“Paresa Resorts claims to be the “heaven of all heavens” - and it may well be true. Perched atop a cliff in an area of Phuket dubbed ‘Millionaire’s Mile,’ Paresa crafts a near-celestial experience for those fortunate enough to seek refuge here. Set amidst verdant foliage on the side of a rocky slope, the hotel offers spectacular views out to the Andaman Sea. The island’s lush and untamed landscape is enhanced with Paresa’s understated architecture - earthy-toned, modernist buildings that blend seamlessly into their surroundings. Expansive hotel suites decked out with floor-to-ceiling windows, private plunge pools, and an outdoor shower further cultivates a blurring of boundaries between inside and the outdoors.
While Paresa prides itself on this organic approach to design, there’s nothing unpolished about the hotel itself. Every possible whim is catered for via the two on-site restaurants, spa, library, gym and wide assortment of activities that includes private cooking classes and adventure excursions. Yet despite this opulence, Paresa holds true to the belief that luxury is best found in simplicity. It’s this sense of ease that elevates it from mere splendor - to the sublime.”
