“Fantastic view !!!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Just returned from a 4 day trip in Phuket staying at the Paresa. Glad that our choice of accommodation lives up to our expectations. We felt very welcomed at the reception, with subtle thoughtful gestures as such a cup of cool tea and refreshing towel on arrival to perk us up after the nearly 45 min journey from the airport. Our room ( Aqua pool suite) was located high enough to enable us to get a good view of the Andaman ocean yet still near enough to the lobby block such that we can reach it in a few minutes of walking. As the resort was built on cliff to enable each room to have an ocean view, it is understandably that one will need to climb stairs or walk upslope to go to the lobby building for meals etc. thankfully they do provide buggies to shuttle you to and from your room.
The private infinity pool with ocean view is the main reason why we chose Paresa. As mentioned by other reviewers, the experience of being in the pool with your beloved one by your side and watching the tranquil ocean as the sun sets, with the distant sound of the waves splashing against the rocks at the cliff bottom, makes you feel like you are in paradise. :)
The rooms are well equipped with all modern amenities. We like the bathtub overlooking the pool and ocean as well as the outdoor shower area. Service including housekeeping was very good and we are greeted with a smile every time we meet any Angels. ( service staff) . Food at breakfast was good, with a choice of a main course from nearly 20 choices. Juices at bf are all freshly squeezed and an interesting shoot of the day is available ( varies daily through different concoction of fruits) to get you going.
Overall an excellent and unforgettable experience for me and wifey -- feels like honeymoon again despite 14 yrs of marriage. :)

Room Tip: Choose aqua pool suites ending with digit 1 if possible as this will mean you are on the upper unit...

Thank you very much for the details and well balanced review, it appears crystal clear that you have both had a wonderful stay and carried home many memories from Paresa. Having the Angels ticked all the right notes during the recent stay we all genuinely hope to see you back in Heaven in the not so distant future, now that you know that the peaceful surroundings, the well appointed and comfortable accommodations and the service provided throughout the resort makes Paresa the perfect address to spend a well deserved break with your loved one.

Didnt get the hotel room type that i booked. Lame reason of it being under maintenance (painting job) Good intention for upgrading us to bigger villa. But it just doesnt suit us. Wasted so much time. Didnt have buggie to send us to our villa (lame excuse being the buggies were busy). The villa and rooms are too dark at night. Not so great interior design. NO FRIDGE NO CUPS in room to drink our wine.

Room Tip: only the room with spa is good (i booked but i was given something else)

We are happy to read that our goodwill intention to provide a complimentary upgrade faced with a technical inconvenience in the room category originally booked has been well appreciated at your end. We regret reading that the interior design has not encountered your taste and also resent the fact that you have not contacted an Angel to have additional glasses delivered to your Cielo Residence, which comes fully equipped with a full size fridge and separate wine cellar, in addition to a whole array of glassware. The Angels hope you will soon be able to return to the Heaven of all Heavens and experience an unforgettable stay in one of five exclusive Dima Spa Pool Suites.

I am writing this review as i sit by the infinity pool in heaven. We have been here now for 5 nights and got 5 nights remaining, leaving on 21st May 2014. We are in room 261 which is incredible... i have got a few points i would like to make regarding previous reviews...

The building next to the hotel in no way has any affect on your stay. Our room has a full view of this and we have hardly heard a single noise... the view is amazing with or without building work.

Also people have said that the staff are rude.... the hotel refer to them as angels, of any angels have been rude to anyone maybe the problem lies with the guest. Every single angel has the biggest smile and will always say hello and with you a good day.... staff are amazing which makes this a special place!!!!!

We loved that on check in you get to choose the soap from different scents which was a great idea and we loved our lemongrass and coconut soaps. All the little details the hotel has done are the little things that we appreciate.

BEST BREAKFAST EVER HAD ON A HOLIDAY!!!!

All together we are loving our stay in Paresa hotel and are not looking forward to leaving.

THANK YOU :)

We stayed two nights in the Aqua Suite at Paresa. Our experience is more on the negative side as this hotel resort lacks some maintenance.

lets start with the Cons:
Plumbing issues in our room across the two days, it got fixed but it happened again the next day. Water that came out of the taps and shower were brown. Not sure if this is because of the plumbing issue? Cost us 700baht to taxi to and from the resort. The road leading up to the resort needs fixing was quite dangerous.

Pros: Clean room, nice staff, good breakfast spread.

