The Sarojin

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We have stayed in a lot of amazing 5 star hotels but the Sarojin just had that extra special feeling. We were very well looked after and the staff are truly delightful. From the rooms to the beautiful gardens it truly is a stunning place. The all day breakfast which is chosen from a menu and freshly cooked was truly delicious. We also enjoyed the local restaurants that are located just off the beach.

We have just come back from a week at the Sarojin for our Honeymoon. It is paradise and took my breath away. I have never stayed anywhere where the staff were so attentive and will definitely be going back. I would highly recommend the boat trip and snorkelling, we went out on the Lady Sarojin boat and snorkelled in the clear water seeing turtles swimming in their own habitat - amazing!! The lunch served on the boat was a seafood lovers dream, however, they catered for non seafood eaters as well. Can’t wait to go back!

This is a fantastic hotel right on the beach with stunning pool. The resturant good is more expensive than the beach bars near by but it is delicious. Breakfast is served from 7am till 5pm which means you can do a beach stroll or go out on the free bikes and then go in for brunch rather than have to be back in time. Everything is cooked fresh. Beautiful rooms and gardens, we had free use of the catermerang and paddle boards.

Me and my husband visited this hotel as part of our honeymoon. I have been meaning to do this review for ages now. Im not surprised it is an award winning hotel. The most stunning boutique resort set in Khao Lak. Set in what feels like a rainforest in the a scheduled private, peaceful luxury location. This hotel is indulgence to a max, at tension to detail is out of this world. We stayed here for 8 nights but, we easily could have extended our stay longer. Situated with a private beach on your door step with fantastic spa facilities (see separate review for pathways spa)and food. We loved the authentic Thai food at the Edge restaurant as well as the Ficus restaurant both amazing. Even the room service is incredible. There are lots of experiences and excursions available. One of my favourite was private dinning on the beach. A candle lit fine dinning experience. Such a romantic and memorable experience with our own personal chef cook Thai cuisine in front of us for is personally. We stayed in a pool residence suite, which was ultimate luxury! Idyllically tucked away with its own pool and shaded Thai garden pavilion in its own tropical garden. The room it self was huge with an open planned theme stunning outdoor look bathroom. The staff, were amazing from when we arrived to when we left. They made our stay memorable. The most friendly and helpful at all times. All I can say is if you ever get the opportunity to go to Khao Lak this is the place the visit. And I hope to return one day soon!

From the moment you are picked up from the airport, the Sarojin treats you like royalty. We spent 6 nights in a Spa Suite for our honeymoon and it was worth every last cent. Every member of the staff goes above and beyond to ensure that nothing is short of perfection. We had three spa treatments and each one was incredible. I especially recommend the Four Hands massage which will turn your body into a bowl of jello. Some other unforgettable aspects were the snorkeling excursion aboard the Lady Sarojin, the longtail boat excursion to Phang Nga Bay, the Thai barbeque on the beach, among others. And of course, the distribution of cold, scented washcloths just when you were starting to get a bit too hot. In short, our time here was unforgettable and we hope we can return in the future.

