We really enjoyed our stay at the Nora but came away feeling like if they changed a few things it would be a really great hotel. The location of the hotel was great, on a beautiful and secluded part of Chaweng bay. Near to all Chaweng's facilities, but still quiet and relaxing. Our room was great and i loved the outdoor shower, the pool is great etc etc. Our main problem was that the food was terrible - seriously, we were so disappointed, really underpar for what you would expect. Also the staff are a bit overpassive - their English is poor (I don't expect fantastic, but there is a problem if you can't be understood...). One night in the restaurant a group of kids took over the microphone and screamed down it (swear words and the lot) for a good 20-30 mins while we were trying to have a meal. At one point we even asked staff if they could turn off the microphone but they didn't...it really ruined our meal!!! But I don't want to turn all negative - this is a lovely place, just needs to be a bit more closely managed!

In early April we arrived at the Nora Beach at night with our 3 year old daughter after a day of travelling and were walked to our bungalow which was lovely and cool (since they had the air conditioning already on for us). Our cot bed arrived shortly after which was a huge wooden cot that our 3 (nearly 4) year old fitted in with room to stretch out in. This is free, to have an extra bed costs extra and to be honest our daughter loved her little castle!

In the morning we went onto the balcony and discovered we overlooked the swimming pool and sea; it was a fantasic view. The steep slope did meant that we were glad of our light weight buggy but it wasn't a problem at all. We were in the pool every day and becasue it was the start of the rainy season it occasional rained heavily but was warm and after an hour had all cleared up the sun had dried up all the water.

The restaurant was excellent for breakfast, cooked breakfast, omlettes/eggs cooked to order, pastries, cereals etc. We stayed in occasionaly for dinner becasue sometimes it was easier with a young one. The staff were very friendly and attentive and they love children!

The nearest town is Chaweng which is dangerous to walk with a pushchair, at least without one you can jump to the side. The easiest way is to jump into a taxi outside the resort. Negotiate a price before you get in, 200 THB gets you there.

There's a fantastic Italien restaurant 'Olivios' just down the road in another resort, it cost us 100 THB in the taxi, but you could walk it. The food was fantastic - highly recommended!!

We stayed at the Nora becasue we were attending a friends wedding there. It was lovely, everything you imagine a beach wedding would be like was true! The Nora did a fantastic job and made our stay there very enjoyable!

Once thing I would mention is that we went at Easter, their Songrak New Year festival. It's also a water festival for 3 days where locals throw water at each other in either pistol/bucket/ hose pipe or washing up bowl form. It's best to go out in anything you don't mind getting wet. It was a little intimidating for a young one though so we stuck to the resort and took taxis from place to place.

This was a lovely way to be introduced to Thailand and definately recommend it!
