I would be pretty sure that al building works will be completed. When I was there in June they were at the final stages with some landscaping and finishing the Suites. There was no really noticable noise in June.

I did not know the extension to the Ocean Wing had started. It will be at the very southern end of the resort and will not worry you near the main poll, restaurants, bars, nature reserve or in the Garden Wing.

we are due to stay in Ocean wing in november just when piling works begin. We are not happy especially being told of this 5 weeks before we arrive. Thay must have planned for this months ahead. I have asked a number of questions from the hotel. I dont fancy spending my holiday next to a building site.

I will send an update once I hear more.

Hi. We have stayed before and booked direct with hotel as we got a better deal. We had an email direct from them re works only yesterday. Ocean wing is fantastic but just hoping works could be delayed. I have sent them a list of queries re programme of works and times of piling. If this is all day every day it will be very noisey if using piling hammer but not so bad if just drilling piles. I am still hoping that works will not be right on top of ocean wing. It seems it will remain open but will see what they say.

Fact remains they must have known of this work when we booked it in April so feel very let down by them.

I will do another post once i know more.

We are booked for Garden wing at the end of December. Did you get the offer to cancel from the hotel or your travel agent? The website says that Garden Wing will not be affected. I haven't been on the property so I don't know about the distances between the Ocean wing work site and the Garden wing rooms.

Our tour operator offered,we have stayed at RR before and it will be quite a distance to the construction site,but we think the price we were paying we don't want to stay on a building site !!!

Thanks. I know - with these prices one wants perfection. I have to think about this. Where will you be staying instead - at the other Shangri-La perhaps?