This hotel is out-standing! Go there if you possibly can! Firstly the staff are a team of the nicest, smiliest, welcoming people. They are also highly skilled and do a wonderful job. It is obvious that they belong to The Sarojin family and pretty soon you feel that you do too. A special mention must go to Khun Kade, the Resident Manager for his care and attention, Khun Mon for her wonderful service at the restaurants, Khun Sam for giving us lovely ideas of what to do, etc etc, but all the staff deserve a mention. Secondly it is heart-breakingly beautiful, the hotel buildings and gardens are immaculate, every corner is a picture, every view breath-taking. The suites and rooms are spacious, comfortable, well-thought out, everything is catered for, the beds are super comfy, the housekeeping is excellent. I would have liked some tissues in the bathroom but everything else is there. The hotel gives you a lovely beach basket to carry your things about in, towels are everywhere in abundant supply, fresh still water also. There are light silk robes in the rooms and plenty of hangers and shelves for unpacking. There is a fridge, desk for computer work, mosquito repellant spray which seemed to work, ironing board and iron for creased linen clothes! They have thought of everything. Our first night was spent in a Spa Suite which was magnificent! So spacious inside and outside a marble plunge pool on its deck with Table and loungers. Unfortunately we couldn’t have a suite for all our stay so we then had to move to a garden room. The hotel carried all our things over for us, it was no trouble. We were a little concerned about down-grading our room but we needn’t have worried, the garden room was lovely too. It was everything the suite was minus the lounge area and plunge pool. We still had our own outside area in front of the room with a two bed cabanna for shady rest. It was lovely. We looked at various pool suites which is the middle category and honestly the garden rooms are just as nice and the main pool is right there in front of you and the beach is right there too so you don’t really need a private pool. If we go back, which i certainly hope we will, I would opt for a Spa Suite as the space is wonderful, there are two loos (what a good idea!), And you get a spa treatment included each day. The food was wonderfully fresh, zingy and local. We so enjoyed the Beach lobster BBQ evening that is a must. Otherwise we ate at The Edge restaurant on the beach which was excellent, try their sticky rice and mango dessert, it’s wonderful. they have a happy hour for cocktails and drinks there which makes the drinks more affordable. They are quite expensive outside the happy hour which makes some guests go next door on the beach for a cheap beer! The spa was excellent, such a beautiful place, serene and peaceful. I had an excellent oil massage there. There are three beach restaurants just next door which are cheap and cheerful. There are also massage pavilions along the beach which seemed to be doing good business. It’s all there, you can stay in the cocoon of luxury of the hotel or venture out along the beautiful beach, its up to you. We had one wonderful excursion - a day snorkelling on the Lady Sarojin, the hotel’s boat, which was a day I will never forget. Everything is provided, the boat is super comfortable, the crew are knowledgeable and caring, the scenery breath taking, the snorkelling wonderful, perfect! Fellow guests were lovely we met other Brits, an Irish Doctor, a charming German couple, an Australian mother and daughter travelling together, all sorts. The hotel is smart, guests dress well but not formally. Dinner was usually long trousers for men, helps keep the mozzies at bay, although having said that they really weren’t a problem at all. There was a lovely guest cocktail party one night and everyone got quite dressed up for that. My husband took a jacket but he didn’t wear it. All in all a wonderful hotel and I can’t wait to return.

We stayed in the Montha spa suite 2 weeks in July 2017. This was our third trip to Khao Lak but our first staying at The Sarojin. We stayed at La Flora and JW Marriott in previous years. The Sarojin was our favourite. I would suggest taking some time to sit at reception and read the book on the history of the hotel – it is quite remarkable and a very interesting read! We enjoyed attending the welcome drinks reception/cocktail evening which was a good opportunity to meet the manager, Kade, and get to know him and his team a little better. We also enjoyed meeting other guests from around the world and sharing our travel experiences. Special mentions must go to the lovely ladies at the spa – Kung in particular – and Zel from reception who was always on hand to greet us when we returned from day trips, no matter what time of day or night. We enjoyed using the Sarojin car for trips into town etc. but this wasn’t always available, so the hotel recommended using local taxi driver, Kong, who was always polite, courteous and friendly. We used him often for trips out to dinner and he was always very accommodating. I celebrated my birthday whilst at the Sarojin and can’t thank the staff enough for their kindness and well wishes. At breakfast I received cake and flowers and the staff sang Happy Birthday to me. When I returned to the suite after a morning by the pool, the bedroom had been decorated beautifully! I have included photos to this review. Whilst the hotel itself is very quiet, we enjoyed exploring Khao Lak and found there are lots of excursions to enjoy and explore. On this trip we visited: Phang Nga Elephant Park (the highlight of our trip - please research it!), white water rafting, ATV ride through the jungle and zip lining. There are an abundance of fabulous restaurants to dine at in the local area - our favourite was Krua Thai which we could walk along the beach to from the Sarojin, bliss. Only a couple of very minor niggles… Housekeeping wasn’t always very timely. Often, we would leave for the day and ask for the room to be cleaned but would return much later in the day only to find that, despite our requests, nothing had been done which was a little inconvenient. Also, the bedroom television was faulty, and despite being repaired on numerous occasions, never quite worked properly and required us to call maintenance on a regular basis. Overall, we loved our stay at the Sarojin and enjoyed the pure relaxation of the beautiful hotel and surroundings. The spa is divine and the all-day breakfast with sparkling wine is delicious. We particularly enjoyed reading the 'recipe of the day' each morning and made note of them to take home and try our best to replicate! What makes The Sarojin special is the ‘never say no’ attitude of the staff. If luxury, tranquility and peacefulness whilst experiencing Thai culture is what you’re looking for then look no further…

