Stayed at Nora in March 2007 for 2 weeks. Actually we were supposed to stay at Kandaburi but our travel agent had overbooked, so they moved us to Nora and upgraded us to an Ocean Pool Villa, and all I can say is WOW! The villa was right on the beach - with own private streatch of sand and sun chairs + umbrella - and with its own pool. Big bedroom, big livingroom, very big bathroom, 2 flat screen tvs, absolutely beautiful! Could never have afforded it ourselves, but are so pleased to have gotten to experience luxury like this :) The rest of the grounds are beautiful as well, and the staff very nice and helpful. Also thought the breakfast was great with a "wisiting" cook every day - one day making pancakes, the other tempura, then deep fried fruits etc etc. Did not have dinner at the hotel as prefered to go into Chaweng for that, it costs 50 bath / person on the songtaew taxis. Also visited the spa and tried one of their special 2,5 hour promotions with steam room, bodywrap, facial and massage and it was bliss! We were very happy at Nora and can only dream of returning to stay in and Ocean Pool Villa again some day...

The Nora Beach hotel is ok. We stayed there for 11 nights and it is indeed pretty, located just out of the hustle and bustle of Chaweng Beach. You cannot walk to town however because the road is very dangerous, and our attempts were always thwarted by the crazy drivers of Thailand and tourists overtaking each other dangerously and as there is no footpath you nearly get run over every time. If you are a business traveller requiring internet like us, DO NOT choose this hotel. Internet service is very poor, and you have to pay for a wireless card by the hour although they have wireless set up.
The staff are lovely and attentive, and breakfast is great. However for the rest of your meals choose elsewhere to eat as the restaurant food needs improvement to keep up with the fabulous choices closer to and in the main drag of Chaweng. We got gastro or food poisoning the first three days of our stay which definitely tainted our stay and we had only eaten at the hotel at this stage.
On a lighter note the spa is wonderful, you must try it.
If you have any mobility problems DO NOT choose this hotel either as the hotel is located throughout a steep hill with many steps. The superior rooms were a great size. Our friends chose to stay in a villa which had an adjoining door with the next door villa. The people next door were smokers and all their smoke and late night noise would filter through to their villa which they weren't happy about, but after comlaining they were upgraded to an ocean view villa which was gorgeous!
So overall our stay was adequate and relaxing, however the few glitches that we had put a damper on the hotel.

We stayed at this hotel last year and we found it to be a great hotel in a great location. We did not try the restaurant except for breakfast, which was good but nothing incredible. The pool was fantastic and never all that busy during our stay, never had trouble getting a sunbed. The Pool bar was great with very friendly bar staff. We stayed in a villa and found it to be of a great size and standard. Excellent bathroom and small private garden with outdoor shower. The beach in front out the hotel was fairly small but clean. Staff were friendly and efficient, The hotel is located on a fairly steep hill but carts are available if called. The hotel is approx 15mins walk to main shopping area and easily done by foot or 100bht in a taxi (very expensive considering the distance)
