Both my husband and myself were extremely impressed with all this beautiful resort had to offer. From the moment we were collected from the airport by a driver who was friendly and well presented, we were offered ice cold water, towels and a newspaper then driven in a very comfortable vehicle to the resort. We were offered another cold refreshing...

I always read reviews and do not always believe them. This is the first review I have ever written and I have been driven to write this because of what a wonderful stay I had on Koh Samui at ZAZEN Resort. The setting is wonderful and all the buildings/villas are very clean and immaculate. The best thing about Zazen is...

My wife and I went back at the beginning of October 2010 to Koh Samui and have chosen Zazen Boutique Resort & Spa because we had had a good souvenir of our last stay. We were agreeably surprised: the reception is now a smart place a “and shock” in itself: in the middle of an immense garden made up of...

Came to Zazen for our honeymoon, and could not have stayed anywhere nicer. All the small details are thought of. The setting is an encompassing oasis of beauty and tranquility. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The english translations may be lost sometimes, but that is part of travelling to a foreign country. We both enjoyed the food, and...

We really loved this hotel. For me it is one of the best, I stayed so far. The staff is really taking care about you and the food is so delicious. Yes, the beach is not perfect white sand however the atmosphere is totally compensating this. The bungalows are very spacious and I liked all the colours in- and outside...

Stayed there from end of September til begin of October with my girlfriend for 5 nights. Wonderful, clean and feelgood Resort, where they put a lot of energy and heart into creating a wonderful atmosphere. The staff is great, friendly, kind and well educated. Had the cheapest room (out of 3 categories) which were a little bit small but had...

A beautiful resort, yet far away from the restaurants and bars. Rooms were slightly small - smaller than I expected. But a beautiful location and breakfast. Small and cute. But not for friends - definitely a place for couples!!

Zazen has a lot to like- careful aesthetics, nice staff, romantic nightime setting. And a few things not to like: small pool, questionable water quality at beach( near a large outflow area) and beautiful but occasionally bland food. We stayed at the hotel for a week; the hotel hosted a large party which effectively closed the hotel for guests which...

We spent a magical 5 week honeymoon in Koh Samui 18 years ago and were keen to show the island to our two children (12 and 9). We spent 5 nights in Bangkok and 9 nights in southern Samui before arriving at Zazen. Koh Samui as a whole was a real let down due to the number of big, ugly...
