There are no words to describe our experience at Zazen. We had the most AMAZINGLY INCREDIBLE wedding ever imaginable. Every single detail was perfection - from the staff who were so friendly, courteous and helpful to the food which was spectacular, to the ceremony which was out of this world and even though we knew the layout of the day...

Zazen is absolutely stunning. There is a big difference in accommodation size between various villas so choose wisely! We had a garden villa which was lovely. Eat in the Zazen restaurant at least once, itsa special experience, but don't forget the other restaurants and bars at fisherman's village and along the main road. Some are real diamonds in the rough,... More

My boyfriend and i chose this hotel among others not only because of the wonderful reviews on tripadvisor but also because of the pictures we saw on their web site! I was amazed and i definetely wanted to stay there. When we arrived we thought we are somewhere in Paradise! So many flowers everywhere and small canals with fish, the... More

While Koh Samui is no longer the paradise it once was, the Zazen provides a beautiful and relaxing refuge amongst the hustle and bustle. Location and beach: Located at the end (or close to the end) of Bo Phut beach, the Zazen is removed from the chaos of Chaweng beach. While the stretch of beach located in front of the... More

To start I would say that Zazen stands by all the good things written about it. I was there for 5 nights on my honeymoon and teh only thing I can say is that it cannot get better than this. The service was best in class I have ever experienced.. the staff is exteremly friendly and they really care.. exteremely... More

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