We have stayed in some fabulous hotels over the years but The Sarojin is, without doubt, one of the best. From the cooling glass of pandanus juice on arrival, the level of service was exceptional. The staff anticipates your every whim, remembers your breakfast preferences from day one and bends over backwards to ensure you have a good time. Our pool residence had its own secluded plunge pool and shady sala and the spacious room had been thoughtfully appointed and tastefully decorated. The huge bathroom featured a massive rainfall shower as well as a power shower and massive standalone bath. Tea and coffee making facilities offered a wide range of beverages and fresh fruit was supplied daily. It would be fair to say we wanted for nothing. From a pair of nail scissors and handbag-sized insect repellent to a rattan beachbag, everything has been provided. Breakfast was waiter-served but we didn't feel the lack of a buffet as there was a comprehensive range of dishes on offer and we only had to glance up for someone to ask what we needed. The main pool area had a range of very comfy sunbeds under the trees and iced water regularly appeared at our elbow. The only slightly disappointing element was the beach area. The beach itself is beautiful, miles long with soft, fine sand and is perfect for a long walk. There are also several great value beach restaurants adjacent to the hotel. However there are two small niggles that stop the Sarojin from being perfect -it has only a small private beachfront area on which the sun-beds are rather squashed together, which is a shame; and no black-out curtains which isn't ideal when many guests arrive with jet-lag. But that aside, this hotel is bliss if you're looking for somewhere to relax.

This month we went back to the Sarojin, we were last there 3 years ago. It is still an oasis of peace and calm which you feel the moment you are picked up at the airport. No children under 12 years. We stayed in a wonderful pool room. The staff are amazing, they look after you so well. The all day breakfast is marvellous, no buffet, everything is freshly prepared and cooked for you. Nothing is rushed. The pathways spa is still excellent, the best massages I have ever had. This is the first time we have ever gone back to the same hotel, we will definitely be going back.

