Balance Due available at a glance on the dashboard

An easier check-in process

Now you can see whether guests arriving today have a balance due, right on the dashboard.

Many retreat centers use the Retreat Guru dashboard to check-in guests and to see who’s arriving today. Now you’ll see right away whether you need to collect a payment from a guest during their check-in process.

Customize the Guest Statement per Program

Now you can update the way your guest statements look.

Instead of just using the default template, you can add your retreat center’s logo and branding, re-name the guest statement and add notes to it. And you can have a different guest statement for every retreat you run.

Pre-populated waiver forms

Save time while checking-in your guests.

Do you have waiver forms that guests fill out and sign when they arrive at your retreat center?

You can now speed up the check-in process by printing batches of waiver forms with your guests’ personal info already filled out and ready for them to sign. This is especially helpful when big groups of guests show up at once.

Create 1 waiver form template and Retreat Booking Guru will print out individual waiver forms for each guest with their name, stay dates and any other information you specify already included. A signature is all that’s required from your guest!

Sample pre-populated waiver form:
