Nora Beach Resort and Spa
Ranked #15 of 103 Hotels in Chaweng
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 September 2012

This hotel is about 5minutes drive from the main and very busy arae of Chaweng beach. If you are looking for a place close to all the vendors on the beach, the shops and restaurants, this might not be the place for you. If you are looking for a quieter atmosphere its great. The pool is nice, not very big but big enough, you need to get there early to find a chair. The beach is a narrow strip and the water there is shallow. The one thing that quite disturbed us is the fact that it was not mentioned anywhere that the hotel is on a steep hill. If you get a room close to the beach, the pool and dining room it will be fine, but if your room is closere to the reception area its quite a climb every time you want to return to your room. Not the end of the world, but it is something I would have liked to know in advance. We stayed in the garden villas and the rooms were big, clean, tnere was an outdoor shower that was fun to use. The manager of the hotel was very nice and helpful.

On arrival at the hotel we were told our choice of rooms in the main hotel block weren't available but we were upgraded to a garden villa.. AMAZING!! Location is great, less than 10 mins from Chaweng and only 50 baht each in one of the many tuk tuks that can be found on the main street. Was a wide variety of food at the breakfast buffet and found something to eat every morning. View walking down to the pool with the beach in the background was stunning. Would definately stay here again!

Room Tip: Garden villas are amazing.

This hotel is some distance from Chaweng main strip.. Stayed in a Tropical Suite.. big room with spa.. The staff will assist with anything you need.. very helpful.. Breakfast is good.. The pool and beach are good.. Hotel is right on the beach.. The hotel massage is great but expensive..very good and relaxing.. Beach chairs are a problem as other people put their towels on a chair and reserve all day.. this is frustrating.. There are a couple of good restaurants outside the hotel if you want a cheaper option.. From the road turn left down the hill.. A convenience store down the road a few minutes for water and snacks etc.. If you want a basic cheap massage.. try Orange Massage next to the convenience store..

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!

Room Tip: Take the time to tell management about good service that you have recieved and expect them to go out...
