Deny receiving grand for time in resort (6)
I believe the answer is:
'resort' is the definition.
I don't understand how the rest of the clue works.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for refuge that I've seen before include "Place of safety", "'Sanctuary, asylum (6)'", "Traffic island", "we aim for on the way?", "Shelter or protection from danger or trouble".)
