"天国のような場所"
最高のホテルステイとなりました。 カップルでの利用でしたが、部屋にプールもついており、本当にのんびりとすることのできるホテルでした。 部屋のプールだけでなく、ゲスト共有のインフィニティプールも静かで最高の場所です。 レストランも朝・夜ともに素晴らしい味の料理を提供してくださり、文句なしです。

"푸켓 최고의 풀빌라"
지난달에 와이프랑 휴가차 다녀왔습니다. 우선 한마디로 표현하자면 푸켓 최고의 숙소가 아닐까 싶네요. 제가 머물렀던 방은 씨엘로타입인데 너무 넓어 둘이 쓰기에는 조금 아깝더라구요^^; 가족단위 보다는 연인끼리 오기에 더 좋을 것 같단 생각이 드네요. 그리고 마지막으로 식당뷰가 기가 막힙니다. 탁트인 바다가 보이는 식당에서 먹는 음식맛은 평생 잊을수 없을 것 같습니다. 다만 아쉬웠던점이 시내와 거리가 제법 멀어서 오래 있으 실 분들은 정실론에서 장봐서 가셔서 직접 음식 만들어 먹을 수도 있습니다. 참고 하세요

帕瑞莎是我目前去过最爱的酒店,每个人的服务都是那么的好,房间更是舒适,景色美丽,面对房间内的无边泳池和无尽的大海,仿佛把一切烦恼都甩在了脑后,太美了,一定还会再去的,并且介绍更多的朋友去的。虽然酒店比较偏远,附近配套设施不多,但如果去的话就要打算在酒店呆上一两天,享受那无敌海景。不然就浪费了。

"真的是完美的体验!!!!!!!奢华之选~~~~~~~"
我们入住的是cielo residence 在hotels上订了3晚~超值啊!偌大的660平米的房间只有我和男朋友一起住 真的太美了~~景色让你美到忘掉一切!房间室外就拥有一个超大的无边泳池~美不胜收 当然酒店的无边泳池是最棒的!也是我在泰国14天之行住过的所有酒店中景色最棒的!我们住的房间很大有厨房有专门用餐的地方~可以免费让酒店送餐到房间 和去餐厅吃是一样的~我们入住期间可以说是最为尊贵的客人也不过:男朋友第二天就生病了 因为前一天pp岛一日游淋了雨 酒店的人帮忙买了各种药回来 十分关心我们的情况 包括我也是生理期来了 还有人专门送来了急救物品~~~太贴心了!送餐的小伙子们任劳任怨 抬着那么多食物跑上跑下 收盘子也很及时~我们最后一天下午去餐厅喝酒 员工一听我们是111房间的立刻送上了一封慰问信 并且过了一会儿酒店经理出现了 特意来看我们 问我们身体是否还好 住的是否舒适 和旁边的餐厅大叔聊的也十分开心 还给我们的行程提了很棒的建议 帮我们买药的angel还主动问我们飞机的事情并帮我们订了去机场的taxi 总之服务太到位了!paresa的服务不是盖的 他们不是为了收小费或是自己的利益才这样贴心的服务你 而是发自内心的 这一点你可以通过他们脸上的微笑和一举一动来观察出来~要说缺点的话:1.660平米的空间可以再好好调整一下让使用率更高更科学比如在中间吃饭的屋子里再装一台电视要不晚上没有美景的话未免显得冷清~2.酒店在山上 出行确实略有不便 到巴东taxi是700泰铢 还算可以接受 也是因为在山上 所以酒店没有自己的沙滩 不能下海 不过美景以及无边泳池足以弥补这一切~~~~对了 因为房间设计的原因 在外面的部分会有蚊虫 但这是无法避免的 本来我很怕虫子的尤其是蚂蚁啊蛾子啊什么的 但是来到paresa反而爱上了它门~还在院子里看到了蚂蚁搬蝴蝶的尸体~很可爱!把房间打通的话有时会有小鸟来院子里落脚 还能看到海鸥划过天际~生态真的很好!是不吓人的那种!哎呀说了好多啊~因为paresa的美好真的是无法诉说完整 大家一定要去住!!!!!其实180平的大泳池套房就已经很好了 要是想活动的更自由那就住我们这种 一定不会让你失望!

