Nora Beach Resort and Spa

Koh Samui, Thailand

The hotel

You’ll wonder if you’ve been transported back to the Siam of old at the Nora Beach Resort & Spa, a beautiful resort that combines a traditional Thai-style design with modern luxuries. The luxurious villas at the Nora Beach Resort & Spa are very spacious and are spread throughout the grounds with stunning views of the lush gardens or across the beautiful ocean.

Nora Beach hotel owns a piece if my heart! A beautiful resort embracing nature and it just stunning to walk through during the day and night time. The room I was staying in was absolutely beautiful with an amazing view of the pool, beach and sea. The breakfast buffet and dining at the hotel is fantastic. Highly recommend going to this hotel and having bed and breakfast! You will not be disappointed with the options available and you will be able to try something that you may not have thought is breakfast but just works. There is excellent transport from the resort to Koh Samui Town. This is my favourite place in the world right now and hopefully one day, I will be back to see it one more time. Read less

Good bathroom/shower facilities. Excellent air conditioning which is essential. Breakfast plentiful choice and good quality served 06:30 to 10:30. Good choice of snacks and cocktails at pool bar. Good quality food in restaurant both Thai and Western and room service available. Plenty of sunbeds at pool or facing beach. Pool and pool bar open 07:00 to 19:00. The resort is situated at the quiter north end of Chaweng beach so peaceful and relaxing. Chewang is walkable but couple of minutes in a taxi. Good selection of shops at Central festival shopping centre. There is a well stocked supermarket a couple of minutes walk from the hotel. Weather was hot and sunny during the whole stay. All of the staff at this resort are very welcoming , pleasant and polite. This resort is a good choice for a relaxing stay with good facilities and still close enough to the action in Chaweng town, Read less

Dreadful service! We were upgraded because their other hotel was a flee pit however, this complex was nice but food and service was horrendous. If I had payed the full amount for this complex I would be initiating a formal complaint and seek refund! Language barrier is extreme and duty of care for customers is appalling. DO NOT BOOK THIS COMPLEX
