Stayed here for 6 nights and enjoyed every minute of it! Zazen has got to be one of my favourite hotels! It's so atmospheric, romantic and full of interesting artefacts to discover around the grounds.
We spent the first night in a garden deluxe room and the rest of the time in a garden villa, both were fantastic, but I preferred the garden villa as it was larger and more private. The decor and furnishings in the rooms were opulent and tasteful. The bathrooms were unique, didn't really suffer from a mossie problem, just remember to keep the bathroom doors closed!
The breakfasts were excellent, lots of choice and lovely food. In the evening the bar and restaurant had a fantastic ambience. Dined there several times and the food and service were very good. The wine list was extremely pricey, but this seems to be an issue in Koh Samui generally.
I highly recommend the Zazen cookery course, I was lucky enough to have a class to myself, learned a lot from the chef and got to eat the food I had cooked!
The hotel has a lovely Spa & gift boutique. The swimming pool is very nice although rather small. Guests were periodically offered complimentary fruit or a soft drink on the beach and around the poolside which was a nice touch.
I loved Zazen and would love to return, but unfortunately I wasn't that impressed with Koh Samui, it's been spoiled by tourism and there are so many more beautiful places to visit.