アクアプールヴィラに泊まりました。プライベートプールからはsansetが見れて、ベットも大きかったし、とても快適でした。立地はどちらかというと山奥にあり、繁華街からは離れていましたが、それを了承したうえでの宿泊だったので気になりませんでした。ご飯もホテルのレストランがおいしかったので、町に出て何かを食べようという気にはなりませんでした。ホテルのスタッフもみんな親切でした。すごくいい時間を過ごせました。大満足です!

"非常棒的酒店,一流海景"
住过了普吉好多家5星的pool villa, Paresa绝对是可以排在前几位的.海景非常棒,住在pool villa里很安静,泡在泳池里,静静享受阳光,海景,微风。kamala沙滩人也很少,沙子比较粗糙,适于晒太阳和冲浪。酒店在距离Kamala海滩5公里的山上,每两小时有一班shuttle bus去海滩和kamala town,错过只能坐local taxi上下山,单程300。房间尽量选择海拔高的房间,越高景色越好。早餐每人限点一份,味道不错,同时也提供免费的面包和果汁,牛奶之类的。晚饭基本都在酒店,去kamala town吃上下山不大方便。服务人员乐于助人,但是有2个问题,1是英语不够好,2是有时有疏漏。比如我要求下午2:15的shuttle bus从kamala town到酒店,但是等到2:25车也没来,眼看大雨就要降临,只能乘local taxi回酒店,向酒店服务人员反映了这个问题,他们也没什么回应。Tips: 盥洗室的灯总关需要用一个控制器激活,控制器挂在living room大门旁边的墙上,需要拿下来,拿到盥洗室灯总关的旁边去激活。。。据说是信号问题。。。传输不了那么远。。。

"절벽위에 위치한 풀빌라"
privacy를 위해 담장, 나무로 가려진 다른 풀빌라와 다르게 절벽위에 위치해있어 경관이 너무 좋았습니다. 2 가족이 함께 가서 Talay suites에 묵었는데 오히려 단독으로 사용하는 풀보다도 훨씬 더 컸던 것 같습니다. 유일한 아쉬움은 빠똥 시내까지 거리가 꽤 되고 주위에 레스토랑이나 놀거리가 없다는 거.. 그거 말고는 매우 만족스러웠습니다.

"nice view, warm service, bit remoted"
We went to Paresa with our 4 yrs old kid, stayed at their Aqua Villa. The good thing of this place is: - Excellent service, caring staffs - Nice view - Very big bathroom with a nice bathtub you can look through to the private pool - Very private place whereas you don't need to lower the curtain even when having a bath at the bathtub - Excellent restaurant, we tried the Thai food for room service, Ryan's six dishes and Breakfast. All above average - Excellent spa Bad thing: - the hotel located at the end of a cape in Kamala beach, it's quite isolated. You feel very tiring if you want to go out twice in a day. - the private pool isn't that big - if you want a better seaview, you will climb up and down a lot of slope with their golf car.

Hotel tres agreable avec une vue superbe sur la mer. Le personnel de l'hotel est tres pro.Quelques petits reproches concernat l'etat de notre chambre qui presentait quelques traces sur les murs, dommage pour un prix superieur a 300 euros la nuit. Cet hotel est parfait pour un sejour en couple mais a deconseiller aux familles avec jeunes enfants. Les travaux de construction a proximite de l'hotel ternissent un peu le paysage paradisiaque.

