We had a lovely long weekend at Zazen. The hotel is in a great location in Bophut, perfect for couples and young families. The resort was perfect. It had a small but adequate pool, great spa and perfect beach location. The onsite restaurant is fantastic. The breakfasts are great and the dinner was delicious. Highly recommend desserts! The staff were...

Well what can I say that hasn't already been said? We spent 10 wonderful, unforgettable days here in February. A absolute gem of a place - wonderful staff - nothing was too much trouble. The food was amazing - we ate at the restaurant several times during our stay. Our room was beautiful, we had a beach front bungalow. How...

At first when me and husband arrived to Zazen, we were amazed by the beauty of the surroundings and we were delighted that the hotel looked much better in real life than in photos. Then we were greeted by super nice staff which made us feel special. We had our wedding in Zazen, which we have planned with lovely Rio....

Excellent room, delux garden bungalow, very clean, loved the outside/inside bathroom. All the staff were so friendly and polite. Breakfast choice was excellent, had a meal in resturant, bit expensive but really nice, very large portions. Soon learnt that you had to be up early to get a sun bed. This could be may only complaint, NOT ENOUGH sun beds.

We were here for our daughter's wedding; what a truly lovely day! Rio was the wedding planner and had everything organised down to the finest detail. She had been in constant contact with our daughter in the weeks leading up to the wedding and nothing was too much trouble for her. But Zazen is not a wedding day production line...

Travelled to Zazen as part of our 4 week Thailand trip for our honeymoon. Originally picked the hotel as the beach looked incredible and it was in walking distance to fisherman's village, so despite it being a small hotel, there would still be lots for us to do. The great points were... - The hotel and grounds are beautiful and...

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for reviewing us and sharing your experience with us. I am sorry to hear that we were not able to deliver the experience Zazen is known for. Indeed when you stayed with us, Zazen and Samui was not at its best due to the weather and storms which were certainly frustrating for our guest. Anything...
