I think it's the most pleasant and beautiful place to stay in lamay beach. Beautifully designed, very nice rooms, comfortable beds and shower in the room, in front of the room there's a privet pool and a nice garden. The hotel crew is very helpful and friendly. Perfect place!

We stayed in the Royal Pool Villa for six nights in July 2015. The Villa was spacious and clean. There are no walls/doors between livingroom, bedroom and bathroom so don´t expect any privacy from your travel companions. The private pool was very shallow. Perfect for us, since our 3-year old could walk around and play in the pool but for... More

The stay at Zara beach resort was an excellent experience, and I was pleased with everything starting with the transfer from Samui Airport , that was smooth an organized to the first impression of the resort that has a very pleasant layout . The villas are surrounded by gardens and vegetation with tiled passages and have a private decking area,... More

This was an amazing place to stay and the hotel staff were lovely, very pleasant and very polite. The hotel is based very close to the central shopping area and has a lovely beach to come with it! Also it has the Sunday market on its doorstop which is a lot of fun! Fantastic rooms, will be staying again!!

Great place. Very spacious rooms. The breakfasts were a bit different to what we are used to in England, but I was expecting that and they do cater to western pallets. The smell of sewage is not great but bearable. The location is a bit further from the main strip but that was fine for me and my wife. Be... More

We had a terrible experience at the Zara Beach Resort, there are much better places along Lamai Beach to spend your money. This 'resort' was so disappointing it's hard to know where to start. The mosquitoes were really bad, the smell of the open sewer that runs along the front of the resort was putrid and the large volume of... More

We stayed in the double pool villa which was spacious spotless and ideal for us, our daughter her husband and young baby. We had not made a reservation and just walked in and they couldn't have been more helpful. When we asked to extend our stay and the room we were in had already been booked they offered us two...

We stayed at Grand Suite Plunge Pool in December 2012 and we like almost everything about this resort. Stayed in total of 3 hotels in Samui and Zara is the last one. Among all, Zara staff spoke the most fluent english and it was easy for us to communicate with them. We are not even a little effected by the... More
