Subject: Schedule and effect of Tongsai Grand Villas (TGVs) transformation to Tongsai Pool Villas (TPVs) and Seafront Pool Villa (SPVs)
Date: 8 Oct – 20 Dec’18
Location: from Villa 510 -515 (except 511)
Working time: 08:00 - 17:00 daily
Details of the work:
510 - adding a 9 x 3 metres pool.
512 - 514 adding a 22.5 m2 pool
515 - adding a larger pool of 27 m2 to the villa
We are going to do a mock up redesign of the interior of a Villa (512)
Pleases note, there’s only going to be ONE mock up villa this year.
Effect to guests:
We will have to block off existing TPVs and hence take them out of the inventory altogether for the whole duration of the work (08 Oct - 20 Dec ’18).
SPVs will be available but only from 16 November onwards since they are in the front row but will be in close proximity of the pool addition site, roughly from 40 - 80 meters depending on which Villa.
So this is to say that SPV will be blocked off from the inventory from 08 Oct - 15 Nov ’18.
The following will be the distance from the beginning of pool adding site (villa 510):
The distance from the half moon pool = approx 80 metres
Distance from Polad Beach Bistro = 155 metres
From the beach = 180 metres
From the main pool = 190 metres
From the Lobby and Chef Chom’s = 130 metres
From Beachfront Suites = 230 metres
From Cottage suites, Seafront Cottages and Pool Cottages and Prana Spa = 230 – 390 metres
Below you can see the work area (dotted in red) as mentioned earlier.
Please note most distances are with elevation from sea level to approximately 20 metres above sea level.
Overall noise level is expected to be low to medium depending on location. We expect SPVs effect to be medium. For other areas the effect to guests should be low to none.
Sight of the working site will be screened off by 4-metre bamboo fencing.
I assume that the adding of the swimming pool to each Villa will not be so loud since most will be concrete work. The workers will be instructed to cut any pieces of mosaic or tiles during the tiling of mosaic process outside of the hotel premise so that we can minimize the piercing tile-cutting noise.
The mock up room of 512 will see a lot of dismantling of wood and installation of wood inside and replacing part of the wooden floor on the terrace. We will cover up the front facing the beach so that any noise should be reflected back in the other direction towards the back of the resort and away from rooms and public area.
In any case, in view of the above, we would like to offer the following to all in-house guests who stay between 8 Oct – 20 Dec’ 18 as compensation for any inconveniences:
1. Daily one hour cocktail party from 15:00 – 16:00 hrs with selected alcoholic and non- alcoholic drinks and a selection of light canapés served at our Po-Lad Beach Bar.
2. 20% discount off all Prana Spa treatments.
3. 10% discount on food & beverage. This can be combinable with any other discount offer for up to 20% total discount only.
4. A subsidy of 50% of taxi cost from our partnering taxi company SES to and from Choengmon, Chaweng and Bophut beach only. The subsidy will not apply to other taxi company or independent taxis which are NOT SES taxis.
I do hope that the above information answers any questions or uncertainty about the mentioned schedule work during 08 Oct - 20 Dec ’18. Please inform those who have booked that far in advance and inform those who could be potentially booking The Tongsai Bay during the said period so that they can make a fair decision about their travel plans.
