Very nice hotel . Sea view villas are awesome. We loved the place. Staff are so friendly and well trained. You need to take a taxi from and to the resort . The place is bit expensive compared to other resorts in samui

a group of 7 of us has recently booked through the nora buri reservation website and I can't believe what an awful experience it has been. Emails take days to be answered, queries are not answered at all. I booked at a certain cost and was charged way more, when I asked for a cost breakdown to see how this... More

Our first trip to Thailand so we wanted to stay in a great hotel but the Nora Buri didn't meet our expectations. It's located on a hill which made it impossible just to wander around the resort as although you could walk down the many steps it was a hard climb to go back up. Having to rely on golf... More

We arrived for our Honemoon in our final week of travelling Thailand on September 21st - We booked the hillside villa - What an amazing week! The villa was amazing, the views were stunning. We treated ourselves, and it was worth every penny. Our private pool/jacuzzi was perfect, the room was very tastefully decorated and we were made to feel... More

We cancelled our stay here early because we got too bored, and going to town or to the beach was incredibly inconvenient due to the poor location/transport. Several points speak against Nora Buri, and I would not reccommend anyone to go there: (1) The resort is just not good enough to spend lots of time there: while it has most... More

We had a beach front pool villa which was fully worth it. Incredible view from bed over plunge pool and out to sea. Complete privacy but only a short walk to main pool, restaurant and bar. Staff friendly and helpful.

タオ島からの帰りで、朝9:30のサムイ島発フライトのためにサムイ島に2泊することになり、空港から近いこのホテルを選びました。タクシー代はシートランの港からも300BTHほど、空港までも300BTHほどと、各10分の距離にあるので助かりました。 ただ、他の方のレビューにもあるようにチャウエンタウンの中心地までは250BTHかかり、周囲に歩いて行ける美味しいレストランなどもないので、滞在中のバイクのレンタルは必須です。(フロントの方にも言われました)。市街地までの無料シャトルもありますが、予約制でかつMAX10人なので、不便で一度も使えませんでした。 ホテルの雰囲気は、ザ・リゾートな感じで、高級感がありました。オーシャンビューの部屋のダブルベッドでしたが、ツインのベッドをくっつけた部屋なので、とても広々としていました。何よりも湯船と部屋の間の窓を開放すると、バスルームからオーシャンビューが見える作りはとてもオシャレで気に入りました。とてもシンプルで清潔で、テラスもそれなりにスペースが広く快適に過ごすことができました。それと、金庫が大きめで13インチのMacbookが入ったのにはビックリでした。 ただ残念なのは、海で泳ぐのを楽しみにしていたのですが、ガラスや大きめの砂のある砂浜で裸足で歩くのは痛く、海の中も藻が茂っていて浸かるのを躊躇しました・・・だから海で泳いでいる人はいなかったのですね。リサーチ不足でした。 それと、「帰りのフライトに焦らず乗れるようしたい」とフロントの方にお願いし、1時間前にホテルを出発できるはずだったのですが、(ホテル専属の)タクシーが謎の大遅刻し、空港にギリギリに到着・・・まさかのfinal announcementで呼ばれてしまう事態となりました。そもそももっと自分たちが早く出発すればよかっただけなのですが、実は前日にも別のカスタマーが「僕のタクシーがこないじゃないか!これじゃフライトに乗り遅れる!」と怒っていたのを目撃していたので、よくあるのかな、と思いました。ご注意くださいませ。 全体的には全く文句ないステイでした。海辺で泳げないことがわかったので、次はヴィラに滞在したいです! We stayed in a room with ocean view for 2nights.The room was very spacious, simple,clean and quiet, so we had a great time relaxing. It was nice that they had a safe that's big enough to keep my macbook pro. Two things were a little disappointing in spite of the comfy stay, 1)... More
