Paresa Resort Phuket

Reviewed 15 January 2013

My husband and I stayed at Paresa for 4 days on the way home from our European honeymoon. The hope was to "decompress" after busy days exploring northern Europe. Paresa did not disappoint. First, our flight from Bangkok had to turn around mid flight due to a problem with the plane. We therefore landed in Phuket 5 hours later then was scheduled. There was no problem, the driver was waiting for us at the correct time with much appreciated cold bottles of water. We were met with cold lemon grass tea and towels when we arrived. We stayed in a cliff villa, which I very much recommend. The view was amazing. The pool was pristine. The villa was large with one of the most comfortable king size beds I've ever slept in. The food (although perhaps slightly expensive for Thailand standards) was delicious. Breakfast (which was included) was a la carte as well as buffet selections with fresh juice blends daily. We also indulged in their special pool side dinner which took place at the main pool after sunset. It was very romantic, we had a lovely time. It is VERY secluded. We often felt like the only people on the resort. The spa was divine (we had a couples massage). I was shocked to read that some people had issues with service, the service we received was impeccable apart from our final day. My only suggestion would be if you allow the front desk to schedule your transfer to the airport that you request they move it an hour before the recommended time. We called several times, however, no one came to drive us and we left for the airport 45 minutes behind schedule which lead to a terribly unsafe and frightening drive to the airport so that we did not miss the flight. This was, however, not enough to wreck our amazing time. The only down side would be if you were hoping to explore the local beaches/towns this is perhaps not the best place to stay as Kamala beach isn't necessarily the best beach around. The resort is very secluded and not included for pickup from some tour companies. You can, however, book tours directly through the concierge at the hotel. We found their prices to be comparable. But once you're in heaven why leave? The price is slightly high, but in our opinion was worth every penny.

Thank you for your review and comments. I'm glad to hear you had a good Honeymoon and were able to spend the last few days of it with us! The Infinity Dinner is a really romantic experience and great for honeymooners!

Unfortunate to hear about the airport transfer situation but a follow up has been made. I hope you both got home safely and all the best for the New Year.

Kind Regards
Emma

Our third time at Paresa, second time over Christmas.
Our family of 5, shared 2 talay suites, which has a connecting infinity pool.
We never get tired of the views and to watch the sunsets, the restaurant does an excellent job offering a wonderful breakfast and something for everyone's taste between the thai and italian dinner menu.
But best of all is the staff, who are so plentiful, caring and makes us feel so much at home.

We arrived to Paressa after 10 hour flight , driving trow some town's uncharacteristic sightseeng. Me and my wife kind of tired and skeptical . Upon arrival things changed . It was from the first step clear that we haven't make mistake . Caring , soothing , wellbeeing , easy going . If you are in the middle of jam , life crisys or over stressed . Than Paresa your plase . First you do not hear anyone , anyting , only wind . No loud room cleanning ... nothing . Its like your only . You are the only one here . The only chance to see someone its at restorant or bar . Very very tranquele. Breakfast fantastic .. Very California .. wheat grass shots , up to 10 different fresh squezed juices , home made peanut butter , home made maffins , and a view to kill for .. Spa wonderfull . NO KIDS ))!! There are some minuses : 1. There is no beach ( but transfer by shuttle to near beach , but we found it not clean ) . For hotel that level neccesary to have better option ( for example Bang Tao Beach ) , Dinner we founded a bit of limited options . And it seamed chef never been on duty at night time . Overall rating 4. Got overstressed , than PARESA for you .

Pros:
1. rooms are beautiful (we had aqua pool villa which i can recommend)
2. amazing views on the ocean
3. stunning infinity pool
4. good spa amenities & treatments

Con:
1. the service - there is no service
we had read the other complaints about bad service prior to our booking but thought if we keep expectations low it would be ok. unfortunately we ended up being so disappointed and upset that it spoilt our 3 days stay.
2. food is rather average - if it arrives at all
3. no atmosphere / charme of the property (dark corridors, very little lighting in the evening, not a single flower,...) and no good karma
4. staff seems unhappy

Room Tip: any pool villa will be beautiful

Thank you for your review and comments! I'm glad you made the most of what the pool's at Paresa have to offer, along with the Spa.

In response to your comments I would just like to say that we do incorporate a lot of training into the staffs schedules to make sure the service is always improving in order to maximize guest satisfaction and the minimal use of lights in certain places is to add to the tranquil and peaceful element of Paresa.

I hope you enjoyed your stay!

Kind Regards

Stayed here on my first overseas trip with my girlfriend. Certainly impressed! Magnificent position and superb rooms. I got a pretty good deal which helped to make it even more enjoyable. Would recommend hiring a scooter to make the restaurants and bars of Kamala more accessible.