We thank you for the review and for the stay, we value our customer’s feedback as it provides us different perspectives on our resort’s operations. Please accept our apologies for the technical inconveniences experienced during your stay, our maintenance team has indeed spared no efforts to fix the issues as quickly as possible trying to avoid any discomfort to our guests. Paresa is located in one of the most serene locations on Phuket’s west coast to offer its guests peaceful surroundings for a relaxing atmosphere to forget about it all. We are well aware of the conditions of the public road leading to the resort, regrettably such issue is beyond our direct control nonetheless Paresa actively seek the support of the competent authorities to reach a definitive solution to this issue.

I stayed at the Paresa last weekend. The hotel is definately one of the best in Phuket and would compare with some leading luxury beach resorts in the world.

Our villa had its own private plunge pool with a fabulous ocean view.

The service is what made our stay memorable. The staff lived up to all expectations.

The food was high quality.

A definite upper end 5 star resort.

Room Tip: Cliff pool villa is the way to go

We visited the Paresa in April to celebrate my birthday. Before we arrived, I was concerned about the construction and requested a room that did not overlook this. Our room, 242 was perfect, beautiful view and the construction was obscured by trees. The pools in the Aqua rooms are much bigger than I'd expected and we dipped in from morning to late at night. I would agree that they could be cleaned during your stay but they provide a net for fishing out leaves.We hardly heard any noise all week and needn't have worried. The hotel is stunning, ignore the nitpickers who complained about water stains, it looks perfectly natural and the resort blends into the hill side really well.. Every single member of staff were lovely and the degree of attention was just right. Breakfast was very pleasant, smoothies of the day and a selection of hot and cold dishes. We ate both Italian and Thai, all delicious. Yes, there was a wedding but to be expected in such a beautiful place. We ate in their cooking school and enjoyed complimentary fizz, for the 'inconvenience'. During our stay we visited the beach club, and Skyla's beach hut is not to be missed- cool, shady and great vibe. If you order food, try the hut behind the beach club- best food we had all week. We also had the infinity dinner which is a night we will never forget. We would have liked to venture to other, quieter beaches where there may have been completely clear sea (Kamala's waters have a few carrier bags etc floating in the water) but it was just so hot so we stayed put. We visited James Bond Island but was too touristy and busy so avoid in peak times. Overall we had a brilliant time and for the money we paid £160 per night on Secret Escapes, it was outstanding. Thank you Paresa

Thanks for the very kind review of your holiday at Paresa, it is celestial music to all Angels’ ears! Yet another great suggestion from our partner Secret Escapes led to a truly enjoyable holiday in sunny Phuket. It is a fact that Mother Nature assists greatly in casting a screen over the neighboring construction site, happy to read that nothing disturbed your peace and have appreciated the perfect integration of Paresa in its tropical backdrop. Thank you for profiting from the numerous culinary experiences including the Infinity Romantic Dinner and being accommodated in reason of a wedding function being held at Paresa. Skyla Beach House is also a great spot for a drink or two on the northern end of Kamala beach, steps away from Paresa’s own Beach Club, and James Bond island is a popular and fascinating daytrip excursion we are glad to recommend. It has been a pleasure having you as our valued guest during the recent celebratory trip for your birthday, we all look forward to welcome you back real soon.

Paresa was exactly what we needed: a gorgeous, warm hotel with fantastic views and friendly staff.

We stayed in an Aqua suite, which was spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The private pool was a pure joy and watching the sunset from there sipping a glass of wine was perfection! The bathtub overlooking the pool was a nice touch too!

In-room dining was very quick and great. As a breakfast person, I was very please with the breakfast spread: variety, good quality + a dish from the menu. Needless to say, I needed to be rolled out of the restaurant after! Delicious!

Though the hotel doesn't have a beach (which makes sense since it's cliff-side) there is a shuttle that takes guests to the nearby Kamala beach, which is super convenient.

In a nutshell, a great weekend. Our only regret is not staying long enough...

A long anticipated week-end to get away from reality.. the need of feeling disconnected from the real world.. the search for your very own cocoon of peace and tranquility ends on Kamala’s famous Millionaire Mile, where Paresa lays undisturbed perfectly nestled between the tropical forest and steep cliff. It is such a pleasure to read about the delicious food sampled, the Aqua Pool Suite with private pool to cherish unforgettable moments with your loved one. Make sure to carve some additional time out of your busy schedules when planning the next visit to Heaven, the Angels look forward to have you back shortly.
