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

I stayed in a hillside ocean view villa which itself was lovely and has the most wonderful outlook. The service was somewhat helpful, although other than the manager, no one could ever actually do anything (they would just say "sorry" and leave it at that). The reoccurring problem with this resort is that it has been hit very hard by the pandemic and rather than "keeping calm and carrying on" they have taken the "batten down the hatches" approach. I suppose that is why it is so much cheaper at the moment. -The in-room coffee machine has gone (after some litigation I managed to persuade them to reinstall it) -All the western food in the restaurants has gone -Three-quarters of the breakfast buffet has gone (only the most basic items remain) -The shuttle service has gone -The minibar has gone -Two of the three restaurants have closed and the one that is open closes at 20:00. -Room service stops at 19:30 -The sauna/steam/gym is closed at 17:30 -Only two bottles of drinking water are included per-person-per-day As I wrote, the manager did try to put things right and the room and the pool area are wonderful so maybe having almost no other services will not bother you. N.B. Not the hotel's fault at all, but it is worth noting that the beach in front of the hotel is rocky and the area next to it is a rubbish dump. You will have to walk through the rubbish dump beach to get to the non-rocky area if you want to swim in the sea.

This is a beautiful location and the staff are fantastic. The island of Samui is empty and this hotel definitely was slow but it was great to see the warm and welcoming staff still trying to stand out from the rest. I really enjoyed my visit here and would absolutely recommend it.

They made our stay special with their warm service and helpfulness. Aside from an amazing view, they helped us figure out bookings for travel to neighboring island and how to plan our itinerary. We would definitely come back here again!
