EDITOR’S INDEPENDENT REVIEW: Nora Buri Resort is the ultra-luxurious sister to the original Nora Beach Resort, and is situated only a short distance further up the beach from the well-known original Nora. Style and location are the distinguishing factors for this modern, 5-star resort built in villa style up the side of a hill.

Style-wise, this is one of the most luxurious resorts in the Chaweng area, with a mix of pool villas and luxury rooms in two-storey buildings that all run up the side of a hillside looking directly east to the rising sun. Modern tropical Asian flavour runs throughout the architecture, with a lot of wood and stone work overlooking pools and Jacuzzis. Floor to ceiling glass doors and windows are a major feature throughout, letting in the light and emphasizing the grand ocean views that virtually every villa and room enjoys.

The location just north of Chaweng Beach has its plusses and minuses, which will suit many, but not all visitors. It’s close enough for a brisk walk to Chaweng’s famous zone of nightlife, shopping, restaurant and bars – though older guest will have to use the hotel’s transport to get back and forth. Importantly, this location has the double advantages of giving easy access to Chaweng's nightlife zone, yet it's well out of ear-shot of all boisterous activities, giving guests a very quiet retreat.

It must be noted that Nora Buri only just qualifies are ‘true beachfront’, for a road runs through the middle of the resort, cutting off the majority of the rooms up the hillside. But the main pools, restaurants and bars are down by the beachside. With an extensive free-form pool, this is a pleasant area.

The beach here is just so-so by Samui standards, and not great for swimming. The water is quite shallow, and the ocean floor is rocky. Guests can swim a little to the south near the old Nora Beach Resort. But for those happy to use the resort’s extensive, free-form pools, and the beach bar, the location is both very pretty and tranquil, especially around sunset.