"wonderful sea view"
ソンクラーン中に2泊3日でアクアプールスイートに宿泊しました。周辺には何もありませんが、目の前に広がる海を見ながら専用プールで泳いだりlibraryで借りた映画を見たり小説を読んだりのんびり過ごすことができました。レストランはタイ料理とイタリアンとメニューが二つ用意されていましたが2泊すると少し飽きてしまいました。またスタッフに関しては、とても親切にしてくださるスタッフと冷たい感じのするスタッフと分かれました。SPAやマッサージへ行こうとしましたが非常に高かったため止めました。宿泊代は割と高い方だったと思いますが、この金額でこのくらいのサービスなのかなぁ、という印象でした。設備維持に費用がかかるからなのでしょうか。

"カップル向きの眺めが最高のホテル"
アクアプールに3泊しました。岸壁に立つホテルのため、海を望む景色は最高です。到着早々に冷蔵庫が冷えない?持ってきたDVDが映らない?部屋の電気がつかない?(スイッチの場所がわからなかっただけ)などもすぐに対応してくれました。部屋のプールに日陰がなく、夕方の数時間だけ利用し、ほとんどは、海からの風が心地良いインフィニティープールで過ごしました(4つあるデイベットは居心地が良いためか、朝からほぼ埋まっていました)。ホテル周辺に何もないため、静かに過ごしたい人は良いかもしれませんが、ホテルレストラン(1か所)以外で食事するには、車で移動しなければならないため、アクティブに活動したい人は不便です。唯一、カマラビーチまでは無料シャトルバス(1時間に1本、11時~16時頃までだったかな?)で移動できます。リクエストすれば、カマラビーチ途中のカマラタウン(ちょっとした買物やマッサージ可能)や途中にあるレストランの前で降ろしてくれ、帰りもリクエストすれば途中で乗せてくれます。ホテル施設内は崖にあるのに柵がなく、ロビーから部屋までは、かなり急な坂だったのでカップル向きかなと思います。レストランや飲み物代が高価な点以外、全てのホテルスタッフは笑顔で親切だったので、私は満足しました。

"時間に余裕があり、静かに過ごしたい人へ"
ホテル⇔空港の送迎あり。 片道40分の距離はあるがその間車窓から観光でき飽きることはなくホテルに到着。 チェックインを済ませホテル全体の案内(日本語は通じないため基本、英語) 眺望は最高、レストランからの景色も最高です。 部屋はゆったりできる作り、プライベートプール付でした。 カップル用なのかペアの洗面ボウル付きの部屋でした。 無料WIHIもサクサク使えて便利でした。 繁華街や近隣へはホテルからの無料送迎があるので有効利用してください。 それ以外は基本、タクシーの利用となります。 特に身体的理由がなければホテル内は自分の足での移動のため、階段、坂が急勾配なため、 体力のない人にはかなりきついです。 繁華街で深夜まで遊びたい人にはおすすめできません。 どちらかというと、ホテル内でゆっくりプライベートに過ごしたい人に向いています。

"Einfach ein Traum"
Das Hotel Paresa befindet sich an einer Hanglage etwas abseits von allen. Damit ist es perfekt geeignet für Personen, welche die Ruhe suchen. Die Zimmer sind ein Traum mit einem eigenen Pool. Insgesamt ist es einfach ein Traum dort den Urlaub zu verbringen. Falls man etwas negatives am Hotel suchen sollten, dann dass unser Zimmer erst zwischen 14 und 15 Uhr am Tag gereinigt wurde und um 18 Uhr schon der zweite Zimmerservice kam. Da hätten wir uns den ersten früher gewünscht.

Das Hotel liegt relativ ablegen und ist an den Berg gebaut dadurch aber sehr ruhig. Die Zimmer und teilweise die Villa-Pools oder Terrassen sind uneinsehbar. Wenn man möchte wird man von den angels in Golfcars durch die Anlage gefahren. Die Thaiküche fand ich sehr gut, das Frühstück für diese Preisklasse eher mässig aber absolut OK. Wellness absolut zu empfehlen. Würde wieder hinfahren!

