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

We stayed at the Zara boutique hotel in July 2013 we had read quite a few of the reviews on here with regards to smells but found no problems at all. We stayed in the royal villa with a nice size pool with a large bath and plenty of storage. We overlooked the stream and the beach. The hotel just... More

We were a little early to arrive so we waited in restaurant while our room was organized. The river is a little daunting at first slightly smelly but not enough to spoil you're time here. Our pool villa was great but no privacy when using pool. Main pool is good as is the bar there. Staff are amazing all very... More

We stayed at the Zara, going by the pictures and reviews online to celebrate our anniversary. We'd only been able to book the smallest room which didn't have a pool as it was the only one available for booking on booking.com with the exception of the largest apartment which is suitable for a larger party. We felt really let down... More

We were expecting luxurious place where to have great and relaxing vacation in a luxurious environment. It was definitely not the case. I first tried to call the hotel while in the taxis as our driver was not able to... More
