Where cultural beauty meets

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 27, 2009

"Nora" is named after the traditional dance of southern Thailand.
The resort enjoys a spectacular hillside setting, overlooking a secluded bay just north of the famous Chaweng Beach.
One of the most charming featurs of the resort is the terraced stream, which runs from a pool in the lobby and gently flows through the grounds before plunging off a waterfall and mixing with the waters of the Thai gulf.
The "Ocean Pool Villa" which was our choice of suite is situated right on the beach front, with our own exclusive private pool and jacuzzi and a view of Chaweng's secret beach.

Unique Quality: 138 suare meters of accomodation. Polished wooden floors, dressing room, bathroom with showers.
The lounge has a DVD player, TV, bar fridge and beautiful comfortable sofas, overlooking your pool as well as the beach.
You can "Hop" out of your open lounge window into the pool.....so different.

The Best on Ko Samui

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

This must rate as one of the best hotels/resorts we have stayed at. We have stayed at many excellent hotels, especially in South Africa where we have top standard hotels. The Nora was a wonderful experience. Koh Samui is a very small island. I would rate this as one of the best resorts. We had a Villa on the beach, with 138 sq metres of acommodation with our own private beach, pool and jacuzzi. The service was outstanding. It is a little more expensive than the standard hotels, but well worth it. Service was top rate. When calling for anything, whether it be room service, beach towels or a ride to the main lobby, we were attended to within minutes. The restaurant was outstanding. Beautiful accomadation with rose petals floating in your bath, or frangipani on your bed. Loved it!!!!

Unique Quality: Lovely quiet beach.

5 star comfort...at Nora

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 3, 2008

Nora Resort & Spa is a very good place to spoil yourself.You get what you pay for here "5 star service".The resort is about 10 minutes from the airport.It is situated on a lush green hill that winds down to a beach,so you can enjoy both the sea and the wonderful curved pool with a swim up bar .There are 40 villas the sea views are by far the best.The resort also has a cheaper 3 storey hotel with terraces as well.This resort offers basically everything you need at 4000-8000 baht per night depending on rooms and season.Nora is "post card stuff".

Unique Quality: The restaurant here serve very nice food the buffet breakfast is awsome.Go the Nora's wing cocktail when chilling around the pool.If you want to check out the island or beaches nearby there are free canoes for guest.For swimming Nora's beach is a little rocky but if you go paddle to the next beach it's much better.A word of warning , people try to reserve banana chairs around the pool at the crack of dawn .A punch up almost started between an Aussie and a Frenchman.So getting a spot in the sun is serious business here.Anyway the staff at Nora where all very nice and friendly.

This place is truly beautiful. Tropical gardens, running streams and ponds. The service is great and amenities are too.

Unfortunatly, there was a minor stuff up with our bookings, due to Qantas holidays we believe, and when we arrived at the hotel they did not have a booking for us, only a cancellation. They were more than helpfull and accomodating, they put us in our intended room for one night, moved us to the Chaba Cababa the next night and then for our remaining 4 nights we got an upgrade to a villa! The whole thing was pretty painless and now we are in the unique position of being able to recommend 2 1/2 hotels on one trip to Koh Samui! The Nora Beach standard room, the Chaba Cabana and the Nora Beach Villa!!

Unique Quality: The Nora Beach is set on a the side of a hill, about 4kms from the centre of Chaweng Beach main street. This is where you get shopping and meals. You can get a taxi or tuk tuk truck which takes all of a few minutes to get to the hotel. Only costs about 40 baht, although you may be able to get it for cheaper. So if you want to be at the centre of the action, stay in town. However if you want real relaxation, stay at the Nora.

They have a free internet service for guests, a great little cocktail bar, pool right next to the beach, swim up bar, pool side meals, a spa where I got a fantastic Thai massage and a restaurant where they have nightly themes and entertainment.

If you can't get around all that well, be aware that from the lobby to the beach - where the pool and food is - is a bit of a hike and is on a slope.

All up a really great stay.

The Nora Beach hotel is situated on the outskirts of Chaweng beach - about a 5 min ride in a tuk tuk.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Nora Beach Resort last July. The Staff were friendly and helpful attending to all your needs and organising tours/golf etc.
I would definitely return to the Nora Beach hotel.

Unique Quality: Our hotel room had a balcony with great views looking out to the sea. The swimming pool is literally on the beach, with a poolside bar serving cocktails which can be drank whilst sitting in the pool on the bar stools! The breakfast was good - fresh fruit, cooked breakfast and a range of cereals,breads and fruit juices. In the reception area there are 2 computers with internet access - free of charge. Didn't eat in the restaurant at lunch or at night - found the prices a bit higher than restaurants and the choice was nothing special.
The hotel and villa is built on a slight hill -
so if you have walking difficulties this may not be for you.
