Great hotel overall with friendly staff”
Stayed 3Nights at Hillside pool villa. Great value for money and very good views from hillside pool villa. The goods: - For the price you get fantastic views from hillside pool villa - The staff ferry you by buggies everywhere you go - very good variety for breakfast - nice friendly staff - room is very good size and pool inside the rooms are very clean, also hotel is in a quiet area so it is not noisy - airport is 5 min away by taxi, chaweng beach is 10 min away - TV has all the good channels you can think of improvement points: - Wifi: not the greatest wifi that requires multiple sign ins during the stay - Aircon: aircon only activates when you have keycard in the slot, and you only have one keycard, so every time you return to hotel your room is 30oC and it takes 10+min to cool the big room. Also when you open the sliding door to the pool the aircon auto shuts off so a bit inconvenient. Our aircon also was dripping water at near end of the stay so was unable to use.

One of the better hotels I’ve been to in recent memory!”
One of the better hotels I’ve been to in recent memory! Outside the Busy city but not far from both Chawaing and the Fishermen Village. Most impressed with the view, pools and good mixture of guests. Great helpful staff specially Jennifer (? I may have forgotten her name) and Ton.
Dear Zvi, Greetings from Nora Buri Resort and Spa! "One of the better hotels I've been to in recent memory!" Thank you for staying with us and for your kind review and rating. We are happy to read that our hardworking staff was helpful and accommodating.

We are glad you enjoyed the breathtaking views our villas and pools have to offer as well. We can't wait for you to come back and relax with us in tropical paradise! Yours Truly, Ms. Angel Guest Relations Manager
The best stay we had at Koh Samui! It was really expensive but totally worth it! ”
We booked the Hillside beach view room with private pool. The room was incredible, clean and their service was really amazing. Additional special amenities provided was mosquito repellent for the room, and beach bag to bring out to the pool/beach, which I thought was very useful for our stay there. Their customer service was commendable too. Free shuttle bus service to Chaweng beach was provided at multiple timings of the day. Breakfast was amazing with great varieties. Must try the food at Rice Barge & Terrace restaurant, serving authentic and delicious Thai cuisine. Overall deserving the 5 star rating!

Loved every minute of our stay!!! ”
Stayed in our beachfront pool villa room 601 from the 28th - 31st January for our honeymoon. Right from the start to the end, NoraBuri's staffs treated us impeccably well! Me and my wife both loved every minute staying here. We had plans to go around for Safari day trip and Angthong Marine Park but ended up skipping both as our room were super comfortable, Im not sure why is there even a bad review of this place. Id highly recommend any one to stay here. we would be definitely back here to spend our anniversary next. Thank you for the wonderful hospitality NoraBuri Resort and Spa. Please keep up the great job!

Must Choose Room with Pool Villa ”
We stayed three nights in the hillside room with pool villa; high hill but with club car sent you directly from lobby to the room. Little disappointed as the hotel is in renovation and not much choice about the restaurant. We tried their seafood set and it's very tasty and not pricey with outside restaurants.
Dear Yi, Greetings from Nora Buri Resort and Spa! "Must Choose Room with Pool Villa" Thank you very much for choosing one of our hillside pool villas and for taking a moment to leave us a review, as well as your feedback of your recent stay with us.

It was a pleasure to welcome you as a guest at the Nora Buri Resort and Spa, and we would be very happy to see you again. Yours truly, Ms. Angel
Truly amazing stay. !! ”
We stayed at the Nora Buri Resort for 14 beautiful nights. On first impression, we thought the hotel looked beautiful. The lobby was beautifullly decorated, with friendly smiling faces greeting us. We arrived quite late at night and were quickly greeted with a welcome drink (yummy!!) and a refreshing towel. We were quickly booked into our room and taken to our room via the buggy service. Walking into our room we felt great, it was just as pictured and was truly beautiful. I loved all of the small touches that the hotel had so eloquently thought of, a beach bag with fresh beach towels, slippers for us both, flip flops, complimentary free and even a sweet decoration on our bed and cake to celebrate our anniversary. The room was clean, spacious and bright, it truly was beautiful during the day when you can see the wonderful view. All of the facilities around the hotel were great, everything was so clean and well looked after. Food was well priced and tasted great.