"Relaxing and idyllic"
07/27/15 Julien B
We travelled to Paresa for a 2 nights stay and had a great time. The staff is very welcoming and always here to help. The room and the view were idyllic and everything is really quiet, all you can hear is animals and insects. The restaurant is great so there is no need to move away from the resort in the evening. We went on the early morning old Phuket Town and market excursion which I definitely recommend. A top hotel.

It was just a simply outstanding experience in Paresa. My wife and I stayed in a cliff pool villa. Every thing was clean, Breakfast and dinner was great, the staffs were great, even the buggy drivers were so kind enough to let us experience "Roller Coaster" ^^ (We asked indeed). Because we liked there so much, we cancelled a day trip and just spend time in the villa being lazy and relaxed. Tip) It is monsoon season there now. So, there are little mosquitoes. (not serious) Bring your Repellent and Itch cream. But, please do not complain for mosquitoes because you are there in nature in hot monsoon season. I recommend here for someone who are seeking for relaxation and peace. Honeymooner or loner?

"Lovely resort, magnificent views"
07/15/15 Chayan V Singapore, Singapore
We travelled with another couple and booked the adjoining Talay Pool Suites. The rooms share a common infinity pool which is great for couples travelling together. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, a lot of attention has been put into the little details like the room amenities. Room decor was tasteful though not inspired, I thought, but that is just my personal preference. Service was excellent overall. The pool and terrace area are not totally private, being visible from other parts of the hotel, though at a distance. The views from the room and terrace out to the infinity pool and sea are nothing short of spectacular at any time of day. A great place to stay in Phuket for a romantic getaway.

My husband and I had the opportunity to hold our wedding at Paresa. It was such a wonderful experience for the both of us. Khun Ting assisted us in the execution of our ideas and plans. She was always efficient with attending to our queries and beyond helpful in trying to meet our needs and requests. Due to the professionalism of the staff at Paresa, we were able to plan our wedding from abroad without needing to enlist the help of a wedding planner. We had such a beautiful event with everything as we envisioned right down to the finest detail. In addition we were made to feel so special with an unbelievable room upgrade and attentive service. The team at Paresa had also found us the best possible make-up artist- Neil Donkin and photographer- Mambo. They are such nice people and amazing at their work. Thank you to all at Paresa with a special mention for Khun Ting. We are so grateful. Hope the satin chair sashes will bless other couples who choose to tie the knot at your facility!

06/17/15 bloomflower Hong Kong, China
Amazing experience. Love the big room with private pool plus the view! Food is amazing. Massage is one of the best ever, highly recommend! Staffs are very friendly, reserved and polite. However, the room cleaning service is very slow and came too late in the afternoon which distrub privacy while planning to enjoy the room. I hope they can clean the room while we're having breakfast or ask for a convenient time. Appreciate if they could provide more tissues and toilet paper as they always run out even after room cleaning service. Should also provide more bathroom mat because there are bath tub, 2 showers (indoor and outdoor) and a pool, makes the room less slippery if they have bath mats in different areas instead of only 1 for the whole room. Dissapointed for the noise as our room is near the restaurant and not much privacy when restaurant guests can see our private pool+balcony. Also dissappointed for not being able to have the romantic dinner by the pool. We were not inform beforehand about the 1 day advance booking. Anyhow, overall this is a great place and will be back again!

The view is magnificent, the service was the best I ever received in many resorts I have went. The breakfast was good and the view I got for having my breakfast was awesome. Only not good thing was the pool area of my room I stayed in had no lights at night. So me and my wife didn't chill outside at night. Wanted to see the stars but it was too dark. But all in all it was a great experience!

