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.

My partner and I booked the 'Nora Ocean Villa' which was at a great deal on their website. Cheaper than booking.com etc. The room was better than we had ever expected. It was a very spacious room with a balcony that had an amazing ocean view and pool view. The bathroom was a bonus for us as the shower was big enough to fit us both and the shower head was taller than my 6 foot partner so he was very happy that he didn't have to bend down to shower. We loved the skylight above the shower so we could see the sun shining and the clouds while we showered. The place itself is very quiet and gives off a relaxing vibe. The pool was great, happy hour going in the afternoon and in the evening which was great. It is also very close to the ocean shore so you can choose to have a dip in the ocean or in the pool. This option was amazing! We hired a kayak at the hotel too. Staff are very friendly and assist you the best way they can. The staff managing the pool and pool bar were very laid back, great to speak to and pour AMAZING COCKTAILS! I would definitely stay here again! Loved every bit of our stay. Read less

My wife and I stayed in the Nora Beach Resort and Spa for our 30th wedding anniversary. The resort was fairly quiet during our stay, with nowhere near full occupancy. The service was excellent, particularly at the reception desk. Nothing was too much trouble to these girls, who always served you with a smile. We stayed in a Beachside Pool Villa, which was just wonderful. It was very peaceful and very spacious and well appointed. The food in the resort was very good. We got room service several times and the food was hot, tasty and plentiful and the service friendly and prompt. Our pool was kept nice and clean. The resort wasn’t too badly placed and offered plenty of tours and other outside activities, booked for us by the girls at reception with typical efficiency and courtesy. The only bits of criticism I could offer would be the terrible attitude and demeanour of a very young girl working in the bar directly below reception, who glared at us every day when we greeted her. This is not what is needed at a good resort like this. Also, the cleaning of our villa was poor every day, very rushed and not at all thorough. One day our toilet wasn’t cleaned and the cabinet on which was the only place to make tea and coffee was rarely cleaned of scattered sugar. Our tea, coffee and sugar did not get replenished on a single occasion, meaning we had to replace it from the breakfast area each morning, which made us quite uncomfortable as we felt like we were stealing it. Also, the allocation of beach towels was very sporadic, varying from two to a farcical six one day. Overall a very good resort. We would love to go back to Koh Samui one day, and if we do we wouldn’t entertain the idea of staying anywhere else. The good points outweigh the small negatives by a long way. Overall a great experience. I rate it an excellent four and a half stars. Read less

We stayed here for 7 days in August 2019, nice room with a view. Staff very helpful, lovely breakfast and gardens well maintained. Not that far to walk along the beachfront to the Main Street. We would stay here again.

Wife and I stayed in the beachfront villa which was as advertised. The grounds and main pool were beautiful as well. Drinks were well crafted. Breakfast was good but not as great as other hotels I’ve stayed in, however eating right on the beach shortly after sunrise helps. They will send a golf cart to your room to bring you to the lobby on request (it’s quite a long walk uphill from the villas). Front staff will also grab Tuk Tuks or taxis at request as well. Overall great hotel. Read less
