Spa :: The Spa at PARESA in Phuket Thailand



The Spa: The Spa by PARESA

The Treatments: We kept it simple here and opted for a short, but indulgent, foot massage. After all the touring we did throughout Bangkok and flying to Phuket, my tootsies were ready for a little TLC. The treatment room was a doubles suite, and MB and I each had our own therapist who wrapped towels around our calves and feet to loosen the tight muscles. Aromatherapy oil was then slathered over feet and legs and my therapist went to work on the pressure points. I tend to get really sore in the arches of my feet, so the right pressure on those arches of my mine really are a game-changer. If you couple that with soothing music, a setting sun over the Andaman sea, time with great friends and a glass of wine awaiting me … well let’s just say I was in heaven.

The Atmosphere: The Spa is a cliffside sanctuary that like many of the spas in Thailand, boasts a strong commitment to its tried-and-true traditions. Natural luxury ingredients are geared to purify the senses. We were greeted by hints of jasmine, sandalwood, ylang ylang and lemongrass as we sipped our tea in the dramatic foyer.

Facilities & Offerings:

5 double treatment suites with baths and steam showers

Private balconies overlooking the Andaman Sea

A salon that offers pedicures, manicures, waxing and hair styling.

Oncall therapists can offer yoga, reiki, meditation and mind-body solutions.

What I loved:

The view, the view, the view. Give me a cliffside massage room and a setting sun and I am seriously done.

Foot massages are a great way to pack in a lot of pampering in a short time frame.  We seriously squeezed ours in after sea-kayaking and before dinner.

The private suite.

The aromatherapy wafting throughout the dramatic Thai architecture.

Don’t be surprised:

The golf carts that take you through the narrow trails of the property can feel a little scary at times. A bit like Mr. Toad’s wild ride.

Stay :: Paresa Resort in Phuket, Thailand


One of my favorite things in the world, is when an infinity pool overlooks the ocean high on a cliff with the sky as a backdrop. It’s a study in blue. And when you add a bathtub, overlooking the infinity pool in your own private villa? Now you have a piece of heaven that is called Paresa.
