Do the staycation styling packages include the hotel accommodation?

Can I be present during setup?


As part of our COVID-19 safety measures, ALL setups are strictly contactless. This means that the room has to be empty and only our piña crew members will be in the room to setup. Should you have your own setup to do, please ensure it is done before or after we have setup your room. If for any reason there happens to be non piña crew members around, we will not be able to proceed with setup till the room has been vacated. Rest assured that this policy is in place for the safety of both our team and yourself, with no exceptions.

As each package contains decorative elements that have been carefully curated to reflect the aesthetic and quality of Pineapple Express, these are fixed & cannot be changed. However, minor changes that do not affect the quality, value and aesthetic of the package can be made. Enquire further to know what these are.




What if I do not want a particular element in the package? Can I replace it with an item of my own choosing?

If I do not want the item replacement, can I get a discount on the package price instead?


Should you wish to forgo the substitute, please be advised that the package price will remain the same as all prices are non-negotiable.




Is a security deposit necessary for rental add on options?


Yes we do require a $50 security deposit for rental items and this will be refunded to you the day after setup and upon receivable of the items in good condition.
