Nora Buri Resort & Spa
Ranked #16 of 103 Hotels in Chaweng
Reviewed 21 February 2012

Stayed 20 nights is a seaview villa. Cannot fault anything. An excellent property in a convenient location, just the right size with all the 5 star facilities to satisfy our needs. First we were picked up from the airport and reached Nora Buri Resort and Spa in minutes. Was surprised how close it is yet never heard any jets overhead. We arrived early and our room was not quite ready so Front Office Manager Khun Josie took us into the cocktail lounge and treated us to a 'smoothie'. She was there to help us for the whole stay, and a great asset to the hotel. After our drink was finished we were driven by buggy to our villa which had incredible views of the sea. Gorgeous villa with a rain shower garden, giant spa bath and inside shower a t the back and a large bedroom/living fronting a large infinity pool. Everything is new and works well. Unlike many of the properties I have stayed in Thailand the room and whole property is built solid and everything WORKS. We could sit beside the pool and have a cool breeze in the sun day after day. The breakfast had everything with outstanding service from Khun Taa and Nico. Venice the Food and Bev assistant manager talked to us every morning, always willing to give her time and advice. The gym is the best one I have seen in a hotel on the island with free weights and cardio, lots of space. There are 2 main pools, upper and lower. There is a road between the beach and hill with a tunnel going under the road. They have a free shuttle to Chaweng and free cocktails for guests to meet the management weekly. The General Manager is in a league of his own, treating us like family. Its evident that he takes care of the hotel workers in every department. The spa is outstanding too, really relaxed!
The housekeeping is great. Never seen anything like that. The time our housekeeper Khun Pui spent mopping, sweeping and cleaning her heart out was something to witness.
I recommend Nora Buri Resort and Spa completely.

Room Tip: There are villas near the beach and also on the hillside. If you are up high then you need to catch...

We had a wedding at Nora Buri over Jan 2012. The place was amazing the staff were so friendly and helpful. They loved our 9 yr old always talking to him at breakfast and at the pool.

We had a sea view room the walk up the hill was rather tough but the view was amazing. The rooms very clean and spacious.

The food was amazing, all you can imagine of a buffet.

The ocean was a bit rocky at the edge but apart from that safe and clean.

The resort is away from the business-ness of Chewang, but close enough to visit shops and markets.

The two pools are amazing too :)

Room Tip: If you are not fit pick a room that is close to the pools, otherwise its a steep walk up a hill.

We stayed at Nora Buri for the first week of our honeymoon in January.

We arrived exhausted after almost 24 hours of travelling and were so warmly welcomed, we almost forgot about how tired we were.

We stayed in a hillside pool villa which was absolutely amazing and we'd highly recommend this option to anyone staying there. The walk up the hill from reception is pretty steep but it's necessary to work off all the delicious Thai food you'll be eating! There is the option of getting one of the provided golf carts up to your room each time, but the walk isn't too bad.

Breakfast included virtually everything you could possibly think of and was all cooked beautifully. We were hesitant about some foods for fear of getting sick, but in the end we ate everything and didn't get sick once.

As far as location is concerned, it's nice and close to the airport without actually being able to hear the planes arrive and depart; it's close enough to Chaweng to be able to easily access the shops and happenings of the island, and at the same time far enough away to be able to avoid the party scene.

The staff are incredibly helpful and lovely, the views are spectacular, and everything is maintained and kept to an impeccable level.

We had done a considerable amount of research trying to find the perfect place to stay in Koh Samui and we were blown away by the accommodations and service at Nora Buri. We would not only highly recommend others stay here, but would stay here time and time again given the opportunity!!
