When i first walked into the lobby after spending a few days in Bangkok i knew my holiday had just begun.
The staff greeted me with a cold towel and coconut juice and a friendly smile. The lobby itself was a piece of art and the adjacent waterfall to the lobby was very calming after the plane ride. The lobby also has free internet access for guests to use.
I had a wedding booked at Nora Beach Resort and as soon as i had checked in my wedding planner came to greet me and make sure everything was OK. Lloyd did such a great job with the wedding from my first e-mail enquiry to the day i departed. I had my reservations about an overseas wedding, but i assure you a wedding at this hotel will be the wedding of your dreams!
Lloyd was able to book me an elephant to arrive on with my dad and a Harley Davidson for my husband to arrive on, which will be a moment of the wedding that i will remember forever. Other touches like planting a love tree, the gorgeoug ceremny and reception set-up, the beautiful words in the ceremony, the Thai dancers and, of course, Abel, and his showband really made the day and night one i will always cherish.
Besides from my wedding though, the hotel has fantastic service, large rooms...i was fortunate enough to stay in a Nora Ocean Pool Villa (free upgrade) for the last few days of the stay and a Nora Pool Villa (free triple upgrade) for the first few days of the stay.
The pool villas are basically a one bedroom house that i would love to live in forever. Spacious bathrooms, bedroom and living room with access to your pool from the living room. These rooms come complete with waterfall outside shower and outdoor sala which is fantastic for relaxing in with a drink and a magazine.
The Nora Pool Villas are exactly the same as the Nora Ocean Pool Villas in layout but the Nora Pool Villas are more private and the Ocean Pool Villas are basically set on the sand with the blue water as your front yard.
I checked out the other rooms too (my friends and family had different type rooms) and all seem to be very spacious with wooden decor.
I stayed at the Sala Samui for my honeymoon in a Garden Pool Room and if i was to go back i would definately come to Nora Beach Resort. The Sala was a bit too quiet and away from Chaweng although it is a fantastic 5 star hotel in its own right.
The Nora Beach Resort and Spa has a very friendly/outgoing vibe to it but the the tropical feel of the resort with its lush trees also makes this hotel quite romantic.
Chaweng South i found had the best beach, Chaweng has the best shopping and Nightlife but for restaurants i definately recommend going to the Fisherman's Village at Bophut...very trendy mediteranian looking small restaurants and bars with amazing views and not busy and smelly like Chaweng.
