Zazen Boutique Resort & Spa, Bophud

Zazen Boutique Resort & Spa, Bophud

An updated review of Zazen Boutique Resort & Spa, Bophud written in October 2015 can be found if you click on this link.

On the Northern coast of Koh Samui Island, on the west side of Bophud Beach lies the small, charming and intimate Zazen Boutique Resort, Bophud.

A resort where you can feel at home? Where you will take your partner to heaven and your family to paradise. This little hide-away invites you to relax & rediscover yourself and your partner in beautiful, natural & tropical surroundings. You will experience in our idyllic tropical resort the perfect escape. Sounds like too good to be true, out of an 8 year experience on Samui and having had various friends stay here, I can agree to this.

Zazen enjoys a secluded setting at the end of an unspoiled bay. In this tropical setting, the low-rise resort has been especially designed to reach peacefulness in harmony with its natural surroundings. Nestled on Koh Samui's quieter, more traditional northern shore, Zazen stands on the west coast of Bophut beach amid lush gardens facing its own palm-shaded beach.

Zazen also has one of my favorite restaurants on the island. This place gets my thumbs up!

With all the facilities they offer, this is one of the medium - top resorts on Samui;

• 80 Meters of white sandy beach front
• Magnificent tropical swimming pool with terrace with sun beds and umbrellas
• Jacuzzi and Children's swimming pool
• Open-air beachfront restaurant and bar overlooking the Gulf of Thailand and featuring traditional Thai dancers twice a week.
• Beach front “Rouge Lounge” Bar with pool table
• Boutique with antiques & souvenir shop
• Internet Lounge with High Speed wireless connection & business center
• Beautiful outdoor Spa offering a whole range of treatments
• An all year round beautiful beach which is safe for swimming
• Jeep and motorbike rental
• Shuttle bus service & private limousine service
• Airport Pick-up and Drop-off (on request ) and Private Parking
• Baby-sitting service
• Laundry & pressing service• Room services
• Luggage storage

Complimentary services:

• Tropical garden with game of bowls (petanque) and table tennis area
• Beach Club with windsurfing equipment and canoes
• Library and parlor games
• DVD films service
• Confirmation of flight tickets
• Internet Lounge with high speed wireless connection & business center
• Free high speed wireless connection from the guests rooms and around the restaurant, bar, pool & beach

This resort ranks high on my fave list with a great location between Bophud and Maenam.

Hi Camille, I am torn between two resorts to celebrate my wedding at. Any pros and cons between Zazen or Le Meridien? Recommendations pls :) and thank you!

Zazen is a boutique hotel and most likely more 'intimate'. Both places will offer good value though and a great experience.

Thank you for such a quick response! Which hotel from the 2 may have a better beach for swimming? I read in some of your reviews that some resorts/hotels have rocky or shallow beaches that you'd recommend using their pools more.

Hi Mynt,

Haven't been to Le Meridien yet, so can't comment on their beach. Zazen has a small beach in front, pending on which time of the year you plan to visit, it may be suited for swimming.
