Nice boutique resort with good location to both the beach which is on its doorstep and Lamai's main street. It's not right in the heart of the main area but still a short walk to get to. We booked a villa with a plunge pool, which even though there was a villa next door to is we found that we... More

We enjoyed our stay at Zara. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The location is close to the Main Street and the beach, although this part of the beach is not the best Lamai has to offer. The bedroom is big with comfortable bed and air conditioning. The mini bar is cheap, but there is a family mart close by... More

We stayed at Zara beach resort for 3 nights recently. We arrived at a lovely reception and were very excited to see a beautiful pool right near by. However if you cast your eyes just beyond the pool you are greeted by an open sewer. Bit of an eye sore as you look out to sea and does throw the... More

Zara Beach Resort is a well-kept secret. In its own jungle on the beach, Zara is not your typical hotel room. Spacious, clean and unique. Lots of windows and sophisticated design. The jungle surrounding your villa guarantees privacy. The staff is friendly and warm and the GM Renee is definitely an asset. If you need recommendations for restaurants, fun and... More

My girlfriend and I were looking for a unique experience for a much needed vacation.
