“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2012

Stayed in Nora Beach a while ago and absolutely enjoyed every minute. I travelled with children and the service was smooth and attentive. The breakfast was perfect and room very clean and spacious (suite).
It we wanted some extra service (taxis, hotel in Bangkok or a dinner reservation) elsewhere all was dealt with a nice smile and friendly attitude.

Would absolutely go back.

Stayed at the resort between 3rd and 5th Jan 2012. We had to take an early morning Bangkok Airways flight and arrived there at 9am. The published check-in time was 2 p.m. so the reception made us wait til 1:30 inspite of requests for an early check-in. Its understandable though, since its a high season time. We stayed in a Superior room with a garden view. Rooms were tidy and decor was nice though looks slightly dated.
Linen change and room cleaning was done daily and the staff always bore a friendly smile and greeted us every time they passed us.
The beach is quite nice though the uphill walk back to the room was slightly tiring. The resort is located slightly away from the main Chaweng market with only a handful of free shuttles at fixed times being provided by the hotel. At other times, hotel charges 50 bhat per person for drops to the main market which I feel is unnecessary and the hotel could provide a free shuttle.
Overall a nice stay and would definitely look forward to come back here.

Room Tip: While choosing superior rooms chose the building block situated near to the beach, that way the trek...

We have just arrived home from a stay at the Nora beach. We had a Sea view room and it was fantastic. Very spacious with everything you need, The best part was the view.... Priceless.
Breakfast was wonderful and loads to chose from. The staff was friendly and some was very helpful.
The only negative i would give is the size of the resort and you need to be pretty fit to walk around or even just to go tp breakfast!
It is all built on a hill so pretty exausting, however the staff are on hand to drive you to and from your rooms on buggys if needed.
If you want a quiet time then this is perfect however if you want any kind of night life or shopping then Chaweng is not far but not close enough to walk. We had to rely on Taxi's or Tuck tucks to get in but works out quite expensive. The hotel advertise a bus that goes into Chaweng hourly at 50 baht but not once was charged this amount! One occasion we was charged 200 baht and another 80 baht... no consistency and considering how much we paid to stay i would have liked maybe a free bus in? The only other thing was they had a us in to Chaweng but not one back? We spent quite a lot of our holiday money on cabs.
However in spite of this i would reccomend this hotel.

Room Tip: All the rooms i saw was fantastic

I picked this resort on the basis of the reviews and was not at all disappointed.

We stayed in a standard room which was great. (We only really slept and dressed there). The standard of cleanliness was great. the room was serviced to a pretty good standard everyday.

The location was great, but it depends what you are after. personally, I would not want to stay in Chaweng as it was pretty full-on and commercial. The resort is about 2k from the centre of town and the "tuk-tuk" cost about 50 bht (can get it cheaper) each way.

The pool and the beach are perfect. you are away from the hustle and bustle and it is a great place to relax. Even the beach vendors are more laid back.

Overall, we loved the place. Would recommend.

Why choose anywhere else for Mama Jacquie's 50th celebration!?
What an amazing resort- far beyond our expectations.
Welcome cocktail, friendly staff and AMAZING views!.

From the moment we arrived we were greeted by the firendly staff who couldn't do enough for us. We arrived early to find that our rooms were already ready and meticulously presented. No matter which part of the resort, there were fantastic views to be had!- the walk up the hill was sometimes a challenge, but golf buggies were on hand to give us a ride after we had had too much of the sumptious breakfast

What can we say about the breakfast?
Best spread imaginable, from fresh waffles and chefs on hand to cook eggs whichever way you wished- not to mention top notch hygiene.- each morning was a foodies delight that we talk about still so many months on!.

A special thank you to the General Manager, Venice and all of thier staff for thier phenomenal hospitablity- knowing our names and remembering our orders each morning! our list could go on!.

Another thank you goes out to the pool bar staff, Than(g?), Thien and James and others who made drinking in a tropical paradise all the more fun! Good Tunes, Good cocktails, great views.

Thank you to the always smiling security staff who ensured we crossed safely several times per day!
To the Maintenance Staff and Gardeners- thank you for keeping such an immaculate resort for us.

What a safe fantastic place is was to stay for a group of 4 women.
Dont hesiate to book- your expectations will be exceeded.

Travel Dates- 22 October 1st November.
