Maalu Maalu and building work?

Hi, we are staying next week and wanted some peace and relaxation. Is there building work going on next door and if so, how disruptive would it be to our stay?

Hi there,

Not 'next door' as Maalu Maalu is in our memory of 5 months back still the most northern of the 'strip' there, and Uga Bay is directly next to it and open for quite some time. But directly next to Uga Bay are 1-2 more resorts under construction. Noise should not disrupt you, just a bit too far.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

But someone had mentioned in a Tripadvisor review that there was building work on one side? (If you're staying in an ocean suite)

Well Uga Bay was completed spring-summer 2013, hence if the review is from a stay upto and including that time the review was completely true ;-) Checked on Google Maps etc. also, nothing like construction visible on the northern side...

Have fun,

In room 37 and on that side of the resort there are building works occurring at a hotel going up next door.. It did create some noise and when reported to the manager he dealt with it quickly and refunded the money we had spent on food an drink. If staying in an ocean suite between June and September 2014 just chat to staff and ask about noise.

Well curious to know what building work it would be; as said the construction on the other side of Uga Bay should be too far away to disturb you. But do report back in your review once you're back ;-)

Tnx,

Well Uga Bay has certainly been done up and been running. The noise must be from the construction on the other side. A hotel called "Sun an Fun" or similar. They were supposed to finish up by July this year.

Well I'm at the Maalu Maalu right now and staring at a huge building going up through the gaps here. I can also hear the drills etc..... Not very good as it is right up close to the boundary. Thank fully we are over the Uga Bay side..!!!

Too bad, sorry for the incomplete info but January did not notice anything on that site. See how quickly things develop in Passi...

Tnx,
