“True to its name: Paradise”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

This resort has been managed by Swiss professionals for years which guarantees efficiency, cleanliness, friendliness and good food. I have never been disappointed and the fact that a large portion of the patrons are coming back again and again speaks for itself. Its location direct on the fine sandy beach and nestled in a beautiful garden with two swimming pools is truly romantic.Whereas the Italian restaurant "Roma" has been closed some time ago, the other restaurant offers a vast variety of Thai and Western dishes. Every night there is a special theme with different menus and some show/music. The hotel offers free WiFi in all areas as well as a free shuttle bus for its guests to nearby Bophut and Chaweng Beaches from afternoon to late night. Unfortunately most of the rooms have seen better days and badly need a facelift.

Room Tip: The recently renovated Maenam Suites near the pool are the best within the Resort.

If you are thinking of staying here don't think any longer. Book and enjoy a wonderful resort. The welcome was the best we have ever had. The staff are second to none. Nothing is too much trouble. Great food and the selection of drinks is vast. We stayed on an A.I basis and definitely worth every penny. Our room (502) was really good, clean and had everything we required. Although some people have mentioned a poor beach but really there is nothing to complain about. It is swept every morning. The sea is like stepping into a warm bath. Wonderful views etc. Can't praise this resort enough. We stayed with a group of 20 people. There wasn't one complaint about anything from anyone. We all agreed the clue is in the name. Paradise.

Dear MANSOURL

The management of Paradise has acknowledged you comment regarding your stay with us and regrets that you could not enjoy your stay at all.

We belief the new posted comments and the few past once are offering a more clear picture of what we offer at Paradise.

We are not above 5-Star Dubai standard and suggest that you book into a proper 5-Star property if you consider to travel again.

This was probably the best holiday experience I have ever had; the setting is superb and peaceful. Its staff are totally focused on the guests and it has nothing to do with "getting tips" as suggested in other reviews.Yes, the hotel appears "dated" but that adds to its charm and the food is excellent; the service when dining made you feel so relaxed and I am glad that we went for the All Inclusive package. There is a Pool Bar; the barman, Liam, was really good at making guests feel relaxed and kept us well topped up with drinks in the evening. The vegetation in the grounds is extremely lush with lots of wildlife; in the mornings the Dawn Chorus is amzing. We are definitely going to go back next year but for 10 nights as 6 is not long enough to get to the right chill level.

Room Tip: Have one spa treatment a day! Excellent value and so relaxing!!

Very quiet, but food excellent. We enjoy seafood, & it was available in some form at each meal.
The barbecue steaks & lamb were super.
Staff very friendly, in both the restaurant & the bars. Nothing was too much trouble. Possibly the most pleasant people we have met on all our trips.
The beach was a little disappointing in that we were unable to walk along it for a great distance. There were many ruined houses & huts along the beach at one point.
Our room 501, was on the ground floor. It was in a shaded location,surrounded by bushes & trees, which attracted an interesting selection of bird life.Hotel gardeners appeared to be working all the time keeping the area clean & tidy. The room was clean & the bed comfortable. The toilet & bathing area were fine but needed a little tlc..
I would have no hesitation in returning to this hotel at a future date.

Thank you for your comment on TripAdvisor.

We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Paradise and we would like to thank you for the nice comments to all our staff.
We fully understand your comment regarding the beach. Beaches are all public and therefore we are not allowed to do much. Regarding the ruined houses and the distroied wall close to our property we will try to negotioat with the owners of this part to clean in up. Sadly not much of a chance to get them understanding how important this would be for us and our guests.

We appreciate that you recommend our hotel on TripAdvisor and hope to welcome you at Paradise Beach Resort soon again.

We have stayed here on four occasions and we have been well impressed each time. From the complimentary pick up at the airport to the good food, spotless accommodation and friendly staff it is hard to find anything to complain about. The property overlooks a quiet stretch of Mae Nam beach. It is hidden away from the main road and while one reviewer negatively commented that it is down a small road with several bends, we think that is a major attraction as you get away from the hubub of the main road. The hotel provides a free shuttle to & from Chawing every hour and this will also drop off & pick up at Bo Phut Fishermans village. So you have peace & quiet with access to the madness of Chaweng if you feel up to it. The breakfast offering is extensive and the dinner menu is excellent. When we stay there we normally eat in the hotel restaurant every 2nd or 3rd evening and we are never disappointed. Full marks to Daniel & his staff. We look forward to our fifth visit!