"An Amazing second stay - We'll "be bock""
06/12/15 not-so-easy-money Phuket, Thailand
This is our second time. We’ll be back to Paresa again in August. Yes, among the hundreds of hotels and resorts on Phuket Island. Paresa is the outstanding choice for an excellent romantic hideaway. Why? A number of things add up to it being that good. It’s “everything” combined that makes the Paresa more outstanding than the others. I don’t have the words, time, memory, or well enough developed ability to see all the details to outline all that the “everything” entails. But I will give a few examples. The views are spectacular. Situated on a steep hillside ending in a dramatic craggy rocky coastline (no sandy beaches here) the views are dramatic, engaging and inspiring. Sitting anywhere on the resort gazing out virtually requires thoughts of writing prose or even poetry. At the least you will likely be inspired to write a love note to the one you’re with. Views: Check that box. The views are stunning. But there are great views elsewhere on the island, so while it is important and yes, even necessary, it is not enough. The rooms: Check. Individual cabins with private infinity pools, they are very well appointed with a great bed and pillows, exceptional blackout curtains, and significant attention to detail throughout. His and Her bathroom bags of what you might need; interesting reading material – not all just sales brochures – a well-stocked minibar. Speaking of attention to detail, sure it is a top rated resort, and so many are, but how many times have you ran out of drinking water in your room? Well, not here. There is water in the room, and a bottle of water at each of the His and Her sinks in the bathroom - just in case you want to have bottled water to brush your teeth. Also, the coffee pot was already full of water so we didn't have to use out bottled water for our morning coffee (nice touch). It's the “everything” combined that makes the Paresa more outstanding than the other resorts and hotels. I don't have the words, time, memory, or truly a well enough developed ability to see all the details to outline all that the 'everything' entails. But, I will give a few examples. Now this may seem a very small thing to talk about, but to me it is perhaps symbolic of the details that are repeated over and over and over throughout the entire spectrum of our stay. That detail? You know that clear plastic wrap on the top of water bottles that is ninety-nine times out of a hundred a pain in the butt to get off? The one my wife always hands to me in frustration. . . Yeah that one. They remove all of them before putting the bottles in the rooms. The seal is still there. You have to break the seal ring to open the bottle so you know it hasn't been tampered with, but that crappy annoying plastic wrap piece is gone. Also, I don't know about you, but I never know what to do with the piece of plastic once I get it off the bottle - usually I wind up putting it in my pocket so I'm a walking trash can. It is a small thing, but when added to a list of dozens of similar small things it makes for a delightful stay. Service and cleanliness? check and check. You know how some people are very good at getting systems right, they can remember the tiniest detail and are one hundred percent reliable but haven't found a spontaneous smile since their first tooth came in? And there are other personalities who just seem to bubble with enthusiasm about the joy of seeing you. The management at Paresa has this one wired. Everyone who we dealt with, person to person, wore perpetual and genuine smiles. They were truly happy to see us, talk to us, and serve us. It is vastly different than so many places where the wait staff seem to have the mantra of "let them wait". Not only is the service friendly and responsive, it is even proactive throughout. For example, we were walking back to our cottage and a young woman chanced to see us. She stopped what she was doing and asked if we would prefer to buggy ride. English? Thank God! All of the service staff speak English and they speak it well (it is so hard not to write "they speak good English" but then my English wouldn't be all that good . . . ). The point is, we didn't struggle with understanding or being understood. Not once. That is unheard of in Thailand. If you travel around Asia, you will probably agree with most veteran travelers who have concluded Thailand is the worst for English use, even in the most well-traveled locations. Vietnam and Cambodia which are considerably lower on the economic and development scale of things have better English in the hotels, cafes and even on the streets. Big check, high marks for good English throughout, from reception, to maids, to gift store clerks, wait staff etal. Another detail. The stay in the lobby is all of two minutes--tops. Normally, it is ten to fifteen minutes or longer. One person is stuck filling out forms, handing over passports, and credit cards, bla bla, bla, while everyone else (spouse, or spouse and