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
Stayed in the Ocean view villa which had the most amazing facilities that are very well maintained. What really stands out though, is the team of Angels. Their service is immaculate and are always ready to help in any way!
As a review we only spent the day here for our daughters wedding. WOW what a special place... we had a mixed bag on the weather but the staff made the the day go smoothly and without a hitch... they looked after all our guests superbly. 5 star.
We had a very wonderful experience at Paresa! We love the cheerful and friendly service provided which made our stay so amazing. Special thanks and compliments to Ms Pathama Kanteetaw, Ms Pearl and Ms Frong. Monday 6 August 2018, 945am
Stayed for 2 nights. Spa not worth it at all. Actually giving 2 stars instead of 1 only because of the view from the cliff side rooms and the Diavolo restaurant. Otherwise, absolutely not worth it.
- Staff are always courteous and polite
- Diavolo Restaurant is OK but not great
- Poor amenities and customer service
- You wait forever for the buggy to come
You can get much better options in Phuket
Breathtaking is an understatement to describe how this resort can actually let you see and feel the heavens while you are alive. Heavens of all heavens as I call it, they live up to their name. I am a traveller and have been to many different places, apart from that I work on a cruise ship where customer service sets the bar for the hospitality industry. I am honestly amazed how this resort was crafted with elegance and minimalism hand-in-hand.
We are blessed to spend our honeymoon on this luxury resort. When our Angel met us at the airport, we were warmly welcomed and offered with cold towels, water and fresh fruit. From that moment we knew we are in great hands and up for a memorable getaway. From the airport pick-up, reception, buggy drivers, room attendant, restaurant staff and all the resort staff, They all deserved to be called ANGELS as they will craft your vacation and make it heavenly. A vacation that will forever be embed in your hearts. The service is 11/10, nothing is too much, from the surprises in the suite, the candle-lit tub, the decoration on the bed, the smiles of the waitstaff in the restaurant, the overflowing serving of breakfast and the graciously prepared lunch and dinner menus, all to make your vacation exceptional. shoutout to Khun Dear for being very attentive to us.
The resort facilities are built for 7 star facilities, the exclusive infinity pool in each villa to catch the most beautiful sunset in the entire Phuket. The Huge infinity pool that sparkles at night and the interior of the villa that will just make you relax and forget about any worries you have.
A vacation of a lifetime. A vacation to the heavens that no one thought exists. Surely worth recommending and experiencing and I will definitely return.
