Set a stone’s throw from the ocean, on the northern curve of Chaweng beach, this tranquil hillside property blends right into its tropical setting. As well as two lagoon-style swimming pools – both with children’s sections – you’ll find five excellent restaurants and plush sea-view suites.

Deluxe Hillside Room
Set mid-way up the hill, these retreats are set amid lush gardens and tropical blooms. Inside, a king size bed and modern bathroom await. Start your day with a dip in your deep-soak tub, before heading out for an alfresco coffee.

Deluxe Hillside Sea View Room
Seeking serenity? You’ve come to the right place. Each of these rooms features a private sea-view terrace – yours to relax on, with a day bed or dining set. We love the thoughtful extra amenities: such as bathrobes, slippers, and luxe toiletries.

Pool Villa Hillside Sea View
On the uppermost reaches of the hill, these villas boast beautiful sea views. Yes, it’s a walk to the beach, but who cares when you’ve got a private infinity pool just steps from your bed? Add a stunning alfresco dining set and outdoor shower, and you have a very romantic retreat indeed.

Pool Villa Beachside Sea View
As if its private infinity pool wasn’t impressive enough, this villa is just a minute’s walk from the beach – so you can swim wherever you please. Inside, a king size bed and deluxe bathroom await – with a double tub for bathing a deux.

Pool Villa Beachfront Sea View
A mere 10 metres from the sand, this retreat features a magnificent private pool, outdoor shower, and alfresco dining area – because you’ll want to make the most of that sublime fresh sea air. The four-poster king size bed boasts brilliant sea views too: your lie-ins have never looked so spectacular.

Additional room types available. Chat to your lovely Travel Expert to find the perfect room to suit you, and let us tailor-make it easy.

As well as succulent steaks, freshly-caught seafood, and other à la carte specialities, The Barge hosts fantastic theme nights – where you can feast on everything from beach barbecues to authentic cuisine from all over Thailand. At lunchtime, you’ll find us tucking into salads, sandwiches and sharing plates at The Pool Bar – and sipping drinks delivered straight to our sunlounger. Surrounded by tropical gardens and the sapphire-hued pool, this is one spectacular spot for sundowner cocktails too.

Ask our Flight Centre Concierge team about booking your restaurants in advance.

Why we recommend Nora Buri Resort & Spa

Your dream holiday just got closer. Nora Buri Resort & Spa is just three minutes from Samui Airport, so you can go from Arrivals to swim-up bar in the blink of an eye. The property is set on a hillside, so almost all of its luxurious lodgings boast ocean views – with lush landscaped gardens for extra privacy. You can spend your days stretching out on the sand, or wallowing in the two swimming pools (one on the hill, the other right next to the beach) – with waiter service straight to your sunlounger. The complimentary fitness centre includes a sauna and steam room, but for the ultimate indulgence we recommend booking a Thai massage at Anodas Spa – whose glass-fronted treatment rooms overlook the gardens and ocean. At night, take a tuk tuk or complimentary shuttle bus to Chaweng beach, to explore its nightlife and sights – or keep things local at the resort’s fabulous beachfront restaurants.
