About Zazen Boutique Resort

Set on the beachfront of Koh Samui’s Bo Phut, Zazen Boutique Resort & Spa is a little gem of a boutique hotel in Koh Samui.

Zazen Boutique Resort is peaceful, relaxing and in a lovely beachfront setting, and offers an experience far removed from that found in some of the larger resorts in Koh Samui.

Zazen Boutique Resort’s location means that popular Fisherman’s Village in Bo Phut, with its restaurants, bars and shops is within walking distance (15 leisurely minutes) or a short taxi-ride (5 minutes).

The resort has a small swimming pool, a wonderful spa, exotic and beautiful gardens and a nice little lounge, bar and games area by the pool and beach.

Zazen Boutique Resort’s distinctive and personal bungalows are located right on the pristine beachfront, or set amongst verdant tropical gardens. The bungalows at Zazen Resort combine Thai and oriental touches with the latest mod cons in a smart tropical design.

The peaceful ambience, excellent food and charming character of the Zazen Boutique Resort lift it into a category, which, if not super luxurious in terms of hardware, certainly is in terms of experience and ambience.

We love the restaurant at Zazen, which remains possibly the best on Koh Samui, attracting people from all over the island.

Romantics will love the little cosy cushioned alcoves in the beach wall facing the sea – the perfect spot for couples.

What's so Special?

Zazen Boutique Resort is owned by Alex and Ti, a Swiss / Thai couple who have maintained the personal feeling through the growth of this resort from up-market backpackers resort to one of the most stylish boutique hotels on Koh Samui. We knew the resort from its early days, and it’s been quite a journey and joy to see how it’s matured.

Alex and Ti, Zazen's owners have ensured great attention to detail – and you feel that they really love their resort! We love Zazen too – it’s a great choice for a romantic honeymoon in Thailand. The gardens with winding paths, water features and stone statues, all romantically lit at night create a romantic flavour.

Bear in Mind

Zazen's pool isn't the largest in Koh Samui but is in keeping with the size of resort.

The beach isn’t particularly wide here and the sand a little bit course (it’s not powdery fine sand). The beach is quiet, clean and has safe swimming year round. Zazen has a beach service with loungers, cold towels, drinks service and refreshments.

Kids are accepted at Zazen, but it’s quite a ‘coupley’ resort in general.


Garden Deluxe

Garden Deluxe Bungalows offer 50 sq. m. of living space, an idyllic garden setting and a spacious veranda with sunbeds and table, just a stones-throw from the beach and the pool, through the lush gardens.

These bungalows feature parquet floors, huge mirrors and oriental artifacts, which add great character to the rooms.

King size beds have ultra comfortable mattresses and sumptuous fabrics. Floors are scattered with cushions and a daybed and Moroccan style lounge provide a great place to relax.

Balinese style open-air bathrooms feature a great Rainforest shower.

Zazen Restaurant has a super menu, a great beachfront location and a dreamily romantic ambience.

The atmosphere is sophisticated and intimate, especially at night when over one hundred candles illuminate the restaurant. Jazzy music mingling with the sound of the waves on the beach helps to make Zazen’s restaurant one of the most popular on the island.

Private dining in a Thai Sala or an alcove on the beach can also be arranged on request.

Rouge Lounge Bar is the pool and beachside bar-lounge where a decent coffee is served, and board games and a pool table are available.

Nearby Dining

Zazen is within walking distance or 5-minute taxi ride of Fisherman's Village in Bophut where there are several great places to eat.


Zazen has a superb spa and most guests staying at Zazen are enticed to sample at least one spa treatment during their stay.

The gardens are a real highlight at Zazen, beautifully landscaped and littered with Thai and oriental statues and scultpures. At night the pathways are romantically lit.

Zazen has a swimming pool close to the beach. The pool is fairly small but not excessively so for the size of the resort.

Many guests enjoy a lazy hour or two in the beachfront lounge bar where there are board games and books to enjoy.
