Whilst looking for our Honeymoon destination, we came across The Sarojin website and it was top of our list, dreaming of staying as we went through the photos on social media. When we went to a travel agent to book our trip, the hotel that came up first was The Sarojin and we knew then it was meant to be. We wanted somewhere really special as not only was this our Honeymoon, but my 30th birthday and our 10 year anniversary all falling in the same week. We were not disappointed. The Sarojin were amazing at helping us celebrate and made us feel so special. We had been in communication with The Sarojin ahead of our stay in regards to booking trips and communication was always timely and really helpful. When we arrived at The Sarojin, walking through the entrance is breath-taking and just so beautiful. We were greeted with cold towels, a drink and had a lovely chat with Nee. We were taken to our room, we were in 706, close to the beach and had booked a Pool room. If you are debating opting for a pool room then just do it!! The room had everything we needed and if it didn’t then Guest Relations would be happy to help. The rooms include a lovely straw beach bag which can be used, towels for outside use and inside use, toiletries etc. In addition to daily housekeeping the team come back in the evening too which is lovely. We had planned the Surin Island trip, which unfortunately was cancelled due the Covid-19 virus. This was a shame but the events team kept us posted, and we think it just means we will have to return again! We booked the Cooking Class for 2 and it was definitely a highlight of the trip. Chef Gogh took us to a local market and taught us about local ingredients. We had previously chosen what we wanted to cook on arrival – this was great as meant we could learn how to cook some of our favourite dishes. We opted for the Pavilion which was set up just for us and felt lovely and intimate. The whole morning was so well organised. We absolutely loved the cooking and got to have a lovely three course meal. We highly recommend this activity. We got given recipes to take home and have been practising. We imagined we would eat at the hotel a few times, and then venture out along the beach, however the food at The Sarojin is out of this world in both restaurants. Our passion is good food, and whilst people comment it is more expensive than those along the beach it is worth every single penny. Both restaurants are just fantastic. The all-day breakfast was lovely, and I highly recommend the banana pancakes which were just amazing and I really miss! We loved visiting the beach to watch the sunset - we ended up going down to watch everyday it was memorising. We loved playing cards during this time and having a drink by the beach at The Edge and enjoying Sak coming over for a chat. We took out the Mountain Bikes a couple of times during our stay and cycled to the nearby waterfall and other beaches. We were welcomed back with cold water and fresh towels. We treated ourselves to a massage in the Pathways Spa which was such a treat. A really lovely relaxing space and worth treating yourself to. Overall, we had the most wonderful stay, we were some of the last guests before Phuket and the Hotel went into lockdown. Even amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, it was a place of genuine serenity and relaxation - the most beautiful location, the most amazing staff and absolutely delicious food. We would return again in an instant! Read less

We went to The Sarojin to celebrate my birthday and I'm so glad we did. After a week in the wonderfully hectic Chiang Mai, a week of relaxation at The Sarojin was just perfect. We loved the lazy breakfasts, everything was delicious. For my birthday, we experienced the private dining under the wedding tree with our private chef. It was the most amazing meal and the staff did everything possible to make sure the experience was as special as possible. We even got upgraded from a pool suite to a jacuzzi suite for the last night which was a very generous gesture. Nothing seems too much trouble for the staff at the Sarojin, just can't wait to return. We had a couple of meals at the Edge but also tried a few of the restaurants in Khao Lak and further along the beach. Thank you for an wonderful time. Read less

We visited just before the world caved in & but got back to the UK without event. The hotel was everything we'd hoped for after not having been to Thailand for a few years. It's very peaceful with large beautifully-maintained grounds. The room we had was excellent and the only quibble we had was that there was no fan in the outside covered lounging area so too hot to use. The shower/bath area was especially good, comfortable beds, good space and the standard of housekeeping was very good. The staff are all lovely, which is one of the great Thai traditions, but good to experience again. The food is a really strong feature of a stay here and it has Michelin listing. The menus are varied and flexible and food is available in the main "Ficus" restaurant (all-day breakfast brilliant), the beach bar, "Edge" restaurant and by the pool, as well as in-villa dining. The setting of the "Ficus" restaurant is just lovely. The beach front is quite narrow because of adjoining beach resorts though they aren't intrusive but there's nothing they can do about that. All beaches in Thailand are public & at least the hotel's been allowed to put loungers and sun umbrellas on the beach - very well serviced by the team. The beach bar doesn't actually face west quite and to see the sun sink into the sea you have to get a lounger on the beach for a while with a drink in your hand. We had some great sunsets. The beach is massively long & perfect for walking (or jogging if you really must). There are a couple of great little beach bars a few hundred yards up the beach to the right which serve delicious tempura squid and prawns. The pool is very large, very warm and a decent depth. Again, very well- serviced. The hotel arranges loads of trips and we had a memorable snorkelling trip to the Surin islands with a superb lunch. Expensive but worth it. There are also lots of themed barbecues etc. on the beach but if you aren't into that kind of thing, and obviously quite a few guests aren't, the "Ficus" restaurant stays open as an alternative. The owners (not Thai) are very open to constructive comments, which they will seek on your return. Read less

Don't want to 'knock' the hotel as the hotel itself is excellent but some info for people like us where the pool and beach area are important. First of all - massage was excellent. Room was excellent - reminded us of our time in The Maldives. Food - excellent. Recommend doing the Michelin Dinner. Loved the 'all day' timing for breakfast. What really disappointed us and therefore, for us, meant we did not get value for money - was the 1). pool - just an oblong shape with no shade if you wanted to swim during the day. Lovely grounds (wouldn't described them as being in the 'Jungle' as one reviewer stated) so there was plenty of room to make an interesting shaped pool and to plant some trees to ensure part of the pool was in the shade during the day (a few sunbeds were in the shade for most of the day) and 2). The beach. Only a small part of it is allocated to the Sarojin and so although the Sarojin is adults only, the beach area isn't so there are children playing immediately adjacent (no problem - but just for info). Also all the trees have been removed from the Sarojin part and the sun brollies aren't that large so unless you don't mind being in the sun, you can only be on the sunbeds for a couple of hours first thing in the morning and then again very late afternoon. Also - despite only being a short distance from the Manathai area which had lovely sand and you can walk a long way out in the sea - the beach at the Sarojin has a lot of 'broken coral' so was painful walking on the beach and into the sea. Also once in the sea the depth keeps varying - this may be because the beach is narrower at the Sarojin area than the Manathai area. Hope this is of use. Read less
