“Even better the 2nd time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

My husband and I stayed in this resort two years ago for a romantic holiday and it was great. We enjoyed the rooms, views and location. So this year we planned a trip with our close friends and family. It was a great surprise to see that the hotel is under new management and is really improving. The service was excellent, so everything was just perfect. We couldn't have asked for a more accommodating hotel for our holiday.
I would recommend an ocean facing villa, for those who don't mind the exercise. The rooms are polished concrete, which we really liked. However some of the rooms are painted white which others may prefer. The rooms don't have dvd players. The wifi is expensive and doesn't reach the rooms, so this is something to consider if you need it in the room. But, it's just as nice to sit by the pool and on the beach to use wifi.
The breakfast buffet is a really nice way to start your day.
- So for either a romantic holiday or a family get together, I would recommend Pariya to anyone who likes the luxury and wants the peacefulness of Haad Yuan beach.

Room Tip: Closer to the beach, Ocean facing villas. But pretty much all the ocean facing villas are really oce...

I stayed at Pariya resort twice during my stay in Thailand which really is testament to how great Pariya is. The rooms are huge with AC and a mini bar and the most beautiful bathrooms with sunken baths. The location is perfect right in the middle of the small bay with wonderful access to the beach and the only pool in Haad Yuan.
The bay has a few bars and one great restaurant Bamboo which i ended up eating most of the meals at as the breakfast at Pariya is great but other food is average. The cocktail bar does make up for it though with a great happy hour that often gets extended if you ask nicely!
The staff are lovely and the general manager Tai could not have been more helpful with both local info and general practical advise.
i have read some of the other reviews mentioning fly's etc. however lets not forget this is Thailand with a rich and plentiful cornucopia of wildlife, lizards, butterflies, mosquitos and yes fly's!
I love this place and hope to be back very soon (in time for happy hour!)

Me and my partner couldnt of chose a better rsort to stay in after all the hussle and bustle of Bangkok, the place was sucluded and homely and the locals and staff couldnt of been any more friendly and welcoming, its a bit of a trek from the drop of bat koh samui but its so worth the journye, we didnt want to leave and will deffinatley be coming back! The villa was amazing and was so secluded, i would not recommend this place if you dont like lizards or ghekos etc they are all around the resort but we love them!

All in all the resort is great, being the only 5 star resort an that beach which I may add Hadd Yaun is undoubtedly the best beach/area in Koh Phangan.

The Manager Tai Plum is very helpful, he knows everything tourist wise about the island and is extremely good at his job.

The bar manager is very moody and unprofessional, at times quite rude. drink elsewhere, Good Hope, Ocean Rock or Big Blue

The rooms are fantastic, cleaned as soon as you leave for breakfast.

The pool and lounging areas, beach, are amazing.

The music they play from the bar needs a revamp (far to cheesy and repetitive)

Dont leave a tip as they take a tip for everything you buy,

all in all I had the best holiday of my life, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Room Tip: deluxe rooms are really good, just behind the games rooms

I've just returned from Pariya Resort and it was aboslutely amazing! We stayed at one of their beautiful villas a little up the hill with a nice view over the resort. It's not a centara hotel anymore and we have been told that management is doing everything to make guess more satisfied. Cheaper prices (based on the prices local resturants and spas offer) and better service. While we were there, the service was great! The staff is very friendly and attentive even though you are sitting in the last corner of the beach.

They have a beautyful pool for the people who don't like to swim in the sea and a gaming and internet room for a little bit of entertaining. They fulfill every wish you have for some extra cost. I think that is a great service. A family which was there asked for a little bit of Jet Ski fun and they have two jet skis the next day!

The rooms were beautifully decordated when we arrived and cleaned every day! The GM told us that they will get a speed boat shortly and guests will be picked up from Koh Samui directly and you don't have to travel all the way to thongsala and take a taxi to haad rin before taking a long tail boat to haad yuan. This will make everthing so much easier.

This hotel is trully off the path and we loved it!!

We stayed there for two nights and we will definitely go back when in Koh Phangan.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the beach. Otherwise you will have to walk many stairs!

We only stayed for a day from morning until evening as we booked the private trip from Centara Bhundhari Resort & Spa Samui which we were travelling by the speedboat with our own private butler from the main hotel where we stayed.

There were just the us on the boat with 2 staff...So private and romantic. The hotel and the room was so cute and romantic. Me and my husband had a relaxing time on the beach. The food was excellent!!! The staff were friendly. The Spa was amazing!!!!!

I highly recommened this hotel for people who really want to getaway from a busy life and want to be private xxx

We expected a lot when we booked this as our final destination to say goodbye to Thailand and we were a little disappointed overall. It could have been great apart from the little things that dragged it down.

- Fly infestation, absolutely everywhere meaning every breakfast was a battle and sitting by the pool was swats of fun.

- You were taxed on every drink and meal there, this was due mainly to the fact it's the only resort with a pool meaning everyone descends on it leaving guests often without a sun lounger. The tax they put on the drinks for these guests apply to people staying at the hotel too.

- Hot water never worked, not too bad though as they are conserving energy but still a bit off.

- Staff were not helpful at all when we arrived at the pier, when we spoke to them they just pretty much said make your own way there.

On the plus side, the rooms were lovely and clean and beds were comfy and the beach and pool were brilliant.

On the whole, I'd recommend not staying here on Koh Pha Ngan if you have the choice of staying somewhere in Koh Tao or Samui for the night. It's exclusive and on a secluded beach, but not as beautiful as say the Coral Bay Resort in Samui and a similar price.

Tips if you stay here -

Nip over to the other resorts for any food and drinks - a lot cheaper and tastier.

Take your own drinks to the pool with you or bring them from your minibar.

Try and get breakfast in bed to keep the flies at bay.
