With a stunning view and service Paresa provided during our stay, my parents and I have a very pleasant time in Talay Suite. We were in room 153 which turn out to be only one occupied room for entire villa which makes our stay so private and the view from the room is incredible. We love how you spread the... More

We visited the Paresa hotel in March 2014 as our honeymoon. We had an amazing time, lovely villa, view and pool. The staff was amazing. We especially liked Emma and Patrick :) Ended up falling pregnant on our honeymoon and have now a beautiful daughter. We won't forgot the amazing time we had. :)

I recently spent 3 days at Paresa and having previously visited Phuket it was great to experience it in a totally different way. Paresa is set in the cliffside, therefore giving you stunning uninterrupted views. It is a modern resort, very quiet and peaceful with great food and an amazing spa (the best massage I have ever had in Thailand).... More

Although small in size, Paresa is a very beautiful resort. The rooms are spacious and their amenities are nice. The ambience of the whole hotel is very relaxing and serene. However, I'm not sure I would stay at Paresa again. We went in early January and prices were extremely high. With such high prices, we expected everything to be perfect.... More

Dear Jiuhn Thank you for your great review and it looks as if 95% of your stay was fantastic and we thank you for all the great feedback. January is peak season and naturally rates are higher in all resorts, not just in Paresa. I'm sorry if the wifi did not work and I will keep an close eye in... More

We were given drinks and towels as soon as we walked in. Check-in was easy like most resorts, but with an extra personalized touch because you got to pick the soap you wanted to use during your stay. The lobby has a very modern minimalist feel that is seen throughout the resort that was very appealing to my style. The... More

Dear Thomas Thank you for your great review and we have looked into all mentioned issues. We will certainly use this to better ourselves and use your constructive criticism to train and make corrections where needed. The infinity deck will be replaced in the low season, unfortunately it's not possible to do such repairs in the high season. Due to... More

I was part of my best friend's wedding at Paresa last weekend so this review is more for couples who are thinking of hosting a wedding there. Pros: - Breathtaking views. Perfect for phototaking. The resort is situated on a beautiful cliff overlooking a brilliant sunset and neighbouring property and landscape. - Beautiful pool area at night. Beautiful dinner setting.... More

Dear Sixiu Thank you for your great feedback although somewhat disconcerting. Lights and air con units indeed all have a limited life span and I'm sorry if you experienced some issues. We did have a very good look at the air con unit that day and it really was not faulty. All we can think of is that there were... More

Paresa occupies a stunning spot on the globe. It's off the beaten path (not too far) so it is peaceful and relaxed. The staff at Paresa was exceptionally courteous and friendly and we were so well looked after. I felt like royalty but it was relaxed and not at all stuffy.

I chose this hotel for my recent trip to Thailand due to a fantastic deal on secret escapes. I saw it as my only opportunity to be able to afford a trip somewhere with my own private pool!
