That's a good question. I will Email a friend staying in KL at the moment and ask him to have look. When we left in April the beach front bungalows were nearly complete externally and they were working on the internals. There was also construction in early stages at the rear of the site, a restaurant and reception perhaps? I'll post back as soon as I receive a reply.

Hi Gareth Hi Arandora....

Are we talking about the bungalows being built behind the restaurant on White Sand Beach...??...

If so,they were not complete when I was there in August....My observation tells me they were about halfway thru completion...

And I deduced that they were working towards completion before the high season rush...!!??...Perhaps around a November completion...!!??

Also,there was a lot of maintenance work being done on the restaurants and landscaping on White Sand,obviously gearing up for the high season....

We stayed at The Sarojin last month (Sep) and were unaware of any construction taking place at all. The neighbouring restaurants were tidying up and opening up. The bungalows to the front left are finished but unoccupied throughout our stay, no lights ever on or people around. We had a fantastic and peaceful time.

Hi cocotang,

The construction Gareth is referring to is the bungalow resort on the other side of the Sarojin from White Sand Beach that UKJ51 has referred to. It sounds as though the construction on the beach has finished but that the bungalows are not let (or fit for letting?) yet..

That's the rear of the same resort that we're talking aboutso it just shows how big it is and the concern about continuing construction noise.
