We had a wonderful wedding and unforgettable holidays at Zazen Boutique Resort. It's an excellent location for up to 50 guests. Khun Rio is a real master of ceremonies. Always patient and caring. The ceremony at the beach, the beautiful flower decorations and the excellent service made our wedding day a perfect experience. Thanks a lot to all the Zazen... More

We loved this place. Went for honeymoon in 2010 and they were so gracious and welcoming. Idyllic and restful with a great atmosphere and phenomenal cuisine. Also, we had to cancel at the last minute and reschedule our dates due to an emergency which they accommodated with no trouble whatsoever and with no extra expense. I can't recommend this enough....

Upon arrival, my husband and I were SO impressed with the look and grounds of Zazen. We were shown to our room, (17) and gushed over the appeal of the "beach hut" type of feel. Within a few hours, we realized that the room was not very clean. I lifted the pillows on the couch and there were dead mosquitoes... More

Wonderful exclusive experience that aims towards those who seek tranquility. If you are getting a bungalow on the beach, make sure you get from 2+ (not 1 as a big tree blocks the view). This place is for the adult audience that appreciate the finer things in life such as champagne for breakfast (of which is incredible) and a private... More

We booked the Honeymoon Package at Zazen and it did not disappoint. I admit at first sighting, the Beach Villa was a little disappointing (small in size, weak air conditioning, a little run down), but the beautiful weather, good food, and great service easily made up for it. I highly recommend the restaurant (my husband had the best lamb of... More

We stay at Zazen in July and love the service which felt like 5 star. The hotel is located at Bophut and just little minute drive from fisherman village and Chaweng beach. Rooms are nicely appointed and comfortable and pool is clean. The beach of the hotel is nice but not great for swimming.

We had an amazing time at Zazen! Rooms are great, service super but the absolute champion is the restaurant with its top-chef Matthias!!! He's not only a fantastic cook but he elevates the restaurant and team to the highest level. Atmosphere is great: very relaxing but still filled with anticipation and surprise... We more than recommend this very 'zen' resort!
