Found this place on tripadvisor with high praise. I'm normally very particular about hotel but decide to venture a little bit. The room really is not what I expected (Chinese toilet? Light nor working in bathroom? No hot water? No tv?) however the host was nice enough & switched us to a room with western toilet & functioning bathroom the... More

I've been to Zen twice now, once backpacking on my own and once with a friend and I would go back in a heartbeat. The beach being a short walk away is great, the times that i've gone it hasn't been crowded at all and the water is really clean. There are hills that you can hike up and even... More

Surprisingly nice and calm beach in Shenzhen. Don't expect bars or jet ski rentals around. You will feel yourself in your friends beach house rather than a customer at a guesthouse. If you're living in the area, this is the best place you can go for a beach weekend.

Don't go there if you are looking for some fancy place with bars, shops and blah blah blah... GO there if you need some time with nature! I spent 3 days there and was lucky to stay at alsmost empty house and had great empty beach to myself. The beach is not that far and actually walking to the beach... More

I just got back from Zen Guesthouse, and I have nothing but good things to say about it ! I found the website www.zen-guesthouse.com online and instantly fell in love with the place. It definitely lives up to it's name, where we felt REALLY calm and relax at any given time of the day. Really nice place, spacey, simple, clean,... More

We loved it! Very relaxed atmosphere with a home away from home feeling. Wonderful decoration and trendy. Rooms were clean and the English breakfast was a welcoming surprise. All in all our stay was good and I will certainly be coming back. Thank you Rachel for your kind hospitality.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Zen Guesthouse was started by a group of people from China, South Africa, Australia, and Canada who wanted to take advantage of Shenzhen's proximity to some of China's most beautiful coastline. We were tired of spending all our time fighting the traffic and noise of downtown life, and wanted to be able to drop everything on the weekends and go relax at the beach.We found a place in the quiet town of Dongchong and immediately started knocking down walls to let the sunlight in, and painting the rooms bright colours to match the better mood we all felt when we got there each weekend.Word spread fast amongst our friends and colleagues, and pretty soon we were meeting new people each weekend from across China and the world, all looking for a place to relax in the sun and forget the stress of work in the city.We welcome you to come down and spend some time with all of us, and hope our guesthouse will have the same regenerating effect on your daily life that it's had on ours!Your home away from home.Guesthouse Details:All rooms have en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning. There is a common lounge and a roof top terrace for all guests to enjoy. The terrace has breathtaking views of the mountains behind and the sea in front. Guests have full use of the kitchen, BBQ & pizza oven, and an honour system is used for drinks. Basically help yourself 24 hours a day to drinks and sign your name. For the nature lovers there are beautiful mountain trails to enjoy as well as some good waves for the avid surfers. ... more   less
