Staff very friendly ... older hotel .. food quite ordinary .. good cocktails and lovely pool .. a little far from the hub of Chewang but great if you want a quiet holiday .. clean beach in the front .. on a slope so be prepared to walk up the hill to your room ..they do have a golf cart to take you if don't want to walk .. Was given an upgrade to a suite .. quite ordinary .. Beds were hard

My husband and I recently stayed in a beachfront pool villa for our honeymoon. Wow, the villa was amazing! The views were beautiful along the beach and we loved swimming in our own private pool night & day. I don't have a single complaint about the villa, it was very special!! The resort is on an incline which won't suit everyone but the resort do offer to pick you up from your room in a golf buggy if you are feeling tired or lazy lol! Being that we were at the bottom of the resort, on the beach, we did use the service a couple of times if we had a lot of shopping with us. Otherwise, it's a lovely walk admiring the pretty gardens. The service is very good by most staff we encountered. My husband actually lost his wallet at a restaurant in Bophut & the lobby staff did all they could to help us - ringing up people, etc. Fortunately for us, a lovely Thai man - owner of a bar opposite restaurant found the wallet & we collected it the following day with all money & cards still there!! We didn't get housekeeping every day (our choice) but when we did, unfortunately it wasn't always the best. My husband had to ring up the front desk a couple of times because beach towels hadn't been left for us or our mini bar hadn't been restocked, etc. The only other disappointing thing apart from housekeeping was that no one made a big deal about us being there for our honeymoon - I know they must get a lot of honeymooners but we thought that they at least might have made our bed up upon our arrival or provided a fruit basket or something considering we were paying top dollar to stay in their best villa (we had worked hard to save for this trip!) - our first resort at Samui Palm Beach put flower petals all over the bed, brought us a fruit basket & a vase of flowers & specially baked us a beautiful chocolate honeymoon cake which was a very lovely touch. It wasn't until our very last night at Nora that my husband asked the staff if they could do something special for us as it was the last night of our honeymoon and they put a flower arrangement over our bed. A bit disappointing but overall, it was a lovely stay. Thanks for having us Nora Beach. We miss the pool villa already!

A well maintained property on the calm side of the beach. Stayed in family room with our two children and was comfortable and clean. Staff are very attentive and friendly. The pool is fantastic with swim up bar, two happy hours daily and the beach is only metres away. Gardens are manicured regularly, restaurant is great and resort overall has a very peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. Highly recommend!

The breakfast on offer suits tastes for everyone and anyone right down to gluten free and all those extra bits and is such good quality and on top of that you have it all with a beach/ocean view. Also my girlfriend wanted me to give a special mention to an amazing member of staff named 'Nine' he had a nice conversation with greeting her and asking where shes from, when she said she was from sicily, italy he was able to greet her in italian with such confidence that it shows he has put in the effort to learn small bits of different languages whilst also being fluent in english to provide a better experience to the foreign customers he meets everday and that little thing made a big difference for us and was glad to meet him. DEFIANTLY STAYING HERE WHEN I COME BACK...THANKS FOR EVERYTHING GUYS

We spent 7 days in koh samui, but only the last 2 at nora beach- we wish we had spent the entire week here! The staff were so friendly and welcoming. The room we booked had an ocean view and was beyond comfortable. The restaurants and bars were great, with the buffet breakfast offering a wide variety of food. The pool atmosphere was relaxing and the beach was blissful with plenty to see with some goggles. We will definitely stay here again when we return to koh samui.

