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.
