Built into the Kamala cliffs and looking out toward the sea, Paresa Resort blends so well into the surroundings it feels like a secret sanctuary. The architecture, inspired by traditional southern Thai homes, features authentic arts and crafts throughout. Native wood floors and local stone contrast with tech-savvy touches such as touchscreen lighting and high-quality audio in the living areas and terrace — even the pool.
Bed and Bath
Cliffside luxury continues in the 49 contemporary guestrooms and private villas, each of which has a spacious veranda and 270-degree sunset views. Some come with their own private infinity pool or plunge pool. All have indoor and outdoor showers, and the Dima Spa Suite has its own private steam room. Aqua Suites are an enormous 1,600 square feet, while the Cielo Residences are like private manors, at a mighty 7,100 square feet, and come with 24-hour butler service.
Paresa’s three restaurants, all with ocean views (of course), match the accommodations in wow factor. Diavolo serves up Italian fusion dishes, Talung Thai is an alfresco spot high atop the cliffs, and Recipe is a wonderfully intimate private dining room that hosts traditional Thai cooking classes and private dinner parties. You can stretch out on a lounger by the impressive infinity pool (or down at the Beach Club) and watch the sun set over the Andaman Sea, or indulge in a treatment on a private balcony at the spa.
How to Get There
I had the pleasure of staying at Paresa in early April with my mother for 4 days and we will certainly be back. Service was warm and friendly with every need or want catered for - for example my mother couldn't handle walking up the hill and the staff always sent a buggy on call to take us wherever we needed to go. Little thoughtful touched like reserving the best table in the restaurant for dinner on our last night was also much appreciated.
A plus point for us was the breakfast buffet which had a good selection of both Thai and international main options made to order. Needless to say, we both gained some weight.
Location wise, the hotel isn't the most central, but for a luxurious stay with breathtaking views, it is certainly well worth it.
My room is Spa Pool Suite. This is perfect one if you would like to getaway from busy life. So private. Spa in your room with nature is very nice. Also the surrounding pool, the fantastic and romantic view. The room may not see the sunset but you can view it at the Galleria. I took my GF here for her vacay and she definitely love it. If you would like to have a romantic trip with your love one, this place is the must.
Also the chef at restaurant / and all staffs took great care for my food allergy. Definitely 6 stars. And Worth your money.
Thoroughly enjoyed a 3 day weekend at the Paresa Resort in Phuket in a spa pool villa overlooking the Andaman Sea .Daily massages , yoga with Ma’am , a wonderful teacher. Beautiful views from the restaurant, excellent food and service. Romantic setting , very relaxing, highly recommended.
Stayed there 2 nights. Breakfast was excellent, the views and the infinity pool magnificent, bathroom design that I wish to have in my home :) Taxi required to get to the town. Book directly with the resort to get the best rate!
The resort overall is good but still have improvement, such as the breakfast taste so bad! and we got broken night-gown, and also their services response so slow.
However, we live in the cliff side villa, the view is spectacular, you can see the sunset everyday, the vibe is quiet, relax, the restaurant view is also mind-blowing, very romantic, although a bit windy, but they have 50% off for happy hour, its very pleasant deal with such a great view!
Its a romantic place for couple overall!! Recommended anyway.
