We went past it and saw there are new single storey buildings being constructed. I didn't see any heavy machinery or anything (it is Tioman so heavy machinery is limited to Tekek and it's immediate surrounds).

The buildings looked very nice and some of them were nearly finished. However we only went past in a boat so I have no idea if the noise will bother you if you're planning on staying at Bagus.

It is very different now. More and more houses are being built. There are two excavating/earth-moving machines there at the moment. The construction site is right next to Bagus Place, work is going on from shortly after sunrise until sunset.

It's hard to tell at the moment how many houses or rooms are going to be next door, but it looks like space for around 100+ guests and the new site is going to occupy 3/4 of the cove - only 1/4 of the cove is owned by Bagus Place. The nicer part of the beach is at Bagus Place and beaches are public in Malaysia - so where is everybody going to go?! Take a guess!

So this year it's going to be construction noise and from next year on no more solitude on the beach.

Thank-you for your rather bleak reading of the future! As the owners of Bagus Place we are keen to state that we are working with the owners of the new resort next door to be as sympathetic to the environment and our guests as possible. The new resort has independent access, our guests will still enjoy the privacy and seclusion of our own 3 acre plot. We are pleased to say that in most cases neighbouring resorts on Tioman Island are able to co-exist harmoniously in this paradise, and we have no reason to believe this will be any different in the future.

Hello, as an owner of Bagus Place I would like to direct you towards the numerous reviews since March which have been 5* and extremely glowing, some even mention the fact that they were not disturbed by the construction noise. Clearly most people are not put off by the prospect as we are fully booked from now until October. We hope you would also like to experience Bagus Place and Tioman Island, and look forward to welcoming you there (in October or in 2012!).

Co-existence is always possible, but the solitude is gone and that's what most people come for.
