Welcome to Nora Buri Resort & SpaNestled comfortably in the Gulf of Thailand sits the elegant gem of Koh Samui, a small tropical paradise which offers a genuine aura of relaxation. A short flight from Bangkok and you land in the midst of white sand, teal water, vibrant coral reefs and a wealth of coconut trees, all complimented by a slow and simple life. Koh Samui represents the best of Thai island culture, with its biggest challenge being to find a resort that will allow you to make the most of its vistas. But this search is made easy by the recently opened Nora Buri Resort & Spa, with an outlook that will captivate our attention, dilute your problems and offer a true escape from an overzealous world. Located just 3 minutes from the International Airport, Nora Buri is easily accessible. It’s also modern, yet warm and inviting. From the outset you can see it has been designed with integration into the surrounding landscape in mind. It incorporates the greenery, the hilly terrain and a beautiful white sandy beach with ease. Its 144 rooms are configured to ensure diversity, making Nora Buri accessible to a range of budgets. From the simple Garden and Seaview rooms, right up to a masterful Pool Villa Beachfront Seaview, no matter what the occasion, there is a solution. The relaxed feel that engulfs the resort transfers to each of these rooms, with spacious warm tones being enhanced by a cool sea breeze flowing through. The modern comforts are also there, with 32” LCD TV, high speed internet and DVD players at the ready should you need them.Nora Buri personifies both the natural beauty of Koh Samui and the relaxed demeanor of its people. One look at the view experienced at countless vantage points here and your worries are no more. The resort is well conceived, well designed and well executed. It’s a truly magical place from which to explore this delectable gem of an island.•Deluxe Hillside Room 48 rooms•Deluxe Hillside Seaview Room 48 rooms•Pool Villa Hillside Seaview 28 rooms•Pool Villa Beachside 12 rooms•Pool Villa Beachside Seaview 4 rooms•Pool Villa Beachfront Seaview 4 rooms

Very good resort for relaxing and enjoying beautiful pools and views. Food is ok. There is no beach, just rocks and a lot of garbage and plastic bottles on the shores. As often with Thailand and its beautiful islands, the sea is beautiful but.. AWFULLY DIRTY AND DISGUSTING!

Dear olivierm439, "Great resort with pools and views" Greetings from Nora Buri Resort and Spa! On behalf of the entire team, we are as happy as you are that our property and hospitality have met your expectations and we can’t wait for your return visit so you can have another relaxing stay by the beachside pool and enjoy the views. Unfortunately, just one week before you arrived, there was a tropical storm Pubak that caused a lot of damage to the Gulf of Thailand coast and affected a lot of beachfront resorts in Samui. The island locals have been working together to clean up after this disaster and we have a local Trash Hero community in Samui now that have been working hard to do beach cleanups every week. We also wish this will improve and support those who are trying to make a difference. Thank you again for your feedback. Yours Truly, Mr.Lloyd

Most of the beaches are rocky, the beach near this hotel is fine but not the best. I recommend you to visit Bang Po beach as there are less people and more beautiful scenery. Apart from Chaweng Beach, there are also activities around Bophut beach
