From the varanda we could see the sea. The swimming Pool and beach were beautiful and the staff absolutely amazing, very friendly and always helpful. The only small disappointment was the breakfast, not a lot of choice. I absolutely love this hotel and would recommend it anytime. Location is also perfect. I will come again for sure !

Enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Nora Beach Resort. With daily happy hours throughout the day. Ended up enjoying a lot of happy hours down in the swim up bar in the pool. Lots of seating areas and right on the beach front. Great facilities and lovely staff. Some delicious buffet breakfast options as well. Only about 5-10 mins from Chawang Beach.

This place is excellent from the resort its self to the location to the food breakfast literally you are spoilt for choice, and the amazing friendly staff everyday morning and day you are greeted with a smile even from the cleaners and gardeners an extremely friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The pool was cleaned every morning and the ground to nora are kept to a very high standard just every where in the resort was immaculate. The bar staff cha cha, woa, joke, and boa as well as all the other was great fun to be around. I literally can't fault this place they attended to everything we needed and more. We hired a bike from just across the road with no issues at all left passport and was given straight back to me on return of bike. All I have to say is ignore bad reviews on this place what few there are, this place is just incredible and me and my wife are definitely coming back to this resort I actually would want to stay any where else on the island Nora beach thank you for an amazing holiday and see you all soon.

Myself, husband and teenage daughter stayed in a beachside pool villa for a week. All I can say is wow! Absolutely the best villa we’ve ever stayed in. Really big rooms, very clean, own private pool and courtyard. Steps to a gorgeous white beach which we must’ve seen only a couple of people walk by each day. Definitely worth paying the extra for (we got an absolute bargain ‘room only’ through virgin - worth checking for deals) only minor niggle was that we were told we could only have 2 sun loungers even though there were 3 of us (family a few doors down had 4???) and the bed is really really hard. Didn’t spoil in any way though. The resort is absolutely beautiful and we loved the little paths down to the beach/restaurant. Breakfast was brilliant with lots of choice. Staff are amazing and very helpful. Chaweng is very busy and Nora Beach is a little oasis away from the hussle and bustle whilst only being 5 mins away by taxi (£5) There is a 7/11 shop a few mins walk selling very cheap groceries and drinks and some lovely restaurants a few minutes more. Make sure you visit Fisherman’s Village - 15 mins by taxi (£10). Friday night there is a street market with live music. Atmosphere is fantastic but we also went on another night and ate at a restaurant on the beach watching the sunset. Truly amazing. Trips - we did the Samui Island tour with Go Samui. Nimbus trip lasting 6 hours to see temples, waterfall, local town and grandfather/grandmother rocks. Only about £15 each. Fantastic day though traffic is a nightmare!! Other trip I highly recommend is the Red Baron boat trip to Angthong National Marine Park. More expensive than others by speedboat but what an amazing experience. From 8.30-6.30 with so much gorgeous food all day long and spectacular views. Boat holds 80 but only take about 30 so so much room. Anyway back to Nora Beach. All I can say is thank you for such a fantastic holiday. I would definitely recommend your hotel and really hope to come back soon. Read less

Not really impressed with the hotel and staff, seemed like the staff could have been trained better. Rooms were OK, nothing that stood out. Had to have the maintenance team sort out the shower which did not drain correctly and the door to the room would not open on the first try.

Not really impressed with the hotel and staff, seemed like the staff could have been trained better. Rooms were OK, nothing that stood out. Had to have the maintenance team sort out the shower which did not drain correctly and the door to the room would not open on the first try. The beach was however the highlight of the trip, open and barely used by the tourists, sometimes it felt like i was the only one in the ocean. Read less
