We were warned about building work before we left, and yes, they are extending the rooms with a new block alongside the beachside swimming pool next to the Spa centre. Possibly they were using rubber hammers but we were not bothered by any noise at all and they were already up to the first floor. Noise will not be a problem if you are at all concerned.
Robert Claesson the manager runs a very professional yet personal hotel here where the guests always comes first. He recommended a local trip up the river and a visit to a tea plantation to break our time up... both were great value and very interesting particularly the long Tuk-tuk drive past Unawatuna and through the hillside villages.
This is a very special hotel to stay at.
