“Comfortable and well located.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2012

Nora is just 7 minutes drive from the aiport and about 10 mins drive from the main Chaweng shopping street. The hotel has some paid and some complimentry shuttle service to and fro from Chaweng. Otherise it just costs 50 Bh per person in a tuk tuk. The hotel is clean, very green and very comfortable. The horticulture department deserves an A+ for their upkeep of the greenry. The staff and service was very friendly and nice. The buffet breakfast was elaborate and something to look forward to. The pool was large and though crowded it didnt make it inconvenient. The beach is also very nice. They also have a basic gym for a quick workout. Just one thing- Although well maintained and clean, to a discerning guest one can see signs of age in the bathroom - eg the washbasin not draining very efficiently, the flush requiring a bit more effort or the general fixtures may not be sparkling and new. Having said that, they would immeidately attend to any request in getting it reparied. We were in the ocean view villa. With its own infinity pool, gazebo, deck, jacuzzi and privatish strip of beach. The view was breathtaking of the most gorgeous blue serene sea dotted with a few fishing boats. Would love to come back to Nora beach resort again.

My partner and I stayed at the Nora Beach Resort using an "Ou Deal" voucher. Have to say it was absolutely wonderful. Staff were so friendly, helpful and always had a smile on their faces. Garden Studio Room was great! We were going to upgrade to Beach Room but glad we didn't!! It was lovely to sit on balconyin the afternoon with drink and listen to waterfall and peacefulness all around. Beautiful swimming pool and private beach. Food fabulous and I really loved secretly feeding the beautiful 3 cats that obviously have made the Nora Resort their home as well! I did notice lots of other guests doing the same at various meal times, so think the cats certainly know which side their bread is buttered on. We would certainly go back and stay again. Special thanks to Siriyakorn - Reservations Manager as we struck up an email friendship before we arrived so was nice to put a face to he name!

Room Tip: Garden Rooms easier access than beach rooms as resort is on a slight hill so you have to walk down t...

My husband and I got married in Koh Samui last month. We had the most wonderful experience with the staff of Nora Beach Resort and Spa. Although our wedding was held at their sister resort the Nora Buri (about a 10 minute walk from the Nora Beach), the staff at Nora Beach, especially our wedding planner Michelle and the Guest Relations Manager Pichet were the most helpful and amazing people we could have asked for to help us with our big day. The staff shows a lot of attention to detail when it comes to the day! Everyone was outstandingly friendly and polite at all times! We were upgraded to the Nora Villa which was the ideal size for us! They delivered breakfast to our room on the wedding day and made us and our 60 guests feel very special throughout the entire week! I cannot praise them enough :) Michelle and Pichet are wonderful event planners who know when to keep their distance and give some space while at the same time being very caring and attentive!
All our guests were very happy with the resort, the amenities and the service! The breakfast buffet was amazing, the pool bar a very nice feature and the location and the beach are just wonderful! We will definitely be back for our anniversaries and cannot wait to have another coconut water by the pool or the beach! Again, Michelle and Pichet, as well as the other staff at Nora Beach, made our trip a true once-in-a-lifetime experience. We couldn't have asked for more!

I have stayed at many hotels and resorts throughout Asia and this would have to be my favourite.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Nora Beach Resot & Spa for 8 nights as our friend was getting married in Samui and from the minute we arrived, we were completely taken care of.

The manager upgraded us to a Tropical Suite as it was my girlfriend's birthday which not many places would do. Maybe just an extra mint on your pillow...

The hotel is located just north of the main district called Chewang so if you do want to venture outside the resort, it is only a 200 baht trip into town. Not too far away but far enough that you don't have 20 year olds yahooing outside the resort.

I would thoroughly recommend staying here and I for one will definately be staying here again.

After all, I proposed to my girlfriend on the beach there and she is now my fiance!

On the 12th Of December 2011 my fiancé' and I were fortunate enough to marry at Nora Resort in Samui

Having so many of our friends and family there to celebrate, made our wedding day even more special.