Thank you very much that you have spent 14 nights for your anniversary with us and i would be very happy to welcome you back to us on Koh Samui. Yours truly, Ms. Angel L.
The hotel is good, but the main negative point is the beach which is very small and not looked after (at least when we were there). The infinity pool, however, is very nice. Breakfast was not up to the standards, could do with more fruit variety and quality improvement. Rooms are very spacious and clean, could do with a face lift as the hotel is older.
Dear Ana, Greetings from Nora Buri Resort & Spa! Thank you for taking the time to rate us and describe your experience with us here on Agoda.

Great relaxing holiday resort. ”
The resort has everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. It’s far enough away from the main streets of Koh Samui to be nice and quiet. There are no convenience stores close by to buy snacks and drinks but a taxi or the resorts shuttle are readily available if needed. Staff were very good and friendly.
Dear Mark, Greetings from Nora Buri Resort & Spa! Thank you very much for taking the time to rate us and describe your experience with us here on Agoda.

Part of resort under construction. ”
Our Sea view villa, had a a view of the roof of the villa in front of it. Resort is on the side of the mountain, no stairs just a ramp up to your room. So if you want to hike up a mountain every time you want to come/go from your room, then this is the place for you. Our villa was 800 feet above the lobby. Koh samui. has turned into one big construction zone, save time and go to Krabi instead.
Dear Michael, Greetings from Nora Buri Resort & Spa! Thank you for taking the time to review and share your experience here on Agoda. The Nora Buri Resort & Spa is located along the curving north end of Chaweng beach on the mountain, just few minutes away from the Chaweng’s buzzing shopping, dining and nightlife scene. Not only we do offer our guests a free shuttle service to Chaweng, we also have free buggys that take you all over the resort, dial 2 on your phone and they'll send a buggy to pick you up. We thank you for choosing our resort and send you sunny greetings from Koh Samui. Yours truly, Mr. Lloyd
Great place to relax. Good rooms. Great breakfast, with various options, sweet and savory, fruits and fresh juices. A little far from the "city", but 50tbh pp on tuk tuk worked just fine. Only downside was food and drinks were extremely overpriced especially at the pool bar. Overall it was a good stay.
Dear Enrico, Greetings from Nora Buri Resort & Spa! Thank you very much for taking the time to review and share your experience here on Agoda. It is nice to read that overall you had a good stay with us. White sand, teal water, vibrant coral reefs and a wealth of coconut trees, all complimented by a slow and simple life, what more do you need to escape from everyday life? We are happy that you were satisfied with the selection of our Eat-All-you-can Buffet Breakfast starting the day in our Manora Restaurant while enjoying the scenic view of the beach. Due to our quiet location, away from mass tourism, we offer our guests a free shuttle service to Chaweng. We thank you for your visit and hope to see you again soon. Yours truly, Mr. Lloyd
Overall, it is a nice resort. Staff are polite and friendly. We stayed 4 nights in Seaview Villa with Pool. Beautiful view from the room. However, the management should not put guest next to the restaurant which was under renovation. Constant knocking noice was frustrating. It spoilt our holiday. The dust from the renovation works was all over the pool and the sunbed. WiFi was not strong in the room and every time need to re log in. No restaurant nearby, thus need to take transport to travel out for meal every time.
Dear Mei, Greetings from the Nora Buri Resort & Spa! Thank you for choosing the Nora Buri Resort & Spa for 4 nights and thank you also for taking the time for a review. We are glad that you liked our hotel. The restaurants inside the Nora Buri Resort & Spa has a huge menu of seafood, Western cuisine and authentic Thai cuisine to suit any culinary fantasy. If you don't want to go out far to eat you can order room service from 06:30 – 23:00 hrs. We apologize for any inconvenience in connection with the renovation in any form. We hope to welcome you once again. Your truly, Mr. Lloyd
Amazing hotel in a exclusive location.”
