“Loved Zazen Boutique Resort”
Reviewed 21 November 2007

My children and I have just returned from a beautiful week of relaxation at Zazen. The food was magnificent and the resort divine. It could not have been better. We can't wait to return!

The moment you enter the path leading to the resort, the atmosphere is inviting and relaxing. The gardens are beautiful, rooms are artistically decorated, and the reception area is welcoming. The resort-wide free internet access and availability of DVDs certainly added color to our vacation, especially when the torrential rains continued for days in Samui! The food at Zazen Restaurant is, without exaggeration, simply wonderful. We had a scrumptious Thai Discovery Seafood set for dinner (as an Asian myself, I was impressed!). The Asian dishes are creative, without losing its authenticity! But most of all, I am impressed by the staff. They are well-trained, very professional, and pleasant. Having lived in Thailand for more than two years, I must say this was my first encounter with excellent Thai service. Kudos to everyone at Zazen who made our pre-honeymoon unforgettable.

We recently had the coolest wedding at Zazen. As soon as you arrive at the resort you are looked after in your every need. It takes a bit of getting used to! Before you even think you may need a drink, something to eat or a hat to shade your eyes from the sun the Zazen staff are there to help.

Tucked away at the end of the beach Zazen provides privacy, beauty and really gorge rooms. We had 20 people staying and so saw a fair amount of rooms and they are all unique in their own way. Even the cheaper ones are beautiful.

Our only complaint is that anywhere you stay afterwards will seem pretty ordinary. :)

Zazen was everything and more than we expected and we will definitely be visiting again!

We spent the last three nights of our honeymoon at the Zazen Boutique Resort & Spa and had an amazing time!

Despite the rain we had unforgettable four days and will certainly come back again!

The friendliness of the whole staff was incomparable!

We stayed in Zazen for 5 days in July 2007. First we booked for 2 days, but when we arrived we changed it for 3 more days. It was wonderful! The Villa, the Restaurant, the little pool and the Service from the people working there. I have been to many hotels but nothing like this. We stayed first in Chaweng, but we were looking for a charming hotel to get engaged. Zazen was more than we ever dreamed of. Now we are dreaming of wedding at Zazen. Maybe in 2008/2009?

Zazen is a wonderful hotel. The staff are very prosessional and friendly and the hotel is very well run. We stayed in a garden deluxe villa which was very spacious and furbished to a very high standard with a lot of attention to detail. The pool is a little on the small side however it was never crowded so it did not matter.

The food was wonderful, we ate there several times and never had a bad meal. The Pad Thai was the best I have ever tried in Thailand.

Credit to Alex and Ti for getting it just right.

Simply one of the best hotels in Samui. The attentive staff, the location, the finest rooms. The owners, Alex and Ti, have done a great job by slowly building up this boutique hotel bit by bit, and making sure that everything is carefully nurtured. Loved the place, will stay there again, and hopefully soon.
