Why Stay At Paresa

This stunning Phuket resort, spa, and cooking school—a clifftop gem above the Andaman Sea—offers views of Kamala Bay from private balconies and an infinity pool.

The Scoop

You've traveled to Phuket for one reason: Andaman Sea views. And at the cliffside Paresa ("heaven of heavens" in Sanskrit), all 49 suites and villas face Kamala Bay, and many have private patios and private pools. Beach access is only slightly harder to come by. Take a 10-minute stroll or a quick shuttle ride down to Kamala's shore, site of the resort's beach club. Yet, even with all these sights, the hotel's nighttime scene is still the most picturesque. The fiber-optic lit infinity pool juts out over the mountain, and after sunset, it evokes a starry sky. Two restaurants, one Thai (Talung Thai), and one Italian (Diavolo), share one large space that encompasses a sea-view deck built around banyan trees. Prefer to play chef? Classes at the resort's Thai cooking school include kitchen demos and guided tours of a local produce market.

Insider Tips

Book a double daybed that floats on the infinity pool, then order dinner served by wading waiters amid the fiber-optic starlight (from THB 6000 per couple).

Plan on spending extra time at the spa post-treatment. Each of the five treatment rooms have balconies where you can unwind with a cup of tea after a Thai massage.

Preferred Airport

Arrive at Phuket International Airport (HKT) which is approximately 20 miles from the resort. Anticipate about 45 minutes of travel time.

Why We Love Phuket

This southern Thai island is best known for its white-sand beaches and snorkeling spots, but there's also the Sino-colonial history of Old Phuket Town, boutiques for affordable custom clothing, and the gilded pagodas of Buddhist temple Wat Chalong.
