Zazen has a lot to like- careful aesthetics, nice staff, romantic nightime setting. And a few things not to like: small pool, questionable water quality at beach( near a large outflow area) and beautiful but occasionally bland food. We stayed at the hotel for a week; the hotel hosted a large party which effectively closed the hotel for guests which...

We spent a magical 5 week honeymoon in Koh Samui 18 years ago and were keen to show the island to our two children (12 and 9). We spent 5 nights in Bangkok and 9 nights in southern Samui before arriving at Zazen. Koh Samui as a whole was a real let down due to the number of big, ugly...

We just returned from our trip to Thailand. The first week we stayed at Zazen and I must say it's one of the best hotel I ever stayed in. Staff/Service The staff is extremely friendly and you soon get the feeling they like their job. Their English is very good compared to staff in other hotels in Thailand so you...

Zazen is a great resort - from the moment you are welcomed by friendly staff with a cold glass of fruit juice, you feel instantly chilled! The resort genuinely does have a 'boutique' feel to it - it feels small and personal but with the standards of service, cleanliness and restaurant/bar to match any large top-end hotel chain. The staff...

My wife and I stayed at Zazen for our honeymoon a few weeks ago, and I couldn't thank them more for such an amazing start to our married life. We stayed in a beachside villa, which was absolutely stunning. I'm getting goose pimples thinking of when I opened my sliding glass door and stepped directly onto the most stunning beach....

We stayed at Zazen for 8 nights in August. We were in a deluxe garden villa. From first arrival to the day we left we were made to feel extremely welcome and special and thoroughly enjoyed every bit of our stay.

I was slightly underwhelmed initially. The resort had made a mistake with our arrival time and we were left at the airport having to contact the resort to be picked up. In addition, the initial feel of the resort is low key, and not particularly high end. Overall: the resort is lovely, with fantastic service and a very pleasant and...
