Indeed our Heaven of Heavens From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Jazz and Katie we felt completely at home . We had a Cliff pool Villa with absolutely stunning infinity views of the Andaman Sea . From the Sala we could watch the maritime comings and goings of the Luxury Yachts and the LongTail Boats , large sea mammals jumping out of the water and the majestic soaring of a pair of Sea Eagles . The staff at Paresa are one big family who clearly love what they do. Breakfast is delightful- with a large range of freshly prepared Asian and European foods. Evening meals were a fusion of tastes exquisitely prepared and accompanied by breathtaking sunsets from the restaurant where after sun down you can watch the lights of the Squid boats beaming out like alien eyes watching you . Mesmerising . Do take the complementary shuttle down to Kamala to the beach and enjoy a Singha beer on the sea front while watching the world go by . 20 minutes in the other direction from the Hotel is Patong with its bustling nightlife if you fancy a night on the town . The team who deliver all the luxury in sumptuous, immaculately kept surroundings are terrific and we can’t thank them enough . Special mention to Name who kept our room spotless . To trainee View at breakfast , her smile is infectious . Wit in the evening , who was terrific and made us feel like VIPs. Katie, you were amazing, looking after everything for us . Anthony . You run a special place in Paradise . Kop Khun Ka . We will be back 💕

Dear paulnjude, A delight to read your comments and I think you pretty much have covered it all, so thank you so much for these words. Being one big family is quite unique; as a stand-alone hotel, privately owned and not part of any group or chain, we are able to operate as one unit and I am glad that you noticed this. Our staff are the backbone of the guest experience and to make you feel relaxed and joyous is a big result for the team. I will pass on your praises to all the mentioned persons and we very much all look forward to your return. Heavenly regards, Anthony Dupont, General Manager

Dear Joseph, Thank you for your positive comments and very glad that our staff, views and maintenance resulted in an 'amazing' experience. We keep the maintenance as high as we can which means continuous, having lots of wood and being by the sea! Thank you as well for commenting on the value as we are trying to offer the levels expected for the price paid, and this not only comes through the hardware of the property but the software...or in other words the staff, our Angels. I hope you will be able to include Paresa on any return visit to Phuket. Heavenly regards, Anthony Dupont, General Manager

There were 2 weddings in 4 nights that we stayed at the resort. This limits access to common space at the resort (especially since there is no beach). If you are the guest of a wedding, then I am sure your stay would be great, but otherwise, expect to have much of the resort off limits to your use during the sunset/evening time

Dear Will, Thank you for your comments and whilst it is true we had 2 weddings over 4 days, I would like to clarify that the first wedding had a ceremony on the Miracle Lawn from 10h30 to 11h00 in the morning and then a private breakfast in a private room. The second wedding had a ceremony on the Miracle lawn at 17h00 to 18h00 followed by a private dinner below the Infinity Pool. We sent a letter to all guests informing them of the dinner and that all the public spaces, restaurants, Andaman gallery were open as normal except the lawn during those times mentioned above. Regarding the comment that "much of the resort was off limits" , please feel free to contact me so I can understand further as I am not sure what happened to your stay experience for you to mention this, and I will certainly investigate further. Heavenly regards, Anthony Dupont General Manager

A wonderful place with privacy, luxury and old-world service values. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Staff are uniformly excellent and genuine in their work. Private pool is a serous boon for sunset floating. It’s worth it IMHO. Breakfast buffet A+ don’t be out off by walking up the steep hill to dinner- it helps burn the calories. You can always call a buggy if you feel lazy…

We hosted our destination wedding at Paresa. We cannot recommend this venue enough. For a start the facilities and location are absolutely stunning. It is wow factor combined with “ahh” relaxation straight upon arrival and all throughout the resort. The staff were impeccable. Extremely warm whilst quietly attending to those added service details that turn an experience from good to great. They really make their guests feel special. Food and beverage outstanding! Chef Alex coordinated a phenomenal rehearsal dinner BBQ in our villa for our families which was a great ice breaker to kick off the weekend. The wedding reception dinner was equally perfect. Paresa’s wedding planner Khun Yui organised all the events seamlessly. We just needed to say how we wanted the vibe of our wedding weekend and Paresa organised the rest. We were free to add personalised touches to the wedding plans to suit the style we wanted. The massage at the resort spa was exceptional. So relaxing, I dozed off. The best value hosting a wedding at Paresa was the zero stress and overall luxury. We could fully enjoy the moments without any distractions to create lasting memories with our family and friends.

