As the situation around the new coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, the safety and wellbeing of our members, owners, guests and team members remains our top priority. We are closely following government instructions and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) and local health officials. As such, we have temporarily adjusted our cancellation policies and with keeping everyone’s health in mind, we have temporarily closed several resorts.

Government regulations surrounding COVID-19 change frequently. While we strive to provide the latest information to our guests, it is each individual’s responsibility to comply with such regulations, including any quarantine or travel restrictions. Before travel, please check and ensure you understand the regulations applicable to you based on your location, destination and party.

Important Hawaii Travel Protocols

All travelers must be tested for COVID-19 within 72 hours prior to flying to Hawaii. Only FDA-approved nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs) processed by a CLIA-certified laboratory will be accepted. A negative COVID-19 test result is required. Guests may also be subject to temperature checks upon entering and exiting the resort. Any guest showing symptoms may be required to follow local health department protocols, including, but not limited to, mandatory quarantine. If you plan on flying to another island during your Hawaiian vacation, the mandatory 14-quarantine period remains in effect for all inter-island travelers, except for those traveling to the Island of Oahu. Because travel restrictions may change, please be sure to frequently visit the Hawaii Department of health website at https://hawaiicovid19.com/travel/#travel-FAQs for the latest information and list of accepted testing partners.

Reservation Options in North America

Diamond Resorts understands that these uncertain times call for additional flexibility, and we continue to take steps to offer you options with your membership. 

Effective September 2, 2020, members scheduled to arrive at any Diamond Resorts managed property in North America after September 1 can cancel any reservation up to the date of arrival without penalty due to any local, state or federal mandated closures. We will continue to evaluate this policy and adjust as necessary as the situation evolves. If a reservation is canceled due to the criteria outlined here, all points used at booking will be released back to the member’s account.

Reservation Options for the European Collection

At this time, we are assessing the travel climate in Europe to determine the best way to adjust our cancellation policy for our European members. Currently, our cancellation policy permits European members to cancel any reservation at a European Diamond Resorts managed property up to 15 days prior to arrival without any penalties. For reservations canceled within the time frame outlined here, all points used at booking will be released back to the member’s account.

If you have questions about your upcoming reservation, please contact your Club Member Services team for assistance.

While we are dedicated to assisting all members, owners and guests as quickly as possible, all of our call centers are experiencing unusually long hold times.

Guests who booked through an online travel agent or other third party, such as Booking.com, should contact their booking provider for information on their policies and for assistance.
