*Please note*
We are aware of some building works at a neighbouring property to The Raga Hotel. The works are not taking place at the hotel directly and are not expected to impact any guests at The Raga Hotel. The works are planned for the interior areas of the neighbouring building and actions to mitigate any noise are being implemented. These include a dedicated ‘silent room’ in the centre of the property where all cutting machinery will operate. The management of The Raga Hotel are working with the buildings developer to ensure the guests of The Raga Hotel are not inconvenienced during their stay in Side.