Michelle Suwannasri the wedding co-ordinator at Nora Resort made organising the wedding absolutely stress free. Michelle was always quick at responding to my many questions in email regarding the wedding. The options for food, drinks, flowers and the overall wedding package was beyond our expectations. If we were ever stuck with a decision, the team at Nora were always there to lend some friendly advice.

We, & our guests were stunned by the way staff made every individual person feel so welcome & special upon arrival and throughout the whole day of our celebration. Our parents were referred to by name on every occasion.

Where do I start with our food -. Having a lot of big eaters at our wedding, we were a little concerned about the quantity offered in the buffet. But wow! It was just the opposite. We actually felt bad about how much was left. It had nothing to do the food itself, but the amount. Every guest have had a minimum of 2 servings each. we were all extremely satisfied. The presentation of each dish was extraordinary to say the least. Every detail and garnish was just perfect. Each dish was so well presented. To this day our friends & family still talk about it.

The alcohol - Again, we were worried about it running out. There was plenty to last the entire evening with 40 drinkers enjoying their favourite beverages.
The variety was again outstanding as well as the presentation of the drinks both alcoholic & non alcoholic.

Photographer - Nora suggested DoNudes Photography. We can't speak more highly of Chusakun Tapprasoeth. Chu was so professional and we were overwhelmed when we received the photo package. He did such an amazing job. (name) made us feel so comfortable doing our photo shoot and throughout the wedding. We didn't notice (name) and his staff mingling with guests taking shots but still managed to capture every amazing moment of the day/night.


A private wedding dinner was organised for us a few nights after the wedding. We were speechless when we arrived on the beach just after sundown. Walking down the path to find a beautifully lit aisle covered with flowers and at the end was a single table. We were spoilt with our very own chef and personally stocked buffet on our own piece of private beach. The chef prepared our meals to our liking, it was just such a perfect evening.

From the minute we arrived at Nora up until the moment we left, Michelle and all the staff made every waking hour so very special. The energy they put into making us feel welcome and relaxed was phenomenal. The time and effort put into making our wedding day & honeymoon one of a kind was so appreciated and unforgettable, Not only by us , but all our family & friends.

We can't recommend Nora Resort enough. But we can assure you , you will not be disappointed with any aspect of your wedding if you do decide to book your special day with Nora Resorts.

Lauren & Chad G.

Well what can we say...this was the most amazing place to stay at. The staff absolutely wonderful,the service ( apart from requesting extra drinking water,which took a few calls to housekeeping) we're all fantastic. We only stayed for 4 nights and wish it had been longer. We will return one day :)

This resort was suggested by Virgin holidays when we asked for honeymoon ideas one day which included either Thailand, the Caribean or the Maldives.

From the moment we arrived, we couldn't fault the service. A much appreciated cold, non alcoholic cocktail was given to us upon arrival, whilst we were sat in comfortable surroundings as the staff checked us in. And we were looked after in a similar vein for the rest of our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for these guys, who really do make you feel like they want you to have a great time.

One morning, I attempted to buy a voucher to use the wifi. Reception admitted the wi-fi throughout the resort was a touch flakey - and instead of selling me a voucher, suggested I sat in the bar and used theirs as it was more reliable - and free.

And the location is pretty much perfect. Far enough away from the busy and noisy parts of Chaweng beach to be beautifully quiet, yet only a few minutes away by taxi.

Breakfast was great, plenty of choice and an idyllic place to sit and wake up. We prefer to head out and eat in the evenings when on holiday so only ate there once - and it was only ok - and the duo singing left a little to be desired!

Venture out and the choice is huge and very reasonably priced. The most we paid for dinner was £50 (for both of us) - and was quite possibly one of the best meals we have ever had. The cheapest was £6. For both of us. And it was delicious.

If you fancy a proper Thai massage, head outside of the hotel gates, turn left and start to take your pick. Don't bother with the hotel spa, for the price of one treatment there, have several only a few minutes down the road. We had at least one treatment every day we were in Koh Samui - outside of the hotel it's very reasonable.

There's too many parts of the world I want to visit to return to the same holiday place twice - but if we were to come back to Koh Samui (and we loved it so much we're tempted) we'd stay here again.
