We spent 5 nights at this resort, the villa was clean, spacious, & made our stay very comfortable. Staff very friendly, breakfast is served on the beach, very plain but enough to get you started. The plunge pool was a little cool compared to the water temperature in the sea & resort pool. The Sunday night markets are not to... More

Stayed for 2 nights from 1-3 Sep 2014, beginning of the low season (only 4 of 12 villas occupied). Located off the main street between a residence and the beach with rich garden setting. Very quiet. However, it seats right in front of a stream cum sewer which only sometimes gave unpleasant odour but bearable. Its just 3 mins walk... More

We spent 4 days here in Samui with my partner after our Phuket stay, and to be honest we made the right decision for choosing Zara. If you want to relax it is the place to be! Its perfect for couples for its genuine tranquility, peace, romantic setting and a private beach front too. Its like a honeymoon. Far away... More

As soon as I made a reservation and spoke to Mr. Ball I knew I was in good hands. When we arrived from the airport ,Mr. Ball was there at check in time as we requested an early check in. He was very kind, courteous, respectful and also helped recovering our bags(as we don't speak Thai), which came on a... More

We stayed at Zara for the first leg of our honeymoon during its soft opening. I am sure there are more facilities available to guests now, but even without an onsite restaurant at the time, we really did have a fabulous stay. The pool looks directly over the beach, and the deck area and covered pool house was just beautiful.... More

My husband and I stayed at the zara beach resort for 10 days and overall had a great and relaxing time! As some other people have reported, the river behind the resort can get a little smelly but nothing that overly put us off.. It was a quite little place and although the staff weren't great with their English, they... More

Found this resort by chance, literally walked up to it from the beach. The resort is small, quiet and very modern. Each of the bungalows are finished well and the staff are very helpful. Great value for what is on offer. Just off the main Lamai walking street, this resort offers a break from the noise of Lamai. The resort... More

Was in Samui for several days and really liked my stay at this resort. it had been years since I last visited the island. I made it a point to have a look at the other resorts as well for future reference. There are many to choose from but Zara stood out for me because of its location in Lamai.... More
