We held our wedding at Zazen on May 5th for 30 family members and friends, and I cannot say enough positive things about how amazing our day was. We were planning our wedding from Canada and had never been to Koh Samui before. It was overwhelming narrowing down the resort options, but we are so happy with Zazen and feel... More

My wife and I had our wedding here on 28th February 2015 after much deliberation on several “destination” wedding venue options. We’re so happy we picked Zazen in the end, as they made everything completely seamless and stress-free in the lead up and planning of the big day. Rio, our wedding planner, was very friendly, responsive and all round attentive,... More

This is one of the best places I have ever stayed in. The staff is amazing and cater to your every need. They are extremely friendly and always helpful. The room we had booked was a garden villa deluxe. It was close to the reception desk and close to the pool/beach. The pool was a really great set up with... More

Wonderful resort! Very nice staff and excellent food. Everything is well organised and the only thing you need to do is relax. Unbelievable experience. We had the best Spa treatment so far on our honeymoon in Zazen spa. Thanks to the Zazen Team!

VERY DISAPPOINTING THIRD STAY AT ZAZEN! We loved this place on our first two stays and raved about Zazen to everyone who wanted to listen. Unfortunately we were very sad to experience the somewhat declined standards on our third stay. Immediately upon the start of our Zazen experience we felt an uncomfortable change as the driver who collected us from... More

We were a bit unlucky with the weather on our trip so we didn't get to enjoy the beach very much. However, we loved our room and the general feel of the place - very chilled and feels secluded and quiet whilst only being a 10 minute walk from bars and restaurants in Bophut. We stayed in the Garden Deluxe... More

I've stayed at other beach resorts in Thailand - this has been the best. The resort itself is beautiful, lovely gardens and surrounds. The pool isn't big but it's still good, and besides, the resort is right on the beach anyway. The Spa in the resort is wonderful - the Thai massages are fantastic, and not outrageously expensive. The main... More
