Hotel Overview


Situated along the ‘millionaires’ mile’ area on the west coast of Phuket, within easy reach of Kamala and Patong Bay.

Rooms at Paresa

There are 49 pool villas and suites designed using a modern interpretation of Southern Thai architecture, with sustainable and locally-hewn timbers, and green roofs that blend into the surroundings.  From one-bedroom suites to four-bedroom villas, all accommodation is sea-facing, with airy open-plan teak-floored living areas leading on to private balconies or terraces with infinity pools. Larger villas offer outdoor bathrooms and a butler service.

Food and Facilities

Diavolo restaurant offers Italian cuisine against a dramatic backdrop of fire-red walls, while Paresa’s al fresco signature restaurant, Thalung Thai, serves local dishes beneath a Banyan tree canopy. The highlight for many guests is the Infinity Experience: unforgettable private dining on the daybed pontoons of the hotel’s fibre-optic lit main infinity pool, which mirrors the stars in the night sky.

Activities at Paresa

Go elephant trekking, learn the art of Thai cooking in Recipe, the resort’s cookery school, or if you want to stretch your sea legs, take a private yacht charter and explore the coastline.  On your return head to The Spa by Paresa, a heavenly sanctuary offering a range of spa treatments and rituals and a detox wellness programme.  Guests also have the use of the resort library and the Kamala Beach Club.
