The staff here were extremely helpful. its a quiet resort, set in lush gardens right on the beach - more suitable for couples than families, great for a romantic break. Food is great - wine choice good but expensive.

Room tip: A villa on the beach is well worth it! Villa one is nearest the pool but more people walk past this - Villa 5 is at the end so less people walk past there - but the number of people is still low so not really an issue and the view is well worth it. The spa is a real treat and the staff were very good. there are some restaurants and bars within walking walking distance but the greatest choice is at Fishermans village -a 20 min walk along the beach (longer by road) or a $7 taxi ride - this is well worth a visit any night but especially Friday night when the market is on.

We stayed at Zazen back in 2010 for our honeymoon in May - amazing resort on the beach, great spa, great food (the best breakfast ever & very exquisite restaurant for dinner). The rooms are very cosy, romantic, big and very clean and nicely decorated. Pool area and the gardens are amazing. One issue only with the air conditioning is directed to the bed, which is quite unpleasant and unhealthy when is very hot and high humidity. Besides this, a truly great experience and would love to go back.

Had my wedding here in May . After a few small problems with the e mails and misunderstanding we finally had a magical wedding day . The food here is by far first class and even if you dont stay at the resort the restaurant is worth a visit ... Its far more expensive then your average restaurant but thats because this is not your average restaurant , its simply first class with its food ... attention to detail on the presentation is amazing . We stayed 3 night s ... small rooms but beautifully decorated and the breakfast buffet was really good with a vast choice . Staff in the bar do not speak or understand that much english so this needs to be worked on more . Accents can be difficult but even so we had difficulty at times . The Spa was amazing ... I would also say how small the pool is but you have a wonderful beach in front so this was not a big issue . The staff always smiled and this is very welcoming in . We will be back . Please go and stay , if not go to eat , its a must while you are in Samui ..

Room tip: all rooms are decorated well ... the beach front are not so private ...

Four friends including me stayed at this wonderful resort for a week - and we didn't want to leave!
The rooms were beautifully decorated, well air conditioned and with outdoor (but slightly covered) bathroom.
Pool area was lovely as was the beach and the surrounding gardens were stunning.
Staff couldn't be more attentive if they tried - food was amazing at breakfast and when we had dinner in the restaurant one night the quality was top notch.

I don't have any bad comments for zazen and would not hesitate to come back!

We spent a wonderful week in Zazen! Spa was fantastic and the restaurant also - service is a bit slow, but they are really polite. :) So our stay was simply amazing. We will definitely come back!
And we would like to say thank you to Zazen's wedding team one more time. You made our dream come true :)
