“Outstanding!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Me and my wife stayed at the Nora Buri Resort for 5 days. We couldn't have picked a better place in Thailand. As soon as we stepped up to the open lounge area, we have been well taken care of by hotel attendants. Very friendly staff. Our room was in a bungalow placed almost at the top of the hill. Golf buggies were always there to give us a ride up to the bungalow. We got the room with a view of the sea as requested, although I was a bit disappointed when I saw that the view was partially obscured by the bungalow in from of us. But never the less, the whole setup was amazing. Excellent breakfast. The beach in front is not the best but clean.

Room Tip: You would spend too much time coming up and down if have a room up in the hills. Better get somethin...

We explored the island of Koh Samui looking for a suitable venue for our Wedding in 2013. We were blown away by the service presented to us by Michelle and the rest of the staff at Nora which all the other 5 star resorts on the island were lacking.
We stayed at the resort also to get a feel for the grounds. The whole experience was exceptional with no negative issues whatsoever. Rooms were top notch, breakfast was top notch, and even dinner at "The Barge" was top notch!
The photos speak for themselves. You wont be disappointed.

Room Tip: You get what you pay for. More $ gets you the better view.

A good setup and well managed. Good value with excellent facilities. No obvious major faults if you're looking for any.
Transport provided by resort is lacking in frequency. Walking to Chaweng is a little far to endure for some but the narrow roads makes it downright dangerous to do so, especially at night.
There are two pools, one on the upper terrace and the other by the beach. They're both very nice. The beach is sandy but swimming in the the sea can be tricky when negotiating the rocks.
The service is on par with any 5 Star establishments in Koh Samui.

We stayed for 3 days in Nora Buri Resort & Spa on our honeymoon. We just loved the place. we had booked a beach view private pool room. It was a little expensive but the place is awesome...we just loved it. The service is extremely good.it is quite close to the main chewang beach. we would definetely like to go there again. We had the most memorable times there. Thanks to Nora buri Resort. I would really recommend this place. It quite and the perfect place to be on your honeymoon. There have different types of rooms. If you think the beach view private pool is expensive then try the hill side villas.

Room Tip: Private pool rooms are the best

My husband and I really think this is the best hotel we've ever been to. We travel a lot and stayed in so many hotels as part of our job (and of course on holidays). Mind you, we've been all over the world! The service that this hotel gives is beyond expectations. They keep surprises the last minute which definitely makes your day! My husband and I got married here and all the stress that we had prior to the big day was eased by the most efficient wedding planner in the world--Michelle! =D There is also this Front Office staff, named Anne who is very warm and accommodating (not to mention funny). The wedding team really made everything exactly how we wanted our wedding to be! To say, "These people are Amazing!" is an understatement. We could not thank them enough for what they did. In addition,the best part we love about this hotel are the breathtaking views if you are staying on the hillside and the over-the-top breakfast! I also had the chance to stay at one of the beachfront villas for my changing room during the wedding day and I must say I was blown away! When we went to Rio, Brazil we thought that breakfast was the best--we were WRONG! We found the best in this hotel! The spread includes Western and Asian cuisines. There's vegetarian section for those who fancy being healthy and those who just don't eat meat. Not only that, their breakfast selection changes everyday so we never got bored of it. The spa rooms are WOW! We wanted to stay there the whole day! It's very quiet, very close to nature, overlooking the sea with private jacuzzi and steam room. Housekeeping also kept surprising us with all these towel creations from kissing swans to cute elephants everyday. The buggy that brings us to and from the rooms were very prompt. Our overall experience were a total BLISS--thanks to the warm hospitality and service this hotel provides! =D

My partner and i chose Nora Buri as the Resort we would be married at. From the moment we arrived at the resort we were treated above and beyond anything we could have expected. The room was so beautiful, the staff and all of the hotels amenities were amazing. The amazing team that organised our wedding was led by Michelle, they made the day as easy as could possibly be for us but at the same time made an unforgettable ceremony that we could not thank them enough for. Before arriving in Koh Samui we liaised with Michelle via email, it was a very easy process and this allowed me to pick flowers, cake etc before arriving. There was no detail overlooked to make our wedding day as picture perfect as possible and this was all thanks to the team at Nura Buri, all as they made us feel part of their family.,

Best resort ive ever stayed at. Had a beach side pool villa which was beautiful. Amazing view. Two pools are both great, hillside and beach side. Thurs night they have a free Thai night with free cocktails and thai snacks. The barge restaurant was awesome, had a seafood platter which was definitely worth the price. Only downside was location. Not close to anything (walking distance), but hotel has free shuttle into Chaweng every hr which was good. Would stay again!