Have just returned from the fabulous Sarojin in Khao Lak and thought I would add some comments to the reviews so far posted. Before we went to Khao Lak we had read some of the reviews which in the main were extremely positive, but with a couple of silly reviews regarding minor issues or issues beyond the hotels control. So what you need to know….. Pick up - From the very start of the holiday we knew we had chosen well. The airport pickup was without any hitches and we were greeted with cooling face clothes, a choice of cold drinks and an iPad so we could choose the music in the car while we travelled to the hotel. Same on the return journey to the airport – and as always courtesy and genuine customer service throughout. The hotel provides superb rooms, we stayed in a spa suite and this included a good hairdryer, mosquito burner, mosquito spray for your skin, quality toiletries, fresh fruit in the room every day, fresh towels every day, beach towels at the pool or on the beach, WiFi speaker for your iPad music in your room, TV’s in both rooms if you want them (we didn’t and had a tech free holiday). I add these as it saves a lot of weight in your case – never travelled so light!! Reception staff were so welcoming on arrival, after a day out or generally if we had any queries. I borrowed the mountain bikes most days to go birding and it was superb to be able to get along the nearby cape via the quiet roads. Cold water given for the ride, safety helmet a must and a cool towel and water on my return – fab service. The reception area is amazing as you look out onto the water lilies in the main reception pool – fascinating watching the resident Little Egret getting an easy lunch every day. Also one day a baby Monitor Lizard strolled through the reception area – looked so out of place but the reception staff just looked at it as an everyday occurrence. A really exceptional point for us was the concept of having your cooked breakfast any time between 6am to 5.30pm. It was cooked fresh when ordered and there was no limit to how much you could order from the menu, including coffees, fresh fruit juice and sparkling wine. We tended to have fruit when we got up and then lay by the pool until 11.30 ish and then went for brunch This meant that we only had two meals per day and didn’t add the pounds we normally do when on holiday. . I had cold cut meats to start and eggs benedict with sides of hash browns, bacon and sausages, virtually everyday and never tired of the presentation and taste. My wife had fresh fruit and either pancakes or coconut yoghurt and thoroughly enjoyed it. The sparkling wine was a real decadent treat and lovely at lunch time. Great idea for the hotel in less waste from buffet style service and a very personal service with great staff in the Ficus restaurant for breakfast. The staff were fab, in particular Toey, O, Aoy (who helped us with very basic Thai phrases) and Trei (who helped point out a local spot for birdwatching – a keen interest of mine) – all the staff were great and so focussed on ensuring your stay was the best it could be. Food in the restaurants was very tasty – but like other reviews have said a bit pricey in comparison to local restaurants (of which there at least 4 or 5 within a few minutes’ walk along the beach). However good food with a different twist always costs a little more and their food is expertly cooked and very tasty. We arranged diving through Sam in the experience team through Big Blue diving and this was brilliant, a very professional outfit and the diving was amazing. We also did the Rachapraga Dam trip organised through the hotel, which was just the two of us, our guide Fear and driver Jo. Wow what a trip, beautiful serene place, lunch on a floating deck restaurant and use of a room, and kayaks. We saw Spectacled Langhars from the kayak, heard Gibbons howling in the forest and saw an Oriental Pied Hornbill, Grey Headed Fish Eagle and an Osprey – bliss. Brilliant trip which was well worth the cost. Fear was lovely giving us lots of information and being so chatty and Jo did a superb job driving us there – we felt very safe and supported. As we were in a Spa Suite we got 1 credit per day to be used in the spa. This was fantastic as you could use your credits towards various treatments, which we used for the Royal Thai couples aromatherapy massage on three occasions and my wife had a facial and I had the 4 hands massage. All were excellent and our masseurs were Ann, Nui, and Nana who were excellent, very professional and the treatments were so relaxing. Key was on reception and she helped us understand the options and treatments available – all in all an excellent part of the holiday. Our suite was extremely spacious and well appointed, no issues for us regarding the toilet glass door. It was kept clean and every day we came into a new towel sculpture, which was novel and was a nice touch. We tended to sunbathe by the pool most days and the supply of iced cold water was a lovely touch and so needed as the temps and humidity were high. Tu and Bo were the main suppliers of this service and they did a superb job – Tu also told me of nesting owls in the grounds, which was really nice, thoughtful and made you feel more than just a guest, as he showed a real interest. He also pointed out a Black Throated Sunbird’s nest above the Ficus restaurant to me – superb. As I have already mentioned I have a real interest in wildlife and the grounds are beautifully kept and there is wildlife all over the place as you would expect. Burmese striped squirrels are in the trees and are fed with fresh coconut at the pool area by Tu and Bo. Monitor lizards often walk through the grounds and the birdlife simply made my holiday extra special. In the hotel grounds and surrounding area I saw so many new species and it is evident that ensuring the balance with nature is important to the ethos of the hotel, which is to be commended. All was kept shipshape by the Operational Manager Kade, who was friendly efficient, and we were invited to his cocktail reception twice as we were there for two weeks. Overall the ambiance of hotel, attention to detail, special staff who take interest in your enjoyment of their hotel and country make this hotel extra special – simply put, the best we have ever stayed in to date – and we have been to the Maldives three times and never had such fantastic service from a truly exceptional group of people.
