Paresa Resort Phuket: Vegetarian Street Food Festival Package

27th August 2014

Two years ago we had one of the most remarkable, enlightening and enjoyable experiences when we traveled to Thailand for the Phuket Vegetarian Festival.

Phuket Vegetarian Festival

During the 10-day Phuket Vegetarian Festival, vegan food is a primary component of the rituals and traditions of this holy celebration. Across the island kitchens are prepped and menus are transformed to go vegan. Red and yellow flags adorn restaurants and stalls offering ‘Jay’/เจ food, loosely translated – strict vegetarian or vegan. People who otherwise wouldn’t be exposed to these delicacies are devouring seitan, tofu, bean curd and vegan versions of popular non-vegan dishes.

We can say from experience that this is the best opportunity to visit Phuket if you are vegan. During the Phuket Vegetarian Festival you’ll think the island has rolled out the red carpet just for you!

To have that red carpet extended even further though, Paresa Resort Phuket is offering their amazing Vegetarian Street Food Festival package.

Resort Concept

The architectural design of Paresa effortlessly evolves out of and blends into the natural surroundings of lush tropical vegetation. Drawing from Southern Thai cultural traditions, Paresa is a modern day reinterpretation of Southern Thai architecture and design – understated yet elegant. Built around several magnificent Banyan trees, elements of Paresa’s structural design are reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired organic architecture.

Guaranteed to arouse all the senses, the Paresa experience is made complete with high quality service provided by discreet, yet friendly, warm and welcoming Thai staff, each named an Angel, and each trained to provide the highest standards of service quality under international management.
