“Great place for a full relax vacation”
Reviewed August 4, 2010

We stayed at Paresa 10 nights starting from new year's eve. The property is well maintained and designed, and offers a full range of services for a full relax vacation. The Paresa is located on a cliff that gives to all the guest a stunning view, especially at dawn. It will be amazing enjoying the view with a good drink from your own in villa private pool. Mind that the hotel is quite far from the village of Kamala: forget to reach it by foot, a taxi or a (free) shuttle bus ride will be absolutely necessary. If what you're looking for is an hotel to live the Phuket nightlife, I strongly suggest you to head somewhere else.

The rooms are very very spacious, and most of them comes with a small private pool. I strongly suggest to invest some money more to get one of this rooms: are the real plus of the hotel. The bathroom is bigger than you can expect, with two separate sinks, bathtub in front of a big windows overlooking the sea, and two showers: indoor and outdoor.

The staff (called "Angels") is very kind - as Thai tradition - ad will make every possible effort to meet your needs. Don't hesitate to ask also for strange or uncommon wishes: they're very well trained and will arrange everything possible for you.

Take care: the comfort of the hotel will try to convince you to stay there all day! Don't fall in the trap, leave your terrace and private pool sometimes, and take a ride around Phuket to discover this amazing isle!

We enjoyed our stay at Paresa very much indeed, the staff were friendly, the rooms were excellent and the view from the hotel was breath-taking. We will definitely be returning there on our next trip to Phuket. Paresa is exactly what one might desire as a holiday destination. We also loved the numerous activities the hotel had to offer. The personal trainer from the fitness centre was helpful and his lessons were very enjoyable. The chef who taught the cooking classes was also an amazing cook and gave us a fun and exciting lesson.

It located on the very special -unique & private location ,up on the quite & peaceful cliff .

With an outstanding ,yet modern - but not so "Cold" atmoshere of decoration and surrounding ,you'll feel like in the middle of somewhere that is absolutely "Private & Hide Away" with full of facilites ,such as Spa ,Fitness ,Libary ,Cooking School and of course a wonderful private restaurant where serving a fantastic Italian & Thai Fusion Foods.

I was there for almost a week without need to go out anywhere eles ,except I was dreaming about to take to boat trip out to the other small islands around which I'd put into my nrxt trip plan and dreaming for that ,hopefully it will be sometime soon.

I booked directly with the hotel to get an advantage of the low season rates. I had a fantastic suite, larger than 100sqm, with a living and dining pavilion - a dining table to seat ten people, a swimming pool with outdoor deck, and a large full function kitchen equipped with full sized fridge and a wine cellar!! There was a guest restroom in the living area (apart from two, his and hers, in my bedroom). The next villa was quite a distance away. It was perfect for a bachalor's party!!

Paresa is in great location, only 15 minutes to both Surin beach, for choices of restaurant and Patong in opposite direction for a fun night out. They provide daily complimentary transport to the nearby Kamala beach. I actually prefer staying at the resort main pool or my own pool to stay away from the crowd. The Thai and Italian food at the resort are the best. I give Paresa two thumps up and will certainly return.

We had an incredible stay. Amazing everything. I would definitely recommend staying at the Paresa. The service was impeccable. Any negative reviews should most likely be ignored or read very carefully.
