My wife Katie and I recently were married at Zazen Resort. Kun Rio and the staff ensured that our day was fantastic and took care of every detail. Nothing was too much problem right down to the beautiful beach preparation. Ourselves and our guests had a wonderful stay and we are all still talking about how great the day was...

I know that this is something that isn't the fault of the hotel and is a result of the recent bad weather but the fact that much of their beach had disappeared had a huge impact on the privacy of our beach-front bungalow. I was very disappointed by this and wish that I hadn't bothered to pay the upgrade cost...

I was staying at Zazen hotel with my partner in November 2016. We booked only for a night, just to be sure that we don't get stuck in a place we don't enjoy. After a long trip from Bang Kok we arrived to the oasis and the wellcome was very good: we received refreshing towels and refreshing drinks. We got...

It's a very beautiful boutique resort! Well designed and good location. Very friendly staff and a stunning sunrise point. We have been many times with my husband in this resort. But need some vegan options in the menu of the beach restaurant. Hope you will here me. I like your resort!

Dear Alena, Thank you very much for spending your vacation at Zazen and thank you for your review here on TripAdvisor. Indeed we do not have dishes specifically labeled vegan, however, most of our vegetarian options can be prepared as vegan. To distinguish the options between vegan and vegetarian (and also other dietary options) is certainly something we have to...

Horrible management, for a boutique hotel they made us feel very insignificant. Management needs to work on hospitality and staff education. We saw the kitchen chef cough sputum up in the prep area and had coffee grounds in the coffee daily. If Thailand is a place where you want to try bugs, try the breakfast buffet... it is covered in...

We booked this hotel last minute when we decided to leave our pre arranged hotel due to a change of plans. We definitely made the right choice. The rooms were huge and unique with a lot of charm. The resort had a great pool with very comfy louge chairs and some very delicious cocktails. I would definitely recommend this hotel!
