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

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The beachside Villa with the private pool was the best decision for those early swims to wake up and those late night dips to cool off. The inside gym and spa were well used by us. The meals were so tasty and the cocktail went down a treat. The service was fantastic, everyone was lovely and super attentive. Would definitely be coming back in the future.

Beautiful hotel , the pools are great, staff extremely helpful and polite. The restaurants have plenty of choice and the breakfast is amazing - the egg station cooks do a great job. Unfortunately it is a little out of the way, plus the beach is not suitable for swimming. The spa is beautiful with great massage and the gym is alright. Only one shuttle bus a day to Chewang

We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed our pool, staff service, and dining options, especially our extensive breakfast and the great job of our egg station cooks. We also appreciate your appreciation for our spa services and gym facilities.

An amazing stay on a beautiful island. All the staff were so kind and welcoming. My room was made up beautifully everyday by the very polite and friendly housekeeper, Ms. Wan. The views from my balcony were incredible and my room was huge! Loved the choices at breakfast. Would definitely stay again.

Brilliant location away from the crowd however only a short ride into the touristy areas (appx A$11). The room was spacious although not lavish which is not a problem as I spent most of my time by the pool. Although there were lots of tourists staying I never failed to find a place by the pool. The breakfasts are great with lots of choice. Dinners at the restaurant by the seaside were very relaxing. Lovely staff and generally a very chilled place. Bed comfortable and the bathroom was huge. My room had a great view of the ocean and the air-conditioning very efficient.

We had such a great time here. Wonderful food, beautiful rooms. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Bai Tong, Lester & Nan. Highly recommend the floating platter. Great cocktails. The outlook at Nora Buri is truly special. We stayed in the seaside pool Villa and the sunrises are just incredible.

Really nice hotel and great location if you are not that bothered about having a nice beach or prefer pool to the beach. Pros: -Very nice rooms. Very specious with lots of greenery. Huge bathroom. Lovely balcony. -Friendly staff. Very accommodating and go out of their way to help you. -Lovely infinity pools with stunning views. There are three in total. -Great gym although I found it a little bit overcrowded later in the afternoon. But great if you can make it there early in the morning. -Amazing breakfast restaurant with stunning views and lots of delicious food that can cater for any taste. Very friendly staff to assist you. I would recommend to try their omelets that are done fresh on demand. -Great location. Close to Chewang for wonder around the city, local restaurants, shopping, or bars. Only about 5 minutes drive on Tuk-tuk for 200 Bhat. Also if you like lovely beaches - you can get a tuk tuk for 300 bhat to Thong son beach (which is in my opinion the loveliest out of all beaches in Samui). Also quite close to the peer. If you wish, you can hire a little motorcycle for 200 bhat a day and save money on taxis. Cons: -Beach not swim friendly. Very rocky and I think quite dangerous if you have children. Huge waves crashing on the wall between the hotel grounds and the sea. -One pool has thorns at the bottom- I think they fall from the palm tree above the pool. I got two thorns in two different days. My little boy got 9 in one day. Luckily the first aider staff helped to take them all out and disinfect the wounds for my little guy but it was very stressful for him and he was crying a lot. I would recommend wearing sandals in that pool. -Sometimes our room would not get cleaned or they would forget to put new towels. We had to ask the staff to get some new ones on those occasions.

Nice and friendly staff. Best service! Beautiful Hotel! Food: Really good thai restaurant and breakfast was really good. Great roomservice. Spa: Great massage and spa area, Nice pools. Gym: Great gym! But should be open 24/7. The only minus is that we didnt Get roomservice before 4 pm everyday, and we had to ask them to fill up the fridge with water and fresh towels.

Treated like queens and kings by all the staff. Wonderful food and service. Special mention to “Ball” the traffic control man out the front of the hotel who always has a huge smile or salute for you and keeps you safe crossing the road or flags down a ride to town for you. This was our trip trip 10years apart but we won’t be leaving such a big gap between the next time! Thanks you Nora Buri Resort & Spa Koh Samui
