Nora Beach Resort & Spa
Show reviews that mention
1) Upgraded from a deluxe to a villa suite. 2) F&B staff were excellent attending to our needs especially the pool staff. 3) Location is superb but it depends on individual. Nora Beach is about 10 mins away from the ChaWeng centre but we didn't mind as we hired a scooter. 4) Breakfast selection was good, catering to both Asian and Western guests' comforts.
Beautiful resort, very helpful staff, amazing bungalows”
The resort is beautiful and staff are very friendly and helpful. We stayed at Nora for our initial leg of our trip for 4 nights and it was a lovely relaxing start to our holiday which allowed our bodies to adjust to time difference. The resort isn't in the town but not far on tuk tuks and resort do provide complimentary shuttle a few times during day and in the evening for 100baht. I would have loved evening entertainment which is not available me in the resort however would definately recommend staying here it's beautiful
We enjoyed our stay at Nora Beach resort. It was the nice relaxing break we needed. Nothing better than relaxing by the pool and looking at the ocean views. The resort is a bit of a way from Chaweng beach, but the resort offers free shuttle service which was very handy. The villa had everything we needed for our short stay, everything was well maintained and tidy.
Not satisfied ”
The only positive thing in this resorts is the pool , because is very private. Apart from that I am very disappointed. Wouldn’t give 4 star. Pillows and mattress a vary hard and not comfortable. Every morning I have wake up with neck and back pain. The breakfast is very basic , the same varieties of salad every morning, eggs, and sometimes some daily changes with Asian dishes. After few night there you feel that the breakfast is really boring. When you enter the resort during the day or night time they don’t even ask you for the room number so seems like this resort is not secure at all and everyone can access it from the pool side and reception side. I think for the price what I have paid you can find better resorts at Koh Samui.
Another resort with poor management engagement”
This resort could be so much more. Poor staff service except for a fanatic bar man. Most of the staff need training on customer service. Very little management / owner engagement on the floor. Good hotels you can normally see them at breakfast or dinner time etc Very loud pool filter in pool villa also killed the tranquility
Pure relaxation ”
This was a lovely relaxing end to our travels. We wanted to simply rest and re-energise after several weeks touring Europe, and Nora was perfect for that! Our beachfront villa was amazing with our own pool, large living space and sandy beach right out the front. The pool bar was also great and they had a terrific selection of food and drinks which were all delicious and reasonably priced. Despite being only 5-10min drive from the airport, we didn’t hear 1 plane so it was super relaxing. Highly recommended!
Our room was doubled booked!”
We booked and paid for our beachfront pool villa months ago and was extremely disappointed to find out on arrival that our room was not available! We choose this resort as we had a wedding next door and other family were staying as well. The manager arranged another room until ours was available in 2 days and gave us a refund. The resort and staff are lovely and when we eventually made it to the beachfront pool villa we loved it! Not sure who to blame for the double booked issue????
Thai breakfast was unpleasant. Egg station was good. The pool was too shallow and too warm. Beach was rocky and not appropriate to swim in. The so called 'free shuttle service' was at odd times and too far in between. The room smelled after a downpour and the solution was for staff to spray this air freshener in the room which was not very pleasant. The room was cleaned well but it was difficult to communicate with reception staff. I would not go back to this resort.
It’s a good hotel ”
everything it’s ok except they said at the booking that no children is allowed at the Hotel and let me tell you that it’s NOT true, there are children everywhere when I ask at the hotel what’s going on with the kids they said sorry only a few so,,. Nora beach is a Non Children allowed or just a few children???????? but please don’t lye to Agoda or customers ...thanks
Great place to relax”
Nice place, value for money
Just to start, the pool was fabulous. Right on the beach and oh so inviting, large, beautiful, great pool bar. The grounds are stunning. At first we were a little worried about how friendly the atmosphere might be as we rarely stay in this type of "resort" . We were happily surprised at how warm the staff was and how much fun the place was. Met lots of interesting people. It rained a bit every day but we still had a great time.
