A weekend at U Zenmaya
U Zenmaya Phuket is a charming seafront boutique hotel located half way between Patong and Kamala Beach. This resort is modest in size but quickly became popular because of its attractive infinity swimming pool and for the rooms facing the ocean. Overall the hotel is quite well priced considering the size of the room and the amazing sea views.
U Zenmaya only has one restaurant called Zeascape. located just past the lobby in the main building. It’s a spacious and very welcoming place where you will enjoy a large buffet breakfast every morning. The immense terrace in front of Zeascape is the definitely best part: a huge panoramic rooftop bar plus a restaurant is always irresistible. Here you can have dinner or even just a drink in one of the cool bean bags, it’s definitely worth a stop. Breeze Bar also serves cool drinks to enjoy in the fancy pool.
You can select one of the 5 room types: Superior (33-40 sqm), Deluxe Seaview (35-48 sqm) and the Suites Seaview (70 sqm). The best rooms are of course the Deluxe Seaview Pool Access (50 sqm), and the beautiful Suite Seaview Pool access (60 sqm).
We booked a Deluxe Seaview and it was large enough for our weekend. The room is well designed, with a lot of facilities, a good working station with plenty of plugs, a large TV set and the extra day bed. We particularly enjoyed the oversized outdoors Jacuzzi on the balcony.
U Zenmaya Phuket is a good, compact hotel for those seeking peace and relaxation. It is a little far from tourist areas and doesn’t have a large beach bur there is a free shuttle to take you to both Kamala beach or to Patong beach 5 times a day. The hotel also features Zensala Spa and a small fitness room

What you should know
