"Nice hotel, excellent beach, amenities lacking."
Rooms average. Ran short constantly on towels and other items. Views from room very nice. Grounds very nice lots of walking up and down to beach. Staff incredible! Food average. Beach best on bay side.

We had a good stay at this resort. They have a lovely beach and swimming pool as well as good landscaping/greenery. Staff were nice and friendly. Forgot to clean our room on one of the days but attended to it promptly thereafter. Easy to find transport just outside the hotel but would be great if the hotel could increase the frequency of the shuttle to Chaweng beach. Also, would have been good to have more vegeterian options in the breakfast as well as the food menu.

"Too bad it rained for 4 dyas"
The hotel itself is lovely, with direct beach access and a pool. The staff is willing to help, although you need to ask/flag somebody down (i.e. you can get a drink at the pool if you can find a waiter, nobody will come up and ask if you need anything). Not much in walking distance; hotel provides a few free shuttles but a cab is cheap. Absolutely no indoor activities for when it rains during the dry season.

"Nice hotel In Chewang"
The hotel is nice, a bit far from the busy scene in chewang. The hotel seems a bit old but well maintened. Breakfest is ok, gym is old, beach is just ok. I had a standard room which was close enough to the pool and restaurant.

"Wonderful resort."
A beautiful tropical setting is home to this wonderful resort. The villas are very private, nicely appointed, and provide the perfect setting to rest and relax, unplugging from the outside world if you so desire. The best feature and assist the Nora has to offer is their staff. The Ko Samui people are genuinely helpful, gracious, lovely people. They welcome all visitors and appreciate what tourism provides to their economy.

"Great Villas, Restaurants, Pool and Spa"
You must get a villa to fully enjoy your stay. Originally I had a hotel room with a spa tub on the balcony but there was a lot of TV noise coming through the walls and the tub wasn't so inviting so for a rather small fee I upgraded to a Villa with my own pool and it was incredible. I cannot say enough about those accommodations. Their public pools are also amazing as are their restaurants with views. The beach is private and calm but they're mostly rocks. There's a small area in the water that one could lie down in the water and relax but don't expect to swim. Staff was super friendly and the spa was great. I had a massage 4 days straight. Make sure to ask about their special deals so you don't overpay. I would come back for sure but only for a villa.

"Not what we expected"
After spending a week at the outrigger on Ko Phi Phi we weren't prepared for Nora Bay. The facilities were ok but we has a view of trash. We asked to change our room to be closer to The pool Instead of the long walk up/down We were told they were full. The clientele was loud,obnoxious and trashy. We left early and went to the outrigger on Ko samui

"Amazing sunrise views and great evening music"
We stayed for four nights and can't imagine a better place to stay. Rates are very reasonable, our room had a balcony with a view of the gulf, the room was clean and well kept, and the food was good. There's a house band that plays a variety of music and they are just incredible. Staff is very friendly and helpful. It's close to the airport and chewang beach, but it's definitely not in the heart of a bustling area (take a cab if you need to go anywhere other than the pharmacy across the street). Their spa is right off the water, which is very pleasant when enjoying a midday Thai massage. I can't speak highly enough of this resort.

"Overpriced for an old hotel which needs a refurb"
This might be a 4 star resort on paper but in terms of the quality/cleanliness of the accommodation and the service this is no more than a 3 star and I feel it should not be advertised any higher. For the money there are much better 3 or even 5 star hotels in Thailand. The air conditioning is not fit for purpose. It does not work automatically and struggles to keep a cool temperature when it is hot at night. We had 4 visits from the engineers during our 10 day honeymoon stay. After the 3rd night they had managed to find a way to keep the room at a decent constant temp although it was still very noisy at night. Also you could not adjust it at all or it would get too hot or blow cold air on you all night while you tried to sleep. The hotel team did confirm they are currently looking to change all the air con in the hotel as they are aware of the problem. The beds are very hard and uncomfortable. They gave us a topper after the 2nd night and this made it easier to sleep but we still woke up every day with backache. This was a huge problem for us and we did not have one decent night’s sleep in the hotel. Even with these major problems (and the minor problems we could not fit into this review) we were not allowed to get a refund if we checked out early. The accommodation is very dated and needs a refurb. The general service also has a lot to be desired especially around cleanliness of the rooms and the hotel in general. For full details please check our review on TripAdvisor.

"Two nights at Nora in Samui"
Were on a vacation. The private beach of the hotel, and the ambience of the restaurant was superb. However, they lacked professionalism in more than one way. We had requested for an airport pick up, but had to wait for more than 15 minutes at the airport. This was when we paid 500 Baht for a 2 km ride for 4 of us. Also, at the check out, citing their system was down, they wanted to take permission to charge our credit card in case there were any unpaid dues, even though there were none. This was not expected from a hotel of this category.

