asked Questions
How many people am I allowed and what if I have additional swimmers?

Guest count per lounge:

Up to 5 additional guests can be added to your party booking. These additional guests are $10 per person if booked in advance and $15 if added on the day of your party. You can request to add these guests after your booking is confirmed.
If you intend to bring more than extra 5 guests, an additional lounge will need to be reserved in order to accommodate your group.
