Wow! Where to begin? Zazen is a true haven. The staff is warm & friendly. The service goes above & beyond what anyone would expect. My husband and I booked a few nights here in a beachfront bungalow to celebrate our third wedding anniversary. We honeymooned in France and I have to say- Zazen was a far superior experience hospitality-wise....

Only stayed here for one night before we flew home to Australia but its great. Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are tidy and bed is very comfortable. Would definately stay here and recommend to friends. Restaurant is pricey but worth the money.

Visited Zazen for lunch on the verandah overlooking the beach. It's a great spot to relax and enjoy their delicious Thai food. The food is good, although they err on the side of caution when it comes to adding chilies and it could be more spicey! We also treated ourselves to the spa and had a very enjoyable body massage....

My husband and I stayed in zazen resort for 9 nights in October.