"A trip to paradise"
This is by far the best hotel we have ever stayed in. We spent the first week of our holiday at a private villa and then stayed at Nora Beach for the final 4 nights of our holiday. It was amazing. We were greeted with juice and the staff dropped us and our luggage at our room. We stayed in a beach bungalow and it was out of this world. The room was very modern and absolutely beautiful. We were showed how to use everything and were greeted with fresh flowers all over. We did not want to leave. We sat on our deck by our pool during the day watching the sea, it was out of this world. We ate at the hotel for two evenings and the food was lovely! I had a massage in the spa and my therapist 'ice' was very professional and clearly knew what she was doing. All of the staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. I cannot wait to return and would highly recommend it to everyone!!!

"Good but a little disappointing"
Whilst Nora Beach is a good place to stay, it was somewhat disappointing! This is a resort that could be far better well kept and bathrooms generally require a bit of a make-over! Breakfasts were good! Beach appears to be man-made and quite coarse - the sand is not very smooth on the feet! Other than this, it is a relatively good place to stay for a few days!

"Good for a relaxing family holiday."
We had a nice stay at Nora. Staff was helpful , especially the Man at the reception could speak clear English. The lady picking the housekeeping calls was a bit blunt. But the lady Meow from housekeeping took very good care of us. The only drawback was the rooms were a bit far from the breakfast cafe and the pool. That walk up and down the slope was annoying. Beach was clean and very quite. No big waves though. Overall nice.

"Great location and facilities"
Great location away from the hustle and bustle of Chaweng beach and town but only 10 mins and a 50 Baht, Oversized Tuk Tuk, ride from it. The walk down to the pool for breakfast is a gem although quite steep, unless you are very incapacitated is well managed. the walk back the same. Beautifully landscaped gardens, a good pool but often busy. I slept down on the beach all day alone! The water is shallow and little current so idea for children and non swimmers. The staff are excellent. I found out later that Expedia price was 50 pc higher than one other site as I booked overseas on the spur of the minute so good to check all sites.

This is a nice hotel but isn't equipped for full occupation. There was not enough beds around pool with many guest sitting at dining tables. Also no separate area for guests without children to relax around a pool area. I have no problem if hotels wish to cater more for families, but if so please make sure it is advertised in this way

"Great location and villas are very impressive"
We had a room change on arrival and were given a villa for 2 nights right on the beach and then a more garden based villa for one night - each was spacious with a living room, huge bathroom and four poster bed in the bedroom- very attractively designed and fantastic value for money. Its a big location, so all rooms get nice views, and buggy carts pick you up within 5-10 minutes if you find the walks too much,The breakfasts were very varied and plentiful with a lot of choice. I would recommned the hotel as a great balance just out of town, not far from teh airport and right on a long clean beach. The pool is also large and the staff very friendly and helpful.

Front desk staff are badly trained not just in language but also understanding the needs of the traveler. If you want to rent a scooter, why can only one person do this and that person is on an hour break? Why did we have to get our sheets changed the 1st night after finding crusty things on the inner bed sheet? Location is good spot between Chaweng and Bo Phut. The rooms have no view at all because of overgrown trees. Pool is nice and clean. Beach is quiet and clean.

"More than a few issues..."
Would not recommend. Service overall was decent however the pool/towel attendants were terrible - even had an instance where the towel attendant scowled at us for asking for towels during a brief period of rain! I had to insist that we really wanted them.. On another day they insisted on taking away our towels 45min prior to the pool closing so that they would have less work upon closing... leaving us to go back to our room soaking wet and cold. Rooms were dated, sheets dirty. Front desk staff is complacent with the rip-off taxi cab drivers and does not attempt to help you secure a price that is extortionate. Remember - in Thailand the cabbies will invariably try to charge ~400% of a reasonable price to tourists, so ensure that you bargain with them (not always a pleasant activity) Location is far from the main Chaweng beach, would take about 30min+ to get to the main part of the beach from here. Beach in front of the resort isnt that bad though. On the plus side: pool was nice and the breakfast was decent (although lots of bugs / ants! -including in and around the buffet dishes)

My family of 3 were very happy with the Nora Beach Resort. Kid friendly, safe, tropical resort. Easy to get to, no airport noise, no hawkers, beach clean and warm, pool warm. You could walk to Cheweng but too hot and a bit far -which is good - away from the noise and crowds. There are lots of resorts to choose here in Koh Samui but we are very happy with Nora Beach Resort. Buffet breakfast has a good choice for everyone. Restaurant meals good value and variety.

"Nora the Explorer!!!"
Stayed at the Nora for 12 nights, and from the get go the stay looked like it was going to be a good one. The staff were able to check us in 2 hrs earlier. The rooms were clean and more than adequate to spend time in - but the point of the holiay was to see Samui, so hanging in the room other than sleeping wasn't really required by the both of us. The pool in particular was clean and well maintained, which made it awesome to spend majority of the time in Samui there. The buffet breakfast offered a wide range of options, all generally fresh and tasted good. The staff were all very friendly and accomodating, and that added to our experience. The only blight on the stay was housekeeping not beng consistant in their daily making up of the room. At times we'd have all towels replaced, but other times we'd be short on towels and amenaties. We were asked if we took a pair of black slippers when we checked out which made us laugh given there was only one pair of pink slippers when we checked in. But that was only minor in the scheme of things...The resort was quite pleasant to stay at and we'd highly recommend it to anyone going to Koh Samui. Johnny & Margaret!!!
