“Paradise!”
Reviewed 9 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

If you close your eyes, you have the feeling you’re in the middle of the jungle! Peaceful, comfortable and so relaxing . . . Short walks to the beach and wonderful restaurants.

“A piece of heaven”
Reviewed 24 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

The last little bit of the road into Baan Zen is a little rough but so worth the trek. This little piece of heaven has all the amenities. Quiet and peaceful, just a short walk to the beach. Within walking distance to shops, restaurants and great massages. The house is very comfortable, the deck is over an estuary. My favorite spot was in the hammock. Will definately be back.

“Perfectly located water front retreat.”
Reviewed 18 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Baan Zen lives up to it’s name - A lovely villa to chill out and relax . The villa’s location is perfectly situated a 5 min walk in either direction gets you to the beach or the local village.
The descriptions provided for this property are perfectly correct and give a true picture of the property. We were not disappointed. As previous reviews have stated Ian is the perfect host providing enough food and drink provisions to last 24 hrs and a well documented information guide. I would recommend this property to anybody that wants to be close to food/beach with the feel of isolation. Every aspect of this property fulfilled our expectations.There is nothing that will disappoint you with this property.We like this property so much we would rent it again.

“This is unbelievably tranquil and beautiful place”
Reviewed 9 September 2017 for a stay in June 2017

I owe the owner, Ian, a review since long! I stayed at Baan Zen with my friends for a week in June this year. I booked it over Airbnb and never managed to review it there, so here it comes instead!

I would recommend this place to anyone, and I wouldn't hesitate to come back here, especially in the rainy season since it was so beautiful to hear and watch the rain from the deck of the house. It is really quiet, and located in quite a hidden place. Very nicely decorated and you feel relaxed just by entering the house. All the amenities were there, if there was a problem (we had a light that was flicking); Ian would be there and assist.
There are good places around for e.g. massage, cooking schools and nice restaurants. A few places are closed during low season but there were always something opened.

I am actually coming back for work in Bangkok in January next year and Baan Zen will definitely be in the back of my mind if I manage to go for more holidays! Thanks Ian for keeping available such a nice home in Koh Chang!

Baan Zen

Absolutely Perfect!

What an incredible place to stay! This truly was such a tranquil relaxing place to spend a holiday. It was so lovely to come back to each day and feel like we were walking home....only better. Baan Zen has all the amenities you could hope for on a vacation. With a wonderful beach only a five minute walk away and access to taxis, motor scooter rentals, shopping, massages and many restaurants only about ten minute walk in the other direction makes this home in a perfect location.
If you do rent a scooter there is plenty of space to park inside the property.
My favourite part was waking up in the morning to the sound of tropical birds and monkeys and going out onto the large deck to enjoy my morning coffee and breakfast on the huge deck over the estuary. Such a calm, peaceful, perfect place with plenty of seating as well as a hammock to lounge in.
