“4 stars? really?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

It a hotel/resort of very dificult access. You can do it by a allwheel drive but that we never could get. By a small boat pending on a non profesional service makes this site only available for adventures and with no timeshedule as Backpackers.

We did arrive late, 21:00 after some trouble to get a boat out there ( 15 minuts ) and had a bad look from the responsable of the pool and dinner area as their kitchen was about to close. There is nowhere you can go to eat unless you take a walk to the "BigBlue" resort, recomended eatting place :)

After some dinnner we went to our room, nice and big but after shower with cold water ( only hot when there is sun) the towel was dirty and did smell really bad of humity as the rest of the viallage, and the bed did smell bad to, it was clean but humity sticking..
To village, 325, was just next to a big diesel generator, electricity for the resort and did make a "nice" brooming sound all day and night long...
No soap, shampoo... offered at the room. Even a 3* hotel we stayed latter had anti-mosquito, this, nothing.

The employees was kind! that's the really best part, and the dinner new year was fantastic and FREE! good, really good point!

If they make a fix to the fatal cleaning, fix the noise of a generator for those who stay and village 325 and 326... excelent. (There is only about 26 villages).

Beach, great, relex total! you can walk to town or take a taxi boat ( prices from 200 to ¿? maybe 500thb each... pending on demand and if the taxi driver wish ).

Room Tip: Only for backpackers or no time shedule ahead... if you have to take a ship, relax...you will maybe...

Dear Valued Guest,

I am very sorry that Pariya Resort was not for you, however the majority of our guest have a very different opinion. I would like to personally apologize, as I know myself that the interaction from the management and the staff with the guest ensures that all guest are welcomed by name and greeted everyday with big smiles and the custom "Yai". I have so many thank you letters and returning guests,......... I am in shocked.

Please may i give you my personal email address as I would very much like to know more regarding your stay.

Once again from all the Pariya Team "apologies"

Haad Yuan is by far the best beach in koh-phangan, and Pariya is the best resort (and the only one) on the beach.
The staff are absolutely amazing, from managers to waitress to cleaners, they all make you feel welcome all day long, and will answer any of your questions with a big smile :-)
The chef was brilliant, the food was so tasty we almost had all our meals in the resort every day.
Pariya has got a private speed boat, to take you to wherever you want to go, as well as a ride from Samui and back, best boat ride we ever had.
We will definitely come back, can't wait for the next time :-)
See you soon Pariya Resort.

Room Tip: we had the closest room to the pool, suggested by the manager... It's close to everything, lit...

No complaints at all , we were made to feel very welcome. The manager was very friendly and very helpful. We chose a suite private room which was spotless and a good size with led cable wide-screen tv. Excellent location and fantastic value for money.

Beautiful rooms, beautiful beach and Tai and his staff were amazing. No negative comments, had a great stay at Pariya, will definitely be back. If you can wake up early and catch sunrise, definitely worth it. Very much looking forward to returning.

This was our second sty here n 14 months and we really noticed a big improvement in the service under Tai and his staff. Thank you. We love Haad Yuan, its a beautiful beach and not crowded. Hopefully it will remain that way. Lots of great places to eat, do yoga and just chill. After I left to return home my wife decided to stay on longer and returned to Pariya on her own ...thanks Tai for looking after her. She just loves this place. But don't tell too many people as we like it with no people. Not a place for small children. They should make this beach a kid free zone!
