Paresa Resort Phuket

Reviewed August 16, 2010

Set in the very quiet area behind Kamala bay, all rooms have a stunning view on the sea cliff and on the sunset.
Rooms are very spacious, with access to private or semi-private pool (depending on budget) very well equipped (expresso machine, I-pod and dock, wireless free high speed internet). Also a great larger pool available for all guests but always very quiet since most of the guests enjoy their private pool. Been told the spa is fabulous but haven't tried it.
Very nice brunch - with free flow of champagne - and excellent lunch/dinner a la carte.
Last but not least, their staff - or angels - do utmost to help you out and make your stay an unforgettable stay.

My wife and I have travelled quite a bit (to over 30 destinations over the past 3 years in 4 star or above) and I would say that this place takes the cake as to the best resort we have ever stayed at. We got a free upgrade to the Aqua room (with our own infinity pool) and didn't leave our room for the entire stay (other than to have dinner in the restaurant, which is exceptional). The rooms are immaculate and very spacious, service exceptional and the general experience was like that of a dream. The restaurant serves great thai food (Italian also) overlooking the Andaman sea. Each night there was a brilliant sunset. We also received a complimentary afternoon snack every day (e.g. sushi), which was a nice touch. We are depressed each time we think about Paresa - and its only been a week since we left - we just want to go back!. Amazing place and would jump at the chance to go again.

You already feel a sense of something spectular is waiting for you at Paresa as you travel along the winding road nicknamed 'million dollar road'.
You arrive at the lobby and walk down the stone staircase and announce your arrival at 'heaven' with a melodic 'gong'. Your angel opens the wooden gate to heaven and your visual senses go into overdrive...the view was spectacular.
We stayed in the Cielo Residence because we had 2 young children aged 2 and 5. It felt more like a home than a hotel but with a million dollar view of the Andaman sea from almost every angle. It was very big with separate living room and kitchen. The bathroom was stunning and had views to the ocean from the shower,bathtub and even toilet !!! The infinity pool was so inviting and my girls really enjoyed swimming in it. My wife loved the aromatic bathroom products and commented how shinning our kids hair was.
The restuarant was really well priced and their food was quite good.
Overall a very impressive resort in an equally impressive location that took 4 years in the making. We enjoyed it so much that we stayed there for 4 days and did not step outside the resort.

We stayed the Paresa Resort for 2 nights in August. The taxi drivers might have a bit of trouble finding the resort as it is quite far from the main road, but believe us it is worth the trouble. The staff provided impeccable service and made the stay extremely enjoyable. From the room (we stayed in 133 Talay Suite), we had a view of the cliffs and sea that we could even enjoy from the pool (there is a pool that is shared with 1 other unit). There is also an incredible public pool that is barely used that has an even better view, with beach chairs on the side. The restaurant also has great service and the food was quite decent at a reasonable price. We highly recommend staying at the Paresa if you have the opportunity. We will definitely be going back!

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.