Upon arrival at the hotel we were greeted by staff with big smiles, a lovely cool facecloth and a refreshing cool drink. Our room wasn't quite ready as we had arrived just after 1030am. However after undertaking the formalities of paperwork credit card swipe etc., we were told we could change and use the pool and our room would be ready just after lunch. Using the toilets to change in, we walked down the path to the pool. Our first impressions were that although the hotel was open plan, it was very clean, almost spotless, and we felt that we had made a great choice. From the moment we walked into the pool area, the staff could not do enough for us. We were shown were we could get towels. We were informed how the drink and food system worked and when happy hours ran from and to. Please take our warning; the sun is something we have not experienced before. Just that hour or so in the sun without protection we knew about it when we got to our room. That first lunch we ate in the restaurant and took in the fantastic view across the beach, bay and pool. We did eat here a few times for lunch and dinner. The food was very tasty and plentiful. On other occasions we used the little man and his boat who comes across the bay selling fresh fruit, coconut and barbecued sweetcorn. This is cheap and enough for lunch for two. The room was ready for us just after lunch and we were told that our bags would be taken to the room for us. Our room like the hotel was spotless; the gardens surrounding the hotel were well maintained and the pool area was kept in great condition. Throughout our holiday, we can state that the staff did not stop smiling. They were great. We were made to feel at home from the moment we arrived until the minute we left. If we were unsure of anything we could ask and we always received an honest answer. We were given good advise on where to go, and when we arrived back or the next day, we were asked if we had a good evening out or trip. The hotel is situated on a slight incline and will not suit everyone's mobility nor taste, however we did not find this a problem. Yes it can be a struggle in the heat of the day but its only a few minutes until you either relax on your balcony or in your room with the air con to help cool you down. Despite the hotel being on the main road to Chaweng, the noise could not heard once you had set foot in the hotel. The hotel is just right location wise as you are just slightly off the main drag to town, but close enough to experience Chawengs night life and fantastic restaurants. There is a free bus provided, however to experience the full hustle and bustle of nightlife and some crazy sights we would recommend the few bhat and take the open tuk tuks that can easily be hailed from anywhere. Our bed was comfy, the bathroom and shower area was spacious and clean. The pool and bar staff were great company, our thanks go to Mhao the lobby bar man. Toto the pool bar man, Rin, Ter, Aow, Bao and Charchar. These guys helped make our holiday. There was some good conversation and magic and drinks that they helped provide. We felt they became our companions after the two weeks.

I know they say while in Thailand, get a massage but the ones outside the resort dont compare. (I got both) Yes it's a little more pricy but it's worth it. First you go in, they give you tea to drink and have you fill out a questionnaire on how hard or soft you would like your massage. Any where you want them to work on more. Then they have you change, which they provide some really comfy and stretchy undies. I got Jaew as a masseuse and man she has the hands of a goddess . She knew exactly how much pressure to put on you. Her hands were very soft. No nails. (Some places I went, they have long nails and I'm assuming they dont realize they dig them into you that or they just don't care). I only stayed here a few nights but wish I would of done the massage on the first day not the last because i definitely would of gotten another one. I only ate at the breakfast buffet. They had a pretty good selection of food. I mean their American waffles were a bit funny looking but hey we are in Thailand. The only thing i did not like was that on their beach you have to watch out where you step. There are like coral and can seriously do a number on your feet. But water is nice and clear. Rooms are clean and we stayed in a villa which have both an outside shower to rise the sand as well as a bath tub and shower inside.

我們在撥水節時段住了3個晚上。第一晚本是訂了Nora Villa, 酒店 upgrade 了我們到 Nora ocean view villa。第二及三晚,我們本訂了pool villa, 酒亦upgrade 了我們到 Beach front pool villa。令我們十分驚喜及感謝。所以,以下的評論,我不排除是有點偏心的。 整体表現: 清潔,環境舒適。員工服務合乎水平,但可以再提高。食物水準一般,需要改進。管理層對房間內大少問題,非常重視及解決得很快。 Nora ocean view villa 房間沒有想像中大。Ocean view只是在樹枝中看到一小遍。清潔度一般。我並不太滿意浴室的設計,尤其是淋浴。冷熱水不是衡温的。暖水忽冷忽熱,十分難調較。有時過熱,會有點危險! Beach front pool villa 房間設計非常舒適。空間大,早、午、晚的海景十分美。對開海灘沒有遊人,私隱度可接受。十分推界此房間。 海灘 Ocean view Pool villa 對開的海灘不是太適合游泳。但天朗氣清時,海色很美。 Fire Dance 星期四晚餐廳有特別晚餐。有火舞表演。不太貴,十分推价。 總体上,我們有一個愉快的假期,滿意酒店的服務! 其實,我們有點後悔沒有訂多幾晚Pool villa 房呢!Thank you Nora Beach Resort!

My stay at Nora Beach Resort and Spa was perfect! Incredibly helpful staff, very clean room and a beautiful pool and beach. Great location with a busy town close by with lots of shops and restaurants. However if you're not in the mood to go out, there's a fabulous restaurant/bar on site with an idyllic view of the beach.

We enjoyed our stay very much, the resort was lovely and clean with a really nice pool right next to the beach! The room was a very good size with a lovely bathroom and it was cleaned every day! The breakfast included a large variety of food and the restaurant had a good menu! Good shuttle service also to chewang town, which at certain times is free! Overall enjoyed my stay very much and gone staff were very friendly and helpful!