kids) bored, tired from traveling, are stuck hanging out. Not here. Here we went to the reception, in less than two minutes we had confirmed we had a reservation, picked out the type of soap we wanted, got a key and were off to our room. Passports, credit cards etc? All of that was taken care of in the room. In the lobby, the lady took my wife's computer bag, escorted us to the room, then, when in the room, took a picture of our passports and credit card with her I-pad. The registration form that was already filled in from our registration information only needed to be signed. We never had to relinquish our passports or credit card. My wife talked with the lady while I opted to start unpacking. I could have simply enjoyed the view, or well anything but stood around bored in the lobby like I have in hotels literally around the world. The in-room registration is another example of the “everything” details. Clean? five stars for the in-room clean and five stars for in the restaurant clean and the general grounds clean. Not only in the highly populated areas. I took the several hundred steps down to the oceans edge - not a bit of litter all the way down. There just isn't any trash allowed to hang out. And it isn't like this is a sterile or geometric environment - it's the opposite with tropical jungle foliage, planted landscaping, vines, flowers, trees and green growing stuff everywhere. It's easy to be good when everything is right. Try getting it right when everything is wrong. Wrong is the wrong word, but it applies to construction and maintenance when you are staying at a resort where you pay good money for peace, pampering and relaxation. They nailed it, not a problem that bothered us. The decking around the main public pool was apparently rotten and needed replacing. Normally that would have been an invasion of noise and dust and well, you know all the junk that goes along with major construction. There were no screaming electric saws interrupting either our sleep in the morning or our leisurely forty-five minute breakfast at the open deck (gorgeous view) restaurant located just above where the work was being done. Why not? They measured the things they needed and cut them off site. This may seem a small thing until you have had a vacation ruined by some cretin wielding a screeching saw outside your window at 7:00 a.m. every morning (yes, it happened to us in Mexico one year). Sure we would have liked to have had drinks next to the pool and were disappointed it was closed on this trip. But you don't get well maintained decks, and patios, and furniture, and well, everything, in a seaside resort without actually maintaining it. Again the attention to our enjoyment was first and foremost - and it resulted in another aspect of an exceptional stay. One last thing. Someone gave a low rating for location. Hello! You won't get this type of view and quite with an in-the-city next-door location. The road is fine if you drive (we did) and if you hire a taxi, the driver will deal with it. If you want a location next to Bangla Road in Patong to see Suzi Wong's where the women wear only a smile, get a room in town, or pay for a taxi. Otherwise, have a great time, enjoy what Thailand has to offer then come back to the quiet and splendor of an exclusive and slightly remote (about five minutes to the main highway) location. I've gone on pretty long here trying to tell you, my fellow traveler, about an especially well done fully enjoyable resort that I recommend without compunction to couples of all types. Have I stayed at other five star resorts? Yes quite a few in several countries. I've also traveled on "chicken buses" with the chickens on top and dust inside so thick you had to breathe through a bandanna, slept on bamboo beds in thatched huts with dirt floors, so have seen the spectrum of accommodations. From DC to KL to Rome, to Phuket, Paresa easily stands out as one of the top places I've ever stayed.

"Spectacular Infinity Pool Dinner"
06/07/15 GGHolliday Hong Kong, China
Spent one relaxing week in Aqua Pool Suite. We did massage at The Spa by Paresa on most days, as the therapists were all skillful. Infinity Pool dinner over looking sunset over the Andaman sea, was certainly one of the most memorable dining of lifetime. The three course menu was pre-ordered and pre-paid ahead of time. Went to "WoW" island half day snorkelling trip, marine life was not abundant, and corals were either dead or discolored. However, we were delighted by the Thai lunch which was set-up on the nearby quiet Layan Beach. We gave some feedback/ suggestions to management to enhance house-keeping services which I am sure fellow travellers would better enjoy the resort with improvements in those regards.

"Views are simply stunning"
06/06/15 LPolwin London, United Kingdom
A very unique place to stay in Phuket, it is tucked away on the hillside away from the touristy areas of the island. The views are simply stunning and the massage in the spa was one of the best I have ever had in Thailand.
