beatiful rooms, amazing spa area
The staff were amazing. They were most friendly and helpful. The design and quality of the resort is outstanding. The resort exceeded our expectations.
The view, the friendly staff. The luxurious room, the private pool, the extremly helpfull staff, great breakfast and great in room dining. The inaccsessability via the only road to get there was a very unconditioned dirt road, which was dangerous to drive or ride a motorcycle on.
the best in the world
Beautiful hotel and grounds, amazing rooms. Staff were very friendly, beach was idyllic.
Since we liked our stay at Rasananda two years ago, we decided to book the same hotel again. We like the comfortable room, the friendly and courteous staff and the location at a beautiful beach and next to a little village with nice bars and restaurants. The food at the hotel itself is pricy compared to other restaurants around. Furthermore the Thai-Food at the hotel itself is rather westernized and therefore less authentic. The prices for the wines are high compared to Europe and the us.
wonderful new hotel. room garden with private pool fantastic!! the food is not expectative for a five stars hotel
Excelent resort! Loveley beach, great breakfast and very nice rooms. You pay more for 2 singas in the hotell bar than you do for 2 large singas and lunch 50 meter down the beach, but still. Thai massase in the back of the hotell is 1900BHT, might be very good, but you can get an hour of massase at the beach for 300BHT. That said, we`ll be back. At a resort like this I`d expect a bit more english speaking personell! Pricings a bit confusing. Visited in januar and our room should be about 22000 BHT a night, we paid about 8000. Check around before booking!
The hotel is amazing. Amazing location and great beach. High standard hotel. it's in the middle of the jungle on the beach! Hotel resturant is expensive (for tahiland). beach is 5 min walk from hotel but no problem. it's 45 min drive to hotel in bad roads, hotel bring you to the hotel and back but only once a day.
Beautiful room, great staff!!!!!!!!! During monsoon season the road towards the resort is very adventurous.
Beautiful location, silent, very relaxed ferry transfer was too expansive
very good location, easy access to the wonderful beach; it was very easy to rent a moto at the hotel (for a very reasonable rate) which gave us the opportunity to explore the island (very recommendable) the apartment rooms smelled of mould due to the dampness but maybe the bungalows don't have this problem (?); when we arrived there was some confusion about our reservation as the internet was down and we didn't have our reservation number with us but this was resolved after a few minutes
Verry nice bungalow, with great view. Love the hammock on the veranda. Restaurant is point on a hill with stunning views over the beach.
The location of the resort is fantastic with what feels like a private beach. Although the facilities were good, they still lacked in some of the additional services associated with the luxury suites. Simple things like an iron would have been useful.
Great comfort of rooms, great location (only five minutes walk to Haad Rin Beach), clean and amazing private beach, the best Spa service ever in Koh Phangan, The reception staff were very rude. maybe cuz it was the Full moon days and they were fed up with all the crowd, but that is no excuse to be rude & unhelpful. I have changed the booking from double to single, but they still forced me to buy the Full moon Party ticket for two people. at first they said we werent informed of the change, and then when I showed them the confirmation email, they said no you still have to pay for a second person. The Cocktail party was crap and the food & drinks were disgusting.
Beautiful resort - and probably the newest and most "fresh" resort in Koh Samui. But notice that construction is not ready yet - and the hotel is probably nut fully built until 2011. But after the construction is ready - there are few resorts that can match Nora Buri on the Island. We were upgraded to a pool villa - beach side, and it was stunning. The first 2 days we stayed hill-side, and the walk up to our room was tiring in the warmth. You could get the staff to drive you up - but if your room or villa is on the far end of the hill - it is actually quite a heavy walk from the pool and beach area. Try to get a room or villa on the beach side - then you are all set. The only part that was a little "downer" was the beach it self. The sand and everything was nice - but it's almost impossible to take a swim due to much sea shell, stones and other things. They should really clean up. But then again - the pool area was amazing and very clean. We stayed at the pool for 8-10 hours every day. Great service.
Jeg likte utsikten fra rommet vaart. Jeg likte ikke beligghet, mat servert paa frokostbufee og som ble spist til middag. Det var veldig uhyggelig atmosfere der.
So peaceful and beautiful! Friendly staff. Lovely design and decor of cabins. I had some bugs in my room.
The hotel is right on a private beach, the location is amazing, near the pier but isolated. The staff is very friendly and helpful, they speak English and good communication is not common in Thailand. Breakfast and restaurant are very good, you can borrow a kayak or snorkelling and other sporting equipment. WiFi is free. Our bungalow was beautiful with ac and sea view, We enjoyed every moment and value for money was excellent.
Nice pool area, beach okay, much nicer if you walk to the full moon party beach (5mins) to town, food good in restaurant rooms basic enough but comfortable
The hotel has its own nice beach. The photos looks like the pictures shown by booking. On the restaurant of the hotel you have many choices of both delicious tai and occidental food.It has its own spa and awesome massages. It's a little bit far away from the north of the island and you need scooter to move around the place near to the hotel.The places around the hotel don't look like as pretty as the north of the island.
Very nice rooms, good location in a beautiful beach, quiet but also close to to the town, good spa at reasonable prices, good food. I would recomend to everybody. Swimingpool was a bit dirty
The location, walking distance from the centre of Had Rin and at the beach.The food and cocktails were good. On the website the hotel looked nice, but the resort was a bit worn out, it seemed that they did not do any maintenance on the rooms and garden. Everthing looked old and broken, sunbeds at the pool were dirty and the room was very small, tiles in shower dirty and no mosquito net on window. Lock of room was not working properly.
The hotel's location was really excellent with a nice restaurant and private and beautiful beach. The food was excellent and reasonably priced too. The hammocks at our room and at the beach were unique. Hospitality lacked totally!!!.....No smiles and greetings at all!! No room service!!! Rooms were pretty ordinary and small for a 3 star!! Staff was the most unfriendliest kind than the rest of Thailand!! Spa was located right at the beach but the massage was not great!!
It was nicely tucked away from Haad Rin but walking distance. Very good for value. The food was a bit pricey but also good.
