“Good location, good resort.”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

We picked this resort as we wanted something close to but not to close to the action and this was perfect. For 100 baht you can get a tuk tuk into Chewang (taking about 5 minutes) but you are far enough away to get a good night's sleep too! This resort is probably more for couples and families but you are close enough to the nightlife if you want it. Our rooms were clean and spacious enough. The resort itself was attractive and served all our needs. I am surprised some reviews mention the bad service and discourteous staff, as we found all the staff to be very pleasant and friendly and the service efficient. The only thing that stopped me giving this resort 5 stars is that the food was probably a little bit average. But when you have so much choice around you, this wasn't really a problem. If you are someone who likes to eat at the resort every night then maybe reconsider. We didn't use the spa, as it was quite expensive compared with the many many cheap options you can get by walking out onto the street. Orange Massage down the road gave good massages for 250 baht. I would definitely recommend this resort for people wanting a relaxing base from which to explore Koh Samui. I thought it was good value for money and had a very pleasant stay.

we travelled as a couple for our honeymoon to nora beach resort. The resort was very extremely beautiful, though was away from the main chaewang beach. We stayed in the superior room and had a partial view of the sea.The room were extremely beautiful with a nice balcony and good privacy. The buffet breakfast in the morning had a good variety. we managed to hire a bike from a shop just walking distance away from the resort and it helped us commute at our convenience to the nightlife at chaewang. Most of the staff were courteous and unintrusive.The pool and beach areas were good though we didnt use it that often. In general , highly recommended for family as well as couples.

We booked the hilltop pool villas at around USD$300 per night which promised a spectacular ocean view. Instead, we looked onto the roof top of the villa in front of us. The staff were poorly trained, including housekeeping staff who barely cleaned the rooms and banquet staff who were rude. For the rates they charge I could recommend a ton of other venues at Koh Samui.

We stayed in the pool villa beachfront which was the best part of the stay
The service was very disappointing
Rude staff, long wait fr buggy rides as it was too sunny and lots of incline to reach the lobby
The villa had a fabulous loo with a huge tub but no warm water available to fill it any of the three days
Food was average for vegetarians
However location was great .
All three days there were marriages right in front of the private pool not leaving any privacy to us to enjoy the pool
The least they could have done was informed us of the same !

I went there for our honeymoon on 2010. As a newlywed we were looking for a nice and cozy villa with it's own private pool, terrace for sunbathing and all other pretty things and lucky for us, that is what we got on Nora Beach Resort. Our private villa is soooooo pretty! you will feel that you won't need to go out at all! I just love everything in it! the pool,the sunbathe deck, living room with it's giant window connected to the pool (awesome!), the cozy bed, and its huge bathroom! all of the room is filled with traditional thai style detail which is another awesome thing for me.

Beside our villa, the resort itself were designed nicely. from the beginning when you enter the entrance hall you will feel that you are about to enter a thai paradise, so beautiful! when you walking the pathway that leads into villas, rooms, swimming pool and restaurants you will see a cute butterfly feeding post, which is just a cute ideas. Swimming pool is huge with the beach as a background, and yes, the resort has its private beach. When we were there it was just us and a few other people so it was just quite and peaceful. perfect!

Service was really good. The reception staffs were helpful in assisting us, they help me in choosing the best trip to Koh Pangan. Our driver that pick us at airport was one of the best! we chats all the way and he is very helpful. Breakfast was served on the front restaurant, we're lucky to spot a table outside, because inside the resto was very crowded. On our last night we're having dinner on the beach side restaurant, I was hoping to seats by the beach and having a romantic moonlight dinner but it was full by the time we arrive. But lucky for us the restaurant staff were nice enough to put us on waiting list (even though it's fully booked already) and reserved a table for us, very sweet of her.

since my visit I always recommend Nora Beach Resort to all my friends that plan their honeymoon. It was a beautiful place to spent with your love one, i really enjoy it :D

We had our wedding at Nora Beach Resort in Feb.2012. What an amazing experience!!! It could not be better planned and organised. Many thanks to our wedding planner Michelle and hotel's team. Everything is possible for this guys to make your day special and unforgettable. I don't find myself an easy customer, but I was surprised of ability these guys to think ahead of me, offering me lots of different options when I was not sure with smth. If you are after professionals, then this is the right place. Beautiful hotel, nice location, delicious food restaurant, attentive and helpful stuff. Highly recommend!!!

Upon arriving at Nora Beach Resort we were blown away by its beauty. The entrance has a very Thai feel to it & you instantly know you have reached tropical paradise. Travel further down the resort and the view of the pool with the beach on its edge is breathtaking!
The hotel rooms are very spacious and definitely have a Thai resort feel however they are fairly dated. Complimentary fruit platter on arrival in the room.
As the hotel is placed on a hill & a very steep hill at that, travelling too and from the rooms to the pool or front of the hotel is a real mission, especially in the Koh Samui heat.
The beauty/spa is very $$$
As beautiful as this hotel is, it's not the place for the young. It's more so filled with couples and older patrons and very very quiet.
The buffet breakfast was standard and nothing too flash, the variety wasn't very vast, but we made do.
Unfortunately the hotel is not walking distance to the central part if Chaweng. You can't really travel in without getting a taxi.
Overall the hotel itself is beautiful, but not the best location.