Great hotel in a great location on the beach ”
The hotel is located on the beach and has all the amenities you would want. The breakfast buffet was great, staff are nice, grounds are clean and hotel is quiet at night . It was only a short walk down the road or beach to many beachfront restaurants.
We had a villa with a private pool. Great place to relax. Breakfast was good with lots of choice and the restaurant is right on the beach. We had a cooking lesson which was great fun. There isn’t much within walking distance but there are plenty of hotel transfers to the town and easy enough to get a taxi back. Would love to return again some day.
Nice beach resort”
We stayed in the beach front pool villa. Nice view, nice and spacious room, clean and tidy. Staff are nice. Since i had to arrange birthday surprise for my partner, the hotel staff were happy to assist and offer free birthday cake. Only thing i dont like is that there are many flying insects in the bathroom (given the room are basically clean and tidy, i can be more tolerance on this) and the breakfast is just so so. But, the al la carte menu in the restaurant is good. The cooking class is fun to try. is very nice and you can see sun rise in the morning.
great location ”
I stayed in a beach front villa for 5 nights , very spacious villa with private swimming pool , 10 metre from the front door to the beach , very quiet location perfect for relaxing and still only 5 minutes taxi to the town centre . good staff and great breakfast , I will return
The hotel itself is pretty nice and has nice facilities. They have a kayak you can rent for free and the beach is not the best but pretty okay. They also provide rides at certain times thoughout the day which was convenient.
Beachfront, relatively large pool”
Has everything you need: big pool with swim up bar, wifi, decent food. This is a midrange hotel on the north end of Chaweng beach so it's not really part of the party/busy scene, which is suitable to most. Downside is not being able to walk the little shops on the main road and the hotel shuttle is pretty infrequent. But for us, we were there for just a couple days with no real intention of doing any shopping or bar hopping so it suited just fine.
Nice Hotel by the Beach”
Very nice hotel situated in well maintained tropical grounds by the beach. Stayed in a villa with small private pool and beach front view. Better quality of beach front compared to other hotels in the area. Around 15 minutes walk to the centre of Chaweng town, but there is a Hotel shuttle service, tuk tuks and taxis to get there. Cheapest way to get around the Island is to hire a scooter. Only 10 minutes drive from the airport and Baht 500 for a hotel van to take our party of 6 there. Good selection for breakfast in a restaurant area with sea and pool view. Pool was a bit crowded and Wifi unstable in the room, but apart from that, all good during our stay at Nora Beach Hotel.
Good Service n Good Breakfast”
It was a very good stay at here. Their service are very good. They will explain to you for your enquiry. Feel free to ask them anything that you wanna know, they will insist you especially the one who name Lance. His service is very good. Give him thumb up! Beside that the breakfast is very delicious. There are variety of choices. So no worry that you will everyday eating the same thing. Then the beach is just in front of the swimming pool. Very convenient. And the swimming pool is clean and they also giving towel for you. Just one thing that I dislike, their shower head is very dirty. However, just give them a call and they will come and clean it up like what I do. Lastly, here don't have elevator , so if you're not convenient with it, think twice. Because you need to walk to the swimming pool, restaurant, and reception especially if you're staying in second floor like me. Is kind tired when you left something in the room and have to climb up again. If you're okay with this 2, go for it. They also providing shuttle bus to send you to the Chaweng town but I didn't use it. As the time only have 3 choice, I couldn't make it with the time. For other time, they will charge you 50 bath per person. Ohya, they give you a welcome drink once you arrived and their wifi is GREAT! You can connect as long you're around in the hotel area. Even the beach, you also can connect. Best thing to ppl who need internet all the time. Overall, is very good.
So good we had to go back”
My Girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights when we first arrived in Thailand and we did not want to leave. So much so that after 4 weeks travelling around South East Asia we decided to cut a couple of days off north Vietnam so we could get back to Nora for 3 more nights of relaxation before ending our holiday. Really great hotel!
