Paresa truly lives up to its name "Heaven of all Heavens".
It was our honeymoon trip and the 3 nights stay at Paresa was a surprise for my wife.
Location of the resort is a little away from the main city, which is the beauty of it. The staffs were very friendly and welcoming.
As we arrived my wife was screaming with joy seeing the resort and our room.
I chose the Cliff Pool Villa for the stay (villa 307). The view from the private pool is amazing with no trees distracting the sunset view. The villa also has a bathtub facing the beautiful Kamala beach. Watching the sunset from the bathtub or the private pool with a drink is an experience itself.
The buffet/ ala carte breakfast is exceptional.
Once you are here, you would hardly feel like stepping out from the resort. Allow yourself to take it slow, relax and witness the beautiful Asian sunsets. This will surely rejuvenate you.
If you are a nature lover who appreciates nature and all things that come along with it, surely you would love this luxury experience so close to nature.

Paresa, that's the word for heaven, and it's exactly that. Most of the staff are dressed in white representing angels, and they are nothing was to hard for them. We went to bed looking at a magical view of our own pool looking out to sea. Woke up to a magical view of the sunrise. Having our meals at the restaurant, once again not only was the view breathtaking the food was so delicious. If you're looking for a place to chill and relax, this is it. We meet the manager David. You can tell he takes pride in his job because every thing was well kept, clean and the staff are happy and smiling. Thank you to all at Paresa Resort for making our stay unforgettable.

We were married at Paresa last year and it was absolutely magical. We couldn't have wished for a more perfect wedding and our guests were blown away by the whole event- the food, set up, and most especially the views and the spectacular sunset we were fortunate enough to have. The wedding package was incredible and having a wedding planner included made the whole process so incredibly easy- especially as we organised it all off-site!

We only stayed a few nights as we headed to Khao Lak afterwards but our time there was very enjoyable. We had a few glitches with our room but management were apologetic and rectified matters. We returned for our anniversary and this time stayed for a week. We couldn't have wished for better customer service, or a better holiday overall. We stayed in a cliff pool villa and it was absolutely spectacular. The villa was so private and we really felt like we were in our own little oasis. It had everything we needed - great coffee, beautiful toiletries, plenty of drinking water, well stocked beverages, indoor and outdoor shower, beautiful big bath (which was filled for our arrival) all with spectacular ocean views, and also a bluetooth speaker in the room.

The room attendance was also fantastic. Little treats left on the bed, nightly turn-down service, and our requests were met promptly. Our room attendant Nid was so lovely and left our room immaculate each day and even took the time to arrange all our things in the room so beautifully too. The views are incredible and unforgettable- what a sight to wake up to each morning!

Every member of staff we encountered were extremely friendly and couldn't do more for us. All the staff made us feel so special from the moment we walked in to the moment they closed the door of our cab to the airport. The assistant general manager Kaew (Pathama) also took great care of us, introducing herself personally and tended to any requests we had immediately. She couldn't have been more helpful or accomodating.
The food at the restaurant was superb. Dining costs more than local thai restaurants but it is faultless. They offered a Thai menu, a mediterranean including tapas menu. We chose from all the menus during our stay and each was amazing. The tapas was fantastic. The breakfast is the best we've had and has everything you could want - mostly all made fresh and to order too. Make sure you try the french toast and banana bread - absolutely delicious and quite possibly the best banana bread we've ever tasted.

We used the gym every day which was well equipped, immaculate and offered the best views you could ever wish for whilst working out (180 degrees of ocean views)!
The resort it is secluded from the rest of Kamala which only adds to the tranquility. It makes it really feel like a private haven away from the rest of the world (and there's complimentary shuttles to town several times a day so it wasnt an issue for us).

Exceptional resort, exceptional views, exceptional service. Incredible.

Room Tip: Any villa!

From the moment we arrived, we truly felt like we had stepped into the "heaven of all heavens". True to it's name, we were treated with 5 star service, stayed in beautiful accommodations, and got to stare at the most stunning views from any angle. My husband and I visited Paresa for 4 nights during our honeymoon throughout Thailand. After a cliffside ride on a golf cart, we arrived at our ocean pool villa and it was incredible. We could've spent weeks on end at the private pool and the main pool, which is stunning. The breakfast and dinner at the restaurants was excellent (we ate there every morning and 3 of the 4 nights there). They have a lot of private dining options as well. The staff everywhere was wonderful. I simply cannot say enough great things about this resort... you will not want to leave!!!

It is a very nice hotel. The only thing it is quite far away from main attractions. You have to request for a taxi each time. The front desk and the staff at the restaurant were excellent. It does not have excess to beach directly but has a excellent view.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent.
