I don't know who is behind the Zazen but it is by far the most excellent establishment we have stayed at on Koh Samui. It's not inexpensive, but we were able to get internet deals. The food in the restaurant, while delicious, is a tiny bit pricey, but that's ok (just get rid of the "updated" mango sticky rice desert... More

We spend 8 days at Zazen hotel in July 2015. It was a wonderful stay in our beach bungalow (Nr. 5) situated very close to the white beach. The sea is very warm, but the ground is a little bit muddy (little river close to the hotel). So we preferred to use the nice swimming pool every day. We enjoyed... More

We spent one week in the beautiful Zazen Boutique Resort & Spa in Koh Samui. We were satisfied all around and can just recommend this lovely hotel. What you shouldn’t miss if you are there is the unique Zazen Restaurant managed by executive chef Mattias Pawlik. We were in many restaurants around Koh Samui but in our view the Zazen... More

Our family stayed for three wonderful days at the Zazen, as a part of our Thailand trip (Bangkok - Phuket - Krabi - Koh Samui). We had a beachfront villa, large enough for two adults and one child (but not more). There are a lot of positive things to say about the Zazen: the staff is very friendly and attentative.... More

Everything was organised via email without face-to-face contact and every detail was exactly as we imagined. Thank you Zazen and staff, especially Rio! who made our day so very special. Our... More
