After researching this site endlessly to decide which of the many hotels to stay in Koh Samui for our honeymoon in December, I thought I should contribute our experience at the Nora.
The setting of the Nora is excellent, huge landscaped gardens, the pool is practically on the beach, the swim up bar was awesome ( coconut dream cocktails $1.50 in happy hour) and the rooms were large and spacious, with lots of wood features giving ita real thai feel. We stayed in superior room and this was great for us, with a large balcony and couch that you could relax on. There was always fresh water and our room was made up every day to pristine condition.
The service was fantastic, everyone is always smiling, I dont think we ever had anyone not smile and greet us! They just cant do enough for you.
The restaurant was beautiful, right on the beach. Thai food was awesome and so cheap, western food was good also. The breakfast buffet was huge and you could have anything from making your own fresh juice to fried rice.
The location was good and bad because you felt so peaceful being away from chaweng and on your own stretch of private beach but at the same time we were going into town most days and the free shuttle wasnt at very convenient times so you were getting taxis all the time at about $12 a day. But if you didnt want to go to chaweng much, then this wouldnt matter.
We hired a jeep and drove around and went to Bo Phut for dinner this was magic had the best thai food ever at the Happy Elephant and cocktails in fishermans village right on the beach very romantic.
We had the best honeymoon ever and after being in bangkok for 3 days koh samui was magic. We loved the Nora and wouldnt hesitate to recommend it. Its not the most 5 star luxurious resort on the island but if u wanted that, be prepared to pay top dollar.
If you want a peaceful relaxing holiday with great service and beautiful surroundings go the Nora.