Dear Ruth, We were delighted to have you all as our guests over several days, and if we achieved a zero-stress wedding for you, then I think it was a success on all parts. So thank you for all your kind comments regarding the staff, venue, spa, comfort and food. We always share the guest's feedback with all staff and they will be happy to hear they made your special day that much more special. On behalf of all the Angels at Paresa, we wish you the very best in your marriage and hope that we will be able to welcome you back 'on a pure holiday' in the not-too-distant future. Thank you again to all your family who were a delight to host. Heavenly regards, Anthony Dupont, General Manager

Dear Guest Thank you for your review and that you mention that Paresa has to be visited once (at least) in your life. We try hard to offer a homely and private experience whilst also the best views in Phuket. Regarding the room service, it is true that we do not have from 11:00pm but we do have small snacks at the Front Office (noodle pots etc) for any late night requests. Have a Happy 2024 and we hope to see you again soon, Heavenly regards Anthony Dupont, General Manager

It’s taken too long to write this, probably because my husband and I love Paresa so much, we can hardly bear to think of it when we are not there! We enjoyed yet another magical stay at Paresa, overcome by the beauty, hospitality, quality and care that we always find at Paresa. It truly is like coming home. The whole team made our stay an utter pleasure. We felt so taken care of during our stay, as always. A visit to Paresa is about tranquility, indulgence, great food and drink, soaking up the incredible views and taking time out. Enjoy a sparkling wine with breakfast, read, swim and relax in your incredible room and private pool, watch the sun set at the stunning restaurant, indulge in a luxurious spa session. Paradise. Special thanks to Anthony for his warm reception and stewardship of us throughout our stay and to Kaew for her wonderful service. And to the whole team of Angels, including Katie, Pui, Piano, Bee, Wit, Beer, Plannin, Coco, Pep and Flame. Thank you for giving us a little piece of paradise every time we stay. Incredible food, joyous drinks, attentive service, and a location that can’t be beat, for us, Paresa is truly the definition of bliss. Until our next visit – 2024 we’re coming back!

We really enjoyed our stay at the resort, we enjoyed the room service food and breakfast especially. The pool villa has really great interior and views but there are minor things that could be improved/lacking: TV size/quality, not having bath salts or bath oils etc for the bath tub.

Dear Guest Thank you for your review and survey to which I have also replied, and this the 5* review. The TV signal quality is not good at the moment, and we are changing the supplier next month but for the bath we do provide salts so please let me review what happened here as you should have daily bath salts put on your bathtub. Thanks for brining this to my attention. We hope to see you again and please let me wish you a spcial Happy New Year as the last review of 2023! Heavenly regards, Anthony Dupont, General Manager

We loved our stay at the Paresa Resort. Our ocean view suite was stunning: outdoor shower, our own private pool, large bathroom with everything looking out over the Andaman Sea - honestly so so beautiful. The property is on the side of a hill, so walking to your room takes a little bit of effort but they have buggies available to get back to your room or the restaurant if you need it. It’s a very intimate property - when we spent time each day at the main infinity pool, we were the only people there. In that sense maybe it’s a little quiet for some - my husband loved that, I could’ve used some music. The Talung Thai restaurant was delicious. We ate here multiple times for dinner and ordered food for lunch by the pool. Favorite dish was the Massaman Lamb and favorite cocktail was the Ginny. Pro-tip: if you’re too full for dessert, order the chocolate tart with salted caramel ice cream and have it delivered to your room an hour later. Worth it. The included breakfast every morning was also fantastic and on the day we had an early morning tour to Phi Phi, the hotel staff were kind enough to pack us breakfast boxes. One note about the hotel’s location - it’s not walkable to other restaurants, shopping, or the beach. They do have a shuttle to / from Kamala Beach a few times a day or you can easily order Grabs (Ubers) to anywhere else, but the Paresa is definitely secluded. Lastly, the resort’s staff is incredible - Ying, Fang, Beer, Hukwang, Flame - I wish I could remember everyone’s name because the entire Paresa team was so warm and helpful. 10/10.

Dear Guest Thank you for this very comprehensive and positive review, basically giving us the thumbs up 10/10. We have worked hard this year to increase standards and I am happy to say that this was achievable due to the team, our true software, the human element. Once we get that bit right the rest falls into place and being intimate, independent and a stand-alone, we have the ability to act and adapt quickly. I have considered a bit of music at the pool, but as you noticed our location is so quiet that the music would carry into a few villas and we may then have a complaint. But I may try it and see so thanks for reminding me again. Our team will be delighted to see their names on TA. We will have our final 'Angel of the Year' awards soon and all these names count towards the award! Thank you again and we hope you will have the chance to revisit us again in 2024. Heavenly regards, Anthony Dupont, General Manager
