I visited Nora Beach, with a group of friends, and our visit was unplanned. We came across Nora Beach, on the latestays.com website, and noticed that the price was very good. We did not book it then, but reached Samui without a reservation and proceeded directly to the hotel. We realized that the price at the hotel directly was even lesser than latestays for same day booking.
Firstly we took a look at the rooms before making a choice. The property is built on the beach, spread over a hillock. Great tropical feel, with loads of vegetation all around and the rooms are spread around. We liked what we saw so we chose a superior room. We asked them to give us a further price reduction. The staff said that was difficult, but instead they gave us a free room upgrade to the next category villa for the same price.The price was just about $100 per night on triple occupancy
The room we got was a garden villa, and it was great. good sized room, large bathroom, indoor and outdoor showers and a great balcony / sundeck overlooking a waterfall (manmade ofcourse)
The pool is all the way down at the beach and is great. looks right across the ocean, many sunbeds and reasonably large sized. Be warned that if your villa is near the reception, then its a fair bit of walk up to your room up the hill from the pool / beach
now for breakfast, it was very very good. great number of options and suits every palate. I remember coming back at 7.00 am one morning after a particularly late night of partying, and walked straight into the brekkie room. What i loved seeing was pork fried rice and stir fried beef, and stir fried veggies among the options. Exactly what you want after a lot of alchohol!!
The hotel's location itself is not the north end of Chaweng beach, which is the quieter side. If you want to be right in the middle of the action, choose someplace else, because from Nora beach it is a bit of a walk there. 15-20 minutes on foot and 3 mins by taxi. We liked the distance, the walk was a good way to build up an appetite.
The service staff are excellent. Always smiling and always helpful, they're a main reason why the place is so welcoming. Only the early morning egg station attendant was a bit off, messing up by order a few times.
Overall, whether you're a young group of friends, or a family with a few kids or an elderly couple wanting to unwind, this place is suitable for all. Its large enough to accommodate everyones needs but still feels private and cozy. Big thumbs up!
