My partner and I had our wedding at Zazen on 15 March 2015. A year ago when we got engaged we reached out to a few different resorts in Koh Samui and Zazen provided the quickest and most informative replies. We have been very happy with our decision to have our wedding at Zazen. The planning process was very organised... More

After trying an in-port overnight stay in Tahiti, we thought we would try the same idea at Zazen on our Asia cruise. We arrived early and were immersed in the tranquility and beauty of the resort. The landscape, architecture, serenity, music, FOOD!, view, beach, bungalow all blended together to make a perfect retreat. Late the next day, after our vacation,... More

We arrived by ship and work as crew on the ship. We just needed time to relax. Maew, assisted me with the first day of treatments. They allowed me & my friend, Lori to use the pool and have lunch. The whole experience from the changing room to the bed that you have your treatment on, was just wow! The... More

We really couldn't fault this wonderful boutique hotel in any way! It was everything we expected and more - the grounds are lovely, the spa fantastic (you must have a massage here), the restaurant had the best food we had on Koh Samui, the Garden Villas are lovely and very comfortable, the beach and pool area great and we loved...

I have tons of things to write about this place. First of all, the location and the artistic way the resort is done. Love the Buddhas and statues kept at every stop around waterfalls and greenery. It's a pleasure to walk from the reception to the room. Located ten mins away from the airport and very convenient to shop for... More

I stayed at Zazen with my wife and infant daughter for 4 nights. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The amenities within the resort are superb with the beach a stone's throw away, good selection of food & beverages, wide array of spa packages and decent wifi across the resort, including the beach. One minor inconvenience was the number... More

We were amazed at the experience we had at Zazen. The best meals we have had in Asia were our dinner and breakfast here and by themselves made our stay incredible. Add to this the extra mile, preemptive service by their highly skilled staff and a lovely setting on the beach and you'll understand why we were so happy. That's... More

Lovely hotel, great grounds, lots of lovely shaded seating areas with Moroccan style couches etc. Great swimming pool, but not enough sunbeds around it - had to get there early to get one! (Having said that, there were plenty of sunbeds on the beach, and other seating areas close to the pool, so in the end, probably no-one missed out!)... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and chose the Bo Phut beach area because we thought it would be a quiet beach but near to the fisherman's village to do things. The grounds are very relaxing and beautifully landscaped. Our Garden Villa cabin was nice and comfortable. We did have a minor problem with no hot water... More

This resort is small and beautifully designed. The food, spa, service and ambience was just fantastic. The staff were so friendly. I do not have one bad thing to say. I would return here every time I come to Samui.
