This beautiful boutique hotel is tucked in at the end of the nicest part of bophut beach. As usual, the Thai hospitality was front and centre the minute we arrived. We toured the stunning grounds and were taken to our beautiful garden Villa. The rooms are very large and bright surrounded by windows in a contemporary Thai style. The garden... More

Visited Zazen for lunch on the verandah overlooking the beach. It's a great spot to relax and enjoy their delicious Thai food. The food is good, although they err on the side of caution when it comes to adding chilies and it could be more spicey! We also treated ourselves to the spa and had a very enjoyable body massage....

Absolutely breathtaking. Possibly the best or certainly one of the best places to stay on the island. The price is ridiculously affordable. The theme, service, rooms, amenities, and can't forget the food food food. PERFECT!

My husband and I stayed in zazen resort for 9 nights in October. We chose a garden villa, and were very happy with it – the room was beautifully decorated, the bed was comfortable & there was daily good housekeeping. The reason I gave a rating of 4 instead of 5, is since the water pressure in the shower was... More

Stayed in the Zazen as a couple and the minute we arrived we were blown away. The smells, sights, sounds and tastes of this hotel heightened our experience.

Forget everything you know about boutique hotels. Zazen defines a whole new level! The bungalows are set in a beautiful tropical garden or at the sea front. At night, everything is impressively lit by candles and lanterns. It's an oasis of calm and relaxation. The bungalows are beautifully furnished, spacious and very clean. The team is great, very attentive and... More