The location is fantastic if you want a peaceful holiday. Chaweng busy district is only 7mins drives from the hotel if you want to shop or party! The hotel is incredible and I was fortunate enough to be upgraded to a Seaview Pool Villa which was absolutely remarkable. The food at The Barge was delicious and has great menu selection. Staff are friendly and efficient. Definitely recommend this place and happy to stay here again when I come back to visit the beautiful island of Koh Samui
Dear Jose, Greetings from Nora Buri Resort and Spa! “Amazing hotel in a exclusive location" Thank you for sharing such a warm review. It is a pleasure to learn that you had such a relaxing and 'peaceful’ time here with us and, we were able to surpass your expectations. Our beautiful, contemporary rooms, all with ocean views are each special in their own unique way, and we are glad to learn of how much you enjoyed yours. It is also great to read that you thoroughly enjoyed the exotic flavors from our restaurant. We find that The Barge, our Seafood and Western Cuisine restaurant, is often a highlight for our guests and the food is certainly made with love and passion by our chefs! I personally look forward to welcoming you back again to this Personal Paradise as a regular guest of Nora Buri Resort and Spa and please feel free to contact me directly should you require any further assistance. Yours truly, Ms. Angel Guests Relations Manager
Pros: We booked a beachside villa which had a wonderful view and was spacious and came with bathtub and seperate shower as well as an outdoor rainfall shower. The Breakfast choices were very good and catered for global guests, the on site restaurants are also very good. Staff are helpful and polite as you would expect from Thai hospitality. Cons: Mosquitoes! This place is beautiful with its rainforest feel with lots of greenery and trees, but that also becomes a home for bugs and such like. We used lots of patches and lotions but still got bitten multiple times. The internet kept dropping in and out on our first night but they did come and provide a new router for the room on our 2nd day. Another issue was the outdoor bell kept ringing by itself which became a nuisance when trying to put the kids to bed and ourselves. We informed the staff and they did try to fix the issue but it was on and off. By the third day it was fixed but that was still super annoying.
Stayed 4 nights in hilltop sea view villa over the new years. Quite & private area, good for rewinding and relaxing. Very lush green surrounding around the area. Hotel beach is not very suitable for swimming because there is alot of sharps corals & rocks near the bay. My husband was injured while trying to swim. Not walkable to chaweng city centre. Sometimes quite difficult to call for buggy. But overall good stay.
Very clean and Professional!”
My boyfriend and I really enjoyed staying at Nora Buri Resort and Spa! We stayed in the beachside villa which was amazing! They have a shuttle service on the resort, as well as a shuttle that takes you into chaweng beach! The resort spa was the best massage so far in Thailand, a little more expensive but worth the money. The restaurants were great, highly recommend the barge restaurant!
This hotel is a great hotel. Divided by the road this place has a garden and ocean section. Two massive pools and fitness center which are book great. This hotel is about 5-10 min out from the main area of Chaweng so you need a taxi or the hotel shuttle service to get into town. This hotel is massive and has a lot of stairs and steep internal pathways which must be taken to get to and from the rooms or facilities. Golf carts can get you around which can help

2 Night Perfect Pre Holiday Holiday. ”
Amazing 2 night stay. Hillside Villa With Private Pool. Would not hesitate to return. Incredibly beautiful. Hill is steep but if you don’t want to walk, plenty of golf buggies. Can’t wait to return. Food was delicious, staff delightful and views overwhelming.

We really love our room. Amazing.”
We think the villa room is our love in the mind. Although we could not see all sea view. But the view with tree and sea is enough because of the room’s price. The hotel is very steep, so need “bagi” to pick up and drop off. Only one times we wait a little long, others time also fast. All staff always have smile to every customer and kindly. Although the resort is not very new, I love the ambience because our room. The disadvantage is the beach not easily for working. Others I all feel good. Especially, the staff give the surprise to us for our first wedding anniversary. It’s so sweet. I think the resort is worth than more others.
Dear Shu, Greetings from Nora Buri Resort and Spa! "We really love our room. Amazing."
