We got married at this resort in 2007 – stayed in the beach front villa which was absolutely gorgeous! We returned now in June 2015 to visit & see our love tree and we were really amazed how wonderful the resort & staff still are. They really go out of their way for you & are genuinely the nicest people! Michelle – the new wedding planner came to introduce herself and really made us feel like we were home! Lloyd & Michelle – thank you again for everything.
WE WILL SEE YOU SOON!
Wow wow wow!!!!! Is all I can say 🙂 from the moment we entered the resort till the day we departed was absolutely amazing. We stayed at Nora buri for 7 nights and had 42 family and friends stay at the resort with us and witness our marriage organised by the delightful Michelle our wedding planner. Words cannot describe the beautiful sea views from the whole resort, 2 awesome swimming pools and fantastic happy staff. All our wedding guests were so impressed by the staff and how they all went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. To the General manager and Michelle…… no words can describe how wonderful you made me and Ben’s wedding day!!! From the flowers, venue set up, reception and organization everything was perfect. As all my guests said “the day was absolutely magical” Thankyou so much 🙂 we have all decided that we will see you in 18 months for another holiday. Thankyou for the beautiful memories and unbelievable start to married life 🙂
Room Tip: Room 716 is awesome. Excellent seaview and close to everything.
We stayed at Nora Buri Resort and Spa 2 weeks in March. It was one of our best vacations we ever had!
We found Nora Buri through Tripadvisor and after reading numerous reviews and comparing with the other hotels we decided to stay at this hotel.
Our staying was full of small pleasant surprises starting from the meeting at the airport when we were presented flower bracelets, greeting at the reception where we were met by friendly smiling staff and general manager personally and given a complimentary cocktail and towels to cool down and finishing with the final surprise – wedding gift at the check-out.
Location of the hotel is very convenient. It’s located at the end of Chaweng beach, it allows to hide from the crowds of tourists and noise but at the same time if you want some social life or do shopping, city center is within a stone throw, just 5 minutes of driving (as well as the airport). You can use free shuttle or order a taxi at the reception desk. No problems with the transportation.
Hotel rooms are very comfortable and clean. We were impressed by the size of the room – very spacious, especially bathroom (half size of the room itself). We had a deluxe sea view room on the 2nd floor, but we didn’t have a chance to enjoy the view much because there were lots of interesting things outside Our room was located on the steep hill, but we enjoyed this ‘exercise’ after our full meals. If you have problems with walking in the hills then you can call reception to request the buggies.
The hotel has two magnificent infinity pools: one is on hillside, the second close to the sea. The pools are equipped with built-in Jacuzzi and bars with the various choice of drinks and snacks to every taste. The pools are not overcrowded, they are large enough to accommodate all guests. Free sun loungers and towels were always available whenever we came.
As for breakfasts there was a choice of traditional Thai and Western food, fresh fruits, juice, seafood etc. If you have just B&B option and you eat out it’s still worth dining at the hotel restaurant “The Barge” and…mmmmmmm it was so delicious!!! The portions were huuuge!! We had a romantic a mouth watering dinner set in a gazebo decorated with the candles and flowers on the beach – highly recommended.
As for the wedding it was fabulous!! The ceremony was organized without a hitch. It was sooo romantic and breath-taking. We didn’t worry about anything. Thanks to Michelle, Anna and other staff I felt like a real princess. So much attention and care! Flowers, decoration, menu, live music, celebrant, staff dressed in wedding attire… We liked everything! We saw weddings at the other hotels ours was definitely the best!
Thanks, thanks, thanks to all Nora Buri staff for such a wonderful vacation!!! We would definitely stay at this hotel again; it’s a highly recommended resort.
The resort is absolutely visually astonishing in all of it’s parts, from a grand lobby, to its unique pool side bars, breathe taking views from seemingly every corner of this massive resort.
The food from the Thai restaurant is affordable but with no skimping on excellence. Drinks are always superb and also affordable.
The Barge Restaurant offers absolutely amazing cuisine, our best meal on our month long holiday in Thailand.
The Spa treatment we got with our wedding package was amazingly relaxing and far better than all the cheap and cheerful lot you’ll find everywhere else.
We decided to get married at Nora Buri and right from the beginning the experience was effortless and magical. The staff at Nora Buri are worthy of your trust, and we felt they over-delivered in every way with regards to the most special day of our lives, our wedding.
Our guests all felt and experienced the same thing, Nora Buri is simply an excellent experience.
P.S. BEST BREAKFAST EVER! Full spread, you name it they’ve got it, including thai desserts, dragon fruit salad, eggs cooked to order, FRESH WAFFLE!
We had our wedding at Nora Buri Resort in July 2011 and although i was a little nervous and unsure about how it was going to turn out, i have to say that i…t was beyond anything i had imagined the perfect beach wedding to be. The staff were so amazing right from the start when i first contacted them via email. I was lucky enough to speak to Lloyd, (wedding planner and hotel manager) face to face on two occassions as he was at the Melbourne bridal expo, this enabled us to ask any questions or voice any concerns and also to liase with him in general although he was also available via email. They were remarkably organised right from the word go which meant that we were totally relaxed on the day and the months leading up to the wedding. The one thing that really moved me was how much pride they took to make our wedding day perfect, they took everything so seriously and perfected every aspect of our day, to be honest we barley had to worry about a thing!!
And to top it all off the final bill at the end of it all was about a quarter of what you would pay in Australia, (where we are from) and you would never get the service, expertise and warmth that the staff at Nora Buri Resort offered.
I can honestly say that our wedding day was more perfect and amazing than i could have ever dreamed and i highly reccommend anyone who is thinking about having a beach wedding to check out Nora Buri first, i doubt you will look any further. We can’t wait to have our 10 year reunion at Nora Buri!!! Make that our 5 year reunion!
My husband and I got married at Nora Buri Resort in June 2011. It was a magical wedding that my mind could not have created better. The whole set up and service was fantastic and all staff have put so much effort into creating a romantic and intimate environment for he two of us to declare our love for one another. The whole preparation before the wedding was done via email to Michelle who is the wedding coordinator and a very very lovely person. She was helpful, friendly and very warm in her nature. We have only the best things to say about the whole management and staff at Nora Buri.
Furthermore we had a very good photographer on our Wedding. Pui from www.kohsamuiphotography.com was the perfect choice for a couple who is camera shy. My husband in particular gets very nervous in situations where he is the center of attention. Pui was funny and friendly and made us both feel very comfortable. She is a great artist who knows where and how in order to achieve perfect shots. I was extremely impressed with her performance.
All in all, our wedding experience was magical and will be remembered for ever. The first opportunity we get to go back on our anniversary is something we are both looking forward to. Thank you Nora Buri on your exceptional service and care and thank you Pui on your wonderful artwork in photography and friendly nature.
