Our initial impression on landing on koh samui was 'why did we bother'. We hadn't booked ahead but used Lonely Planet guide + trip advisor to find this resort. We had a car and were lucky to be able to view a few places to stay before checking in. Zazen offer boutique style rooms and excellent service from friendly staff....

The Zazen has taken the cake as the best place I have ever stayed in. I checked into 4 very good resorts in Thailand and it was by far the best, and better than any other hotel resort anywhere in the globe. The staff and the accomadation were 10/10, rare to find these days!!

From the time of our arrival we was warmly and generous treated. Our room, a garden bungalow, was clean, large, with an open bathroom. We haven't missed anything. The resort even offers a library, DVDs, internet and free wifi all around the resort. The service was absolutely excellent; from the maid up to the staff at the beach, they all...

We had a beach front room, right on the first line on the beach and it was absolutely amazing. Besides the beauty of Zazen, the staff is great. The place is well decorated, well maintained and answered all our needs. I will be back for sure!

We got married in Koh Samui in early February and following reviews on Tripadvisor, we picked Zazen for our hotel accomodation and were not disappointed. It was absolutely amazing. A number of our friends also stayed at Zazen and everyone was in agreement - the hotel really is superb. The gardens are lush and green, the staff are all very...

Our teenage family found Zazen to be relaxed yet stylish. We stayed in one beachfront and one garden bungalow... the teens felt and were extremely spoilt! Bungalows had a very Zen feel, were well laid-out and kept in good clean condition. We loved the outdoor bathrooms. Restaurant for breakfast daily was special with beautiful water views and a glass of...

Visited Zazen a few times for lunch and dinner on previous trips to Koh Samui, so we decided to stay there this time. Selected a Garden Villa as our acommodation. Have to say that eventhough its looks lovely, the practical side of it was less endearing. Too many windows and too many steps for the size of the Villa. Too...

ZaZen is a superb small boutique hotel resort with a fantastic restaurant, Spa and boutique shop. I have spent several times there in their great restaurant and bought almost the entire boutique shop but unfortunatley never was able (nor willing) to book a room (just too expensive..) Food is outstanding, especially the "non-thai" section (if you want to eat "real"...
