Firstly - Koh Samui is nice, but it isn't paradise. The beaches aren't that great .. the Maldives it ain't, but if you are looking for a THAI get away .. it's the place to be. Secondly - if you decide to go to Koh Samui .. YOU MUST look at Zazen before booking your accomodations. This is boutique traveling... More

This Thai/Belgian-run boutique resort is a haven of tranquility and comfort on Koh Samui. The restaurant serves excellent Thai and Continental food with a Belgian flair. Friendly, competent service from the staff and nicely appointed bungalows. We had a few mechanical snafus with one bungalow a member of our group was staying in, but the staff did their best to...

We have just returned from Thailand and stayed in five areas of the country, at four hotels and on a sailboat for a week staying at four islands around and south of Koh Chang. The only place we would not go back to is Koh Samui as we definately found more interesting locations with better beaches. The beach in front... More

Went back to Samui for the first time after 20+ years, despite my daughter's advice that the place was now no longer a paradise. She was dead right - Samui is bit of a dump now, and what a shame that is - but luckily we followed Tripadvisor readers' advice and stayed at Zazen. We were in a garden villa... More
